Gary's sound appealed to me a lot as a preteen who was enthralled with the new synthesizer sounds for a period, but 40 years on it sounds merely blandly pleasant. I can't detect any emotion in his singing, but I'm sure that was his intention. Turn it up slightly. (I'm sure there are dozens of available knobs and dials to do so.)

one of the AM radio staples from my youth. Turn it way up and @lovelyritametermaid should like this. I offer this as a companion piece.

Kinda remarkable that 1971 radio played this one lots, considering how much anti-drug propaganda was about at the time. I guess that its innocuous country-rock sound was just too pleasant for the radio programmers to ignore. Turn it up a little.

Well I don't know if @Dingle Lad is considering in following the rules of the thread but Imma ignore it and respond to you because that Bo Diddley track made me really laugh so please turn it up. A friend of mine used to bug me because he said I always listened to "grandpa music" and since then as a joke I usually bring to him the most dated, hilarious songs I can get my hands on and we always laugh it up. I'm probably showing him that song the next time I see him. It'll probably kill him from laughter.

Here's a little gift from Argentina.

You are supposed to turn up or turn down the song before (in this case Bo Diddley's Say Man) before posting a new song.

My bad, I say turn it way up but @vonbontee knew that already. My point is that I waited for someone to post for six days but no one did. VonBontee put down in a previous post some etiquette which I've been following, I actually posted while working and forgot to give an opinion.  As for the song Jules posted I'd like to hear an edited version. What's going on is fun but exteremely repetitive. I'd say leave it at the same level.

Hmm I'm gonna say turn it down. I can see how it could be a really fun song but maybe it's the giant drums, the backing bomboms, or maybe I'm just not in the mood right now, I don't want that any louder than it is.

Another example of a U2 song not really going anywhere. The instrumental is almost interesting for the first 30 seconds, but after that it just sounds the same. Turn it down

Turn it up a little-- it's pleasing in that it's upbeat and the main vocals are good enough. I guess the biggest thing that I'm not a fan of regarding the song is the subject matter of the song, maybe I'm being oversensitive but it just rubs me the wrong way a-hard-days-night-paul-10 I also could do without the "one two three four stick around we'll tell you more" and all that junk.......

I like "Teeny Bikini", its kitsch! Was a formative record of my young years, on the old "Goofy Greats" sampler...

Turn the Killers up at least one. I liked the convoluted melody; beat's kinda stiff.  It's a pretty good song, good singing...don't think it needed so many effects and digital-drone. Turn the Killers up...two!

What do we think of this?

Starr Shine? said

In this game you put down a song that you like (It can be any song not just Beatles)
Then the next person can Turn it up or turn it down if they liked it or not

Then they would put up there song and the cycle continues!

 
I Will - Beatles

  

This is post #1.  Nothing is said about how many people have to post before you can post again other than "the next person".  If you wait  for someone to post remark on his or song. There is also nothing said about how long you have to wait. I see knoe reason why its a crime if some one takes the initiative to keep the thread current,  I can also tell you in scanning the first ten pages of post that the occasional person does post without remarking on the previous post. 

So where are all of these rules? Quote them in the next post. If anyone should set additional rules it should be @starrshine as she is the original poster. 
as for I Will since I'm quoting the initial post turn it up!
as for whatever that was @Von Bontee  posted I hope to never it again but I would like some context.

Here's a pre Zep Version of Jake Holmes' Dazed and Confused.

(Not posting, just a side note: I wonder what the total volume of new submissions is at this point. There seem to be a lot more turn-ups than turn-downs, so the accumulated volume is probably pretty deafening right nowa-hard-days-night-john-6)

While not stated in every game thread, DL, there is a basic rule that runs across nearly every game thread: At least two people should have taken a turn before your next turn, unless the game has been dormant for several days when you can bump the game by responding to the outstanding question and then setting your own.

Had you responded to the outstanding question, there would have been no problem; that was your one mistake...

That it has happened on occasion in the past is not an argument for it to continuing to happen and ignoring it. Sometimes mods don't catch all, but they do try.

I've said turn it off a good few times so that would reset the volume on a handful of occasions at least.
