May-June Music Challenge: I Saw This Thing On The Blue And...

May 5, 2017 6:59 AM

As suggested by comealongpole and rangefinder 1.4, the next challenge is to post music inspired by something you saw on the MF frontpage.

Whether it's a cheery ditty or a bleak dirge or something completely different, post something that's been inspired by an FPP.

"everybody needs a hug" applies here too, so please don't be mean or weird about the poster or any commenters in your post.

Tag your post with #MeFiMusicChallenge and #FromTheBlue to make sure it shows up in the challenge playlist!

I've been working on something for this challenge -- I just finished (and posted) a new collab with not_on_display (woo!) and now hope to finish the challenge tune in time. Coincidentally, the challenge tune was also partly inspired by n_o_d, so thanks to him for that too.

Ace - I think we need to give this challenge one more month cause there are no posts yet and I know people are working on them. Including me.

Posted my submission! I look forward to hearing your song, greenish, and anyone else working on this challenge. Good luck!

Haha! I used to post songs here at MeFiMu that was based on stuff I'd seen on the Blue with, well, great frequency! Not only posts to the Blue, but often directly inspired by comments in threads. Ah, those were the days!

Hope this Challenge went well!
