So last week Ryan and I wrote five songs in five days. It was part of the fourth annual 5in5 challenge hosted by the ever-cool Daniel White. The details and rules can be found here. If you write songs, or wish you wrote songs, then you should really check it out next year. We have participated every year so far and have a love/hate relationship with the challenge. It’s a week of late nights, neglected children and spousal contempt. But it feels so good to get that song writing muscle moving.
Here’s all five of the songs we wrote last week. Writing five songs in five days is not the same thing as writing five HIT songs in five days. But maybe you might like one or two. If you have a favorite, let us know below!
