This past Monday ended the Fifth week in Round 13 of TLD/MM3AMMC. Before we continue, I’d like to congratulate Patrick Ferguson on his song, “SHUT UP!! (and Just Bang Your Head)” for being last week’s “featured song.”
A recap of how this works: So, on Monday morning around 8:30am or so, I go and listen to the submissions. Truth be known, I actually try to listen along the way. But, I really listen at 8:30am. I look over the assignment, compare the lyrics and songs to that assignment and then pick the one that I think makes the best representation of the assignment’s rules. To hear all the entrants this week visit the MM3AMMC website HERE.
This week, the assignment was from Eddie McBride: “Let’s get weird! I always enjoy stream of consciousness style lyrics, or as I like to call it “Lyrical Vomit”. Songs like Beck’s ‘Loser’ and Dylan’s ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ are great examples of this style of lyrics. Write your stream of consciousness song. It obviously doesn’t need to make sense. Just have fun with it. Maybe we can generate some silly smiles this week since the rest of the world is so messed up. Genre and style are open.”
The submissions are as follows:
- Clay Howard – “It’s Just…”
- Joshua West – “Words are Toothpaste”
- Doug Davis – “Last Day of December”
- Eddie McBride – “Live True Like Hyperbole”
- Corky McClellan – “I’ll Never Be Alone”
- Anand Gan – “Get It Right or Lose Control”
- Patrick Ferguson – “Teenage Hooker”
- Jerry Chapman – “The Beatle Wing”
- KG Noble – “Treadmill”
And the winner was… nah, you don’t get it that easy. I mean, I want you to listen to the whole show, right? So, you need to listen to find out who won. You can do that on The Less Desirables website, on iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn or the newest addition, Podcast Addict. Or, I’ll save you the trouble and post it here, I’m good like that. And yes, there may be a reposting of this next Tuesday, you never know.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Eight o clock Eisenhower, don’t get caught in the shower. Take toke take a ride, take it from the other side. Feeling ill, I’m at ease. Spin the wheel, wheel of cheese. The only thing that would have been. The only way is from within. What the hell am I saying?
What the hell am I playing?” – “Words are Toothpaste” by Joshua West (not necessarily the winner)
