50/90! I will do my best to participate as fully as possible but work and family obligations are busier than usual. I will listen as much as I can, comment when I am able, and post some lyrics and songs when time allows, and, as always, look forward to connecting and collaborating with you!

BIO: After many years of loving deeply, learning broadly, laughing freely, and living fully with a wild and crazy muse as my guide, I began writing songs and started to play music as inspired by a fellow FAWMer. We made an album together. That was in 2013. I have since had the remarkable opportunity to collaborate writing music with many awesome FAWMers far and near who inspire and delight me with their talents and passion.

I am grateful to you, my fellow FAWMers, for your inspiration, encouragement, and generosity! You never cease to impress and amaze me. I am sure this FAWM will be no exception! Enjoy!

Always open to collaborations, challenges, and co-writing! Happy to write lyrics for you or have you put music to mine. Would love to do more co-writing as well.

ALL LYRICS are OPEN for COLLABORATION unless I note otherwise. Just let me know! I am open to any musician’s minor tweaks and musical ideas! Also happy to share my ideas for a melody if that is helpful to you. Thanks so much for looking!

Hey, Liz - I have no idea how you messed up. I know I was supposed to morph one set of lyrics you did, though I think it was only the two of us on the morph. I'm back in town now and can do it if you're still interested.

[avatar]
@beacon

I feel I let you down so much by not taking a set of your fabulous lyrics and setting them to music this 50/90. Alas, it was a time that I needed to take a bit of a rest from writing, but I promise you I will rectify that in the future!

[avatar]

Hi, Liz, Just saw your comment on You Take Me There. So glad you like it! I agree that @wacha's performance is quite sensual in her delivery, and she captured the feeling I was going for in the lyrics. Thanks!

[avatar]

Hi Liz! A looooong while ago I asked permission to write music for your lyrics Good Enough https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/3439. I have been working on this since then, making steady progress - but sadly way too slow to finish within 50/90. It's one of the projects that I don't want to let go at the end of this challenge. I've created a song entry for it and added you as collaborator. Let me know what to do with it: Do you like it? Should I finish it? Would you like to share it, even in its unfinished form?

[avatar]

I'd love to join you at a fish boil. Carmen would love it even more. I'm a reluctant pescatarian (people here panicked when I said I was vegetarian, so I eased into fish eating so I could get invited to meals). However, Carmen adores fish and makes a dish that is not a million miles from a fish boil. (Though generally, I am the chef, and she gets to eat vegetarian, most days, and like it or lump it 😁)

Who knows when we'd be able to come over, but thanks for the invite anyway. If you two are ever near Barcelona, you'd be welcome to join us at our local fish restaurants, that serve fish caught that morning and brought ashore at our town.

@roddy

Hello. I have posted some music for your lyrics 'A success story of sorts.' I found them very moving and tried to do a kind of 'Gilbert and Sullivan meets Noel Coward and the Beatles' piano tune for them. Hope you like it. https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/10571

Thank you so much for listening and commenting on my three songs. Your very positive feedback makes me want to write more, once the pain from my hip operation subsides. I don’t expect I would ever be as prolific as you. I am way behind on listening (deakling with the sudden death of a close family member) but I really appreciate your encouragement.

@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on my skirmish song, 'On To Hollywood'!

[avatar]

Thanks, Liz! Was fab to read your comment on my "I'm through with You" lyric--the fourth installment on the Lyric Morph 3 challenge. So glad that you found my chorus strong, filled with vulnerability and honesty, and that my verses presented a clear, powerful message for you as a reader.

Great job starting Lyric Morph 3 off with your seed lyric "I Have Failed to Find Myself," which changed much by the time I needed to write/contribute/morph, and shortly thereafter you had ended the challenge with a nice meaningful relationship flourish of sorts in your "Come Closer" lyric.

Happy future lyric writing!

