Each member of the club is allowed to ban one song from being played at the meetings. It’s not a total ban, but the songs on the Banned List will be limited to 10 seconds. So far the list includes
1. Old Time Rock and Roll – Bob Seger
2. Moni Moni – Billy Idol
3. Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon
The next meeting will be held on February 19, 2008 at the Highlands Lounge (11333 62 St) in Edmonton. The theme of this first themed meeting will be “Songs that remind you of your first girlfriend/boyfriend”. So bring your song and the story that goes with it. Bring some money to help pay for the drinks. Bring yourself.
The first ever meeting of the Highlands Music Club was held on Tuesday January 22. It was a small but enthusiastic group of music lovers who wanted to get together to exchange musical memories and to share new musical discoveries.
The idea is that for each meeting we will have a couple of hosts who pick the musical theme for that meeting. It could be anything from bring in a song that starts with the letter Z, bring a song that has a name in the title, watch a musical movie or whatever. The hosts decide. The hosts also bring a beverage that they want to share – a favorite beer, scotch, martini or whatever.
The club will meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month ar the Highlands Lounge in Edmonton, Alberta.
