    I updated Are you out There: my friend has a deep voice 😉

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 16

    Hi Cindy, I sent you my message.

  • @krayzie003  Mar 14

    I just saw your message and when I checked it out the song played just fine.

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 10

    Thank you Cindy, I replied.

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 10

    Hope you've received it. If not you might like to check spam, just in case.
    Some messages end up there for some reason.

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 10

    Hi Cindy, sending my email to you.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Mar 10

    Just a note to say I DID actually finish my kitchen lyric you commented on. If you are curious.

  • @brrrse  Mar 9

    Hey Cindy!! they are both on the stack to get done. Had a Fibromyalgia flare around the 25th of february, and it's knocked me down hard. Just starting to crawl out. Will get those done for ya probably starting on them next week. Hugs girl!!

  • @sherrycanary  Mar 6

    Thank you for kind words on my collab with Tim on his song Hey Kid.
    What an amazing body of work you have!
    Maybe a collab next Fawm. I was away part of Feb, and the had house guests so I wasn't as involved as I usually am. If not for collabs, never would have made it

  • @middlec Mar 5

    I haven't. I'm so sorry! I just got really bogged down with work and some health things and had to scrap all of FAWM after the first week and a half. I still have a track, though, and will tuck that in my pocket to explore just as soon as I can.

  • @audrey  Mar 4

    Thank you Cindy for your kind comment on my choral piece "Christmas Memories" I appreciate it. And may I say how thoroughly impressed I am at how good and how prolific a lyricist you are. It's no surprise that a lot of people this FAWM have created music with your lyrics. I'm so glad to have met you this FAWM

  • @crimulus  Mar 4

    Cindy, thank you for *almost* singlehandedly keeping me motivated through this. Your kind comments always made it easy to come back the next day and do it again!

  • @factorytale Mar 3

    I think I'll stop myself now. Noone listened to the lqst song. One has to know when to stop. ☺

  • @zxcvbnm  Mar 2

    Thanks for your comment on my booze song, you have been incredibly busy, almost 4 songs a day, well done.

  • @standup  Mar 2

    holy crap. congrats on 95 songs this FAWM. Excellent job, never mind my feelings of inadequacy1

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 1

    Thank you Cindy, I'll keep you posted.

  • @ferry0123 Mar 1

    Wow, you've been productive this month!

    Thanks for your kind comments, Cindy, the last one included!

  • @williamhaight Mar 1

    Thanks for the nice comments. Elizabeth's lyrics are gorgeous,

  • @tiller2  Mar 1

    Hello friend, don't tell me you're going for a song century. 😀 Well, when you take a break from writing... I've added music to my lyric "The Promised Us Space Planes," and you asked to know that. I'd love any feedback 😁

  • @tjeff  Feb 28

    Hi, and thx for your comment on Mr Oblivion!

  • @aneil Feb 28

    Thx for many comments keep FAWMing

  • @leahshoshanah Feb 28

    Thanks for listening to my version of the "The Brave One" and for the kind comments! Your FAWM site is the GOLD MINE of lyrics that I've been searching for this ENTIRE month. I'm watchlisting you!

  • @tiller2  Feb 27

    hi bird lover 😀 I put my whooping crane lyric to music and would love your reaction/comment if you have time

  • @oaksnprairie  Feb 27

    I'm glad you liked Firefly! Thank you.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 27

    I hope you're not too surprised by what I did in your chunk of the Lyrics First Corpse #1. But... it was fun!

  • @philmcmill  Feb 27

    Wow, so many songs! Thanks so much for your kind words on my songs 'full circle' and 'fear factory'.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 26

    Thanks for visiting my song "Reflection"!

  • @klaus  Feb 26

    Hi Cindy. Thank you so much for your kind words on Shine. And thank you for being, again, my faithful zongbuster. 😀

  • @donna  Feb 26

    I appreciated your comment on 'Mr Oblivion', Cindy.
    Thought you might enjoy the demo. 😀

  • @aerlyn Feb 25

    Hi Cindy, I've just finished a genderbent recording of Stop! Go! Would you like me to e-mail it to you before it's posted? Thanks for letting me do this 😀

  • @pamgrisham  Feb 25

    Cindy, thank you for listening to House of Movies. Your comment made me smile. 😀

  • @gordon Feb 25

    Ok, thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I've posted it and hope you like it. At best, I hope you don't hate it. If you do, feel free to remove all trace from FAWM. 😀

  • @pamgrisham  Feb 25

    Hi Cindy, Candy Hearts and Birds of My Heart are great songs! I have bluebirds and purple martins in my back yard right now and I'm praying the English sparrows don't drive them away. I would love to add music and vocals to both songs but I'll be out of town for several days and FAWM will be over by the time I return. I recorded a rough recording for Candy Hearts so I already have a possible melody, I just don't have time to complete it. If you like I will add music to both songs when I return and send the recordings by email. Your songs are beautiful.

