1 Discussion Cover version by the same artist years later Second Hand Songs is about cover versions. Of course our concentration is on other artists doing covers of previous artists. That's all good. But it also happens that the artist who made the original makes a remake which is so different at times it is a 100% valid cover version of his/her earlier myuuzik 2008-01-02
2 Discussion Re: Cover version by the same artist years later Well in these particular two cases, Kim Wilde did a dance version of hre earlier song that is so different. Cyndi Lauper did a reggae version of an earlier pop hit. -- It is interesting to note various "versions" as addressed to different audiences. For example: The version for pop audiences Sha myuuzik 2008-01-02
3 Discussion Re: Cover version by the same artist years later I remember the Shania versions called in colour terms: the Blue, the Red version etc. "Forever and For Always" Red version sounded like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om4s71i0J5Q The Blue version (remarkably different) sounded like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IpNsZ_WjiE These are myuuzik 2008-01-03
4 Requests The origins of Omer Adam's "Hopa" This is was a great summer hit for Israeli Omer Adam called "Hopa" (or I think it is). But I am sure it is a well known traditional song rather than an original. Any ideas what is the original song... Even if you don't know about it I am sure you'll enjoy it just the same http://www.youtube myuuzik 2011-07-15
5 Feedback Re: How can we add videos to SHS website? Pictures... Absolutely. I think having a picture of the artist adds value to a page. Actually it would be a great and very welcomed feature to be able to add missing photos to various artist pages. myuuzik 2011-07-21
6 Feedback Re: How can we add videos to SHS website? In that case, if the choice is limited, can we insert a YouTube video by providing it's URL or are we limited with the choices given. In some cases I was able to locate certainly better videos, but I wasn't able to insert them. myuuzik 2011-07-23
7 Feedback How can we add photos to SHS artist profiles? I notice that many of the artist pages do not have actual photos of the individual artists or groups. A good example is Joe McElderry page for example [[artist|50067|Joe McElderry]] Is there a way to do this now? Will uploading photos be available to editors or can this be allowed for gener myuuzik 2011-07-26
8 Feedback Re: How can we add photos to SHS artist profiles? Regarding Joe McElderry I mentioned, this would be a good opportunity to suggest some photos for possible inclusion on his artist page [[artist|50067|Joe McElderry]] Two very typical photos of Joe McElderry would be http://thetalentzone.co.uk/images/uk/joe/joe12.JPG http://www.btvision. myuuzik 2011-07-26
9 Feedback Re: How can we add photos to SHS artist profiles? I thank you for the addition. Greatly appreciated. But the main question remains for general editors. Are adding photo for now proviledges for the administrators and the main editors or is there a way to add them ourselves rather than via threads on the forum? myuuzik 2011-07-27
10 Feedback Artists listed for the first time on SHS Our lead page tells us we already have 45669 artists (singers, bands, songwriters) already listed. This is already very impressive. But there are tens of thousands not listed yet. So every week, we have new names added... So I think it would be a very cool idea to have a listing of newly accepted myuuzik 2011-07-29
11 Feedback Re: Artists listed for the first time on SHS I know about this feature. It lists: New covers - The newest cover additions to our database. New samples - The newest sample additions to our database New works - The newest work additions to our database.

12 Feedback Re: Artists listed for the first time on SHS That's great. So some good will come out of this thread and more people will have access to vital interesting leads :) After my posting, I notice the features have been duly added and now we have access to all of them. Thanks. myuuzik 2011-07-29
13 Feedback Re: How can we add photos to SHS artist profiles? I think uploading photos is as much fun as uploading music videos actually. And you know the expression, "a picture is worth a thousand words". I firmly believe that photo of an artist or a group enhances their appeal and is a great addition to the information. It is also a thrill to give a myuuzik 2011-08-01
14 Feedback Re: How can we add videos to SHS website? Bastien, have you found a good way to be able to insert URLs of our choice that are not given in the automatic searches? You said you were going to have a look at such a possibility. === On another note about videos: I noticed something happening. When there is no music videos on a certain myuuzik 2011-08-01

17 News Re: Top 50 Classic Alternative Cover Songs Part 2 I was excited when I checked the list, as I know a few of these cover versions actually. It is so thrilling to know they have made the list. Anyway our site would be the most excited with these as it is our 'raison d'etre' to report on cover versions anyway. myuuzik 2011-08-01

20 Requests Origin of refrain in Bob Sinclar feat Colonel Reyel & Mr Shammi - "Me Not A Gangsta" There is a hit in France by Bob Sinclar featuring Colonel Reyel & Mr Shammi - "Me Not A Gangsta" The refrain of the song sticks in my mind as a very well-known song, probably a massive hit from the 1960s or 1970s, probably based on some ethnic rhythm. But I don't remember which song it was? myuuzik 2012-01-02
