Circle of Titles / Gift of Music ?

Post by Mike Lamb » Sun Mar 15, 2020 7:55 pm

With things all fucky right now, people might have some extra time on their hands. Anyone interested in resurrecting Circle of Titles, or a new Gift of Music?

Circle of Titles: Every participant submits a title, they get shuffled around to other partipants so that you end up with a song for each title (actually I think people generally submit two so that their random partner gets a choice?)

Gift of Music: Every participant picks a few (four?) songs that they love, then people get shuffled around and have to record a cover of one of their random partner's chosen songs as a gift to them.

I've done one of each and they were fun, so I'd be up for another round!

Gift of music certainly has fun! Sometimes it's nice to just jam on something you didn't write...

Yes. I am getting a bit bogged down in recording my own songs. A Gift of Music might be fun

How's it arranged? Are we in groups, or is it one big shuffle?

Niveous used to do it as a Xmas gift thing.

Basically - we all send a list of 4 songs to one person. That person shuffles the names and assigns a list to whoever is playing

I'll confirm, but I think BYD would be in for either. Sounds like some fun while I'm stuck inside.

I’d be interested, and I can see if the rest of Mandibles are on board!

Is gift of music exclusively songs of your own, or just any 4 songs you like?

Any four songs! I did a Regina Spektor one from Micah's selections last time and it was great fun.

I'm also into Gift of Music and not interested in Circle of Titles. There is also Original Flava, which is SongFighters covering SongFighters, which I think is even more fun than GoM.

I'd probably be in for Original Flava but I'm also very short on spoons/energy right now. GoM could be fun but I'm already, like, two short on having stiffed folks in the past. Oops. Maybe I should finally fix that.
