  • BLOCKBUSTER CHALLENGE: APRIL 2012

    Hello one and all.

    These seem to have become bi-monthly of late , but people seem full of ideas right now. Let me know if you'd rather it was monthly again.

    Anyway.

    This months challenge:

    Time restriction - You have 1min 30 (max but im not gonna pick up on a few secs over or whatever) as the duration of your song

    Its up to you if you'd like to do verse/chorus structure of just keep it simple.

    Try not to take a full song and just chop the end off it - see if you can say everything you want to say in the allotted time

    Good luck musicians

    One Minute Thirty Seconds

    V
    Slipped open my vibrating phone
    You know I like to stay connected
    Source Restricted, Unknown
    Not entirely unexpected
    But in the back of my mind
    This had the ring like the end of an era
    Felt my composure unwind and
    All at once I knew

                Really? Bee's songs seem that long to you?

                I always felt like they floated by so quickly... You know, timeless.

                  I'm only reacting to how he's always self conscience of their length. They don't seem long to me either. Those ^ other guys are mean. Watch out for that bus!

                  I really don't think Justin's songs are long at all. They're Pink Floydesque and perfect at their present length.

                      In all seriousness, I started working on one last night and... well... it's a challenge.

                        ha - was only joking.... i think it was more that he likes his slow songs rather than them "feeling" too long

                          I like this idea. We're all in a hurry nowadays so get to the point, right? Plus I haven't tried one of the challenges lately.

                          So here's what I've got so far:

                          If you buy one
                          And get the second for free
                          If I grab me a third
                          Will they hand some money back to me
                          I'd just like to see

                          And if I tell you once
                          That I love you so
                          If I tell you twice
                          Would you pack your things and leave
                          For Albany

                          Oh try to help me understand
                          What makes a girl
                          Love a man like me
                          I need to see


                          I may need a catchy refrain to stretch this to 90 seconds but I'll try to post a video soon.

                              I posted my response "Three." here.

                              Thank you stick for doing this challenge thing. I'm not exactly sure why, but I find it a very enjoyable exercise.
