[quote="Arlo Guthrie"]Back 'round 1971, I was playing in a bar in Chicago one night, and after the show I packed up my guitars and stuff and I was walking out the door, and a little guy stopped me! and he said, Arlo, before you leave, I wanna sing you a song.

I said, c'mon, man,

I don't wanna hear no songs.

I hate songs.

I don't even like my songs. Why should I like your songs?

I was just tired, I wanted to get out of there, I was being a butthead, y'know.[/quote]
So apparently I have voluntarily chosen to drink from the firehose. Well, fine. BRING IT.

Enough people were flustered by the 'is this new to anyone' guideline that I've added some clarification.
Quote:
Clarification! A number of people have expressed anxiety about whether their songs will be insufficiently obscure and hipsterish. That's not the idea here - we're trying to share things we like, not have a biggest-hipster contest. And, yeah, fields of exposure vary A Lot. If an artist doesn't show up on, say, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_be ... ing_albums, you probably don't need to worry about it. Even if they do, as long as you don't pick their best-known songs from their biggest albums, no problem. And even then, you're totally free to ignore this advice.

(For the record, with 21 intents and 168 tracks registered thus far, the overlap is vanishingly small. I count four artists who have been selected by more than one entrant. And one song.)

I'll add, I would be completely delighted to see anything off the Eagles' Greatest Hits show up on my list. Regardless of whether the album sold 42 million copies. (I *like* the idea of making a game for a song I know!)

Yeah, there was some conversation on the mud earlier to the effect that Hotel California is actually something of a natural for an escape-the-room/building game...

And You Can Never Leave works pretty well for the title.

So, since new intents have slowed down a bit and I thought it might be interesting, here's a graph of the songs submitted so far, by year:

(There were a small number of songs before 1964, but so few, and so spaced apart, that I thought it best to exclude them from the graph.)
