S.A.C. Songwriting & Blogging Challenge Begins – Week 1

February 16, 2014
by

by Christopher Ward

Welcome to week 1 of the S.A.C. Songwriting & Blogging Challenge.  This week’s challenge is about Songstarters.  Three of the most effective ways to focus your writing are to choose:

  • a title,
  • a theme, or
  • an opening line.

Titles like ‘Half of My Heart’ (John Mayer), ‘Like We’re Gonna Die Young’ (Keisha) and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Waters’ (Simon and Garfunkel) all tell you a lot about what’s to follow.

Themes like revenge in ‘Positively Fourth Street’ (Bob Dylan), regret as expressed in a classic song like ‘You Don’t Know Me’, and pride like in Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ clarify the direction of the song.

An opening line can give you the mood, set the story in motion or make the listener curious about what’s next. Try thinking of songs you know that fall into one of these categories and then choose a category and come up with your own ‘songstarter’.

This week, watch the video below and come up a list of existing song titles, themes and opening lines that inspire you.  Find 3 for each category.  Then, come up with 5 titles, 5 themes and 5 opening lines of your own.  Choose one and write a song with it.  Blog about any epiphanies or obstacles you encountered while meeting this challenge and embed your new creation via SoundCloud.  When the challenge is over, you can revisit your list and use your remaining ideas as launching pads for new songs.

Deadline: February 24
Please post the following below in the comments section:
1.  A link to your website if you have one.
2.  A link to your blog entry for this week containing your titles, themes and opening lines.
3.  A link to your song on SoundCloud.

Have fun!

    TheTitle of the song May be one day
    The opening line after the instrumental intro [ever since I’ve met you, you’ve turned my world arround] basicly its a love song about this girl I’ve met online and I ca’t wait to meet her in reality.
    The themes are the musical intro repeated after verse one and chorus

    Whew! Week One Challenge complete. A bit scary posting something that’s so ‘fresh’ and untested at the open mics, but here goes…

    Blog entry for this week, including lyrics to the song: http://www.kellymcquillan.com/happenings.html

    My song, “Wish That I’d Stayed to Hold Your Hand” on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/kamcquil/wish-that-id-stayed-to-hold

    Thanks for the challenge! Even though it’s hard, I need this right now. Looking forward to hearing everyone’s songs and to next week’s task 🙂

    So glad to be part of this. I’ve been quiet on the songwriting front since May 2013 when I released an album, produced by JP Cormier. I had written songs for decades but with few ever hearing that. I’m changing that and would love to start connecting with other writers in the Ottawa area.

    Having been away much of the week I haven’t completed my song of the week yet ‘Mischief Gone Wrong’ but the rest of the text answers to the challenge are on my new blog at http://www.roysunstrum.ca/blog.html

    Song to follow

    I’m a kingpin in the bowling alley of life.

    Week one tune is at:
    https://soundcloud.com/seersongwriter/launch-dont-drift

    Title: Launch, Don’t Drift
    First Line: The neighbour’s are angry and a cop’s at the door.
    Theme: Assessing and finding humour in one’s life situation.
    Here’s the lyrics:
    Launch, Don’t Drift! © Jonathan Churcher Feb. 2014.

    VERSE ONE
    The neighbours are angry, a cop’s at the door.
    I got bills to pay and a whole lot more.
    The winter’s been cold, and I’m low on cash
    It’s been way too long since I got trashed.
    I live in purgatory, on the edge of a cliff.
    But my inner voice says, ……………………..

    CHORUS
    Launch, don’t drift. Launch, don’t drift.
    Launch, don’t drift, launch don’t drift. add after repeat of chorus: Launch don’t drift.

    VERSE TWO
    If money is a problem, that’s nobody’s fault.
    You chose this path, or have you forgot?
    Lots of baggage along the way.
    So join the club, it’s a price we all pay.
    You get used to the weight, but it does get old.
    One of these days, you got to let it go.

