Music Hall - Song Lyrics

Postby Paul » April 26th, 2012, 9:13 pm

I'm in the process of setting up a new section of 'Music Hall Song Lyrics'.
A long-standing friend and contributor to these web pages has offered me his own collection of several thousand titles.
I've started, this week, trying to create these pages and am now on my fourth version. Feel free to take a sneak preview and let me have your feedback on any aspect: design, navigation, content etc.

You'll have to navigate your own way out as, at present, there are very few buttons!

Hello Paul, it is nice to meet you at last. I have just been perusing the new Music Hall, gosh, over a thousand you say! Will you be putting all the lyrics on there separate pages. You could split them up into decades, then do a few at a time. Just a thought. Seligor x
P.S. Love the continuation of the set up, looks really smooth.

Hi Seligor, glad you made it.
I think there are nearer 3,000 titles to be added to this section (29 folders with 100 titles in each).
I'm still trying to devise a navigation system between the pages... at present, the only way out of a song page is via the browser back-button. I should be able to sort that out tomorrow, maybe.

Oh Flavia Vanilla - that is simply marvellous!
Now I need to find some like-minded friends (with good memories!) to do this at a party!
