Happy to be back for my second year.

Looking forward to writing, enjoying everyone's creations and collaborating.

I am a lyricist. I most often write lyrics first but enjoy writing to existing music too.

I resent the file. Sorry about that! I'll read your response and listen with fresh ears in a few days. Thanks for the thoughtful lyrics, Andrea!!

@jeff9

Hey, thanks from me, too, Andrea--for the like on our little Christmas number.

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'So Far'. I've been 'warming up' here on 50-90 to get restarted on the rock opera.

@yam655

Thanks for the comment on "Eat Your Face". In my case, I'm known to sing songs to my food. It's like a child having a chocolate bunny and singing a song to it as they devour it, but totally throwing the limits off of it so I can be a grown-ass man singing a song to his sandwich or filet of fish. (Though fish, like people and spiders, are only eaten in songs.)

I've also sung at least one song about being a sandwich. (It was the most depressing song I've ever written.)

[avatar]

Hi, Andrea. Glad you enjoyed Jeff's country treatment of Santa's Only Son. We are also pursuing a child's voice, so we'll see what happens. Thanks for commenting.

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on Please God, Intimate and The Sandbox. Regarding the Sandbox, you're so right. Many are good at judging but not good at tolerating.

[avatar]

I really liked your lyrics in Undefined! I just sent you a private link to our collab. I need your ears and ideas, Andrea :) No rush. Send me your edits and I'll revisit over the weekend. Have a beautiful day!

@mikeb

Thanks so much for all the song comments!

[avatar]
@hbusse

Thanks for the kind recommendation of @geoff61 and my collabs on the recommended songs thread!

[avatar]

Hi, Andrea. So glad you had a chance to listen Come Back. I, too, couldn't wait to hear what David would do with this lyric, and I'm really happy with the way the call and response worked out. I had a vague idea of what I wanted, but he really nailed it. Thanks for your nice comment!

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on Down in Dismal Hollow. I've been interested in old timey music lately.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments and pointing out my error! Funny how I didn't see it!

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for you comments! I look forward to finish "Sorting Darker Thoughts" after 50/90. I decided against producing a final version of the "Heavy Jam" as I cannot monitor and produce all. It would be unfair to produce only one version when people want it to be free use. But I look forward to other interpretations.

[avatar]

Thanks Andrea much appreciated πŸ™

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment on Santa's Only Son. Yes, that is exactly the situation I had in mind. Now, to see if it's possible to turn the lyric into a real song!

[avatar]
@aneil

thx for your comment on Please God. Have an awesome 5090

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on my latest collab with Simon.

[avatar]

Hi Andrea. Thank you. I've replied.

[avatar]

Thanks Andrea for your comments on the 'Under Desert Skies' song collab that I did with Mike. Hope that the drought conditions everywhere ease up soon

[avatar]

Thanks Andrea. Stages of life is not one of my best. I'll have to fine tune it a bit when back in Frankenstein's word laboratory. Cheers! : )

[avatar]

Hi Andrea, thank you so much for your kind comments on Reborn and Almost You πŸ™‚

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Andrea. I'm glad you're good with my treatment of your "I'm Always on the Defense". Thanks for giving me a crack at it!

[avatar]

Hi, Andrea

Thanks for commenting on my collaborator's version of Stage of Life.
Take a look at my lyric alone if you have a moment. There is a lyric posting only too. I would be interested if your thoughts are the same. The version you read was edited by my collaborator on this one.

[avatar]

Thank you for checking out the lyrics for "Look Sharp" I appreciate the feedback! Rich and David actually put together a great demo for this at https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1406 if you want to check it out!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thank you so much, Andrea, for your very kind comments on Vibrant Green Heaven. I hoped it wasn't too much of a cheesy treatment of that lovely, tender lyric by @cindyrella.

[avatar]

Thanks for checking out Used to the Illusion! I loved the heaviness of the instrumentation edward came up with.

[avatar]

Andrea! Thanks so much for your enthusiasm for Inconvenient Lovers. So nice to hear.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks for the kind words on Not To Live a Lie, Andrea. And as far as collaborating, I sent you an email.

