Influences: mostly feelings from a certain few fictional characters for lack of their own complex depths of emotional turmoil, mysterious past and interesting love affairs. (shamelessly stolen from AliceMarieMusic's tumblr, check her out)
I haven't been writing as much as I'd like. I'm so excited to throw myself into FAWM as much as possible this year!
If you would like to put music to any of my lyrics, feel free! If you have music you would like lyrics to, contact me! I check my email nearly every day! If you want to collaborate at any time please ask me! I would LOVE to!
So glad you liked my setting of your "Not Nice".
I am really pleased with how it turned out. One unusual thing was the structure. I worked on the first three sections (A - B - C) before I started on the rest and I discovered that the next verse couldn't be sung to the A part and the following section couldn't be sung to the "B" part. I scratched my head a bit and then realised that I could sing the 4th section to the "B" part and the following 5th section to the "A" melody. Now that is a structure I have never used in a song before. So the final structure ended up as A B C BA C C. And IMHO, it worked!
I just posted the song. I hope you like it.
I had to make a few tweaks to the lyrics to fit my melody, but none that took it off in a direction you didn't envisage.
I changed the chorus a little. I thought the rematch should come at the end, since, as you wrote, it the fight came after the rematch. Boxing in the bizzarro world, perhaps 😉
Working on Not Nice. I hope you like it. Watch this space.
