Oh, um, Hello! (taps microphone) is this on?


Recommended Posts

I would like to say how mind bogglingly wonderful it is to make everyone’s acquaintance. Being songwriters and musicians, you are all likely witty, insightful, creatively endowed, prone to thinking fathomlessly deep thoughts, and good-looking to boot.

(Anyone inclined to give me money at this point may PM me for paypal details.)

I am a Singer/ Songwriter/ Musician type myself. I started singing when I was eight, playing guitar and writing poetry when I was a boy of fourteen, and shortly thereafter started writing songs. I am now thirty-six and perform for people in the Springfield- Branson area of Missouri, and I don’t play any Skinnard.

I thought I would just throw that in there. I get that a lot you see…

I am of the staunch opinion that today is a good one in which to be alive.

But it’s a glorious day to meet my fellow artists and make new friends.

Mom will be so proud :D

Best Regards to everyone here.

Oh, Lynyard Skynyrd!

So that’s whom everybody has been referring to. I thought they meant Mrs. Skinnard, my fifth grade math teacher! Well, I feel much better now. Thanks so much NightWolf!

Just for that, I’m going to give you my personal cure for lycanthropy. It goes as follows:

Instructions: 3/4 oz vodka, 3/4 oz blue curacao, 3/4 oz sour, shake well and lightly mist, serve up, preferably in a double martini glass, garnish with a lemon twist. And Drink like there’s no tomorrow!

Oh, wait a minute! That one makes you howl at a fool moon! Sorry.

I just know I’ve got the right recipe somewhere….. ::)

Steve my good frood, you have indeed hit spot upon the truth. I am a migratory forumite straight from the Douglas Adams Continuum. Someone left the door open between forums and, seeing as how it sounded like a party going on in here as well, I slipped on through.

I love what you all have done to the place. Very nice.

I just can’t believe the idea of a looking for a songwriting forum never crossed my mind before. Well, technically, I guess it didn’t this time either, as I more or less stumbled through, but hey ho, it’s a funny old life. I’m glad to be here.

There are a lot of good musicians and singers in the world, and I have met many of them in my travels, but songwriters? Now that’s a different ball of wax entirely. I’ve met only a handful hear and there.

My thanks to Nightwolf, Steve, Alistair, Atom2, Lazz, And Phantomengineer for the warm welcome. To commemorate this event, I should like to share with you a silly song I wrote.

Want’a hear it, here it goes! [smiley=acoustic.gif]

I was bathed in the waters of the river Styx

I’ve got Voodoo Visions and a bag of tricks

I’ve been cooking up a spell that will rock this earth

Turn back all time from death to birth

I possess the key to open all the locks

And I have come to show you how a miracle, magical, mystical, man

Can rock-

I have walked through the gardens of Xanadu

I have seen more spirits than Scooby Doo

I have hitched a ride on Apollo’s chariot

And lassoed Sputnik with Will Roger’s lariat

Well I’ve got more tricks than the great Houdini!

I made out with Barbara Eden back when she was Genie

When her master was away; I kissed her straight on the lips

Then she through her head back and caused a solar eclipse

But I

Won’t start no new religion

I just want to be the man with the

Voodoo Vision

Chief necromancer

Big daddy rain dancer

I can fly through the air

Like the rain deer Prancer

But don’t ask me if Santa Claus exists

Because I NEVER HAVE MADE THE FAT MAN’S LISTwhip.gif

No, I’ve paid my dues and sold my soul

For the power of the magic in my rock and

Roll-

And I have walked through the gardens of Xanadu

I have seen more spirits than Scooby Doo

I have hitched a ride on Apollo’s chariot

And lassoed Sputnik with Will Roger’s lariat

I’ve got more tricks than the great Houdini

I made out with Barbara Eden back when she was Genie

Her master was away; I kissed her straight on the lips

She through her head back and caused a solar eclipse

But I

Don’t want no new religion

I just want to be the man with the

Voodoo Vision

:D

Hey Horatio

Welcome to Songstuff!

We spent ages decorating the place, so I'm glad you approve! Some say we need some scatter cushions, but I like the minimalist approach. :)

A good lyric, I'm looking forward to reading some more.

Cheers

John

Well met john & nigal lawry, and thanks to all for the encouraging words.

Awesome Words, does that have Music? It has a hell of a Hook

Yes I actually wrote the lyrics and vocal melody to go along with a riff I came up with, as is generally my method of crafting a song. Not always though.

Unfortunately I don't have any of my music online as of yet, or I would invite you to have a listen. I'm hoping to change this in the future soon...

Cheers!