[avatar]
@jeff9

My goodness, Andrea. I'm blushing at your reaction to I Can't Take Goodbye. Thank you so much for the encouraging words and for the honor of having you put it on the Recommendation Thread. Very gratifying to have such a response from a writer of your talents.

[avatar]
@brisk

I'm glad you liked Buried in a Schoolyard, I thought the words were so evocative.

[avatar]

Hi Andrea. Thank you for your kind comment. Looking forward to collaborating with you again. I've posted a note in my liner notes.

[avatar]

As always Andrea thanks for your comments and kind words. I do write some happy upbeat lyrics but must admit that is not my go to πŸ˜€

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Andrea, for your kind comments on One More Empty Seat. I know it's kinda ragged & rough, but sort of on purpose.

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on Crossroads. It can be a tough subject, but I am glad were able to understand the character's situation in the write.

[avatar]

Andrea, thanks for the nice comments on Come Back. I'm really looking forward to this as a song.

[avatar]
@jamkar

Thank you for your kind comments on my surprise at work. Long time ago, but still a public health risk.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Hey, there, Andrea. Thanks for stopping by for a listen to Clock Into Our Life and I Hate Love (both versions) and for your very thoughtful and kind comments. Let's maybe do one together some time.

[avatar]

Got it - thanks

[avatar]

Okay...I'll post it...cheers!

[avatar]

Here's what I've done Andrea...if you approve, do you want to post it or would you prefer I did? I really enjoyed working on your lyrics...πŸ‘

[avatar]

Thanks Andrea, will do...

[avatar]

Hi Andrea...I'm working on your fine lyrics and just wanted to know how you wanted to be credited on Soundcloud i.e surname or just @andrea ?

[avatar]

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments, Andrea!! <3

[avatar]

Thanks Andrea...I'll see what I can do and let you know...πŸ‘

[avatar]

I enjoyed making Ready or Not. Fun trying new voices and music styles, using different instruments and sorting out Garageband loops. Just having a fun summer playing. I keep listening to the fine selection of styles and instruments used by the people here. It is opening. Up worlds to me.

[avatar]

Thanks for the kind words. No, I don't think I have your email. Please just send me a 'hi" at wolfkier(AT)gmail(DOT)com and I'll respond with an attempt to answer your question...
Hugs.

[avatar]

Thanks for listening to both versions of I Hate Love and weighing in on which one you liked better. I keep changing my mind about my favorite one! Jeff was great to just dive into this lyric and interpret it in more than one song. Very fun collab!

[avatar]

Hi, Andrea. Thanks for your compliments on You Take Me There. It was a long-term goal of mine to have a song with Wacha. I'm glad she picked it up. πŸ˜„

[avatar]

Gotcha. Thanks for getting back to me πŸ˜€ Thank you also for your lovely feedback on I Run and This Tattoo Is Not For You. I really appreciate it!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks for dropping in on Predator and Prey, Andrea!

@mikeb

Thanks for all the song comments!

[avatar]

Thanks for all the listens and comments. I always appreciate what you have to say.

@oswlek

I figured you were talking about the metaphorical musical birth canal. πŸ˜ƒ

[avatar]
@oswlek

You're right, I can see the button now. Doh!

[avatar]
@arkka

Thank you!

[avatar]
@nadine

Thank you Andrea! My DAW is a great tool for sketching, but I won't finish a song with MIDI guitars and my singing. I just can't stand the sound whereas bass and drums became tremendously better in the last years. I hope somebody helps me to turn it into something better someday. I'm happy that you enjoyed my song from a songwriter and lyricist perspective. This is what counts πŸ˜€

[avatar]

You are very welcome, Andrea. Totally likewise, thank you for all your comments and support.

[avatar]

Thank you for listening!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Ditto from me, Andrea!

[avatar]

So glad you got a kick out of Cranky Old Men. Thanks for the comments!

[avatar]

Thank you so much Andrea for your kind comments, for sharing your thoughts and for letting me know regarding our collaboration on Lullaby :)

[avatar]
@nadine

Thank you! To be honest, I was just ranting and wrote all my thoughts down.

