WOW!!!!!  You really outdid youorself,bud!!!!      :o   ;D

Songs I've heard so far:

Bread – Everything I Own
Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo sad!  I couldn’t stop cryin!  That sequence of photos of Jack – from hopeful to devastated – just really gets to me.  As I’ve said, I think the scene of Jack drivin back to TX is the saddest in the entire film.

Then, the switch to Ennis at the end really got to me again – more tears!!


Chris LeDoux – Bull Rider
I never noticed that cute bearded guy holdin the rope in the first picture!


Don Edwards – Coyotes
Love that picture of the three howlin coyotes!

Dolly Parton – What Is It, My Love?
Another song with great lyrics that sound like they were written specifically for BBM! First time I’ve heard this song.

Patty Smyth & Don Henley – Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough
Yet another song with great lyrics that sound like they were written specifically for BBM! First time I’ve heard this song, too.
Is there anything interesting up there in heaven?

Eric,

it's 7.35 am over here. I've just listened to Kd Lang's Love Is Everything and watched the pictures. I'm fighting back the tears.

Thank you.

Dwight Yoakam – What I Don’t Know
How do you keep on finding all these songs that sound like they were written specifically for BBM?!!!!!  ???


John Denver – Annie’s Song  and Harry Nilsson – Without You
Two more winning combinations of songs and pictures!             ;D


Tim McGraw – My Old Friend
Once again, I couldn’t stop cryin!  That sequence of photos is wonderful!   :'(  :'(


Thank you so much, Eric!!  Very, very well done!    :) ;D :D

Eric, this is so great.  MWA!  I love "Coyotes."  And as others have said, you found songs new to me and already beloved to me that fit so well.  Little did I know when I listened to "Behind Blue Eyes" three billion times in my youth that it would mean Jack Twist to me one day.  Same for "Without You," one of my favorite songs growing up.

And Milli, Milli, Milli, whoo-ee!  That is some seriously high-class entertainment.  Ravishing.  Thank you so much.

I wasn't able to experience this as intended but just looking through the slides is fantastic - a lot of the created pics and artwork is new to me, and stunning. I will still check out the slides in combination with the music when a new song comes on.  Thank you to everyone involved, what a novel concept and so well done.  You really did the story proud.  Your hard work is more than appreciated.  I can hardly believe how cool it is, another way to experience BBM!  :)  :)  :)

That was wonderful Eric.

I just followed the last bit for the second time. Thank you for repeating it once more for us Euros and Aussies. I was able to catch most of it.

You did some awesome work here. The pics matched so well with the songs and the lyrics. I discovered a few songs in a whole new way (Behind Blue Eyes, Everything I Own; never paid attention to the lyrics before and since English is not my native language, I don't have a clue what a song is about unless I listen to it, not only hear it).
And I discovered a few new songs here that I like (Tim MCGraw for example).

I second what nic said, it really is another way to experience BBM. I gave up fighting the tears somewhere along the way...

A big, big Thank You! to you and Milli.

Dear Eric,

I missed the music here in Oz but have just been through the amazing pics, fighting back tears along the way. Congratulations to you on this wonderful thread. Congratulations too, to Lucise, for your beautiful graphics. You got me good, Lucise!

Thank you so much for this outstanding presentation.  On the occasion of our first anniversary forthcoming, perhaps we can find a way to recreate the experience for users in a downloadable presentation available for a limited time.  We'll see what can be done.

Such beauty, all.  Thank you, thank you.  A thousand times, thank you.

This is my favorite (of a gallery of favorites):



THIS is Jack Twist.  The very essence of trying - trying to be everything he isn't (all the while not realizing that he already is more than most people).  The colors he wears are the colors of this movie.  Tan = Love.  Red = Compromise.  Blue and Black = One's True Self.

No more beans!

The Wonderful Baycityjohn is workin' hard putting the slideshow to video, as an actual slideshow!  :D :D :D

Here's a sneak peek:  http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3518365797160919289

(Be sure to watch it all the way to the end.  :'( )


We are gonna add a few more pictures to the shows.  If you have any pictures you think should be added to the show for certain songs, upload them to photobucket and feel free to PM me with the link.  :D


Thank you Baycityjohn, for all your hard work with this.  You got no idea how much it's appreciated.  :)

This is great news Eric  :D
When I saw this topic up again, I hoped you'd give the slideshow a rerun. But this is just as good.

I watched the sneak peek. Loved it. Everything I own was one of the songs that put me over the edge when I saw your slideshow  :'(


Thank you BayCityJohn and Eric!  :-* Looking forward to it.

Howdy fans of the BBM Radio Slideshow!   :D

Well, it just so happens I came across some free "slideshow video editing" software, and I am now pleased to announce that the slideshow will be transformed into a new video presentation!  Kind of how it was really originally intended to be:D   I will even be adding more pictures to the original slideshows, and also creating new slideshows for some of the newer (and older) songs you hear on the station!


With that, here is the first converted slideshow video: :)
(You can view the original slideshow pictures here: http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,7710.0.html)

 
The song is entitled "An Empty Field" by the artist Hammock.  It is one of our ambient "mood" tracks we play on the station.  This song continues to be one of the highest rated tracks on the station, specifically for the mood and feeling of BBM that it envokes.  Setting it to the slideshow, you really understand this and get the feel this.

^^ Excellent John.  Keep 'em coming.

I'll probably start a new thread on here soon with all the videos now made from the slideshow.
