Nope @Dutchbeat  the rules are the rules . due tomorrow   :lol:

I think @Susantaylor said she might join if she can write about fairies. They're supernatural right?  :shinyteeth:
I bet @Zedd or @Rachel_D or @Kellyanneg or @harriettornqvist  would be good at making paranormal music .. what do you think? Want to write songs about ghosts anyone?  ;D

I'm Bill and I'm just a normal guy.

Done! And in time for today's deadline  :lol:
I had a couple of hours free. Be prepared to be both amazed and scared :o
It was written in literally a couple of hours so not really a serious contender but I got the ball rolling!  ;)

Sorry, I wasn't able to rustle up a ghosty  lyric & music for this month's Challenge. But looks like there's a healthy list of contenders. ;)
I look forward to listening to the songs. :)

Why does this thread look so weird? What is going on around here?
 :oI'm scared.   :o
@Dutchbeat  why is your writing ending up randomly in other people's posts?

I will be most disappointed if somebody doesn't include a Theremin in their music.
That's a  proper spooky instrument.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I will try and think of something, maybe just three minutes of Theremin,  but don't hold out too much hope @Dutchbeat
