    TAGS: skirmish, superskirmish, songskirmish, skirmishSS0203-A, SS0203-A

    WHAT: We'll have a 1 hour song skirmish and it will go something like this:

    1) At the start of the event, I'll announce a title/prompt/theme for your inspiration.

    2) All participants write, record and post a song within an hour. Lyrics-only posts are also absolutely fine. And if you take longer than an hour, PLEASE post anyway.

    3) Be sure and tag your song and also post a link to it in this thread.

    4) If you participate, please listen to (or read) and comment on the songs of all the other skirmish participants

    Fun and embarrassment ensue. But most importantly, everyone has one more song!

    Wow!! You're really on top of it!! Skirmishes are one of my favorite things about FAWM. They seem to dredge up things I know would never happen any other way!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I'll need to get this into my calendar!

    I'm sorry but I really don't get it. This current skirmish according to my calculations should have started 35 minutes ago.... Is it starting in 23 hours and 25 minutes from now?
    I just really wanna participate in the skirmishes please some help.... I'm also tired and have no idea how else can I check this..

  • @aprilm  Feb 2018

    Can't wait !

  • @treble  Feb 2018

    I'm new to FAWM and this sounds crazy fun!! How do I tag a song (or maybe just lyrics,-not quite set up yet to record)? Is it OK to post a link from Dropbox? THANKS!

  • @jcameron Feb 2018

    I'm in. Although it will be 10pm on a Friday night my time so that's conditional on my still being sober enough to write and/or play some sort of instrument!

  • @skylermf Feb 2018

    Never done one before, but Iโ€™d really like to try this!! I think Iโ€™ll be able to make it

  • @brrrse  Feb 2018

  • @tiller2  Feb 2018

    I'm down for it, er, up for it! Whoops, life is getting in the way this time. Sorry.

  • @scubed  Feb 2018

    Woohoo!

  • @haim  Feb 2018

    I'll try to stay awake and aware.. Or maybe writing a song unaware is even better than drunkenness? Count me in!! Exciteddd!!

  • @haim  Feb 2018

    @treble the answer for all of your questions is - yes. About the tags question - all you need to do is copy the tags that are attached to this post under "TAGS" into the tags field of your new song and that's it, everyone will see it when looking for the tags of this current skirmish. Hope you'll participate. Good luck have fun.

  • @vegansongs  Feb 2018

    Hi Skirmishers! I'm in!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2018

    Okay... itโ€™s raining in Queensland and Iโ€™m awake. Weโ€™re leaving on a 6 hour drive right at the close of the skirmish so it definitely will only be lyrics.

  • @stuartbenbow  Feb 2018

    Looks like I'm in, tea and water prepped, note pad ready, and oh, I'll be live streaming on Facebook ... no pressure. lol.

  • @aprilm  Feb 2018

    The countdown is on! I'm ready, surrounded by various drums and percussion, 2 guitars, and a pen and paper! Let's do this!

  • @johnstaples  Feb 2018

    Starting in about 5 minutes!!!

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 2018

    I'm going to try!

  • @aprilm  Feb 2018

    (I'm going out soon, will have to listen to everyone else's probably tomorrow)

    enjoy- that was fun!

  • @brrrse  Feb 2018

    Okay so passing the 1 hour mark but I'm close!! stick around at the next hour for my skirmish!! I'll have mine up as soon as I record it ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @snoozin  Feb 2018

    Thanks for the prompt @johnstaples ! http://fawm.org/songs/77970/

  • @spingo  Feb 2018

    In! Thanks!
    http://fawm.org/songs/77972/

    What came out was 100x mopier than I'd intended, but I guess the brain does what it likes.

    Also, really it's just a chorus. Don't tell.

  • @spingo  Feb 2018

    I never really used this to record before and 47 seconds was adding an F#m button! I play guitar, but this was super useful to have the brain and hands have as little to do as possible.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2018

    Well... definitely not my finest skirmish effort... http://fawm.org/songs/77969/

  • @skylermf Feb 2018

    I've NEVER written a song that fast!

