This past Monday ended the ninth week in Round 13 of TLD/MM3AMMC. Before we continue, I’d like to congratulate Jerry Chapman on his song, “Flags in the Ground” 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 Joshua: “After spending time overseas, I think it
would be a cool thing to work in a foreign language into your song. It doesn’t have to be much, but it should work with your rhyme scheme and make sense (or not, if that is your intent). I’m thinking ‘Michelle’ by the Beatles is a great example, where Paul basically repeats the verse in French. But it is up to you. It can be a single phrase, like ‘C’est la vie,’ or ‘Ma Cherie amour,’ to name a few others. If you are fluent (or married to someone who is), you can write as much in another language as you want to! So break out your translation dictionary and good luck!”
The submissions are as follows:
- Patrick Ferguson – “No Me Gusta”
- Eddie McBride – “Like Serge and BB”
- Joshua West – “I Will Be There”
- Anand Gan – “Buenos Noches from Old San Juan”
- Doug Davis – “What are You Talking About?”
- Jerry Chapman – “Watch Out Butterfly”
- KG Noble – “Dance with Me “
So, there were 7 songs from 7 artists. Clay said he just forgot to do the song, 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…
