Hi, music fans. BeckEye from The Pop Eye here, ready to show off my monkey mixology mastery! Since I’m a three-timer in Splotchy’s now-legendary Green Monkey Music Project, I’ve been granted the opportunity – nay, the right! – to take over his blog and helm the latest installment.
I’m pleased to announce that Volume 10 of the GMMP will be the Battle of the Sexes Mix. Since I’ve noticed that a lot of very enthusiastic people have been shut out of previous mixes, I’m going to be a benevolent ruler and allow 10 participants on this go-round. Each participant will offer up 5 songs each, all of which must include a person’s name in the title. Following the “battle of the sexes” theme, half of the songs will be about girls and the other half about boys.
RULE #1: Each participant must stick to one gender throughout his/her list. This is a battle, soldiers! You’ve gotta pick sides! If you pick boy titles, all five songs must be about boys. No slipping an “Oh Sheila” in there. (This is just to ease my highly anal-retentive mind and ensure that we end up with the same number of songs for each gender.)
RULE #2: Only one gender per song allowed. No ditties about Jack and Diane or ballads of John and Yoko.
RULE #3: All titles must include first names. No Misters, Misses or Doctors allowed. For example, Yoshimi is welcome to battle the pink robots, as long as Mr. Roboto is not one of them.
I’m not going to assign anyone a gender, so it’ll be a first-come, first-served situation. If you want to play, just enter your list of five songs in the comments section of this post and you’re in. Everyone will need to keep an eye on the comments to know how many slots for each sex are left. If anyone mistakenly posts a list for a gender that’s already reached its 25-song limit, either Splotchy or I will let him/her know that they need to revise or withdraw.
This should be a lot of fun, because there are a ton of these songs out there. I’m excited to see what you all come up with. Big thanks to Splotchy for hosting one of the best music-sharing programs on the Internetz. Let’s hear it for the boy! Let’s give the boy a hand!
*By the way…I kind of lied about letting 10 people play. There will be 10 slots available but I’ve already taken one and one is reserved for Splotchy, so there are really only 8 left. But that still leaves plenty of room!
Participants are all signed up!
