Should we have some rules, say nothing later than 1963 or something?

I'd say no, but on the pro side it would obviate my perverse desire to include Uriah Heep's rock 'n' roll medley in my list.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

We should vote then. I say if it's really going to be a "rock 'n' roll" cup, then it should only include pre-British Invasion songs. But I'm perfectly willing to go along to get along.

2 groups of 9 players - 8 songs each. A bye week somewhere in the group rounds for each person.


Hang on- didn't you say three groups of 6, five songs each???

You're welcome to my spot if you like. Will be hard pressed for time this week to do a list.

Nah, Osgood suggested that, but I was thinking that'll be too few songs. 8 songs each is a proper list, for me.

No, the voting has spoken, over in the R&R Cup thread in the Other Cups section...

fange wrote:Well, it's an interesting mix so far. The poll shows 7 votes for allowing later songs as opposed to 5 for only 'period'.

Therefore, i'm not gonna be a dictator about this - the time frame for your song choices will remain open.

**Songs recorded after the period between the late-'40s & early-'60s CAN be entered.

However, all competitors please take note that some voters may mark them down considerably for this.

Hey, bhoy. Let's see if we get another couple over the next day or so; otherwise, if someone drops out out the week ahead you can grab their spot. n/e said maybe him, but don't be too hasty Maarts. I'm don't need you lists for at least another week, so take your time.

Assembling mine and sending tonight/tomorrow. Thanks for the added time - work and personal responsibilities have added up this week.

Bump!

Has anyone seen hatz, martha and echolalia around recently? Hope they have seen the due date.

:evil:

You can't post Honey Hush eight times in a row, Frank.

What else are you going to choose?

How many rockabilly bands does Bristol have, anyway?

All right, I'm going to submit mine tonight, unless I change my mind. It's too easy to include R&B songs as I know that's what BCB, en masse, opts for. I also still can't figure out the youtube posting rules. Fange will help out with that, fortunately.

As pb has dropped out, i've messaged bhoy to see if he still wants to play.

The start date will depend on getting all people and all lists in, i guess.

Good news - bhoy is keen to take pb's spot, so we are still ok for numbers. Just got to get the last 5-6 lists in, and straighten out all these doubled up tracks.

Whew.
