Help Me Write a Song!

So I’m working on a new song. I’ve got the music all written and I’ve recorded a chunk of it. The problem I have is that I have no lyrics. Instead of writing some myself, I figured I’d open it up for suggestions. I’m crowd sourcing my lyrics!

Have a listen to this short sample of the music to get a sense of the style and attitude and, if you want, write me some lyrics! Write as much as you want…a line, a verse, a whole song. I’ll take all the chunks I like best and record those as the vocals. Leave your contribution in the comments area below.

Oh, and don’t feel the need to continue on someone else’s contribution unless you want to. If your lyric ideas don’t match what’s been written by the person before you don’t let that stop you. Write what YOU want to write.

“Great, but what do I get out off it?” is what you’re probably wondering. Well, not much. I’m not exactly a rich and famous music dude who can lavish you with royalties, but if I use any of your lyrics I’ll give you credit here on this blog and everywhere else I might put this song up. And to avoid any weird legal issues I’ll never sell the song. It will always be available and shared for free to the universe at large, and whenever possible, your contribution will be noted.

Please contribute and share!

  1. We cursed the summer with the brandywine,
    You learned to throw your shoes.

    Kiss me sweet like a dandelion,
    And play away these handlebar blues.

    Maybe that’ll get you started, friend! Nice sounds. Feel free to check out a few of my tunes if you like. Cheers!

  2. Man those are great lines. They’re in for sure! I’ll check your stuff ASAP. Thanks!

  3. Glad you think so. I’d love to hear the finished product.

  4. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    • I’ve looked everywhere I can think on this end of things but can’t see how to turn off notifications for other people besides me. I just approved this comment so you should get a notification of that…when you do see if you have the option. Sorry 😦
