It seems everyone needs to take a break and get back to "real life" after living on the net for a few years....it is scary how  the hours add up when you are sitting in front of a screen.....

BOTB 2018 - Bands and Details
« on: June 06, 2018, 01:57:00 AM »
As promised, late I know, the draw has been made!

No doubt you’re all itching to know who your band mates will be.....

But first, a little housekeeping.....

It was decided to go with four bands of three members each......
This way, if there are any latecomers they can be inserted into the bands in numerical order....firstly though, if there is a dropout any late volunteers will automatically take over the missing member’s spot. If there are no back outs, the next volunteer will join Band 1, second volunteer will join Band 2 and so on......got that? Good.

Anyone else who missed the original post.....now is your chance to sign up!
Don’t be shy....everyone is welcome!!

The bands were drawn blindly from a plant pot by my lovely assistant, She Who Must Be Obeyed ( ‘er indoors for short ).

Here are the bands:

Band 1:   @RedJoker - @Joom  - @neilmac

Band 2:   @way2lon  - @Cottonwood  - @Smurf

Band 3:   @whitestrat73  - @papaG  - @onetrack

Band 4:   @Dino - @rkennett  - @BoneDigger

The challenge is to write and record a brand new song, to the best of your ability, and post it to the BOTB SoundCloud account (login details when I remember what they are from last year  :P ) before midnight on the 31st July 2018.

We had two theme suggestions, so you are free to choose from either ( or both if you’re feeling ambitious   :P ).

The themes were “Lost Forever” and “Anger Management”.......

Any style, any length, any method is completely acceptable

Practice is encouraged but not mandatory - unless you were drawn in the same band as PG, in which case different rules apply....  :P

Have at ‘er boys and girls!

Quite the grouping, Neil.  Should be a very interesting BotB this time.

We have company coming in the morning for an overnight, and I have a 12 hour computer day scheduled for Friday, but I'll be getting with you and Red this weekend to see what everyone has in mind.

These things are always great, looking forward to the 2018 hits coming out of this one...  (-!)

OK, it looks like we need the 2nd upload to creat the playlist, so that is on whoever uploads next. Now, on to our 2018 BOTB entry!

=====

At times EVERYONE feels like everything is going wrong....that the world is mad.....that the extended warranty was a waste of money......we have ALL carried the weight of the world at some point in our lives, and this is just a song that, for lack of a better term, celebrates that human condition....

World On My Shoulders Blues - Cottonwood Blues Band

came off the rails when i was very young
 they put me in an institute i didn't stay for long
 i got a taste for alcohol the bottle was my friend
 i was doing twenty smokes a day when  i was only ten

CHORUS
 Now I`m walking, tired of talking, feeling like a loser all the way to my shoes.
 Pockets empty, debts aplenty, I got the whole damn world on my shoulder blues.

A woman caught my eye when I was twenty two.
Said she would stop my wandering stop me feeling blue.
Got me see the preacher to get married Saturday.
She was waiting at the Church I was twenty miles away.

CHORUS
Now I`m walking, tired of talking, feeling like a loser all the way to my shoes.
Pockets empty, debts aplenty, I got the whole damn world on my shoulder blues.

 BREAK

tried I'd settle down when i was thirty five
working in car wash but lordy  man alive
The boss man came to me and started pushing me around
Felt like I was dirty in the scrap car pound

CHORUS
Now I'm walking, tired of talking, feeling like a loser all the way to my shoes
Pockets empty, debts a-plenty, I got the whole damn world on my shoulder blues.

Went out to Hollywood   when I was fifty four,
thought,if I was lucky,   I'd become a star
I was pumping iron for photographs and pumping gas
They put me as a stand-in for Charles Atlas

CHORUS
Now I'm walking, tired of talking, feeling like a loser all the way to my shoes
Pockets empty, debts a-plenty, I got the whole damn world on my shoulder blues.

=====

The Cottonwood Blues Band is.....

"Cottonwood" Pat - Vocals, Songwriter

Dave "way2lon" - Vocals, Harmonica, Songwriter

Jim "Smurf - Multi-Instrumentalist, Production, Mixer

=====

"World On My Shoulders Blues" by The Cottonwood Blues Band falls under “Anger Management”  (take a walk / walk it off)

The Cottonwood Blues Band would like to thank, in no particular order......

Tim Horton's Coffee, Mom's Pizza, Blue Lager Beer, Orange Juice, The Sunset, Time, Rain Clouds, The Letter A, The Color Blue, and everyone & everything we have forgotten.

Enjoy!

I don't think I can really contribute to this like I had hoped, so I'm out. If anyone would like to take my place in Band 4, let Dino and RK know.

I was sad to get your email this morning.  I haven't been as active in this thing as much I would like to either.
