The LEGENDARY 12 Song Album Game!


Recommended Posts

It's simple. Each user has to copy and paste adding only one song to the album so in the end it's 12 songs.

--------------

THE TWELVE SONG ALBUM GAME RULES

* each album has 12 songs; you are allowed only ONE contribution per album

* you must pick a song that has been officially released. A "bootleg" recording of an unreleased song is not eligible here.

* whoever finishes one theme gets to also set and start the next theme. And so on....

* previous themes may be repeated but the previous picks must be located and re-posted so that no songs duplicate themselves between different volumes.

It is up to whoever sets the theme to clarify any ambiguities about it, so long as none of the basic rules above are compromised. Be sure to make sure you are editing correctly and not missing anyone's choices.

Please post as "track number > artist > song title", for easier and consistent reading.

Also, it helps me great in compiling this list if we could number the themes as we go. Please.

Cool?

please, when two people post at the same time and take the same track number on the album, can the second post to show on the board please be edited accordingly?

Be sure to look back at the last FEW posts before your contribution, just in case a fair entry has gotten missed.

I see in this case, it has been corrected already, right on.

It's no-ones fault, it's bound to happen.