  • @ajna1960  Feb 2018

    I am so so sorry guys, but anyone usong FAWM hosting, I can't listen to your songs on my laptop (chrome/win 10).. some glitch on FAWM ๐Ÿ˜ž

    http://fawm.org/songs/77982/ My subconscious took a weird turn on this one.

    Thanks, @johnstaples!

  • @stuartbenbow  Feb 2018

    @aprilm Courageous or crazy, the lines tend to blur about those two quite often. If anyone wants to check out the playback on how I got there, the link's here... https://www.facebook.com/StuartBenbow...

  • @roadreg Feb 2018

    Give me ten more minuteesss, just need to finish up lyrics.

  • @jcameron Feb 2018

    Well, that was an embarrassing attempt at a song, but I'll leave it here anyway. http://fawm.org/songs/77985/

  • @aprilm  Feb 2018

    Phew! It was written quickly but the recording took longer! Here it is, a bit of a departure from my usual... http://fawm.org/songs/77990/

  • @ajna1960  Feb 2018

    @sherrycanary I think you posted the wrong link !

  • @brrrse  Feb 2018

    Here ya go - You didn't see me coming.

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 2018

    I missed it, I missed it... got out of training late for work. Blah! Braindead from a long day...will attempt later tonight!

  • @skittycat  Feb 2018

    Wow!
    I was just about to go to bed when I read a story from a friend on Facebook who had suffered an attempted mugging - my friend is a combat specialist. This song wrote itself and I was just off to bed ๐Ÿ˜
    That is the fastest set of lyrics I think I've ever written - 10 mins
    http://fawm.org/songs/78006/

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2018

    I missed it, too... What a pity...

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 2018

  • @oneslowtyper  Feb 2018

    Almost missed this one. Started late, posted late... but less than one hour total.
    http://fawm.org/songs/78017/

  • @haim  Feb 2018

    Hi dear skirmishers, it's getting really late here I tried to respond as much as I could for today, I promise to come back tomorrow morning and finish all of the other songs properly without being tired. Good night and thanks @johnstaples for hosting this skirmish, it was fun.

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 2018

    Interrupted by supper, but here we are. http://fawm.org/songs/78029/

  • @vegansongs  Feb 2018

    Ack- took me longer to record..again! But I wrote it in the hour!
    http://fawm.org/songs/78030/

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 2018

    Thanks @johnstaples - Though I must admit my first thought went in a NSFW direction then I pulled myself back to a simple love song. Ha! Mistress Darci will need to come out sometime this month...maybe after everyone has left. @writeandwrong - am I right?

  • @complexissimple Feb 2018

    I forgot what time the first skirmish was scheduled for, so I started an hour and a bit late. Here's mine: http://fawm.org/songs/78032/

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2018

    I liked the theme, so decided to take part in this though I started way too late... Anyway, here is mine...

  • @treble  Feb 2018

    I totally messed up my computer trying to post a link to song (this is why hesitate to start something more technical such as recording LOL.) Took my husband awhile to fix computer. ANYWAY, i wrote song in one hour, but won't get to commenting on your songs until later.
    Thanks @johnstaples I had never heard of a skirmish before and it was fun! Liked the theme!

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 2018

    @treble looks like you got it...

  • @unkept Feb 2018

    Sorry I'm late! Took just over an hour, mostly because I had to hop between rooms.

    http://fawm.org/songs/78083/

  • @sheilerk  Feb 2018

    Had to ferry kiddos around this afternoon/evening. I'll have to jump in tomorrow.

  • @sunnymae  Feb 2018

    whoops forgot to post this here I'm a little rusty try to remember how to post all this stuff. here you go guys๐Ÿ˜ http://fawm.org/songs/78033/

  • @scubed  Feb 2018

    Wow - so many great songs & lyrics from @johnstaples's prompt! ๐Ÿ˜€ I think I've commented on everyone's now - apologies if I missed anyone.

  • @johnstaples  Feb 2018

    Wow! I finally got to everyone's songs and we had like more than 30 for this one skirmish! I have never seen this many folks in a single skirmish! You guys totally rock!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2018

    Just a note to say Iโ€™m still getting around to listening to everyone. Some great stuff!
