May 1+1 Song Competition

59 posts in this topic

Meant to have the thread open earlier, but have been getting called into work quite a bit and it's slipped my mind.

May 1+1 Song Competition

Click HERE for contest rules.

The philosophy of the 1+1 comp is that it is something someone could perform at an open mic night. Typically it would be one guitar, one voice. Simple effects may be used but bear in mind the open mic idea of one voice and one live instrument and you won't go far wrong.

You are not allowed to enter your song if you have paid for the production, mixing, mastering, writing or performance of either the Lyric or Music. For no part of your song can you have paid anyone money.

Deadline For Entries: May 17

Voting: May 18 to 23

JELLY KNEEZ

When I aim to pleaze

She calls it jelly kneez

When we're on the floor

And she wants it some more

Oh she says don't tease

I want some jelly kneez

That's when she tells me she loves me so

Don't ever leave me, don't let me go

J jjjj jelly kneez

J jjjj jelly knee e eez

When we're turned around

And we're hitting the ground

Yeah it feels so right

That we'll go all night

When she gets what she needs

She calls it jelly kneez

That's when she tells me she loves me so

Don't ever leave me, don't let me go

J jjjj jelly kneez

J jjjj jelly knee e eez

Be on a slippery ride

When I open her wide

Oh yeah one more kick

It just takes a lick

Oh she'll beg me pleaze

I want some jelly kneez

That's when she tells me she loves me so

Don't ever leave me, don't let me go

J jjjj jelly kneez

J jjjj jelly knee e eez

Just wrote this 1 within the past 2 weeks.. I don't recall my inspiration , it's a humorous acoustic blues diddy from a Childs perspective about an adulterous preacher and a loose woman in his congregation , got a little edge , it'll make you smile or be slightly offended :lol:

Everbody loves Sally , I hope you do to

SISTER SALLY

Sister Sally sais he's sent from above

awww Sister Sally she can't get enough

gonna tell you my story bout a man of the cloth

from another time and innocence lost

Old Preacher sais son don't bet your soul

It's heaven or hell boy which way will you go

I aint sure bout me but I know bout him

I seen eem doin Sally she's married to Jim

Old Preacher sais son don't bet your soul

I wonder what he'd say if he knew what I know..

Somedays I wonder, hey I really do

how much is bull**** and how much is true

I Just ask Sister Sally she say he hung the moon

everbody loves Sally and he does too

Old Preacher sais son don't bet your soul

It's heaven or hell which way will you go

Old Preacher sais son don't bet your soul

I wonder what he'd say if he knew what I know..

yea , Sister Sally sais he's sent from above

we all know Sister Sally she can't get enough

yea , Sister Sally sais he's sent from above

we all know Sister Sally she can't get enough

Heart Full of Stones

© 2010

I have a token of each memory we made

little reminders so that nothing ever fades

a pebble gathered to remember precious times

holding each moment we shared inside

Now the velvet purse that kept them safe

These tiny symbols of our loving days

cannot hold your sad attempts in its space

they're a heavy pile in my hearts place

(chorus)

Your eyes are empty when they look at me

No more pebbles are picked up at my feet

I'm left to walk this path alone

and all that I have

is a heart full of stones

a heart full of stones

I need to travel down a road that's new

so I can replace these reminders of you

I'll kick up the dust and pick a flower instead

each petal for a tear that I will never shed

(chorus)

Your eyes are empty when they look at me

No more pebbles are picked up at my feet

I'm left to walk this path alone

and all that I have

is a heart full of stones

a heart full of stones

Just when you think my heart has a little room

you'll find that it's all filled up with blooms

I threw those stones back down on the ground

there are lots of flowers if you look around

(chorus)

Your eyes are empty when they look at me

No more pebbles are picked up at my feet

I'm not afraid to walk this path alone

my hearts flowers

now have grown

I have grown

I have tokens of each memory I've made.

Here's my entry for May's 1+1 song competition:

Still Madly in Love

music and lyrics by shawn poon

LInk here:

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=1051619&songID=9008356

Lyrics:

The rain falls

And time stood still

And I'm still thinking about you

Though autumn breezes blow

To tell me I'm still in love

Still madly in love with you

Your beautiful eyes and warm smile

The longer I gaze, the more I'm amazed at your charms

But it's in the inward glow, the passion flows

And you used to tell me how we'd use to dream

We'd travel oceans

and scour the seas

we'd ride on wings and fly forever through the breeze

And in God's eyes we could be strong

Thought we could sing this endless song

Of love through the rain and storm

But now it seems all that's left is shattered dreams

And wishing somehow that yesterday could be now

Still kidding myself that tomorrow would be better than before

I'm still madly in love

Still madly in love with you

Inside & Outside

by David Butler (lyD)

