I here from Janet Jackson to Maxwell to SADE mostly. Who do you hear?
I'm going to have to say Tim McGraw on this one. He just has this voice that really brings you in to the words of his songs.
It depends on the song. Definately not me, that's for sure. I wish I was born with a natural talent like that. But it's funny how when you write the song you immediately know who should sing it, or at least I do. lol.
I hear the whispers of a lover in my ear,the ebb of waves to a rocky shore and the lilt of a blackbird as the day dawns...
i hear myself singing them, if I am writing them for me assuming...
I try to get a basic rhythm to the idea and then write to that - trying to keep it broadly within one of the classic styles, but usually end up in some kind of variation on a sonnet theme.
I was once actually paid cash to sing both here in America and in the UK. because of this and my songwriting partnerships in the past, if it is a love song I am co-writing then I hear ME singing it.
Sometimes I envision Amy Lee or Imogen Heap singing them. And with one song I wrote, Taylor Swift.
But normally, I can only see myself singing my songs. It's like hearing someone else recite one of my poems; something just feels off.
Nick Cave, Steve Kilbey, or Elizabeth Fraser, depending on my mood & the tone of the song.
Some of my favourite love songs are the old ones; Nat King Cole and 'When I Fall in Love', 'Misty' by Johnny Mathis, '... Loving You Too Long' by Otis Redding ... I just melt when I hear them.
I write a lot of stuff, it pops out my head into a lyrical mess in a notebook. Weeks later for no planned reason I return to it, this time it is placed in order with the tune.
When ever I write about love or love songs in particular, I hear the average man or women riding in their cars or bathing in the shower singing with passion(but off-key as hell LOL) every lyric i write. As a matter of fact, I'm usually the first one to do it!
Gosh so many. Barbara Streisand, Whitney Houston, Fleetwood Mac, Zepplin has a few good ones. I could go on. :-)
I always hear myself singing.... However when I sing it for real it's not me!!!!!
It depends on the song. I have one song that I wrote that is about youth violence. that is the type of song i woold want to hear various artists sing. ( A "We are the world" type scenario.) When to love songs "Jennifer Hudson, Jasmine Sullivan, and Maxwell etc.)

I think that I hum as some sort of coping mechanism. I always find myself humming "Don't Worry be Happy" by Bobby Mcferrin or a slower, drawn out version of "Singing in the Rain" by Gene Kelly.

Is there a special song that takes you back to a certain time in your life?Songs have a way of influencing our thoughts as they speak to our hearts. Is there a special song that every time you hear it, you feel the same as you did when you first heard it? Taking you back to certain memories and...

Do you hate your own voice?Of all insecurities that I have (and the list is long), disliking my own voice is a nightmare. Did you have any time in your life that you hated (or hate) your voice and what did you do to improve the situation? The irony is that I am not a singer, not young,...
