Just for fun & for the memories I'm trying to recall, in roughly chronological order from year to year, all the FAWMers I've been so lucky and honored to have collab'd with in my thus far five (actually, more like four) years of FAWM. (I might've missed a few names but it'll come back to me as I keep thinking) Thank you all so much:
almost @timfatchen (for "The Road is So Long" but there wasn't enough time!)
FEB. 20 update: I think I might have to bow out here, friends. I fell last week, hit my head on ice and got a concussion. It was minor but I'm still having symptoms and the 2nd week is actually WORSE than the 1st (dizziness, headaches) and the computer screen only makes it worse.

@popmythology thanks for the comment on Money from the Sparks, I particularly enjoyed that one. I like using the muse tools, it takes some of the creative pressure off from spinning out of the air to more of an arranging and fitting within constraints mode, which I like. Let me know if you have any particular lyric (or lyrics) you'd like to bring to life, I set up a few placeholder songs for the march quiet time, since I was fairly inactive during Feb. Hope your FAWM went well! EDIT forgot to mention, the vocal is all me, but I have heard before that my falsetto sounds like a different person, so there's that.
Thanks for enjoying my Swing song.
I got the samples from EasyShed's own videos on YouTube. How nice of them to have material for us FAWMers to work with 😃
Really sorry about the concussion. I hope you feel better, sending you warm hugs. <3
I know, I don't think I've ever had this many songs done during FAWM, never mind at this point in the month! It's crazy!
See You In The Shadows…
It was good to see your name on my site! I’m not surprised I sounded different. Normally I’d record the instrumental alone and then add the vocal. That lets me sing directly into the microphone instead of being farther away from it like I was in this song. I only had a few moments today, and no doubt that will be the rule going forward too! 😊
Thanks for dropping by!
My involvement this year has been a day and a half at home in the studio, and then listening while driving all over. I shall take a peak at your lyrics soon, perhaps from the cozy glow of the next airport.
Or maybe we collab from scratch on "They Shall Overrun Us!" … a plaintive cry about where the breeding is happening.
I have a front row seat for the Dumb F song... my 17 year old nephew figured out how to lose his job at McDonalds, get someone pregnant, and find a way to never finish grade 10. He's a genius... especially at Fortnite, apparently.
Hi Daniel, so nice to see you back and thank-you so much for your super insightful comments. I think you should canonised as the patron saint for fawm! I remember you not being in good health a few years ago, hope you are feeling better!
Thanks, glad you liked it. Feel free to share away!
Thanks for the comment on "Tuhat haavaa", man! Nice to see you here again! : ) And yay for us!
I'll provide a translation to the lyrics when I have the time. Those translations you found seem to be fairly accurate, though! I actually started thinking that "A thousand wounds" sounds cooler than the "scars" I used : D I often feel like it's more honest to write in one's mother tongue, even though I do enjoy writing in English as well. It's also that writing in Finnish challenges myself more, 'cause then it all feels much more personal and I can't just hide behind cliches, if you get my drift : D
😉 the clickbait collab sure was fun! Yup, see you around ...
KIM KARDASHIAN’S BUTT!
Sure thing, I have definitely checked out your stuff in the past but I could not believe I was not "watching" you! not sure that happened, but I've corrected that error!
Thank you for your kind words. Yeah, I know a bit about getting the ol' butt kicked.
Thank you for your comment!
"I'm playing a very religiously devout paladin so this music feels perfect!" Haha, that's cool. Glad if I've inspired you. 😀
Haha thanks for you kind comments on my song, I’m glad my song won you over!
Hey Daniel! 😀
Thanks for the visit, the listen and the kind words!
And thinking about you too. All I can do is send healing vibes your way, my friend.
It's funny you'd mention the special edition release. I actually dabbled a bit in modding TS back in the day, so I think that if this EP does come to fruition, I might release it with the files to mod the songs into the game.
Also, a collab album would be sweet. Same Cage is one of my all time favorite FAWM songs. I've given myself a pretty full schedule this year for FAWM, so a whole album probably isn't doable, but I'd still probably have room for a collab if you're interested?
Yes, this was Exactly why I wanted to do your neighbor song!! I’m amazed how many people seem to be able relate to the misophonia topic. Your comment might be the longest one I’ve ever gotten on a FAWM song. Thank you 😀
Thank you so much Daniel... You are always such a ray of light in FAWM, and I really appreciate you taking the time to listen and give your thoughts. I certainly know the health struggles and I hope you can find a way to feel better. You are awesome and I'm glad you are here! 😀
Thank you so much for your kind comment.
Good to see you here again.
Admire your spirit, and hope the positivity of FAWM will be healing.
You still have a record here....a legend!
Thank you for nice comments on my MetaFAWM song. It is usually how I like to start
I will jump in throughout the month but my hubby is taking more care so it’s going to be in short bursts when I get some alone time. Great to see you here!!
Hi Daniel, Glad to see you're here again. Sending some good thoughts your way..
Thanks for your comments on So Glad You're Here. The solo instrument is the same ukulele plugged into the same amp: different amp model, louder, more reverb.
hi Daniel 😀 good to see you here again, thank you so much for thinking of me i am really flattered, however i must decline due to my allergy to all things religious 😉 but please let me know if you think of me again, would love to do SOMETHING with you in principle.
Thanks for the comment; yellow is the color of pus isn't it? The whole theme is all about the dead.
Thanks for the nice comment on Hovering Mountain. Funny you should mention Bethel Music, I'm pretty familiar with their stuff being a worship leader but I didn't hear the similarity til you mentioned it. Some of it is the big snare sound they have made their signature sound. I like that you got that vibe from this song though, I'll take that!
That's not Lair of the White Worm...that's my gal menstruating ;-p
Or perhaps I'm the one experimenting on you LOL. Thanks for the listens & the amazing comment, Daniel. It was a fun song to put together. Now I have to venture off into my next experiment. Happy listening, hope you get through your watchlist cue.
See You In The Shadows…
Great to see you here too! I hope FAWM will provide a respite this year for you from the real world; I know we're all looking forward to your comments and contributions!
Hi Daniel, good to see you here 😀 Good luck!
Good to see you around, Daniel, even if you're not able to be here a lot. Let me know if you need anything.
Welcome back, Daniel!
Daniel! Glad to see you back, my friend. I hope you are doing well & look forward to sharing the FAWM experience with you again this year. Take care.
See You In The Shadows…
Hey Daniel, good to see you around. Last year kicked my butt too man. Dealt with severe depression, anxiety and chronic insomnia that nearly ended my life. Had to make some major life adjustments after that and I'm handling everything much better now. (I think. LOL) Hope you can stick around, we love having you! Happy Fawming!
No matter what's going on, it's always so good to see you here 😁
Yes, an acoustic. I still play it like I play all my other guitars, so I'm not yet convinced it's going to make an awful lot of difference 😉
Hey Daniel, glad to see you back.
Yes, it's been a while. Time tends to slip through our fingers, doesn't it?
I can't guarantee my subliminal stimuli won't make you do some weird ritual. I'm not even sure what effect they will have on me. 😉
Wishing you all the best for all the ordeals you're faced with. I hope this FAWM will bring you plenty of good things.
It's great to see you back Pop!
Glad you're back, friend. Have a great fawm.
Daniel !!! Awesome to be back here with you. 🎵😎🎶
Daniel, even if you don't write much song, your commenting enthusiasm put a rocket up everyone and it's still going!
I think you need to wait until February to start making songs! 😉
Sending you love. Miss you!
Coming back this year? Hope things are well.
Hi Daniel. Life is a crazy thing; hope to see you around this year.
