The Chorus and Color Challenge

Hello everyone. It is time for a new challenge. This is not a competition, but a challenge to try something new and/or different.

The challenge has 2 parts:

1. Create a song that starts with a chorus
2. The lyrics need to include a color

You will have almost 6 weeks to complete this challenge.

The challenge starts today, Tuesday July 27th
Post completed songs on Saturday September 4th

I will set up a thread for collaboration. Lyricist and musicians who would like to collaborate can post in the thread to find a partner. If you have music or lyrics to use, feel free to post them for collaboration. You can also simply post as available to work with (the music and lyrics can come second).

Notice:

I have been getting questions about partnerships. If you would like me to assign you a partner, please let me know. You can reply to this thread "I want a partner".

If you wish to find your own partner, or want to make your own song without a partner, that is fine too.


Who's in? Reply to this thread if you are going to participate.

Let’s have some fun!
Andrea

Musicians:

RainyDayMan
moptop
samiamiamsam
ChrisPrice



Lyricists:

I've been swamped with work lately, but would still like to give this a try as a lyricist. I had a blast in the last competition.

RDM and DayDub, so glad you have decided to participate!

I'm in too, as a lyricist :)

I'll add a list of participating members in my post.

Could you sign me up for either?
I can do lyrics and/or music. But will probably end up doing both. (depending)
I also have at least one set of lyrics that have not had music written or recording yet.
Definitely a color theme. - lol

You are signed up! How nice that you already have lyrics with a color theme - crazy :)

Do you wish to collaborate with someone or work alone?

I would like to collaborate. And the team wouldn't have to use my existing lyrics.

Sounds good Sketch. I have added you as either a musician or lyricist.

Sure, sounds like fun. Can you sign me up a musician?

Are you going to be assigning teams like you did on the previous challenge?

Thanks

I will absolutely sign you up as a musician.

I wasn't planning to assign teams, but I can. It seems that some people would like this, so I am willing to.

I have revised the post to include assigning partnerships for those who want it.

Sketch and I are going to be a team.
We've been talking about working on a song together for a while.
So this is the perfect excuse!

Hey, count me in Andrea! I could put something together myself but, as always, I'm very happy to collaborate with any of the forum members. Good things come from these challenges so I'm in.

So happy to have you participate in this challenge! Hoping to have a few more participants, but will assign teams within the coming week.

I think I would like to enter solo as my time is very limited and I don't want to slow anyone down. That being said, is it ok if at the end I don't have a song to share?

Great to have you in the challenge. I will put you in as a solo. People can start to post on September 4th, but if it takes longer, that is fine too. There are no penalties for not finishing either.

Enjoy,
Andrea

Andrea, I’ll be in as a lyricist if you get enough musicians, if not I’ll set it out. Thanks

Consider yourself 'IN' then. Right now we have 3 musicians and 3 lyricists to team up, so a nice even number. I will wait until Friday to make teams in case others want to join in.

So glad you will be participating :)
