Aleve's "Good Moves Worth Singing About!" Contest

I'll never pass up a chance to make a fool of myself on stage, and I enjoy lyric/song writing, so I thought I'd give this contest a try.

I wrote, sang and submitted 4 songs today, and I'll probably do 2 more before the contest ends (June 30th). M80 is having a related contest. Here's what I've sent in so far (complete with spoken introductions).

I'm Shane and I love hiking with my son, thanks to Aleve.

My son and I are hiking, he's moving pretty fast
with pain in my knees, I'll probably get there last.
I reached in the backpack and pulled out Aleve
And now my boy is having trouble keeping up with me.

2 (a variation of 1).
I'm Shane and I love hiking with my son, thanks to Aleve.

My son and I were hiking, we're half-way to the falls
with aching knees I could hardly move at all
I reached in the backpack and pulled out Aleve
In minutes we were on the trail, and I was pain-free.

I'm Shane and Aleve helps me spend quality time with my son.

My son and I were playing catch, throwing around a ball.
With pain in my shoulders I could hardly move at all.
I said, "Just a minute, son. Aleve will make it right."
In minutes I was moving fine, and we played through the night.

I'm Shane and moving day was pretty painless, thanks to Aleve.

Moving day is over. My wife and I are sore. There were...
boxes full of books, beds, dressers and drawers.
Tired, but aching, we both took Aleve.
We made our bed on the floor and rested pain-free.

I have tried numerous times to post a video of myself singing these songs, but youtube keeps breaking my video for some reason. I'll keep trying. Until then, enjoy, M80.

I got an email this morning from Aleve saying my songs have been approved and submitted. You can check them out here, here, here, and here.

Awesome, bro! What's the prize if you win?!

$2500 from Aleve plus a chance to record your song professionally and hear it on the radio, which I didn't win—the winner would have been notified by now. I did win the prize from M80 though; a $15 iTunes gift card, and a little ipod playing karaoke machine. The boys love singing with it.
