I’m writing a 60s-inspired song. Strangely, it’s not even Beatles-style – but it’s synonymous with the sorts they loved and often covered. It’s sort-of rock’n’roll, sort-of country and sort-of skiffle. It’s got quite a few complex and fast lines in it too which are really fun to sing.

looking forward to hearing it

We were just trying to write songs about prostitutes and lesbians

Here are the songs I’m making:

  • Elizabeth
  • Cold Heart
  • Untitled country/rock’n’roll song
  • Revolver
  • Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (No, It’s Not About LSD, We Swear)

Halfway done, more or less. Just need to add a couple more verses and decide some other elements, then I can record.

Finished Concrete and Cobblestone! It’s kind of a blues-y song, with some rock’n’roll inspirations.

@MrMoonlight I remember you saying you finished Revolver , but it didn’t save. Did you post the lyrics?

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

Unfortunately not, no. I made them up as I went along for that one, I’m ashamed to admit.

If they were good ad-libbed then you should be proud not ashamed. That sucks. Good luck with it when you get back to it.

I think I have a good musical beginning for Rubber Soul , but I can’t think of lyrics.

Sorry If I haven’t uploaded ”If I’m Gone”, I was on my last weeks of school with lots of homeworks and final exams and I had some sort of a breakdown because I seemingly failed in one that I might need to do another exam to see if I can pass this course and not repeat a semester. I’ll try to write down the song via a music notation software and record my vocals over it, so you can judge if you like the song. I’ll try to not delay as long as I did before this sort-of announcement.

Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to...Strawberry Fields.

Good luck with the school stuff! I’m sure we don’t mind waiting if you still have an exam.

Only one left, but it is not as hard as the others were, so I can dedicate a little time to write down the song on the software. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I’m gonna try and write a music hall song, like Honey Pie or When I’m Sixty Four. I love the instrumentations on those.

Me too! It’s absolutely brilliant to use music hall on a simple song like When I’m Sixty Four!

Ugh, I’ve got writer’s block. All the lyrics that come out just seem a bit… off. It really, really triggers my anxiety, and it’s been annoying me all night.

I’ve got a song idea, entitled The Truth, with a similar sort of message to John’s Working Class Hero .

It’s just an idea at the moment. It’s going to be kind of orchestral-inspired, with some folk mixed in there.

I can’t wait to make it. Only problem is, I’m losing my free time rapidly, and I barely have any chance to record anything now since I’m so loud (which I need to be).
