**** Now scoring - see post #20 for results ****

*************************************************************

Here is schedule for the 6 Open Format song contests in 2012. Open Format means that there are no arrangement/production restrictions. (note that these comps will be running on alternate months with the 1+1 competitions)

The contests will be run for approximately 10 days (6 for entering, 4 for scoring) - these dates are provisional and will depend on the mod running it.

Feb: 6 - 10 (enter) 11 – 14 (scorecards)
Apr: 9 - 13 (enter) 14 - 17 (scorecards)
Jun: 11 - 15 (enter) 16 - 19 (scorecards)
Aug: 6 - 10 (enter) 11 - 14 (scorecards)
Oct: 8 - 12 (enter) 13 - 16 (scorecards)
Dec: 3 - 7 10 - 14 (enter) 8 - 11 15 - 18(scorecards)

*note, all contests will be run from the Contests Forum - all 'live' comps are pinned.

The top two songs from each Open Format competition will be posted in this thread (1+1 comps have their own thread) in preparation for their Year End Final. (Tied songs will also go through).

All contests will use the 1 to 10 scoring method. You are encouraged to grade the songs however you like, just bear in mind that 10 is the highest mark you can award and 1 is the lowest. Only one 10 and one 9 may be awarded.

The song that is entered into a Monthly Competition must be the same recording with no changes made for the Final Competition.

The Year End Song Comps are for active musers only, so if a writer has not been present on the board since the start of November 2012 the moderator has the right to disqualify an entry

Someone may choose not have their song move on to the final competition if they wish. This might be an option for someone who has more than one song in the final.

For the Open Format comps the 12 qualifying songs from the 6 contests will compete in the Open Format year end final.

For more information on the contests, scoring etc. see the Song Contest Rules.

Cheers

Nige :)/>/>/>/>/>

“All By Myself”
by Tom Tognaci

http://soundclick.co...cfm?id=10203714

I deal with the loneliness
Like combing fresh cut hair
I convince myself that I’m alright
I can deal with the solitude
And the echo from upstairs
Now that the ghost is gone, I’m alright

I’d rather be alone and by myself
Than to be alone, while being with someone else
All by myself
Stowed way up high on some dusty shelf
All by myself
Just me, an island, unto itself

Some nights I reminisce
Back and forth in this old chair
Is it worth the lament?….is it really fair?
Black and blue is the emptiness
With a woman who can’t care
One thing that stands out, now, completely clear

I’d rather be alone and by myself
Than to be alone, while being with someone else
All by myself
Stowed way up high on some dusty shelf
All by myself
Just me, an island, unto itself

Some nights I reminisce
Back and forth in this old chair
Is it worth the lament?….is it really fair?
All I need is my poetry
And the music that I play
To stretch these untamed wings and fly away
"I Know The Truth By My Struggle Against It"

Golden Pie

All music/lyrics Steve Ison

I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up
I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up
And when that flame is growing high
Will bake me a Golden Pie
I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up....

I'll shift those stones that block my stream to let it flow on
I'll shift those stones that block my stream to let it flow on
And when the water meets the sea
then i'll be the real me
I'll shift those stones that block my stream to let it flow on...

I'll use my strength to mine the gold thats held in the rock
I'll use my strength to mine the gold thats held in the rock
And when i strike upon that seam
i'll set free a shining dream
I'll use my strength to mine the gold thats held in the rock....


I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up
Yeh I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up
And when that flame is growing high
Will bake me a Golden Pie
I'll feed my fire with love and joy to let it go up....

Love's gonna bake me a Golden Pie
Love's gonna bake me a Golden Pie
Love's gonna bake me a Golden Pie...Yeh

Love's Dangerous

Steve Ison (Music) Steve April/Steve Ison (Lyrics)


Lookin' for the perfect stranger for your fantasy ?
Are you feelin' the obsession for a touch of kinky D?
if you like extremes,wanna take it to the limit
Like smokin' in bed your house burns down in minutes.

If you want the Hilton sisters on your quayside boat,
Knight in white satin the virgin's in the moat.
Screaming about her father,
stands with axes in your dreams..
One to chop off your head,
the other for your seams.

Love's dangerous,Love's Dangerous..
It lures you like a bait yeh Love is dangerous...
Love's Dangerous,Love's Dangerous..
and you found out too late that Love is dangerous..

