FAWM #6 for me!
I am a lyricist who usually writes for guys to sing, but might start having a mixed bag this year. Who knows?! I just know I love FAWM and it's FUN!
So some changes since last FAWM... I no longer write for a specific band, but starting to work with more than just one cowriter which is nice. I have a new company called Write & Wrong Music where I help get people on internet radio, starting slow right now with a couple local bands as it is not just getting them on the radio, but teaching them about band promotion, music business, etc.
I have a friend here in Maine that plans on joining us this year so please check him out. He's a multi-talented local musician so looking forward to what he does this month. He's gonna be a little slow to start perhaps as he has a vacation coming up the first week. Anyway, go to his profile and click the Watch button @fourthtunz62
In July, I'm moving to Pennsylvania to hopefully write with Pooch and have some other things going on down there as well. Last June I went down and met @the3queens. Lori is awesome! Went to Gettysburg and did the haunted tour of the orphanage. Pretty cool stuff! Lots of amazing history down there!!
There's more stuff going on, too, but won't bore you all with the details right now...just wanna focus on getting February started and visiting all your pages!!
Oh, and I love Fireball and jello shots, and coffee, lots and lots of coffee!
P.S. Suggestions welcomed; however, this is a timed challenge so not really the place for it. However, if you have the inclination, I'm always appreciative and offer the same if wanted.

Thank you for your continued support and generous comments on my music.
Means a lot to me
Thank you so much for the comment on "Killer"! Glad you liked the collab version. I hope we could get that track release ready too.
Thank you for your kind words on "Quilted Heart", I'm glad the message of this song is touching people the same way writing it touched me.
Glad you enjoyed What's My Name. Although I enjoyed the unique approach to the song, it was totally unexpected. The lyrics fit us here in the community where I live (most of us are past 70) and I was thinking of a more lighthearted approach. See Mellow meets Metal for my response.
The End was actually a dare from my wife, to write a song which promised but didn't deliver on an amazing chorus. She's a sneaky one. One of these years I'll get her to do FAWM herself...
*waves hello* Thanks for the watchlisting!
And yes I'm pretty sure Harry would have been pleased as punch.
Thanks for commenting, Cheryl. Really appreciate you taking the time, especially since it's March now.
Thank you Cheryl. 😀
thank you for your comments on my songs. i have liked your lyrics and wished i would have had more time for collaborations. hope to see you again here next year.
Aw, thanks for your comment on Ode to coffee! Chuffed you liked it! A daily coffee post, wow, that is dedication... still, it is a drink that merits that kind of attention I feel!
Hey Cheryl, thanks for indulging my whims on Whips and Chains Excite You"!
WHA…? You are just too cool for school Quadracool Champion!! You took the time to write 400 comments (400!!) and listen to all those songs (ears doin’ ok there?)! Thanks for your almighty contribution to our community. You have 400 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
I'm going to be around in March giving comments and finishing up placeholders. Are you okay with that if I take a crack at Happy Freaky?
Congrats on the win, Cheryl. Just so you know, I had wanted to do a demo for Happy Freaky. Believe it or not, I was nervous to ask you. Not because I wasn't sure you'd say yes, but whether I could do it justice. I'll be doing some commenting on your work for sure, but felt I needed to put it out there that I had been thinking of you.
So glad you and your cockatiel enjoyed "The Loneliest Bird..."
For me, this was grades 1-3, not long after my parents got divorced, we moved to a new city, and I started school. So, lots of things going on. How old was your daughter?
Just checked out your latest...was the title supposed to be "Deary Departed" or "Dearly Departed"?
Thank you for your kin words on "No Way Out", that one ended up a lot darker than I meant to be. My intention was to write a political song but withing 30 seconds I realized that was not the direction the song was going in.
Oh thank you for all amazing comments on my songs. I am so greatful <3
Thanks for the nice comment on my "Face" song. Yeah, first time I used "Apaloosa" in a song. I think I'm gonna write a chorus for that song and keep it.
I'm sorry my bird got you 'tiel worked up. 😉 Have you heard my "Quaker Conversation?" You'll definitely not want to play that one out loud around him/her. 😁 Thanks for the kind words on the track as well. When I was dumbfounded for more lyrics, I was annoyed, but I think it does kind of stand on its own with those 7 or so lines. I really appreciate the listen.
