Hi Pan - would you be interested in swapping your date or adding the 25th of Sep?

Essentially, if we can't find any takers for the 25th, we'll have to punt as I've got my head in some other stuff at the moment.

I'll do the 25th. If someone want's to take the december date it's fine by me. If not, I'll just do both.

Cheers

Pan

Sounds good Pan! Thanks!  I've switched you from 18-Dec to 25-Sep.

That gives someone the opportunity to take 18-Dec as their date since we now have a vacancy...  come on and step up!

Hi everyone - I've not heard back from eaglerockindaddy on today's SOTM (23-Oct). If nothing has been posted by this evening (EST), I have a topic that I can post.

Any takers for the 18th? It's easier than it looks, and so satisfying once you've done it!

Bumping again for the 18th...  it would be wonderful to have a new contributor take the reins for this last one of 2015!

I'd just add that it seems to me that it is not necessary to choose songs for which you need to find a long list of versions of for this - the way many folks have done so far (not that's there anything wrong with that  :P). Treating a singular tune in with some other approach is totally cool as well.

Well said, Uncle Bud...  the only criteria for the SOTM is that you find it interesting enough to bring up and that it be related to CB in some way.

I know I said "last", but that was a figure of speech.

In all seriousness, I would like to encourage anyone who has enjoyed the SOTM posts in any way but has not yet contributed to take a crack at it.

Hey Frank,

I just looked at the wikipedia entry for a well known song I'm sure a lot of Weenies have interest in and it shouldn't be too much trouble to cull an interesting post from it. It has been well recorded by many artist in several styles through rock and roll, so there should be a ton of youtube examples, including quite a few from the prewar era setting the tune to different lyrics. So sign me up for Dec. 18th. May not be until the end of the day (west coast time) but I have that day off, so should have some free time to work it up.

So - was this a worthy endeavor in 2015? I'm curious as to whether people found this interesting enough to pursue in 2016...  if so, what changes would you make, if any...  was the timing too frequent/infrequent? It won't hurt my feelings if you didn't find it interesting enough to want to contribute or participate even by reading a post...  I really would like to get reactions to the experience and to put together a direction for 2016.

Hi Frank,
I've quite enjoyed the Song of the Moment since you introduced it last May.  I've enjoyed the educational aspect, hearing versions of the songs I'd not heard before, just seeing what songs people select, and especially, perhaps, when people post their own versions of the songs in question.  I would be happy to see it keep going, and can't think of any modifications to the format that seem necessary from my point of view.  It's possible that once a month would be less onerous to keep going, and in the natural course of things, some songs end up being discussed/viewed/contributed to more than others, but that's just an indication of where peoples' interests lie.  I think it was a great idea, and has played out really well thus far.
all best,
Johnm

Agreed, a very enlightening series of discussions and I'd vote it should definitely continue. Like John, I particularly like hearing the new individual takes on a given song.
