Andrew Lynch - "Happy Human" (Winner of Rift Magazine's 36 Hour Songwriting Contest)
Over the weekend, Rift Magazine held their seventh 36 hour songwriting contest, in which many local singer-songwriters have 36 hours to write a song, then perform it in front of an audience. This year's topic was "The Meaning of Life," (I subscribed to Brain Candy's notion that "life is short, life is shit, and soon it will be over") and based upon the videos uploaded onto the How Was The Show blog, the participants did more than an admirable job with the subject.
But, of course, there can be only one winner, and you can see his efforts at the top of the post. "Happy Human" by Andrew Lynch recalls distinctly another Andrew--Bird, that is. Watch the video at the top of the post.