Cheryl, we had an ice storm that coated all the trees. Very pretty, but PIA when limbs bow down and snap electric lines. Warmer temps today with major thaw. No, February isn't supposed to work like this! :-O
Thank you for your kind words on "Living In Love", I had a lot of fun working on that one.
Been without power for 3 days. I plan to start on Hello, Hello this weekend Cheryl!
Got my Wild Unknown deck in the mail today. 😀
hi there. Thanks for your comments on my track, and just letting you know its now finished.
Whatdayawantamedal? Well you’re getting one! You are SUPERB Tripletime Trooper! You took the time to write 300 comments and listen to all those songs! Thanks for your almighty contribution to our community. You have 300 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
Thanks for your very kind comments on mistress on the dark and Dont cry for him <3 and for your kind encouragement.
Thank you so much for your kind words on "Follow Me" which is what I am now calling the song. I had considered using that a the title but wasn't 100 percent committed to it.
Great! Thanks! 😁
Cheryl, thanks for the generous comments on "Pinhole through the Veil" by Klaus and me. I appreciate your time and thoughtfulness.
Cheryl, thanks for comments. Ah, Land of Vampyres. You remembered! Could be it's that song that started this gloomy anti-Klaus thing. 😀
Thanks so much for your comment.
Thanks for the comment! I wonder if by chance you’re talking about my old FAWM account. I ended up switching profiles a couple years ago (something I wish I hadn’t done). I know I’ve seen you before on here, but it’s so hard to remember from which year.
Oh goodness! You’ve got the groove going, girl!! Look at all your songs! Thanks for commenting on my song ☺️.
Oh my goodness Dupletarion Warrior you are AWESOME!! You took the time to write 200 comments and listen to all those songs! Thanks for your hefty contribution to our community. You have 200 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
Thanks for your comments on 10 Of Wands. I had a lot of fun doing the Tarot challenge again this year. I'm glad you heard hwo I captured the symbolism of the card in sound.
See You In The Shadows…
Thanks for your comments on Gone too Soon!
Thanks for the Tarot card, looks like it fits with my theme this year. 😀
Also, thanks for the comment on In the Flames. That lyric seems to catch a lot of people!
Hi! thanks, all is! Just- the busy-ness has finally consumed my time and I don't think I can FAWM effectively this year. I hope to pop out a little song at some point but don't hold your breath. However, here to cheer you on!
Hi Cheryl, thanks for the welcome. I’m sort of here now, but not sure in what capacity just yet - just a listener or writer...
I’ll be checking some songs out soon. 😀
Thanks so much for your wonderful comment!
Cheryl, thank you for your lengthy comment, your willingness to open up and share how the song spoke to you. That means a lot. As one introvert to another. Yes, FAWM is a warm hug of a community, the kind of hug that says, You can do this, you can do better, now go!
Thank you! 😀
Thanks for listening and commenting on Got Lucky. Glad you liked it.
Thank you for you thoughtful comments on my ambient track!
Thank you for your kind comments on Springtime. I really like that one. I intend to get to more of your songs over the weekend.
Right now, dealing with being sick. Can't do much of anything.
Thank you!! I'm so glad you liked my death card song!! 😀 Thank you for the challenge.
So happy that you like my Tarot challenge, given by you, with Three of Wands. Much appreciated. And thx again for making this challenge so great.
Hi Cheryl! Thanks for listening. I do like the idea of making the full title “I am the ocean”
Hi Cheryl, thanks for visiting and leaving a fine comment. I know it's not 50/90 and I honestly don't know what comes over me in February. I have a great time though. Going to listen to your collab with Klaus again.
Thanks for the wonderful comments on "So Far Along Your Way"... I'm so glad it resonated with you....
Hi there Cheryl. It's always fun writing with Liz. Thanks for the comment.
I've only ever met 3 FAWMers, and two of them long before I knew of a FAWM...Thanks for listening to "My Friend"!