[avatar]

thanks Liz. ill get to work on it tomorrow,

Demo now posted for "The Stolen Land" - senior moment before 🙄

Hi again. I am not much of a movie watcher, and have not seen Mrs. Harris. Maybe like her, I will go someday too. Happy you enjoyed The Picture on the Wall.

[avatar]

"The Stolen Land" is up. Hope you like it.

PS It nearly wasn't today. Your link to those jolly chaps on barges took up most of my morning as I followed them around places I knew well - such as Liverpool. What a find! 😋

Re: Passing Me By Blues
Glad you liked it.

[avatar]

Liz! You've done 126 songs and you still have time to listen and comment? What a music machine! Thank you so much for your comments on Santa Has A Family. I really like the way Jeff ran with the lyrics. So glad you liked it, too.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Oh, wow--thanks for the kind comments on A Second Look and Santa Has a Family. Those encouraging words make my day.

[avatar]

Hi, you did receive the file as you already replied saying you liked it (on 20/08)... I will resend anyway...

[avatar]

YOU SAID:
" Love this song and feel compelled now to read about the Birmingham cabals!"

Wonderful typo! I am not sure but I think the "cabals" of the area have been dealt with in the TV Series "Peaky Blinders" (which I haven't seen. Violence as entertainment is not our scene). 😜

[avatar]
@mikehex

Thanks so much for your comments and encouragement, on "Forgiveness" and other tracks

[avatar]

Would it be redundant to say to you that you have a way with words!? Not just in song, but in comments too :) "Embracing internal strength" Yes!

Also, read your squirrel comment. 🐿 I also feed the squirrels because they are constantly in the bird feeders. If I leave them special treats, they leave my bird seed alone. Plus, they're so darn cute!!

[avatar]

Glad you liked my "Train Wreck" song. I do so like playing with extended metaphors 😁

Thank you for listening. I have to tell you I found a choral group with an arranger/producer/piano player built in to do our Christmas album with. I have to meet with him to discuss it. I'll share a link of what they sound like
I'll also share another- but they don't have a producer built in...

Thanks and yes it could be country I think.

@beacon

Well, that's the way I hear Badger State people say it! ;-)

[avatar]

Have you read many of the Ruth Galloway books? We have bought every one since the series started. They're very addictive, even if they have their faults (put your protagonists in scenarios it is impossible to escape from in every other book, then somehow they are rescued. But they are scenarios shared with 90% of suspense movies these days).

Plus the daughter (hope that's not a spoiler) is incredibly precocious for her age in each book).

However, the cast of characters are so likeable and believable that you are willing to forgive the author a lot 😉

[avatar]
@ohljazz

Thank you for your kind comments on my songs! I appreciate the careful listening

[avatar]

I don't recommend the book "The Revenge for Love". It is far too much a product of its times (1930s). The author and his opinions loom large throughout. It is overwritten to the extreme (sub Joycean prose) and the author's politics foreshadow the kind of post-Thatcher & Reagan era we are still forced to live through. It's proof that one good idea can lurk among a lot of dross - but doesn't make up for the vituperation towards the left that abounds.

[avatar]

Kahlo, your comments on Night Comes for Everyone are So flattering! Thank you! It was a total pleasure working with Eric. And look at that impressively long list of songs you have here! Way to go!

@sbs2018

Liz - your comment about "Make sure you use the bathroom first" made me chortle. It's so exactly true. Trying, trying, trying to let them be their own people, but things just slip out....Thank you

@davidkav

Hi, Liz! I’ve been really really really horrible with getting back to people during this process. I was not expecting such a quick response to my songs let alone such wonderful words. I do not take your time nor your critiques lightly. Nonetheless: thank you for your kind words on both “Are We Really Sure About This?” and in “Getting Deep Into The Weeds.” So much love and gratitude!!
p.s. 112 songs?!? WHOA! KUUUUDOS!!! 🤗🤗🤗

