HMHS 168 - There's a lot you can do in one minute

It's a short attention span home songwriting extravaganza. 10 songs in around 10 minutes.

Keep an eye on the forums, and the forum off-topic area. Read those music magazines. Remember the "Place Name" challenge and send your one minute songs in if you have them - try it's it's extremely liberating.

Let us know if you want to add lyrics and vocals to Dave's tune.

Budumdum - Grandma Melonhead (1:25)
Til The End - Sean John Tully Cracks (1:13)
Dumbtimes I Feel Some - Grandma Melonhead (1:00)
Ugly Joe - The Tones (1:18)
OK I'm So Ugly - Melonhead (1:24)
