    May Lyric Contest

    I’m not saying it’s rigged at all. I think if these people get an extension it should be given to other people as well. A few months ago a great song was disqualified because he didn’t get his score card in time. Why wasn’t it extended for him? All I’m saying is if there are rules put in place than go by them if not what’s the point of having them. No one once said this contest is rigged, hahaha.

    May Lyric Contest

    I think vhannah has a very good point! That is not fair at all. What’s the point of establishing rules only to change them as you feel fit. Not right!

    Collaboration Contest Results - April 2018

    Okay, so last place hurts a bit lol. I’m still very glad that I competed. I thought Quintin Penola did an amazing job on the music. He ran into some trouble when it came to recording his voice. He actually got it fixed after the contest. He has an amazing voice otherwise. You can hear it on his YouTube page with his other songs. I hate to be the one to bring down a talented person like him. However, if I’m fortunate enough to be able to do another collaboration I will definitely take some of the criticism here. I would like to congratulate the winners! You all did a good job! So I’m just going to list my top 7 and why I chose them. Shoes: Love this song. You guys did great with both the lyrics and the music. This song would definitely go in my playlist. In a weird way it has a Peter, Paul, and Mary feeling to it. You guys made it into my top 4. Crocodilly Lily: This one had me laughing the whole way through. I am in love with the voice of the singer. Love the style of the music. You guys came in first place in my mind and that’s how I voted. I’m actually shocked you guys didn’t even make top 4. Just crazy in my opinion. Great song!! Indecision: This song came in at my top 7. Great beat, nice voice, and love the use of words in this song. I Ain’t Looking Back: You placed pretty good BarneyBoy. Everyone just had to hear your lyrics put to music I guess. This song made my top 7. I love the story it tells and I love the guitar solo. Great job to both of you guys. Lucky Man: This song was in my top 7. Great voice, music, and the lyrics were hilarious. Loved it! Walk A Mile: This song made my top 4. I love the message in this song and the voice is just amazing. Unbelievable pitch!! Great job! SoleMates: You guys made my top 4. In my mind you guys came in 2nd place. I just love the very weird uniqueness of the voice and words. Love the music, it makes me want to get up and dance. I want to know whose singing. The voice fits the music very well. I actually already had my top 7 written out but your song popped up at the end and knocked someone completely off my list. Amazing job!! It was very very hard to choose. There were so many that were so close. I think everyone came out a winner in the end just for putting yourselves out there. Being vulnerable is hard to do. I can’t wait till the next collaboration to see what everyone comes up with. Oh and thanks to the 3 people that did like our song and voted for us! 3 out of 31 isn’t bad, it just means we have a very selective audience lmao!
  4. Good luck! Please share when you come up with more.
  5. Just amazing!!! Thank you for sharing this song. I love how you have it an old folk like story sound to it. And I love how you wrote a song redeeming a man of being falsely accused of murder. Giving him his justice even in death, letting his true story be heard. Really good song and story!! I still think it would make an amazing musical.

    March Lyrics Contest

    Congratulations to the winners! Everyone who submitted did a great job just for putting themselves out there. It’s very hard to let your wall down and be vulnerable and share your artistic lyrics. I thought there were a lot of great songs. We have some talented lyricists. Thank you Ironknee for your kind words, it means a lot that you took the time to say something nice about my lyrics. I had a lot of favorites this time around and Ironknee “Lost In A Thought” was one of them. Paul as usual you did an excellent job with “I Come Here Everyday”, I loved “The Memory of You”, “If I’d Found You First”, “The Rain” which was very poetic. So so so many good ones. I can’t wait for next month!

    Words forgotten: a child's lament

    Wow I really like the message in these lyrics. It seems really long for a song though. I could be wrong I’m just an amateur but maybe you could find a different format. There are other people on here that can give you some better feedback that have way more experience. Overall I really like the flow and the message.

    Black Sheep

    Yeah, JazzRaptor pretty much said it. Right now it needs song form. I would look up all the different types of formats and play with your words and see which format they work best in. I can kind of see it being something like Peter, Paul, and Mary’s “Don’t Laugh At Me” song. I mean it doesn’t have to be folk but it would be a good song to look at if you want to kind of get a feel on a bullying song and the format they use. Best of luck!

    Home in the Stars - LOCKED

    I think you did a great job on these lyrics. I definitely like the rewrites on your verses. It’s crazy how changing even the simplest words makes such an impact. I like “desperately needing to land” over “searching for somewhere to land” searching just kind of sounds leisurely. Where as desperately shows the panic in your situation. Also I prefer “somewhere suitable” Over “last one suitable” because you lost communication so you really don’t know that that’s the last place. I’m with Paul on that it reminds me of ground control to Major Tom. Good job!👍

    My Soul In The Breeze

    You know I was kind of with Barneyboy on this at first until I read Donnas and Ty’s remarks. Than I felt really dumb at how clear the message really was and I hadn’t seen it. It is a great write and I think Donnas right on how it really fits for poetry. I would love to hear it to the music you wrote.

