This forum will be for the fairly obscure SingSnap songs. I plan to host different challenges within this thread,along the way. I have an initial list of songs for you to choose from, that will always be an active option. I plan to present banners periodically, for a recording that really gets my attention. The banners will be sporadic, therefore a surprise, awarded when a song "moves me". I have co-hosts joining me and helping to judge in the rated challenges that will be coming up. This is new for me,so we're ad libbing, lol, but I think this will be a fun place to hang out, meet new SS friends, but mostly a place where you can sing and listen to some of the more obscure songs and artists that aren't usually highlighted in contests.

Ok, for the contest part of this site, as mentioned with the FEATURED ARTISTS list, Limited to 25 contestants, we give you the judging guidelines,as follows:

Vocals, Not going flat or sharp unless its deliberate

Emotion but not over emotion
(Instant disqualification if a sad song is sung and a smile is detected.

Harmonies allowed, but original recording needs to be open and recorded in same contest time frame as the 2nd track recording

Timing and Balance

The odd crackle of a slightly poorer system, mic is acceptable as its not a who's got plenty of money contest. MMSB is the only mixer accepted for the competitive events.

Video is encouraged but will NOT affect scoring...

and last but not least ..... please the judges..... make us smile or bring a tear to our eyes...make us want to get up and dance.... just make us FEEL it...

Cohen, Nazzo and I will be judging this week's contest..... DEADLINE is Mon., Feb. 28th, 8:00pm,SS time

It's an ON-GOING One-his Wonders from from the first song list, this one is for FUN....you can triple track, join anyone already posted...or do any wacky silly recording style you want.... just for fun and an occasional SURPRISE banner when one of we judges is really impressed......

Then there's the FEATURED ARTIST list that is for a ONE-SONG,one WEEK contest....

Hopefully it will be something for most anyone... there will be other themes along the way... after this week's contest section is completed...

Good to see ya on here.... yeah, the poli-boards can onlt entertain for so long without stressin' ya out......

Thanks for joining us! Feel free to sing any of the one-hit wonders for the heck of it also, there's a secret song on that list that will garner a banner to the one who first sings it.

Saw Gary Puckett just a few years ago....he sounded as good as he ever did, and was way better looking.... He, Gene Pitney, Burton Cummings and Jay Black had such gorgeous and distinctive vocals.
