Thread Name: Lyr Add: Songs you sang at the Getaway
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Songs you sang at the Getaway
y'know - one of the "high" points for me was to have people join in on songs - because so much of my repetoire is *NOT* chorus songs, or well known. That's partly why I learn them in the first place (because I want to have something to sing that isn't done by "everybody" and - heck - as far as chorus songs go - there are tons of much better song leaders then I to lead them...)
I figure another couple of repetitions and I'll get people belting out the chorus of "Brian the King" with me - they are starting to sing it already; and standing at the "focus" in the TV room and hearing the "Pull Boys Pull" come back at me during 'Carteghena' was incredible!
[of course what I am really waiting for is the day I hear a song I wrote being done by someone else *grin*]
But the true joys of something like the Getaway or Old Songs is, for me, being able to listen to the incredible music - vocal and/or instrumental, to JOIN with others in the choruses and singing - to hear verses I've never heard before - or new songs -
hmmmmm - this probably should have gone in the other thread - but I'm too lazy to cut and paste it at this point.
