Peeeeeep... eh... cough... cough.. hiccup :mhm:

Hi All!! (all... all... all..)
The 'Write a bizarre love song with a twist,in a genre that you've never tried before' ('WALSWATIAGTYNTB', to briefly abbreviate it  ;D ;D) has finished!! It was fascinating to hear all excellent entries and I'm very proud of the quality of all tracks. Lots of us stepped out of their comfort zone and took a risk. And it all added to learning how to improve as a songwriter/to experience the power of collaborating. We're all getting better and better as individuals and as a community. The fun and interaction is increasing and the kitchen activity has been insane for 3 days in a row!  Thanks all for being part of this fantastic community!

I've (or will soon) lock(ed) the corresponding WALSWATIAGTYNTB discussion thread (https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/the-love-song-with-a-kitchen-twist-competition/msg26297/?topicseen#msg26297), let's continue the conversation in this thread.

So who should be the winner of the 'Love Song with a Twist' comp?
Please spread your given 20 points over the options of your choice with the max of 4 points per option!
When voting please take into account that the assignment was to implement a 'twist' and the song should be in another then the competitors usual genre.
I know it's not necessary to mention that voting for your own track disqualifies you from this competition. That's why I don't mention that and certainly not in bold.  ;) ;)

Here's the detailed info about each entry:

I intended to spend the time I had last night to give each and every one of these songs a fair listen, bringing as little prejudice as possible into my assessment, using the same speakers (well, headphones) and in one sitting, to make as impartial a decision as possible... 8)

Then the phone rang.  :o

Then my neighbour came round (and was talkative).  ::)

Then the phone rang again. :(

By which point, I said sod it and played Playstation until my wife came home.  >:(
