Top Chat
Due: Thursday, 09/16/21 09/15/21 9:59am PDT
optional challenge: Two different bridge sections
yourbandname_tc.mp3 sent to fightmaster@songfight.org
Subject: Top Chat
Body: (your band name)

The bridge sections can be contiguous or not but they should be musically different, not just the same bridge happening twice.

I attempted the two bridge challenge but I wasn’t really feeling it so instead I made the entire song a bridge and “leaned” into a genre I have never attempted before.

I’m in.

I may be in this. I have an idea but I don't know if it's good.

That is where you declare your trump. I have written some of the most tremendous bridge sections. People - very smart people-say are the best bridge sections ever written.

This fight says it's due on Thursday, September 15, but this Thursday is September 16, not 15. Is the due date intended to be on Wednesday or Thursday?

I'm puttin' on my top chat,
Tyin' up my white tie,
Brushin' off my tails


I'm here again but forgot about the optional challenge.
I don't even think I got a bridge let alone a bridge section, and if I have then they're pretty much all the same as each other :?

Ugh. This is what happens when I don't have access to the tools I usually use (on the Jukebox) to generate the data for the fight. Instead of picking a date from calendar widget I type it in manually and of course that means I screw it up sometimes. :lol: :lol:

To be fair to anybody who took the "Thursday" part to be the correct part I will adjust the deadline to be Thursday the 16th. Thank you for pointing out the discrepancy.
