    Still Under Your Spell

    © 2014 Andrew LeFevre, Music and Lyrics

    Guitarist is playing, our favourite tune
    Ten years this summer, we heard it that June
    We chat back and forth, then order our meal
    Your smile still finds my Achilles heel
    It’s not hard to tell - I’m still under your spell

    Reminisce through mem’ries both funny and sad
    Partners in night clubs, we never should’ve had
    School plays ‘n Proms, got home late at night
    They said he’s no good, still you held me tight
    It’s not hard to tell - I’m still under your spell

    The band starts playing, we take to the floor
    Circling like planets, there’s heaven to explore
    Then later the motel, show “do-not-disturb”
    Sleep in ‘til late, it’s what you deserve
    It’s not hard to tell - I’m still under your spell

    Skin diving ballet, moving as one
    Our duvet’s a sea, midnight waves our fun
    And when the storm’s passed, we lie in-the-glow
    Of feelings so tender we both have known
    It’s not hard to tell - I’m still under your spell

    No it's not hard to tell - I'm still under your spell

    I'll have to think about the whole "get a pseudonym" thing….


    I guess a pseudonym is very useful if 'you' write a real bummer - simply adopt another to avoid the stigma of previous efforts 'following' you about :lol:

    So, what's the story on "zmulls" - was there an "amulls", "bmulls"... ;)

    On the serious side - a sexy pseudonym (Gordon Sumner => "Sting", ) or name upgrade (Reginald Dwight => Elton John, Kathryn Hudson => Katy Perry) can't do any harm to the start of an aspiring career - damn, I went wrong as soon as I joined the musesmuse - not nearly enough pseudonym care!

    Hmmmmm, here's a thought - wonder if there's anyone on the musesmuse operating under several pseudonyms. Could wreak havoc in the contest scoring...

    Rescue Me

    © 2014 Andrew LeFevre

    [V1 – FEMALE SINGER]
    Attractive lady seeks fun loving guy
    For a long term friendship and love that won’t lie
    If you've got that something, I'm looking for
    Send me a picture, give me a call
    Rescue me

    [V2 – MALE SINGER]
    Sensitive shy male seeks, vivacious girl
    Who'll dance this life with me, make my senses whirl
    If you've got that something, I'm looking for
    Send me a picture, give me a call
    Rescue me

    [CH – MALE & FEMALE SINGERS]
    Knight in shining armour rescues damsel in distress
    It's an age old story but I must confess
    In matters of the heart we're all blind to see
    The person we're looking for, is just like you and me
    Rescue me

    [V3 – FEMALE SINGER]
    Under the picture of my horoscope sign
    I read the news that the planets were aligned
    It would just take courage, to make the first move
    So I'll send a picture - wont you give me a call
    Rescue me

    [Bridge ]
    MALE: Found your picture in the post
    FEMALE: Found your message on the 'phone
    MALE: So maybe tonight
    MALE & FEMALE: We don't have to be alone

    [CH – MALE & FEMALE SINGERS]
    Knight in shining armour rescues damsel in distress
    It's an age old story but I must confess
    In matters of the heart we're all blind to see
    The person we're looking for, is just like you and me
    Rescue me
    Just rescue me
    Just rescue me

    All right then - we have a tie for first.

    Neal


    I know we can't do it this time around but doesn't this make a good case for allowing decimals in future contest scoring?
    I'd have thought it would make a tie less likely in the future - but maybe it's been tried and hasn't worked in the past for some reason?

    For my own lyric scoring, I have four 1-10 scoring categories: Structure, Flow, Originality and 'Read-again?'. I then average these scores and usually end up with decimals. At the moment, if my lyric scores near 6.5, I reread the lyric to decide if I should round it up or down - which is kind of a sledge hammer adjustment.

    Just my 10cents...

    Doh! – beaten by a couple of odd socks in a tumble dryer! :wacko:

    Very well done Len, a highly creative lyric which shone out on the first read.

    As well as Len’s lyric I particularly liked:

    Summerrose’s: “Redemption” – really liked it’s refreshing, unusual structure and especially the duet conversation that takes place and strong pull-it-all-together chorus – outstanding!

    Don Snow’s: “Forever” – a touching lyric that has potential to be a really stunning duet – kudos!

    All good efforts, enjoyed reading them all.

    Neal - thanks for setting the interesting duet challenge and thanks to Mikey2, neuroron, MikeB, and Scubed for scoring :)

    Hi Gwyneth - at long last, my comments is up and running - many thanks!
    Do be careful and choose a UK location above any local floodplain - we have had one heck of a lot a rain recently! Cheers
