Thread Name: Songwriting Under Pressure
Subject: RE: Songwriting Under Pressure
Thank you so much, guys! I find it very odd to share a song without the melody. Lyrics and tunes are so intertwined.

Angels of the Wild is a song I'm very happy with. This coming Saturday night JeffM and I are opening for an Eileen McGann concert. One of the songs we'll do is Angels of the Wild. I love to sing this song for other people, and I look forward to singing it on the weekend. I'm tempted to share the words with you on the 'cat, but to me this song isn't a WHOLE song without the words, AND the tune, AND the dulcimer, AND the guitar. So I find it difficult to share the words, separate from the rest. It's the whole package that contains the strength of the song, in my opinion. Does that make any sense? Do you feel the same about the songs you write?
