Music to My Eyes XV
From Spin the Bottle:

Dear Singer/Songwriter/Comedian,

I'm the talent coordinator for a TV pilot for VH1 called "NewsJam" (from the creator of "Pop-Up Video") which will feature singer-songwriters delivering amusing songs about the big news topics of the week. Think "Schoolhouse Rock" meets Tom Lehrer's "That Was The Week That Was" or a musical version of Comedy Central's "Daily Show."

The assignment is to write and record (low-tech home recording is fine) a 2-3 minute song on one of the two following topics:

1. Awards Shows
2. J.Lo & Ben

If your song is chosen for the demo/pilot, you'll get $1500...but more importantly, you'll get entered into the stable of "musical correspondents" who will contribute on the actual weekly show (if it's picked up). For now, we're not planning on showing artists' faces...(but that may change)...rather, we're turning their songs into cartoons, bouncing ball montages, or other yet-to-be-invented visual offerings. The deadline is April 16th on a CD if you're interested (with lyrics e-mailed to me).

Please feel free to call me with any questions and if you know of any other singer/songwriters who might be right for this project, please let me know.
