    March 2018 Song Contest

    My first song contest ever is over!!!!! I thought I would be crushed if I didn't win lol! I in fact feel grateful. Thank you and congratulations to everyone who participated. It's not always easy putting yourself out there. Big congratulates to ScenesFromPalacio. I don't remember how I scored it but after listening to it a couple of more times I think it's cool that I have a song in the same contest as your song. I can't believe your a bedroom recording artist. Billie Joe Armstrong once said something like there are many people who can play and write songs better than he could (he is no slouch of a songwriter either) but they only play in their bedrooms so you never hear them. If you are indeed a bedroom songwriter then you are also proof of his words. Nice song. I definitely will listen to more. Extra thank you Moso, Eric Borgos, RoadDog, and Oswlek for your thoughts. I appreciate them and they have encouraged me to continue working on the song. Thank you PaulCanuck for hosting. This has been such a great experience for me. Thanks!

    The Trouble is...

    Paul, these lyrics are fantastic. I believe very high level stuff. I would like to hear this recorded by a great vocalist. No offense please. I like your singing but these lyrics could go places. Chills! thanks for sharing

    I dont know anymore

    Wow Boy, you can't sing like Dylan can't sing, or Jimi, or Joe Cocker, or Tom Waits or Lou Reed. Many "good" singers would love to be able to emote like you do. This song gives me goose bumps! I'm not a lyrics listening person so I have no idea what you are singing but it hits me right in the heart. All of it! I love the bizarre music. I hope you have more!

    Captivating! Your voice, the guitar draws me in. I want to hear more! I've got no critique here although I agree with the suggestions but also love your song as is.

    Ode to Pinecrest

    Brettles...beautiful voice and the guitar playing is really nice as well. I really like the imagery. I agree that your song could use a bit of melodic variation. You have a great voice I want to hear more of it in this song. I look forward to listening to more of your work.

    Wishes

    Thanks Murphster. This site is so helpful now that I actually use it. I signed up years ago but just observed. lol. Thanks for the confidence booster too. Thank you Brettles. It's funny you mention losing interest by the end of the song. Just as I was recording it my friend suggested it needed another verse or something. Originally there was only three so I resung the first verse again. Right idea...wrong lyrics... Given the amazing feedback from everyone I will rewrite a new verse. Thank you again. Short Order... I am sure there are lots of notes sung off key. I am more of an emotive singer rather than a technical one...if there is such a thing but I hear what you are saying and will definitely try to improve. Thank you for the advice and the flattery. Nameless, Thank you for your input. The apprehension came from the fact that my wife and I were separated for months which included our first anniversary. . I lived in the North and she was still finishing college.

    Thank you Tex. Oswlek, Thank you for pointing out the singing with the down beats. I had never even considered this. It is something I will work on both on this song and others. Thank you again.
  8. Here is an older song that I rerecorded. I wrote it for my wife on our first anniversary. Wishes If I had just one wish You know that I'd wish for you to know that I I will always love you It's times like this that I wish I believed in wishes If I had just one pick You know that I'd pick you to spend my life with always just trying to love you It's times like this that I wish I believed in wishes It's times like this that I wish I believed in wishes You know that it's so hard When I am so far from you It tears me up inside and out I just need on kiss from you If I had just one wish You know that I'd wish for you to know that I I will always love you It's times like this that I wish I believed in wishes It's times like this that I wish I believed in wishes

    Hi. Here is my contest entry. Written and performed by SlowD. Where do the Cold Winds Blow? Where do the cold winds blow when they've got no home Where do the cold winds blow when they've got no home I don't think I want to know I just don't think I want to know Where did my little buddy go Don't anybody know Where did our little buddy go Don't anybody know I don't think I want to know I don't think I'm strong enough to know I need to believe that their better I need to believe that they are free and I need to believe that their better better and free Where do the angels go before their halo's grow Where do the angels go before their halo's grow I don't think that I'm meant to know I don't think that we are meant to know but I need to believe that their better I need to believe that they are free and I need to believe that their better better and free Where do the colds winds blow when they've got no home.
  11. Hello, I recorded this song last week at a friends house. I am looking to see what people think. This is a song about my life living in Canada's North, Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. It's a hard place to live. Where do the Cold Winds Blow? Where do the cold winds blow when they've got no home Where do the cold winds blow when they've got no home I don't think I want to know I just don't think I want to know Where did my little buddy go Don't anybody know Where did our little buddy go Don't anybody know I don't think I want to know I don't think I'm strong enough to know I need to believe that their better I need to believe that they are free and I need to believe that their better better and free Where do the angels go before their halo's grow Where do the angels go before their halo's grow I don't think that I'm meant to know I don't think that we are meant to know but I need to believe that their better I need to believe that they are free and I need to believe that their better better and free Where do the colds winds blow when they've got no home.

    The Story of a Hermit

    I listen to the whole song and I am not sure why. This is not my kind of music. The piano is okay. Your voice is okay. BUT synergistically BAM! Put it all together and I have to say I really liked it a lot. I should not have liked the pizza line, sung out of tune too, as much as I did but I laughed out loud...in the kind of "what was that" way...meaning I will have to listen to the song again to satisfy my urge. This is the kind of song that seems to come from a really good place, an honest place. It made me feel good. I will definitely listen for more. Thank you. BTW second listen was more satisfying then the first!

    Lonely guitar track

    DanJames...your link is not working for me.
  14. Hello all, I am just wondering if anyone is interested in writing music together. I am a guitar player who likes to write and sing songs. I am not prolific or uber talented but I have a lot of passion for music and I am a good person. If anyone one, or more is interested awesome. I look forward to hearing from you. btw I didn't put a style or anything because I am all over the place.
