    Default Season 418: The Way We Were

    Welcome to Season 418!

    As some of you already guessed, this Season's theme is memories. Happy or sad, your own or somebody else's - lets hear them.

    Original songs, instrumentals and collaborations are all welcome. I would love to see current Seasonistas, the Seasonistas from the past and new Seasonistas joining in.

    Song limit: One song per day or 8 songs per Season.

    This is a recycled theme because in 2013, there was Season 79 about memories hosted by DougF - well worth remembering.

    - The Season 418 starts Sunday, February 16 at 00:00 Hawaii time and ends Sunday, February 23 at 12 PM Hawaii time.
    - Please mention in the video that it's for Season 418.
    - Multi tracking and other instruments are fine.
    - Prizes will be small items, made of Finnish plywood.

    I'll put my comments on YouTube and don't duplicate them here.

    Please note that the fine Original Favourite Country Shorts Season 417 is still ongoing.

    Happy strumming, singing and picking!

    Hello, Ylle! Great idea for the week, but can you just elaborate. Do you mean songs which evoke personal memories, whatever they might be about, or songs that have "memories/remembering etc." in the title or lyrics? (Sorry, I am probably being more than normally dense ... or pedantic!)

    Thanks Ylle. Lots of good songs. I've always liked this. Charles Aznavour. And many others.

    I wrote this when my eldest brother passed away several years ago at 47 years old. The picture in the movie are some of the paintings he made.
    This is called Memory of my Brother.

    Hello, Ylle! I think I have covered all bases with this song ... it's a song about remembering, which I remember vividly from a roundabout/carousel ride as a child; the exhilaration of the ride with Frank Ifield's accompaniment was something I've never forgotten. (P.S. No yodelling here, as I can't!)
