At Sea

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

I surprised myself with this one…

With my bubblegum europop compositions getting nowhere, I was inspired by various other FAWM entries from mucho talented people (particularly A new game by Becca Palm) to go for something a bit deeper. This romantic ballroom-y theme came from nowhere, but romantic lyrics aren’t my scene – so I made them romantic-plus-evil instead. As one commenter has put it, you’ve got to imagine “women in long dresses ballroom dancing to it with looks of mild horror on their faces as they realized what the song was about”.

The Homecoming

Friday, February 2nd, 2007

My first FAWM entry, and also the first proper song with actual lyrics I’ve ever written, ever ever ever. Maybe writing lyrics isn’t so bad after all…

So now you get to hear me sing. Lucky you.
