Challengers of Song Fu

Masters of Song Fu

That’s Bryan and Me as To Serve Mankind – you remember, the band that used to play at all the church functions. Well, we’re on a mission from God… not really God, but a mission nonetheless – to become the Masters of Song Fu – by taking on a series of weekly songwriting challenges, of which we have absolutely no foreknowledge. We will be judged by Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm, and Doc Hammer. You may know some of those names. I just received the first challenge…

You must do a song in the style of a classic television show. Not only that, but this song is the theme for a fictional television show about yourself (or your band). By “classic television show” theme song, we mean the type of themes found in shows from the 1960’s – 1980’s (ie Gilligan’s Island, Cheers, The Fall Guy, Diff’rent Strokes, Welcome Back Kotter, Greatest American Hero, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, The Facts Of Life, Green Acres, Gimme A Break, The Monkees, etc.). Your theme song must include both lyrics and music. It must run no shorter than 30 seconds, and no longer than one (1) minute. Deadline for submission is 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, May 27th, 2008.”

So there you have it – our first challenge. Who are we? That is very profound. I’m not sure we knew. That is something to consider, especially as we have to compose something that reflects us. Feel free to offer suggestions in the comment section of this post. We will take those very seriously – as, so far, no inspiration.

If you have any interest in checking out the official contest page, you can find it at Quick Stop Entertainment.

    Clear your Chi and take a deep cleansing breath. Now focus, grasshoppers. Before you can master SongFu you must first master your fear! 🙂 I don’t have any actual suggestions, but I’m sure you will do great!

  3. Jeff Little Says:

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. I don’t know if those votes count towards our win, but they mean a lot anyway. I am feeling pretty confident now. Bryan and I watched 5 episodes of Avatar today – so I think our Fu is balanced.