    You Will Never Know Her

    Patty, you gave some WONDERFUL advice. I really see the story coming out. Thank you so much for your help. Barneyboy, as usual my worst critique, but I like that about you. As far as a few misspelled words (always embarrassing) it was extremely late at night and had several projects going on in my brain but thanks for the corrections. Bemused I thought meant confused. As in he loved the drink more and someone who is constantly drinking just causes confusion and they lose who they are. But after going over it you’re right it doesn’t work. Thank you guys all for looking it over for me. I will definitely get working on it and try to post my next rewrite soon.
  13. Well you did amazing on the details that you got on the facts of why it couldn’t be him. Also your lines “Fearing insanity, He died alone” someone said that wasnt relevant. Well, it certainly is! It plays into the title of “POOR John Druitt”. Overall really good!

    Sleeping Around

    I don’t believe this lyric is finished. It seems rushed and just thrown together. You start out with saying you don’t make threats but then the second line contradicts that. It is basically a threat. You pick up a girl that I’m assuming was kicked out for cheating. You didn’t really clarify there. Then you get upset because I guess she’s cheating on you and you leave her with two bags and a key but you changed the locks because she’s eating and leaving dishes. Yeah, I feel like you’re leaving a lot of the story out. What is the girls story. Why was she kicked out on the street? Why did you decide to pick her up? I do think it’s funny how you leave her the key but you changed the locks. That’s hilarious! I look forward to seeing what you end up coming up with for this song. I think it’s got potential to be a great song.

    You Will Never Know Her

    Anyone can get drunk off cognac LMAO it’s liquor! And yes that’s exactly what he did was sign his writes over so he wouldn’t have to pay child support. I’m already trying to rewrite it so the whole story kind of plays out this time instead of bits n peices although it makes the song a lot longer. Boy you really love tearing apart every inch of my lyrics lol youve done this to three of my lyrics. Seeing that you seem to be so invested into making comments and tearing my lyrics up word for word maybe you’ll look at what I’m playing around with and tell me what you think! I’d like to get advice from my worst critique! This is what I’ve played with so far. It is way way off from being ready. This is a complete rough draft and need to get the meter fitting. Rough draft Barneyboy..... hit me with your best shot! You Will Never Know Her(V1) She was full of life, our beautiful little girl. With a smile on her face, she always loved to twirl. You would come and go whenever you pleased the only way to hear about you was asking on the streets.After you missed three of her birthdays The smile on her face started fading away So I packed all of our bags and walked out the door. And told you that we couldn’t be doing this no more. (V2) The days turned to weeks and weeks into months.You did not come to look for us not even once.You knew where to find us, so that’s no excuse you loved the drink more you’ve become so bemuse.Eventually A man came along who took care of us and made me his wife, And promised that our girl would have a better life.You didn’t try to stop it, It was your easy way out.No more court ordered child support for you to pay out.(Pre-chorus)He gave her animal kisses as he tucked her in at night. Learned how to put her ponytails up just right. He Told her he loved her every day and promised her he would never walk away. (Chorus)He knows that she prefers blue over pink and that coke is her favorite drink. He never missed one of her recitals and loved to hear her play. You will never know her like he does because you let her walk away.(V3) Now that she is almost all grown you want her back. You must be crazy and drinking too much cognac. You haven’t been around for any milestonesand you show up out of Know where completely stoned. You haven’t changed yourself a bit, your still the guy who quit and split. You have missed out and now it is too lateThere is nothing, left for us at all to debate.(Pre-chorus)He gave her animal kisses as he tucked her in at night. Learned how to put her ponytails up just right. He Told her he loved her every day and promised her he would never walk away. (Chorus)He knows that she prefers blue over pink and that coke is her favorite drink. He never missed one of her recitals and loved to hear her play. You will never know her like he does because you let her walk away.(Bridge)You never gave her any of your timeNow the memory of you has faded to the back of her mind. she is no longer your little girl She’s the center of another mans worldThere is no going back, It is what it is.And now her heart will always be his.(Pre-chorus)He gave her animal kisses as he tucked her in at night. Learned how to put her ponytails up just right. He Told her he loved her every day and promised her he would never walk away. (Chorus)He knows that she prefers blue over pink and that coke is her favorite drink. He never missed one of her recitals and loved to hear her play. You will never know her like he does because you let her walk away.
