THE FREEZER
on: July 18, 2017, 01:25:35
Hi everybody,

Lately we've seen posts in the lyrics section (and occasionally in other sections) meant to dump ingredients 'out of your system' and let others find out if it maybe can serve as inspirational input for them.
So let's introduce the FREEZER again (it existed before) as a sticky thread in the 'Songwriter Ingredients' section (thanks @MrBouzouki and @Mark Luto for thinking along lately).
After all, they should be 'stored' in a place where others start searching. And if I was searching for ingredients, I'd certainly start in the Songwriter Ingredients section!
So here it is!!

Feel free to post lyrics, fragments of lyrics, links to unfinished songs/stuff! Every kitchen member is free to use the stuff below (so if you post something that's considered a 'gift' to the kitchen members). Just reply that you took something out of the freezer to work with.
Guests, please register first before you use the material below and THEN leave a reply (only members can reply). 

Good luck everyone, let's clean up our systems!!!
Cheers,
:mart:

Feeling in a bit of a fatalistic mood for some reason whilst food shopping of all things. Anyway a few lines that might be on interest to people to use, expand on.

I went to see my father, he barely knew me
A forgotten hero of a war of long ago

A old couple walk together hand in hand
Heads bowed, I watch them shuffle off into eternity

A grey haired man, all alone in the store,
One of the winners on the roulette wheel called life
"Love and Life is all about connections"

... an odd line of two ;-)

echoes of the past still haunt your memory.
no matter what you say to ease your mind

But don't forget the people that you lied to,
for one day they might do the same to you.

what a great idea! I love the sharing of lyrics.
here is something I wrote, maybe this could be good for some electronic music??   ::)

When I walk through the dark
I realize love is hard to find
When I see the beauty
I still got hope. Let your heart decide.

When I walk through the dark
I realize there is love to find
When I see the beauty
I never give up. Let your heart decide.

Let your heart decide.

I am not afraid. So come closer.
i am not afraid. So come closer.

Let your heart decide.

Great idea for a forum section. ;)
 
I love discovering or dreaming up random expressions or lines that can be used later.

As with every other language, English has certain words that are considered to be particularly appealing to the ear (and the senses). Hundreds and hundreds of them, but below are just a  few. 

No doubt they're familiar to the Kitchen's non-native English speakers, but maybe  one or two you've never used. I hope they'll inspire you to include them in a song.  :)

Serendipity − chance occurrence that is beneficial

Sonorous – imposingly deep, full sound

Iridescent − producing a display of rainbow-like colours

Luminous − giving off a bright, shining light

Phoenix – ancient mythological bird that sets itself on fire, then rises from the ashes

Lullaby − music or song that puts you to sleep

Rendezvous – a meeting or appointment at an agreed time

Ancient – belonging to a distant past

Reverie – the state of being pleasantly lost in one’s thoughts

Elixir – life-affirming, magical potion

Evanescent – vanishing quickly; lasting a very short time

Mellifluous – sweet sounding

Sumptuous – lush, luxurious

Willow – particular tree that grows in temperate climates

I'm in for a songwriting challenge using these 'apealing' words @DonMar , great idea @Dutchbeat ! Donna, do you have even more of these special words? Say we have a 100 of them, and challengers need to use 10 of that list is their entry.. Wouldn't that be great fun AND produce some really appealing songs?

Let us know everybody and thanks for your post Donna!

Cheers!

 @Mar T, I've added more words. Maybe we should stop at 60 (I've included below  the words from the previous post); 100 might be overwhelming.  :D

For the challenge, I think any form of the word would be OK: e.g. verb, noun,  adjective, etc.
For instance: 'allure'/'She lured me into the cellar'.
'dazzling': 'He dazzled the audience with his brilliance'; 'She was all razzle-dazzle' (using the idiom 'razzle-dazzle' = showy appearance or performance intended to attract attention or cause confusion).
'charming': 'She had a boatload of charm'.
'dalliance': 'I dallied with a village lass'.
Enzovoort. Would open up more possibilities.

***Notable in the words are all the 'm', 'n', 'l', and 'r' sounds. In English, these four consonants are considered to be the most appealing to the ear. And of course lots of lovely vowel sounds. ;)

I hope the Kitchen crew will enjoy the challenge. I can imagine some really nice & fun results.  :)

Aaaah coool @DonMar , thank you so much!! I'll start up a new challenge next week in the 'Challenges' section of the forum called 'The magic words challenge' where everybody MUST use 5 words from your magic list. I'm very curious, that'll very likely result in a lot appealing songs!
Great work!!
