November 1+1 Comp, now open for entries

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the November Song Contest – a 1+1 Format contest. For long-time Musers, please make note of recent changes noted below in the contest rules.
 
For any newcomers, 1+1 means the entry is limited to one instrument and one voice. No doubling, harmonies, extra instruments, etc. Think open mic and you'll get the picture. I will be hosting this month so PM me with any questions please.  And please note that Musers are not required to post their entries in the Songs Feedback section of MuseSongwriters for the 1+1 comp.
 
The timeline is as follows:
• Entries will be accepted now through Midnight Pacific Time Monday, November 27.
• Voting (scorecards) will take place Tuesday, November 28th through Midnight (MST) Sunday, December 3.
• Don’t start voting until I officially post the scoring instructions on March 28.
I'll post the results shortly after the December 3 voting deadline.
 
If you plan to enter, please review the revised rules, pinned in this forum.
When posting your song, please include:
•song title
•writer credits (If it’s a collab with another Muser please make that clear by including their M/M id)
•audio link

 

The longstanding rules for the 1+1 all apply, with the following revisions:


3. Once the competition opens for scoring, send the Moderator running the competition your choices for the top entries. The Moderator will announce how many songs you are to pick as your favorites; this number will depend on how many entries there are. The number will approximate one-third the number of total entries. All your picks will receive equal weight in the competition. 


4. The Moderator running the competition will post only the top-third high-scoring entries, in order of the number of total votes received. If your entry is not among those listed and you'd like to know how your song ranked, pm the Moderator running the competition and that information will be provided to you. 

 

5. Post-results discussion: This competition is envisioned as basically a feedback-free zone. Post-results discussions can and do take on lives of their own, and that is not likely to change. However, this discussion will be encouraged to focus on what you liked best about the songs that received your votes. You can also write about what you liked best about the songs that came closest to receiving your votes. Entrants who want constructive criticism for their entries are encouraged to post them for critique in the Songs Feedback section of MuseSongwriters.


Please include the lyrics on your post. You may include a small introduction about your song but any other text may be removed by the moderator. Videos are permitted. (Voters will be encouraged to refrain from watching any video until after they've scored the song.)

All Musers are welcome to submit songs as contestants or score the songs as non-contestants. Any questions or problems should be sent to me via private message (PM).

 

Good Luck, everyone!

 

Joan

Weeping Angels

 

Music/Lyrics -Steve Ison

 

Blessed with the heart of the angel, what a life for you

Picking up people discarded & making them a-new

The insect that flies at the window , you’ve gotta help set free

I guess that’s the way everybody could be…

 

But you feel like you’ve got no defences from feelings as they flow

Are they yours are they somebody elses? How are you to know ?

Wave upon wave of emotion,that’s how it’s always been

Is it the dream of your life or the life of your dream ?

 

Weeping angels in your eyes

Weeping angels feel everyone

Weeping angels on a smile that can hide the pain in their song

Weeping angels in your eyes

Weeping angels heal everyone

Weeping angels realise that they’ve got nowhere to belong

 

The mirror-hung vacant devotion -what a thing to give

But you don’t want to blame anybody -or tell them how to live

Cold or hot all you’ve got are your angels whispering inside

At the heart of all ways is to always be kind..

 

Weeping angels in your eyes

Weeping angels feel everyone

Weeping angels on a smile that can hide the pain in their song

Weeping angels in your eyes

Weeping angels heal everyone

Weeping angels realise that they’ve got nowhere to belong

Non-Smoker’s Blues

 

I love the way you walk 
It’s oh so smooth
I love the way you talk
It’s just too cool

I love kissing on you baby but
it’s like licking an ashtray

 

You’ve got great lips now
their oh so fine
they remind me 
Of very fine wine

I love kissing you baby but
it’s like licking an ashtray

 

Bridge:
We’re laying in bed 
you’re coughing up a storm
green sea monster’s floatin’ in the bowl
I just don’t know what I’m gonna do
If I have to freekin’ bury you

 

Your cigarette 
It stinks like shit
I wish you’d put it out
And quit, quit, quit.

I love kissing you baby but
it’s like licking an ashtray

 

I love kissing you baby but
it’s like licking an ashtray

I didn’t marry an ashtray
it’s like licking an ashtray

Hey guys, there's a slight effect on the vocal here in spots but it is just 1 voice + 1 guitar.

 

"Doesn't Make Sense"

 

Verse 1:

Jesus hates traffic but he really likes cars.
He’s got a ’58 Chevy that he’s cruisin’ ‘round Mars.
And New York City is a pit bull vortex ..
taken by the Dutch for a case of beer.
For a case … of beer, for a case of beer!
Oh it doesn’t make sense.

 

Verse 2:

Abraham Lincoln on a big white elephant ..
took a bullet in the head for the USA .
Now I’m high in the sky over the heartland,
thinkin’ ‘bout chasing the American dream.
The American dream, the American dream,
Oh! it doesn’t make sense!

 

Verse 3:

I’m going fishing off Madagascar.
Gonna catch me a Coelocanth …
swimming in the past and stuck in time …
evolved enough just to die on land.
Just to die on land, just to die on land,
Oh, it doesn’t make sense!

 

Outro:

Like a 20-dollar bill you can’t break at the bank,
it doesn’t make sense.
