Today (Tuesday, July 11th) marks the end of the first week of the 5090 Song Challenge and so far I’ve completed and uploaded five songs to the 50/90 site.
What has amazed me about this first week is that only one of the songs is a stripped back piano/voice composition and the rest are full arrangements. I suppose that’s an indication of the amount of time I’ve had to write and record these songs so far as I know that some weeks will be much tighter than others.
What I’ve also noticed since getting back into song challenge mode is that I’m more aware of what is going on inside my head and what is happening out in the real world. I’m becoming more open and sensitive to the next possible song idea, no matter where it may come from.
Who knew that a song challenge could have some pleasant side effects such as this.
Now, I’m off to find my next song idea.
