    The themes are largely meant to be challenging - to require the kind of thought that reflects an insight into an actual understanding and knowledge of the music itself rather than the ability to simply type the theme into a search engine and reply with the first of two or three responses regardless of its suitability as an answer which is often spurious at worst and dubious at best.
    I have the feeling this has been going on for some time and it makes the game not fun anymore, for me at least. Maybe we should add some comment about the song, why do you think it fits, why do you like it, where did you hear the song...

On another site I defined a theme as "songs with the name of a continental European country in the title" only to receive replies like "Norwegian wood".
    Completely seconded in thought and theory in regards to the playability of themes - before laying one down the theme creator should have at least five replies in mind in order to ensure that it is in fact a viable theme that can be played with responses that honour the integrity of the concept. Playing fair - whether in the creation of themes or responses to them - is a sign of respect for your fellow forum members and the effort they put into what appears upon this thread.

    Without being continually challenged by one another this really quite entertaining game will eventually sink to a level of inconsequential insipidity and irrelevancy which will effectively end its continuance.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

    I agree that unless it is completely trivial, it would be nice to add at least an explanatory note to state why the chosen song fits the theme. To take the continental European countries example, no note is required to understand why e.g. Remember Russia fits the theme, but in the present one we could add the original version as a note.
