    Ooh thank you Kari! I think this could be good and I am excited to read people's interpretations of some of the songs as well, if people are interested.

    If we're going to be picking songs, I'd choose "'81" as mine to start if that's ok

    (stuck the thread for you. just poke at me when a SOTW goes up and I'll stick it for you too.)

    I totally want to do one, but my two instant choices are gone, so I'm gonna have a think.
