Day 12 Music Prompt: Out Of My League by Stephen Speaks.


This is really nice Davy. I feel the same way sometimes, thinking of what I could do but won’t ever do.

That’s brilliant. It also sums up every disco/club I went to between 1981 and 1988!

Revisited and loved it even more! These are lines from a song that needs to be born!

Ha! I have mainly concentrated on words (lyrics). If you change up the order of things and write the “Lyrics” first then the right music from the right person will find them? Hey, another new path to explore!! I just love the lyrics in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s works. Tons of other great songs that are a perfect blend of words and music – a marriage!!

Check out writing lyrics!! I think you would be really great at it!!!

Something I like to do from time to time is use the cadence from a hit song and write new lyrics to the cadence.

Yes, exactly. I remember Paul Simon relating how he came to write Cecilia. He said that he was tapping a back beat on the piano bench that eventually ended up as the song “Cecilia”. I guess it can be a successful method!

I have always felt that knowing how the song came into being enriches the song for me. I like it when I hear how poets, songwriters and authors talk about the back story of their creations. But that’s just me.

Had a great chance to recommend your work to a friend and gave her a link to this one. I warned her that she should not click on it unless she had a lot of time to spend reading as your work is extremely “Addictive”! LOL! In having to page back multiple times to find this I was just wondering if there is an easier way to search through what you have written and posted. Some info I would like to have for myself also. Hope your day is great!

    Thank you Charles, that is deeply appreciated. If you scroll down on the home page of the blog there is a search box under archives. If you know the name of the poem and type it in there, it should find the poem. You could also use the tag cloud if you have an idea of the genre. Hope this helps. Have a great week Charles 🙂
