Since ebby started a wonderful SOTW thread (http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4090-Bj%C3%B6rk-Song-Of-The-Week) on the Björk forum, I thought it was time we had the same thing for KB. I would imagine that people will be rediscovering her music in anticipation of the upcoming concerts anyway. I've helpfully started this on a Monday, so the new SOTW will kick off at the start of each week. If you're interested in doing one, make yourself known. I'll start mine a bit later on today, and we'll go from there. So:


Week of Monday 14th July: spyk_ - Lake Tahoe (http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4128-SOTW-Lake-Tahoe)
Week of Monday 21st July: Domandapiano - The Song of Solomon (http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4149-Song-of-the-Week-The-Song-of-Solomon)
Week of Monday 28th July: soignee - Jig of Life (http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4159-Song-Of-The-Week-Jig-Of-Life)
Week of Monday 4th August: Stone - Joanni (http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4171-SOTW-Joanni)
Week of Monday 11th August: Puddles - Houdini (http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4187-Song-of-the-Week-Houdini)

Week of Monday 6th October: soignee - Top of the City (http://www.unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4236-SOTW-Top-Of-The-City)
Week of Monday 13th October: Yo Jupiter - Room For The Life (http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4238-SOTW-Room-for-the-Life)

Awesome. I've stickied this thread so it'll sit nicely on the top of the forum. If people could PM me when they post their threads I'll do the same to each individual thread each week if I don't spot them before the PM.

Domandapiano

I'd like to do The Song of Solomon! :)

I'll take Jig of Life, and try my very bestest to do it justice!

Puddles

This is probably a stupid question, but how does Song of the Week work exactly? Is it just that we discuss the song in question - posting videos, pictures, impressions, etc.? :)

This is probably a stupid question, but how does Song of the Week work exactly? Is it just that we discuss the song in question - posting videos, pictures, impressions, etc.? :)

Basically it's a thread that completely focuses on that song with a new one each week in the spotlight. The person who takes the song ideally should post indepth thoughts on the song, or analysis of the song, and/or something about why they chose to focus on that song. It's just not just a hit-and-run "omg I luv this song. u?" kind of deal.

Stone
07-14-2014, 02:31 PM
Ooh. I'd like to have Joanni, please.

Puddles
07-14-2014, 02:33 PM
Sounds like fun. I'd like to do Houdini.

spyk_
07-14-2014, 02:45 PM
I've updated the OP with everyone's requests. I put the date each week starts on, but it doesn't necessarily have be on that specific Monday, it's just to help keep track of which week we're currently in.

Yo Jupiter
07-14-2014, 03:06 PM
Oh noes, I wanna nominate, but the dates just after this one are no good. Well, all up until September 8th, which is far away. :(

Anyway, I'd like to have In the Warm Room, put me up in advance for Sept 8th (or if anyone before Aug 18th wants to switch, I'd be happy with that too)

dAmION
07-15-2014, 09:12 PM
I'll do The Sensual World.

soignee
07-22-2014, 02:41 PM
does anyone know if there's a way of saving posts and they be posted at a later date? I will be travelling to the UK on saturday, and while I'll be taking the laptop I'm not sure if there's time to post it on monday.

You can PM your post to a mod, and they can post it for you at a later time.

dAmION
07-23-2014, 02:01 AM
Just saw it above but i'll post it again: i'd love to do The Sensual World.

ebby
07-26-2014, 04:39 PM
I'll add you to the list.


Domandapiano's "Song Of Solomon" SOTW has been up and going a few days, in case anyone missed it: http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4149-Song-of-the-Week-The-Song-of-Solomon

Yo Jupiter
07-26-2014, 04:48 PM
There's room for a couple of songs before my SOTW, you can fill those gaps (18/25/1), no need that I put a hold on the whole thing because of my trip! So feel free to put The Sensual World on the 17th if it's ok with y'all

ebby
07-26-2014, 05:10 PM
Oh, I totally didn't even read it properly. Half asleep in job #2.

Sorry for lateness, on holiday. SOTW for Jig of life is up! (http://www.unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4159-Song-Of-The-Week-Jig-Of-Life)

Stone
08-04-2014, 12:25 AM
Should I do mine until next Thursday to allow soingee's SOTW to stay there for a whole week?

ebby
08-04-2014, 12:53 PM
^ I think it's ok to go ahead with it, and I'll just leave both stickied to the top of the forum for a while.

Stone
08-04-2014, 03:55 PM
Will be posting later today!

soignee
08-11-2014, 08:25 AM
I'll do another one, this time Under The Ivy!

spyk_
08-11-2014, 10:51 AM
That's updated. I may put down for another one soon too.

Puddles
08-11-2014, 07:04 PM
Please put me down for Watching You Without Me the week after September 8th. I'll try to post my current one tonight. Thanks!

I'm tempted to do one but worry it would be crap compared to other people's!

It'll be fine! It's all about starting off the discussion, then other people can chime in and talk about it too. Never worry about how much you can say about something.

