*************************************************
THEME/PROMPT: The theme is an exotic land or faraway place or even an ordinary local destination. Maybe you will write about a visit to such a place (Old Town Road by Lil Nas X or Paradise by Nilüfer Yanya or Two Tickets to Paradise by Eddie Money). Maybe you will use it to describe someone (Far Away Eyes by The Rolling Stones). Or maybe something more common like a local trip or activity (Hanging Out of Cars by Empath). Perhaps you'd just like to get on a plane and leave the COVID behind (Leaving on a Jet Plane by Peter, Paul, and Mary).

For additional inspiration go to https://www.mapcrunch.com/ and click the greenGo! button at top left to see a street view of a random place in the world. If you are not inspired, well keep clicking that green button until you are! The images are active so click and drag in them to view the whole scene or to "drive" along the roadway. I just did one and got a cool pic of what I assume are scientists at Danco Island, Antarctica! Here is that link in case you are interested, http://www.mapcrunch.com/p/-64.732833_-62.592222_203.37_0.07_-1

WHAT: We'll have a 1 hour song skirmish, and it will go something like this:

1) At the start of the event, I'll announce a title/prompt/theme/concept/ for your inspiration.

2) All participants write, record, and post a song within an hour. Lyrics-only posts and instrumentals are absolutely fine. And if you take longer than an hour, PLEASE post anyway.

3) Be sure and tag your song using the above tags, and also post a link to it in this thread down below.

4) If you participate, please listen to (or read) and comment on the songs of all the other skirmish participants and share the 50/90 love.

For some reason I thought I wouldn't be able to participate until Saturday (I guess it helps to actually read the schedule) but I should be able to rush home, shower and get my guitar fingers ready for this one.

5 Minutes until SHOWTIME!

Brilliant theme John. I'm late seeing it as I had to do something. I'm going to start now just in case something comes out Smile

Lyrics only at the moment - I have a tune and accompaniment - but health issues happening. Will update when I get the demo recorded.

Woo, that was some pretty focused work! I had ambitions of harmonies and percussion but there's only so much I can inflict on my neighbours at 11pm...
