In fairness, you did call the thread "Songs" I wish I had written. Since you only included one, ...
yep, easily my favorite tune by Billy
I thought I had written it, but then some lanky little girl came out with my "It's Friday, It's Friday...on the u tube thing, Then way back I wrote a similar song to dueling banjo's on my flutophone (don't know how to play banjo)
He did write some great songs, but I now refuse to support him over his treatment of other musicians. Watch "Hired Guns" and see what a D*ck he is.
Layla, for sure. If you're a guitar player, it has to be in your top ten.
There's a lot of them. Paul Anka, Buddy Rich, Ike Turner, Terd Nugget.
I can still enjoy their art without liking them personally.
Nope. Not "Songs You Wish You Had Written".
I included 3 in the thread.
I regret starting the thread in the first place. LoL
I wish you'd written this song too... I'd probably like it
All jokes aside, as much as I don't consider myself a BJ fan, I do like this song. I actually liked his River of Dreams album.
A fan of that album since I was a kid, my twin brother bought it or something
Ok so we are supposed to post songs we wish fezz had written?
I don't know if I wish you wrote this Fezz, but maybe you could have
Wait, so I'm supposed to tell you which songs I wish you had written?
That's easy: "Baby Shark." That way we could tease you for having written "Baby Shark."
The Girl With Emphysema!
Tall and tan and skin so wrinkly
The girl with emphysema goes coughin'
And when she hacks each one, we all go - ew
The idea was to discuss the songs. I guess I wasn't clear enough. Why the songs I chose worked...that type of thing. The form...the changes...the melody. To discuss great songwriting.
At least there are two more spaces filled. The thread worked for that.
I think the choice of "she's Always a Woman" is a great example of a very well written and very pleasing song in many ways. My own choice of song I wish I'd written would be "Josie" by Becker and Fagen. I love the feel of it, but then I can say that about most of the songs they wrote.
if i could just have one,
it would be this.....
for lyrics number one .....
for melody and chords number two.....
for arrangement and composition number three.....
and i like this version, although not an Elvis follower...
I think he does a good job here......
call me old fashioned ......
She may be the face I can't forget
The trace of pleasure or regret
May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
Maybe the chill that autumn brings
Maybe a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day
She may be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a Heaven or a Hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell
She, who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one's allowed to see them when they cry
She may be the love that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows in the past
That I remember 'till the day I die
She maybe the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I'll care for through the rough in many years
Me, I'll take her laughter her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
And where she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is
That is a true killer song, the whole package. Elvis Costello once talked about trying to avoid "emotional fascism" in his songs, working hard to keep the songs honest. I don't think there is a more honest love song than "She."
