Put music to a lyric? Polished a rough demo? Fulfilled the collaboration of your dreams?

Then this is the thread for you!

I shall begin with the song that begun it all: 'Don't Let it Start this Way' now has a demo, courtesy of @ductapeguy (hosted by @tcelliott due to uploading issues at my end/my own impatience): http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/36638

Found the vanished melody for "Coming To Meet". Strange DAW happenings...

"Feel My Love For You", lyrics-only by @Amanda West has now received a klaus-o-phonic treatment. It's a ballad with a whiff of 80's synth pads.

I gave a musical treatment to these wonderful words by @kahlo2013.

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37076

Here's the first of 10 demos for the lyrics I posted this weekend. Music in the Air http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37110

And the next one: Yup, That's Me. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37106

If You See Me Smiling, a skirmish lyric from the weekend, now has 1940s styled music...

I found a nice combo of telecaster and glockenspiel to accompany my skirmish lyrics to HOPE. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/36878

Musicated this fun lyric I did in a skirmish http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/36998

I managed to musicate 3 sets of lyrics today:

Good Old Days: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37074

Old Cedar Table: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/36864

and
99th Second Chance: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/36984

This leaves me with just 3 and a half sets of lyrics I need to add music to.

There is now a demo for Sapphire Life (prev called "Was It All True" and lyrics only) - a collaboration with Michelle Lockey, who isn't in 50/90 Sad
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37133

Just put up the demo for "Dark Clouds" performed and recorded by @helen Smile (prev a lyric only song).
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37098

And here's another one Smile SWG took my lyrics and created this rough draft of the song.
This time a collab with @Steven Wesley Guiles, "Don't Rock My World". Steven and I are the Future Kings Of Denmark, and this, I suspect, will be out next release Wink

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37524

And another Smile This time @coreystewart asked to use my lyric "The Moon Over Galway Bay", and the demo is defo one of my favs Smile
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37539

I was not at all satisfied with the track I made for Sunday's skirmish. I have worked on it some more. All the elements of the original track remain in some form. New elements have been added along with more production work.

Song, musicated, but then -- remade again, due to an idea from feedback-comment suggesting it if could be done:

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37600

Musickated one of my 1st weekend skirmish lyrics:
Pretty little picture: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/36935

Had some banjo fun with these wonderful words by @cindyrella:

Put a rough demo for my lyrics today.

The lyric "Endless Thoughts" now has a demo added to it, courtesy of the inimitable Mr @metalfoot
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37797

Formerly lyrics only, now musicated:
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37936

@coreystewart just musicated my lyrics to "Funk in Da Heat", so you best get your dancing shoes on Smile http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37804

I unexpectedly got time to actually "record" this (learn it Smile hahhh!), so replaces the, literally :), "record while writing" track I had (since all I could do and got the idea across, it seems).

So, this better sonically explains my thoughts, song #37936 again:
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37936

I NEVER sing and we all know I cannot write music, but a melody came to me...and I recorded it. And then I re-recorded it and that re-recorded version is up. Just keep in mind I am not a singer or a musician when you listen Smile

Another song born of a lyric post, again with @coreystewart. I am so chuffed with his musication !

Sea Breeze Drifting was from last Sunday's skirmish. I have extended, refined and remixed it.
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37930

Former lyric-only, now musicated, "Ignorance Like", re-titled "Ignor-ance-like":

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38063

And a new FKOD song is born http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38092. With @Steven Wesley Guiles
Previously lyric only.

Hi everybody, I had a lyrics only song...the only one on my page. I made an audio demo for that song today. I would appreciate it if you check it out. Thank you so much!

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37541

Today @metalfoot added some wonderful music to my lyric only song, something fishy. Check it out. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38133

P.S. to @swordsmith I wrote a song set in Wellington NZ. The ball is in your court to write one set in Midland, Ontario or Morden, Manitoba.

Worked up a guitar/banjo/vocal treatment of this one by @cindyrella:

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37931

Our second collab this 50/90 - her words are made for the kind of music I make!

And another one, this time for words by @srcoops:

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38233

I turned the heat down a little on this mix with DD, which was distorting something terrible.
For those who waited for it;
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37469

'On My Way Up' with @coreystewart http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38564
previously lyrics only, now musicated Smile

Not an updated demo, but a very lo-fi music video for a 50/90 song from this year: https://youtu.be/3edomlbdCoM

So today I did some additional recording/overdubs on four of my songs here (and recorded a fifth)
the ones that have additional material in the demos that are posted (harmonica overdub, and/or background vocals, etc)
include:
"My biggest fear"
"Irving, Sam & Dave"
"July 6, 1957"
"Fred Mertz Blues"

Here's a little ditty based on @Kristi 's lyrics.
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/39222

My previously lyric only song now has a full demo by the Future Kings Of Denmark Smile 'Kissed By Your Hell' http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38822 ty @Steven Wesley Guiles

Another previously lyric only song has now been musicated. This time some eclectic funky soul cat rap (new genre) 'I'm A True Blue Cat' with @coreystewart http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/39286

Another fun set of words by @cindyrella - I rocked out to them!

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/37518

This thread seems like a good place to hang around and do some commenting later. Often, updated songs don't get the listens they deserve.

Two collabs in a day! This time it's with country poet @Kingwood Kowboy:
