  1. Yep, they're mixes that feature popular and not so-popular songs. Are you really serious when you say that posting something like this on the net, which I've made for my own (and anyone else's) enjoyment, and not for any financial gain whatsoever, would infringe some sort of copyright? That's like saying people driving in their cars playing a mix CD are infringing copyright, isn't it?
  2. Are you sure about that? Isn't that forum for people to expose music that most might not have heard of?
  3. 1. Blue In Green - Miles Davis (1959) 2. Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em - Eric B. & Rakim (1990) 3. Close To You - Maxi Priest (1990) 4. People Get Ready - The Impressions (1965) 5. Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker) - Parliament (1976) 6. Express Yourself - Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band (1970) 7. Celebration - Kool & The Gang (1980) 8. Another Sad Love Song - Toni Braxton (1993) 9. Rise - Herb Alpert (1979) 10. Wolf Like Me - TV on the Radio (2006)
  4. I've got a fantastic live version of it on a Curtis Mayfield 3 CD set I bought about five years ago.
  5. If anyone objects, I'll remove the link below but until then I'll get this thing rolling. The first mix I'm uploading is a conceptual mix called "The Apocalypse". The reasoning behind that title will be self-explanatory when you listen to it. Enjoy! http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QRAAQGZH
  6. I don't mind him, but if it had been my choice exclusively I would not have gone. In saying that, he did put on an entertaining show.
  7. Anmazing that these SFC threads have been going for over four years now.
  8. Thanks for the welcomes, everyone. It's funny, I used to always visit this site but would only look at the songfacts themselves and never thought to have a look at the message board. I'll be a regular visitor from now on.
  9. With making the CD case/sleeves you can just measure the normal size of the CD sleeve with a ruler and cut out a piece of paper to match the size. The front and back are different sizes, though.
  10. I've made many mix CDs (and, in earlier years, cassettes) for family and friends as gifts in the past. Sometimes I simply write out the song titles in a fancy free fashion but on other occasions I put some effort in where I'll write them up in excel or word with an attractive font and colours and also include photos of the artist, ie, actually making a CD cover and back. Once I made a Stevie Wonder CD for my wife where I had photos on the front, one in the middle under the clear plastic and one on the back as a watermark behind the song titles. It can be a lot of fun to do!
  11. I use WavePad to amplify the volume of songs.
  12. Hey, all. I love making continuous single file mixes using WavePad and was wondering if it would be okay to post megaupload links to some of them for anyone who is interested in having a listen. Would that be okay?
  13. Thanks for the welcome! I checked the Help section but I'm not sure how to link to the youtube files from this particular message board and make it so that just the song title and artist is displayed. Could someone please show me how? Thanks.
  14. Sorry about that ***embarrassed *** I had a look at one of the other lists and assumed the rules would be the same in this one. In that case I'll keep Mr Davis as one nominee and add: Eric B. & Rakim - Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29KvnMY413s
  15. So if the artist has already been in the competition before we can't vote for them? Wouldn't it make more sense to say that if a song has been in it before it can't be voted for? You are missing out on the opportunity of exposing people to a lot of songs thjey might not have heard.
  16. 1 blue in green - miles davis 2 billie jean - michael jackson 3 unfinished sympathy - massive attack 4 famous blue raincoat - leonard cohen 5 welcome to the terrordome - public enemy 6 in a sentimental mood - ellington & coltrane 7 lyrics of fury - eric b. & rakim 8 the beautiful ones - prince 9 with or without you - u2 10 maggotbrain - funkadelic Woops. Sorry, didn't read the instructions before posting.
  17. Don't know how these two haven't made the list before, but anyway... Miles Davis - Blue In Green Marvin Gaye - Just To Keep You Satisfied
  18. Haven't been to a bunch in my life, but here they are: When I was young and in high school (late '80s/early '90s) Bobby Brown MC Hammer When I was older and wiser Portishead Massive Attack K-Ci and JoJo + Boyz II Men I've also seen Bryan Adams twice with my wife.