Hey Liz, saw your notice, re: lyric morp 3 on my board mentioning @wolfkier is up nx w @vivalarayna to follow and that you were hoping for other lyricists from a few you listed including me. Sure, I'll join in, if you're still looking., then I'll wait for vivalarayna's song to post b4 starting one. https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/6820

@wolfkier

Thanks so much Liz.
Your comments are always so encouraging. At this stage of the game with the WK100 project though, with 15 days till I really want to put them to sleep and move on, the absolute most helpful comment is

" 1) done! 2) vox too loud? 3) done 4) drums down a bit 5) vox lost 051-057 personal faves 1, 4,5. "

The lottery comment is:

"1) done 2)done 3)done 4)done 5)done. Faves: 1,2,3,4,5 "

So, if you do keep an ear on the 5ers through to 100, and I hope you do, and I hope you keep enjoying, that's the kind of comment, while clinical I guess, is the easiest given the bulk of it all, but is most appreciated and most helpful. All ears hear all things and if you catch one thing that makes me focus and fix, then your 15 minutes investment has been priceless to me.
I hope you had fun with your stemcorpse section. I'm very keen to hear both where it came from and where it went when it's released.
Wishing you a blessed sunny Summer weekend ahead, my friend.
Hugs.

@skyezor

Thank you for all your kind and supportive comments and great job on all the fine songs you’ve penned already!!

[avatar]

Thank you for your wonderful comment and of course I would love it if you took on "Her"

[avatar]

Thanks Liz!

[avatar]

I have the stem from @wolfkier ready for you for your turn in the Stem-Sharing Corpse but don't see an email address for you.
That's an impressively long list of songs I had to scroll through. 😀

[avatar]

Hey, Liz - Excited to get to co-write with you in both the morphs. I like what you did with the Lyrics...Fun to see how the previous two songs live inside it...Maybe in the next few weeks we can do another collab.

@roddy

Hello. I posted a demo for your lyrics 'Why won't you agree' Hope you like the music. https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/6378

[avatar]

Just posted "Sun & Moon" - I seem to be having problems with my little 8 track recorder. The in-built microphone used to be perfect, but it's picking up sibilant sounds too much for my liking at the moment. But this draft should give you an idea of the potential. I could hear this with a mass "folk" choir. And I wonder if it might work as a round too.

[avatar]

Hi Liz. I knew you'd "get" my "A Song of Me" immediately. Thanks for such a thoughtful input on it. I intend to record my version of the song I mentioned today,. if possible. I've got to take the car to a garage for a service. Now there's an idea for a song - the songwriter desperate to write (or record) a masterpiece and everyday life just keeps getting in the way. 😉

[avatar]

Ha. Thanks. The morph was way too much fun. I did not listen to the previous songs, and boy how they changed. But I could see where they changed. Looking forward to hearing the last part.

@andrea

I also want to thank you for your very kind and thoughtful comments on my collab with Kate, This is the last Time, and my lyrics When I Fall. I truly appreciate both of them.

[avatar]
@andrea

Thanks, Liz, for your comments on my morph post. I was hesitant to take the direction I did. I am so happy to hear you like it. I spent 4 days writing it and waffling if I should start over -lol. It's fun to see how the lyrics change from person to person!

@nadine

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed :)

[avatar]

Thanks for the comment on the jigs Liz. [Normally I'd try to return the listening compliment rather than this way but things are a mess] Much appreciated. I haven't got to ANY of my promised collabs yet.

[avatar]

Re: Stairway To Heaven Or Highway Straight To Hell. You are more than welcome Liz, twas a pleasure putting music to your lyric. Must do it again sometime :)

[avatar]

Hi, Liz. What is the best way to communicate with you outside of this platform? I did not see an email address in your bio.

[avatar]

It took me awhile to figure out the chorus and bridge to make them sound different. But I was out of breath when finished. I need to up my editing knowledge so I can make songs in 2 or 3 parts and paste them together. I am very glad you liked it. I enjoyed the process almost as much as the lyric (which I thought was beautifully written).Thanks.

