Hi everybody!!

Here's the voting thread for the so called 'Write an extremely positive song' Competition! (See discussion thread: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/18/the-write-an-extremely-positive-song-competition-please-join/3985).

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


The rules were:
-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...

PENALTY:
A few members will have a penalty, because for some enties there was some question about not properly complying to the rules. Some did bend the assignment a bit, some used pre-existing work and some were too late. The penalties will be that those entries will have a percentage subtracted from their score when voting closes and the results being calculated. @MichaelA and @Mark Luto found this creative solution, that will be implemented by our staff.
So please voters: just listen to the songs and only score how much you like a song, don't 'punish' nobody for not completely meeting the assignment goal and/or a rule. All entries are accepted by staff (and what a list!!) 

Read carefully, VOTING rules are:
-We will NOT vote for our own submission (Our software keeps track of that and this WILL disqualify you from the contest).
-All contestants MUST vote (so we cancel out the chance a contestant benefits him-/herself from NOT voting). Of course all other kitcheners are welcome (and encouraged!) to vote!


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.

thanks @Mar T.  - what splendid work!

Awesome, good luck everyone.  ::headphone::
We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;ó
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.


Nice job everyone! I really like listening to all the songs!!!!!

There are some strange complexities to this voting system IMO. Do we have to use all 34 points? I guess we do. That's a lot of points especially at 4 point tops.  :) I can give my favorite 4 points and then 10 others can get 3 .... but boy it's hard to rank this many excellent entries in this way. :)
I kind of wish I could give my favorite 8, then next 7, then next 6 ...and so on .....Oh well, I guess I'll adapt.

November Sound is based on the Mother, Father & Son musical trio of Melissa, Bill & Will. I'm the father so anything I post will have my wife singing and/or my son playing percussion.


I actually really liked the way it was set up. There were a couple I couldn't decide between being my favorite, and this way I didn't have to choose. Also I could give everyone a point (besides myself of course). The penalty thing also takes into account and solved everyones grievances, which was an excellent idea who ever thought that up. Really enjoyed the whole process, Kudos Kitchen Staff!   ::thumb::

@Bill from November Sound there's been times we all only voted for the winner.. Now there's a lot of spread in the evaluation and we know this voting system encourages everyone to listen real good...  ;)
I might be wrong of course.. but I believe this encourages listening on the one hand, and selecting a top 5 that consists of entries that are broadly accepted..


Voted  :)


when does voting finish? has 2020 at the minute haha @Mar T.
fly away and find my peace of mind...

I quite agree @Bill from November Sound .
Really had a hard time figuring out my 2 or maybe 3 favorites, only to find I could only dish out a max of 4 points per entry.
I know I mustnít grumble, but.....
At some other place I thanked the management and iím not taking back one word.
Hmmmmmmm......., no; not one.
Kind regards, Gus
