Artist Bio


I did not take part in neither last year´s FAWM nor 50/90 due to different obligations (moving into a new apartment, organizing my wife´s documents, additional stress at work etc.), but I missed it so much… I hope this year it will be a bit different, though my situation at work is still relentless, and which is much more important (and way a more positive distraction than my work): I am becoming a dad for the first time in my life, and it makes me toooooooo happy! This having been said, I really look very, very forward to being a part of this lovely community here again and to keeping enjoying in all your creativity and positive spirit.
Have a great February!

And as always in the past, too: if anyone likes any set of lyrics and feels inclined to put it to music, I will be very, very, VERY happy about that!

PS: My lyrics are just “rough ideas”… Please, feel free to “work on them” and change them in any way you like to make them fit to your music, if you like… thanks…

    Posted it in that CV-19 thread.

    And, yah, if you have a 5090 ID, let me know. If even you don't participate, maybe signup and have one on hand for stuff like this that comes up.

    Anyway, - I was wondering, "what to do with yet another drinkng song" 😀 and derUgo! 😀 CV-19 Challenge.

  • @ustaknow Mar 11

    Did you have an ID/Account on 5090? (I looked, nothing looks close 😀 )

  • @acousticmaddie  Mar 5

    Thank you for this years FAWM. It has been an honor and I will stoick around too listen a bit but maybe not as frequent as before. I am always reachable trough mail and Facebook /Maddie

  • @ustaknow Mar 3

    Hey, I had a moment (lost my initial reaction then this came; hate when that happens but wanted an OK first).

    I do see your email. But I have an OCD about doing stuff under a 500w light where it occurred, - just a thing with me. Not that I never speak offline, just with stuff where it occurred with folks I don't know, - yet 😀

    So, this may not all fit here, I'll try (it does). AND, you may not LIKE IT, notta problem. Just say so!, - and I'll only put a (derived from after an inspired reading note, no co-write); it happens, so just let me know.

    Pull yours up side by side to this and see where, why I went? Hear the music?

    The Re-write of the below now (c) 2020 Lyrics by ustaknow (alias), and Author Rossi

    === re-write ===

    ~ Don't Give Me Vodka ~

    Don't give me vodka, give me whisky,
    No don’t judge me, not to quickly
    You'll risk missing all the mixing
    Drinks, tonight, everything’s fixing

    Don't give me no house brand, top shelf, cracked new,
    Not, everything you got, will do, do, do…
    Maybe because I found her,
    And she didn't see all my clues…

    Give me… Give me Give me sweet Brandy!
    I'll drink her till the mourning comes, best of all the girls
    All the girls I'm warning of, I kissed whose hair
    Was brown ungowned, when the dewed morning comes,

    I'll won't take a wine or yellow mojito,
    No they won't stop me feel'n, feel'in this low…
    Then it'll be in - cognito, I'll leave you then
    And, nobody nobody nobody will know…

    I dive in, hopes sunken, now they'll grow,
    Dipped in shades of sweet sweat, and no brew foam…
    Some just, when drunk in
    Can work out, these life groans…

    (Chorus x2)
    Give me… Give me Give me sweet Brandy!
    I'll drink her till the mourning comes, best of all the girls
    All the girls I'm warning of, I kissed whose hair
    Was brown ungowned, when the dewed morning comes

    === eof ===
    Go/noGo? LMK!

    And, it could still zig-zag when actually put Chords to it, that happens, but, this is it otherwise.

  • @ustaknow Mar 2

    OK, great. It was 36. Additionally, I checked all combinations of you possible ID-Name and do not see you on 5090. That's fine, - I'll get you updated some how, - just post to this SoundBoard! 😀 to fyi-U.

  • @marthie Mar 2

    Thank you- Please add me as collab on the songs. I am aiming for 50 this year. I will send you the mp3’s when my admin hat is in place. Thank you for email info re skiing: there is a whole lot of saving going on!

  • @ustaknow Mar 1

    Hello, - fawm is over and all that; anyway, just trying to read, listen as I may. I see you are flexible. There's a song that looked interesting to me, however, there was a collaboration, musication on it. There can't be another one anyway since fawm is over, and not concerned with the listing here.

    So, does any of that matter?

    What I may do, and came to mind is to use it as a "starter" on 5090. Again though, - your thinking is?

    (And congratulations on being a new Father you comment! - good for you!)

    Also, make sure you care for my style, and again, I know I will rewrite. I don't mention the title, since just want to know in general as well; however realise indivitual songs may be an acception for some folks.

  • @moonraccoon  Mar 1

    I'm glad you enjoyed it 😀 This was a good FAWM!

  • @marthie Mar 1

    Any songs you want me to look at? Let me know...

  • @billwhite51 Feb 28

    Thank you Arthur. The album just would not be as good without Her Look is Like Fire/

  • @jcooper  Feb 28

    Hi Arthur. I’m afraid I Not going to get to this one if anyone else wants a go. I fly out to France tomorrow’s so am getting ready for that

  • @billwhite51 Feb 27

    I am puttingtogether a bandcamp albu of collaborations and youldlike to include Her Look is Like Fire and possibly Buenos Dias, with your permission. It is doubtful anyone will buy the album, but I do get a lot plays.

  • @willie70hawkins Feb 26

    Hey Arthur, I'm working on (Look at me disloyalty), I'm changing it to (An Unfaithful You), should be done soon.
    Thanks, Willie

  • @jcooper  Feb 25

    My pleasure arthur. Great lyrics !

