I haven't been on in a while but was wondering - in the Rock n Roll section, we always used to post the prior person's song title and the singer and then our own, which I thought was nice because we didn't have to look back to see what they were responding to.
Now it looks like they're just posting their own song, but not the one they're responding to. Is this something new?
I've been posting in the Music Forum for a while and in the Song Title Word Association we always posted the song we took the word from to make it easier for the next person; and I also post the link to the song I chose because (I know for myself) I like to hear the song if I don't remember it, so maybe the next person might like to hear it, too...since we all love music!
But whatever works for everyone is okay with me. Just keep on rockin-n-rollin.
