Eyes in the Dark
Your Band Name

This is formed from your band name (not including "the"), all lower case, with no spaces, an underscore, and an acronym of the title (or in the case of one word titles, the title), followed, of course, by a period and the file extension "mp3". MP3's only! We do not post .m4a or other file types. More info in the faq.

You wouldn't think we would need to say this, but use the actual title as shown and your actual band name, kapeesh?

Here's how it works. Click the names to listen, then check the boxes next to your favorites to vote for as many as you like, but at least two. Check all the good ones, don't check any of the bad ones, then press the vote! button to register all of your votes at once. One round of voting per fight per customer, please.
how it works
Song Fight! is a free online songwriting competition.
We provide a title, you write a new song for the title and email us an MP3 by the deadline. We post the songs, listeners vote for a winner. There is no prize. See the FAQ for full details.

COVID-19 Global Pandemic
Please stay safe and stay healthy and follow all your local/regional/national government guidelines and mandates. We'll be trying to offer shorter, more frequent fights for folks who want to spend more time making music. Also check the boards as the community has already started organizing side fights. For now we're going to hope Song Fight Live 2020 will still happen but we'll keep monitoring the situation and announce if there are any developments. Song love!
