Sing Your Troubles Away...

This appeals to me - sort of like that classic, "The Sunny Side of the Street" - but it's a contest, with YouTube, and viral marketing, and you stand to win $5,000 for your talent and your troubles.

Here's how it works:

You pick a problem from the GotTrouble.com directory ... Ok, I just got a parking (meter) ticket the other day ... I'm innocent, your Honor, innocent! So, if I was entering this contest, I'd devote my talents to writing and singing about traffic tickets...

That's the first step in entering GotTrouble.com’s Video Promotion. Next, I've got to write a song, words and music, and shoot a 3-minute or under video of me singing it ...

All right. Here are four lines of lyrics I just came up with, for starters...


Just got a traffic ticket in the big bad city
I'm innocent, innocent! and more's the pity
How can I prove that I came to a stop?
When it's just my word against the cop?


Next, I'll write the rest of the lyrics, put some music to it, get my wife to record me (she has a nice video app) on her camera. Then upload to YouTube, fill out the registration form, and-

Hey, even if I don't win, I'm having a lot more fun with the Sing Your Troubles Away Video Contest than going to traffic court...
