Hey there, Pit.

This is the fourth compilation volume of the UG Songwriting Game.

And there are bonus tracks too, from Cover Week and Free Week:


For those of you who haven't heard of the Songwriting Game:
We have a week to write a song and post it in our group page; we then leave it to The Pit to decide which song was the best of the week.

The focus of the game is on the composition/songwriting, rather than the quality of the performance or the recording, which is why the recordings might sound a bit rough.

Each week's winners and runner-ups get to appear on a compilation album.
About cover week and free week:
The songs for cover week are covers instead, as you may have guessed from the name. The twist is that they have to be in a completely different style from the original.

Free week is for songs that have been in the making for a longer period of time. It's an incentive to finish old ideas and/or an opportunity to show the Pit some songs that weren't originally intended for the Songwriting Game.

Here's our group page, if you want more info or if you want to join.

Also, in some of the other album threads, after a few days, all the links in the OP stopped working. I don't know why this happens but it's very easy to fix. If anyone notices that this has happened, please let me know and I'll fix it right away.

inb4 someone asks me to sticky this
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Technically we've done in around 8 months what should take 6 years for a normal band to make.

20-piece bands are the future.

An album should only take 6 years to make if your band name is Guns n' Roses.

Good job everyone. At least I show up in the "other" categories.
Yeah it's a shame that you and Scarmadillo didn't get any songs in. You guys were on most weeks and most of the time you almost made it on the album.

I think I got (or at least tied for) 3rd place almost every week this time around. I don't mind that much though, since this is generally working as a motivational tool for me to actually write anything anyway.

why'd this get bumped?

It's been a sticky the whole time so it's kind of just always there

And also because Horsedick loves you.
He loves you more than the Soundcloud related songs algorithm loves him.

I signed up for the group, so I'm gonna see if I can finish this song I started on Monday by the deadline, or work on a new song for next week.

Ooh, guess I'll join in on that then. Does it have to be a specific genre, or is it anything people wanna do?

I know you have a group for this, but I hate trying to navigate through the group system and find stuff
Hey, look. Sigs are back.
#26
Ooh, ok then. That throws my first idea out the window though, I'll get thinking
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

I mean to unsticky these things after a month but I forgot so this is me posting as I unsticky it so that it doesn't just disappear.