[avatar]

Hey! Awesome! Feel free to email them to me and I'll check them out :)

[avatar]
@cts

You can count on it, ma'am! Most definitely!

[avatar]
@cts

Sooooo...are you on vacation?

[avatar]

Andrea, Thanks so much for your comments on But I Did. I love the dimension that Dom brought to the project. So glad you liked it.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments on my movie title effort. Was a fun prompt to get

[avatar]

Thanks Andrea! I just wanted to let you know the "character" I will be singing from :)

[avatar]

Thank you for your kind comment on my collab with Patty, Andrea!! I look forward to our collab, too :) I've been sketching out ideas. I've been inspired by the show "Maid" for your lyric. I'll email a demo soon to see if you like the direction.

[avatar]

Andrea, So happy you like the song version of But I Did. I felt so lucky to get to collab with Kate on this. She did a fantastic job of bringing the lyrics to life. She made it really special. Thanks for your comments.

[avatar]
@nadine

Yeah, all cool! Talk soon and enjoy 🀘

[avatar]
@nadine

No worries on taking time sone time for the blues. I am not sure if we can pull everything off during 50/90. I'm looking forward to your ideas! Are you OK with publishing on SoundCloud, YouTube and Bandcamp?

I wish I could help you on "Another side of me", but unfortunately I'm not into power metal these days and I can't play a real electric guitar. These type of songs need a strong classically / musical trained vocalist. I hope you find somebody πŸ˜€

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for your comment on "The Wind". I was very melancholic when I composed the instrumental, so it just flowed with John's lyrics. He did a great job!

[avatar]

Andrea, I'm glad you could relate to the lyrics for But I Did. Let's see how Kate handles this one--when she gets back from vacation.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment on 'The Bad Stuff'. Made a nice change to come from a sarcastic angle rather than just a straight protest lyric.

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind words! Will check out all your lyrics tonight, although I have no doubt that they're all amazing!

[avatar]
@nadine

Super cool, @andrea and @davidtaro . I look forward to see this happen 😊
@andrea can you please send us both a mail, so we have your contact data and terms (crediting, editing, constraints, uploading...)?
@davidtaro you'll get the information on instrumental etc. asap.
I update the song info. All other details via mail. Have a nice weekend!

[avatar]

Hey @andrea and @nadine I’m more than up for doing a bit of singing based on some of Andrea’s lovely lyrics πŸ˜„ haven’t managed to work with you yet, so would be a pleasure!!

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for your comments! I am so happy that you enjoyed my blues songs. Thanks also for the offer on lyrics for my "Quarterlife Blues". I am okay with waiting. But since I won't do the vocals (cause I sing worse and never felt as singer), I will ask @davidtaro if he already has a vision or not. I am okay with teaming up with both of you, or any. You both have skills, it's just a matter of communication.
Enjoy your vacation 😊 And yes, dust off your guitar and try. It's worth it. I have a completely different approach than on piano.

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on Beyond Repair. Glad you like it! : )

[avatar]
@panch

Thanks for letting me have a go at The call of the void. If you let me have your email address I'll send you a demo (it may be a day or 2). My email is markpearsonmusic@yahoo.co.uk

[avatar]

Thank you for all of your kind comments, Andrea! I really appreciate it. Your email was received. Sorry it took me longer, but I was thinking of what to say:)

[avatar]

Thank you for listening to "Speak," and for your lovely comments :)

[avatar]

Andrea, Nice of you to comment on Broken. I agree with you that David's vocals were pretty darned awesome! I enjoyed working with him.

[avatar]

Thanks and you didn't miss it!

[avatar]

Thank you so much, Andrea for your beautiful comment on my full moon piano piece. It's always interesting to read your comments.

[avatar]

Thanks for the encouragement. GarageBand has been a steep learning curve. I have often wished I took the time years ago to learn how to read music or play an instrument. Even though i have time on my hands now, learning technical things can frustrate me. But i had a lot of fun singing to a retro guitar and fancy drums. So it was a good morning.

[avatar]

So glad you liked Baby, What About Me. I love the way talented musicians and vocalists can take a lyric sheet and turn it into something! :)

[avatar]

Thank you, Andrea, for your comments on Small Dreams. So glad you liked it. Sounds like you have some more songs in the works. I'll look forward to hearing them.

