    The next round will be a theme

    Strings.png

    That doesn't just mean classical, any song, pop or otherwise, that has some good strings in it.

    Also, it doesn't need to be a string quartet or real violins, electronic strings are fine too.

    Hello and good morning[​IMG]

    There are many songs with strings in it, but it's usually not strings from start to finish (i.e. only during the chorus)

    It is indeed a good morning from me...



    As I understand it, I'm assuming it just means songs that have a section with (what the members see as) exciting, or remarkable, outstanding use of a string instrument. Something that stands out or that makes the song what it is.

    Happy Father's Day!:)
    Is this good enough?

    It certainly wouldn't be the same without those strings.
    And we can't all nominate Lindsey Sterling and Vanessa Mae tunes:lol:

    Yeah and that's a lovely sounding song, like a theme tune to a 70s soapy drama

    When the member sent me this theme they mentioned it doesn't need to be a string quartet or real violins, electronic strings are fine too and so I'm thinking anything with a good guitar riff too.


    Funnily enough, I've been listening to this which would easily fit

    Oh...I hadn't even thought of that.

    This is also very string-y

    Yay, now I can finally nominate all those songs about the odd socks you end up with after washing clothes.

    Is a string considered clothes-y enough?

    I'd say anything you put on your body that is made of some kind of fabric is qualified. A string is an item of underwear, so I would say it's a clothing word.

    Yes.


    After the mess, I created with Strings and guitar riffs, (not to mention the incredibly difficult issue of dealing with the tantrums off-site because the member behind strings threatened to quit Soap Chat, though not before stabbing me in the neck and gouging out my eyes) I decided to double-check and be sure with this one.

    It's that time again when I lose my friends
    Go walkabout, I've got the bends from pressure





    I will be away in September, living it large in Disney World without any kids with me, so there will be a slight delay before our next challenge and I believe this one could do with a few weeks to think about. It's definitely an interesting one to ponder and hopefully will bring some great results through.









    Our next theme will be

    You.png


    However, TAKE NOTE the member suggesting this one has this to say....


    "Not the word "You" but songs which each participant thinks says something about any aspect of themselves?
    It could be how they look, something about their personality, what they like doing, what they believe in, where they live, etc".

    We've all grown up a since then (I think) and also that was the old-crowd, this is for the in-crowd.
