I am an Irish writer who lives in Scotland. I write lyrics and work with musicians from around the world to get them turned into songs. You can see some of my lyrics, and listen to the published songs, on my lyric writing website www.LyricSlinger.com

Would love to collaborate with other FAWMers on any of the lyrics that I post. And I'm always open to tweaks and changes to my lyrics to make them fit with the music

@andrea

Hi Simon, Congrats on 50! You are a machine. Wish I had that in me. You might make 100! Awesome :)

[avatar]
@aeye

That would be a cool idea! ( sorry for the slow response). If the vocals were recorded I could get them layered over it and then adjust the track as needed. Shouldn't be too hard to do.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks a lot for your comment on "Quarterlife Blues". I'm happy you enjoyed! We are not done yet but I look forward to finish this song next year 😀

[avatar]

Angsty and antsy!

[avatar]

Hi, Simon, Thank you so much for kudos on Criminy, Jake. I was delighted when Tuesday agreed to work with me on it. So glad you liked it. Thanks!

[avatar]
@brisk

Thanks for bigging up Bring The Pain! I have messed around with it in my enthusiasm, not sure if I've made it better or worse, but hopefully better.

[avatar]

Let me know if you'd like the stems as well

[avatar]

Hey! Yes you sure can have an MP3 of Got a Drouth - here you go!

@tjeff

Simon, I'm gonna write music to "Real Life" instead if that's ok with you, let me know thanks.

[avatar]
@tjeff

Hi, can you resend? I didn't get the email, thx.

[avatar]
@tjeff

Looking forward to the collab Simon! Any topic is fine, thx.

[avatar]

Cant be that, i have not got any duplicates

[avatar]

Thanks for your nice comments on my Nix song! I have to catch up on yours!

[avatar]

Thanks for the comment on the jigs. [Normally I'd try to return the listening compliment rather than this way but things are a mess] Much appreciated

[avatar]

Here you go Simon... https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/6043 👍

[avatar]

So pleased you like the Y&B track Simon! I'll post it tomorrow probably, if that's okay?

[avatar]

Hi Simon...I've left a msg and a link via your website...cheers...Gwyn

[avatar]

Hi Simon...just to let you know that Yin and Bang is nearly done and I'll send you a link when it's up on Soundcloud to see what you think before posting...cheers!

[avatar]

The emigration of Irish to Canada is very interesting period of history. Wars, famines, and lots pf politics. Glad your great grannie returened home.

@crisp1

Thanks for your comments on Marco Polo, my collab with Jacob.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thank you! Yes I also miss my fellow metalheads 😢 There are more on February....

[avatar]
@geoff61

Thanks Simon, I have been feeling like I can't get any inspiration lately but somehow I still manage to write, good or bad :-)

[avatar]

Hey! I just finished up our #randomcollaborations piece - it was a blast - I hope I find an opportunity to collab with you again sometime.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thank you! I never listened to Faith No More but I know that they are a influence of the bands I listen to.

[avatar]
@oswlek

Thanks for the kind comment on "Predator", Simon. It really means a lot. I'll be back to dig through your stuff in a bit. 🙂

Btw, @jeff9 is being far too kind. The "song" was little more than a quirky riff and a couple chords before his lyric made everything start to bloom.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Hi, Simon. Thanks so much for the flattering comments on Predator and Prey. @oswlek is an amazing artist to work with.

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'Be Alive'!

[avatar]

thank you for listening and for your comments.

[avatar]

Your lyrics are perfect! I should have something for you later this week.

[avatar]

Hey! We got put together for #randomcollaborations ! Let me know if there's anything you need from me - I'll take a swing at whatever you write.

[avatar]
@katmtl

Hello!
Thank you so much for listening to my song!❤️❤️❤️

[avatar]
@geoff61

i thought it would tickle your interest.

[avatar]
@mikeb

Oh yes, Black Heart Lane - I remember now, Scotto sang that one!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thank you for the kind comments about "Cranky Old Men". Glad you enjoyed it.

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'A Life of Unfulfilled Dreams'!

[avatar]

Thank you for allowing me to put music to your wonderful lyric "Love And Rage" and I'll make sure I have a look at some others of yours to put music to as well. It's songs like yours that keep me coming back to FAWM and 50/90. BTW, nice website :)

[avatar]
@nadine

You're welcome, just keep me posted! It's such a bummer that I don't have electric guitars. Plugins are not able to create the tons of raw noise you need for these lyrics!

[avatar]

Got the lyrics, I'll start working as soon as I can. Working overtime the next couple weeks so please bear with me.
The story is pretty solid in this song. I enjoyed it.

[avatar]

Duly posted...thanks Simon! 👍

[avatar]

Hi Simon,
I've left a msg and a link on your website...
Cheers!

[avatar]

Thank you...I'll be in touch again soon...👍
