This is a forum where you can find all the contests that we run in the Muse. In the past these were run in different forums but now we are gathering them all together in one place to make them easier for you to find.

Each contest is run by the moderators from different forums, so you will find song contests from the Lyrics and forum moderators, lyric contests from the Lyrics forums moderators, and so on. The moderators will post the results and you can add your congratulations for the winners (or accept the congratulations of others).

Read the rules for each contest carefully, they differ for each contest. Don't forget you can judge contests as well as enter them.

Meant to have the thread open earlier, but have been getting called into work quite a bit and it's slipped my mind.

May 1+1 Song Competition

Click HERE for contest rules.

The philosophy of the 1+1 comp is that it is something someone could perform at an open mic night. Typically it would be one guitar, one voice. Simple effects may be used but bear in mind the open mic idea of one voice and one live instrument and you won't go far wrong.

You are not allowed to enter your song if you have paid for the production, mixing, mastering, writing or performance of either the Lyric or Music. For no part of your song can you have paid anyone money.

JELLY KNEEZ

When I aim to pleaze
She calls it jelly kneez
When we're on the floor
And she wants it some more
Oh she says don't tease
I want some jelly kneez

That's when she tells me she loves me so
Don't ever leave me, don't let me go
J jjjj jelly kneez
J jjjj jelly knee e eez

When we're turned around
And we're hitting the ground
Yeah it feels so right
That we'll go all night
When she gets what she needs
She calls it jelly kneez

That's when she tells me she loves me so
Don't ever leave me, don't let me go
J jjjj jelly kneez
J jjjj jelly knee e eez

Be on a slippery ride
When I open her wide
Oh yeah one more kick
It just takes a lick
Oh she'll beg me pleaze
I want some jelly kneez

That's when she tells me she loves me so
Don't ever leave me, don't let me go
J jjjj jelly kneez
J jjjj jelly knee e eez

Old Preacher sais son don't bet your soul

I Just ask Sister Sally she say he hung the moon

Old Preacher sais son don't bet your soul

Old Preacher sais son don't bet your soul

I wonder what he'd say if he knew what I know..

Link to Heart Full of Stones on SoundClick



Heart Full of Stones
© 2010



I have a token of each memory we made
little reminders so that nothing ever fades
a pebble gathered to remember precious times
holding each moment we shared inside


Now the velvet purse that kept them safe
These tiny symbols of our loving days
cannot hold your sad attempts in its space
they're a heavy pile in my hearts place


(chorus)
Your eyes are empty when they look at me
No more pebbles are picked up at my feet
I'm left to walk this path alone
and all that I have
is a heart full of stones
a heart full of stones


I need to travel down a road that's new
so I can replace these reminders of you
I'll kick up the dust and pick a flower instead
each petal for a tear that I will never shed


(chorus)
Your eyes are empty when they look at me
No more pebbles are picked up at my feet
I'm left to walk this path alone
and all that I have
is a heart full of stones
a heart full of stones


Just when you think my heart has a little room
you'll find that it's all filled up with blooms
I threw those stones back down on the ground
there are lots of flowers if you look around


(chorus)
Your eyes are empty when they look at me
No more pebbles are picked up at my feet
I'm not afraid to walk this path alone
my hearts flowers
now have grown
I have grown

I have tokens of each memory I've made.

Here's my entry for May's 1+1 song competition:

Still Madly in Love
music and lyrics by shawn poon
LInk here:
http://www.soundclic...&songID=9008356

Lyrics:

The rain falls
And time stood still
And I'm still thinking about you
Though autumn breezes blow
To tell me I'm still in love
Still madly in love with you

Your beautiful eyes and warm smile
The longer I gaze, the more I'm amazed at your charms
But it's in the inward glow, the passion flows
And you used to tell me how we'd use to dream
We'd travel oceans
and scour the seas
we'd ride on wings and fly forever through the breeze
And in God's eyes we could be strong
Thought we could sing this endless song
Of love through the rain and storm

But now it seems all that's left is shattered dreams
And wishing somehow that yesterday could be now
Still kidding myself that tomorrow would be better than before
I'm still madly in love
Still madly in love with you

Inside & Outside
by David Butler (lyD)

You were a time machine
One day you'll know what I mean
And I was thrown by the look in your eye

The look of an angel
But beauty betrays you
I needed to know you inside

But inside and outside you looked just the same
I fell like a fool when you called out my name
Nothing would change you
And nothing would take you away

Then when you told me
How you longed to hold me
You took me back to a sad memory

A beautiful lady
One who betrayed me
But I know you'd never do that to me

'Cause inside and outside you look just the same
I fell like a fool when you called out my name
Nothing would change you
And nothing would take you away

You grew like an ivy surrounding my heart
You crept up behind me and tore me apart
But I'd never change you
And please don't go away

And I know as the years pass us by
You'll give me something that time can't disguise

Inside and outside...

this is me by go-round

stream or download for free!

i go up but everyone is down
by the time i decend no one is around
i'm so tired of being you
putting on my happy face and jumping cause i'm told to

i don't care anymore
this is me
i'm tried of wondering what you think
i'm a freak

everyday the television tells us what we should believe
how to dress up like a doll and how to get your warhol
am i too pale, too skinny or just a little dumb
please label me which one we're anxiously awaiting

i don't care anymore
this is me
i'm tired of wondering what you think
i'm a freak
why does something have to be wrong if i don't speak
aparently being shy means i'm a freak
but i'm unique
this is me

I was hoping to have a new one to put into this, but it's clear I won't have time to record it. This will have to do (though I wouldn't mind re-doing this one too!)

