Coming Soon – Song Draft

One of the blogs I follow – Slice The Life (See his site here: is hosting a Song Draft next month. Over 12 weeks, I’ll be choosing my picks (songs) much like one would draft a player in a Fantasy Football draft.

A few of my blogger friends took part in his last “draft” which was all movies. They had genres to draft (Sci-Fi, Western, Comedy, etc…) and I wish I had been able to take part in that. It was fun to read the various reviews and thoughts on the movies and why they picked them.

For the song draft, there is no specific genre required. If I want, I can pick all Dean Martin songs, all instrumentals, or all songs with numbers in the title. This is my first time participating in this sort of draft, so I think having genres may actually have helped me pick the songs a bit more, but having the freedom to pick from whatever songs I want is kind of cool, too.

I plan to do this much like I did Tune Tuesday, where I focused on one particular song. I actually went back through and looked at all the songs I wrote about (I think I got them all), so I wouldn’t repeat any. I have already listened to all the songs on my iPod in hopes that some would really stick out. There are a few. I’m not really sure how I plan on picking my songs, but I’m excited to be a part of it. Look for it to begin sometime in July!

Thanks to my pal, Max of the Power Pop Blog (See his site here: for inviting me to be a part of it and to Hans at Slice the Life for allowing me to be a part of it.

      1. I was the opposite on this one…I’m glad we didn’t… with movies it got kinda hard…but you can make some for yourself and go by them.

      2. That is a good idea…you could even divide up the decades. Early seventies-sixties is NOT like the later seventies-sixties.

      3. Right!

        I have no problem with some great R&B and soul songs, I have about 3 or 4 blues songs, some rock, some oldies, and even a couple that are from within the last 5-7 years. I just need to figure out how I want to do it AND whittle it down to 12 songs….
