I didn't want to clutter up the other topics/threads with just a list of song suggestions, so I thought this topic could be a central place to receive suggestions on songs that people on BTF want to hear remixed.
If you're suggesting only a few songs and the songs aren't in the Media Center, are hard to find/rare/old, and you have a high quality version of the songs it would be of big help to the mixers if you could attach them with your post/suggestion.

I had been waiting for this topic to be addressed for quite some time and Stephen Gucciardi aka the "Gora Punjabi" spoke about it in his most recent video. For those who don't know, he's a Religious Studies major/Italian & South Asian studies minor out of The University of Toronto and he has a lot of linguistics knowledge on many of the South Asian languages.
Enjoy it everyone and please share it with your friends:
"That being said, we will not be performing at Elite 8 this year. Though we didn’t get an ‘official’ invite, we were contacted by the committee a couple of months ago to discuss the possibility of returning to Elite 8 for a 3rd straight year. Again, I went to the team to see if they would be interested, and this time they were not. So we let the committee know right then that we were not interested this year. Why, you ask? Well, the main reason is we have been to Washington DC 4 times now. We wanted to focus more on a local competition in the Bay Area instead. And of course, we assumed the judging would be the same. And at this point, for us, it did not make sense to return to a competition that placed us near the bottom each year even though we put on extremely clean, energetic, creative, and entertaining performances both years. Should we have won first both years? I’m not saying that, but at the same time, it is difficult for a team to get motivated to practice for a performance that they have lost before even stepping foot on stage, and that has been the case both years at Elite."
You can give credit to Detective Basim for this finding I guess it's time to alter those predictions everyone.
