Spintunes 16 Round 2- Count Me In

Post by glennny » Sat Feb 08, 2020 10:38 am

SpinTunes 16 Round 2 CHALLENGE

I hope you've been paying attention to the schedule! Round 2's challenge goes up BEFORE the Round 1 rankings are tallied and eliminations are announced!

Count Me In: Your lyrics must prominently feature counting. How and what you count is up to you - you can count up or down, by ones, fives, tens, logarithmically, exponentially; you can count steps in a process, miles in a journey, hours in a day…

Examples:
Dua Lipa - "New Rules"
Shel Silverstein - "25 Minutes to Go"
Kate & Anna McGarrigle - "Matapedia"
Hamilton - "Ten Duel Commandments"
Raffi - "Five Little Ducks"
Plain White Ts - "1234"
They Might Be Giants - "Countdown Intro"
Bill Haley & The Comets - "Rock Around the Clock"

I believe so? But since Spintunes uploaded them all, they have control over it. I know we had the same issue in the first round.

Let me look at that. I fixed it the last time, but it might default back every time we make a new lp on Bandcamp.

Confirmed it's set to 100 streams per song per person, so you should be all set.

I haven't thought of that song for ages. The more references to west coast unsigned greats of the 90s, the better.

Hmm, for some reason the app stopped letting me listen... I’ll just find the LP video and listen to that!

Oh hey, I loved that one! I recall a ton of counting in the following week's "501". My entry had no counting...

Try cleaning out your cookies in the cache for Bandcamp and see if that fixes the issue. It might still have the old data setting.
