    Nominate 20 songs that where the title words begin with the same letter

    coollogo_com-186431192.gif

    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.

    coollogo_com-84131652.gif

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



    Staying with 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
    Saturday 2nd December

    I still got 35 other titles not mentioned yet, so I guess the others won't be struggling with their lists.

    A little bit older & wiser every year:cool1

    But there must be thousands of songs to choose from. Just after I had posted that message I could add another 10 titles to the list (even without the many ABBA songs)

    In addition to the restrictions of the round, I set myself the following rules for this round:

    • All must be in my music library (this always applies to all my noms anyway)
    • Each artist can appear once only (with the exception of artists who've recorded under different names such as George Michael and Wham!)
    • There must be at least two different words in the title (which ruled out oodles of songs like Never, Never, Never)

    Here is what I was left with:






    Funny, Familiar, Forgotten Feelings
    - Mandy Barnett

    Chattanooga Choo-Choo - The Shadows

    Sweet, Sweet Smile - Carpenters

    Bye Bye Blackbird - Alison Moyet

    Whispering Waves - Donna Summer

    Picture Puzzle - Shirley Bassey

    Conociéndome, Conociéndote -ABBA (if anyone wants a pointer for this round, ABBA have oodles of alliterative titles. Which is something I hadn't noticed before this round).

    Beat Boutique - Alan Hawkshaw

    Sweet Sacrifice - Evanescence

    Winter Wonderland - Faith Hill

    Sally’s Song - Amy Lee

    Greatest Gift - Tina Arena

    My Man - Lea Michele

    September Sun - Steps

    Wearing White - Martina McBride

    Splish Splash - Barbra Streisand

    Cathy’s Clown - Reba McEntire

    Spanish Steps - Van Morrison

    Cici Creepies - Marco Beltrami

    Finer Feelings - Kylie Minogue










    Funny, Familiar, Forgotten Feelings - Mandy Barnett
    Chattanooga Choo-Choo - The Shadows
    Sweet, Sweet Smile - Carpenters
    Bye Bye Blackbird - Alison Moyet
    Whispering Waves - Donna Summer
    Picture Puzzle - Shirley Bassey
    Conociéndome, Conociéndote -ABBA

    Spanish Steps - Van Morrison
    Cici Creepies - Marco Beltrami
    Finer Feelings - Kylie Minogue





    Incidentally, a number of the songs that jumped into my head for this round I couldn't use because they don't have the same first letter for every word of the title even though I consider them alliterative. Like The Way We Were, Wild Is The Wind, Day By Day. It was fun to have that extra challenge here.

    I've really enjoyed myself this round. A great theme, thanks to Emeliz, and the nominations have been just wonderful. Some great discoveries balanced with some established favourites. Perfect!

    With my votes, I've carried over my challenge for the title to have at least two different words starting with the same letter, which made the task of whittling down all those fantastic songs a little easier.



    1. Anytime At All
    - Alison Moyet @The Wise Willie From Oleson
    This is a gorgeous new discovery from me and it's led me onto The Turn Deluxe Edition. My wallet doesn't thank Willie, but my ears do.

    2. De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da - The Police @Ome for Christmas
    I've always loved the name of this song - as well as the song itself - and it's perhaps the cleverest entry for this round.

    3. Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol @Kristin Kringle Channing
    The poignancy of this song always used to grab me when it came on the radio, but I never knew what it was called. This has reignited my love for the song.

    4. Dirty Dice - Katy Melua @Emeliz Navidad
    A reminder that I need to check out more of Ms Melua's work. Her singing voice always sounds like a Welsh accent to me, which is charming.

    5. Bubblegum Bitch - Marina & The Diamonds @Sparkly Lashes
    OK - I admit I gravitated to this one for the great title, but turns out it's a reeeeally catchy song too.

    6. Pim Pam Pom - Pickel Nickel Orchestra @The Wise Willie From Oleson
    This is lovely. And it reminds me of Mike Oldfield's In Dulci Jubilo which is perfect for December.

    7. Sleeping Satellite - Tasmin Archer @Kristin Kringle Channing
    I enjoy songs with non-obvious titles like Chasing Cars and Sleeping Satellite. This is a longtime favourite of mine. Tasmin has a gorgeous, soulful voice.

    8. Mirror Man - Talk Talk - @Sparkly Lashes
    This one scores for the alliterative double whammy of song title AND group name. :clap:

    9. Push Play - Miriam Bryant - @Emeliz Navidad
    This is a completely new artist and song to me and I really like what I've heard.

    10. Bad Boys - Wham! @Ome for Christmas
    Another longtime favourite. Early Wham! is just soooooo good.

    I have listened to that Franz Ferdinand song many times now and I'm definitely going to buy that CD. Roll on February!

    Me too, I've been trying to find other songs from the album and nothing else has been released yet. The song titles on the new album sound interesting though :)
