    We are 13 years old! We went in to operations in 2001! Some of you have been right here all this time. We are growing old together as a family. LOL So Mike S mentioned doingn something with some of the old threads and I thought it may be cool to do a poll to find out what your favorite threads are and why.

      Have you RE-Written a song that has already been critiqued in one of the "Lyric Forums?" Please try to wait at least ONE WEEK before posting it in the Re-Write forum. This will help ensure that you get Fresh Feedback from the members; and, to make sure you give yourself a chance to set aside your lyric for a few days after a re-write and come back to it with a fresh perspective before you post it again. Be sure to post the first song version along with your Re-write for comparison!
