I posted an idea here a few weeks ago, and I was just wondering if people were still up for it.

There are several talented mefite songwriters around.

Yeah, and that post you linked to was right before Music opened, I think a lot more people came out of the closet as musicians here after that.

I'm up for it. It would be great to have something to revive Music, it's been twitching lately, I think.

The original idea as firmed up in 14180 got about half built at the time, and then some other things started eating up mefi-dev time and attention (TravelFilter, primarily).

So don't despair, it's a-coming. I'm still pretty excited about the idea myself.

If I can find a microphone, I might be up for it. =D

very cool idea--start with a one-off contest and see whether it sells?

(and i'll do lyrics if someone else does the music part--can teams enter?)

Sounds like quite a hoo haa! And that's good.

I'm not a musician, but I would love for one of you incredibly talented people to create a song about, say, the McDonald's site that answers every question.

cortex: Friggin' Water? Ha, just kidding! This is right on and so much better than having to produce an entire album or novel. Woo Hoo!

Ooh, sidebar on the front page even!
