Sorry this is so late!!! This past Monday ended the seventh week in Round 13 of TLD/MM3AMMC. Before we continue, I’d like to congratulate Eddie McBride and Doug Davis on their songs, “Real Country” and “Singer of Love Songs” (respectively) for being last week’s “featured songs.” Eddie was the first to win more than once and Doug got his first feature!
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 KG: “A lot of modern songs really break things up a lot. Write a song where the verses vary in their rhythm and rhyme schemes. They don’t have to be entirely different but at the very least they shouldn’t all follow exactly the same scheme. The choruses can be the same or different. It’s up to you. Any style.”
The submissions are as follows:
- Eddie McBride – “Walking on a Thread (Breaking in My Mind)”
- Joshua West – “It’s in Your Nature (to Leave Me)”
- Clay Howard – “Too Many”
- Anand Gan – “Not a Good Day for a Saturday Suicide”
- Doug Davis – “Running out of Last Calls”
- Jerry Chapman – “Flags in the Ground”
- Patrick Ferguson – “Unusual Lovers”
- KG Noble – “Only the Winners”
So, there were 8 songs from 8 artists. Although Corky had two songs last week, he didn’t make the Monday morning 3am deadline so he’s out. 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 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…
