Silly Suggestion -- re pictures of now playing

Postby jgkojak » Fri Aug 05, 2005 2:02 pm

With all the new non-LP stuff- I wonder if, instead of the little hand pointing to a ? icon, it would look better to just have a generic picture of a 45rpm single(or even better, an APPLE 45rpm single-- or a CD for the CD Single released and vinyl for the pre-CD single releases).

Also--

The Paul McCartney Page is quite a long list--

-Combine the Oobu-Joobu tracks to one listing
-Move At the SPeed of Sound and Band on the Run to the Wings listing
-Consolodate all single entry listings (IN Laws Soundtrack, My Brave Face CD Single) to one listing "Singles and Tracks" with the other Singles and B-sides (or, do a short Singles for Spies Like Us, Once Upon a Long AGo, etc) and then a B-sides and Tracks for b-sides, bonus tracks and soundtrack items.

Just a few thoughts-- keep up the good work!!!

It looks like all the new entries are getting quite a bit of airplay!

Much easier to find stuff!

Notice an error when you click next to get the other 19 tracks (it goes to the normal a-z listing instead)-

Also- a couple repeats (Looking For You, Figure of Eight) are on there.

Not silly at all. In fact is was on my TO DO list. This is exactly what has stopped me from adding these, how to organize them. That plus I had to edit each track with all the details, I still have to add composer, picture etc.

The next listings bug has been fixed, please check.

I've added pictures to the singles. I've also made many other modifications including highlighting REQUESTED songs differently.

Also added more songs to the Single section

Thanks, really, for all of the great music. A lot of this I either don't own, or have never even heard before. The rare b-sides and unreleased music makes me feel like its Christmas morning. Great job to all involved.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.

I think I posted before-- I love Macca but frankly feel the need for some new blood- I've played all the albums to death- so its the B-sides and rarities that are fun to hear -- and the neat thing is- there are enough of them (even alternate mixes- check out the 'single' mix of Figure of Eight!) that even if its not dynamite (Atlantic Ocean, Love Mix) its fun to hear once or twice.

PS

Where's PARTIAL TO YOUR ABRACADABRA!!!??

Hey-

If you build an all Macca-Beatles station, youre bound to attract some, what would a polite word be, completists?
