1. Tell us a little about yourself (preferred name, pronouns, etc.)

 

I’m Jake (he/him). I’m unfortunately American and too old for this ****. All of it. 

 

2. What is your previous experience with song writing?


Wrote many songs circa 2011-2018, and nothing since then. I competed in a few seasons of Platinum Hits, coming in the top three once and then probably bombing the other time(s). Who even remembers?

 

 

3. Who are your favourite song writers?

 

Taylor Swift, Madonna, Brandy Clark, Florence Welch, Natalia Kills, George Michael, Troye Sivan, Lori McKenna, Janelle Monae, Sufjan Stevens, Lorde….

 

4. List some examples of your favourite lyrics and the best written songs in your opinion.

5. What are some of your main sources of creative inspiration?

 

Lately, nothing. In the past, I’ve written a lot about identity, depression / anxiety, Greek mythology, and sociopolitical topics. 


And I just found this gem of a throwback while reviewing some old notes: 

 

 

Honestly, it's great that you are coming back. If I remember rightly, I believe I asked if you wanted to judge back in Diamond Hit, and you were definitely a formidable player in those PH seasons. I'd love if you could get back into writing with this game. :clap3:

My name’s Joe! 25 years old. he/him or they/them. i’m currently a 7th year undergrad student (lol) who will finally be done with college in august. i am classically trained on the double bass and i also sing and play guitar, autoharp, ukulele, keys, and a bit of flute. i love performing at open mics and even though most of my songs are kinda folky at the moment, i’d love to eventually become the first jewish bisexual MPB :gaycat2:

 

2. What is your previous experience with song writing?

I’ve been writing songs since i was 8! it just came very naturally and although i haven’t been trained a ton on keyboards, i started writing rudimentary song skeletons with my family’s piano

 

3. Who are your favourite song writers?

Kate Bush, David Bowie, Jeff Buckley, Joanna Newsom, Lana Del Rey, Mitski, Marina, Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse, PJ Harvey, Fiona Apple, Perfume Genius, Björk

 

4. List some examples of your favourite lyrics and the best written songs in your opinion.

“while you are away, my heart comes undone, slowly unravels in a ball of yarn. the devil collects it with a grin, our love in a ball of yarn, he’ll never return it…” (unravel by björk)

”traced in the park, an outline in chalk, where i took his hand in mine for a little while everything was alright…” (no good by perfume genius)

”here i am again my girl, wondering what on earth i’m doing here? maybe he doesn’t love me, i just took a trip on my love for him…” (the man with the child in his eyes by kate bush)

”well it took a lot of work to be the ass that i am, and i’m really damn sure that anyone can, equally, easily, f*ck you over” (dark center of the universe by modest mouse)

“and the tilt of this strange nation, and the will to remain for the duration, waving the flag, feeling it drag! like a bump on a bump on a log, baby, like i’m in a fistfight with the fog, baby” (good intentions paving company by joanna newsom)

 

5. What are some of your main sources of creative inspiration?

definitely my personal life and my craving for knowledge, nature and nightwalks, and my struggles with identity and religion/spirituality

 

6. Lastly, feel free you share some examples of your writing!

here are a few lyrics from some of my songs:

I know it's a risk but I've let go of your grasp 
no starlight in the musk of creeks and fog of grass 
deliverances materializing, let delphinus crash tonight 
it's quantifying, electrifying my steps from now on 
I know I'm a fraud or a daunting f*ck sometimes 
I know I have lips of spikes or teeth of mud 
your mussitations are no match for me 
your energy will, maybe, get you somewhere 

(from Lucid Palimpsest, 2019)

 

arrest me, make me feel so good 
address me, feel you really should 
honey, it’s oh so simple, I need a link to your fingertips, yes!
a paralipsis of all your tresses 
as we accumulate greater antimatter, we only expand from here, yeah 
so winsomely, so featly perched, til cynosure I plunge, yeah 

(from Vlontresska, 2018)

 

 

allocate her blessedness to flights of independence 
she’s a messenger in every light 
she’s a winter with her shrines 
complicate her messages 
she walks with all her florid friends 
to gain some looks, books and throws
this queen has spirits in her flaming irises 
oh she has love in traces of dust 
and I said “hey could I be a queen someday” 
I’d love to be a queen where she is

(from Queen A, 2017)

 

 

and here’s a gratuitous electropop bop for all my gays lol 

A musical talent, the multiple instrument playing :clap3: while this is a game focused on lyrics, it's great seeing players who also play instruments too!

Love the artists you listed and the lyrics you highlighted, the taste!

