WoW, what a banner!!!
Itís a beauty!!!
He/she who doesnít feel inspired by your thingy, doesnít have a heart.

On the other hand (thereís a fist - we used to say in times of punk), if there are only five contestants, I am in the top 5!,!
Yippee. Let the trumpets play, wave the flag. I am very content with number 5.

So hush....., donít wake them, please.
Kind regards, Gus

I have a nice positive song underway. Tried singing it into my recorder. Sound miserable!!!

It is just how I am made, I guess.  :-[

I might have to wait for the Positive Song Sung By Miserable Bloke Contest to come around!  It might! :o :o ;D
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

I am really tempted but I want to be sure I could complete something before I fully commit. Having a think about it.

ha! I know exactly what you mean @MichaelA "Write an extremely positive song" , it's like they don't want me to enter! ha! :-)
I'm definitely up for the "Positive Song Sung By Miserable Bloke Contest" if that materialises :-)

  You can put my name on the list please, for the "extremely positive song" competition.
  I figure if I tickle myself over the weekend for 48hours straight , I'll have laughed so much the singing will just have to be upbeat and happy....
 
  My plan is
  "extemely" happy upbeat dance synths
  including "moderately" positive lyrics
  accompanied by the usual droning semi-downbeat singing
  (I can always make the singing sound happier by turning the autotune upto 12) only joking :-)

Grinning at that. Glad you are in.

I have finally started mine. This is a difficult task as I generally write more introspective songs about change and the ever complex challenges of living as a human being.  ;)

I'll have to still sneak some of that in but I shall distract everyone from that with the title......"Invincible".

 :) :) :) :) :)

  I see what you did there, maximizing your chances of extreme positivity
  by starting of with a supremely positive title!
  I like your thinking,
  I'm going to call mine "dreaming of the 80's" possibly :-)
  at least I'll be starting from a nice, pink and fluffy safe place :-)
good luck!
Dakoda.

Hey @Dakoda! Glad you're entering. At least mine will be the second most miserable song in the competition now! Actually you should re-do that infectious Cam Girl/Fan Boy one of yours, except cut out all the insults, ha ha!

And hello @Leonard Scaper. I like your fighting talk song title, 'Invincible'. It won't work if he dies in the end though, just a bit of advice there!  ;D
