1-3-1 Challenge (No.5)

Hi Everyone

I couldn’t help but notice how many familiar faces had sprung back up here and taken advantage of the Gold Sale recently offered. And now no matter whether you are Blue or Gold you have access to a greater song choice than before.

It made me think, wouldn’t it be nice, just to spend a little time together in one place, sharing songs and having fun again?

With changes around the corner and a new site on its way, I didn’t want to bring back ‘EAW’ in its old format. Our memories will always be precious.

So, I want to keep it simple.

This challenge will run from Sunday 27th September to Sunday 4th October 2020.

This challenge is open to everyone – new and old, Blue and Gold

Everyone is still a winner we've never been a contest – the winning is in the taking part, sharing, and caring.

The new challenge will be in a 1- 3 -1 format as follows:

One word – and even though it is one word, it is open to so much more! The description will explain how.

This first challenge word is ‘Colour’… you can search for a colour in a song title, lyrics or band/artist name! Your recording does not have to be a new one either and you can post duets.

Three songs – yes, let’s try and keep it down to three for now, and let’s try and be generous. For each song you post, listen to three other people’s songs in the challenge, then post your second, do the same again and then your third.

One Week – I’m a bit on the lazy side! Our old EAW challenges originally ran 2-3 days and virtually non-stop – live chat and weekends included! I recognise we are all busy, so, I want this to be a time to chill, drop in when you can and enjoy.

Please add your songs in the following format:

Name of Song - Artist:
Link:

If we can keep to a regular font size to make it easy for accessibility that would be great. If you are also able to put a link back to this challenge page in your song description to help spread the fun, even better!

Thank you! I’m looking forward to hearing you and getting to know you better! Or catching up with what you've been up to

My song for this week – is:

‘Little Green – Joni Mitchell’

Hahaha! You can tell I'm a newbie, Mike! I wasn't even thinking anyone needed one. I just wanted to stick a piccie in the box up top... I guess I could have made it smaller ;) Thank you!

Everyone feel free to use Mike's banner pic or just add the link to the topic if you are not a banner person :) Heheh.

I think mine was probably big enough to be a background and a half! :P

And Yayyy!! You added a song! It was soooo quiet in here, I wandered off up the road to recycle glass and to the corner shop to buy ... er... um...

I think if anyone does remember me, they will remember how wordy I can be, Rhonda! If I don't get more songs ... I'll, I'll word you all!

Like, if I don't get more songs, I'll be fetching me 'Golden Slippers' (?) and 'I'm Gonna Walk Dem Golden Stairs' and entering 'My Isle Of Golden Dreams' <---- All songs on Snap if you search 'Golden'.

They say... Silence is Golden - but not on MY challenge, hehehe. I'm here to play...

I am newbie, though I am now getting familiar with the same friends you knew then
and now, I am glad you started a new challenge for me to join. The group here are
a fantastic group of people and little by little I am starting to get to know them really
well and liking them a lot

My first song is a fav classic , I am hoping most of you will remember this group and will
bring back some good memories

I didn't mean to rush things but I've done my first listen to 3 great songs by 3 truly great

Gooood Evening everyone! I hope you are having a great day!

The sun has gone down this end so I'm in for a few more listens. Not that it depends on the sun going down before...

Big welcome to Paul! Yayyyy you found us, love me some Blue Velvet and to Snagelpuss - you have entered two of my favs, Whiter Shade of Pale is a classic!! And well, Brown Eyed Girl, what can I say!

Thank you both for joining in! I am looking forward to hearing you both.

Hiya Bev!!! Good to see you!

No, it can be old or new. I'm happy to let folks air songs to get more listens, we've sung some great ones over the years.

I was looking at the Blue songs yesterday and I spotted this one by Barbra! I didn't know it and had a wee look on YouTube! It's really cute! Excellent choice!

Jumping in

EDIT: Bev Sept 23rd is like yesterday to me! Heh. Excellent rendition of a fairly new upload! I love that we can access all these new songs.

Owww, wot? No tunes???? Bahhh.

As I am 'thinking' of having an early night (thinking being the operative word...) I will add two links to help your creative juices. I have no idea whether songs are available but the first link lets you listen to them. Search first maybe?

1) Songs with a Colour in Their Title: http://www.smoothradio.com/features/top-songs/songs-with-a-colour-in-the-title/

2) The Best Bands with Colours in Their Names: (warning they like to throw ads at the page) but there's 115 listed on there! *EDIT - helps if I actually leave the link! Oops - http://www.ranker.com/list/color-band-names/ranker-music

And okay, since we be quiet and I'm twiddlefuddling me fingers, I'll add another old one from me... I dud this one last year:

Black Valentine - Caro Emerald
http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/watchandlisten/play/c07e72337

Some say Black isn't a colour - but Emerald is

Aha!!! Er... Sorry, think I um instead of having goldfinger toast I swallowed a golf ball? I must have been half asleep when I wrote that! I know I needed coffee! Then I toddled off to do some work.

I hope everyone is having a lovely day. We were expecting rain but sunshine came instead.

Yay, you added your Blue Moon, thank you!

YES ... folks bring me more songs, please! I think we may go into bonus songs allowed if we stay this quiet! Do come and join us!

I have done all my listens, so here is my 3rd and final song for the 1-3-1 challenge
and just in case there are some of you that might not be familiar with this song,
the last few verses will include

" so excuse me forgetting, but these things I do, you see I've forgotten if they
are GREEN or they're BLUE , but anyway the thing is what I really mean, yours
are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen"

Good evening everyone! Tiptoeing in to pick up our two new songs added, thank you!

Art, I hope that all went well with the Physical Therapy for your wife. And Snagelpuss, good to see you again.

We've made a great start and we have a nice long leisurely week for plenty of people to join in.

If you have friends who you visit and you see they've just sung a colour song, why not ask them if they'd like to join? I know I sneaked in on greeneyes just when she had freshly recorded (hee hee). I've been so impressed by our new friends I've been adding a few more bookmarks

Hope you all have a lovely evening and a good night's sleep!

Thank you, everybody for all the lovely songs. I will update the playlist a little later or maybe on the turn of the page? Can't be long to go now? Can't remember how many... Heh... I wonder if there is a Flipper among us?

Keep them coming! Bonus songs will be added whilst we are small and especially Wednesday onwards each week. I will mark them (BONUS) so that those trying to keep up know.

Please, if you see this thread and you are unsure but tempted, join us. The more the merrier and we're open to blue and gold members.

I've just finished my coffee and running away to do some work. I'll be back later to check in on you! Have a lovely morning/afternoon/evening wherever you are! And sweet dreams to all who are sleeping.
