Let's write a song!!

posted by JedExodus on - last edited - Viewed by 277 users

So a good few folks around here play instruments so i'd thought it'd be fun if we all brought something to the table and tried to put a song together.

Putting it all together will be a bit of a nightmare but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. The very least we'll get from this is that we'll get to bounce a few ideas off each other and gave a bit of craic :) For now we don't have to worry about recording quality and tempo cos we're esentially just brainstorming

Anyway, here's my rough proposal for a theme, I dunno if anyone would wanna work with anything in this vein but it's nice to hear feedback!

Likewise post your ideas, every style and instrument is welcome and hopefully between us all we can get something really nice going on :)

    How about a song titled 'Everyone fancies Puzzlebox'?



    Hehe! When people play it its should say "She's already taken!" then a Telltale Rendition of "Never Gonna Give You Up!" plays.

  • Way too lazy to actually pay attention to what's being said or to check the sound sampl (i'll do that after i get some sleep, tho), but if i can find some way to record myself decently i might provide some crappy bass or guitar lines ;)

    And what's that about dashing being gone :eek: ?
    First time i come back here after a while and i'm reading stuff about him everywhere :eek:

  • This is awesome! Also, if you need a back up singer or something at any point...well you know where to find me! And I know where to find singers!

  • Include lyrics about space, please.

    I'm the best at space.

    Sounds great but it really needs to be done to the tune of "Want you gone"

    For the sake of the children!

    This is the part where Rather Dashing leaves



    We'll have to put that in the Hymdal for the Church of Rather Dashing. Oh, and that's a thing. Check out the religion thread.

    Once again, you cannot really hear me (and I still cannot sing) so here are the lyrics for you to sing along:

    It might be how she is
    Never unkind
    It might be her wit in
    “Whatever’s on your mind”

    It might be the way she
    always helps out
    But one thing is certain
    Without a doubt

    That whatever it is

    Everyone fancies puzzlebox
    From her snorkel down to her socks
    Yeah everyone fancies puzzlebox
    She’d even look good with LeChucken pox

    It might be her charm,
    her grace, her style
    It might be her jokes
    that make it worthwhile

    It might be how she
    Never does wrong
    It might be the way she’ll
    Delete this song

    But one thing I know

    Is everyone fancies puzzlebox
    From her snorkel down to her socks
    Everyone fancies puzzlebox
    She’d even look good with LeChucken pox
    Look, she posted, I bet it rocks
    Her DVD edition is deluxe
    She smells nicer than a wild ox
    Yeah Everyone fancies puzzlebox

    Edit: Chords are Cmaj7, A7, Dmin7, G7, Cmaj7, A7, Dmin7, Gaug
    C, Caug, C6, C7, F, Faug, F6, F7, Bb, Ab7, G7
    C6, Amin7, Dmin7, G7
    The final chord is C7 with added 13 and 11 :)

  • How about:
    Banang: The Musical!

    3 whole acts of Banang!

    (At least a Banang song!)


    ......

    Banang!!

    I'll have to listen tomorrow, my speakers aren't plugged in and I could not be arsed at the moment. I had an idea for it but I was at work all day today so it never got done, it was like a tribute to 'I've been everywhere' by Johnny Cash, haphazardly rhyming off the names of forum members who all fancy P-Box. No doubt yours is better.

    Be prepared for me to dumb down your lovely chords with my bag of cheap guitar tricks :p

  • Pop a Poppler in your mouth
    When you come to Fishy Joe's.
    What they're made of is a mystery;
    Where they come from no one knows.
    You can pick 'em, you can lick 'em,
    You can chew 'em, you can stick 'em;
    If you promise not to sue us you can shove one up your nose.
