    Brainstorm Or Draft

    I have a few musicians that have written songs I adore this past year or so. Here is the draft of what I'm going to write about. Well not draft, but brainstorm. Next time, I'll be, braver, I'll be, my own, saviour, Standin', On my own to feet.   I won't, let you...

    Bob Dylan Or Bruce Springsteen

    Firstly because I love them both, but also because they always seem to be able to blend the good with the bad and make it sound like something you don't want to miss, something amazing and exciting and heartbreaking and aching all at once. I'd like to my song to sound like...

    Oh, to Live On Sugar Mountain, Or Touch Me

    My troublesome teen years were spent with Rock and Folk Music.  Neil Young, through his time in various bands, then returning to a solo career and back again. He is a poet of emotion, If I could meet him and he would "get" me, I'd love him to sing me. If Neil is...

    Easy Choice

    I guess it changes with time and situation, but at the moment the perfect choice would be A Fine Frenzy aka Alison Sudol. She has written some of the most brilliant lyrics I've heard in a long time and the melodies that she combines with them are just perfect. I haven't bought...

    Too Easy

    The question.... "If you could pick any musician(s) to write a song about you (your life, something you did, anything at all, really) who would you pick? Why? What sort of song(s) would you like? And, is there a song out there now that you wish was written about you?"...

    Older Songwriters

    Since I like romantic songs more than not, my favorite songwriter, who was very prolific in her day, is Carole King.  She also sang some of her songs fairly well, but many artists made their living off her songs which she penned for them. I would love to have write a love...

    i tell you one thing, not a rapper. most of the stuff they write is usually offensive (in my opinion). it seems the songs these days are all about sex and stuff like that, so i would want someone like Rick Astley (he's dead tho) to write me a song

    My Soul On Paper

    Being the indecisive woman that I am, I couldn't just choose one, so here are my top choices for singer/songwriters who I would love to write a song about/for me.  Maynard James Keenan (performed by Tool) - Dark, sexy, beautiful, hard, heavy drums with insane time...

    Listen to Them and Tell Me What U Think...

    Damien Rice or Amy Lee from Evanescence. I absolutely love Amy Lee, her voice is angelic and her music is beautiful and builds on all the aspects of music that i love and i can relate to almost all of her songs, and her lyrics/music has a certain fantasy/fictional element that i...

    A Song About Me ...

    I think I'd most like Pink to write a song about me. Well, I'd be the most honored if Voltaire did ('cause I <3 him X oo) but I think Pink's style would convey my life the best.

    Warren Zevon

    I admire courage and Warren had it. He knew he was dying and he made music and wrote songs till the end. Many musicians came to jam with Warren on his last album "The Wind". They did not even want credits on the album cover,they just wanted to make music with this...

    Take a Wild Guess!

    Of course, Bono Vox (U2)! His songs are so deep and his voice is like an angel! If he wrote a song for me, I would melt into a puddle and disappear down the drain! You would never see me again... unless your toilet suddenly got backed up! I would return from the sewers to...

    Conor Oberst

    This man is so unbelievable. He manages to write songs about my feelings. I mean: Things that I've thought but never known how to say or write... he just sings them. So in fact he's written lotsa songs about me without knowing it but I've always wanted to be Laura Laurent... :)

    He Who I Would Like to Write About Me Is...

    ...rather difficult to decide. I think I'd love to have Tchaikovski or Shostakovich composing one for me, though. But that's not really the same. I'd love to see a Marilyn Manson lyrical-version of me too! xD That would have been something! *laughs* But maybe a wrock-band...

    No, not really. Although the man did have some serious story-telling skills. He probably still does. I shouldn't talk about him like he's dead. I think I'd pick John Williamson - Australian folk singer. He's written quite a few songs about 'normal', everyday people that he's...

    I Heart Ben

    I would want Ben Folds to write it, and probably perform it too.. Because he taps into the raw comedy, the poignant nostalgia, the personal revelation, and the societal rejections that I feel so closely.
