    Re PULL MYSELF UP lyrics, like your music thoughts. Any ideas?

  • @kathym  Mar 4

    I'm finally catching up on all of the overdue thank you notes for having stopped to consider my song Sweet Louise. I take all comments to heart and truly appreciate everyone's comments. All the love.
    You wrote HOW MANY???

  • @kvnwoodruff  Mar 3

    I was shocked to go to your page and scroll through the insane collection of songs. I wasn’t expecting a lot with this volume, but everything I’ve clicked on so far has been fantastic. Great work!

  • @srcoops  Feb 28

    You are so kind to pick up so many of my lyrics. they are always made better by your creative efforts. Thanks!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 28

    Of course I couldn't hate it. Just the opposite!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 28

    Of course. Go for it!

  • @rbmarty000  Feb 27

    Thanks for your kind comments..
    Amazing .. over 120.. plus time for comments .. Amazing

  • @berni1954  Feb 26

    Glad you liked the song. The neighbours are particularly unlikeable. What languages does your neighbour translate out of / into.

    I translate from Catalan, Spanish, French and occasionally Portuguese into English.

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 26

    You offer is very well received. I, too, figure it's probably too late for FAWM, but I'm exciting about writing new songs. I expect to pop in here from time to time in the coming months. I don't see an email link on your profile. If you're comfortable, feel free to email me at roostertree(at)gmail(dot)com, and we can keep in touch in the time before next FAWM.

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 25

    Thanks so much for your comment on Ajax 409!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 25

    You sure made it work!

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 25

    You’re welcome re file size - glad it was helpful!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 24

    Sorry. Don't worry about it. Hopefully it'll work tom

  • @cindyrella  Feb 24

    I hope you didn't break it 😁😅

  • @cindyrella  Feb 24

    Sure!

  • @seemanski  Feb 21

    Holy Moses, 110 songs. How do you find the time? That's impressive.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    Thank you!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    No, I don't have anyone else, so go for it!

  • @srcoops  Feb 19

    You always enhance the stuff I write with your beautiful interpretations. Thanks for another very nice piece of work on A Lifetime Passes.

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 19

    You're welcome Gordon. I like the tune and the singing.

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 18

    No worries Gordon, I'll figure it out

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 18

    Could you pi g me chords to Wrong Side of Town, save my poor ears a bit.

    Daveyboy103@gmx.com

    Or post them on my sound board?

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 17

    We are of like mind 😀

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 17

    That article on Safronov is indeed chilling. Here in Canada, the government just announced that it will require media outlets to "register" with them. I don't know what the world's coming to.

    Thank you for allowing a parallel song with Downward Slide. Some musicians guard the lyrics they write for, and some lyricists only want one musical version of their words. Which is fair--it's their work. But since I started FAWM 4 years ago, I've loved hearing different artistic interpretations of the same words, and I always appreciate great words to write for. Thanks again 😀

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 17

    Thanks for commenting on Hedges, I don't think I'll ever get tired of the Eat the Rich meme.

  • @hizuvi Feb 16

    Thank you for your comment, really appreciate it!

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 16

    Wow Gordon I thought I was crazily prolific, thanks for your kind comments

  • @smokeyjoe5804 Feb 16

    Thanks for your comment! That's quite a list of compositions there!

  • @srcoops  Feb 14

    The boys will do something else.Thanks for doing it and speaking so well of it.

  • @srcoops  Feb 14

    If my boys don't want it I would be happy to have you do No Honor.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 14

    Of course I don't mind! You are so creative!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 11

    Don't even hesitate if you like one of mine. Love it!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 11

    Yes!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 11

    Go right ahead! Gosh,. I cannot keep up with you!

  • @marthie Feb 11

    Wow! You’ve been busy! Thank you for listening

  • @mikeb Feb 9

    Thanks for the comment on my week 2 challenge song!

  • @srcoops  Feb 7

    Good job on Down. I wrote this in a weak moment. Didn't really like it much but you gave it some life. Unfortunately, it is all true. Thanks

  • @srcoops  Feb 7

    Go ahead with Down

  • @srcoops  Feb 7

    Go ahead with Down

  • @apolez3 Feb 6

    Right her voice is exquisite in both versions... Just wanted to let you know I think you grasped it now tho? homeward bound is like going to die & the after. Just wanted to clarify that.. think translation was lost in the French Version. It would be fine if it possibly had a just yet after I think .. but she sounds so beautiful regardless.

  • @apolez3 Feb 6

    Ps, the French Version Is a bit different than the English ...
