Tim Franklin | 8427 comments Opening this for Foe! OK, on to the theme suggested by Brass of 'Songs with long titles (entirely arbitrary minimum of 7 words; words in brackets are OK but not references to featured artists or mixes)'

Suggest the best of 'War-And-Peace-Alike-Ditties'. Nominations close 10pm on Thursday, I think it is.

message 3: by theDuke (new)

theDuke | 5605 comments An experimental instrumental post rock band, that appears to prefer to put the lyrics in their track titles! And there are longer titles than this one!

After Tech:

Absolutely Joan Crawford (With A Bit Of Tilda Swinton On The Side) - Jackie Leven
Mechanical Sounds Cascaded Through the City Walls and Everyone Reveled in Their Ignorance - Red Sparowes

Note to Lez: Yes, the word 'Reveled' is misspelt, but that's how it appears in the song title!

I went on the 'Post A New Discussion' bit, then had to click the 'I'm Not A Robot' box, (even though I am, in your face Goodreads!), and then clicked on some signs. After that, nothing, very strange.

1) I'm not a robot box
2) Topic
3) This is a discussion question
4) Comment

So I click the 'I'm not a robot' box, enter 'Songs With Long Titles' in the topic box, tick the box that says 'this is a discussion question' and enter my intro in the 'comment' box, and it comes up with a red box that says, '

You don't have to type anything in the 'about box', Foe. I left it blank when I opened the Album and Song Tag threads and it worked fine. You'll know for next time now. 🙂

theDuke | 5605 comments Yeah same here Nick..that discussion box thingy..i didn't touch it, it's not important....but that balddy robot thing..pain in the proverbial that is...that has to be done first, before you do the rest. You need to check that there is a tick, to say that you done it correctly...then do the other stuff afterwards.
