Post a Song
Post your Dean songs!
No matter what shape they're in, from written on scrap paper or yodeled
in the bath tub, to sung by Deaniacs on a street corner, to live performances,
or studio recordings, as long as they say great things about Howard Dean,
Songs For Dean wants folks to get to hear and sing them!
You can post your
song's audio and/or lyrics Need to get your voice into a file? We can
help. Just email us. Voice
quality is not important. Getting out the message is.
We will have self-posting
ability in the future but for now just email
us your Dean song. The audio can be mp3, wav or mov files or you can
send us a link to your song's audio or lyrics if it is already posted
elsewhere. Please include the title, author, comments, and any contact
and copyright information that you might want posted including a web site
or email address.
In order to offer
folks with dial-up internet connections a chance to hear the songs without
a long download time, we will also post a version of your song's audio
that is converted to RealAudio, even though the quality isn't as good
Also, besides people
downloading songs for personal listening and singing, we encourage Dean
supporters to make use of the songs at Dean events. People have had great
sing alongs at house parties. At meetups, folks have enjoyed the spirit
and variety of the Dean songs. And the songs have added some fun, upbeat
and inspirational energy to tabling and leafleting.
In order to respect
people's copyright, if we recognize a song as someone else's work, we
will require permission from the copyright holder before posting it. Also,
we will remove any material which a copyright holder requests us to remove.
