WHAT: We'll have a song skirmish and it will go like this:
1) At the start, a title or theme will be posted here that must be used in song (creative variation is allowed) as well as points for words used in songs (trust me, it will work)
2) All participants write and record a song to that title/theme. They WILL have TWO hours to do so. Collaborations welcome!
3) Participants share links to their songs and comment on each others' work. Fun!
4) Everyone wins! Virtual prizes for all who play! But you can't win if you don't play!

Be sure when done to tag your song and also post a link to it in this thread!

You had me at "Everyone wins!" Wink

Oh why not! Need a jump start on the muse

yes!

This is perfect. I might make this my week 10 song since it's about writing a short song, under 2 minutes. I may be able to write 2-3 songs if I'm feeling ambitious. I'll check back in a little bit.

Did everyone catch the detail of TWO HOURS? Luxury!!

Working away...

Just got home and started at 5:30. I got a decent lyric (sort of), but my wife is teaching piano now, so I will have to do the music later.

Lyric only, a bit bawdy so it's bearing the scarlet tag of NSFW.
