Thread Name: Songs from the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround
Subject: RE: Songs from the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround
Oh, no doubt that will happen in time, Felipa. In fact, it's happening now to a great extent. But it takes time.
I'm trying to keep the main announcement thread clear for announcing coming singarounds. It's fine to post other things there, but eventually they will be moved to more permanent homes.
It's a very easy thing for me to move a message to another thread.
For the most part, I have been starting or refreshing threads during the Singaround for songs that aren't common or that we don't have full information for, and then researching and discussing the songs over the coming week.
Gerry Myerson and others started building lists of songs sung at the singarounds, so we started this thread for those lists and as a temporary resting place for lyrics. Monique is managing a thread for songs from the Singaround that are not in English.
We've been trying our best to document sources for lyrics and to ensure we have correct and proofread lyrics in the "origins" and "DTStudy" threads. But until lyrics have been checked, it's nice to keep them elsewhere until they're ready for "origins" threads.
