19th Jan 2014 Posted in: Rain Perry Comments Off on Song Game (alternate prompts)

Alrighty, better late than never…here are the rest of the prompts that the audience assigned at the first Song Game! Again, the songwriters have to write a song each containing the prompts I drew from the bag, but if they want to write more from this list, they are more than welcome!

Thanks again to the enthusiastic audience! We’re off to a great start!

The next Song Game is on February 2nd (Superbowl Sunday!) and will feature Donna Lynn Caskey, James Graham, Rain Perry, John Slade and JB White. The two prompts are “marking time” and “expiration date.” The phrase must be in the song verbatim, but it doesn’t have to be the title.

7th Jan 2014 Posted in: Blog Comments Off on The First Song Game was SO MUCH FUN

We had a great time at the inaugural First Sunday Song Game! Five songwriters – me, JB White, Donna Lynn Caskey, James Graham and Eda Maxym – all performed brand new songs. I assigned them this time, and the phrases everyone had to include in their songs were “he’s back” and “complete with flaws.”

The audience gave us our next assignment. We have to write two songs incorporating each of these phrases: “marking time” and “expiration date.”

The next Song Game will be on Superbowl Sunday – February 2nd – at 7 pm. If you don’t care about the game, come on down! If you do care about the game – maybe by 7 pm it will be over and you can still come on down.

See you next month!
