OLD TIME ROCK 'N ROLL TOURNAMENT
 
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-_ua4E1x8xx...-Wallpaper.jpg


It's been a long time since we had a song tournament, and I feel the urge to host one again. So, let's do this!


Only classic rock songs from the 90's and prior are permitted in this tournament!


Each player gets to nominate 16 songs!


Let's go...

Come on MoFo's! This will be fun!

Citizen Rules 04-17-19 01:46 PM

You know you're getting old when you see a song tournament for only classic rock songs allowed...and you think yes! this one is for me...then you find out 'classic' means the 1990s:p Just thought that was funny:)

Sounds like a good idea though:up:

Re: OLD TIME ROCK 'N ROLL TOURNAMENT
 
I'll probably sign up for this, but I'm at work so I'll have to wait until lunch to post my noms.

lenslady 04-17-19 02:02 PM

I have no idea how a tournament works, and I hope I don't mess this up and I' ll try to catch on as we go along- but I could NOT resist joining in on this great topic. Just off the top of my head , here's my list:

Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
Positively Fourth Street - Bob Dylan
All Through the Night - Cyndi Lauper
Material Girl - Madonna
C'est La Vie ( (You Never Can Tell )--Chuck Berry or Emmylou Harris
Against the Wind - Bob Seger
Sympathy for the Devil - Rolling Stones
Back in the High Life Again - Steve Winwood
Layla - Slowhand (Eric Clapton and Derek and the Dominos) )
All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
Mr. Soul - Buffalo Springfield
White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
Walk This Way - Aerosmith
Not really rock n roll but it's great:
Back in the Day -Ahmad
You probably never heard of it but it's terrific :
Apricot Brandy- Rhinocerous


And last, mojo, but certainly NOT least -
I Got My Mojo Working - Bonnie Raitt
(along with Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Etta James , Canned Heat , etc. etc.)

Good to see you join Lenlady! Nice songs too. It's been a loooooong while since I joined a tournament but this one looks extra fun, so I'll mull it over some:p

I think it would be, but itís time-consuming to come up with 16 songs.

mojofilter 04-17-19 04:26 PM

Re: OLD TIME ROCK 'N ROLL TOURNAMENT
 
@lenslady, thanks for taking part. Great nominations.


However, you will need to hyperlink each song title to it's youtube link.


Go to the song's youtube video, copy the link.


Highlight the song title here, click on the hyperlink button, paste the Youtube link, change the www to m


Let me know if you have any questions.

It's never that time-consuming when you know your music.


16 songs is nothing. I could have made it 20 :)

Yes, it's crazy!


I can't believe that in a year, the 80's will be 40 years ago. Surreal!

I do have a question. :
HHHEEEEEELLLLLPPPP !!!!!!!!!!

😳




Ah phooey;
I knew there was a catch to this.

😮. I mean I had no trouble picking out songs, I' m filled to the brim with songs.
I could come up with another 16 songs in a nano second.

But what's this you're saying about the hyperlink. And the m for www???? I don't want to alarm anyone here, but this may all be beyond the wall I usually hit in my abilities of cyber/techno deduction.

I' m not even sure I could do this on my device- it doesn't seem to let me copy an entire link.

Well maybe I could think about this overnight and see if there's a way I can manage it. In the meantime, I may wander over to the Star Trek TOS thread, get in the transformer, and see if there's a way I can get Mr. Spock to assist me in this.

In the meantime- this looks like a great thread, mojo , which, even if I can't join in, I will surely be following from another planet.

Beam me up Scottie :)
