    I'll play.

    Back in the 80's I entered a regional songwriting contest. I was really proud of the tune I entered, thought it might have a chance, and got very excited when I was told it was in the top three finalists in the rock category. I was invited to the awards ceremony where "celebrity" judges would make the final decisions while I sat on stage at a table with the other finalists. As you can probably guess, my masterpiece didn't win. Instead, a really poorly written, badly sung song full of cliche'd lyrics did - in MY opinion of course!

    You might guess that I'm about to link you to THAT song but that would be less interesting. Instead, I'm going to link you to the song I wrote, played, and recorded for next year's contest which was INTENTIONALLY terrible, similar in nature to the song that beat mine the year before, similarly filled with trite, cliche lyrics, harmony screaming before the solo, etc. because that's just how bad a sport I was. I told my friends that THIS piece of crap must be exactly what the contest committee likes given the results last year.

    Guess what, it won. Without further ado, here is "Sharon."

    P.S. Joke was on me, though. First prize was a bunch of hours of recording time at my competitor's studio in town.

      Hey that's pretty good, Terry! Contains every cliché in the book, but still...

      I'm still waiting for someone to post something as sonically offensive as my song
