Watch alongs / Listen Alongs

Recommended Posts

Seen quite a few people doing listen alongs of classic albums.

Does anyone fancy watching a classic Glastonbury set all at the same time and having a chat about it? What they remember, bits of it etc? All start watching at a specific time. So we are all at the same point.

I was thinking initially. Stevie Wonder 2010? It's on Youtube.

Might be a crap idea, but I am going to watch it at some point soon anyway!

A podcast I listen to has a section of the show each week called ‘Trade Off’ where they give each other an album to listen to that week. There might sometimes be a theme, other weeks there might not be. 
 

My friend and I (both teachers, so we have a lot of time free right now) are doing a daily ‘Trade Off’ but with a theme each day. Example, today’s theme is ‘An album by a band you respect more than any other’. We are listening to the albums and then putting our top 3 tracks from said albums into a Spotify playlist. 

We are also going to arrange our albums at the end of this into a (likely) Top 20 and whichever album tops our respective lists, we are going to buy the other person that album on vinyl. 
 

I really do think that it is going to help me stay sane during this period of down time :)

What are today’s albums then?

I gave him ‘Get What You Give’ by The Ghost Inside and I got ‘King For a Day, Fool For a Lifetime’ by Faith No More.

On Friday some friends and I all got tanked and watched Jaws at the same time on Netflix and talked about it on a WhatsApp group. It was hilarious. I'd been wondering if we could do something collective like that with EFestivals... The Simpsons thread had made me consider suggesting we all watch the same episode simultaneously, (or even have a mini rave to the same set - inspired by the electronic thread obviously) but I guess it would also work with Glasto sets!

Thinking of doing something similar for my birthday on Friday... creating a drinking game around a movie. Also thinking of making a quiz (as someone has done on here) and a collaborative (probably youtube) playlist where we add a song to queue in turns on a specific theme e.g. Act from Glastonbury 1971 line-up, 1972 and so on...

Used to play return of Jedi at uni. Everyone has a character if they say your name have a shot, name in subtitles have a double, someone says Force you all drink. Never made it to endor with people in serious trouble 🙂

The Franz Ferdinand listen along on twitter was great last night, worth putting the album on again and trying to follow it if you can.

They're doing one from one of the genuinely brilliant mid-00s indie albums Mens Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever. Should be great
