Hi all!

A lot of us might remember our (almost) most popular kitchen challenges so far: 'The Kitchen Cover Challenge (2016)' and of course the second edition in 2017 as well.
We're going to start the 3nd edition of the Cover-a-Kitchener Challenge right now and we're interested to hear who's going to join us!

The Kitchen Cover Challenge assignment remains the same: 'Cover a song of one of your fellow kitcheners in your own preferred style'. Solo, remix and collaboration entries are allowed.

Motivation:
Back then we figured this kind of challenge:
-Encourages to listen to each other's work (searching for a song to cover), which will contribute to our involvement with each other (and feel free to comment on any thread of any kitchener, bumping it up and give it some extra attention, while you are searching for a song you'd like to cover!)
-Encourages to share the progress of the cover and get live feedback from the community at any stage of the development of your cover and help each other improve (post your creation at any stage!)
-Helps to get to know each other better
-Contributes to the feeling we are all stars, which we are!!  8) 8)
-Encourages promoting songs of fellow kitcheners on Social Media (the original creators will be credited properly, thus it's very likely some traffic will be drawn to their original song as well)
-Results in many surprises especially for the one's who are BEING covered. Just imagine how nice would it would be to hear a completely different version of one of your songs, covered and performed by a fellow kitchener!
-Results in fanTAStic submissions, I'm still so proud of our last 2 year's entry list..

We'll start the challenge right now and it will run until August 25, 2018.

Btw: The top-5 results will be announced right from the Belgium Kitchen 5ys anniversary summit (5-10 European kitcheners will gather there) in the weekend of September 7th 2018 !!

The assignment:
-Cover a song from a fellow kitchener (doesn't have to be someone who also entered this challenge), in any style you prefer.
-You are allowed to enter solo, or team up with another kitchenaut/other kitchenauts
-Remixes of existing songs are allowed as well.
-The song needs to have the same lyrics as the original (small changes allowed).
-Participants must ask permission to the writer of the original song (plz use the PM system of our software platform), this is really important. Please only cover a song when you have that permission. So go ahead and start lobby-ing!! Btw, if a participant is listed in the 2nd post and shared a list of available work to cover (like @Leonard Scaper and @Mar T. ) no PM is required.
-Participants are allowed to put their cover on SoundCloud, but then they MUST mention the original writer in the SoundCloud decription of the cover track using the '@' tag.
-Please add the text Cover Chllng 2018 to the subject title of your submission, so I can easily query the results and put together a nice list in the end. It's your responsibility your song is listed in the #2 post in this thread. Should I have missed your entry, (when it's not listed in the contributions list (#2 post)) drop me a PM BEFORE voting starts please. There's no way to correct when voting has already been started...  ;)

The rules:
-All provided links to entries should be working when voting starts as well. If we don't have a working link when voting starts, the song will be disqualified.
-Every participant MUST vote, and self-voting is not allowed. I'm programming the forum software to improve detecting violations. Our @DishWasher will help you when he's notified of violations. He's not a nice guy with all his negative karma...  ;)

Here's the discussion thread from the first edition (2016): https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/18/the-kitchen-cover-competition-2016-is-closed/1930/
The amazing results (and ranking): https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/18/the-kitchen-cover-competition-2016-results/2198/

Here's the thread from the second edition (2017): https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/challenges/18/the-kitchen-cover-competition-2nd-edition-almost-closing/3082/
The amazing results (and ranking): https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/challenges/18/the-2nd-kitchen-cover-competition-voting-thread-the-results/3308/

Wanna join? :
So now who's in? Please let us know, we'll reserve the next post to collect the names of the participants. I'll collect your data in the second post of this thread. Don't be shy, this will be big fun! Also: when you'd like to be covered: let us know (by replying in this thread) as well. Plz be specific which songs are allowed to be covered, we'll add a link to your available-for-covering work in the 2nd post!!

Of course, as always, the winning top-5 of songs will be shared on the kitchen SoundCloud page ( https://soundcloud.com/songwriter-in-the-kitchen ) and shared on the Kitchen Wall of Fame here: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/challenges/18/kitchen-wall-of-fame/2260/msg24354#msg24354

I hope we'll make this the biggest kitchen challenge ever! Spread the word, offer your songs and/or start covering, and have fun!!

Cheers!
:mart:

 I'm up for giving this a go, even though I haven't quite got my head round it yet!
 So were essentially singing someone else's song?
 do we keep the music and the lyrics the same?
 is it just to get everyone to listen to everyone else's back catalog?
 I thought the ethos here was "and all we want to do is encourage us all to write new songs"!
 I'm not sure I quite get it!!!
 do we request the stems (the recorded instrument tracks) from someone else
 or try and re-create it or are we writing a "new" music track and singing someone else's lyrics over the top?
 
 You can include me, whatever it is, (even if it's Kitchen Karaoke!) :-)
 and if anyone wants to use the stems to any of my tracks , let me know...
 (my stuff is here https://soundcloud.com/dakoda-sada)

@Dakoda ....I was skeptical at first as well during the last edition of this challenge as I don't do covers ever. But I found this to be a very good exercise in creativity as I was able to make the song my own while still using both the original music and lyrics.

Glad you are in.

Hey @Dakoda , great to read that you're joining despite your feelings/thoughts!
Our intentions are to encourage everybody to be creative with music and the Cover concept is one of the concepts that was really succesful last years. We've heard amazing interpretations of creations of others.

'is it just to get everyone to listen to everyone else's back catalog?'
If so, would that be a problem? We have a lot of fantastic material being posted almost daily. A lot of material that's not discovered by 10% of our members..

The idea is to pick a song of a fellow-kitchener and recreate it. Everything is allowed. Reusing stems, or just recreating everything from scratch. Although it's not about creating a new song (we have enough challenges each year to encourage that aspect), this one is about searching for another perspective based on a fellow kitchener's song. To be honest, I'm still amazed by the results of the first and second editions.

Good to hear you're giving this one a try!

yes i am in! @Mar T.  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: you have a song called angel of Amsterdam ...that i really would like to try to get my hands on... ;D ;D ;D
 

Of course @Dutchbeat ! I'll send you the stems!

I am SUPER pleased to announce that I have received permission from @Zedd to cover her amazing song, "Master Of Perfection".

Cheers!
