THEME/PROMPT: "BEACH" - Anything thing evocative of the beach: sand, surf, ocean, waves, etc

TAGS: s070520, skirmish, songskirmish, feast,

WHAT: We'll have a 2 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 FAWM love.

Most Important: HAVE FUN!

i have a feeling (and it is confusing on the timezone thing that i looked at because it "corrected" EST to EDT saying it isn't used mostly at the moment) but I think the time for UK is 8pm BST not 8pm GMT (which would be 9pm) any way i hope to join in Smile
EDIT - the EST - EDT seems right cos the S in BST is Summer and the S in EST is Standard so even that convention is the opposite way round.

Hopefully will be able to join.

If I manage to stay awake until then Smile , bit doubtful at this point, but we'll see

A Sunday skirmish! Now we can get this party goin'.

I’m in - hoping to get at least some lyrics or something done for this

Thanks - I never know what's the correct designation!

Not long now... :o ;O
edit: the forum time is odd, it says its 13:44, but its 5 minutes to 8pm here??


Theme/Title: "Beach" - Your choice - Anything evocative of the beach: Ocean, Sand, Surf, Shore, Sea, etc...

Here's mine, which I did ahead of time! Since it took me two hours, I thought I would give you guys two hours to complete as well Smile

heh, just posted one this morning about such things........will try for another Smile or expound on that, it's really just a future verse or chorus anyway Smile

Hi @corinne54! I am in the middle of launching my partner on a kayak trip down the Chattahoochee (yay! for the alone time, but not so good on the timing), so it looks like I can’t make it for a “live” skirmish today. Maybe a late entry? Have a blast everyone!

Just saw the 2 hours Smile oh well, I need sleep anyway.

Here is my lyric. Thanks for the prompt.
It is about my favorite beaches.

“Where my road always ends”


True and timely! I'm a Florida guy, and I did actually go to the beach a couple weeks ago for the first time since January, and I'm going again this week. But I know where to go to avoid crowds.

Will listen and comment to others later http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/41521

Here's mine - will listen/comment this evening: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/41522

Here's mine, not sure it it was done within the time limit.


Just finished uploading now. I’ll listen to everyone’s as soon as I’ve got suitable snacks and beverages!

Thank you Corinne for the brilliant theme and for the extra time. I still didn't get on time though as I was asked for one thing after another lol but here it is. Better late than never, right? If anyone hears the words/vocals please let me know. I'm very happy to collaborate. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and ideas with me.

Here's mine! I'll comment on some of these after I get something to eat, and then I'll likely get to the rest tomorrow.

I just woke up was listening to songs here and saw The skirmish ones coming in. Jumped into a stream of consciousness And wrote this in 10 minutes


Had to finish teaching before I could record, but here is mine! Thank you for the skirmish! Smile


My first time taking part in a skirmish! Thank you for the prompt.
