      Finally! I cleared the History cache and rebooted my poor computer. Now I'm back to English! whew! Thanks so much!

  6. Well Dave, I'm glad you love it. I was hoping that the 70's feel might translate into a modern feel if we had a talking/rap part. This song has a purpose so I appreciate your honesty with it. Neighbor!! Maybe if I get out of work on time, I can come see you again! :-)
  7. You will do well. We all help each other with critiques and encouragement. I look back at some of my challege's songs and say "Wow, did I write that? oh yeah, the group helped me see things I didn't notice!" I'm always learning. I will NEVER say "I'm a great songwriter" because I will always want to be better. I think I'll pop in on the latest Challenge... See you there!
  8. Hi PP! Hope you've been busy. Thanks for your input. I really appreciate it. I was hoping that the bridge would be more of a rap but I forgot to communicate that when they went to record it. I was hoping the singer would let loose there but she copied what I had sent her. Thanks for listening! Be Well, Lisa
  9. Idiots! Why do I have to deal with them?!! vent over...

  14. Oh Rabvit! You've come to the right place!! You can learn so much from reading the articles, interacting with other members here, and please check out our Weekly lyric challenge. The Weekly lyric challenge helped me in so many ways! We're happy you are here too! All the best, Lisa
  15. I've written some lyrics and actually had a melody come to me while writing them. Someone I met on Facebook liked it enough to put some music to it. Then he had a singer record it. (she sang it exactly the way I did, so I think it's a compliment.) I'd like your opinion on it. I don't like critique with both barrels though, just the truth. Thanx Here are the lyrics: One good girl Has good boys Raises them right Workin through school Shots fired Wrong wrong Taken We hear sirens Watch the news Can’t believe No tomorrow We grieve Gone gone Taken Taken too young Her dreams are done So many songs left unsung tell me who won? Won this damn war Not like before Riot back and forth swing open the door stop it don’t ignore don’t ignore Taken Taken Taken too young Her dreams are done So many songs left unsung Taken Taken Taken 5-9-17.mp3
