I thought I’d start things off my involvement in the 100 Songs In 180 Days Songwriting Challenge (aka 100/180) with a song about the current situation that is affecting all of us at the moment

Have a listen and let me know what you think either in the comments section below or, by contacting me directly.

These Four Walls (100/180-001)

V1
These four walls that surround me now
Will not let me go
Coz there is no chance of escaping
Even though it’s for a little while
I will let you know
That this whole wide world’s relating

Chorus
Call it a lockdown, call it isolation
But we’re all doing our bit for our nation
This is not gonna last forever
Coz we’re all in this together
(These four walls)

V2
These four walls that surround me now
Will not get me down
Coz there a lot at stake to consider
Even though I will keep my distance
Socially
I don’t think of myself as a prisoner

Chorus
Guitar Solo
Chorus

Outro
These four walls
These four walls


Watch this space, there will be a few more songs to come yet.

Peace,

I just signed up to the 100 Songs In 180 Days Songwriting Challenge on Facebook. It was created as a way for participants of FAWM and the 50 Songs In 90 Days Songwriting Challenges to make the best use of the time spent in lockdown thanks to COVID-19.

According to its Facebook page, the 100 Songs In 180 Days Songwriting Challenge is described as follows…

The challenge is to write 100 songs in 180 days (aka 100/180). The challenge begins on April 4, 2020 and ends October 1, 2020. The second half of 100/180 will run concurrent to the 50 songs in 90 days challenge (aka 50/90) from July 4th through October 1st.

This challenge is intended to be complementary to 50/90 during this year where many of us find ourselves spending much more time at home than in other times. The purpose of this group is to provide a location for posting songs written during 100/180.

It is hoped to develop a supportive environment (similar to February Album Writing Month and 50/90) and like FAWM and 50/90, the goal is to send the inner editor on vacation, write, and have fun, no matter what the song output is.

With all that said, I’m going to post my demos on this blog as there’s no official 100/180 website to upload songs to as yet (and trying to upload multiple song links on a Facebook page can get pretty clumsy).

If you’re a songwriter with some time on your hands I suggest that you go to the 100 Songs In 180 Days Songwriting Challenge Facebook page and join in all the fun.

What better way to spend your lockdown time then writing songs

Peace,

Corey 🙂
