Lyric Writing Contest

You wanna get rich and famous? What are you doing here? But I tell you what, you can put lyrics to my tune, "Lovely Weather, Heather," and not only win the contest, but also have your name next to mine as co-writer. You can be Hal David to my Burt Bacharach.

The rule is that you can't change the title, it has to be "Lovely Weather, Heather." As recorded, it's 40 bars long, the structure being AABCD (8 bars each). If you want, you can make it a 32 bar tune (ABCD), since that's more common. It will work either way. D is really similar to A, anyway.

If you win, I'll send you a hand-written postcard, written in my own hand, plus if the song ever becomes a hit, you'll get credit. Although, theoretically, since it's not copyrighted, somebody could steal it. I'm not always keen on respecting intellectual property rights, so I guess I gotta put my money where my mouth is (good thing there's no actual money involved, because I don't want those filthy bills and coins in my mouth).

Get your pencil out, put your thinking cap on, and get busy writing the lyrics to Lovely Weather, Heather.

If you want to see photos of the recording, head on over to Mondo Marco.

Heck of a hot tub, Heather!

sorry I ain't been around to catch things like this. I was home for a week with no internet and been busy at work but will try to apply myself better to comment and participate more in the future. I may get internet for my phone. Then I will be more in the loop. And that's all I have to say about that, and that's the truth. Brrrrt (insert raspberry)

Re: Heck of a hot tub, Heather!

No worries! Tune in when you get a chance.

How's this.

Dead girls don't care about the weather, Heather.
(repeat)

Re: How's this.