[avatar]

I haven't forgotten you. I am just sorting out some rainy day projects and holiday planning. It Wasn't Me will be along in another day.

[avatar]

Thank you so much, Andrea! I'd love to read your revised lyrics so we can work on something together this summer. Are you posting them here or would you like to email them to me? Either way works for me.

[avatar]

Thank you so much Andrea for your beautiful comment on my collaboration with Kate on I'll Take a Train. It was amazing to hear Kate's vocals.

[avatar]

Andrea, So glad you got a kick out of Damn, Damn, Damn (A Love Song.) Thanks for taking the time to take a look.

[avatar]

Sure thing. My email is nathangerry@gmail.com. I'm looking for to your lyrics!

[avatar]

Thank you thank you thank you for your wonderful comment on β€œEverything Shines Forever.” So grateful for the feedback. You all are making me seriously think about using that song in place of my title track for my forthcoming EP. I have you all to thank for that.
I am egregiously behind on listening to music. I will do so soon. Thank you for your patience. Keep writing. You got this! And again, thank you!

[avatar]

Andrea, I loved your responses to stephenwordsmith's I'm Not Sick. And thank you for your comments on Bonnie and Clyde. I'm glad you think it works.

[avatar]

Thank you so much for taking your time to listen to my first song :) I’m happy that you loved it!

[avatar]
@brisk

Thanks for being nice about Second Chances. I think my hatred for the song has cooled a bit now - glad you like the chorus, I think that's my favourite bit too!

[avatar]

Hey! Welcome to you too! Definitely up for another collab, your lyrics are awesome!

[avatar]

Nice!! My all-time favorite Broadway show is Phanton Of the Opera. Amazing!! Cool, looking forward to hearing it! :)

[avatar]

I'm glad you resonated with the ideas (mostly)! Take your time with getting back to me and I'm looking forward to what comes to you

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind comments on my Old Friend lyric. Glad you enjoyed it so much. I certainly enjoyed writing it. :)

[avatar]

Awesome! I'm glad to be paired with you. Here's a couple topics that could be fun:

1) your worst fear
2) a perfect day
3) your desert island CD
4) an ode to your favorite food
5) should I grow out my leg hair

Maybe one of these or none of these resonate but let me know πŸ˜‹

[avatar]

I used to live in the Riverdale section of The Bronx 1999-2005 πŸ˜€

[avatar]

leave it for a week or so, everyone is bedding in. Listen to songs and if you like then tell them and say I'd love to collab if you are up for it, check out my lyrics when you have time :-)

[avatar]

thanks for the read and comments Andrea, I'm a little behind on what's posted so far but I'm gonna read yours next :-)

[avatar]
@hbusse

Thanks so much for the listen and kind comment on My Perfect Friend! You are the 2nd person to mention the musical theater feel, which I hadn’t thought about before but am starting to see what you mean! 😊

[avatar]

Hi, Andrea, Thanks for checking out Broken and for saying it felt real. That's what I was going for. It's always a fine line between Too Raw and Too Safe. Looking forward to your next lyric.

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on my first 50/90 song - didn't want to bring (heart)tears to you!

[avatar]

Hello, Andrea! Thanks for your your Mold Flower comment!

[avatar]

Andrea, I'd love to collaborate on something. Let's plan on it...

[avatar]

Thanks for voicing yourself on Mass Murder. Glad you liked the bridge.

Anf thank you for commenting on The First was the Last. It really was! lol

[avatar]

Thanks for your listen and comments on "Nicholas Cage"! This was a really fun one, shouting that name over and over turns out to be pretty cathartic

[avatar]

Hey Andrea!

[avatar]
@cts

Hey there! Welcome back! I anticipate with great delight what music will come to your mind. I'm sure it's going to be epic, if not killer!

[avatar]

hello!

[avatar]

Hey, Thanks, Andrea! I'm glad you're here, too. Looking forward to hearing your songs!

[avatar]

Hi Andrea! Welcome back πŸ˜€ Happy songwriting this summer!
