Life needs music - Need a song for personal lyrics - FEMALE vocals
My friends shared some intense experiences with each other over a critical period of a few years - and lyrics for 19 songs grew out of these times. I guess you could call these our own personal "Rumours" by Fleetwood Mac. MusikPitch seems like a great way to make some real songs with these lyrics. Unfortunately, as a personal project, I can't offer a large amount as the contest prize, and I won't be able to post a contest for all 19 of the lyrics - we'll probably just post two or three.
The music will be shared among the friends involved, and posted for their enjoyment at http://maslowspub.com - the site is currently open to the public, but might not remain so. No money will be charged for listening.
The target audience of friends are mostly Americans, ages range from 20s-40s, musically diverse tastes from classic rock to punk to dance pop.
Looking for song incorporating the lyrics posted at link below. Singer must be female . . . though I suppose if you're a man and your falsetto sounds female or at least ambiguous, that could work - heck it might even be better.
[update: for a while this link wasn't working properly, but it should work now. Please just message me if there's a problem.]
Feel free to rearrange or tweak lyrics as necessary to fit the music. I'm not a professional lyricist, so the phrasing may be awkward in many places.
Any style considered - as mentioned above, Rumours is a thematic inspiration, but it's not necessary to be in the style of Fleetwood Mac. Though that is an awesome album, isn't it? Bowie's Ziggy Stardust is just as inspirational, as a concept album capturing a cycle of life. I suppose synth pop or electronica might be good for this one. But seriously, you can try anything.
Lyrical interpretation is also up to you. But a bit of guidance here - these lyrics might seem to indicate a purely devotional love song. But in my mind, the singer is possibly not serious about what she's saying. Worse, she may think she understands love in concept, but she really has no actual experience of being in love, and she's not sure she ever will or even can. She's asking for love, but does she want the person she's asking, or does she only want the experience it will bring?
