SUNDAY Skirmish, August 14th 3PM EST, 8PM pm in London; noon in LA

TITLE/INSPIRATION:

Something a little different - You are to write based on a self-referential theme - I might write "Corinne's Culinary Concoctions" (alliteration not necessary) as a lyric - You can be serious or silly - Instrumentalists - Compose music about YOU - that is you - Put all your feelings and bring you totally into your music.
Lyricists, write from your heart and express who you are.

YOU HAVE 90 MINUTES TO FINISH! Smile

TAGS: skirmish , songskirmish, self-skirmish,

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!

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!

Good luck and have fun!

Yes, please!

Is it 3 o'clock yet?
(bouncing off the walls in anticipation)

I may get to play in this one today Smile

Bump!

Joining now.

So while you were posting this, I was working (and worked for 90 min, including the writing and recording, by coincidence) on a new political song.. and since this skirmish title was not a title but 'write about yourself', and since at least some of the time I write, read and think about politics, then, sure, one could consider this a song that addresses the category.... so here ya go... a sort of 'semi-skirmish' (since it was such a vague category, i think it qualifies) http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/18527

working on it...

Here's mine

And Mike @mike skliar Smile I didn't intend the category to be vague. I actually wanted the skirmishers to dig a little deep into themselves. Tell us who they are. I know we do that when we write a song anyway, but I wanted something a bit more. The music should express their...soul, for lack of a better word.

Well, here is what I came up with: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/18532

"Give 'em Hell, Gargamel" *18534

"This Is Me, Pointillistically" *18535
perhaps not my finest hour... better make that 2-1/2 hours :P

Saw the prompt after dinner and had to jump in. I spent about 45 minutes on this http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/18541

tho i sort of did a semi-response, I may over the next day or two dig into this idea deeper and do another and more personal song... there have been some really interesting songs generated by this one....
