Re: Poems are not Songs

A poem is but a muse, and music is but a poem with soul, harmony & melody. Hmmm.

Re: Poems are not Songs

I think poems can be songs if they are added beautiful music.

Ah Yes but music has to be added first until then they are poems and so must remain in the poem forum... smile

Re: Poems are not Songs

all the above arguments are good, i agree with each as i read them. so the fact must be that the poem section has (for the most part) been mis-titled! it should read "the song without melody (yet) section" seems a bit long though?
the poem section was begun because people (like me) would write a few verses hoping to make a song, or sometimes just as a poem, hoping that someone might come along and write a beautiful melody line for it, and then maybe form a mutually benificial partnership al la elton john/bernie taupin.

all i can say is, if you post a song sans chords, expect them to be moved to poems until you have chords for it. if you'd like someone to put a melody to your work...ask, simples. when chords have been added, the poem/song will then be moved back to songwriting.

IT HATH EVER BEEN THUS. AND EVER SHALL REMAIN SO UNTIL THE STARS FALL AND THE SUNS GOLDEN LIGHT DIMINISHES INTO PARODIES OF MARAUDING ANGELS.