Puddles

I think that's actually completely normal - at least I felt the same way before writing mine.

I may need one more day to complete my write-up but i'll try to get it up tomorrow.

come into the garden with me, SOTW for Under The Ivy (http://www.unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4205-SOTW-Under-The-Ivy&p=438060#post438060) is up!

Yeay! One of my very favourite Kate Bush songs.

Ah! This is gap week! Would anyone mind if I tackled King of the Mountain?

soignee
09-01-2014, 11:20 PM
Do it! I'll go dance with this diamante one piece in the mean time.

Can I do The Empty Bullring?

spyk_
09-01-2014, 11:49 PM
Of course! Do you want to do it this week since you haven't done one yet or shall I put you at the end?

Lágnætti
09-01-2014, 11:55 PM
Whenever suits, don't mind. I'm in the mood to spaz about Kate so I can quickly knock something out for this week if need be.

Love this track.

Go for it then. I'm seeing Kate tonight so I probably wouldn't get it done until tomorrow evening earliest anyway. I'll edit the OP :).

spyk_
09-07-2014, 01:44 AM
Would anyone mind if I added myself onto the end of the list to do Get Out of My House? (I've changed my mind from doing KoTM). We're running out of contributors now so if anyone wants to do one let me know!

Lágnætti
09-07-2014, 02:11 AM
I'll do My Lagan Love if that's OK.

Stone
09-07-2014, 02:52 AM
Would love to read your impression of both songs!

soignee
09-07-2014, 12:39 PM
If I do Moments of Pleasure and This Woman's Work I will be incoherent on feels, and anything from Sky Of Honey is hard to single out, so I'll be a pigeon and pick Top Of The City as my next SOTW.

spyk_
09-07-2014, 05:12 PM
I've edited the OP with the new songs. Let me know if there are any issues.

Yo Jupiter
09-08-2014, 08:11 AM
The new SOTW is waiting for you in the waaaarm roooooooom (http://unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4219-SOTW-In-the-Warm-Room)!

spyk_
09-24-2014, 01:21 PM
Sorry I'm all behind. I'll aim to get mine posted tonight.

spyk_
09-28-2014, 08:35 PM
So the first chance I get to sit behind my laptop all week and it's half 9 on a Sunday night. Great. Is there any point in me posting now, with only a few hours left of this week, or shall we skip straight to the next one? (Or, we could do two at once?) I'm so sorry, everyone.

Lágnætti
09-28-2014, 08:48 PM
I'll do mine next week if you want,

spyk_
09-28-2014, 10:29 PM
No it's fine Helen, go for it as scheduled, I don't want to delay everything. I'll just switch mine to the end of the list. It turned out this week was really good a good one for me.

Puddles
09-28-2014, 11:14 PM
I know which one I'd like to do next: Kashka From Baghdad. But if it's okay I'd rather not do it so soon after my last one, so can I sign up for the week of October 20th instead? I might even prefer the 27th, but I thought maybe somebody would like to do something for Halloween that week (though I already hogged Houdini, which would have been perfect for that week).

SOTW for Top Of The City is up, (http://www.unforumzed.com/showthread.php?4236-SOTW-Top-Of-The-City&p=443131#post443131)come coo with the pigeons in Soho Square with me.

Any only a day late hahahhhh sorryyyyy

Which brings us to the end of the SOTW list so far. Anyone else looking to sign up?

soignee
10-07-2014, 11:36 AM
Maybe an album discussion too/instead? I'd love to have a listen-along with you all.

Yo Jupiter
10-07-2014, 03:54 PM
I'd like to do Room for the Life!

spyk_
10-07-2014, 07:00 PM
Sorry, I need to update the list. I know Puddles requested Kashka and I was going to do Get Out of My House. I'm very much up for a few album listening parties too.

I'll have Suspended In Gaffa, as I can't have them all.

10-26-2014, 12:34 PM
I've added you on soignee. Puddles, did you miss Kashka? I'm sorry, I should have just started a thread for general discussion if your absence. Shall I move your slot until after soignee's?

Puddles
10-27-2014, 10:50 PM
Yes, I'm very sorry - I'll try not to let it happen again!

Get Out of My House.

Being English and all, I wonder why she never named this Get Out of My Flat. I guess she was trying to reach a wider audience.

Nancy
10-28-2014, 08:57 PM
Get Out of my Bed-sitter just doesn't have the same ring to it, Dame.

Lágnætti
10-28-2014, 09:46 PM
Because we actually call houses 'houses' in Britain. Flats are apartments.

spyk_
10-28-2014, 10:17 PM
Yes, houses and flats are different things. Plus, it's a metaphorical house. 'Get Out of My Flat' doesn't evoke quite the same images of invasion, but rather sounds like the last line of an episode of Eastenders.

But that does remind me that it's my turn to do this song this week. I'll try to post tomorrow.

Do it whenever you like my dear. You're last on the list so there's no rush. Once you're done I may take some new requests for 2015.
