My first comment is to ask very politely not to post any song links on this thread unless you are a club member and fully understand what this club is all about.

The ‘We Listen To It All’ club is attracting new members on a daily basis. These are members who wish to acknowledge the efforts of other singers on the site and it is not for self-promotion.

For a variety of reasons it is not always possible to listen to a song from start to finish. It could be because you have to answer the phone, or hang the washing out, or just don’t like the rendition and can’t bear it a moment longer! However, the singer doesn’t really know whether they have received a full listen even when you leave a comment. Up to now, that is, because we have a small graphic available to every member of this club that indicates a thorough listen.

You don’t have to use the graphic at all and you are not committed to listen to every song you stumble across on Singsnap from start to finish but if you do use it you are honour bound to have used it properly!

The graphic doesn’t show properly on the message board here because different coding is used for the song comment section. However, if you copy the section below and paste it into the comment section of the song you are listening to it will display properly:


Click the happy face to learn more about the 'We Listen To It All Club'. We are committed to listening to an entire song and no return listen required!

(Shanda is always on hand to answer technical stuff if you get confused).

To become a member, simply announce your intention to join on this thread. In so doing you are agreeing to follow the rule that if you use the graphic…you have listened to a song in its entirety.

At the time of writing we have grown to over 80 members and I felt that it was time to create some added interest rather than simply listing the members names, (although this list will be updated regularly and new members are always welcome).

Every week, beginning Sunday at 9am, Singsnap time, each member can nominate ONE song from any rendition on Singsnap, posted by another Singsnap member DURING THE PREVIOUS WEEK ONLY.

This is to showcase anyone, not just other club members and you must not use it to self-promote. The nomination will be for our ‘Notable Performance’ showcase.

You should supply the Singsnap member’s name, the song, the genre, the link and the reasons why you have chosen it as per the following example:

Notable Performance Nomination
Singsnap Member: Joebloggs
Song: Over the Rainbow
Genre: Rock
Link: www.1234xyxsingsnap.watchnlisten.com
Reason for nomination: I felt that this was a fine example of blah blah etc great stuff blah excellent etc etc (write as much as you want here)

There is no commitment to do this as a club member and neither is there a commitment to listen to any of the songs posted. However, I think it is only fair that if you do post up a nomination you listen to at least three others posted up during the week. Remember it is ONE song only for the nomination, so you may have to do some soul searching to pick just the one!

If you wish to pass comment on another member’s ‘notable performance’ choice on here, please bear in mind that the Singsnap member being showcased may not know about the club and may take exception to undue criticism. Having said that, empty ‘awesomes’ also add nothing to the content of the thread! Speak your mind if you wish but keep it positive. After all, someone will have chosen that rendition as their favourite of the week so it is likely to have something special about it.

Each member will have their own measurement for their chosen song, so the nomination will encompass all kinds of renditions and genres. We undoubtedly frequent different parts of the site and have different musical tastes.

I have no idea at this stage whether there will be just a handful of nominations per week or dozens. Lets see how it pans out!

Finally can I ask people to avoid glittery graphics on the thread. It’s a pet hate of mine!

Happy listening!

I'm sharing the notification messages with Tas so apologies if there is any overlap. One thing I have noticed as I travelled about through the home pages was how many people have added the graphic to their page! Wonderful to see!

Remember that the graphic should be replaced with the new one so anyone clicking on it gets sent to this new home rather than the old one. Sorry to give you this extra work but I think it was necessary to clearly show on the first post that we are a distinct group from one with a similar sounding name on the board. Not only that but the new nomination idea needed a good airing.

If anyone wants to start the ball rolling for the 'Notable Performance', you would be posting a song recorded between 9am Sunday 16th August (SS time) and 8.59am Sunday 23rd August.

singsnap member: Jessi
song: Not Pretty Enough
Genre: Country I think
Link: http://www.singsnap.com/snap/r/bda2ba24
I posted this one here because Jessi has one of the best voices I have ever heard. She's one of those performers where you would feel like posting every single song she does here as most noteable...If you ever get the chance listen to the song she has done with the title God's Will.

I'd like to nominate a new member I found on"welcome the new kids on the block" This guy does an impression of Regis Philburn ...funny stuff.

Recording Date: Aug 22, 2009 at 4:54 PM

Member: RegisPhilbin

Song: Can You Feel The Love Tonight

Artist: Elton John

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/r/baa5a1e2

I chose him because he is funny, does a good impression and is attracting a lot of attention this song alone has more than 70 views.
