    Aw thanks @gordon! I am chuffed to bits with having succeeded in what I set out to do. So glad you liked them, especially with the harp - it always has the risk of sounding twee!

  • @oblivionratula  Mar 1

    HOLY MEGA FAWM WIN!!!!! Impressive output.

  • @klaus Mar 1

    Hi Gordon. Thank you for your kind words on Kiss Me and Kill Me. It's amazing you have time to comment at all. 😀

  • @sapient  Mar 1

    The magic 140! Huzzah!!!
    😁

  • @cindyrella  Feb 27

    Don't worry about it. Only if you have time. Thanks

  • @cindyrella  Feb 26

  • @benjo  Feb 24

    Hey Gordon

    yeah so true bud, wish it could go on forever, thanks mate take care

  • @benjo  Feb 24

    Hey Gordon, WOW WOW WOW
    YOU SMASHED THIS ONE BUD
    the feeling you give this is incredible, it literally takes 10 minutes to get to the bottom of
    your page, you have so much going on, and to pause on your own work and give yourself to
    another fawmer like you do is what fawming is all about for me
    you've done a few of my lyrics over the years, and i love them all
    CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH BUD
    AS ALWAYS WHAT A GREAT JOB
    YOU HAVE DONE ON MY WORDS
    THANK YOU GORDON, LOVE IT

    Tony

  • @srcoops Feb 23

    Gordon, thank you so much for using your tremendous creative talents to bring life to my words. You have done a great job and I have enjoyed hearing the finished works. This being my first year in Fahm outside of my collaborations with my son, I appreciated very much your kind words and encouragement. I hope to be back next year.

  • @defaultdave  Feb 22

    Thanks for swinging by and checking out my song. I would love to play blues in Amerstdam!
    And holly cow the amount of songs you have!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 21

    Gosh you are creative! 104? I thought you might like my Sweetie song. 😀 http://fawm.org/songs/84824/

  • @highmountain Feb 21

    Gosh, quite an output here!! Thanks for your comments! Netherlands? Jan Wolkers is one of my great literature heroes. (Hard to beat that blend of his of angry sex-starved teenager and tender animal friend. 😀)

  • @markg  Feb 21

    Do you ever sleep? So many songs and they are gems.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    Of course I couldn't hate it! You can't do I song I hate I don't think. It's great!

  • @sapient  Feb 20

    And.... There's the 100 song barrier broken! Good work that man! 😃

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    That'd be great! gosh, you are almost to 100!

  • @klaus Feb 19

    Thanks Gordon for comments on Darkness and Shadows. Geez, my scrolling finger gets tired on your page. 😀 But it's wonderful, that "flow" you have.

  • @terriellen  Feb 16

    Thanks for listening to my song Love is the Only Way, you are right the vocal needs to be up more in the mix. I need to redo that one!

  • @srcoops Feb 16

    Gordon, you did a terrific job with End Game. Thank you very much. I thought your idea of repeating the first verse was just right. You treated a dark subject with the perfect tone.

  • @akokulit Feb 15

    Amazing!!! Half the month and you've completed almost 90 songs. Whew that's harder than 50/90.

  • @pumpkinhead Feb 15

    Thanks Gordon. The main words are "In a second it is all over" which is basically under the conditions we all live which I try to explore in the rest of the lyrics. Peace man.

  • @srcoops Feb 14

    I would appreciate your taking a look at My Name Is Dad and End Game. Thanks

  • @engebretsen  Feb 14

    Thx a lot for comments on "Fool" Much appreciated.

  • @srcoops Feb 12

    I would be happy for you to give My Treasure a try

  • @srcoops Feb 11

    You did a very nice job with Company Man. I am quite well pleased. Thank you for both doing the song and sending me such warm sentiments. It is fun to have something entirely new, like this lyric writing, come your way at my point in life (81) The genuine support and encouragement I have received has been terrific.

  • @thetau  Feb 10

  • @cindyrella  Feb 9

    Thanks so much for Catch Me! Anytime you feel like you can't resist with my lyrics-go for it! 😀

  • @sapient  Feb 9

    Ah, thought it might have been one of the Teles!
    I have the day off today, and it's going to be Telecasterpalooza!
    Already planning for tomorrow. I have a fragment that might help us get started...

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 6
