A Style A Day

Recommended Posts

Inspired by the various 'themed' sounds threads that have been popping up, we've decided to devote each day of the week to a particular style, the idea being that one of the mods will kick a new thread off each day (though anyone can feel free to start it off if you're up before any of us lot!). Then everyone can post up tunes, using the 'new clip' button, please - anyone attaching mp3s will be made to stay after school and write 500 lines. :thumbsup: Seriously, though, if you have any problems with uploading do let us know :)

So this week will be….

Monday - Midtempo

Tuesday - Beat ballads

Wednesday - R&B

Thursday - Crossover

Friday - Anything goes

Saturday - Stompers

Sunday - Modern

Any suggestions for coming weeks are very welcome!

Rach,

Couple of ideas to mix it up a bit, how about :

'Motown Cover Monday', been some great covers of Motown records on the scene over the years.

'White Artist Wednesday' Loads of great blue eyed soul

'Male Solo Monday' could alternate with 60s girls on a Monday

'The Girl's Got It Thursday' solo girls

:D Some good ones there. At the moment the plan is to keep some days the same (R&B Wednesday, Crossover Thursday, Joan's Friday and Modern Sunday) and vary the others every week... see how it goes :D
