MIDWEEK Wednesday Skirmish, August 10th, 3PM EST, 8PM pm in London; noon in LA

Title/Theme:

TAGS: skirmish , songskirmish,

WHAT: We'll have a song skirmish and it will go something like this:
1) At the start of the event, a title or theme will be announced.
2) All participants write and record a song to that title/theme. They have an hour to do so.
3) Participants share links to their songs. Fun and embarrassment ensues. But most importantly, one more song is written!

NOTE - how about two hours to work with instead? Smile

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

If you participate it is customary to listen to (or read) the songs of the other skirmish participants and comment! I will try my best to see what people do for this! I may not be able to take part myself though.

I'm working from home so I may be able to sneak away for a bit to participate!

I'm in, and two hours are great, Smile

I'm in!

hello?

Uh - oh - Maybe we have 2 hours to allow a grace period of 1 hour for @marvsmooth to post the title Biggrin

Biggrin

I'll use my full two hours no matter what Biggrin

Maybe we just start doing some music and hope that the subject will fit...

That sounds like a great idea!

I just FB messaged Martin, don't know if that will work...

I'll tune my guitar ...

Wait a little longer or go for a backup?

LOL - Do you want me to toss out a title? I have one in mind....

Well, I'm tossing out a title - "Wait" or "Waiting" - Any permutation is fine

Ok, I made the music - playing percussion is a bit a race against time because I don't want to disturb my neighbours! Now let's see what to do with the lyrics...

Thank you @corinne54

I was going to suggest "New Friend" or "Old Friend".

I should probably give up 50/90, because I'm always doing something that gets in the way. Sad

Ah, don't give up @marvsmooth just write a song about it Wink

I'm getting too tired today, have to finish my skirmish tomorrow ...

Just a (very much improvised!) blend of the two subjects: "Waiting For A New Friend".

I completed recording my almost exactly 2 hours after @corinne54's prompt was posted, and I'm doing all the uploading business now...

Today is International Lazy Day, so I didn't finish my skirmish! Maybe I'll go back to it later
And @marvsmooth don't you dare leave! Do what you can! Smile

This was a good experience for me. It wouldn't have happened if the title had not been late arriving, so in a strange way, thanks @marvsmooth. I know your heart is in the exact right place, and I appreciate you instigating this skirmish!

*18386 "I Wait" Smile

Also, I have an appointment to scoot off to, so I will give comments later.
