A really good read is "Tunesmith" by the great Jimmy Webb.

I've read this several times. The chapter where he lets us follow his thoughts working out
the lyrics to "Wild Child" show how much care and rewriting go into a well crafted lyric.

I have great admiration for lyrics that paint pictures rather than state the obvious.

Bernie Taupin"s... "you lived your life like a candle in the wind".
Billy Joel"s...."as the smile ran away from his face".

The list is endless but well writing lyrics stay with you forever.

Keep writing and never give up on your dreams!

You've got to have a laugh!

Even Stevens, m8. Even Stevens, eh?








Just the sort of puerile, flaccid riposte one would expect from an internet fraud. Absolutely scathing!


“...Singer Songwriter and Music Producer ...”



Right.

We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music.
