Thread Name: Idea for bringing songs out of threads
Subject: RE: Idea for bringing songs out of threads.....
I think we need to be careful to balance things out so that new lyrics are easy to find, but so that they're in a place where they serve to contribute to the discussion. We've tried starting new "add lyrics" and "add tune" threads, and I'm not sure I like that idea myself. Oftentimes, the song stands alone in its own little thread, separate from the related discussion, and I think that tends to impede the discussion. A song is only half a song if you don't know the story behind it. I wonder if putting ADD LYRICS in the "subject" title would be enough to alert Susan and Dick, instead of starting a whole new thread when the song being posted is related to the discussion at hand. Susan, what do you think?
I was at the University of Colorado library the other night. They had great computers, but it cost me $17 for the parking ticket that I got at 10:22 on a Fridaya night. Now I'm back at a crummy computer in a neighborhool library. Darn.
Denver is an architectural paradise, by the way. I really like this town.
