An annual interlinked musical blogging challenge! Runs September 1st through 7th(ish).
Thank-you in advance for the badge. I wanted that badge!
That said, what a pain-in-the ass! And I mean that fondly. It pushed me out of my comfort zone.
I had to check the internet. Most songs of the 40s, 50s and 60s had various artists and various release dates. The writer/singer wasn't that common (or maybe it was in certain genres?). Then I had to find the lyrics (not necessairly in the same place and sometimes had to choose between versions) and then... be careful personally because I don't do nostalgia (too many traumas that can be triggered). Somehow I avoided that trap with "Secret Love".
I focused on 1946-1955 because it was music that was chosen by my parents and not by me. Of course, their choices affected me and it was good for me to revisit that. "Green Eyes" (a song few know or remember) was the culprit that got me going and spurred me on. I can't get that tune out of my head! Switch channels?
