about

Songs written for Spintunes 8.

From the SpinTunes FAQ:

What is SpinTunes?

SpinTunes is an online songwriting competition where people submit original songs they write to meet challenges handed out by a panel of judges.

Can I enter a previously written song?

No. Even if you have a previously written song, that happens to meant the given challenge, you should not enter it. Besides the prompt given for each round, part of the challenge IS the deadline. Doing everything from scratch in the same time frame as everyone else is the only fair way to enter. If your song is previously unreleased I would have no way of knowing if you cheated, so we rely on the honor system.

How do I win?

The competition has 4 rounds of challenges, and you are judged by a panel of judges each round. If you can make it to the last round without being eliminated, and then win that last round...you win.

What do I win?

Pride. We do this for the love of music...not for money or fancy trophies

about

Heather Miller Fairfield, Iowa

I love music and I'm so grateful for all the gifts it has brought to my life. In May 2011, I took a huge leap of faith and moved from Iowa down to Austin for a year, to study at Rubicon Artist Development and make my first EP called "Anchor". I'm now back in Iowa, CD in hand, excited to share it with the world! ... more

Track Name: Greatest Generation
My arms are tired,
been carrying this guitar all day
My feet are sore,
been walking for quite a ways
But I know what I have to do
I have to sing my song for you

I mostly know you from the Christmas and the Birthday cards
Your perfect cursive wishing me well
I understand it’s partly distance, partly circumstance
That I don’t know all the stories that you have to tell

My arms are tired,
been carrying this guitar all day
My feet are sore,
been walking for quite a ways
But I know what I have to do
I have to sing my song for you

You played your keyboard at the old folks homes
and most of the audience was younger than you
you always liked to say that music kept you young
I hope I live to be at least 97 too

My arms are tired,
been carrying this guitar all day
My feet are sore,
been walking for quite a ways
But I know what I have to do
I have to sing my song for you

The last time I saw you, I sang you my songs
You closed your eyes and bobbed your head
and even sang along
You were a member of the Greatest Generation
And even though you are gone
I still look to you for inspiration

My arms are tired,
been carrying this guitar all day
My feet are sore,
been walking for quite a ways
But I know what I have to do
I have to sing my song for you
Track Name: You Make Me
You make my skin itch
I can’t stand your breath across my cheek
You make me weak
You make me weak
You make me weak

You make my days dark
I’m not sure I’ll see the sun again
too mean a friend
too mean a friend
too mean a friend

You’re so cold and unfeeling
Blind to all the pain you are dealing

You make my feet numb
Then you steal my sense of solid ground
You knock me down
You knock me down
You knock me down

You make my lips crack
and you even make them bleed sometimes
too cruel a crime
too cruel a crime
too cruel a crime

I can’t escape you, you’re everywhere I turn
But you don’t notice me or care

You’re so cold and unfeeling
Blind to all the pain you are dealing

You make my skin itch
I can’t stand your breath across my cheek

You make my days dark
I’m not sure I’ll see the sun again

You make my feet numb
Then you steal my sense of solid ground

You make my lips crack
and you even make them bleed sometimes

I can’t escape you, you’re everywhere I turn
But you don’t notice me or care

You’re so cold and unfeeling
Blind to all the pain you are dealing

You make my skin itch
You make my days dark
You make my feet numb
You make my lips crack

You make my skin itch
You make my days dark
You make my feet numb
You make my lips crack