  • @gordon Feb 25

    Hi Cindy, thanks again for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment on one of mine. I was looking at your lyrics and thought it might be fun to have a go on Sculpture. Do you mind? It'll be a "see what happens, one-take kind of thing" but I really like the lyrics/

  • @crisp1  Feb 25

    Thanks for the nice words about Trail of Tears. Wow, have you been productive this FAWM! Fun, isn't it? Congratulations!

  • @julesbf  Feb 25

    thank you for your kind comments, again, on will you be there. 3 more to go for me. You must end up with a massive amount of material over a year if you produce this much in a month. great stuff. Gigging tonight but will come back to check your recent adds later tonight 😀

  • @heidiserwer  Feb 25

    Thanks for commenting on Sinking Slowly!

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 24

    Thanks for commenting on I Think I Finally See. I appreciate it. The song needs some tweaking.

  • @radicalmguy  Feb 24

    You said you wanted to hear aerlyn's song "Run Like the Black Death" once it got a collab, and I have fulfilled that end of it

  • @arthurrossi Feb 23

    Thank you very, very much for your wonderful words...

  • @crimulus  Feb 23

    "People Suck" answer: He is 8 😀

    Says many funny things ... I need to write more down.

  • @pamgrisham  Feb 23

    Hey Cindy, thank you! I'll email the music & vocals to you for your approval. 😀

  • @robs  Feb 22

    Hey Cindy, thanks! I'll start working on it asap.

  • @ferry0123 Feb 22

    I love it when that happens. Great to hear!

  • @aneil Feb 22

    Thx for the comment! Cant believe feb nearly over so much music still left in it though.

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 22

    Hi Cindy
    Thank you for your lovely comments on the Sweet Jazz song. It's def my comfort zone singing jazz
    What an amazing body of work you have!

  • @barbara  Feb 22

    Thanks for your comments, Cindy! I am intrigued by many of your titles as I scrolled down to post this. I will make a circle back to check them out.

  • @robs  Feb 21

    Cindy! Pfff 68 already, I'm still at 0 (but a few are nearly finished). I haven't had time yet to look at your lyrics, but what I am looking for are short lyrics, IE a few lines, or just a verse + chorus, maybe some leftover fragments. If you have something like that let me know and I'll try to record it.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 21

    Thanks for listening and commenting on "Turn The Page". Glad you liked it.

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 21

    Hi, Cindy.

    Demo for 'Balthazar' is up, and well worth your while:

  • @klaus  Feb 20

    Thanks, Cindy, for comments on Sweet Jazz Music. It really is my first lyrics-only! And you, wow, 64 entries and counting! That's really something! 😀

  • @brrrse  Feb 20

    re: my angry troll song - didnt I write that last FAWM too? I swear I feel like I"m repeating myself. and yeah, you can comment away, lady, we're family, you an me 😀

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 20

    Thanks for listening to "Gloria" girl, look at all of these ding dang songs of yours, how will I ever catch up with you...

  • @toddchappelle  Feb 19

    Just posted the bacon song. One take - BAM.

  • @ampersandman  Feb 19

    Thanks for stopping by and listening to my tune! Much appreciated.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 18

    What'd you think of me singing in 4/4 time over a 5/4 time background during the verses in Whimsical? That was a little tricky!

  • @levesinet Feb 18

    After Susan Cantey's comment, I had to add vocals to Heavenly Sounds. LOL

  • @unkept Feb 18

    Thanks for your kind words on "Nero". 😀 I'm glad your enjoyed it!

  • @crimulus  Feb 17

    Thanks for the comment on "Smell A Rose" Cindy -- it's great to get contradictory feedback when you feel a song is not that great, and the Pawpaw connection is great!

  • @dewcatcher  Feb 17

    Just so you know, I'm going to recording the demo this weekend and should have it completed by Monday!

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 17

    Thanks for your gracious comments on "I Want To Dance With You". I'm so glad you liked it.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 16

    Thanks so much, Cindy!

  • @brrrse  Feb 16

    Oh you're so kind! re: vocals on Dreaming.. I watched videos of people doing the Tango so I could get the feel of it. Sorry my voice was a little thin..I pushed a little too hard, but I needed to get this out and move to the next one 😀 Its a fantastic lyric! and @levesinet did a wonderful job! my part was very easy!

  • @tiller2  Feb 16

    Hi Cindy, so glad you liked my Whooping Crane lyric. Enjoy your bird watching! 😀

  • @jamkar  Feb 15

    Look at you go Cindy! I will have a lot to return to!