[avatar]

Thanks for your encouraging/useful observations on my track.

[avatar]
@wolfkier

Means a lot coming from you, Liz. Thanks, my friend. You gave me plenty great images (and a couple memory jolts) to morph on! :)
Hugs.

[avatar]

Hi, Liz! You're next on Lyric Morph 1: https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/5329

[avatar]

Yay! Thanks, Liz. I just printed them out:) thanks for being chill about the timeline too! I read them and couldn’t wait to set them to music. Singing into my phone…it’s the production that takes me so long since I’m still learning. From a fellow introvert 🎶😀I thank you!

[avatar]

Hi Liz! Thanks for your comment on Schlaflied für kleine Häschen. 😊 Lullabies are among my favorite genres. Singing a child (or someone else) to sleep is such a universal human thing. I do hope I'll inspire one or two others to come up with their own lullabies - and be it only in private. 😄

[avatar]

Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my works this season. I do so enjoy reading them!

@beacon

So, should I take a shot at setting The Prince to music?

Hey Liz - I've got a demo for 'Out Of Control': phil.mcmilli.com/audio/fawmy/5090_2022/outOfControl.mp3
Let me know if you want any changes - otherwise if you can post the demo with the link (and share song with me), that'd be great - thanks.

Hey Liz - I listened to Someone Needs To Be There and I think it is perfection and I would not change a thing. Your lyrics are always so good!!

@andrea

Thanks so much for your lovely comments on The Storm and Niagara's Fall. I enjoyed reading your thoughts on each.

[avatar]

Oh, Kahlo! What a nice compliment on the latest version of But I Did. I am so happy with Kate's vision for this and her marvelous vocal. And I think Dominick's percussion and bass really brought it up another level. I agree with you about that last....But I did.... Hooboy! Kate nailed it. Thanks for commenting.

[avatar]

thanks for your comment on my one night stand song. we were all pretty bad in those days, and she was ready to give up the singles bar scene. we spent a month or so together after the event, going out to my mothers farm to set up the spring rituals. she burned her bed and we jumped through the fire and all that. i really liked her, but i got a call from my sister in the navy in tennessee. she was being sent into alkoholic rehab and asked me to move down and watch her dog for a month or so. when i got there, this girl wrote me that this would be the only letter she would write me so that was it. 20 years later, when i returned to town, she was working in a store near a good friend who had stayed in touch with her. and she had no wish to see me. so i conclude i was more of the problem than the solution. have you had a chance to listen to my attempt to musicate underneath the moon? when you do,. please let me know if you think its worth posting, if it needs more work, or if i should 86 it

I'm so glad you enjoyed my take on Wicked Wild World! It was a pleasure to work on such strong lyrics, thank you 😀

[avatar]

You're on! Might take a couple of days though (#ikeabondage, you see!)

[avatar]

@Kahlo, Glad you liked the "imagery and love" in You Take Me There. I have wanted t work with @wacha for some time, and I'm so glad she wanted to develop this. She tells me there is more to come, and I can't wait!

[avatar]

Thank you for your thoughtful and kind comments. I appreciate you so much.

@ohljazz

Thanks for your kind comments on my tunes. I'll get to work on "Where Do We Go"

And for "Campfire Melodies".

Liz, thank you much for reviewing "Goodbye Old Paint". It is a tear-jerker.

Thanks for your kind words on "Look Sharp"!

@beacon

Thanks for your comments on The Glance. I can tell that you also lived through similar times.

And I swear I will be setting at least one set of your awesome lyrics to music before October!

Hi Liz. My version's up! Apologies, I couldn't see a link above to email you, otherwise would have run it past you first. I hope it's alright ❤️

Thanks for commenting on Blind Date!

Holy cow, Liz, look at your output! (And me, a poorly practised viola and an Ikea kitchen. Ho hum) Wish I could spend mroe time. SHould happen later (I didn't think I could get started on 5090 till August)

[avatar]

Thanks and that sounds great what your dad did!

