Include Your Thoughts In Our Upcoming Book!
Another Stony Meadow Publishing's release (scheduled for the third
quarter of 2010) will be The Songwriter's Companion: 1001 Song Ideas
(A Collection of Ideas and Inspiration for Songwriters.).
We have decided to include song ideas from actual songwriters for this
Here's what we need: We
need you to send us an idea about something to write a song about.
(Following is a couple of samples from the book so you'll know what we're
after. Your entry should follow the format in these examples.)
WRITE A SONG ABOUT... A Walk In The Park
"Writing a song or poem about this subject should be as easy as... well, a

spend their life crawling along fences simply for our amusement? And how
the heck do they manage to keep all of those feet moving? And do male
centipedes curl up and die when they get the bill for their wive's shoes?"
WRITE A SONG ABOUT... A Turkey and Provolone Sandwich
"Boring? I don't think so. What if you bite into the sandwich and find a
note? Is someone admiring you? Threatening you? Or maybe the turkey was
bad and now you're sick as a dog and never want to see food again. Or what
if you started to take a bite and the sandwich actually spoke to you.
Crazy? Maybe not. That anchovy pizza I had last night is still talking to
It's that simple!
