  1. Here's the place to give us your suggestions for topics and themes, as well as other suggestions, so they don't get lost in the shuffle. With our last two lists, Songfactors' Choice has really gained popularity. So far we've done: Best Soundtracks Christmas Wish List Holiday Special The Very Best of 2007 Women Gone Wild! Distinctive Debuts We need ideas for universal themes, to encourage the great participation we've been getting. Obviously, the more popular the topic, the more nominations (such as the last two lists) we get, which is the whole point. Which leads to the suggestion of lists of 10, rather than 5. It's great idea... as long as we have the participation to support it. So we have suggestion #1, which is under serious advisement. Give us whatcha got!
  2. WELCOME TO THE SONGFACTOR'S MUSIC OF CHOICE: Volume 1 * ALL MEMBERS OF SONGFACTS ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO PARTICIPATE * Please join us, and share your knowledge and your love of the thing that keeps SONGFACTS the community we all know and love. MUSIC ! The basic guidelines are simple.... *The Songfactor's Music of Choice will be decided by your nominations and votes. For each edition we'll ask that you nominate 1 OR 2 selections that meet the guidelines for that edition. *With each nomination, we'll ask that you give us a review, a few thoughts or just a description of how your selection makes you feel. No one is being graded on their writing here. What we want is for you to share your knowledge and feelings about the music you love. *Each edition will run 3 to 4 weeks. At the end of that time, we'll ask you to vote. You know how that works! These lists will number 5, so we'll ask that you compile your list of 5 choices for the final Songfactor's Music of Choice. We will tally them, just like The Songfactor's Choice Top Ten, 1 through 5. At the close of voting, we will have our Songfactor's Music of Choice. *We're going to try to be creative with this. We want to encourage an exchange of thoughts, so this will be a place to learn about and enjoy the nominations, as well as the final choices. The guidelines will change with each edition. So Welcome To..... THE SONGFACTOR'S MUSIC of CHOICE: Volume 1: SOUNDTRACKS *What we'd like is for you to nominate a great Soundtrack. To change it up a bit, instead of reviewing the album, we'd like for you to choose one song from that Soundtrack to highlight. Tell us how that song makes the scene it corresponds to work. Why is it memorable? How does it make you feel? Why do you think of the film everytime you hear the song? Get it? Got It? Good!

Welcome To ..... THE SONGFACTORS' CHOICE: Top Live Albums of All Time! **SPECIAL NOTE: It's agreed most of us like the idea of doing a list of 10, so we're going to give it a shot, as long as the number of nominations support a list that size. It isn't much fun doing a list of ten, from 20 or less nominations. We've decided that a list of 30 however, is very do-able. For that, we need 15 participants. We're going on the assumption that this will be a list of 10, because the participation has been growing the past few months. If for some reason, we don't get the numbers needed for a Top Ten, we'll just automatically revert to the "default" of 5. Sound ok ?? So, lets go.... GIVE US YOUR NOMINATIONS NOW!

  6. A thread inspired by our Top Ten of the same name. Youtube makes this one easy, but feel free to post or discuss in whatever way you wish! I'll start with a three-fer: Love Hurts ~ The Everly Brothers (the 1950's original) Love Hurts ~ Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris ('60's) Love Hurts ~ Nazareth ('70's) Three totally different takes on the same song. The Parsons/Harris version is my favorite, but I love Nazareth's too!

    Songfactors Football 2015

    I like having defensive players in Kevin, for exactly the reason you mentioned, it's just kind of fun to move them around and see how many extra points you can garnish.. I'd missed that. I'm ready to go, hopefully my football team is slightly better than my baseball team this year. Good luck everybody!!

    I asked "yahoo answers" and found a question/answer from last year - it said that you must join via email or url. When I click the link above I get the option of sending a reminder to the commish of last years team, creating a new league, or joining an existing one (this is where I would need the url, there are thousands to search through), or to join an exsisting on demand league (not what we want to do). Kevin, on the join an existing option .... if you first click on "get another team" you are searching through thousands of custom leagues - you can narrow these down by various search criteria however, like league type (private) draft type (auto) and draft date - if we knew the draft date, we could narrow it down further, and possibly find Songfacts Football I'm going to send my yahoo email to you - but I think maybe we can still do the link thing - we just need a different one ..... can you post the url of the league page itself, rather than the general yahoo join url? Good grief! grrrrr - I don't know how to work this new format either - my inbox is full, I can't send a message until I delete some, and can't figure out how. I'll post the email here, and just come back later and delete it. See if you can invite me that way Kevy .... ca_hahn@yahoo.com

    Hi guys, how is everybody? I am in...... woops, except I'm not. I can't figure out where to join either, even going through the link. I'm in another Yahoo league and we joined via email invite. Maybe there is another link?

    Great! If not, we'll have to figure it out, it is what it is. There must be something beneficial about it or it wouldn't be a default setting. Danged if I can see it though!

    CanAm - I found this ..... From "Help". Are we a Weekly league? It appears all weekly leagues may be set up this way. Under "scoring and settings" on our league page it says: Weekly Deadline: Weekly on Monday - maybe you can change it from there? Find out which settings your league uses -- click Scoring & Settings from your league's homepage. Lineup changes (active and bench) In all public leagues and custom leagues with default settings, you can move any player between bench and active positions until the scheduled start time of their game. Once their game is scheduled to begin, their position will be locked and you won't be able to swap them with another player. Keep in mind, scheduled start times can vary from the actual start time, so always try to have your lineup set as far in advance as possible. Weekly leagues If your custom league uses weekly roster changes (like "Weekly on Monday"), all lineup changes have to be made by the start of the first game of the designated day of the week for your league. If there aren't any games scheduled on the designated day of the week for your league, the deadline is 11:59 PM PT on your deadline day to make lineup changes. All lineup changes made after the deadline will take effect the following week.

    Ok may I just say ..... "Desdemona" Great to see all you guys - Bluesy and I are doing great, and after a year and a half living with my dad and getting him well, we've just moved back into our own home. Still in Bakersfield but our own home!

    Hey hey hey! Something new this year - or am I crazy? We have to set a weekly lineup? We are unable to edit our lineup on a daily basis? Eek!

    Yes Ray, he's right ..... both your pitchers are better, which is why I didn't send you a trade offer, lol - we have to do a 1 for 1 trade, and I'd have to throw in a sweetener for that deal. I'm fairly weak in the relief spot as well, but otherwise I'm please with my team.

    Aw man, you guys are doing PTT's! And chutz has a good one too. I can't get involved, I know I won't have time to keep it up, but I'm gonna listen to a few playlists, if y'all don't mind. Starting with this one! So how's everybody doing?

    Ok, Carole's Choice Team is in(I've got to do something about that name though). Thank you for making room for me! I'll try to be online for the draft - I'm PST also, so it shouldn't be a problem. I've never done a live draft for baseball, this should be interesting.

    Fantasy Baseball 2015

    Hey guys and gals! Do y'all still need another player? My PT thingy didn't flash, nor is my email notification working (humpf!)or I'd have been here sooner! I know it's last minute and all, but if you need 1 more, I'm your girl! If not, it's ok - I should have checked sooner ... my own fault.

    Have you ever met a music icon.?

    I've met Steve Winwood, and John Mellencamp, both at a meet & greet. Mellencamp and I actually had a conversation about the area of southern Indiana we're both from - a huge tornado had gone through and tore the place up pretty bad. Big time stuff, huh?
