    Default Season 309 - Senses Working Overtime



    1,2,3,4,5 Senses Working Overtime.

    Sight,
    Hearing,
    Touch,
    Smell,
    Taste.

    Season 309 is given over to songs about the senses. Each song you do should feature one or more of the five senses, either in the title or as subject matter/lyrics.

    There are 5 senses mentioned above, accordingly there is a 5 song limit. If you wish to focus on a different sense for each of your songs great but it’s not essential.

    Originals more than welcome, especially if you’ve never written an original before. There are threads with tips on how to write songs, although I don’t have any links.....think there were links on Season 308. My own personal tip is, throw caution to the wind and do it. Lyrics first or tune first, doesn’t matter, just have a go, surprise yourself.

    Songs should be newly recorded for Season 309.

    Ukulele must be main instrument, but other instruments can be in the mix. Multitracking, collaborations are fine.

    Season starts midnight Hawaii time Saturday and finishes 8 days later. You know the drill.

    No prizes at time of going to press. If I get time I might organise some token gifts.

    I know this is a bit earlier than usual but I might not get time to do this later this evening.

    Nice theme - kinda feely touchy.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    Once again, one of the the 365 songs that I had written down for this week, is pretty well a perfect fit. Just hope I can shake off the cold which is limiting me a bit.

    Lots of potential here, John!

    But as you say, I hope people don't instantly abandon SOTU 308 - especially as I have just posted my latest opus magnus there - a song inspired by the death of John Keats and my visit to the house in Rome where he died.
    I am pleased with this one, it is my attempt at a kind of "Starry, starry night...." in essence

    Sir John, I will do my best to try and get something done.
    It seems like as of late I have been overwhelmed with life.
    This week I have spent every day at my dad's side. He has pneumonia and was in the hospital all week.
    He had enough and refused to stay any longer and left before he should have. He is 83. What do you do when a parent does that?
    Well, there is nothing you can do except do your best to take care of them at home.

    If I get a spare moment to participate I will
    This is a great idea for a theme!

    Before this thread is taken over by those that want to say you feel for me, I already now that! You are all so caring. Carry on and have fun!
    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

    I just wanted to mention that there are a whole lot more than 5 senses. If someone had a song about proprioception, etc., would that be acceptable? (I'm not saying that I do, but I'm asking just in case.)

    I was thinking the same thing.

    On my own..should I wander through this wonderland alone?
    Never knowin' my right foot from my left,
    My hat from my glove,
    I'm too misty, and too much in love.
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...
