I know TAB is not usually ok...but in this case I feel I'm not getting personal so it's ok.

When you make a thread about a "conversation in song lyrics" what are the usual rules?

There's currently a thread like that in chat...but it's not a conversation.

People just seem to take an element from the previous poster's lyrics and then find something similar...like

POSTER A "Oh baby do you know what that's worth?:

POSTER B "Ooh baby, baby, where did our love go?"

POSTER C "Go on now go! Walk out the door!"

Which is not a conversation at all! It's boring!

I thought it was meant to go more like

"I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, when I met you."

"I met him at the candy store..."

"Lies, lies, lies yeah...do I have to catch you out to know what's on your mind?:

And so forth...so the lyrics have to connect...to actually make a conversation!

AIBU? Am I wrong?

Yanbu I do not understand that thread at all.

FlyingElbows Sun 15-May-16 15:11:47

BastardGoDarkly Sun 15-May-16 15:12:08

I know what you mean, I thought it would be a conversation too.

Start one?

Am I wrong?

No, Walter, You're not wrong b..

DUDE! AM I WRONG?

I'm not sure what you mean either grin

MattDillonsPants Sun 15-May-16 15:14:05

I SAID it was trite! grin

You don't have to comment if you don't want to. Or if you think it's a silly thread.

Why click?

Thank you to those who have confirmed my thoughts.

agree. was not a conversation which is what I think it set out to be.

FirstWeTakeManhattan Sun 15-May-16 15:27:41

I was only joking OP confused

MattDillonsPants Sun 15-May-16 15:30:15

I wasn't responding to you Manhattan confused And...I was smiling...so why you'd take offence is beyond me anyway.

littledrummergirl Sun 15-May-16 15:30:36

There's a word game in chat that didn't seem to follow the rules either, add, remove or change a letter turned into make an anagramconfused
Surely that makes it much less of a challenge.

What is TAB?

Your comment followed mine hence my reply. I hadn't taken offence. I was merely hoping I hadn't offended you, but you know what? I'll just move on from here, then it's done with.

AdrenalineFudge Sun 15-May-16 15:34:55

What? confused. Not that it's trite - fair enough but rather about what on earth you mean?

diddl Sun 15-May-16 15:39:20

Tbh I don't think that your lyrics make a conversation either!

JurgenKlopp Sun 15-May-16 15:42:07

Ye wha?

YANBU, I thought the same, it's just a long list of random lyrics. Trouble with trying to have a convo in lyrics on a forum though is the inevitable morass of cross-posts.
