Hi Everybody,

Happy New Year!!! I hope everybody enjoyed that party-ing last night!

Here's the voting thread for the so called 'Travel Song' AND/OR 'Retro Rework' competition! (See discussion thread: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/18/the-travel-song-andor-retro-rework-competition-please-join/3745/)

The assignment was:

By democratic voting two different assignments ended up with the same amout of support. We have decided we're going to do both. You can either choose the first or the second assignment OR combine them!

1. Retro Rework. Dig out one of your old songs and republish it, or record it again how you used to do it. Then create a 2017 rework of it and publish that for comparison. Most people's style and technique moves on, often improves, as they keep writing. But sometimes we have old nuggets of lost gold in our song-writing attics that if rewritten now could be made to shine! ( @MichaelA 's idea )
AND/OR
2. Create a traveling song ( @Leonard Scaper 's idea)

For both assignments the following rules were added:
-We organise these competitions to encourage songwriting. So please only post results that were created when/while the competition was running.
-This is one competition (although we have 2 assignments).. So there will only be 1 voting thread. All entries will be listed there, no matter which of both assignments they were executing.

Rules for voting (please read them VERY carefully as well):
-We will not vote for our own submission when voting is opened. Voting for self results in disqualification from the competition.
-All contestants must vote (so we cancel out the chance a contestant benefits him-/herself from NOT voting). Other kitcheners: please listen and vote as well, that's really helpful!

Yes my votes are in. Well done on the strong level of competition everybody! Definitely some there that I will be revisiting in the early part of this fine New Year!  ::thumb::
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'd be glad to... how do I go about that?


It's already up on my own SC account if that helps: https://soundcloud.com/tkmajor/wholl-stop-lorraine-december-2017


[I had used Archive.org links earlier because the sound quality is potentially much better than SC's 128 kbps streams. And because SC just annoys the living stink out of me.]


PS -- What's the deadline for voting?
