HOST: Scubed

THEME: DRIFT (either as a noun or a verb - drifted, drifting, etc.)

TAGS: #SSS2b15

WHAT: We'll have a song skirmish and it will go something like this:

1) At the start of the event, I'll announce a title or writing prompt.

2) All participants write, record and post a song within an hour. (Lyrics-only posts are also absolutely fine. And if you take longer than an hour, PLEASE post anyway. There are no 50/90 police!)

3) Participants share links to their songs. Fun and embarrassment ensue. But most importantly, everyone has one more song!

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

If you participate, please listen to (or read) and comment on the songs of the other skirmish participants. (That's part of the fun!)

Good luck and enjoy!

P.S. If you can't start at the announced time, you can still participate. Just post a song within an hour after you start.

I'm looking forward to this! Smile

Okay. I'm in.

Am playing at a farmers market gig. Improvisation time!

"Drift" - see OP for details.

Have fun! I look forward to hearing your creations, although I will probably not be able to listen & comment until Sunday night EDT.

Thank you Sharon for inspiring prompt. Here is my contribution:

It seems it consistently takes me an hour to write lyrics alone. I would have posted them and kept working but had some connectivity issues, so here it is a little late but with a demo. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/24718

Incidentally, I don't know what converter you're using for the time zones, but here on the West Coast (PDT), this skirmish went live at 8:00.

and here's mine-- got a very late start but the whole thing was under an hour for sure

With just 20 minutes left before next skirmish, I dashed this off!
