Half Hour Songwrite Challenge WEEKLY RECAP & VOTE! - Pick your favorite songwrite to feature in Sunday's song-of-the-week post 💛 2/22/19 - a Dtube exclusive!

in dtube •  last month


It's the Half Hour Songwrite Challenge WEEKLY RECAP! 💛

This week's selections:

  1. CHRYSALIS (prompt: WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER by @wakeupkitty)

  2. SEED (prompt: THE BOMARI by @owasco)

  3. BEYOND THE MOON (prompt: SACRIFICING VIRGINS by @wonderwop)

One of these entries will become a finished song. But which one? YOU decide, by voting for it! Simply comment the name and/or prompt of the song you'd like to see finished. The entry with the most votes will be outfitted with additional verses, choruses, bridges, codas, and other bells and whistles as needed, and arranged and recorded for Sunday's post. All voters will receive a 100% upvote from me as a thank you for weighing in :)

Remember: 1 vote here + 2 or more pick-a-prompt suggestions this week = 1 Steem Basic Income weekly participation prize :D

Thank you to all of the PICK-A-PROMPTers! So many amazing, creative, challenging, quirky, and occasionally laugh-out-loud wacky prompt ideas, I have as much fun reading prompts as I do writing songs :)

@dmilliz, @wonderwop, @iamjadeline, @mariannewest, @fitinfun, @roundbeargames, @kaelci, @cityofstars, @sugarfix, @wandrnrose7, @theureview, @marvyinnovation, @improv, @sunravelme, @mimismartypants, @girlbeforemirror, @praditya, @wakeupkitty, @alimamasstory, @owasco, @emergehealthier, @duanesworld,


HALF HOUR SONGWRITE CHALLENGE is an ongoing daily Dtube vlog. Each day I challenge myself to write a song in 30 minutes, using a one word prompt provided by the Pick-a-Prompt contest, by a random word generator (https://wordcounter.net/random-word-generator), or by @mariannewest's daily freewrite on the Steem blockchain.

*PICK-A-PROMPT is a contest that runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on Dtube. Winning prompts receive 3 Steem basic Income shares, and are used for the following day's Half Hour Songwrite Challenge! Pick-a-Prompters who participate 3 or more times in any given week (includes casting votes for the SUNDAY SONG OF THE WEEK) receive 1 SBI :)


Lyrics:


CHRYSALIS

Don't give up
Monsters are everywhere
But they can't hurt you
If you don't care about them
Don't care about them

Scared?
Me too
Where to run?
What to do?
But they can't hurt you
If you can live without them
So live without them

'Cause there is no escape from this
Death is but a chrysalis
And every grave a cradle
Every grave a cradle

Oh you don't have to live with this
Death is but a chrysalis
Let them die if they are able
Die if they are able

And run
Run
Not from
But to the one
That you want to become
You want to become

Run
Run
Not from
But to the one
That you want to become
You want to become

Go on
Run


SEED

I am your pain
I am your broken thing
Let me lie here in the dirt
Come back for me in spring

You'll find me grown
Into something new
Something bearing
Gifts for you
To use
Until
They break

So plant me
In a corner
Of your garden
In winter
I promise to
Come back to you
If you water me with your tears

Oh plant me
In a corner
Of your garden
In winter
I promise to
Come back to you
If you water me with your tears


BEYOND THE MOON

She's got the strangest eyes
I've ever seen
Always watching something
No one else can see

Blind to the dark
Likewise the light
Staring at what
Lies behind

This life
This life
Is over too soon
And I want to fly
With you
Beyond the moon

Lol no, I already have a day job. I work construction 5 days/week. I do the vlog after work and on weekends. Housing is scarce in our little town and our current (temporary) living situation is quickly losing its charm. We are looking for a new place with my gf, who has moved in with us. Once settled into our new place, the vlog will be retooled and possibly rebranded, with a dedicated steemit channel and mirrored on a dedicated YouTube channel. YouTube viewers will be able to see the videos but unable to participate in contests or vote for the Sunday Song of the Week. We'll have better recording and video equipment, and possibly guest appearances. And also (hopefully relatively quickly) will begin raising money to record a CD with songs from the HHSC episodes.

The songs are cool... I was wondering if you formulated them yourself

Hi @chrisbarth, thank you! Yes, I did. Usually each week I start 3 songs, and at the end of the week I ask people which they would like to see finished. The Half Hour Songwrite Challenge is on hold for a while due to life events, but we'll be back soon with more contests and more song writing. Nice to meet you and thanks for tuning in!
