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'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

[avatar]

Thank you for your comments on my two lyrics". Chinatown Tattoo is becoming one of my favourites. Cheers

[avatar]

Thank you for listening!

[avatar]

Thank you for listening!

[avatar]

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.

[avatar]

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

[avatar]

And for "Campfire Melodies".

[avatar]

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

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind words on "Look Sharp"!

[avatar]

Yay! Glad you liked it :)

[avatar]
@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!

[avatar]

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 ❤️

[avatar]

Thanks liz for your comment on cry a while and then it's done

[avatar]

Thanks! Marthie did a wonderful job!

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on Blind Date!

[avatar]

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!

[avatar]

Hi, @Kahlo123.Thank you for your comments on Memories Are Everywhere. Very nice of you.

Excellent, thanks Liz!

@cola

So happy to hear you like it! Thanks again for letting me write the music, I had a lot of fun! 😊

[avatar]

thank you, Liz

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

[avatar]

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.

Hi Liz! Thank you for listening to Stuck (Half an Apology) and for your wonderful comment!

[avatar]

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]

Thank you for your comment on “Discard” ❤️

[avatar]

Thank you for your comment on "jump" and for the compliment on my vocals 😄
Still working on them ^^

Hi Liz! Thanks for those beautiful comments, very much appreciated. It was worth coming to your page just to be reminded of how many songs you've already posted 🤯 well done!

[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

[avatar]
@lowhum

Just add me as a collab to the rhapsody piece

[avatar]

I just made myself a draft for the music to develop tomorrow -- will play with your repetition ideas when I revisit!

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.

@hbusse

Hey Liz, thanks so much for the listen and kind comment on My Perfect Friend! I hope you and yours are well and enjoying the lovely WI summer ❤️

[avatar]

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.

[avatar]
@jamkar

Happy 50/90 Liz! A collab with you would be really cool!

[avatar]

Thanks for dropping by, Liz! Wishing you a fruitful summer, and as much 50/90 as you can manage. :)

Hi Liz, so wonderful to be finding my friends, hope you are able to visit often!

[avatar]

Indeed! Wishing you a happy summer songhunting season my friend!

So good to see you here, and really want to set some of your words to music again. And I hope you'll write for the Harmony Singers Challenge again (https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/forums/47)

[avatar]

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!)

[avatar]

You are incredible! I'm so glad to see you here. Between all the busyness, I hope we're once again able to work on some music together. Take care!
