  1. I came up with my name when I was about 27 or so years old. I was thinking I wanted my online name to reflect I was a poetry writer (I kept my lyrics to myself for many years), but as quick as the word "reflect" came into my mind, I remembered my mam'ma (grandma for the northerners) who's now 97, always called her mirror a looking glass, and I liked it. So, being it would be used on the net, I dropped the "i" and "g" in "Looking" and LooknGlass was created.
  2. I like this a lot John. I like what Gary said, I would add "I'm losing you" at the end of every chorus myself. Good write!
  3. I was wondering if anybody else uses ReaTune in Reaper?...As I have begun doing vocals (verses, just lyrics) within the past year or so, I have been using this feature in Reaper. I have got to where I can tune my vocals without it being noticed in the last couple months (after a lot of practice) without sounding like Cher in her song "Believe". This is the tutorial I started with to learn it, yet, I just use a single track of my vocal, unlike what he does in the vid. Anybody else use this?
  4. Thanks man, I really appreciate the listen and feedback, as well as the compliment. I got a message from Ramiro (the musician) today. I guess we got another collab coming soon. I like him a lot, he's got loads of talent.
  5. Ok, now I know I know them. I have heard both those songs, and I like them both too, but I have heard "Personal Jesus" get more airplay (at least in the past) You guys are right, it does have their kind of vibe.
  6. Thanks a mil for the listen and critique Richard. Good stuff to pass on. I had a little lack of confidence in the lyric because I never wrote one as a riddle before, but I'm glad peeps like it. I honestly can't name a song Depeche Mode sang so now I'm off to Youtube to see if I have heard them.
  7. Cool tune! It's got a Bee Gees meets Prince feel. Groovy and funky and very enjoyable. Nice work man
  8. Good tune! I get a slight U2 vibe from it. It's got a great vibe and mood. I can't think of anything to suggest, it was a great song to sit back with the headphones on and chill. Nice work
  9. Man, that's a good idea David, I like it a lot, and I'm mad (not really) that I didn't come up with that bridge idea, it's great! I gotta see if my collaborator has some free time soon, to pitch that. Thanks, great mind jog!....I just made that up.
  10. Great sound and vocal, I dig it! I find myself wondering what you mean by the chorus, but that's not a bad thing, vagueness can be interesting, and with the great vocal, it is. Cool tune!
  11. This is different and unique, not the same ole same ole, and I like that. The switch up at about the 1:15 mark caught me by surprise, but it was a cool surprise. Cool tune Hamzi, I like it!
  12. Thanks for the listen and comment Matthew. I liked Ramiro's take on it myself. I've never worked with him before, but I hope to again.
  13. Thanks a mil for your response and critique Will. I will relay your observations to Ramiro, and see what he thinks. This is a first pass so I'll see if anything else is coming especially bridge wise. Like I said in my post, this was an experiment, with the idea the singer would introduce the song as a riddle. Now some have said they don't get it with some of the verses after knowing the answer, and some are ok with it. The answer is; a gun
  14. A touch of Pink Floyd meets David Bowie. That's what I hear, and I like it. Being primarily a lyricist I can't really comment on it musically in depth, but I do like the melody and feel. Good stuff
  15. Hi Neil, I know what you are talking about. My sister, who just passed away recently, had the issues you mentioned, and it can be hard. Actually IS hard. I'm with you my friend. To many write to impress others instead of expressing themselves truly. We all want to impress, but first we have to learn to express properly, and I know without a doubt that you get that. I always have liked your work. Songstuff is my home of homes, even though I am not here as much as I used to be, this forum, or more correctly "community" has helped me A LOT through the 5 plus years I've been a member.
