2012 Song Of The Year - Open Format Contests

**** Now scoring - see post #20 for results ****

*************************************************************

Here is schedule for the 6 Open Format song contests in 2012. Open Format means that there are no arrangement/production restrictions. (note that these comps will be running on alternate months with the 1+1 competitions)

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.

Feb: 6 - 10 (enter) 11 – 14 (scorecards)

Apr: 9 - 13 (enter) 14 - 17 (scorecards)

Jun: 11 - 15 (enter) 16 - 19 (scorecards)

Aug: 6 - 10 (enter) 11 - 14 (scorecards)

Oct: 8 - 12 (enter) 13 - 16 (scorecards)

Dec: 3 - 7 10 - 14 (enter) 8 - 11 15 - 18(scorecards)

*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 use the 1 to 10 scoring method. You are encouraged to grade the songs however you like, just bear in mind that 10 is the highest mark you can award and 1 is the lowest. Only one 10 and one 9 may be awarded.

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 2012 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. This might be an option for someone who has more than one song in the final.

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 :)/>/>/>/>/>

“All By Myself”

by Tom Tognaci

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=10203714

I deal with the loneliness

Like combing fresh cut hair

I convince myself that I’m alright

I can deal with the solitude

And the echo from upstairs

Now that the ghost is gone, I’m alright

I’d rather be alone and by myself

Than to be alone, while being with someone else

All by myself

Stowed way up high on some dusty shelf

All by myself

Just me, an island, unto itself

Some nights I reminisce

Back and forth in this old chair

Is it worth the lament?….is it really fair?

Black and blue is the emptiness

With a woman who can’t care

One thing that stands out, now, completely clear

I’d rather be alone and by myself

Than to be alone, while being with someone else

All by myself

Stowed way up high on some dusty shelf

All by myself

Just me, an island, unto itself

Some nights I reminisce

Back and forth in this old chair

Is it worth the lament?….is it really fair?

All I need is my poetry

And the music that I play

To stretch these untamed wings and fly away

Golden Pie

All music/lyrics Steve Ison

I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up

I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up

And when that flame is growing high

Will bake me a Golden Pie

I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up....

I'll shift those stones that block my stream to let it flow on

I'll shift those stones that block my stream to let it flow on

And when the water meets the sea

then i'll be the real me

I'll shift those stones that block my stream to let it flow on...

I'll use my strength to mine the gold thats held in the rock

I'll use my strength to mine the gold thats held in the rock

And when i strike upon that seam

i'll set free a shining dream

I'll use my strength to mine the gold thats held in the rock....

I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up

Yeh I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up

And when that flame is growing high

Will bake me a Golden Pie

I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up....

Love's gonna bake me a Golden Pie

Love's gonna bake me a Golden Pie

Love's gonna bake me a Golden Pie...Yeh

Love's Dangerous

Steve Ison (Music) Steve April/Steve Ison (Lyrics)

Lookin' for the perfect stranger for your fantasy ?

Are you feelin' the obsession for a touch of kinky D?

if you like extremes,wanna take it to the limit

Like smokin' in bed your house burns down in minutes.

If you want the Hilton sisters on your quayside boat,

Knight in white satin the virgin's in the moat.

Screaming about her father,

stands with axes in your dreams..

One to chop off your head,

the other for your seams.

Love's dangerous,Love's Dangerous..

It lures you like a bait yeh Love is dangerous...

Love's Dangerous,Love's Dangerous..

and you found out too late that Love is dangerous..

Las Vegas Goddess lures you while her mans away

Showers you with roses,but you're the one to pay ..

You wake up in a cold sweat surrounded by the sharks

Screamin' for air and shooting in the dark..

Lalalala hey etc

Love's dangerous,Love's Dangerous..

It lures you like a bait yeh Love is dangerous...

Love's Dangerous,Love's Dangerous..

and you found out too late that Love is dangerous..

Fly, Fly, Fly

Music & Vocals: Tony Nybeek/Lyrics: Jonie Hajduk © 2012

Fly, Fly, Fly

You got an ugly streak in you

And a vicious bite

Nothing that I say or do

Ever suits you right

You hate my job, my friends, my plans

You can't stand the man I am

Used to tear me up

When I gave a damn

I'm gonna fly, fly, fly

Watch me disappear

I'm gonna fly, fly, fly

Fly away from here

Away from here

Sweatin' 'bout your precious stuff

Well don't worry none

I don't need reminding of

How you ain't much fun

Take a chill on the front porch swing

I won't be taking anything

But a breath of air

And a pair of wings

I'm gonna fly, fly, fly

Watch me disappear

I'm gonna fly, fly, fly

Fly away from here

Away from here

Me and Elly

©Jonie Hajduk/Lyrics Tony Nybeek/Music and Vocals

Me and Elly

Elly was the bright one, everyone agreed

No one ever doubted, Elly would succeed

Day she drove to college, how were we to know

Places life would take her and just how far she'd go

Call came in December, middle of the night

Elly overdosing, no, that can't be right

Prelude to a nightmare that never seems to end

Where Elly's lost in alleyways, but I remember when

Me and Elly climbed up trees

Rode our bikes with banged up knees

Told each other secrets in our bedroom late at night

Elly knows I love her

She loves me too

Elly, what am I supposed to do?

Daddy took to drinking, said he blamed himself

Mama took my sister off the picture shelf

Me, I keep believing she'll wind up at my door

Elly, if you're out there, I've never loved you more

Me and Elly climbed up trees

Rode our bikes with banged up knees

Told each other secrets in our bedroom late at night

Elly knows I love her

She loves me too

Elly, what am I supposed to do?

