Collaboration Phase This is a work in progress. Collaborators are busy busy!
Project Type: Public
Started: Jan 15, 2022
Description: I wrote this song as part of I Heart Songwriting Club. The theme for this particular week was Bronze, and I chose to write the song in the Bossa Nova genre. My first thought for this week was of athletes or nations that finish third at the Olympic Games. As such, they are awarded a bronze medal for their efforts. This took me back to my school days when we would have athletics carnivals.
Project brief: I have uploaded a full mix with an instrumental backing track that I made, but I'm wanting to replace this with collaborators from this site. I'm looking for bass, guitar, piano, strings, drums and a hint of saxophone. I have done quite a lot of this kind of thing in the past, playing along to a backing track and then removing it once enough submissions have been accepted. In addition to the full mix, I have also uploaded the instrumental backing track on its own with a helpful count-in. Feel free to download this and play along to it, then I will make a new mix with all collaborators' tracks along with my lead vocal. Have fun!

VERSE 1 I'm a bronzed Aussie But not like King Wally Who stands outside the football ground I've come third again I'm starting a trend Although my style is technically sound CHORUS Why is it so bad to finish in third There's three in this race, I find it absurd Third is the same as last, you see It is so embarrassing for me VERSE 2 They went easy on me As if to decree You can't keep up, so we'll run in reverse They'd turn back around And then hit the ground Near the end, so the effect was adverse CHORUS Why is it so bad to finish in third There's three in this race, I find it absurd Third is the same as last, you see It is so embarrassing for me ENDING What if there are more people taking part I may very well have a change of heart It's actually good to finish top three It's much better piece of mind for me It's much better piece of mind for me