I listened to your first two songs while reading through these, and I'll listen to the other two now, because I really enjoyed them! Both the lyrics, and your voice, I loved listening. Honestly, you remind me somewhat of @Jackson (who just quoted you as well, the coincidence :skull:) who also writes and sings folky music. And this is definitely intended as a compliment, because he has won a song writing game on here before :eddie:

Super interested to see what you submit! Thanks for sharing these and for signing up :heart2:

wanna sign up so bad because I really want to get back into songwriting but the amount of college work I have right now is unreal :weeps: 

The OP is kinda wordy so idk if everybody will have read all of it, but since this is a non elimination game anybody can join or skip a round at any point. So, if you're particularly busy one week, it's fine to not submit and miss a round. Since we will average the scores for every round at the end of the game this will lower your average at the end unfortunately, but you can definitely still take part when you can and don't have to worry when you can't! :heart:

Happy to call people by whatever they prefer. Hanami Blossom would be an amazing real name though.

Had to head out for a while, but it's been wonderful reading all of your questionnaires and getting to know the players a little bit better before the season officially begins. So many exciting new faces, and some returning players from many moons ago too. This eclectic combination is exactly what we were hoping for!

Yes I can already feel the talent and creativity from everyone! This is gonna be fun :duca:

 

:kitty: Oop. Let me trademark that real quick :thing:

 

When I found out about the concept of Hanami it really moved me. The fact that it's a traditional Japanese custom for people to enjoy the transient beauty of flowers, specifically cherry blossoms (yes I got that from Wikipedia :fan:), is so beautiful and fascinating. It really inspired me. And the colour pink is just really pretty.

I figured if we get to learn about you all, it's only fair that you learn a thing or two about us hosts as well!

 

1. Tell us a little about yourself (preferred name, pronouns, etc.)

My name is Sam, however I prefer to be identified as Aurora online. He/him pronouns, 25 years young, and based in Australia. 🇦🇺

 

2. What is your previous experience with song writing?

Throughout my schooling years I enjoyed creative writing (fictional story writing, poems, etc.) and was fascinated with late 2000s/early 2010s pop music, but had never bridged the two before until 2014, when I signed up for ATRL's Platinum Hit: Season 6. It was one of the most rewarding experiences and after placing 2nd, I knew I had found something I really enjoyed, and could only wish to spend the time and energy improving upon. Three years and just like that (:eli:), I had won Platinum Hit: Season 11, however I knew my writing journey was far from over. I've since written some of my favourite and most personal songs, learned a thing or two about music production and recording, and have plans to eventually build my own home music studio and finally bring these creations to life, in addition to working on new projects.

 

3. Who are your favourite song writers?

As silly as it may sound, I grew up on a diet of commercial pop and not a whole lot else, so my first foray into songwriting was... not the most lyrically impressive, to say the least. I'd say I've honestly learned a lot from the other songwriters of ATRL over the years. Kesha and Taylor Swift were early inspirations for me lyrically, but as I progressed I began to look inward and develop my own style and fingerprint... although some might say it was a thesaurus' doing. :fan:

 

4. List some examples of your favourite lyrics and the best written songs in your opinion.

Gosh, this is so hard. Why did you pick this question fountain? :matty: I'm a big believer that you can find amazing lyrics in any given genre, within their context. I'm a big fan of rap lyricism and the art of bar delivery, set ups for punchlines, switching up flow etc. which calls for completely different techniques and writing styles to a commercial pop song, or an alternative folk track. I think there's a lot to be said about Taylor Swift's writing styles and how she can switch it up to fit the mood and genre, be it a country, pop, or folk track, and you can always find plenty of examples of stellar one liners on her records.

 

5. What are some of your main sources of creative inspiration?

I love tasking myself with a challenge, and then adhering to it. Whether it's due to my beginnings within the Platinum Hit format or otherwise, I find having a prompt and a deadline a fantastic way to write. If I know, a) what I am trending toward, and b) when I need to complete it by, that combination of pathway and pressure really unlocks my creative side and helps me write in ways I'm often unable to.

 

6. Lastly, feel free you share some examples of your writing!

I am actually working on an archive of my past material submitted for Platinum Hit and Song of the Season tournaments! While it's not ready yet, you may be able to find some examples through the links in my signature, should you be so inclined to click them! While I know not all of these songs are my best work (especially the earlier ones!), I believe in the preservation of history, and looking back on the old just reminds me how far I have come, and how far I can still go. :duca:

Yes, the sign ups are super promising already!

 

I agree, from what I've just learned of Hanami (from what you've said and a quick google) it's a very beautiful tradition. I think it is something we could learn a lot from honestly, since I think natural beauty is so overlooked a lot of the time, especially trees. They are really some of the most stunning things on the planet and we are just walking around hardly paying them attention! 

