New Songwriting Contest

Eastlake, Ohio (PressExposure) April 15, 2011 -- The MusicTrackMeet is able to pay an extraordinarily high 50% royalty rate to contest entrants (as prizes) because the contest website takes the place of - The record label, the "store front", the publishers, and all middle-management people.

Every contest entrant is challenged to take one given set of lyrics and give them a melody in the song style of their choice. Songwriters have until the end of July to record and enter their versions of the humorous and controversial song, Passing Lane Hoggers into the contest.

On August 3rd the MusicTrackMeet will announce thirty three songs (three songs in each of eleven song styles) to become available for purchase on the contest website. Along with the 50% cut on each sale, every download also represents a vote for that contestant. The best selling song in each song style will be declared the winners. These eleven songs will be included on the 2011 Winners CD. Winners will also receive a cut on the sale of this CD. All of these royalty payments (for all thirty three of the phase 2 entrants) will go on indefinitely via the website archives. Contest prizes don't end with the conclusion of the contest! In fifty years there may still be people downloading, Passing Lane Hoggers.

People love to vote in music contests, and the subject of this song is such a common pet peeve, that this song should bounce around the social networking avenues in a big way. Which should translate into a lot of traffic on The MusicTrackMeet website.

If you're a musician, and you record, Passing Lane Hoggers for this contest, the worst case scenario would be - A recording of a song you can amuse your friends and family with for the rest of your life. The best case scenario is undetermined, but it could be two large royalty checks per year, for the rest of your life.

About The MusicTrackMeet TuneSmith Showdown will be posting an on-going graphic showing how all of the songs are selling. It should be interesting to see which song styles are most purchased.

The success of this contest will quickly lead to another contest to enter the lyrics for next year's contest. Plus another contest to produce the best video for the song.
