Egroeg,

You seem to be good at creative uses of words -- I wonder if you could help me.  I'm trying to find a good rhyme for the word "chopsticks" in a song I'm writing.  Ideally, I'd like the rhyme to at least sound similar to the "o" in "chop" for the first syllable, and have a nice "-ix" sound for the second syllable.

 

Thanks!

Funny Paper, I know you didn't ask me; but might I suggest "drop kicks", "hot licks" or "cop flicks"?

All good rhymes, however, the rhythm of the line at the juncture in my song would make any one of those sound awkward, since the two syllables will be sung very fast together. 

I'm not good at writing music, but if you know as much or more than I do -- imagine a fast tempo song in 4/8, where there is a four-syllable lyric at one point, with all four syllables as fast as four 8th notes in a row, beginning at 3 and ending at 2 of the following measure: "3-4-1-2" (with the last syllable -- say "kicks" -- held for several beats).

I guess I'd like a 4-syllable word where the last two syllables can rhyme with "chopsticks" and where the 2nd syllable flows smoothly into the 3rd.  Or it could be a one-syllable word followed by a 3-syllable word.

I'll try to think of something, and this info helps, but it might be easier if you could tell me what the lyric is.

Sad news, that a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

 

I´ve just heard that The Bag O´Nails is going to re-open this year as a ''high-end private members club''.

http://www.bag-o-nails.com/

Wonder if it will last...

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

In the event that someone has been looking for or waiting for the Twickenham Purple Chick A/B Road discs to surface then you can find them being uploaded at Everything... Beatles. Currently 2nd and 3rd January are up and the person running the blog uploads in order so you shouldnt have to wait months to get them all.  

This site has nothing to do with me or this site, im just letting folks know as it has been asked once or twice here.
