  1. Hi I'm not going to tell anyone what this was written about for personal reasons, and for the critic to make a judgement based in the song without any pre discussed meaning. This is Train: (Verse 1) So it is what it is, he's leaving this life on the train that won't return, But he's leaving this life, so that he can learn, What's on the other side. He's packing his case, now he's down the road, Passed by the field, he could feel the cold, Not the way he wanted to go, but now the tickets sold. (Chorus) It's loosened by the wind and rain, Cracked foundations of life, Are driving you insane, So sad you had to go, A better life, only you could know. It's beating down hard on memory lane, Wrapped life in a bag, and away he goes again, goodbye my friend, thought you'd last until they end. (Verse 2) So times are hard, and he's weakened by having a hole heart, but why did he have to part, So much more to life he could bring. Times a healer, I've said it before and I'll say it again, you've gotta dust yourself off, and never give in, to late for you my friend. (Chorus) So it is what it is, a year has passed, the train leaves again, will it ever come back, until next year, they leave that thought behind, One last glanse at the train that won't return. (Chorus) Thanks in advance!
  2. A song I wrote a year ago, the day after a friend killed himself. An Idea for a song. Simpel home recording (on a Boss BR600). Two guitars, 1 voice. The trip: A perfect life starts with a fear you never felt before When you know you're leaving but you don't know what's ahead. Can a perfect day start with a pain you never thought that you could bare? Yeah all of this might have its reasons. Chorus: For if you never felt this pain and fear, how would you know? How could you? For if you never made this trip before, how could you know? It's a perfect journey To a place you never been before. Yeah you know you're leaving but you don't know what's ahead Can a perfect joy start with a tear you never spelt before? Could that be the start of?.. yeah might be the start of. Chorus... Bridge: Travel light my friend, don't carry to much weight There’s read ahead and it might not be straight. A perfect end starts with a fear you never felt before. When you know you leaving a you don't know what's ahead. Bridge (2X)... But if you never made that trip before, how could you know.
  3. If any of you are interested in digging under the hood of song construction and what makes songs work, I’ve put together a blog on the nuts and bolts of verse/chorus structure. It’s a fairly in-depth analysis, and hopefully will help clarify what a chorus actually is, and then what makes it work as a chorus. I feel that there are a lot of fairly vague descriptions floating around, which aren’t necessarily wrong, but aren’t particularly helpful either. I’ve tried to isolate the specific musical elements (harmonic, rhythmic, melodic) that characterise a chorus, and examine how they work together. If you’re interested, elsewhere on my blog there is some analysis of specific songs, as well as other blogs about form and structure in pop/rock music. (work in progress … AABA form coming up!) Putting it out there in a spirit of research for discussion. If it’s helpful, so much the better! https://petecrosbie.com/2016/08/25/how-verse-chorus-structure-works/
  4. Most songs written in popular music follow song forms. Song forms are structures containing various sections that may or may not be repeated within the song. Though there are a number of traditional song forms that are used commony, a song form may also be derived from existing ones to suit the need. Some of the most common song forms may include the strophic form (AAA), the 12-bar blues form (AAB), the 32-bar form (AABA) and so on. It is very important for any songwriter to have knowledge of the various song forms and its application in order to write more sensibly and to express themselves better. Pat Pattinson, a professor at Berklee College of Music once said "There are no rules to songwriting, only tools". Aptly, the following article gives you an overview to be able to use its knowledge where needed. http://www.songstuff.com/song-writing/article/song-form-overview/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful. If you have any questions, feel free to discuss it on the Songstuff Community Forums.
  5. When writing a song, do you prefer writing a song with a chorus, (like an ABABCB format) or one without a chorus that uses a refrain (like an AABA song)? I find myself typically writing choruses, but I think it's good to change things up when you write. Helps you grow as a writer
  6. New Article - A Guide To Song Form - Compound Song Forms Have you ever used a compound song form? As a songwriter, I bet you have. Compound song forms are far more common than you might at first think. Building upon the AAA, AABA, AB, ABC and AAB song form articles from our series on song forms, this article explains common compound popular song forms that you can add to your song writing toolbox.

  7. Hi there! My drummer and I recorded this new song of mine on the weekend. This is a raw demo (the 3rd take whole) and the vocals were recorded at the end of the day, so they are a bit off-tune in parts as my voice was tired... I'd just like to hear any feedback you have, if you have any lyrical development suggestions, or vocal dynamic suggestions, or any ideas about instruments I could add to give it more power. Thanks! http://soundcloud.com/justine_electra/oh-love-2nd-session
