Phill
in that comp my song wasn`t very good but i think it did ok because it was ``on theme``
which was one of the requirements of the comp.(connection)
it also broke all the so called ``rules`` which hopefully they found refreshing.
it went 2 lines of verse then two lines of chorus .repeating.
hopefully comps want ``original`` songs  not the usual broken heart/ love ya love ya stuff

Yeah Phill that was a year ago.the best thing about that comp was it truly was about the song.
they realised not every writer is a good singer or musician.Also production and quality of recording
were not taken into consideration.It was good to be judged on ``the song`` and not all the other stuff.
Other songwriting comps ive looked at seem to be more a talent quest,the song being only a small component.

Pete and me playing together would ruin a good relationship.
although a good name for us would be ``two times terrible``

Bill
i thought i`d have a crack at one of these songs,tried Jets song but wasnt happy with
what i did with it.Then i did Peatles that turned out better.i`d send you it but havent got your
email address.
thanks for breathing life back into chordie,its been on life support for a some time.     

Great idea Bill,I`m sure Peatle would be interested too.     

Great to see you back Bill,its been very quiet without you.
many of us had stopped posting as no one wanted to converse
you where always good for a conversation and always replied.

Vertigo Minds
they shout hate
at the man they say shouts hate
they tell lies
about the man they say tells lies
facts turning to dust
and blown away in the wind
oh the heady heights
of the high moral ground 

Sad indictment Jets, 60 people have read your post only 10% bothered to go listen

Some times i wonder how into music chordians are.
some of us are music nuts,if you are like me you`ve got to listen this
a podcast on spotify  ``the history of rock in 500 songs``
this is FANTASTiC   the guy is taking 10 yrs to make this series
at the moment it`s up to episode 135 still 7 yrs of music to come
each show is about 45 mins the research is unbelievable,
if you love music, do yourself a favour, have a listen,dont think you will regret it.

interesting has merit,great to see you trying stuff other than tried and true.
an artist i think is very interesting is Bill Callahan i like what  he does
but i cant get into it.but i keep going back because  hes different.
hope this makes some kinda sense.

like easy trying to make my mind up on this one, like the story behind it would loved to been able to hear her play. reminds me a of an old dude years ago on bourbon street playing the blues on guitar my crew left me on the side walk listening to him while they went on bar hopping. all ways amazes me how people with that much talent never get a break and the crap that makes on the radio today

crap on the radio today ,surely not?

all good Phill,i often think of stars that ``made it`` they often live terrible unhappy lives.
of course they have money and fame.but would any of us really choose michael jacksons or elvis life?
remember if you have to choose it`s all their life,not just the good bits.

Phill
what is ``making it`` 1 hit song then drugs and die young or live in poverty
or
having a wife and family living a good life having grand children later in life.
i think you have ``made it`` plus you have made music,sure maybe no hits but entertained
a lot of people over many years.
