    Smile Garritan on American Idol - Let's Make It Happen

    Hey GPO Friends ,

    I have heard that American Idol will be running a song contest this year to find the songs for the Finalists to sing in the final show. I am working on a song that I believe will be perfect for the show. I am a fairly new user of GPO and not an orchestrator by any stretch, but I am a pretty decent songwriter.

    So here's the deal... I am looking for a fellow GPO'er to work with on the orchestral parts for the song. SO...

    Are you the next David Campbell that nobody has ever heard of?
    Are you a sucker for a killer power ballad???
    Do you truly believe that a very commercially appealing song can also be a great song period and artistically relevant???

    If you do...
    If you can write scores that make people instantly cry...
    If you are great to work with and comfortable with collaborating via the Internet...
    If you are positive, upbeat, and know that you are good enough to compete with the best in the world...
    ...then let's make history and win the first American Idol song contest...

    I don't know if I'm crazy to post this or not, but I had to try... Thank you in advance to all of you respond

    Songwriting 101. Avoid songwriting contests unless they are for something like a new state song.

    But if there is no rip off entrance fee then why not.

    Looking for some American Idol song ideas? Here's a little something I've been working on in Garritan's JABB...

    ... if you're not up on perhaps the greatest female songwriter who ever lived, and don't know how the vocal goes, here's a drop-in:

    Personally I think a Laura Nyro song is long overdue on American Idol. And those women they got this year are awsome. Any one of them could kick butt with some Nyro material.

    That show cracks me up, but i don't ever watch it. A few years ago, when the show first started, I was changing channels and came across some contestant on that show singing. It seemed obvious it was some kind of contest, and the kid singing was great. I said man this kid is awesome he's gonna win this thing. Then Mr. Jackass, or whatever his name is, started riduculing him and saying all kinds of ugly things. I never tuned in again after that. Very weird show!

    Yeah, I don't watch either. I've tried a few times but it just takes me back to when I was a kid and having to be in talent show hell! I just can't stomach it.
