Learning to Fly by Pink Floyd is a good uplifting song.

Re: JULY FSOTM – UPLIFTING AND OR COMEDY

I wrote this song last year which is somewhat comedic, based on a true imaginary story of a spider jumping on me:

I'm still missing a third verse, so suggestions are welcomed!

Cheers

Hey good to see you Jets, haven't seen you in a while on here.   How about covering that song you mentioned? or writing one for this month? smile

neophytte, that was great, really enjoyed it.  Liked the lyrics, the way you sang in it, including the little speaking bit haha and of course guitar wise, it suited the song very much.  Look forward to hearing the next verse.  Maybe you could write more about your reaction in the 3rd verse or make up something that happened for a 3rd verse smile

Thanks - it took a bit of extra effort to set up, mix down, and do the video editing; but it does make it look a bit better. I might try and mix one of the other songs I did the same way ..

Cheers

That was great (but I don't think Ford will be contacting you anytime to advertise their cars! smile )
