Wow @BayBlues   thanks for going to the "back of the rack" for this one. G. can really wail-away on that geetar  ::e-guitar3::

This got me wondering if anybody would be interested in a separate thread posting the best of our forgotten oldies? 

We're always posting the new   and never look back. I know @Leonard Scaper @Bill   have written more songs than they can count I'm sure @LePlongeur too. Maybe even @Mar T.   could even dig one up?

V

That’s a great thought @Vince   I’m in for that… starting here? Or maybe you had in mind a new thread? Or Zone? 🤷‍♂️

Well @1roomstudio   and others, I think a separate thread and keep this one for it's purpose.

Also I'm talken'  back of the rack, bargain basement price moldy oldies.  Nothing new. Maybe you would  like to start the thread

@Mo @Vince - cool! I like the line "So peach / On beach" a lot, minimal, and hitting the spot! This song would ask for a separate posting in Songs for Review for sure.

The mood really came together @Mo  and @Vince  it would fit right into a David Lynch movie... or fun evening by the fire... or at the Kitchen Table again.

Thank you for sharing  :praise: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Look at how inspiring these curves are. All kinds of curves that is.
Any curves apparently, since I know for a fact that curves, I wouldn’t look twice at, are very attractive to other people.
M/v/non binary/prefer not to specify/and what have you.

It even turned up in an entry /song of mine:

Chorus LGBTQIAP Am I short sighted? I’m left out

Sorry, I’m a hetero. I generously make way for everyone to be/feel the way they are.
Or to are the way they feel.
But do I need to claim an extra colour on the flag.
I don’t think so! The more frontiers, the more differences.
I think it ‘s high time for a general loving human flag.

Let’s face it, I don’t ask my children what the do in bed. Let alone other people’s children.
As Chris/soultanz used to say:
Love knows no boundaries!!! We made ‘Katarina’  (with 1000’s of listens). And And I still love her for it.

Food for thought or thought for food??? Might just as well be right.
Kind regards, Gus

Yes ... I work slow .... anyway @LePlongeur  this is from your prompt a long time ago with your chocolate sprinkled bread. I have a great tune and progression for this one but I still might need a bridge.

----------

Aspirin in my coffee, chocolate sprinkles on my bread:
All the things you said last night still messing with my head.
I try to understand you think you have that magic touch.
You never gave me anything but I never asked for much.

I always try to keep up but it's hard to move my feet
When I'm just a normal person living on a normal street.
.....
Yes, I'm just a normal person living on a normal street.

Wonder what. Wonder why. My dreams don't reach the sky.
Wonder how... but I'll still be a normal person on normal street.
Reach for the sky.
Reach for the sky.
Don't let your dreams die.

I'll head out to the garden. Think I'll get there with the sun.
Seems we barely started... and now already done?
Each wall a pastel rainbow where the corners meet
But, I'm just a normal person living on a normal street.
.....
Yes, I'm just a normal person living on a normal street.

Wonder what. Wonder why. My dreams don't reach the sky.
Wonder how... but I'll still be a normal person on normal street.
Reach for the sky.
Reach for the sky.
Don't let your dreams die.

Wonder why.
Wonder why.
Reach for the sky.
Reach for the sky.
Don't let your dreams die.

Fancy people passing with designer bags and such.
I'll always be happy if I never ask for much.
I'm Bill and I'm just a normal guy.

Hoi hoi Bill,
I have been wondering before, if your ‘normal’ isn’t actually meaning ‘sane’ or two feet on the ground.

I think it is a very nice thought to aim at trying to live as simple as possible. Try to cherish what you need and get rid of what has no more strings to your heart, strings to your family or strings to your purse.
And you not only you but it goes for everyone.

In that sense ‘just a normal guy’ means more (I think) than what you say.

Autobiographical or do I read more in it than you intended?
A lovely piece of work either way.
Plus The chocolate sprinkles, which have made a deep impression on your normalness (apple mafia suggest ‘normal mess’. Maybe it’s a good idea to write lyrics based on these insane suggestions.

Kind regards, Gus

@Bill nice one… and normal enough 😎

My favorite lines…

Fancy people passing with designer bags and such.
I'll always be happy if I never ask for much.

The world would be a better place if that sentiment were more normal  :shinyteeth:

@LePlongeur thank you for the surprise!  ::thumb::

Well @Bill   glad that this didn't get lost "in committee "  does this mean Melissa will sing it?

 I found a box of those Chocolate Sprinkles by the "Master of Bread Toppings" De Ruijter in the International section  of the grocery store. I must say that as an American I find it kind of odd putting chocolate on bread, but my wife's sisters kids do it all the time in Germany. They think my old peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are totally weird, go figure.

well @1roomstudio @Vince  ... I might actually be one of those fancy people in a way .... I don't use peanut butter .... I use almond butter   :shinyteeth:

I like the idea @LePlongeur  that I am sane. I'll tell that to my wife and see how it goes.  ;)

I am working on the new prompts too. Life kind of smacked me up side the head recently. My schedule has been pretty insane.