Life is always running

Towards us, in the end

Surprising us the way it did back when

Me and Elly climbed up trees

Rode our bikes with banged up knees

Told each other secrets in our bedroom late at night

Elly knows I love her

She loves me too

Elly, what am I supposed to do?

Fingerprints

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11706719

Verse 1

Her smile is all you want to see

As I wonder each time that you leave

Tonight are you gonna make

Those same excuses you're working late

Rise

You think that I don't know that

Chorus

She has your fingerprints, your fingerprints

It's me who's the fool believing you

I know she kisses you deep in the night

Taking the last part of you that was mine

She has you fingerprints

Verse 2

Her touch is all you want to feel

You can't hide--those feelings are real

She won't love you like I did but

Leave you nothing--it's a fact you'll admit

Rise

I should let the whole world know

Chorus

She has your fingerprints, your fingerprints

It's me who's the fool believing you

I know she kisses you deep in the night

Taking the last part of you that was mine

She has you fingerprints

Bridge

Like a dandelion blowing around in the wind

I'll never hold you again

Solo

Chorus

I know she kisses you deep in the night

Taking the last part of you that was mine

She has you fingerprints

The Wardens Wife

Steve Ison (Music) Steve April/Steve Ison (Lyrics)

I can hear them call my name

They're standing on the porch

Looking down that lonesome road tonight

But i'm kidnapped by a man

A trustee from the pen

He says he'll kill my daughters if i don't obey him

Run Highway Run

Roll River Roll

Take me back to my babies

Roll river roll

Run highway run

Back to my babies

My husbands walking round his Kansas Prison block

and my daughters are attending Sunday mass

But i'm on this chicken farm chained up to a bed

Watching him watch over me thru broken glass

Run Highway Run

Roll River Roll

Take me back to my babies

Roll river roll

Run highway run

Back to my babies

Highway 1 -Run run

To our little house in the sun

Every white lines a friend of mine

Let 'em run

Please let 'em run

He's walking me to church

His arms around my neck

Showing off his 'wife' to Ma and Pa

He smiles as they walk by

Then hisses in my ear

Don't forget that i know where your children are..

Run Highway Run

Roll River Roll

Take me back to my babies

Roll river roll

Run highway run

Back to my babies

Destination

All music/lyrics Steve Ison/Harper Stephens

I can feel the light of love flowing

See the colours in the falling rain

Like the magic of an english summer

Now you've come to me again..

On the street below the crowds are gathering

Try to find you amongst the big parade

I feel confused and turn around,

see you smiling so sweetly -

and then i know that its alright

My inhibitions fade

and there's multi-coloured musicmen

all searching for a sound

and there's children floating big balloons

high up above the ground

and i'm wondering should i stay back here

or go with them to the station

to catch a train that says

'For those who dream of liberation

Hey lets fly above this crowded city

See the sunlight on the fields so green

We'll make love beside a clear blue river

All we've gotta do is dream..

and there's multi-coloured musicmen

all searching for a sound

and there's children floating big balloons

high up above the ground

and i'm wondering should i stay back here

or go with them to the station

to catch a train that says

'For those who dream of liberation

Words, Music, Performance by Jason Kalman

Run to where the water meets a setting sun

I’ll meet you there and pray we’ll be as one

Cause there’s no way I’d ever leave you stranded here alone

Upon this rock that lives and calls the South Pacific home

A million miles away from home and somehow you are here

There is no place on earth I would not go to have you near

I’m trapped inside this love that runs so deep and keeps me blind

To know that you will leave me and this paradise behind

Run to me with arms so wide

And Love will keep my dreams alive

We made it through this life as friends

We’ll make it through rough times again

The city is awake at night and battered from this storm

The wind so strong and rain so hard the island will transform

And so our fate is bracing from the tide that’s rising fast

A flood of hope is racing that our love will somehow last

Run to me with arms so wide

And Love will keep my dreams alive

We made it through this life as friends

We’ll make it through rough times again

“Love Is A Hard, Hard Heart Ache”

by Tom Tognaci

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=10159995

Love is a motion, where the spirit wants to go

Love is emotion, a blue sea of undertow

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a fire that can make you feel alive

Love is a liar that can pierce you like a knife

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is as free as the wind blows

As only Winter knows

If love is only for your body to make…

…Then love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a starlight, which can steal you from the moon

Love is a midnights bastion, wailing like a loon

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a flower, waiting someday to unfold

Love is a power, in a flash it can explode

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a hard, hard heart ache

FALL OF MAN

(SoundCloud link)

(Soundclick link)

Words, Music, Performance by Jason Kalman

Drums: Andy Hamburger

I traveled time

To where the Tigris and Euphrates bind

Past the armed Cherubim

And the beautiful Seraphim

At the tree of knowledge

Stands a girl

It’s the fall of Man

It’s the fall from Grace

If I stop Eve Now

Could I save our fate?

Fall of a man

It's the fall of man

Eve, I know it’s hard for you to understand

The role you play in the fall of man

I beg you please just put down the prize

And walk away from the serpent’s lies

It’s the fall of Man

It’s the fall from Grace

If I stop Eve Now

Could I save our fate?

Fall of a man

It's the fall of man

Eve she smiled at me and then she said

I want to know love

I want to feel the pain

I want to see my naked soul dancing in the rain

I watched as Eve she took the bite

And I saw her tears flow

As it echoes our life

And the world that we know

Through a selfless sacrifice

It’s the fall of Man

It’s the fall from Grace

If I stop Eve Now

Could I save our fate?

Fall of a man

It's the fall of man
