    Chosen Theme.png


    This is the continuation of our ‘Members Chosen Word/Theme’ task and each week when we vote on our favourite pickings, we will take a guess at who suggested the current word/theme.

    Non-Love Songs.png

    Nominate 20 songs about anything but love, relationships and romance

    [​IMG]

    Posting a link for each nomination would be ideal, that way others can watch/listen and decide whether they want to include that song in their final ten.


    If possible (not compulsory) try to avoid posting the videos as this slows down the thread.

    Staying in the same format. Once the nominations are complete, I will post the final list and everyone can then check out all the nominated songs and vote for their favourite ten from other member's lists.


    Duplicates are more than welcome, but they won't be included when we take the vote

    To clarify for any newcomers: The idea is, we all nominate songs we like (based on the title/theme of the thread). We then check out each other's nominations and pick a favourite ten from their lists.


    20 songs are the maximum, but if you don't have 20, anything less is fine.

    Everyone is welcome to join in and nominate 20 songs


    Last day for nominations is

    Thursday
    6th February

    I think that @Willie Oleson chose this. First sex, then no love at all.

    I have chosen my favourite songs and I'll rank them as I go along. A very exciting part of the process because I never know exactly what my top 10 is going to look like.

    1. Commiserations – Society @Richard Channing
    I don't know what it means but I find it totally spellbinding. And while I was listening to this song I wondered if they had sampled another tune, like the Fugees' Ready Or Not with Enya's Boadicea. It doesn't matter, of course, I'm just saying I got the same vibes from this song.

    2. The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald ~ Gordon Lightfoot @That Bowie Girl
    This was my most interesting discovery, for more than one reason because it's not without controversy. Talk about doing something else other than love songs!
    It sounds like a lovely, typical sailor ballad but it's about a (then) recent tragedy and I think it adds a dark novelty-quality to the song.
    Either way, it's something very different and I'm glad you've nominated it.

    3. Hand in My Pocket – Alanis Morissette @Emelee
    Re-appreciating Alanis, who has contributed so much to the sound of the 1990s. Note to self, Almighty and Klone Records forgot to cover this.

    4. Wig in a Box – Hedwig & the Angry Inch @Ome
    You were right, you could not have used this in any other Top Ten Theme. But does that make you a suspect? We'll see….

    5. Sound – James @Long Lashes
    Like, U2 with a nicer voice. (how dare I!)

    6. Line Of Fire – Junip @Richard Channing
    I think this has the unique quality of sounding simultaneously laid-back and epic, like The Connells' 74-75.

    7. King Of Everything - Boy George @Long Lashes
    I find it hard to shake off the schmaltz with these kind of autobiographical songs - or could it be something else? - but apart from that it sounds very, very good.

    8. Route 66 ~ The Rolling Stones @That Bowie Girl
    9. This Is The Day – The The @Long Lashes
    10. Whatever it Takes – Hollywood Undead @Ome

    I'm going to guess it was.....@Richard Channing's idea.

    Commiserations, commiserations….what could it be? It doesn't look like anything else...commissaris perhaps, but that's double s and a.

    Could I say "I don't approve of your commiserations" or "When will these commiserations take effect?" ?
