14 Aug 2022 Update: I seem to be working on lyrics this year. Writing stronger imagery (and suffering songs!. Lol! Don't ask- I thought I would be over it but now every brief I look at they force me to remember my scars and write about it.)

mmm between Eskom loadshedding and losing my mind slightly in Winter I really want to collaborate a lot and write some awesome songs. Good Luck and see you on the other side!
My Goal this year with 50/90 is to write more impressive chorus'/hooks. I have been whispering songs for so long with my children studying somewhere in the house with school and Covid Lock down it's gonna be very very weird indeed....

Jean is studying B.COm International Business Studies(3rd year and he just turned 21)
Nell is studying medicine - just like her dad!(1st year and just turned 19)

having a six year old daughter gives me no option but to turn the pages back to childhood.

Hi Marthie! Added a link to the resources for Schlaflied für kleine Häschen to the song post, https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/4327 . My wife is a huge fan of the Dutch language, and we'll be staying in the Netherlands for the next 2 weeks for vacation. Not really exactly the same, of course, but really looking forward to an Afrikaans version of this! 😊

CBG=Cigar Box Guitar Alas not Cannabis, of which i have no experience whatsoever (other than professional botanist). Amazingly in my generation of students, neither Deborah nor I ever even tried it. Me, because I couldn't afford it and besides, I was already addicted to nicotine and KNEW I couldn't control that habit, so what were the chances of controlling a new habit that I couldn't afford at all, at all??

[avatar]

It sounds wonderful to me! Did you also send it to Nadia?
Also, I just wrote this children's song based on a 6 year old's comments. https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/3960

[avatar]

Hi Marthie, thanks for the kind words on NCC-5090! 😊 So good to hear the wait was somehow worth it. 😄

[avatar]

Thanks Marthie

[avatar]

Haha! It is pretty funny! :)

[avatar]

They only say the same thing over and over? Or am I missing something?

[avatar]

Ok cool. Working hospice today so it may be a bit

[avatar]

Thank you Marthie, awesome. Have a wonderful weekend.

[avatar]

Okay, great!

[avatar]

:))

[avatar]

Oh sorry. No it's not rock. Nadia did some lovely piano. Do you want her to send it?

[avatar]

No, I wasn't the one who did "Catch The Moon" with you :(

@jeff9

Thank you, Marthie, for the kind words about I Hate Love.

[avatar]

Hi Marthie, thank you for reaching out and the offer to collaborate, I would love to do that as I've been an admirer of your work from afar for a while now. My collaborations tend to be me concentrating on writing melodies and song arrangements to already written (or half written) lyrics rather than the other way around so I suppose the question might be "do you have lyrics that we can both put music to?" I have been toying with the idea of just writing sets of lyrics to see if I can do it and if that's the case I'd be more than happy to send them your way to see what you can do with them. BTW... Thank you so much for your comments on "Back To Me" :)

[avatar]

Hi Marthie. I've written a lyric called Fly High and Nadia put some lovely music to it. Would you be able to sing it at some point?

[avatar]

Glad you liked the country version of I Hate Love. Your comment brought me to your page. I see that I have some fun listening ahead of me! Thanks!

[avatar]

Cool! I will definitely keep you in mind! That would be fabulous!

[avatar]
@nadine

Thank you :)

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment on "Jaclyn" - did you have a certain track in mind to topline?

[avatar]

Thank you for your kind comment on Jack-in-the -box! Glad you enjoyed it!

[avatar]

Likewise, thank you for your kind comment, Marthie.

[avatar]

I always listen to hear your voice Marthie :-)

[avatar]

Hey. Wondered if you'd like if you have time to do my So Many Things I wrote today?

[avatar]
@aneil

Hi friend would you consider collaborating on my carnival song?

[avatar]
@nadine

The YouTube channel is linked in my profile.

[avatar]

I messaged you

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for listening! Haha, no way! I'm just a composer / arranger who knows how to deal with a DAW. Instrumental playing and singing is not my deal. And I don't like listening to fake guitars and heavily autotuned voices. My songs go nuts with the right performers. And I love going nuts with tons of good recordings and big arrangements. Check YT to hear the difference...

[avatar]

Great Marthie! Maybe we can at some point. I'm going to be traveling soon to see my new Grandson!

[avatar]

Or, if you know someone to do a duet with https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1150. I also know of a couple ghost stories I could write about.

[avatar]

If you have time and want to, I'd love you to do my children's song.

Hope to see some songs here Marthie
