Re: Ye Olde Lyric Marte - SF1000

A Grand parade Stop the clocks, on the rocks Time to stick me in a box Come on take a shoulder if you got six to spare Dressed in black, kicking back Cut me off a little slack Offer up a wing and a prayer No time left for the right way of living Shackled to the choices I made You can’t take a penny ...

Re: Ye Olde Lyric Marte - Almost No Regrets

Head first it’s the only way I know to go Arms spread wide feeling on display Nowhere fast, cause it ain’t my first rodeo Ain’t no stopping now, gotta find my own way I’ll take the risk, not the easy way out I’ll take the hard way every single time No time for second guessing, second takes or window...

Re: Ye Olde Lyric Marte - Your Undoing

Its 3am at the Mirage and the devil’s playing dice Blowing three times for luck while sipping whiskey over ice A girl upon each arm a wry smile upon their face Going too fast to slow down while never keeping pace You don’t count wins and losses, as long as you can play A chip a chair a chance at lea...

Re: SpinTunes 22 - March 2 to May 6, 2024

So I can’t sing confidently, play bar chords, use music editing software, read music, understand music theory, rap, make beats or have good taste but I do enjoy writing lyrics based on the prompts. Would anyone like to do 95% of the work for 50% of the credit and form a team??? Jokes aside, if anyon...

Re: Why go to sleep only to (Wake Up Again reviews)

Any time - you did a great job with them and from the reviews I read I am going to wear my “add some sweet sweet Doorslike Organ in there” as a badge of pride :).

But you did the hard work turning a song written like Nickelback into something that sounded like a forgotten gem from the late sixties.

Ye Olde Lyric Marte - Blood and Fire

It’s 3am, can’t sleep, my thoughts surround me Sit up and stretch, distract my fickle brain Teeter at the edge Do I forget or do I dive in Refractions of truth shone through rose tinted pane.

Re: Pronouns profile field added

The normalisation argument is that if only people who are NB use pronouns then they might as well have a big sign on their head singling them out as NB. If most people use them then it doesn’t single anyone out. Same logic as why it’s useful when heterosexual couples to use partner when referring to...

Re: Pronouns profile field added

So I don’t live in the west coast of US and I don’t agree with you. Take a second and a step back for a moment. You want it to be an optional field, the option is there to put a dash, a single key stroke, about 300 keystrokes less then you have spent asking for it to be made optional and a dozen les...

Re: Pronouns profile field added

It’s also about just making it normalised so it doesn’t single people out. Which becomes exclusionary in itself.

Re: Where Gen X'ers are moving to (Surprise, Arizona prefight)

Hmm, very quickly put together! Not at all where I was going with the idea, but your way works too. Mine was to be about this strange small town trying to draw in tourists with these obscure attractions. I was just going to have a long list of them, was going to go more surreal. jsyk, I STILL don't...

Re: Where Gen X'ers are moving to (Surprise, Arizona prefight)

No idea for lyrics this time. So I tried Jim's approach; building a melody from the words. I used my first take live demo (cut down a little). Just me, my 12 string and my flaws. Nothing to win, just to be in. I have no real musical talent beyond occasionally stringing together some nice sounding w...

Don’t have the chops or equipment to put in an entry but write something based on the prompt.
