Song of the Season 01 | Round 2 - Heaven's Mirror (pg. 35!)

1,584 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We did agree that R1/R2 or so would be longer anyway just to help people get introduced but we might make round two a day shorter even then. 

 

Anyway I'm a flop and haven't written anything for this round BUT I can at least share a preview (not really a preview when it's literally all I have right now) of something I'm working on in the future and may or may not edit 

 

 
 
 
Spoiler

Haunting hours

Dire mistakes

Years devoured

As conscience invades

Days are cycled

In fragmented minds

Heads have spiraled

In the hands of time

 

Title TBD, but I at least know my concept and it's extra as hell but I mean my concepts always are

I was wondering about the critique aspect of it. I didn't know we were getting reviews, so I'm actually excited about that :duca:

Yeah we'll each be doing our own reviews - basically our own thoughts on the song/the concepts, things we really liked, things that could be worked on etc and then once all that is done we will compile our individual rankings into an average ranking~

Wrote a second song this week, called Divine Quintessence. That was one of the many names used to refer to the Philosopher's Stone, which is in itself a symbol of alchemy. In this, I personified the Philosopher's Stone to be somebody in which the narrator is enthralled by, seeing them as someone with divine knowledge and magical ability, which the Philospher's Stone was often associated with. This is my more #conceptual piece compared to my more pop-friendly Unburdened. My ability choice this time was Power of Alchemy.

"Divine Quintessence"

by Hug

 

[intro]

Myne divine quintessence

Bask in thyne competence

Blessed by thyne luminesce

O glory be, divine quintessence

 

[verse]

What powers have you over me

What spellcraft casts me to my knees

Your fingers call forth alchemy

I’m gold inside your magic hands

 

The soil trembles when it hears your name

The waters boil when it feels your flames
Your winds have made the mountains shake

That’s understating, I understand

 

[chorus]

I’m but a simple, lowly fool

You’ve made to feel like shining gold

No candles one could ever hold

To thee who claimed my weary soul

 

I’m but a simple, lowly man

Who played into your master plan

Nay destiny nor happenstance

Could overrule your righteous hand

 

[verse two]

What limits may your powers have

What insight may your knowledge cast

Your footsteps lead a golden path

I’ll follow to the wicked end

 

The sunlight dulls when you cast a smile

The starscape pales to your vibrant shine

No darkness breathes inside your light

That’s understating, I understand

 

[chorus]

I’m but a simple, lowly fool

You’ve made to feel like shining gold

No candles one could ever hold

To thee who claimed my weary soul

 

I’m but a simple, lowly man

Who played into your master plan

Nay destiny nor happenstance

Could overrule your righteous hand

 

[outro]

Myne divine quintessence

Bask in thyne competence

Blessed by thyne luminesce

O glory be, divine quintessence

Yes I did, yes I did,
Somebody please tell her who the "F" I is
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up,
Back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up

 

And you will read every single word.

 

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
Oh, estoy loca, no, no, no, no puedo
Ya dejarte de pensar
Y tú me llevas hasta el cielo (El cielo)
Con tu modo de hablar

 

[Refrain 2: Ariana Grande]
Dame un beso, mi amor, y acaríciame
Llévame al cielo, enamórame
Baby, yo quiero (Estar contigo)
No te vayas, escucha lo que 
digs

:oh: 

 

loving it loving it loving it babyLove and affection all my attention
You don't gotta question, If I'm really
Lovin' you, lovin' you, lovin' it, lovin' it baby :jamming:Hold up, wait, shut up and kiss me, babe
I just wanna get a little taste
I just wanna get a little taste before you go

ooahwwhaooohhhoaoowoahwaooowhaowhaowhowaowow

:jonny5: I COULD WRITE A SONG ON MY NEW PIANO

I COULD SING ABOUT HOW LOVE IS A LOSING BATTLE

IT'S NOT HARD IT'S NOT HARD

IT'S NOT HARD

IT'S NOT HARD

And I could sing about cupid and a shooting arrow,
In the end, you'll find out that my heart was better,
Real hard, (real hard) it's so hard, (so hard)
Real hard, (real hard) it's not hard, (it's not hard)

But I'd rather make a song they can play on the radio babe
Makes you wanna dance, don't it make you wanna dance
But I'd rather make a song they can play on the radio babe
Makes you wanna grab your lover's hands

 

:katie2: whew, a BOP!

Well there's no elimination this round so no pressure but because of that R2 is also open for sign-ups

I know I said we wouldn't do another reminder but I guess I felt it necessary to do one close to the deadline just in case + because I have something else to say anyway. 

 

From the time of this post, there's about 6 hours left to submit. We aren't THAT strict on the deadline, however, so as long as you submit anytime today / the next 24 hours, it should be fine (you can submit tomorrow too, but there'd be a penalty for that one even though it doesn't matter much in R1). Here is the link to the Google Form for submitting, and here is the challenge post. Good luck everyone and remember that this is just a trial round so no one's eliminated for this one. You COULD even just skip this round and submit R2 (but we'd prefer if you sent even just a like one word submission just letting us know if you wanted to do that so we can have an idea).

Sorry for the silence. I've written something. Just tidying it up. It was so weird to write for the first time in what feels like years. I'm definitely rusty.
