Three of the 2016 WildScreW CD songs date from 2011 and before but truthfully, back in 2011, I was cutting my teeth with song lyric writing and none of the many other efforts were to find themselves selected for ALPHAs. Several of the rhymes were sent to the Great American Song Contest for appraisal and the results can be found later in this book.

Looking at the rhymes I wrote in 2012 I am quite surprised at the number which were married to WildScreW musical melodies, effectively turning the poems into songs. “Free Fall”, “Beast With Two Backs”, “Stung!”, “Cougar!” and “On My Own” were all developed from original Thomas Wild guitar melodies and were professionally recorded on the studio CD which was released at the start of 2017.

Poems Of A Musical Flavour: Volume 6
Series: Poems Of A Musical Flavour. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 24,460. Language: English. Published: September 1, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Music » Lyrics, Nonfiction » Literary criticism » Poetry
This book is the last in the series and covers years 1994 to 1996 and 2002. So much happened I didn’t have enough time to write, but I certainly had the ideas. In 2002 I wrote 1 song. That’s all I wrote. And I’m surprised I wrote that. It was the last song I wrote and all of them were my practice for storytelling in four verses, a chorus, and a bridge for much bigger and better things.

1993 part 2 is 101 songs to read and enjoy. Covering a wide range of topics, mostly love, and quite plagiarised by myself. Life in general had changed, the world, the people in it, the ways, the whys, the whats. What the hell were we doing to the world? If only we had kept things the way they were because they changed, and not for the better.

In 1993 I was 19 years old and still living in South Australia, but then, what else was I going to be doing? 1993 is split into two parts as, well, I beat my previous year’s record and wrote 201 songs, so cutting it into two parts makes for easier reading.

This book features lyrics I wrote in 1992 when I was 18 years old. 1992 was a good year musically. I wrote 131 songs, just like in 1991. So I didn’t beat my record from the year before. But that’s okay, there was more to come….

In 1989 I was 15 and started writing song lyrics because I wanted to be the Australian version of Debbie Gibson. In 1990 I was 16 and out of school, listening to more, doing more, and reading more which I guess led me to analyse books… Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote that it was setting me up for bigger and better scribblings...

In Desolation Row, Bob Dylan takes a collection of classic themes and weaves a rich fabric that expresses the reality of 1960’s America. Dylan is not only a deep thinker, but also a broad thinker who articulates and condenses his ideas into elegant verse.
