you can cover whatever you want warehouse.

Traditionally this has required a few songs from people since we run it as a tournament (how many depends on the number) with new songs each round. But if people were not up for that (we could and probably should really increase the amount of time between rounds compared to what we've done in the past) we could explore other options

I have zero musical ability. And less than zero technical aptitude. Even if I could perform a cover, I'm not sure how I'd record it and/or get it on the internet. But, for what it's worth, I'd be really interested in listening/voting/participating in this thread.

there have been some really nice songs that came out of these in the past.

I could probably be in. What do most of these involve? Are people doing overhauls on tunes or would a live take or stripped down version suffice.

As in, like, write a poem based on a song.