  • @willie70hawkins Feb 23

    Hey Arthur, I just posted If, (If I Never Met You), I changed it a little bit, I hope you like it. It's not the best recording and it's one my most difficult melodies but I like it.

  • @waltermosch  Feb 22

    Bitte, bitte und danke! Freut mich das Dir das Ergebnis von Forever gefallen hat. Hat Spaß gemacht mit deinem Text zu arbeiten. Danke nochmal dafür!

  • @pvk2020  Feb 22

    Thank you for your writing talents. Some really good descriptions of how I feel. Lol. And I'm glad you like it.

  • @davidbreslin101  Feb 19

    My version of "Say or do something" is now up- a pleasure workin' with you!

  • @goldarrow  Feb 19

    Hi Arthur, Music to Will We Know Who Once We Were is now posted. I hope you like it. Thanks for the great lyrics!!

  • @sjbatavia  Feb 18

    Thanks for the comments on Waiting for the Sun!

  • @paulhenry  Feb 18

    Geez, Arthur, you're going to need a "Skip to bottom" on this page!

  • @valeriecox  Feb 18

    Wow Arthur. You are always so prolific. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my song.

  • @ferry0123  Feb 16

    Thanks for your kind words on 'Make it so', Arthur. Glad you liked it!

  • @andybalham Feb 16

    Glad you liked 'From Lunacy to Lunacy' Arthur, it was a pleasure to do and took me to an interesting musical place that I was glad to visit.

  • @rj1 Feb 14

    Hey Arthur! I too fell super short last year, and am still kind of just starting this month. Would you mind collaborating on some lyrics?

  • @berni1954  Feb 14

    So glad you liked my take on your "Universal Thoughts". It's always a bit worrying how the parent will take it when you have taken someone's baby and disciplined it in your own way 😁

  • @berni1954  Feb 13

    Thanks for your glowing comments on my "Brush with Fire".

  • @gwyn1234  Feb 13

    Cheers for your much appreciated...😀

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 13

    If you could add me as collaborator, that would be fine. Thank you so much!!

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 12

    Stranger gave me love tonight demo: Hope you like it! 😀

  • @scubed  Feb 11

    I appreciate the kind comment on “The Unexpected”!

  • @billwhite51 Feb 10

    H Arthur. Ill be posting Buens Dias tomorrow morning. I made a few minor adjustments in the lyrics. Hope you approve. If you want to hear it in advance, let me know and Ill give you the link before posting.

  • @klaus  Feb 10

    Hey Arthur! Congratulations. I'm so happy for you, all three of you. My best wishes to your new family. 😀

  • @klaus  Feb 10

    Hi Arthur. Thank for the comments. It's good to see you back with lots of lyrics. I'm counting 40 excluding the collabs! That's really something!

    And congratulations on becoming a father. I bet you're going to be a great Dad. 😀

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 9

    My pleasure! It was a beautiful story. Question: what’s the inspiration for the song?

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 9

    Updated the google doc with version 3. You should be able to download it from that link. Let me know.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 9

    Just sent 2 versions for "Ninita." I think I've decided on the accompaniment pattern. The only question is which melody. Version 1's melody is a bit too similar for me between verse and chorus, which is what Version 2 is intended to resolve. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

  • @frey Feb 9

    I've just posted it! My take on your gimme vodka, gimme whiskey lyrics 😝

  • @mattlitzinger  Feb 9

    Thanks for the kind words on "Don´t pour me another glass of wine". It was a pleasure to written the music for this song!

  • @dasbinky  Feb 8

    Thanks for the comment, man! I was just wondering if you were FAWMing this year, so I was pretty happy to click through and see you've won FAWM twice over and counting! I'll take some time soon and dig through your stuff to see if anything clicks with where my head's at!

  • @websheldon Feb 7

    Sent you something now to the email you mentioned 😀

  • @websheldon Feb 6

    I started something last night for Who We Really Are, going to try and work on it enough tonight to send you something before I go out later!

  • @websheldon Feb 5

    Ohh lyrics are the hardest thing for me to write so this would be perfect... Having a look through your songs that want music now... 😁

  • @marthie Feb 5

    hey glad you like it- I hope you are going to do some lullaby lyrics... how many notes can you sing? You know I have recorded about 20+ folk song lullabyes- but who's counting!

  • @jcooper  Feb 5

    My pleasure Arthur. Glad you liked it!

  • @lcad Feb 4

    Howdy! Great to see you back at it again too and my you've been productive 😀 ! Happy FAWM!

  • @oaksnprairie  Feb 3

    Hi Arthur, Glad to have you back--missed you last year. I did record my album in 2018, but I didn't end up using Space Travel. But thanks for letting me consider it.

  • @carlos Feb 2

    Arthur!! Welcome back! .. so glad I can look through your lyrics again... and will definitive a few to add some music ... 😀

    Hello Arthur, very good to see you. What's this...there is a zong on the board...I'll fix that. See you there.

  • @ampersandman  Feb 1

    Schön, dass du wieder dabei bist! Und Glückwunsch zur werdenden Vaterschaft 😉

  • @timfatchen  Feb 1

    So glad you're back! I think it ought to be compulsory for longtime FAWMers to put in their bio "I'm not here this year because..." so we know you haven't fallen off the perch!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 1

    Thank you Arthur. I Will get to it tomorrow. Its soon midnight here.

    ARTHUR! I'm SO glad you're back! I hope you got my email awhile back--NY/LA is one of the best tracks on my record that i'm releasing this year!! Let's collaborate again 😀
