Hi everybody here's the assignment for the first competition of 2018, the so called 'Write an extremely positive song' competition - Please join!!

The competition will run from now until halfway march (see below) or close earlier when all entries are in.

The assignment is simple:
-Write an extremely positive song.
-Don't use the words 'like' and 'love'.


A few rules:
-We organise these competitions to encourage songwriting. So please only post results that were created between now and the end of the year.
-When you finish your result please post it in in a NEW Songs for Review thread (NOT in this thread) and add '- Positive Song Comp' at the right of the song title to the subject. Please leave a comment in this comp thread with a link to your 'Songs for review' post, that makes it easy for me to collect the results...
-We will not vote for our own submission when voting is opened.
-All contestants need to vote (so we cancel out the chance a contestant benefits him-/herself from NOT voting).

This time we'll only announce the top-5 winners, the rest of the results list will remain hidden. Contestants can ask our staff how they scored, if they're interested.

In the mean time, of course we would like to know who's going to take part in this competition, we expect as least 15 contestants! Let us know! Leave us a reply so we can build a contestant list in the second (reserved) post..

Cheers! :bloodymarti:
:mart:


Oh, the deadline.. The deadline will be the 15th of March:


I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

@Mar T.
Yes, please. I’d like to enter.
This is  the first time I enter into a contest.
And as an extra: the very first time for a contest with a SF (as in science fiction) character.
That alone is an insanely positive thing. The deadline on the 15th of March. And the song to be written before the end of the year.
And I thought that I was the eccentric one!

Thank you for organizing this Mar T.
Kind regards, Gus

@Vince
No you don’t!!!
Could be that this is not an invitation; this is an ‘invitation’. Which is a different ball game altogether!!
Better start working on your staying power and your whotsit. If you want to stand a chance at all.
Is this a warning? Bet your sweet a** it is!!!

Kind regards, Gus


Okay @LePlongeur   I won't allow myself to get "psyched out"   ::e-guitar3::

@Vince
Great! Never entered into a competition before, but now that I have, I want to have as much fun as possible. And already I’m thrilled that you’ll be in that competition too.
@Dutchbeat
You deserve to win. And I wouldn’t mind being last. As long as the entries are great, I wouldn’t.
In the meantime, the list is long enough. Full of people who won’t back off for headwind. So your song better be good. Smiley  :blackgrin:
A smiley who desperately needs a dentist. Talking about creativity!
Kind regards, Gus
