Hi everyone,

The 2nd Inspirational Input Competition (2017 edition) is closed, and this is the voting thread to discover who we think has won this competition. It was a fabulous competition once more, it was a pleasure to see all entries coming in. 6 entries fellows!! Great job everybody!
Link to the competition thread: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/18/the-2nd-inspirational-input-competition-running-closing-oct-13th/3361/

Submitting your vote is as simple as spreading your given 10 points over the options of your choice with the max of 3 points per option.

Attention:
1. You're only allowed to vote for entries in which you have taken NO part. Voting for your own track AND/OR cover of your own track is against the rules.
and
2. We expect every competitor to vote

So, watch out  8) 8) 8) 8): @DishWasher will find you (and clear your received votes), should this happen.


After each member's name I've included three letters (in the range A - K) that refer to the inspirational input that was supplied (lookup the letters in the second post) to write a song about. When voting please check that the entry has ingredients that link to at least one of the supplied inspirational input items (preferrably all 3 of them).

@Dutchbeat and @Mar T. will announce the top 5 live from the 2nd kitchen summit of 2017 (in the Belgium 'Ardennen') on sunday October 22th.

Inspirational input supplied by:

A. @Dutchbeat
Contextual info: 'My inspirational input is.... any aspect of the plane landing on the Hudson river thing, but in the form of a fun and silly, what happened afterwards, much later, video i just saw...'


B. @Leonard Scaper
Contextual info: 'I'll start.......I took this picture in northern Vermont, USA quite a few years ago'

(Click to enlarge..)

C. @MrBouzouki
'Here is mine. It's a photo from Sheffield City Centre around 16 years ago.
It was the demolishing of the old Town Hall extension (affectionately known as the 'eggbox') and it was a horrible bit of architecture.
The juxtaposition of the old 'Town Hall' on the left and the demolishing of the newer extension on the right might spark a bit of thinking for somebody.' 


(Click to enlarge..)

D. @iiviivix
Contextual info: 'I have been house-sitting an old castle and the internet comes and goes as it pleases for some reason. I think the castle is haunted. too many strange things happen.
Castelvecchio di Testona (but situated in Moncalieri) is 1500 years old, it belonged to the franks, then the romans, then Monks and now my girlfriends family, as well as 8 other families. It's googable if you wish to know more =) because it is the picture I am selecting for this competition =) '

(Click to enlarge..)

E. @Mar T.
Contextual info: 'I got a lot of storylines in my head when I saw this scene. I'm really curious how your storyline would sound in an original song!'

(Click to enlarge..)

F. @Rachel_D
Contextual info: 'I went to a local village feast this night and there were some dramatic fireworks, synchronised with music... and I took a short clip of it :) (What strikes me most is the fact that these very small villages (approx. 3000 residents) make these really big spectacles, which bring out the locals' immense determination (and pride) and the effort that they put into things that they are most passionate about)'

G. @DanJames 
Contextual info: 'My inspirational input is an extract from 'Too Many Names (Demasiado Nombres) by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda:'


H. @Jim
Contextual info: 'Here's a shot from the archives, I hope it creates some inspiration...it was taken in Montmartre in Paris outside a great bar/restaurant called Les Relais de la Butte, which happens to be opposite the atelier (flat) where Picasso lived for a while.  Musicians would come along and perform, and I thought the shot of the crowd was a "Parisian classic"...'


I. @MichaelA
Contextual info: 'Here is a pic I am offering up. It is by a photographer called Andre Govia who specialises in taking atmospheric shots of abandoned places around the world. He has a book on Amazon.
This pic is of an abandoned theme park which is about 20 miles from where I live. I love this pic, on so many levels, and am sure it will make great inspiration for a song! Good luck whoever gets it/picks it!'


J. @CrystalSuzy
Contextual info: 'He's a poem that well hopefully inspire someone or not ::Suzy:: '
'My pen is poised, what shall I write,
The mind is 'dark', it needs some light,
Some 'inspiration' would be enough
To trigger the fingers and do a rough
Transcript of thoughts which might be pleasing,
But somehow at present, I'm into squeezing
My brain, to think up a suitable start,
Why aren't I a person who's 'grey matter' is smart,
When out of the blue a sentence appears,
The brain reacts and the numbness clears,
To reveal a startling piece of Lit,
That suddenly becomes a Hit,
That would be great, but the chances are,
A million to one! Oh! Lets retire to the bar! '

K. @Bill from November Sound
Contextual info: 'Is this even remotely inspirational? I like it.'

My vote is in. Maybe you should just announce winner and runner up this time @Mar T. with just six entries? Well you can't really do a top 5, that would be mean for number 6!  ::) Especially if it is me!!! ;)

All very enjoyable, but a very diverse selection of styles on offer. Well done to all who entered.
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!

Ooooh it's all very close!! There's 2 songs in the lead (Both having more than 20% of the votes) and the other 4 songs are in the 10%-20% range.

I want to thank everybody who has voted so far and I hope we'll collect at least 10 more votes!! So everybody you're welcome to vote!

Keep them coming in, we'll close voting next sunday around 17:00 forum time and announce the winners live from the Belgium Ardennen ( @Dutchbeat and I will be there for our 2nd kitchen summit this year).

Cheers!!!

Cool, thanks Pete ( @MrBouzouki )! Still 2 songs clearly in the lead atm (and two songs with exactly the same score). So we need even more votes to seperate them out...

Here's the time left to vote:


Go, go, go kitcheners!!  ;) ;)