Las Vegas Goddess lures you while her mans away
Showers you with roses,but you're the one to pay ..
You wake up in a cold sweat surrounded by the sharks
Screamin' for air and shooting in the dark..

Lalalala hey etc

Love's dangerous,Love's Dangerous..
It lures you like a bait yeh Love is dangerous...
Love's Dangerous,Love's Dangerous..
and you found out too late that Love is dangerous..

Fly, Fly, Fly

Music & Vocals: Tony Nybeek/Lyrics: Jonie Hajduk © 2012

Fly, Fly, Fly

You got an ugly streak in you
And a vicious bite
Nothing that I say or do
Ever suits you right
You hate my job, my friends, my plans
You can't stand the man I am
Used to tear me up
When I gave a damn

I'm gonna fly, fly, fly
Watch me disappear
I'm gonna fly, fly, fly
Fly away from here
Away from here

Sweatin' 'bout your precious stuff
Well don't worry none
I don't need reminding of
How you ain't much fun
Take a chill on the front porch swing
I won't be taking anything
But a breath of air
And a pair of wings

I'm gonna fly, fly, fly
Watch me disappear
I'm gonna fly, fly, fly
Fly away from here
Away from here
We have now sunk to a depth at which re-statement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.
George Orwell

The greatest tragedy in mankind's entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion.

Me and Elly
©Jonie Hajduk/Lyrics Tony Nybeek/Music and Vocals

Me and Elly

Elly was the bright one, everyone agreed
No one ever doubted, Elly would succeed
Day she drove to college, how were we to know
Places life would take her and just how far she'd go

Call came in December, middle of the night
Elly overdosing, no, that can't be right
Prelude to a nightmare that never seems to end
Where Elly's lost in alleyways, but I remember when

Me and Elly climbed up trees
Rode our bikes with banged up knees
Told each other secrets in our bedroom late at night
Elly knows I love her
She loves me too
Elly, what am I supposed to do?

Daddy took to drinking, said he blamed himself
Mama took my sister off the picture shelf
Me, I keep believing she'll wind up at my door
Elly, if you're out there, I've never loved you more

Me and Elly climbed up trees
Rode our bikes with banged up knees
Told each other secrets in our bedroom late at night
Elly knows I love her
She loves me too
Elly, what am I supposed to do?

Life is always running
Towards us, in the end
Surprising us the way it did back when

Me and Elly climbed up trees
Rode our bikes with banged up knees
Told each other secrets in our bedroom late at night
Elly knows I love her
She loves me too
Elly, what am I supposed to do?
We have now sunk to a depth at which re-statement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.

Fingerprints

http://soundclick.co...cfm?id=11706719

Verse 1
Her smile is all you want to see
As I wonder each time that you leave
Tonight are you gonna make
Those same excuses you're working late

Rise
You think that I don't know that

Chorus
She has your fingerprints, your fingerprints
It's me who's the fool believing you
I know she kisses you deep in the night
Taking the last part of you that was mine
She has you fingerprints

Verse 2
Her touch is all you want to feel
You can't hide--those feelings are real
She won't love you like I did but
Leave you nothing--it's a fact you'll admit

Rise
I should let the whole world know

Chorus
She has your fingerprints, your fingerprints
It's me who's the fool believing you
I know she kisses you deep in the night
Taking the last part of you that was mine
She has you fingerprints

Bridge
Like a dandelion blowing around in the wind
I'll never hold you again

Solo

Chorus
I know she kisses you deep in the night
Taking the last part of you that was mine
She has you fingerprints

The Wardens Wife

Steve Ison (Music) Steve April/Steve Ison (Lyrics)



I can hear them call my name
They're standing on the porch
Looking down that lonesome road tonight
But i'm kidnapped by a man
A trustee from the pen
He says he'll kill my daughters if i don't obey him

Run Highway Run
Roll River Roll
Take me back to my babies
Roll river roll
Run highway run
Back to my babies


My husbands walking round his Kansas Prison block
and my daughters are attending Sunday mass
But i'm on this chicken farm chained up to a bed
Watching him watch over me thru broken glass

Run Highway Run
Roll River Roll
Take me back to my babies
Roll river roll
Run highway run
Back to my babies


Highway 1 -Run run
To our little house in the sun
Every white lines a friend of mine
Let 'em run
Please let 'em run

He's walking me to church
His arms around my neck
Showing off his 'wife' to Ma and Pa
He smiles as they walk by
Then hisses in my ear
Don't forget that i know where your children are..

