  1. January 2018 Song Contest

    Velvet Dream All music/lyrics Steve Ison All american endless streetThe 4th of JulySee the people dance in the heatas you go byin the blink of an eyeThe strangeness of everyoneOut here at the showAll smiling and then they're gonebut you'll never knowwhats happening belowas they come & goYeh yeh yeh yehWith the tourists behind you& your home light to guide youNow you gotta free that velvet dream& do it, do it, do it, do itWith the winter nights fading& the summertime wakingYou just wanna be where love could be& do it, do it, do it, do itSee the dust that blowsthe news from yesterdayAll the stores are closed& the people've gone awayFeel the sun that burnsthe distance in your eyesIt's good to be alonethere's freedom in the skiesOh my precious girlI loved you like a childAlong these empty streetsall my feelings running wildWon't you dance with me ?I'll be your valentine& this can be our homeA dream that's yours & mine..
  2. The prosaic or the poetic ?

    Efficient work-a-day pragmatism or creative imagination ? Is being a dullard the new magician ?
  3. October Song Contest - RESULTS!

    Well done to the winners..The quality of music was very high in this one..Thanx alot to Paul for running it too
  4. November 1+1 Winners Announced

    Weeping Angels Music/Lyrics -Steve Ison Blessed with the heart of the angel, what a life for you Picking up people discarded & making them a-new The insect that flies at the window , you’ve gotta help set free I guess that’s the way everybody could be… But you feel like you’ve got no defences from feelings as they flow Are they yours are they somebody elses? How are you to know ? Wave upon wave of emotion,that’s how it’s always been Is it the dream of your life or the life of your dream ? Weeping angels in your eyes Weeping angels feel everyone Weeping angels on a smile that can hide the pain in their song Weeping angels in your eyes Weeping angels heal everyone Weeping angels realise that they’ve got nowhere to belong The mirror-hung vacant devotion -what a thing to give But you don’t want to blame anybody -or tell them how to live Cold or hot all you’ve got are your angels whispering inside At the heart of all ways is to always be kind.. Weeping angels in your eyes Weeping angels feel everyone Weeping angels on a smile that can hide the pain in their song Weeping angels in your eyes Weeping angels heal everyone Weeping angels realise that they’ve got nowhere to belong
  5. Flotsam & Jetsam

    Thanx alot for your feedback Murphster..Love your use of Bowies "better period" too which is exactly the way i see him too
  6. Flotsam & Jetsam

    Very kind of you to say that about my songwriting Clint & appreciate your feedback as always..Rubber Soul maybe my favourite Beatles album too (ok maybe tied with Sgt Pepper n the white album lol)
  7. Flotsam & Jetsam

    Thanx for your feedback Dan..Syd era Pink Floyd n early Bowie i'm def a big fan of..Can see what you mean with the end part..We maybe should've cut it back a bit
  8. Flotsam & Jetsam

    Love John Lennon -so thats a real compliment Brelizabeth..Thanx for taking the time to give it a few listens too
  9. Flotsam & Jetsam

    The big big big bit is my favourite part ! Haha..Thanx as always for your feedback
  10. Profit / Then It Comes

    Saw your pic n thought i was gonna get some typical modern pop country..Thankfully i was very wrong !..Thought the quiet opening was very cool..The main neil young meets shoegazer song shows a really interesting musical imagination n to the not -predictable which i appreciate..Good chords n melodies n major 7th sense of atmosphere i definitely dug..Nice one..Really interesting n creative track
  11. Little Big Lies

    Nice quirky empathic song..Really like the change of rythm part which has a cool tune n was unexpected..Thought the "little big lies " part was axis of awesome -but just checked n its C -F-Am-G NOT C-G-Am-F lol
  12. Where The Sun Keeps Shining Down

    Very well done modern pop song..Like Arcade Fire with a more pop edge to my ears -Could easily hear this on modern radio..Chorus is really sweet..Love all the layered choral vocals n the lead singer soulin' at the endwas really well done too..Good track
  13. Yard Sale

    Thought this was great..Lovely seductive,sassy neon smokey nightclub blues vibe,,,Great playing, great singing, strong confident melodies n lyrics..Really enjoyable track
  14. White Lake Country Club

    Reminds me of "About A Girl " by Nirvana,mostly from the chords i think..Lots of energy in the performance but the verse n chorus are too similar music/feel wise for me i'm afraid
  15. My Avalon

    Melodic early 70s style prog pop/rocl.. track which definitely puts me in mind of Queen..My favourite part musically was the "My spirit's strong,Even as these walls around me crumble to the ground.I'll carry on,And one day I will rise again,From my Avalon " section which was really cool n my fave part here musically..Agree with Murphster viz the tempo
