Sorry this is so late!!! This past Monday ended the sixth week in Round 13 of TLD/MM3AMMC. Before we continue, I’d like to congratulate Eddie McBride on his song, “Just Live Like Hyperbole” for being last week’s “featured song.” He was the first to win his own assignment!
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 Corky McClellan: “Country music ain’t what it used to be. Write a good ol’ country song like those from the days of Hank Williams, George Jones, & Merle Haggard. You could even sprinkle the likes of Randy Travis & Dwight Yoakum and the like if you want to. Whatever it is, make sure it says something to the heart which is what you would hold your guitar close to as you croon this one under the neon lights.”
The submissions are as follows:
- Clay Howard – “Talking to a Ghost”
- Eddie McBride – “Real Country”
- Joshua West – “The Tiger and the Tale”
- Doug Davis – “Singer of Love Songs”
- Corky McClellan – “This is a Sign”
- Anand Gan – “Harlem Rose”
- KG Noble – “It’s Not You”
- Nathan E. (Corky McClellan) – “Bar Room Kryptonite”
- Jerry Chapman – “Sometimes the Angels”
- Patrick Ferguson – “A Teenage Suicide Tale”
So, there were 10 songs from 9 artists (Corky used his “alter ego” to do two songs) this week. 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…
“She said If I were you I’d sit back down and adjust my hat , get up and take one step up but don’t take no steps back , cause back in time is she was. God know those times were really tough, those times were really tough “ – “Talking to a Ghost” by Clay Howard (not necessarily the winner)
