about

50/90 is The FiftyNinety Challenge, the marathon of songwriting where participants attempt to write fifty songs in the ninety days between July 4th and October 1st. Songwriters test their creative mettle by trying to create a finished song in less than 2 days every day for nearly 3 months.

During these 90 days participants encourage each other, collaborate, give and gain feedback on their new creations and push themselves to practice and refine their skills in songwriting. Whether long time vets of songwriting or picking up the pen for the first time, participants will grow their skills in making music... and just might have some fun along the way.

And this is the collection of some of the better songs to come out of my "win" in the 50/90 challenge of 2011.

The goal isn't for perfection, but for completion. Of one song. Any song. And by completing just one song at a time, and sharing it with a supportive community, working towards improvement as a songwriter, as a performer and as a musician.

Each track is pay what you want (including free - with an email address) to download. The album is $5 (or more) to download to help cover the free download credits. Anything you pay here goes towards making music, including a professionally recorded, produced and mastered EP released March 2015. So give what you want, or what you can, or wherever those two meet.

Track Name: I'm On My Way
I'm all set ready to
go as soon as
the sun shines down, down on me
I'm on my way, guaranteed

No more frowns gonna
slow me down now the
lights shine down, down on me
I'm on my way, guaranteed

My feet step out
and i'm moving forward
now the sun shines down, down on me
I'm on my way, I feel free

I'll stand out from the crowd
with my head up in the clouds
now the light shines down, down on me
I'm on my way, I feel free

everyone says hello
I'm gonna get where i wanna go
I'm all set and ready to show you
I'm on my way
Track Name: In My Mind
Memories Bittersweet
Linger on in fear
I'm unsure and insecure
Feeling lost forever

In my mind
In my mind it's clear
If I rewind
If I rewind the tears

Pictures call waterfalls
slowly see me melt
There's relief in company
Only time can tell

In my mind
In my mind it's clear
If I rewind
If I rewind the tears

In my mind
In my mind it's clear
If I rewind
If I rewind the tears

Memories bittersweet
Linger on forever
now i'm sure we'll endure
Try to make it better

In my mind
In my mind it's clear
If I rewind
If I rewind the tears
Track Name: Mono-rhyme (collaboration with @oneslowtyper)
My word vault has a lot of words, plenty that sound like rhyme.
I reach right in and grab a word, well looky here, it's time.
Some days my words get all mixed up, like one big alphabet slime.
But on other days, words flow with ease, a poet in their prime.

Mono, mono, monotonous mono-rhyme x2

Words for the most part, gotta run free, just like a bell has to chime.
And once in a while two words join as one, like when "I am" turns into I'm.
So keep track of your words, they can be sickly sweet or bitter as a lime.

And if words that you speak make you sound like a geek, then maybe you should be a mime.

Mono, mono, monotonous mono-rhyme x2

Mono (repeat x8 til fade)
Track Name: Love Like This
We lie back in the park
to enjoy the sun
There's no need for all the words
When we're as one
Conversation comes and goes
hopes and dreams
like the sunlight dancing through
the autumn leaves

Long may it stay this easy

Under cover of the night
You steal a kiss
But stealing anything is hard
With love like this
We can shut away the world
With our bedsheet
With a laugh, with a kiss
The moment's sweet

Long may it stay this easy

The unknown beckons
But our hatches are battened down
Simple bands on separate hands
Connect and ground

When the sun begins to rise
So do we
Another day, another night
To share between you and me

Long may it stay this easy
Long may it stay this easy
Track Name: There's a lot to know about sharks
They're the
Greatest predator under the sea though they cannot float
From their bones, or lack thereof, to their babies
There's oh so much for you to know

Yes they're sharks
But they're really not quite that scary
They have many quirks
That can actually make them quite cool

A group of sharks is called a gam, herd, pod or shiver.
Sharks are the only animal that never get cancer
They have enamel on their skin and don't have scales That means if you rub a shark the wrong way you'll probably cut your hand up.
Bull sharks can live in freshwater and saltwater. They’re only shark that can do that.

Yes they're sharks
But they're really not quite that scary
They have many quirks
That can actually make them quite cool

Often sharks will bite people to "test" them out to make sure that they're edible. They have special senses in their teeth.
Sharks can go through up to 1000 teeth in a lifetime. They're constantly replaced. No matter what. Some sharks have 15 rows of teeth in their mouth at once.
Even though they're fish, most sharks give birth to live babies. 
A particular type of shark's babies fight in the womb and only the strongest survive

Yes they're sharks
But they're really not quite that scary
They have many quirks
That can actually make them quite cool

Did you know, sharks are boneless. No bones. Just cartilage. Which means that usually if they stop swimming they will sink.
So in order to sleep they either shut off half their brain and keep swimming or lie on the seafloor.
Their brains are shaped like a Y, with the top bits going to each eye.

They're the
Greatest predator under the sea though they cannot float
From their bones, or lack thereof, to their babies
There's oh so much for you to know

Yes they're sharks
but they're really not quite that scary
They have many quirks
That can actually make them unique and cool in the world
Track Name: Keep Yourself To Yourself
I've got the sunshine and I've got my gin
And I don't need to see you again
You best keep yourself to yourself
And away from me

I've got my uke and I've got time
Yeah, I don't need you in my life
You best keep yourself to yourself
And away from me

In the summertime, when the weather's fine
And you fancy a frolic in the sun
You'd best remember, dear, that I was here
And you wrecked all our fun

I've got the sunshine and I've got my gin
And I don't need to see you again
You best keep yourself to yourself
And away from me

I've got my uke and I've got time
Yeah, I don't need you in my life
You best keep yourself to yourself
And away from me

When winter comes and your body longs
for the warmth of another's sweet sweet skin
I hope that you recall that I was all yours
but you let my patience wear thin

I've got the sunshine and I've got my gin
And I don't need to see you again
You best keep yourself to yourself
And away from me
You best keep yourself to yourself
And away from me
Track Name: Red Love/Strawberry Secrets (collaboration with @grintica)
Red was the colour of the sky above
And red was the sound of your breath
Red was my face when you first held my hand and
Red was the way my heart leapt

Oh oh ooohhhhh-oh x2

You’re my red love x4

Red were the roses you gave me that day
Red were the strawberries we shared
Strawberries are secrets, secrets are songs
And red was the music in the air

Oh oh ooohhhhh-oh x2

You’re my red love x4

Red was your laugh, how it lit up your face
And red was the spark in your eye
Red was the moment I knew it was true;
Red is the rest of our lives

Oh oh ooohhhhh-oh x2

You’re my red love x4

Red was the colour of the sky above
And red was the sound of your breath
Red was my face when you first held my hand and
Red was the way my heart leapt
