May 2019 ODC - Please Mr. Postman
« on: May 08, 2019, 05:04:04 AM »
OK, who here remembers letters? Ya know, those things that show up in a box outside yer home, or that you place a stamp on to send along.... ::)

The mission, if ya decided to accept it, is to write a song about letters...with this twist....

The first 1/2 of the song has to be about the FIRST letter you receive today, be it junk mail or not. And the 2nd 1/2 has to be about the LAST letter you sent out this week....boxes / parcels do not count.  ;D

Any style, minimum 2:30, collabs welcome (one write the 1st half, the other the second, etc)...funny, serious, gripe about the postman, whatever ya feel like.  :P

Let the games begin!  ::->  ~:)  8)

Interesting challenge Smurf ~:)...most of the stuff we get in these days is junk!!,..which is fine. plenty of scope and inspiration there...my problem is, for the second part of the challenge , I can`t remember the last letter I wrote, and I don`t think I`ll be sending any soon...would an email work instead?
What would be the ruling on that mate ...

Cotton, it does not have to be a letter YOU wrote, it could be a bill you paid, an RSVP return, requesting info.......if you placed an envelope in the post, it is fair game!

BUT IF NOT.....email are cool also, the point is to take an everyday object that we communicate with and crank out an award winning tune.....

Hows that?

Got it Smurf, thanks...this has just made me realise how much things have changed...I remember almost everything was done by mail , all forms had to be sent by mail , most bills were paid by mail or in person...now we fill our forms on line, we pay our bills on line, mostly everything is done online...all the postman seems to deliver these days is junk mail...changed days indeed!!

Good challenge though 8)
