    Who else was left out of the R&R H.O.F.?

    Dove-tailing off the KISS tread... Everybody knows that the R&R HOF is a bit of a joke...both, because of those who are in and because of those who were left out. Partly based on the standards already demonstrated by the HOF, here are just a few notables (and this just scratches the surface)...

    Song ID Help Please

    I have a Father/Daughter looking for a song that begins with the spoken phrase "What's Up Daddy" or something like that. I have reason to believe that that phrase is NOT part of the title. It is not Landslide. We have no idea what era song it might be but I'm trying to find out. The Bride...

    Ricky Martin Anyone?

    I was thinking about him today (God only knows why)...haven't played anything by him for years now. Does anybody still play him? Do you foresee his hit songs making any sort of comeback as his core audience of (then) teeny-boppers are approaching marrying age? I bring this up because last...

    Silhouette Grand Entrance

    4 or 5 Years ago on Mark Ferrell's old forum, I saw a video of a Grand Entrance where the B&G emerged from a silhouette projected (from behind) onto a screen. THEY WERE the silhouette that magically came to life. A great illusion. If you know what I'm talking about, and if you know how it...

    German Grand March?

    Is there a particular song that Germans use for the Grand March? I've got lots of Polkas, and a few that will do nicely, but is there is a specific song I should know about?

    Did Ray Charles record You Are So Beautiful?

    This is an extension of a thread from 2006, where DunlopJ asked if Ray ever recorded "You Are So Beautiful". As most already know, it is the hit by Joe Cocker that is often mistaken for "The Genius", and that mistaken identity is propagated by misidentification through LimeWire & the like...

    Pro Teams "Signature" songs?

    This was born of the Non-Top 200 thread... At Colorado Rockies home games, you will always hear Bruce Channel - Hey Baby in the 8th inning. When the Avalanche starting line-up is announced, they play Scalped - Dick Dale. Fenway - Sweet Caroline, and if Paplebon comes in (as long as he is not...

    Recent Country Dance Hits??

    I've been ignoring Country Music for the past couple of years (Big & Rich left a bad taste). Since Country hits have a tendency to come and go so quickly, it doesn't take long to get behind. Last I knew Honkytonkbedonketc was the big thing. I've looked around, but I haven't found a 'list' of...

    R.I.P. Jim Carroll

    Somehow, this one slipped through my radar, but Jim Carroll died of an apparent heart attack on the 11th. He lived an amazing/tragic life. Jim was considered a literary genius by the time he was 13. He also had a promising career as a basketball player, but he chose the drug fueled...

    Aspen Cancels NYE! Bomb Threat!

    Police had to evacuate a 16 block area of downtown Aspen until 4am on New Years Eve! Can you imagine? 16 blocks covers pretty much all of Aspen...all of the major hotels would have been affected. NYE is HUGE in Aspen as it is peak season. I'm sure there were many high dollar, celebrity...