 

With the colour pink, honestly being born a male it's hard not to fall into the societal standard that you shouldn't like it, I went through a lot of my life succumbing to that, but as an adult I really readdressed all of that internalisation and realised like you said, pink is super pretty. It's ended up becoming one of my favourite colours now tbh, not just from the way it looks but also in the personal joy of overcoming the rule that you shouldn't enjoy or wear pink. Though in general, I really love all the colours and favouriting them is so hard to do because they all have something special :jonny4:

honestly i remember your writing and it really wasn’t bad at all. and with no eliminations there’s more of a chance to improve and experiment without fear of being cut

You remember my **** from like 7 years ago? I haven’t written anything since shortly after that either. I know I was too literal and conversational, but some of y’all are poets

Thank you :heart2:

Trees are highkey the LEGENDS of the plant family. Flowers die but trees have longevity. The way their roots are all connected in the ground of the Earth and when you chop a tree you can tell how old it is with its rings inside. Whew thankfully humans aren't built like that :jonny:

 

I'm so happy to hear that you feel comfortable with expressing how you truly feel about that. It's quite surreal when you take a step back and see all of the social conditioning. Pink is just another colour, just like all the others. It's sad that society has felt like only certain colours are allowed for certain groups of people. But I'm pleased that that is changing. Life is filled with a kaleidoscope of colours that everyone should be able to enjoy.

It's funny because my actual favourite colour is blue, not pink. :dies: I particularly love turquoise/teal but all shades of blue are stunning. :lakitu: Some are light and airy like the daytime skies, some are deep like the ocean.

The fact that there are trees that have lived for thousands of years :jonnycat: who’s doing it like them?

 

You’ve said it perfectly. It was actually quite a liberating experience, it sounds like such a small thing in hindsight but disregarding societies expectations like that can be really nerve wracking no matter what it is! I suppose it’s a confidence thing too, I feel lucky to be in a place where I feel empowered enough in myself to be able to embrace things like that. Society itself has a long way to go but thankfully things are changing, even small subtle things like this :clap3:

That’s exactly my dilemma, with so many shades there are beautiful versions of every colour so it’s hard not to appreciate them all!

I will answer tomorrow, too! But of course you answered very eloquently, couldn’t have asked for a better co-host :clap3:


————————————

 

Well good night for now, Golden Hitters! Thank you to everybody who signed up today and your participation introducing yourselves with the questionnaire, they were all great to read. It’s been amazing already and I can’t wait for the game to begin in a few days with our first challenge!

 

Here’s a little tease: tomorrow, we’ll be announcing the third member of our judging panel. :heart2:

1. Tell us a little about yourself (preferred name, pronouns, etc.)

- Everyone in here calls me lucky but you can refer to me as luckystrike too! I go by he/him but I'm not bothered by other pronouns! I'm 21 and I'm Mexican so English isn't my native language, but I feel comfy enough with it and I'm currently in uni studying audio engineering and musical production/theory. :gaycat4:

 

2. What is your previous experience with song writing?

I started getting into it on my own just for fun a few years ago, I found it to be a very effective form of therapy/coping for me, then I eventually stumbled upon songwriting games in here, I've participated in 2/3? seasons of Song of the Season where I learned a lot about basic songwriting skills which I didn't have before, and now due to the nature of my career, songwriting is pretty much a big part of it!

 

3. Who are your favourite song writers?

- We're in a pop music forum so I'm obviously gonna say Taylor Swift is one of them :rip: but to mention other people in terms of songwriting; Lorde, Troye Sivan, MUNA, Billie Eilish, Clairo, Ryn Weaver, etc.

 

4. List some examples of your favourite lyrics and the best written songs in your opinion.

- I think a perfect example is my favorite album of all time, The Fool by Ryn Weaver. I think that album is just soooo well written and it has so many of my favorite one liners ever.  

 

5. What are some of your main sources of creative inspiration?

- I used to find it VERY hard to write about non-personal things or stuff I hadn't gone through because I was so used to writing songs based on my life and things I go through but since I started college, I think I've learned how to find inspiration in other things and even write about made up scenarios just for the sake of it, lately I've been very into the idea of thinking about a very good and eye catching song title and just writing a whole song around it, no matter what it ends up being about, so I think it just depends on the type of inspiration I'm feeling

 

6. Lastly, feel free you share some examples of your writing!

- This is a fragment of a song I wrote a while ago called "twilight" that I really like and want to eventually end up making into a real song!!

[verse 1]

what was it about us?

that always kept me so uncertain

that always kept me guessing

if we’d make it to the daylight

what was it about us?

that always kept me up from sleeping

that had me just daydreaming

that you held me through the twilight

 

[pre chorus]

is it the way we know each other?

the way i know you like no other?

we haven’t spoken since last summer

but you still know me like no other

 

[chorus]

and now i’m staring at the pink sky

as it becomes into a twilight

wonder if we will see the daylight

or we will fade into the night sky

let’s just not waste another moment

so hold me tightly through the twilight

until we welcome a new daylight

just like i dreamed about it last night