  • @brrrse  Feb 14

    Girl, just wanted to let you know I'm recording vocals on Dreaming of you today to send to @levesinet Your lyrics are so fun and set so well. I'm watching videos of people doing the tango and dancing around my living room. This song is sooo amazingly fun and the rhythm of the words is just amazing!! 😀 Had to let you know

  • @oaksnprairie  Feb 14

    43! I go away for a week, and look what happens. I'm catching up on my own songs, but I'll definitely see if we have another collab possibility later. Congrats on all your efforts!

  • @marthie Feb 13

    Thank you for your feedback on Twinkle improv- hearing voices in your head yet? lol

  • @marthie Feb 13

    Thank you for your feedback on GhOst Town

  • @marthie Feb 13

    thank you for listening and giving feedback to Babylon: Song for the end of the earth...

  • @marthie Feb 13

    Thank you- I don't know where you find the time and extra ears! Looking for you- feedback

  • @marthie Feb 13

    thank you for your feedback on "Heaven"

  • @marthie Feb 13

    Thank you for your feedback on "Dream"

  • @ferry0123 Feb 13

    Thanks again for your encouraging comment, Cindy!

  • @marthie Feb 13

    Thank you for your feedback on "What is one kiss"

  • @metalfoot  Feb 13

    The joy of young children, that's all! That's how things go in their age/stage of life. They love each other dearly but sometimes they fight it out.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 13

    They were happy to get the song done (you have NO idea how many times the kids tried to come up with tunes this week and fought each other over their ideas!). It took daddy making a new tune different from their ideas and rehearsing it with them to make it work. But it worked well... and I'm sure my kids would love a hug! 😀

  • @aerlyn Feb 12

    And likewise 😀

    I love Stop! Go! It would be fun to sing, as I've got an idea how the melody goes (although I'm a girl and I'm not sure if the gender of the singer is something that you had predetermined...)

  • @arthurrossi Feb 12

    I would liek to thank you very much for your beautiful comment! 😀

  • @jessica14  Feb 11

    Thanks for listening to my skirmish song. Also a note on "On Eyre Highway", I googled it and there are camels in the Australian outback. Who would have known 😀 So please keep the camels in the song! This is where they belong 😀

  • @janeg  Feb 11

    Re your Q, filkers tend to use the tag "filk" on applicable songs. Not everything we write is filk. We also tend to search for it. I never remember to also search sci-fi. I search for mythology, folklore and fairy tales too.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 10

    Thanks for your comment on The Islander.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 10

    I loved your vocals on the few you did! Maybe try:

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 10

    Cool! I think you should try one of mine too - two lyrists who feel vocally challenged doing music for each other!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 10

    Cindy would you mind if I tried to put Sculpture to music? It will not be high quality as you know that is not my forte at all but I love those lyrics!

  • @ustaknow Feb 10

    Hello, thank you for the feedback comments, it's much appreciated! 😀

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 9

    Thanks for listening to "One on One With Nature" I really appreciate it!, I recorded the vocal before I got sick, you don't want to hear me sing now.... I had to keep re-recording the snare because I kept having coughing fits.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 9

    Thanks for listening and can't wait to get started working on you song. Let's make something great.

  • @heidiserwer  Feb 9

    Thank you so much for your kind words on "Love Is What Makes The Man." I just sent it to my dad. Hope he likes it!

  • @julesbf  Feb 9

    Thanks Cindy, thought i should do something a little more accessible for a change (it won't last though)

  • @inger Feb 8

    Thank you so much for commenting on my lullaby. And... wow. Do you ever do anything but write? That's really impressive

  • @kc5 Feb 8

    Wowsy! Look at all those songs, Eight days into February and you've got 31!!! Hey, there is a link to hear "Drowning in Lavender Fields". I just mark them private on my SC, so it doesn't work the usual way. I have to put the link in my linear notes.

  • @spunky4455 Feb 8

    Hi, Cindy, thanks for listening, commenting, and writing cool lyrics, Just learned you can't see the comments on my own thread, so that's why I'm writing you here...keep up the great work!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 8

    Might be a couple days--- kind of busy around these parts right this week. But we will definitely do that. 😀

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 8

    Thanks Cindy! You are always so kind! I look forward to hearing you sing some of your own too! I know you can as you did is well on the last go around!

  • @billysea  Feb 8

    Thank you kindly. No worries though, with my schedule, I'm really not sure that I'll be posting many more 😀

  • @haijintonic17 Feb 8

    Thanks for your comments on "Ratatosk's big game/la Java de Ratatosk". A chance encounter with a squirrel, too much time on my hands, a passion for fantasy/mythology, and a meandering min made this possible.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 7

    Thanks for listening to my song "Underneath The Tree", I appreciate it.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 7

    Thanks for visiting "Nightmare of My Dreams", I appreciate your time and comments!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 7

    Thanks so much for your wonderful comment, Cindy!
