Song of the Week volunteers/schedule

Postby KarenZ » Thu Jan 14, 2010 9:41 am

Folks,

Last month we talked about resurrecting the Song of the Week (see below) after The Day After Everything Changed was officially released. Let's start next Monday. Shall we go through the songs chronologically? I'm happy to do whatever you all prefer....but I would appreciate having different individuals start the discussion each week. Any volunteers for next week? Shall I make a schedule like we've had in the past?

1. Annalee = MonicaR (Jan. 18, 2010)
2. Rose Tattoo = Patti (Jan. 25, 2010)
3. River Road = Sue Ellen (Feb. 1, 2010)
4. The Day After Everything Changed = AndaleOrbea(akaDean) (Feb. 8, 2010)
5. Lights of Vegas = KarenZ (Feb. 15, 2010)
6. Hurricane Angel = Becky (Feb. 22, 2010)
7. Heaven is Where You Are = KarenZ (Mar. 1, 2010)
8. Dragonfly = KarenZ (Mar. 8, 2010)
9. Sometime, Someplace = PaddyinthePub (Mar. 15, 2010)
10. Once Upon a Summertime = KarenZ (Mar. 22, 2010)
11. Waking Up to Me = PotatoPicker (Mar. 29, 2010)
12. Walking After Midnight/Change = Jela (Apr. 5, 2010)
13. Cotton's Burning = SueEllen (Apr. 12, 2010)
14. Paper Dolls = Jela (Apr. 19, 2010)
15. Nothing Left to Take = PotatoPicker (May 3, 2010)

There was some discussion in the thread started in the Breakin' Through the Radio Forum about the new CD when the fundraisers received their copy.....but how 'bout if we resurrect the Song of the Week after the CD's official release date in January?

I'd LOVE to take Annalee!!!!! I have a funny story about that song that I don't think I have shared with you all.

I like the chronological order idea!

I've been waiting all year for this ! :)

I think taking them in order through the CD might be the simplest.

I can volunteer for any you want Karen (let me know by Sunday night), though I am partial right now to Waking Up To Me and Nothing Left To Take. But whatever I can do to help out......

OK....chronological order it is. MonicaR, you're up first with Annalee. :)
I hope others out there will volunteer! Just tell us what your interpretation of the song is and/or what you like/dislike. Don't fret too much about it. There's no right or wrong; good or bad. This will serve as an opportunity for the core purpose of the discussion board to come forth - to discuss! :)

I edited the list above and added names of volunteers.

And if someone wants to take one of the two I have chosen feel free - I wasn't trying to hog all the songs :) Though I am more than willing to say a few words about them both.....

Pam and I have already had a few discussions/debates on this and I would love to lead the discussion on this one. We may even get her to take some time away from her busy schedule (debating me :P ) to chime in here. She signed on to the forum last year with the clever handle of mrspaddyinthepub...:shock: :oops:....So much for stealth and anonymity. :P

Sometime, Someplace rocks!!!

Karen and all,
I'm not sure if I'm worthy...it's such a heavy topic....but I just returned from my first visit to New Orleans and would be glad to lead off the discussion of "Hurricane Angel" if no one else with more knowledge and insight volunteers for this song. I'm still just haunted by all that I saw in the Lower 9th Ward.

Of course you're worthy! :) I've put you on the schedule....and put myself down for "Dragonfly".

Thanks everyone!

Folks,

Is there a volunteer out there to start a discussion next Monday for "River Road"? Now's your chance! :)

Yay! We have a volunteer for next week! Thanks Sue Ellen! :)

Only four songs still in need of a volunteer to start the discussion, so please consider doing so! :)

Karen I just went to the lyrics page song play page for River Road for a quick listen with the headphones on and while I love this song and enjoyed it again just now I also want to say that it's a little unsettling to listen along to the song and how the lyrics don't match exactly. I only say this because I feel newbies arrive daily to the site and might think there's less than earnest attempts to take the time and get this right. I know songs go thru lyric changes and all.....but this release has been out long enough I think to say that Ellis has given his final answer. :P Who Wants Ellis to be a Millionaire? I know I do. Thanks Sue for grabbing the reins for River Road and thanks Karen for all you do, too. One last thing, have we lost the FONT COLOUR option to the right? Noticed a while back there were no colors to choose from. Thx again.

Paddy, here's an example of how to change font color.

Here's me green with envy that you knew it was this easy.

Paddy,

I'm gonna have to start calling you eagle-eye. ;-) I cut and pasted the lyrics with what I had transcribed, so I hope it's more to your liking. :)

Regarding the font color.....I noticed that recently too and have been meaning to e-mail slab about it. Sorry about that. (I think it must have happened when the website went through the re-design.) In the meantime you can simply type color=red (or whatever color you want) between brackets then close the color again between brackets. Do you know what I mean? I'll e-mail slab though and see if he can fix the problem.

OK.....I edited your post above with an example of how to change font color. If you go in and pretend to edit your post above, you'll see how it's done. :-)

Thanks, eagle-eye! :-)

color is red color is red may day mayday bracket open bracket close back slash help kelp help please......Karen, just havin fun there....

But seriously, just listened again to River Road. The new lyrics look great thanks for doing that tonight BUT I have a new problem. I'm listening again tonight and at the top of the song you have the lyric EXACTLY as I always thought it should be ONLY I hear it different NOW

The line is:

There's a golden moon, risin in the fields

But I'm hearing:

There's a golden room.......risin in the fields
There's a golden ruin.........risin in the fields

I always thought it was moon, too.

But it's not a "M" sound at the word.....

It's an "R" sound....room or ruin or r????

Help!

Paddy and all,

Slab says:
phpBB is using depricated code, no longer recognized by new browsers to show the background color choices. they are still there, but they don't have any color in them. An upgrade might help.

I choose NOT to go through another upgrade. We can live with it as is....especially now that you know how to manually type the font color code. :-)

Karen

:oops: I keep forgetting to send PotatoPicker a reminder that he's up to bat this week for our last Song of the Week. I just finally remembered, so hopefully he'll get something posted. :-)