    CHORUS

    VERSE THREE
    In a manner of speaking, I am not alone.
    I got tons of friends who visit my home.
    There’s yoga and long walks every day,
    The wilderness is just a few minutes away.
    Maybe twenty-five years left on this earth
    I’m going for the gold, whatever it’s worth.
    CHORUS

    Refrain:
    Are you living on Planet Solitude,
    Deep in the Valley of Don’t Intrude?

    CHORUS

    This week was fun – I havent recorded this song yet – still working on the melody 🙂
    I find that the lyrics will change a bit – when finalizing the melody, so that the words fit the rhythym? Does that happen with you guys?

    Born and Raised in Buick

    Born and raised in a Buick

    Just daddy and his baby girl

    A perfect mistake for a crazy world

    A classic car to make or break it

    With a V8 Nailhead under the hood

    That 66 Wildcat convertible

    Freed us from Flint – he was unstoppable

    Protecting his girl like a daddy should.

    The American heartbeat always

    Home on the back roads, byways,

    Surfing the turnpikes and highways

    When we fell she picked us up

    Gave us shelter when down on luck

    The two of us and a dual carb Buick

    If those red leather seats could talk

    About the stories of kindness on the drive

    This countries love, kept us alive

    With momma’s picture in a locket

    Luck turned south on Route 1 California

    The thirsty engine drank itself dry

    The Gulf just up the road in sight

    And my scream was too late to warn him

    The American heartbeat always

    Just off the back roads, byways,

    Turnpikes and highways

    When we fell she picked us up

    Gave us shelter when down on luck

    The two of us and a Buick

    Hard –fought, hard-knock, school yard

    A classroom built on street smarts

    Taught to finish everything you start

    Full ride scholarship from Buick to Harvard

    Quarter century gone like a flash

    She’s idled in park

    A young daughter named Skylark

    And the Wildcat safely stashed

    But on the nights when Skye won’t rest

    Daddy and his fussy baby girl

    Heed the call when the convertible purrs

    Cruising with Grandpa Buick is best

    The American heartbeat always

    Home on the back roads, byways,

    Surfing the turnpikes and highways

    When we fell she picked us up

    Gave us shelter when down on luck

    The two of us and a dual carb Buick

    Hello folk!
    Down to the last day, last hour and I am finally done!
    What a great journey over the last couple of days. Since I didn’t get on it for most of the week I had to rush this take of my song but I did it!
    Here is blog post
    http://rcampbell.com/index.php/2014/02/21/sac-6-week-challenge-week-1/
    which is on my personal site and my ‘official’ music site is

    Hey fellow songwriter! I had a lot of fun working on songs this week and ended recording a demo of a new song called “Better Days”. It was originally a mandolin idea that I adapted to guitar and I’m really pleased with how it came together. Cheers!

    So, sorry this is late .. I actually did the assignment within less than 48 hours but creative writing does not work for me on the computer.. so it’s all worked out on paper and unfortunately some tragic stuff happened this week and I just kind of forgot to get the assignment typed up.. so here it is about 16 minutes after the deadline… .. sighs .. but I did post the song right away and got to the song in accordance with the challenge guidelines .. so I guess I don’t have to feel too bad ..

    My website address http://lynnmantle.com/home.html (It’s in need of updating though)

    My blog link http://lynnmantle.wordpress.com/2014/02/25/sac-songwriting-blogging-challenge-2014-week-1-assignmentblog/

    My new song https://soundcloud.com/lynnmantle/fireflies

    oh .. and the Lyrics to my new song ..

    Fireflies by Lynn Mantle

    Rolling along at such high speeds
    You must’ve been wise to the casualties
    You should’ve known better by the time you got to me
    I was young and innocent, tender and free

    Pre Chorus
    And oh what a ride you took me on
    The fire inside was oh so strong
    Only to crash and burn

    Chorus
    Your love is like
    Oh your love is like
    Catching fireflies
    In the daytime

    I know that nothing comes for free
    But such a debt I could not conceive
    When the bloodletting starts long before the story ends
    With all the twists and turns, the road winds and bends

    Prechorus, Chorus, Vamp out
