    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.

    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  2 days

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

  • @highmountain 2 days

    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  2 days

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

  • @cindyrella  3 days

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

  • @sapient  3 days

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

  • @cindyrella  3 days

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

  • @klaus 4 days

    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 1 week

    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 1 week

    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 1 week

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

  • @pumpkinhead 1 week

    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 1 week

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

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

  • @srcoops 1 week

    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.
