This is my 6th FAWM, and I have done the 50/90 5 times. In both of those I loved taking part even though I made it nowhere near the song targets, maybe this Feb I'll get a bit nearer, especially as this year (EDIT: again) I plan to write a few short songs, maybe that is cheating a bit but I do want to get a few short songs for gigging, a musical equivalent of one-liners to throw in.
I write some comedy songs, some just whatever songs, sometimes a kids' song and some short instrumentals and sketches, ... I have no idea what will come out of this month and I'm looking forward to some skirmishes and challenges.
Most of all I just like being part of it.
songs from previous FAWMs and 50/90s are on my website:
(With the end-of-FAWM rush, I've been a little late.)
Congratulations on hitting Century Club! 😀
Hey Wobs, I always enjoy your songs and look forward to hearing what you come up with at 50/90!
thanks for your comment on my song!
Thanks for for your comment, I really appreciated it. Off to listen to your songs now.
Hi, Wobbie! Thanks so much for your kind words about "It Shouldn't Be Spring"!
I'll be stopping by in the coming days to hear more of your songs - I'm really looking forward to that!
Thanks a ton for the feedback, its much appreciated!
Thanks Wobbie for your kind words on Shine. I'm glad you noticed the "cheesy" factor. The "baby-baby"s were the first thing to come to mind. Lyrics then took a more serious turn but then I went and added the "well, well"s and " you gotta gotta"s. I left out the "ma-naa-ma-maa"s from Janis Joplins Take Another Piece of My Heart thought. I mean, seriously, there are some limits to my cheese. 😀
Thanks for checking in, Wobbs. I'm doing ok. This winter is too wonderful to waste it locked in the studio. Hope you're doing well and having a FabFeb too. Wolf xoxo
I don't usually listen to much for political stuff, but yours has a comedic take that's refreshing and your style is unique--something I don't mind listening to and actually sucks away "what drags" out of the political scene.
Thanks for listening! 😀
Your turn on the auntie sin game... good luck trying to synthesize those first two songs. I'm glad it's not my turn yet! This is fun!
Yes! Please feel free to use my lettuce joke 😀
Thank you, Wobbie, for listening to "Tattoo." I so appreciate your kind words.
Thanks for listening to "Underneath The Tree"!
Hey Wobbie. Thanks for listening to Dragon! There's a few of us still waiting for Burr Settles to mend the link from SoundCloud to FAWM as in the meantime our songs aren't getting much love. Thanks as always for taking the time to follow the link anyhoo xx
Hey there Wobbie, so good to see you here again and thanks for listening to my first finished song. I will listen soon, though right now it's late and I'm gonna get some sleeping in...
Thanks for popping by to listen to Alphabetical!
Yeah...been a working girl this week but today's my day off. Gonna get as much songage done as poss!!
Thank you. 😊
Hiya Wobs - I'm looking forwards to a new selection of songs that I already know will leave a smile on my face. Glad to see you're off to a flying start; need to do some catching up, I do...
Hi Wobbie, good to hear from you again. I always look forward to your slices of modern life. Thanks for commenting.
Yay wobbie!!! My fav FAWMer. Collab??
I always enjoy your creations Wobbie and I can't wait to discover more!!
Have a wonderful FAWM! 😁
Hoping you astonish us all this year—more importantly that you astonish yourself positively!
Can. Not. Wait... to hear your wonderful music this year! 😀
Hey, happy FAWMing to you too! Just dug out that original version and emailed to the address above. Agree about the second version losing a bit of the demo charm, as is often the way...
Hello from the other side (literally...like across the pond, right?). 😀
Hello again WOBS
May the FAWM be with you
A true original...luv your talent.
How you doing? 😎
Yay! Looking forward to your delicious bonkersness again! 😀
Can't wait to hear what you write this year!
Hello, Wobbie 😀 Happy FAWMing 2017!! Best wishes and lots of musical fairy dust sprinkled all over your page! Like you need it! You've got plenty of your own! Love your unique style! 😀
Perhaps this time we'll actually get around to doing a Collab...