Do you also know the muffin man? Who lives on Drury Lane.

Thanks for your comment on "Tommo" - As you've been there yourself, we need add nothing more. Well.... as Lennon said:
"It's so hard!
It's really hard
Sometimes I feel I'm going down"

[avatar]

Excellent! Might take me awhile but I'll gladly record music for Wicked Wild World 😀

[avatar]

So glad you liked my "Literary Salvation". I am late to the party here and have had a lot of family commitments, but I will get around to listening to (or reading) more stuff, especially yours, which, as you know, I have a soft spot for.

[avatar]

Creepy is an appropriate word to use for the song. I discovered a lot of knobs and dials on the desktop version of Garageband that are not on the tablet version. Another learning curve for me, but it is easier to share the finished song from the desktop computer than a tablet, so Onward to the next song. Glad you enjoyed it.

[avatar]

Thank you Liz for the wonderfull Words on My song and for the support for my son💖🏳️‍🌈

[avatar]

Well, so happy for Grace. I may or may not watch the trailer, but likely not.

Thanks for your comments on minijimi and summer! Enjoyed doing them. Interesting note about Summer being dark - in retrospect it does have a sad ending in a way . Hope you’re having a good 5090

[avatar]

Hi Liz.
Email to paul(at)dragondreams(dot)org(dot)uk please.
Excited to hear what you've thrown me! 😀

[avatar]

Wow, look at all those songs stacking up! Thanks for taking time out to comment on Baby, What About Me. I loved @jibbity34's treatment of it, and your phrase, "forlorn hook!"

[avatar]

Thanks for checking out my song. It's kinda half written, but there you go. :P

Just add me as a collab to the rhapsody piece

Hi Liz! Sorry I'm calling back only now. This page is so busy! 🤪 Yes, we've been matched for a random collaboration. As a first-timer, I am super happy to have an experienced FAWMer at my side. 😄 Thanks for the kind words on the collab with Stephen on Personals. Wow, those lyrics... 🥹 Some ideas: I have three unfinished songs in advanced state that wait mostly for lyrics to be completed; could I share them with you to see whether they inspire some words? Furthermore, I have ideas for several pieces more, inspired by 50/90, that I'll be sketching out in the next days. We have a virtual orchestra and virtual rock/pop band at our disposal, besides lots of sampled solo instruments and synthesizers, so we can go in nearly any kind of direction, from minimalistic to monumental. Genres that I haven't experimented with so far and in that I probably sound unintentionally funny 🙈😅 include Metal and Rap/Hip-Hop. But nothing's off-limits and I'm well ready to try something new or crazy. 😄 My e-mail is: hr.florian.hoffmann@gmail.com. --Flo

[avatar]

Yes indeed, Studio V is up and running. Only problem is V herself is having trouble getting steam. BUT at the very least there will be at least one LAVA song, even if it's a 10x10. Cause you know we can't let a FAWM or 50/90 slip by without a crazy attempt at writing unscrupulous words for each other to sing. :P

[avatar]

Hi there. Thank you for the listen to My Giraffe. I really like this song too. I have been thinking about downsizing my stuff, and I have been sorting out what to keep and what to toss. Sure are a lot of memories.

[avatar]

Hi Liz. 😊
Thank you for the kind words.
And you've been busy! Time for me to listen.

It's lovely to hear from you again Liz, have a great 50/90 and I'll be keeping a lookout for lyrics to musicate (if that is such a word) :)

[avatar]
@colgoo

What the heck, let’s collab on “Drag King”….I know I’ll be going in a different direction than what you envisioned while writing it, but we’ve worked together enough….you know I’ll do my best to deliver your lyrics well.

Hi, and great to see you for another 50/90! I'm looking forward to reading more of your lyrics. I see you already have one up! (Although as soon as I'm done typing this message, I'm off to work on my own first song; I'll be back to check out others' first entries later today, I hope!)
