Lyrics will be due April 24th.

It's that time again, pull out the mics, pull out your pens, pull out your guitar! Here's the basic concept for those who weren't around for the last (somewhat disasterous) one. You write lyrics, then get paired with a partner who writes music to, and records your song. Then people vote on which they like best. Ok, good.

I just put 6 people down as an estimate, if you're interested tell me. Also, I'll gladly give up my lyrics spot, so if we get 6(or 8 or 12 or whatever the max ends up being) I'll step down. Just wanted to get the ball rolling.

Rules

- Don't be selfish, if you CAN record, sign up for that. You can probably do lyrics too, but you won't get your own.

- Songs can't be over 5 minutes, the reason? People get bored. It's a bitch to upload. Etc. Etc. Etc.

- These should be lyrics, and understand that music has to be set to them. WORK WITH YOUR PARTNER, give eachother ideas.

- Have fun.

- VOTE when the contest goes up, that's what the biggest downfall was last time. People didn't vote.

- If you do not submit your piece in time, you will LOSE 3 points. Half of the people who signed up last time didn't turn in their recording.

id be happy to do either (or both!). but i kinda suck at singing, so that should be considered at all times.

if i do end up recording though, id need a decent chunk of time between getting lyrics and recording; at least a week i'd say.
my name is matt. you can call me that if you like.

I'll do lyrics or music, i have the recording stuff at my house, nothing fancy just a program and a mic but enough... i'd prefer to do lyrics though, is there any criteria for the lyrics or is it free choice?

If I need to do both, I can. When is it in for, the recording that is, becuase last time it lasted too long. Make it shorter and get things done quicker so in order not to lose intrest.

sorry for making your song suck last time XarcadiaX i would totally be up for doing a recording thing and murdering someone elses song but as of now my computer has decided it doesn't want to work any more so a new hard drive is in the mail. but whatever I don't think i'll be able to do it in time anyways. So i'll be up for lyrics. 20th is awfully fast by the way. maybe give 14 days from when sign ups end. that would be more realistic i think.

I don't think so... but we'll see when sign-ups end, because you're right

and Auals, how does alternate for recording sound?

And Further, I really think you should try to do recording too. Especially since you pushed me to do this again.

I don't believe we established a 20th deadline for sure i think that was jsut your suggestion. I say that once he closes the sign up then gfive liek ten days for it or something.

Woah woah woah...

The ten days after the sign up closes will be for the lyrics, then there'll be another 14 for the recording... right?

O, sorry bout that, i was just really tired and bored and wanted something to post. I also think that we should close the entrance of participants before choosing a final deadline. It wasnt my suggestion anyway, Ret decided that by himself. Sry to be a dumbass

If it's 10 days after sign up is closed to hand in the songs, then the writers have like a day to make lyrics.

What?

That's silly, people have written lyrics on this site before. That's why they have a Songwriting & Lyrics section. And I read something from Corey the other day. Omgz, I'm so confused.
