A just-for-fun songwriting contest finally spurred me to bring forth my first original JABB compositionl; the topic was "Write a theme song for the movie Snakes on a Plane".
If the jazz-knowledgeable members of the forum would be willing to give me some critiques, I'd be quite grateful (I'm working my way through Gary Lindsay's "Jazz Arranging Techniques", but I know I've got a long way to go).
Snakes on a Plane! (MP3, 2:07, 3.5 MB)
Warning: the lyrics are definitely not work-safe; if you object to strong language, please don't listen to it. There are also some minor spoilers in the lyrics (character names and a few situations, including the fact that there are certain creatures on a certain kind of vehicle).
