Rock & Roll Cup '17 - FINALS NOW ON!

Postby fange » 16 Mar 2017, 02:03

Just want to gauge if anybody/how many would be interested in taking part in a themed Cup focusing on Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, 50s R&B-type music.
Think early Elvis, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, The 5 Royales, etc., (maybe even taking in more modern stuff like Psychobilly.)

Would you join in? Pop your name below if yes.

I jus try and make time, I guess. I love the music, and it's better than reading mind-numbingly endless conspiracy threads.


Or is it.....?

I'd prefer a more open definition. Whatever fits the participant's idea of a traditional "rock and roll" song, from whatever time period.

No thanks. I could probably come up with a decent enough list, but I know I'd get even more annoyed than usual with all the choices sounding similar, and you'd all just think I was a bigger wanker than you already do, if that's possible.

What's the format? I'm just conscious that I find it hard to find the time to vote properly, and I'm guilty about that, but I could probably come up with a list.

Song vs song - size of groups and length of list depends on how many enter.
