Music Group Latest News

Music Club members met on the 7th of February to play their latest music choices. This month’s session was well attended with 15 members present and we welcomed Steve and Nigel to their first listening session. The optional theme for the month was ‘Regrets’. This proved a challenging theme for some members of the group but provided some interesting selections.
The top five most popular tracks on the day were as follows:
1. ‘The House of the Rising Sun’ performed by The Animals. (111 votes) 
2. ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ performed by Queen. (107 votes)
3. ‘Dock of the Bay’ performed by Otis Redding. (106 votes)
4. ‘Stardust’ performed by Nat King Cole. (104 votes)
5. ‘Mr Blue Sky’ performed by ELO. (96 votes)

 

The February meeting marked the second anniversary of the Music Club. As if to mark this milestone, we were able to use the Shed’s own CD player to play our tracks for the first time. Many thanks to the Committee for approving this expenditure which has helped to guarantee the future of the Music Club and offer greater flexibility to the monthly running of sessions.
As is now traditional, we were able to determine which tracks played in the past year were the most popular. This was achieved by calculating the score per listener for the monthly winning tracks. As can be seen, it was a very close-run thing.
1st= ‘Backwater Blues’ performed by Bessie Smith (8.1 votes)
‘The Hornpipe’ from Handel’s Water Music (8.1 votes)
‘Albatross’ performed by Fleetwood Mac (8.1 votes)
4th= ‘The Air That I Breathe’ performed by The Hollies (7.9 votes)
‘Wonderful Land’ performed by The Shadows (7.9 votes)
