Re: And Another Big "Thank You!"

Hi Vic I know I've not been around to support you as much as you supported me during my tenure but I was more than happy to see you'd taken over the reins of this group and kept it going. My thanks to you for maintaining the enthusiasm of this group are an echo of everyone else's. Cheers mate you're...

Re: SSG6 Week 7 - Untitled

Hi DR The whole thing gets across the huge storm really well, there's plenty of good description and imagery in the first verse. The use of Thor's hammer in partciular. I can see what you mean about the other verses though. Although the story is told there's just something lacking. Don't know if the...

Re: SSG6 Wk 8 - Santa’s Not Coming This Year

Hi Montezuma

That's one way to blow the Santa myth wide open.

Really well written and well thought out piece with a great and funny twist at the end.

Good stuff

SSG Year 6 - Week 1 - Bob

Hi Everyone Twiddling round on my guitar over the last few days gave me a nice (in my opinion) blues guitar part. I remembered David's week 1 assignment was a blues song so thought I'd exercise some very rusty writing muscles. Hopefully I'll get it recorded and posted over the week-end - beware :win...

How Pop Songs Work

Hi Everyone Whilst flipping through the channels on my TV last night I came across a programme entitled How Pop Songs Work. I watched it through and it was an interesting programme. Anyway as it was on the BBC it can be viewed again using their iPlayer. The link below should take you straight to it....

Re: SSG5 - Week51 - katreich,dhodge,pbee - mp3

Hi Paul

I like the way you've written it to be from the point of view of the downtrodden realising how good life can be. Good twist

Listened to the MP3 and just thought Talking Heads. Good work.

Good stuff

Re: Year 5 Week 51 Annies Couch (Chris C/ Raystack)

Hi John

This is typical Celt high standards at play. This is a touching story told elegantly and without mawkish sentiment. I like both suggested endings although Chris's would be easier to fit in to the rhythm I had going. Definitely need an MP3 of this one.

Great stuff

Re: WK51 - Stingy Brim (CitizenNoir / Chris C)

Hi Ray

I like this it makes a great interpretation of the chorus and fits that quadrophenia reference well (I saw it again only a month or so ago).

Some forced rhymes but overall I think it's really good.

Hi Rob

This definitely meets your stated intent and is a great job with some tricky lyrics here and there.

Good stuff

Re: Y5week51 reservoir road (the celt + blueline)

Hi Straycat I like the idea here - a lifetime in the blink of an eye. You've managed to distill that idea and put it across quite well although it definitely needs another verse to finish off the story. I have to agree with Ola though carcasses don't tremble the image doesn't make sense in that resp...

Hi Neill I kind of get where you're trying to go with this and I think it's only two lines short of getting you there: but they were two travelers on the same road traveling together until it got old they met for the last time where dead ends meet they turned there heads and strapped into their seat...

SUNDAY SONGWRITER'S GROUP - Week 51

Hi Everyone I'm going away Saturday lunchtime until Tuesday lunchtime so thought I'd post this a day or so early. Following on from last week's choruses for this week I'd like you to write the verses for that chorus. Choose one or two of the posted choruses (or more if you feel you can) and try to c...