Hey, thanks for taking the time to comment on my song "Tonight" - I try to write from life, so if it hits someone in the feels a little then I consider it a success! I'm usually a lyricist, but my goal is to have demos for all of my FAWM songs, but it's making getting them posted take a lot longer lol
Thanks for the great words on Time to let you go - actually, I started my album "Nine of Swords" for FAWM2018 - I actually laid out some cards, and this album concept came to life. It's all in this style - and it's all tarot - I have an old Rider Waite deck. My card for the challenge is 6 of wands, and I'm still workin on that one 😀
Hey thanks for your comment on "Outer Space", much appreciated 😁
Happy you enjoyed the crunch on Out of Mind! Thanks for listening, Cheryl.
Thank you for the comments on Mother of Swords, and thank you for the beautiful inspiration!!! I love the idea of pulling a card to see where it takes you. Later in then month I may revisit my or my wife's decks.
Hi Cheryl. Demo should be ready by tomorrow evening. I'll post it as a new song. I've been working hard ( at work ) and drinking some ( at home ) like a nice little goth. 😞
Cheryl, thanks for dropping by my soundboard and apologies for the delayed answer! Happy FAWM to you 😁
Thanks, Cheryl, for affirming my "Sit Around" song. Today at the gym, the trainer told us that new research says you should NOT stretch before exercise, contrary to what we have been told for years. Sheesh!
Thanks for listening to my song "Karma"!
thank you very much for your kind words on "Adrift".
😁 😁 😁 😁 !!!!
Thanks for listening and commenting on “The City Closes In”. Glad you liked it.
Thank you for your kind words regarding Tell Me You're Mine All Mine 😀
Thansk for stopping by and commenting on Hey it will be allright. <3
Not No Problem is now posted with vocals Cheryl.
I would like to be...we'll see what happens. Dealing with ear stuff at the moment, though.
The song I wrote with @ajna1960 all happened in an hour. It doesn't hurt that we write songs with each other all year long and have a very quick flow. Literally, WHILE she was writing lyrics I was just creating a musical track. So, I basically jammed her lyrics into my music. We both have the ability to work super duper fast.
Jell-O shots?? Interesting bio and I hope your work is everything you want it to be!
Aww, I'm glad you liked my tarot challenge song. I tried recording it tonight but my allergies are complicating things. I will let you know when I've got a recording. 😀
Thanks for the nice comments on "Dopey Hacienda." I am actually a HUGE Jimmy Buffett fan, we just disagree on the mobile home thing.
Thanks for visiting my FAWM opener!
The drums are straight CMI Fairlight sample. I pulled it up and did **nada** except say, "yep! This is it!" and gave it a loose rein.
Hi! I think you're thinking of Bloomington, Minnesota -- I live in Bloomington,Indiana (we don't have Mall of America or a Zoo!) Anyway, hi and happy fawm!!
Thanks for interesting comments on Full Moon on New Years Eve.
Ya never know what is around the corner.
At least I got a song out of it 😀
Hi Cheryl, thank you for your poignant comment on "You are no longer here". Sorry you find yourself connected with the subject. Hugs,
Thanks for your comment on my cat song. How sad to be allergic!
Thanks so much for your heart-felt comment. I consider it a success that my song moved you to tears. Thanks.
Thanks for your comment on "Down To The Ocean." Uep it's a FAWM song. Written right after midnight on Feb 1st. Since I've started using Band In A Box it's become realy easy to makes some great sounding tunes on the fly. Thanks for listening.
Thank you for the feedback on "Special Day," I relayed your birthday wishes as well. 😁 Here's to FAWM.
thank you 😀
Thanks-- best of luck to you too! 38 special...now those guys were the coolest back then!
Thanks so much for the Tarot card! Really interesting theme for me to use in my song ponderings. 😀
Best of luck for FAWM!
I'm gonna write "Three Pentacles: One Man's Struggle" and tell the whole story of my poor great grandfather (or maybe he was my great uncle depending on what works best in the lyrics!)
Cool Tarot card you picked for me! My great grandfather had three pentacles...but he had to have one of them removed in order to live a normal life! 😀
All right, here we go!
Thanks for listening and commenting om my song "I am nobodys child". Very appreciated
Thanks for listening!
