Update: Just learned (in the nick of time) to make placeholders! I posted two songs a while back without demos, became zongs. Made me sad & then determined not to post any more until I could functionally put in demos, because it was kind of demoralizing. Kept writing, came up with things I am pretty happy with - did not post, as my demo recording skills got no better. Found I could create a placeholder for them, so now I am a Woman On a Mission to make the recordings happen...& sending my thanks out to the people who provided guidance, collaboration, & inspiration to do a lot of thoroughly enjoyable writing during 50/90 - SO MUCH APPRECIATE what you brought to the table & shared!! Next time around I will be way better prepared on the recording end - & my project now is to turn these placeholders into something I can better put out there in audible form!

Hey there, some of your songs don't work. Can you please make them private or title with "placeholder" until you filled them with content? Thanks :)

5090 is kind of different from FAWM as far as the pace of commenting goes. You'll get Zongs here, sadly. I'll take a look at some of your stuff yet!

Hi there!🙂
Thank you for your comments, but I’m not really looking to collaborate on anything I’ve posted thus far.

[avatar]

Glad you liked Brief Encounter.. I am in Liverpool at the moment. I will return the compliment when I get back to Catalunya.

[avatar]

Done! I converted it to an MP3 and put it in Dropbox so it will play directly.

[avatar]

Thanks!!! I like the melody you brought to it! And you deliver the sentiment I was trying to convey well! Shall I add it to the site and add you as a collaborator or do you want to?

[avatar]

Thanks, that would be awesome!

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind words on "Seven of Swords"! It's nice when a fellow tarot reader understands the meaning behind the reference. I'm also a fan of Great Big Sea and will check out some of these others bands you've listed.

[avatar]

Best of luck with the tech challenges for uploading your recordings. I'm looking forward to hearing them!

[avatar]

Thank you for the kind comment on Little Bird. Glad it enhanced the morning coffee!

[avatar]

Hey again. Thanks for the comment on the prequel group. Please let me know when that song(s) inspired by Becky's 'Cut My Hair' stream and my prequel song 'Says Hey Mary' get posted 😀

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on my song, "Maybe He Was a Martian!" I'm really happy to hear it made your day. Knowing that, made mine!

[avatar]

Hi there, thanks for leaving a comment on Nothing Special, just thought I'd let you know there is now a demo up, hope you enjoy it!

[avatar]

funny. I just read an article about the Bacon Brothers today. I of course know of Kevin Bacon, who doesn't? we're all only 7 steps away from him - but didn't know about his composing brother, or that they did music. I was educated today. I will have to check them out

[avatar]

I love those lyrics you wrote. Do you have a melody in mind? If not, I'd like to start working with them right away

Hi and welcome to 5090. Already got me smiling at the random songwriter quip!
