Indiepop Singalong! @ Indietracks - Saturday 2pm, train

Post by otterpond » Sun Jun 30, 2013 22:18

Do you enjoy singing along to your favourite indiepop songs? 'Course you do. You're human, aren't you?

This year, for the first time ever at Indietracks, we are inviting all you popsters to join us on the steam train to become one big SHOUTY indiepop choir!
It doesn't matter if you're shy, or think you can't sing - a) everyone can sing a bit, and b) no one is going to judge you! We'll all be there to have fun and to have a good old lungbusting sing-song.
And there'll be lyric sheets, so you won't have to mumble through the bits of songs you've forgotten :)

We're already working on a list of classic indiepop favourites to perform, but WE NEED YOUR SUGGESTIONS! What would you like to hear/sing?

Your Loving Indiepop Singalong Team

If you do 'What we do now?' by Just Joans I'll be there with bells on.
And we just can't wait to make more mistakes and to fluff our breaks, and to stuff our faces with cake.

All the Just Joans songs!

Or how about... We're From Barcelona by I'm From Barcelona? That's a proper singalong song. Or some Allo Darlin'.

Thanks for your interest everyone!

There's actually a few songs mentioned that are already being carefully considered, if not actually already in the 'dead cert' pile......
T-Shirt Weather....we'll see! If The Lucksmiths don't get a look in I'd be surprised.
Allo Darlin "Dreaming" very probable!
Heavenly - probably not "Our Love Is Heavenly" but perhaps their other eponymous track....
We're From Barcelona - an excellent suggestion, we'll see if markie & tonieee can play it!
A different Go-Betweens track is being considered....
The Just Joans...definitely happening!
Maybe some Camera Obscura, Teenage Fanclub, The Smittens, Belle & Sebastian? Come along and find out!

So come on, what else have you got?......BRING IT ON
:)

Your spirit will be within us Colin. If that spirit is vodka.

Just thinking that maybe we could do "Kill Karaoke" by The Haywains. Ho ho.

Brilliant suggestion! I'm guessing you mean the sweet one that Stephanie sings rather than the punky Hue one?

Anyone got the lyrics handy for this? It's pretty indecipherable to me!

Just had a bash at working out the chords for this and have something that sounds vaguely right. I'll keep going and see if I can knock it into proper shape by Indietracks o'clock.

Keep the suggestions coming everyone. I'm scribbling them in a pad and will try and get as many learnt as I can.

Of course if you already know the lyrics/chords for your fave singalong song then please let me know cos that will save me enormous amounts of effort!

I can see this making it onto the list. As long as the weather isn't teribble 'cos then it would just be upsetting for everyone.
