2019 is my 8th FAWM, and I have done the 50/90 7 times. Last year was the first year I actually made it past 14 (got about 20 in 5090 but I did take the middle month off) I plan to also write a few short songs, maybe that is cheating a bit but I like having some short songs for gigging, a musical equivalent of one-liners, to throw into the mix.
I write some comedy songs, some just whatever songs (most usually have a "gentle humour"), sometimes a kids' song and some short instrumentals and sketches. I like writing songs about everyday things.
Some songs are recording-only songs that I couldn't possibly do live but I also try to get some "keepers" for live gigs (where I perform mostly in the context of comedy nights with "original comedy singalong songs" or my favourite gigs - with friends round a campfire) ...
I have no idea what will come out of this month and I'm looking forward to some games, skirmishes and challenges.
Most of all I just like being part of it.

    You're right; "Hidden Intent" *was* wonky. I've remixed it so that things are (hopefully) clearer. Cheers!

    Morphs, always difficult. Wobbie, your words are yours; why not acknowledge "music based on a progression and melody by Tim Fatchen?" That'd do. We're none of us going to get rich on royalties....!!!!

    Oh and your questions are good ones, who knows the answer. I also did wonder what Johnny might wear, only he knows. As for Roy, it just doesn’t make any sense at all.

  • @majordanby  1 week

    Thanks for commenting on Sunday’s Clothes, not sure what was happening there. It was a byproduct of Yesterday’s Clothes that started with the Johnny verse to make Dan laugh: he asked for another verse. I toyed with referring to Mike and using the lyrics from Paint It Black by the Stones.

    Hey, Wobbie, good to see you. I just did this random Wikipedia article challenge and thought of you while writing it as I think you have the perfect voice for it, but as always here on FAWM, no pressure at all! https://fawm.org/songs/89791/