Run Highway Run
Roll River Roll
Take me back to my babies
Roll river roll
Run highway run
Back to my babies

Destination

All music/lyrics Steve Ison/Harper Stephens



I can feel the light of love flowing
See the colours in the falling rain
Like the magic of an english summer
Now you've come to me again..

On the street below the crowds are gathering
Try to find you amongst the big parade
I feel confused and turn around,
see you smiling so sweetly -
and then i know that its alright
My inhibitions fade

and there's multi-coloured musicmen
all searching for a sound
and there's children floating big balloons
high up above the ground
and i'm wondering should i stay back here
or go with them to the station
to catch a train that says
'For those who dream of liberation


Hey lets fly above this crowded city
See the sunlight on the fields so green
We'll make love beside a clear blue river
All we've gotta do is dream..

and there's multi-coloured musicmen
all searching for a sound
and there's children floating big balloons
high up above the ground
and i'm wondering should i stay back here
or go with them to the station
to catch a train that says
'For those who dream of liberation

The Island

Alternative link http://www.soundclic...songID=12090434

Words, Music, Performance by Jason Kalman

Run to where the water meets a setting sun
I’ll meet you there and pray we’ll be as one
Cause there’s no way I’d ever leave you stranded here alone
Upon this rock that lives and calls the South Pacific home

A million miles away from home and somehow you are here
There is no place on earth I would not go to have you near
I’m trapped inside this love that runs so deep and keeps me blind
To know that you will leave me and this paradise behind

Run to me with arms so wide
And Love will keep my dreams alive
We made it through this life as friends
We’ll make it through rough times again

The city is awake at night and battered from this storm
The wind so strong and rain so hard the island will transform
And so our fate is bracing from the tide that’s rising fast
A flood of hope is racing that our love will somehow last

Run to me with arms so wide
And Love will keep my dreams alive
We made it through this life as friends
We’ll make it through rough times again
http://www.kalmanmus...

I have no idea where I'm going and it feels spectacular!

“Love Is A Hard, Hard Heart Ache”
by Tom Tognaci

http://soundclick.co...cfm?id=10159995

Love is a motion, where the spirit wants to go
Love is emotion, a blue sea of undertow
Love is a hard, hard heart ache
Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a fire that can make you feel alive
Love is a liar that can pierce you like a knife
Love is a hard, hard heart ache
Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is as free as the wind blows
As only Winter knows
If love is only for your body to make…
…Then love is a hard, hard heart ache
Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a starlight, which can steal you from the moon
Love is a midnights bastion, wailing like a loon
Love is a hard, hard heart ache
Love is a hard, hard heart ache

Love is a flower, waiting someday to unfold
Love is a power, in a flash it can explode
Love is a hard, hard heart ache
Love is a hard, hard heart ache
"I Know The Truth By My Struggle Against It"

FALL OF MAN

(SoundCloud link)

(Soundclick link)

Words, Music, Performance by Jason Kalman
Drums: Andy Hamburger

I traveled time
To where the Tigris and Euphrates bind
Past the armed Cherubim
And the beautiful Seraphim
At the tree of knowledge
Stands a girl

It’s the fall of Man
It’s the fall from Grace
If I stop Eve Now
Could I save our fate?
Fall of a man
It's the fall of man

Eve, I know it’s hard for you to understand
The role you play in the fall of man
I beg you please just put down the prize
And walk away from the serpent’s lies

It’s the fall of Man
It’s the fall from Grace
If I stop Eve Now
Could I save our fate?
Fall of a man
It's the fall of man

Eve she smiled at me and then she said
I want to know love
I want to feel the pain
I want to see my naked soul dancing in the rain
I watched as Eve she took the bite

And I saw her tears flow
As it echoes our life
And the world that we know
Through a selfless sacrifice

It’s the fall of Man
It’s the fall from Grace
If I stop Eve Now
Could I save our fate?
Fall of a man
It's the fall of man
