Drop the Noodle Song Challenge #1

Everyone is a winner, but some people are more winsome than others

To test this theory, is having a contest… we will select  three teams and challenge them to create songs. The entries will be posted on this site, the voting public will comment on these songs, and some arbitrary process will be used to select a winner.

Song Challenge #1: “May Two”.… Teams will have to write two songs during May 2010, including: (a) an original song with lyrics and tune composed by team members, and (b)  a cover version of any song written in the last 30 years.

Teams: The teams for Challenge #1 will be as follows:

  • Team Aaron: (Aaron and Robin)
  • Team Mark: (Mark and Kerri)
  • Team Benji: (Benji and Becca and Kim and Tim)

Special Rules:

  • you can practice as much as you want, but each song submission must be recorded all in one day. You can take extra time to mix and convert etc.
  • Maximum of FOUR tracks to be used for the final cut.
  • all submissions must be delivered via gmail or an online web link in .mp3 or .wav format
  • all submissions must be received by the other teams by Friday May 28, 2010
  • Exceptions to these rules must be cleared with the other two teams

Perhaps Aaron can set up some doodad that has people vote for their favorite team, and the become a ‘liker’ of their favorite team on facebook, and then we can see who wins, for example by seeing whether “Team Aaron” has more members than “Team Benji”

This is ridiculous.

REMEMBER… this is about having fun and not winning per se.
