As the rest have said, a very inspiring question indeed, and seeing as I most recently fallen in love for the first time, I would have to say my song has a Sinatra feel to it, very "This Can't be Love Because I Feel so Well" kind of thing.
( Wow, that's a hell of a run on sentence)

But yes, my thoughts are always with him, so my song is mournful when he's not around, with a whinning sax, and then when I'm with him, it a beautiful meldoy accompanied by a big swing band.
Before him, my song was very melancholy and monotone.

Mine would be something about the joy of choices and freedom, appreciation of the present moment, people to go home to at the end of the day and how humans, no matter what happens, can always carry on.

Reading over what I just wrote it sounds real cheezy, so I guess I'm one for living my song, not pinning it to paper...

You've missed the point, rao. It's not a song that someone has already written. It's your own personal song, the one that defines who you are. That's not to say your song can't be like the songs you listed. But your own song is internal, and not something that has a copyright.

Ya Rao.. what SMB said... give it some thought,
what are you all about, whats your purpose.

Your song should illusrtrate your life disposition, and be totally origional. Give it a tone and stuff. Be totally creative Big Grin

Quite old thread (depending of course on the way you look at it). Never the less interesting... and one which I´ve been giving a lot o thought. My song´s probably something like:

Useless, useless, pointless, mindless.... I wish I was dead....Happy, happy happy, as can be.....I wish I was dead, but glad I´m not.... (and be called "wild mood swings on the inside, though on the surface nothing´s ever changing").


"Happy, happy happy all the time
Schock treatment I´m doing fine"

hmmmm...i think you're playing my song.
but since we can't have the same one...i'd have to make a few alterations. Wink

There aren't words - I live my song.

I guess a few of the more translatable motifs are:

I love my life.
I can't believe I'm having such a great time.

I know exactly what my song is. It's in Ancient Egyptian and I made the tune myself. Can't reproduce it here; I don't read music, but it's sounds somewhat like Gregorian chant. The lyrics are:

A ka dua
Tuf ur biu
bi a'a chefu
Dudu nur af an neteru.

I won't try to translate it here, but if anyone recognizes it let me know.

Well I knew what the authr was talking about when he wrote that we all have our own song because I have been singing mine for a long time. It's never realy had lyrics and seems to be continually changing. Well anyway here goes "Oooooooooeeeeeeeooooooooo... ooooo ooooo eeeeee ooooouuuuuoooooo aaaa aaaaa aaaa ooooaaaaeeeooooooaaaaahhh... " lol that was kinda liberating, although you can't see the notes, nor do I know what they would be. I'd have to sing it in yur pressence in order that you would get it let alone appreciate it, and I would be in the shower during this so the only people who have apprecited it have been either on the toilet or in the shower with me... Oh there I go again saying too much and embarassing myself.

Hello!! I'm new in this forum. I hope I do well and not make too many mistakes with my english... ^_^.

My song... I think my song moves and changes with my mood, with the weather, with the colours of my clothes every day... It's obvious, isn't it. When you are sad your song have to sound melancholic and when your happy... You catch the idea.

But the most of time it sounds like classic guitars and percussion.

Don't know the words yet but I've got the tune figured out and I know the title.

"Out of Time, Out of Place (A Wanderer's Song)"

I don't know the title and I don't know the words--well I do, but I don't think they're any language that really exists. But I know the melody and it sounds a lot like something by Enya and I sang it when I was a little girl... I hum it sometimes when I work or while I wait in line, and if I were to make it real, it would probably require a full symphony to play.

My song is bluesy, and it's about connecting to my fellow humans. Hm mmm mmm what can you teach me? Mm mmm mmm what can I teach you? I'm reachable--are you?
Something like that.

It reminds me of the film http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_from_Earthsea_%28film%29 Tales from Earthsea (ゲド戦記, Gedo Senki where Therru and Arren has to find out each other's true name.

Similar concept, both the true name & song is unknown to others, one must earn/learn it through a journey so s/he learns about him/her-self; except the 'True Name' is more concrete.

It's also sth that's so private that you must NOT share it with others; it's the 'medulla' of one's soul.

Cool first post!!!

Was bored in class today, came up with this: "Snitches get stitches, I'm Big Daddy Longo, B*tches"

Not sure why it'd be my song, as I have nothing to do with snitches, and less to do with giving them stitches, and I'm not remotely "Big Daddy"-ish but it gives the allusion of pimpin'-ness, which is always a plus Big Grin

Mine would be entitled, "I like my own world better than yours"

The sound would range from MSI to Beethoven.

My song, I think would go a little something like this:

Matthew
is a lord of evil
evil
evil
oh evil
evil
he's mean.

Dada de de deee.


In case you're wondering, a friend made that up for me in Grade 10. What can I say? It was a catchy tune. ;P