You were a time machine

One day you'll know what I mean

And I was thrown by the look in your eye

The look of an angel

But beauty betrays you

I needed to know you inside

But inside and outside you looked just the same

I fell like a fool when you called out my name

Nothing would change you

And nothing would take you away

Then when you told me

How you longed to hold me

You took me back to a sad memory

A beautiful lady

One who betrayed me

But I know you'd never do that to me

'Cause inside and outside you look just the same

I fell like a fool when you called out my name

Nothing would change you

And nothing would take you away

You grew like an ivy surrounding my heart

You crept up behind me and tore me apart

But I'd never change you

And please don't go away

And I know as the years pass us by

You'll give me something that time can't disguise

Inside and outside...

this is me by go-round

i go up but everyone is down

by the time i decend no one is around

i'm so tired of being you

putting on my happy face and jumping cause i'm told to

i don't care anymore

this is me

i'm tried of wondering what you think

i'm a freak

everyday the television tells us what we should believe

how to dress up like a doll and how to get your warhol

am i too pale, too skinny or just a little dumb

please label me which one we're anxiously awaiting

i don't care anymore

this is me

i'm tired of wondering what you think

i'm a freak

why does something have to be wrong if i don't speak

aparently being shy means i'm a freak

but i'm unique

this is me

I was hoping to have a new one to put into this, but it's clear I won't have time to record it. This will have to do (though I wouldn't mind re-doing this one too!)

So Special

Words/Music: Alistair Sutherland (Alistair S)

She don't need to believe every word he tells her

She can feel that he's real and he says what he means

Anyone can see

She believes that he's so

Special

She don't try to deny he's a little bit crazy

She don't try to deny that she may be too

(But) She's nobody's fool

Loving someone who's so

Special

Ch.

I saw her driving in her car on Friday

She smiled and blew a kiss for me

She'd still be mine if I had my way

And we'd be, so

Special

2.

I still have her picture in my pocket

It's right here in the pocket of my jeans

A fading souvenir

From (a time) when I was nearly

Special

Had a dream that I could make the big-time

In the days when she believed in me

Took me years to see

I would never be

Special

Ch.

I saw her driving in her car on Friday

She smiled and blew a kiss for me

She'd still be mine if I had my way

And we'd be, so

Special

This is correct, except that in this particular contest you are supposed to give my song a 9, and every other song a 5.

Thanks for your cooperation :)

I have been sweating away at exam revision, but I now have a day off so I'll get right on it. Or just borrow Neal's idea and award straight 5s from me averaging out at 9 for my own mark.

Hey everybody, sorry this contest doesn't have all the bells and whistles as usual like the Soundclick station (though I don't like doing them when half the contestants aren't on SC, feel like it can jumble up people's scores) and Tams sent me a message yesterday that reminded me I'd forgotten to reply to the votes for confirmation (though I think you can see in the new system when the other person reads your message?)

Basically, my back has gone out pretty badly again (old injury...wish it was a cool story like high school football or saving nuns from a burning church but it's just a lame one... bad lazy form working out at the gym) so I can't really sit at the computer for long spells. Worst of all my lawn is getting overgrown as this was the week I was going to catch up on all my yardwork, been busy at work. I like the look of cottage country style, overgrown long grass but I found out last year, the city of Toronto doesn't :blink:

Ahhh, just get a goat, cow or sheep, then you don't have to worry about the lawn, they have animals in Canada...right? :lol:

Oh, and FYI to everyone, I wasn't policing Mark, I just wanted to make sure I didn't get kicked out of the contest especially since Neal and Don are working so hard on getting me a lot of scores of 5!!!!!

Now, look here Simon, I know you kiwis have trouble with your vowels, but you can't let it slip into your spelling as well.

That should be "chick" and "meal", surely? And shouldn't it be "the meal is in the chick". Meal precedes male in this instance.

Just checking. Not Czech, chick! Check?

Since the voting is over, I feel OK saying this now. In a good group of songs, there was only one winner for me and that was Daddio with "Her Quintessential Life". What a great song! For me, the guitar could be toned down a little in the mix, but this one surely has legs! If it doesn't win, I'll eat my hat :)

I won't list every song (but well done, people!). However, I'd also like to give special mention to Go-round's "This Is Me". Atlanta obviously has a lot of talent!

I thought Alistairs song this month was stunning, so it got my vote - but, that said I thought your song was really excellent, Soddybottoms.

Looks like every song has been mentioned by someone - Should be a close scoring competition!

While we're waiting.....

I wish I could remember exactly how I scored everyone. I usually rely on having my scores PM'd back to me. I think I had Alistair's, Neal's and go-round's on top but to be honest, I struggled with the scoring and can't remember exactly how it all ended up when the dust finally settled.

Congrats Daddio, Jonie and Neal - that was how I had my top two, they're both excellent songs but Her Quintessential Life edged it for me. What a chorus that is.

Otherwise I thought it was a strong contest. Soddy's was possibly the best I've heard from him, So Special is good going on great (I still think it's lacking some of the passion of the video version!), Shawn's song had some wonderful moments. I enjoyed listening to every entry.

As for my song, it's clearly not written as a 1+1 and once my exams are over I'll put together a fuller, more upbeat version. Thanks to the one kind person who disagreed :D

Thanks Mark, hope you're still walking!
