Ok, what I've tried to do on this forum, is offer a place for people to sing and share some of the songs that are not usually featured in SS contests. Hence, the ONE-HIT WONDERS title,and list of a few of those songs that I suggested. Those songs will always be a part of this challenge forum. Have fun with those songs. If you don't know the songs, most are worth getting to know, imo.
This is the list:
GET TOGETHER- THE YOUNGBLOODS
VEHICLE- IDES OF MARCH
GIVE ME JUST A LITTLE MORE TIME- CHAIRMEN OF THE BOARD
REFLECTIONS OF MY LIFE-THE MARMALADE
GLORIA- SHADOWS OF THE KNIGHT
SWEET CITY WOMAN- THE STAMPEDERS
MORE TODAY THAN YEATERDAY- SPIRAL STARECASE
SMOKE FROM A DISTANT FIRE- SANFORD TOWNSEND BAND
VENUS- SHOCKING BLUE
THE NIGHT CHICAGO DIED-PAPER LACE
PICTURES OF MATCHSTICK MEN- STATUS QUO
GREEN-EYED LADY- SUGARLOAF
BROTHER LOUIE- STORIES
MR. BIG STUFF- JEAN KNIGHT
SMILING FACES- THE UNDISPUTED TRUTH
CLEAN UP WOMAN- BETTY WRIGHT
DON'T SAY YOU DON'T REMEMBER- BEVERLY BREMERS
GOOD TIME CHARLIE'S GOT THE BLUES- DANNY O'KEEFE

One song is a secret song,if you sing it,there's a banner for you,if you are the first to sing it.

This challenge will be a contest. Cohen,Nazzo and I will judge any song entered by one of the artists on THIS list. Deadline will be Feb. 28, 8:00PM. Banners will be awarded.

In other words, you may choose a song from the RED list, for fun....no pressure,no ratings....OR you can join the competitive area of the forum...one-song/one-week, choose a song from the purple list of featured artists....above

Something for everyone, is my goal,without it being the same songs we've heard and sang over and over on SS.

The secret song pick of mine is still available. A banner goes to the first person to record and post it on here. I'll check with Chris and see if he would like to have a secret song choice also, for another chance for you to receive a banner. The secret song is from the One-Hit Wonders list.

Lol...it's often better to sing it out than beat your head against brick walls on the poli-threads....

Reply by walkingstickGOLD

It's a challenge!
It's a contest!
It's confusing......

My back is out so I won't be singing
but it is rather confusing having a challenge for one-hit wonders and
a contest for selected artists
all in one thread.

I don't enter contests and before my back went out
I was considering doing something for the selected artists
and then I would have been in a contest I didn't want to be in (I don't like to have my singing judged).

Reply by -Tas-

Well if you think about it everyone's song once it is made 'public' is judged..the only difference here is that as a result of the judging funny little banners are given

Hi Kathy and all,

My first look at your thread, and I LOVE the concept of the one hit wonders and obscure songs....can I play, too?? 8^)

I have a couple recordings I have already done that are on the list - do you use pre records, or does it have to be fresh?

thanks!
Mark

Reply by qtkat_2000

I prefer fresh recordings....but one pre-record will be fine....

Hey Kathy!

http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/r/b06fc06f0

This was the first 45 rpm I ever owned.

It was not Paper Laces version, but Bo Donaldson and the Haywoods.

Either way ya look at it, I'm in.

I remember my first 45rpm, that I bought with my own money, HAVE YOU SEEN HER-THE CHI-LITES, still one of my favorites....and always will be...

I had access to my older brother and sister's records way before the one I bought for myself though

That's a good question to throw out there...what was your first 45 record? If it's on SS,feel free to sing it and post it... but make SURE you specify it's your first 45, so it doesn't get more confusing....lol

LOL and what we gonna do if folks were born after 45's were obsolete...not that I fit into that category
