Josh Woodward · 17 years, 9 months ago
Yep. I have a harder time with lyrics than music, but it's getting easier.
zil Back · 17 years, 9 months ago
and his musics are nicely nicely. I like to play my joshwCD at work, rock on.
Adam Hartfield · 17 years, 9 months ago

I can't even manage poetry, so songs are wayyyyyyyyyyyy off my horizon.

Talcott · 17 years, 9 months ago
because I do write poems, and have ideas to convert them into songs, but I can't bring myself to write songs that I know I won't sing/preform.

Once I learn to play something I'll start leaning towards more songish writing, so that's why this got an "other".

i stopped for a while after college, because i was sick of the fake natalie merchant/ani difranco nonsense i always wrote. but i started up again this august. it's still nonsense, but i think it sounds a bit more like me now. and it makes me happy.
lawrence · 17 years, 9 months ago
well, I don't write it, usually. I just come up with it and play it. I really should start writing some more of it down. I just wish I could write lyrics.
George E. Nowik · 17 years, 9 months ago

i can write music until the cows come home.  i can't write lyrics to save my soul.

I wrote a couple when I was sixteen. . . .

Actually, the first good song I wrote was inspired by the philly folkfest where I saw Fruvous for the first time. A sign?

I write poetry.  Melodies are beyond me.

I've written a couple of sets of lyrics which will shall never see the light of day. No tunes but they seem like they could fit a power ballad and a country and western song. God were they bad.

 Basically my finest moments have been the Heather Graham filk and of course "All The Cows Are Dead"

Sad really.

i *heart* melindas musics...
Bruce Rose · 17 years, 9 months ago
Back in my hair metal/power ballad days, I wrote a couple of lyric sets, but didn't know how to write the music.  Still don't know how to write music, but I know how they're supposed to sound.  Sadly, I never had the hair for that type of music. 
Wintress Back · 17 years, 9 months ago

You know...I've known you for, oh, I dunno.  A WHILE now and not only have I never seen or heard these lyrics, but I was never even aware that you made such an attempt.

I write songs all the time. They suck, I usually forget them right away, and I can't really sing or play them.
stealthlori Back · 17 years, 9 months ago
He even invents bands that he then forgets the names of. :D

Oh! Right-Wing Christian Pod People! That was one of them!

You got it! It is a Batnose side project.
Annika · 17 years, 9 months ago

I usually get about half way through a song and get bored with it and start on something else.  I've got some great half songs floating around though.

Nick Collins · 17 years, 9 months ago

I have gone through many stages of writing music:  I first began writing little acoustic political anthems, followed by nice little love songs (after which I destroyed), followed by comedic songs (of which I still play at some concerts), followed by deep electric blues, mainly Texas Roadhouse blues style (example:  Stevie Ray Vaughan) and experimental jazz fusion style (JHE and Mahavishnu Orchestra style, to the best of my talent) and finally, I settled into classical guitar pieces, in which I am currently happy in performing.  Thank you for reading this quasi-chronology of my songwriting history

I wrote a song for my wife called "I'll be your Eric Idle.  She married me anyway.  If you want to laugh at me me go to to hear it!
It's a girl! Back · 17 years, 9 months ago
 See but that song made me laugh. I actually married you in spite of the one called "Ellen"  which made my ears bleed.
Wintress · 17 years, 9 months ago
I played the 'cello for a few years.  I have one now.  I would never, EVER attempt to put lyrics to the squawks I get out of that baby...
Rachel Marie aka RAI · 17 years, 9 months ago
I've written about a kagillion songs, but I never finish them because they never seem good enough to me. :o(
