Another great episode of Friday Nite Music gets underway this evening. This weekend, we revisit the 1980's.

There may, or may not be rules tonight. Someone else's bailiwick. We get under way at the usual time, 7-ish pm, Eastern.

Good places to find music:

Be there, or be square!

About the only thing I can think of for rules

by jdclyde In reply to Heads Up - Friday Nite Mu ...

Has to be from the 80's.

Recommendation to keep it readable and interesting, if from same group, reply to yourself until you hit max depth. It is easier to see where the breaks are. Important for how long this one is likely to get.

Another thing, I personally like to post several songs under the same posting, if I already know what they are. Saves the readers from having to jump around as much.

Also, songs that really do it for you, are best. Don't post just for the sake of posting. If you wouldn't turn it on and listen to it, don't post it.

If a song has an interesting story, share it. If it means something special, share it.

I prefer these to be more of a sharing of ideas/music than just a long list of every song ever performed in the set category, but I get silly like that.

I will be late to the party, but will catch up around midnight (EST).

Oh, last thought, if it is something obscure, talk about it and give people an idea what it is like. A lot of people are not always open to something new, and need to be led to it.

I LOVE the non-pop songs. going to the used cd shop and going through the bargain bin was always a great way to find something off the beaten path.

will copy and paste the above to send to CG IT. He's getting it started tonight.

I just can't imagine that anyone will be around by midnight. B-)

Great rules.

I only post schitt that means something to me and don't ever post just to post. I haven't yet anyway.<br><br>
Now watch me not post anything. That'd be about right.

Best rule (and I screwed it up with the 70s)

Released OR charted. Since some of my favorite 70s songs were actually release in late '69 and I couldn't post them, ya know.

Glad you actually check the release date.

Being the FNM police is a rough job. Don't think I'm cut out for it today.