So Special

Words/Music: Alistair Sutherland (Alistair S)

She don't need to believe every word he tells her
She can feel that he's real and he says what he means
Anyone can see
She believes that he's so
Special
She don't try to deny he's a little bit crazy
She don't try to deny that she may be too
(But) She's nobody's fool
Loving someone who's so
Special

Ch.
I saw her driving in her car on Friday
She smiled and blew a kiss for me
She'd still be mine if I had my way
And we'd be, so
Special

2.
I still have her picture in my pocket
It's right here in the pocket of my jeans
A fading souvenir
From (a time) when I was nearly
Special
Had a dream that I could make the big-time
In the days when she believed in me
Took me years to see
I would never be
Special

Ch.
I saw her driving in her car on Friday
She smiled and blew a kiss for me
She'd still be mine if I had my way
And we'd be, so
Special

Kim,

This is correct, except that in this particular contest you are supposed to give my song a 9, and every other song a 5.

Thanks for your cooperation :)

In Canada, where in some places it's warmer than Climax, North Carolina, it would be called a cheque!

No, he's just being realistic and leaving room SIB's and my entry at the top. He's knows that Kim will need to save her 10 for us.

I have been sweating away at exam revision, but I now have a day off so I'll get right on it. Or just borrow Neal's idea and award straight 5s from me averaging out at 9 for my own mark.

Hey everybody, sorry this contest doesn't have all the bells and whistles as usual like the Soundclick station (though I don't like doing them when half the contestants aren't on SC, feel like it can jumble up people's scores) and Tams sent me a message yesterday that reminded me I'd forgotten to reply to the votes for confirmation (though I think you can see in the new system when the other person reads your message?)

Basically, my back has gone out pretty badly again (old injury...wish it was a cool story like high school football or saving nuns from a burning church but it's just a lame one... bad lazy form working out at the gym) so I can't really sit at the computer for long spells. Worst of all my lawn is getting overgrown as this was the week I was going to catch up on all my yardwork, been busy at work. I like the look of cottage country style, overgrown long grass but I found out last year, the city of Toronto doesn't :blink:

Ahhh, just get a goat, cow or sheep, then you don't have to worry about the lawn, they have animals in Canada...right? :lol:

Oh, and FYI to everyone, I wasn't policing Mark, I just wanted to make sure I didn't get kicked out of the contest especially since Neal and Don are working so hard on getting me a lot of scores of 5!!!!!

Now, look here Simon, I know you kiwis have trouble with your vowels, but you can't let it slip into your spelling as well.

That should be "chick" and "meal", surely? And shouldn't it be "the meal is in the chick". Meal precedes male in this instance.

Just checking. Not Czech, chick! Check?

Since the voting is over, I feel OK saying this now. In a good group of songs, there was only one winner for me and that was Daddio with "Her Quintessential Life". What a great song! For me, the guitar could be toned down a little in the mix, but this one surely has legs! If it doesn't win, I'll eat my hat :)

I won't list every song (but well done, people!). However, I'd also like to give special mention to Go-round's "This Is Me". Atlanta obviously has a lot of talent!

Personally, I thought Neal's song was tops. It was very strong.

I thought Alistairs song this month was stunning, so it got my vote - but, that said I thought your song was really excellent, Soddybottoms.

Looks like every song has been mentioned by someone - Should be a close scoring competition!

I thought Daddio's was tops and Go-Round's song place very high for me.

Daddio/Jonie followed by Neal for me, but a strong set of songs all round. And maybe DIY scoring is the way to go in future :D

While we're waiting.....

I wish I could remember exactly how I scored everyone. I usually rely on having my scores PM'd back to me. I think I had Alistair's, Neal's and go-round's on top but to be honest, I struggled with the scoring and can't remember exactly how it all ended up when the dust finally settled.

Congrats Daddio, Jonie and Neal - that was how I had my top two, they're both excellent songs but Her Quintessential Life edged it for me. What a chorus that is.

Otherwise I thought it was a strong contest. Soddy's was possibly the best I've heard from him, So Special is good going on great (I still think it's lacking some of the passion of the video version!), Shawn's song had some wonderful moments. I enjoyed listening to every entry.

As for my song, it's clearly not written as a 1+1 and once my exams are over I'll put together a fuller, more upbeat version. Thanks to the one kind person who disagreed :D

Thanks Mark, hope you're still walking!
