Steemit Open Mic Week 80 - Record Your Performance And Win Steem - Sponsored By @pfunk And @luzcypher

in openmic •  2 months ago

Steemit Open Mic is an online, live music venue to give musicians a chance to share their music with the Steemit community and get their music heard. It is growing larger every week thanks to all of you.

I want to thank all the talented people that have made the Open Mic contest such a joy to host. It is a pleasure listening to everyone's music and getting to know you guys. Steemit is SO cool like that.

@pfunk has been sponsoring Steemit Open Mic since I first started it and I want to give a big thank you to him and all the people who support and take part in Steemit Open Mic.

NOTE TO SCAMMERS: I have closed most of the holes scammers have found to cheat the contest except for one. Now people are stealing valid entries from the current week and entering it as their own thinking that because the person in the video says the words Steemit Open Mic Week (current week number) that I will not notice it was already entered. This is the worst form of cheating possible and I have started flagging those caught doing this.

From now on, anyone entering Open Mic must say Steemit Open Mic Week Number (current week number) and their username to have a valid entry. This is to stop scammers from stealing your video and entering it as their own.

Steemit Open Mic Process

Keeping it short and sweet, here is the flow of considerations for the Steemit Open Mic contest:-

  • Need to promote community participation in the spirit of Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. Steemit Open Mic submissions in comments, community voting and reblogging are encouraged.

  • However, we need to avoid public vote abuse and keep a certain standard for Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. community voting as the first filter, before internal voting.
  • Another problem: late submissions are usually disadvantaged as they get less attention on the contest post.
  • So.. we've tried to mitigate such a problem by including unique votes of Steemit Open Mic submissions in their own blog posts.
  • IT IS CRUCIAL WHEN YOU RECORD YOUR VIDEO THAT YOU SAY "STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 80" AND YOUR USERNAME AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR VIDEO

  • We're looking for real live musical performances for this contest. Some people have posted old videos from YouTube and it's difficult to verify that it's really them performing. They will be disqualified from the contest.

  • If you want a chance to earn the prize, make a new video and say STEEMIT OPEN MIC Week 80 at the start of it.

.

How To Enter Steemit Open Mic Night

New Music Category Communities

Music Category communities are coming together on Steemit and if you're a music lover, please show support and join in the fun. Here are a few new places to find great music.

Suggestion: openmic must be the first tag to enter open mic, but adding other music-related tags (such as music, music-trail) may help your post get more attention and perhaps even get curated by those music curators.

If your song is an original song, add orginalmusic as your 2nd tag. This will help curators know it is an original song which currently pays a Steem bonus to you.

Thank you all for the participation!

"Steem Spam"
by @HappyMoneyMan

My 1st Open Mic With Guitar
Picture me embarrassed, but having fun.

https://steemit.com/openmic/@happymoneyman/steemit-open-mic-week-80-steem-spam-by-happy-money-man

Inspired by the @Steembirds
My submission for Steemit Open Mic Week 80

This beat and lyric structure came from Alex Clare - Too Close

Hey guys this is my steemit openmic week 80 competition.

This is an original track called "Without you" and goes out to all the people who have been abandoned in there life at some point.

Id also like to apologize to anyone who has felt my attitude hasn't been in the right place as i have deleted quite a few posts recently. Having asperges syndrome and adhd i am very sensitive and can be very defensive if i feel im being insulted in any way.

Thank you for all your support and much love to you all.

lryics

"So you gave me a life, but denied me the time to breathe
you just ran away and left me to stay in the rain

do you think its fair, do you feel i should care about you
why should i forgive, why would i relive your mistakes

and the time has moved on and im feeling so strong with you,
without you"

·

Epic! \m/
You have those vocal transitions down bro! I loved it!

Week 80

A Step You Can't Take Back - OST Begin Again by @Calule7

Thanks

This song is about a friend I think we all have by now. The Conspiracy Theory Friend. This friend will wait for you at a party and force you to watch a video that "proves" George W. Bush orchestrated 9/11. Through the spittle, you sense his unnerving devotion to his crusade, as he grabs you by the arm and says...

I added some production value this week... for best results use external speakers or headphones. It will unlock the audio on this track... Enjoy....
