2010 - Song Of The Year (Open Format) - Archive

Here is the Song Critiques Board Contest schedule for 2010. There will be 5 1+1 comps and 6 Open Format.

1+1 is one vocal, one instrument. Open Format has no arrangement restrictions.

The contests will be run for approximately 10 days (6 for entering, 4 for scoring) - these dates are provisional and will depend on the mod running it.

*note, all contests will be run from the Contests Forum - all 'live' comps are pinned.

The top two songs from each Open Format competition will be posted in this thread (1+1 comps have their own thread)in preparation for their Year End Final. (Tied songs will also go through).

All contests will now use the 1 to 10 scoring method. If you can't be bothered to read them go here :D

The song that is entered into a Monthly Competition must be the same recording with no changes made for the Final Competition.

The Year End Song Comps are for active musers only, so if a writer has not been present on the board since the start of November 2010 the moderator has the right to disqualify an entry

Someone may choose not have their song move on to the final competition if they wish.

For the Open Format comps the 12 qualifying songs from the 6 contests will compete in the Open Format year end final.

For more information on the contests, scoring etc. see the Song Contest Rules.

Cheers

Nige :)

With You

by David Butler (lyD)

Show me the future

Swallow my past

Tell me to love you

I'll do as you ask

With you it's all I can do

Paint me in colours

I've never seen

Take me to places

I've never been

With you everything's new

CHORUS

I've never been a loving man

But I hope I can be true

I've never been a loving man

But I know I can be with you

So do me a favour

And don't let me go

Tell me you love me

So I'll always know

With you I'll never be blue

CHORUS

With you the sun can shine down brighter than before

With you the rain may come to trip me up

But you'll be there to catch me if I fall

CHORUS

One Last Chance To Shine

Alistair S

An ordinary man in an ordinary town,

Ordinary shoes in an ordinary brown,

Getting old, and I’m,

Like these worn out boots of mine,

Looking for one last chance to shine

One last chance to shine,

One last chance to get it right,

Looking for one last chance to shine.

An ordinary night in an ordinary bar,

An ordinary singer and a battered, old guitar.

Music helps, I find,

Ease a troubled mind,

Looking for one last chance to shine

One last chance to shine,

One last chance to get it right,

Looking for one last chance to shine.

Lonely people here don’t ever talk - won’t share the time of day.

Driven by our fear, we always walk on by and look the other way.

It’s an ordinary life; an ordinary world.

An ordinary boy can meet an ordinary girl.

Couples passing by,

Happens all the time.

Lost in love, with every chance to shine.

One last chance to shine,

One last chance to get it right,

Looking for one last chance to shine.

An ordinary man, of ordinary means

An ordinary longing to escape the old routines

An ordinary guy

Long since past his prime

Looking for one last chance to shine

Looking for one last chance to shine.

Looking for one last chance to shine.
