Interested in creating music videos? Here is a place to get feedback on the video itself. If you want feedback on the song, post in Songs Feedback (or both places if you want feedback on the song AND the video).

A place to sell yourself. New CD? Website? Let us know and discuss here. NOTE: Any post made here does not imply any recommendation by Muse Songwriters - in fact, we probably have no idea what is being advertised.

I'm OK with any site anyone uses to store their music - I have no special love for Soundcloud. Some sites will embed their player easier in posts here but I have no control over that (it's a function of the forum software)
If you go to your song on Soundcloud and copy the address from the address box in your browser, you simply need to paste that address into your post here (just like any other link). It should all happen automatically.
I second the votes for
"Hello Darkness my old friend" Simon and Garfunkel
"I read the news today oh boy" Beatles
On the morning after John Lennon's death, the editorial started with that line. It hit hard.
Other opening lines I really like are
'In the early morning rain, with a dollar in my hand" Early Morning Rain Bob Dylan
"Little Darlin, its been a long cold lonely winter" Beatles Here comes the Sun
lots more, just cant think of them now.
I am completely computer illiterate so would I have the soundcloud page and the muse page up at the same time I presume? So how would I prepare the muse page for the 'copy' procedure? Do I just need to be in create new topic on song critiques? Do I need to press any other option on the muse page? Also awkward flicking between 2 sites. I tried to have a practice on soundcloud but I didn't have anywhere to copy to so nothing happened, I presume this is normal?! (I thought it might have copied to my computer). Will it just magically copy over if I have both pages up? I doubt it. Also incredibly fiddly getting to the copy part- I have to click a minute specific part of my mouse and takes several atempts (my laptop new and works perfectly). If someone could give me the simplest way to get a soundcloud song with the picture part to muse website that would be great. This seems simple to you but it's a nightmare for me, when I'd literally just got the hang of everything. I think this may be one step too far for me 😑. I guarantee it won't work if I'm doing it.
