July 3, 2022 - I'm so excited to be here. I'm hoping to do lots of collaborating and skirmishing. I'd love to do some corpses and morphs and whatever other wild, wonderful writables pop up.

If you ever want a set of lyrics to write to feel free to hit me up. I can start from a phrase (words or music) or from a block of text or can just surprise you with a few options. And of course feel free to put music to anything I post. The more the merrier.

I did my first FAWM in February 2022 and was blown away by how great it was.

Can't hear the music for I Wrestled with the Beast. Might want to check that link.

What a great surprise. Thank you so much!

Re: night sky - that would be wonderful

[avatar]

Fab seeing you stop by my page and comment on "The Words Not Said," Nancy! Good lyrical eye and ability you have to interpret them, re: the song's character.

[avatar]

Ach, danke fürs anhören meiner Hausschnecke! Ich dachte schon, es wird der erste Song ohne Kommentar - was mich jetzt nicht wirklich verwundert hätte. Ist schon etwas schräg das Teil 😎
Lieben Dank für Anhören und Kommentieren 🤗

@miga

thanks for the comment on "under our wheels"! So, you know the Susquehanna too? (That was a witty wordplay between the bridge and the musical bridge!) I love those native names, so sweet off the tongue, and so musical. I'm kinda new to the whole FAWM scene, but also benefitting greatly from it! So glad you're having a good time at 5090!

I sent my 10 sec. of Kaiju to you Nancy, at the above email.

[avatar]

Thank you for the lyrics...

[avatar]

Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments on my tunes!

[avatar]

Thank you for listening!

[avatar]

Hi Nancy, I just emailed you. I clicked on your mail item and hopefully my message went into your mail box. If you don't see it please check your spam folder. Thank you.

Hi Nancy, thank you for your kind comment. Yes please have a go at lyrics. Thank you so much.

[avatar]

@nadine

Thank you! This song is far from finished. I hope we can open it up for collaborating with better singers. It was very hard for me and I don't have the gear and wont be able to buy in the next 1-2 years. At least I was feeling very down when I recorded it, so it helped.

[avatar]
@nadine

Hey Nancy! I just want to say that taking a break for some days or weeks. I have been in a lousy mood the last week. I don't feel like writing songs. Maybe it's better to work off my pile and find co musicians, before I start more stuff...

[avatar]

Hey, no problem.
Thanks for the great lyric.

[avatar]

@nancycunning, can I take a stab at: Not at Etta's Anymore.
I really like your Lyric and I have some Music that I think will fit.
Is it OK if I Nix a couple verses? I will keep the Flow of it.
It's a little lengthy otherwise.

[avatar]

Hey, thanks so much for listening to my songs. Really glad you enjoyed them. Looks like you're making amazing progress with your 50/90! Hope you have a great one :)

[avatar]

Thank you so much for your comments on "The One-Upper". You actually gave ME some things to think about with your analysis of the behavior and of my song, so thank you for that. We all have a wanting for validation and belonging, of course, and some (including me) have likely developed various coping mechanisms or methods of getting desired attention. Looking at the song from your perspective as a listener actually makes me think that's the way it should be: that the singer went from critic to empathetic observer to accountable to themself through the reflection of this song. Admittedly, I did not have that in my head when I wrote or sang it, but I think I will from now on. Thank you again!

@jeff9

Thanks much, Nancy, for the kind words about "Cranky Old Men"!

[avatar]

:)

[avatar]

Nancy, I liked your comment on But I Did about the contrast between the "head-first verses and the heart-broke choruses." That's exactly what I had in mind in the lyrics and Kate delivered in spades! Thanks for listening.
Thanks, too, for your great comments on Cranky Old Men. Glad you thought it was fun.

[avatar]

Hi Nancy, Regarding your chorus: Works! 👍

Here is some grammatical nitpicking, in case you want it super smooth.

Without the context, I am not 100% sure of course. To me it sounds like it's about people fleeing and letting them into the country? If that's right then I would suggest the following small changes:

"Alle akzeptieren / Ohne Vorbehalt / Ohne Grenzen / Ohne Grenzschutz / Alle akzeptieren / Ohne Vorbehalt / Alle akzeptieren - und zwar jetzt".

- Use "alle" if it means mostly persons. "Alles" means mostly things and would sound impolite when addressing people.

- "Reservierung" means reserving something for later use, like a restaurant table. But I guess you rather mean "Vorbehalt" which means "prejudice" or "concern"? Or do you really mean "also accept them if they come unannounced"? Then I would choose something like "Voranmeldung" or "Anmeldung".

- "Grenzschutz" is the commonly used term for persons and organizations protecting borders. "Grenzenschutz" is grammatically correct, but not used and sounds unusual.

(If you'd like to discuss more, we can also e-mail. Or use the private messaging on FAWM's Slack if you'd like to.)

Would love to collab. But seems like you need to be quick with NC lyrics 😂 ! I'll keep a beady eye out and hopefully put my hat in the ring for some... thanks!

