Joanne,

Love Song Sings sounds great. You've captured the lullaby feel really well. It's a very restful sound that you've created. Kudos to you and Liz!

Regards,
Noel

I had a little bit of "fawmus interuptus" when I went to Egypt with 12 wonderful ladies from university and from school. What an amazing trip and definitely one that I can recommend. For those who are Facebook friends there are some quick videos I made on my page.

So the long and the short of it is that I don't think I am going to get to 14. (I also had someone contact me about producing a few songs for her...so now I guess I am a producer, starting on Monday!!)

Anyway, here are two that I wrote today. The lyrics were provided by the wonderful and prolific Liz Petty.

AH HA MOMENT

Lyrics:
V1
when you realize
cola with chocolate ice cream
tastes better than
root beer floats

when you realize
rainbows with summer down pours
are better than
either alone

C1
it's a little ah-ha moment
one that takes us by surprise
just a little ah-ha moment
ah-ha that brings delight

V2
when you realize
others' needs joys successes
are better for
all to own

when you realize
hard work that brings real change
is better than
what is known

C2
it's a little ah-ha moment
one that takes us by surprise
just a little ah-ha moment
ah-ha that brings delight

V3
when you realize
women open hearts to give
are better for
love to grow

when you realize
passion with lifetime lovers
is better than
leaving home

C3
it's a little ah-ha moment
one that takes us by surprise
just a little ah-ha moment
ah-ha that brings delight

it's a special ah-ha moment
one that takes us by its weight
a very special ah-ha moment
ah-ha that brings us strength

it's a little ah-ha moment
one that takes us by surprise
just a little ah-ha moment
ah-ha that brings delight

Here is the second one I wrote today. Lyrics by Liz Petty.

I WOULD HAVE

V1
remember the time
we waterskied in the rain?
had I known it was the last time
I would have gone around again
I would have jumped more wakes
I would have

V2
remember the time
we swam in the Adriatic Sea?
had I known it was the last time
I would have jumped from thirty feet high
and would have swam until moon rose
I would have

C
I would have loved you
more fully and fiercely
I would have taken
more vulnerable risks
I would have let you in closer
I would have opened my soul deeper
as we kissed

V3
remember the time
we made love beneath August stars?
had I known it was the last time
I would have let down my guard
and kissed you slowly
I would have

V4
remember the time
we parted but promised to return?
had I known it was the last time
I never would have agreed to those terms
I would have asked you to stay
I would have

C
I would have loved you
more fully and fiercely
I would have taken
more vulnerable risks
I would have let you in closer
I would have opened my soul deeper
as we kissed

Feedback from someone on FAWM said "I Would Have" would be much better with just piano and strings so I just quickly substituted the tracks and produced this version. Completely different! Isnt BIAB amazing?

Hi Joanne, Nice to hear of your wanderings. What a great adventure. Love this song "I Would Have" has a really great message. My favorite is your first recording with all the other instruments. Of course it's my personal preference of a more folky country sound. Nice vocals also.

Time to get a few more in...This one is for all you drummers out there.... Wonderful lyrics written by John (I dont know his surname yet) who goes by the name "oneslowtyper" on FAWM.

This one was alot of fun putting together.

NOBODY KNOWS THE DRUMMER

Lyrics:
(V1)
Learns to play when he was young - tin cans and some lids
wants to be a drummer... just like his Daddy did.
Was told about the old days... good times and the bad
Said nothing beats a drummer, but at times you're driven MAD...

So why be a drummer....
You'll end up giving more than you’ll gain
You have the heartbeat of a drummer
More concerned with tempo than with fame


(V2)
You want to be a drummer... your visions are so grand
You sit behind the others, even though it is your band
And if you hit the big time, money and some fame
The fans know every member... but not the drummers name…

(Chorus)
So why be a drummer....
You'll end up giving more than you’ll gain
You have the heartbeat of a drummer
More concerned with tempo than with fame

(Bridge)
The singer's in the spotlight – belting out some rhyme
All the band depends on you, to keep them all in time
then the set is over ladies are enthralled
Thats when the singer gets first pick - you just get last call........

Solo

(Chorus)
So why be a drummer....
You'll end up giving more than you’ll gain
You have the heartbeat of a drummer
More concerned with tempo than with fame

Does anyone know... the drummer's name…………..

Joanne,

I Would Have is a fine song - in both versions ( I`d give the nod to the solo piano version show casing the lyrics and capturing the wistful feeling a liitle more).Your cowrites with Liz Petty are outstanding.

Joanne,

Some really nice songs here. I particularly like I Would Have. I think I prefer the piano version. More intimate, and fits the lyrics better to me. I always look forward to hearing your songs. Great job of "cranking them out"!

Steve

Hi Noel, Robert, Steven, Donna and Dani

Thanks so much for listening. Only two more days to go (4 more songs still though...)

Here is song number 10 and I think it is my favourite. These lyrics were also provided by John (Oneslowtyper) and were incredibly easy to sing. Sometimes simple is better. Only two realtracks in this one.

ONE PIECE

Lyrics:
You took a piece...
And passed it around
You left a fragment...
On the ground

He's only pieces...
He is not whole
You took a piece...
And left him cold

What is a man...
If he's not whole
He's just a footnote...
In somebodys tome
He's not the whole man...
He was before...
He lost a piece...
When you closed the door

Solo

You took a part...
Of what he could be
A little fragment...
And now he bleeds

He's just a half-note...
In somebody's song
When you're half a man...
Where do you belong

What is a man...
If he's not whole
He's just a footnote...
In someone's tome
He's not the whole man...
He was before...
He lost a piece...
When you closed the door
