Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

This month we have some sad news, or maybe it was sad music. Your task is to identify the songs. There are 20 songs, and each song has a 5 second clip. But they all evoke sadness in somone.

Again, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.
This month's prize is sponsored by me!

Rules
Do not share information or ask for information from other GameFAQs users that may help you gain an advantage in this competition. Consulting family and friends in real life, who do not plan to partake in these competitions, is fine. If you are caught cheating you will be barred from future competitions and any posts will be moderated with a karma loss.

To Enter
Send a PM to me (AssultTank) with your answers. In your PM, please use the subject line "November Competition Entry" and make sure to number your guesses.
Example:
1. game - area/song
2. game - area/song

Scoring & Prizes
You will receive three points for guessing the correct game and 2 points for the name of the song or area the song can be heard in.

Prizes are:
1st Place: 40 Karma
2nd place: 30 karma
3rd place: 20 karma
4th place: 10 karma
5th place: 5 karma

In addition, two randomly-selected (non-blank) entries that did not win karma will also receive a 5 karma prize. So even if you have no idea what the correct answer is it may be worth participating, as you have a shot at the random prize!

Tied Entries
If there are multiple submissions that rank the same, they will all get that rank's prize, however this will bump down all lower ranked submissions by 1 rank. For example,
2 entries tie at 45 points for first place, 1 at 44 points, 1 at 41 points, 1 at 40 points, and 1 at 27 points.
In this situation, the 45 point entries would both receive 1st place. the 44 point entry will take 3rd place, the 41 point entry will take 4th place, and the 40 point entry will take 5th place.

Is it just my browser or something or does the track not play?
There's a mystery to be uncovered here, that's for sure. And I get the feeling the truth is beyond my wildest imagination.

Thanks, that did it. I got so used to using the stock browser on my tablet.

Yeah, I'm gonna send Allen another reminder on the August and October ones... <.<

I have to time it so that it pops up when he's working, otherwise, I think it gets buried.

Also, I've got recorded a small behind the scenes video showing some of how I make these... <.< I'll post it after I announce the winners... <.<