[avatar]

Hi Nancy, thank you so much for that feedback! Not sure i have it in me to re-record the vocals at this stage (there's like 5 layers, so it's quite involved 😂 ). But I LOVE your idea, and am definitely going to try messing about with progressing a line(s) in a chorus through a song. That's so cool. Cheers!

[avatar]

Hi Nancy, thank you very much for your kind comment and offer on Depression. I'm not sure you saw my piano track as I've composed music and I'm going to have a demo with the vocals on this lyric so I'm not looking for the music. Maybe we collaborate on something else. Thank you again.
Have a wonderful Summer.
Nadia

[avatar]

Thank you so much, Nancy!! @mctown and I are working on another song together soon. We'd appreciate you checking that one out as well. I am now going to catch up on your music :) Have a great day!

The previous Ikea conversions? No. 1 was speccy, as the old kitchen sink tried to amputate my ring finger and I spent an evening in pain walking up and down Pt Augusta hospital emergency with a dripping artery while an Aboriginal woman brough in with injuries was screaming without pause at the medicos, ambulance people and police "now ya going to rape me" which says a lot about the social situation. But I don't think I can build that in.

[avatar]

Thought you might like #ikeabondage but didn't like to push! I was in the throes of the lyrics when you sent that message. Everything is taking longer for me this 5090, now the cascade of other issues held in abeyance by #ikeabondage... Thank you for the comment too!

@miga

thanks for your comment on my song. It was 2 weeks ago, probably, but I do appreciate it!

[avatar]

Done...just needs your lyrics...👍

[avatar]

I'm so pleased that you like what I did...thank you so much! Sure, I can post it and you can add your words...as I said, great lyrics to work on... 👌

[avatar]

Hi again Nancy...here's an SC link to what I came up with...feel free to post if you wish...really enjoyed the collab...Gwyn

Hi Nancy...thanks! I'm working on it now and will send a link for a preview when it's done...

[avatar]

thanks for your feedback on my song 'midday sun' much appreciated! im having trouble keeping up with 50/90 over this longer period (its my first time!) but trying to keep writing and listening as much as possible

[avatar]

Danke fürs zuhören und kommentieren! Es war mein Ziel, es unheimlich und düster zu machen und es scheint mir gelungen zu sein 😊

@jorh

Thanks for your lovely comments on ‘better start believing’ I’m- it’s made my day to know it inspired you :)

[avatar]
@nadine

You're welcome! And thanks for your offer! Right now I have too much on my plate (started too many challenges at once), but I come back to you when my muse is running low on lyrics 😊 It's written down. You got talent!

[avatar]

Actually I think that coda would make a good bridge.

[avatar]

Hey Nancy, Glad you liked my take on "No, Not Today." Yes, please send me the coda for "Picking Poison Ivy." I'd love to see it.

[avatar]

Hiya I actually haven’t made music for the lyrics I’ve posted, I don’t know if I will turn them into music. I tend to make the Improvs separate to my writing listings. The long video of what’s on my profile is all the recordings I’ve done over three or more days. Because I do them fast I figured I’ll get to 50ish and call it done if I don’t get round to doing my 10 song quality album idea. Hoping to take my time over 5090 for that one. Thanks for stopping by. The time stamps is taking a while but I’ll get round to it ! Thanks for stopping by

[avatar]

Hi Nancy, thanks so much for your extended feedback to my skirmish piece “Unprepared”. You sum it up so well. It took me like half the time of the skirmish to work up the nerve to write about this at all. Makes me glad to hear that the lyrics succeed in conveying some of the confusion and hurt.

[avatar]

Hi Nancy. Thanks you so much listening and commenting on my little burrito song. That was very nice of you.

@cts

Just a few words, eh? A bar 8 of music and you can make it work, you say? Come on over to the Jelly Factory.

[avatar]

That's interresting about the sonnets, I'll have to try that! 😊

[avatar]

Hi Nancy, thank you for the v kind comment on Little Bird! I agree, there’s been some wonderful parenting songs so far this 50/90 - definitely an album in the making ❤️

[avatar]

Thank you Nancy for your lovely comment on Jack-in-the-box, I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

@atam94

Thank you for listening to "The Best Man" and sharing your thoughts. I appreciate the feedback a lot.

[avatar]

It's true, even bad movies with Nicolas Cage are still good because he's in it. Now I want to see Wings Of Desire. There should be a movie where Nicolas Cage plays Nick Cave and Nick Cave plays Nicolas Cage. They could cage fight, in a cage in a cave.

@crisp1

Great comment on No Stone Above My Grave -- "Like Lou Reed wandering the streets of Laredo." I love what Justin did with the music.

@nadine

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you enjoyed! I can take a song pretty far when some talented people to join 😉 But I'll never upload a draft like this into the public. Let's see what happens. Are you enjoing 50/90?

Hey Nancy! It's so cool that you're trying out some of the writing tools I use! I hope you love them as much as I do. I look forward to seeing what you write!
