The Pegasus Awards

2023 Brainstorming Poll: Best Classic Filk Song Ideas

Best Filk Song Ideas | Best Classic Song Ideas | Best Writer/Composer Ideas | Best Performer Ideas
Best Adapted Song Ideas | Best Science Song Ideas
 

We solicited the opinions of filkers all over the world to compile these lists. By definition, a brainstorm is a way of generating a lot of ideas. It is important at this phase to note that what is sought is every single idea, regardless of its eligibility or accuracy.

While we do try to correct spelling, attribution, and filter out ineligible songs; there is no guarantee that all the songs listed here are actually eligible. At the end of the day, these are the titles/attributions as they were given to us by the community at large. Should you find something we missed, please feel free to email us at pegasus at ovff dot org with any corrections.
