Alright, let's set this straight! :)

Theme: Take a normal theme (hero theme, supportive character theme, stage theme, etc.) and transform it into a boss theme. And next month should be take a boss theme and make it a stage theme. :)

That solves the themes for two months!

So from which game/s should the themes come from?

If we can finish this deliberation in a few days, we might be able to start this contest come December.

Hey, you don't have to stick to the love song theme, y'know.

Hey, I'm a hopeless romantic, I like that kind of thing.  :P

I think it would be good to choose a game which not only presents unique conversion opportunities (meaning doing boss-heavy remixes of stage songs, how many times have we all heard super-heavy-metal Vampire Killer remixes?), but also a game which has a fair amount of its music up on one of those sites.

The DS games I have all the MIDIs too, but since they were directly ripped they're not named and not mapped to GM. While it won't be difficult for me to rename them all accordingly and map the instruments to something decent (right now some of the drums are things like celestas and trumpets, and some melodies are gunshots and woodblocks, but thankfully Konami had pretty good MIDI mapping in these games so my work will me minimal), I won't have them all done soon enough for the first contest or two. So selecting a game that has a lot of MIDI options would probably be best.

I'd suggest SCVIV (Forest of Monsters as a boss theme? Yes, please.), personally. DoS wouldn't be too bad either. But I'm gunning more for SCVIV than anything, since it had a lot of especially atmospheric songs, thus providing a bit more challenge to the conversion.

Dont' restrict to a game, but let's say that people could be more interested in a remix of a less-remixed source. For instance, remixing VK isn't very interesting now, but trying to cover another track like "Walking on the Edge" will be more interesting (just CV1 examples, I'm not restricting to any game).

That would be nice, what about the 2nd and 3rd placers?

Let's ask Donoffrio to make Silver and Bronze of his entry....

EDIT: I took care of it.

@Chern: Alrighty, contestants are free to choose whatever midi of a normal theme they want to transform into a boss theme.

@darkmanx: Thanks for that. Tell him to send it to Jorge so he can add those to the awards list.

I'll start the actual contest thread, soon-ish.
