Round 2 Everyone!

Welcome back to the 'The Art of Music' contest! Music itself has many forms and genres all having their own unique flavors. Being a musician is an art, regardless what instrument you play or device you use to modify or create musical pieces with. The point of this contest is to encompass ALL of it. Following in the footsteps of my 'KillerPix Contest', each week, you will be given a theme.

The Theme

Last week, @enginewitty was all into some Jazz, and even won the 6th #badkaraoke Contest. Browsing through some of the entries for number seven of @simgirlandsnook's contest, he came across one submitted by @c0ff33a. It was New Kids on The Block! So, being #inspiredby that era, the theme this week will be the 80's! This ought to be good...


  • Each week, this post begins the new contest and you have until you see the 'Contestants' post on the following Wednesday to get your entry in.
  • The 1st tag for your submission post must be #artofmusic.
  • This submission thread must be upvoted (if you would like more competition, please resteem it).
  • Your video or track of yourself performing MUST be in the comments of THIS post (so you can get the popularity vote), or at least a link to your Steemit post entry.

I vote for this one. Is this how I vote?

OK, this got a little weird on me, but here is my entry! My post:https://steemit.com/dsound/@fishyculture/20180616t180738422z-money-for-nothing

And my dsound link, first time I have used it and I am not sure how to get it embedded. I will try to figure it out and fix it.

:( Youtube... it is what I can make work.

I love this song! A great one to bring back. You make some great points in here: "we can not learn from sanitized versions of history." And "Truth may be messy..." OMG is that ever freaking true! lol!!! Nice one. 💖

Here is my entry! Sweet Child of Mine by Guns & Roses: Ukulele Cover

My steemit post

Yeah, so this is amazing. Nice one!
