this is the very first song that I wrote. It is also on U Tube. It seems to be a firm favourite with most people.
A rather nice little ballad that is already being copied. It is, of course, a love song.
Will O' the Wisp is a new track with words written by me (Colin Scott) with subtle changes and melody by Colin Shore, who has also made the recording.
This track is one that I wrote thinking of the current "fad" for gender changing/bending. Recorded at the Scamp Studios it is a really funky sound.
This track was sent for assessment by the Guild and was noted as "a likely standard on open mic sessions". A nostalgic sort of song with just one cock-up in the recording - the final line should be "I would EVEN take a vow". My bad on the lyric sheet I sent in. I do have a backing version should anyone want to try it.
A rockin' good Christmas rock song.
The suggestion was to write a song about happiness. I thought that getting good news after finding a lump was pretty happy, so here it is. Fully recorded at home with computer drum, child's keyboard and acoustic guitar that I have some difficulty with after the stroke.
This is a song that I wrote in an attempt at writing a rock tune. At least that's the intention. I don't think it has turned out too bad considering , again, it's a home recording.
This is 2020's new Christmas song. It was requested by one of my fans (yes I do!) and has been given the thumbs up by them, too. Hope you enjoy it.
This is a song that I wrote and recorded at home. The first version I became unhappy with, so I completely re-worked it. I am very grateful for my good neighbour Holly for providing the "YES" near the end. I needed a female voice.
Another straight forward love song, but quite nice.
A pleasant little ditty I think. Picture yourself on or near your favourite piece of water and drift into the lyrics.
A typical love song that says it all for itself.
A story of wishing from afar, then love coming true in the end.
A very humorous song ready for Christmas 2021. This is one of my favourites and still makes me laugh.
A story of a couple who dated and then split. He (or she) now wants to meet again. A noce one.
He fell in love (at first sight) with a street walker.
A pleasant ballad about a couple's 50th wedding anniversary, and the events leading there.
Young love that can't wait, so comes the plea - let's move in.
One that is a trad love song, and one that I particularly like. I entered it into the UK Songwriting Competition and it achieved three stars. The Judges comments included:- Competently crafted; Songwriting ability and potential; Positive and encouraging. I am quite chuffed with my first venture into major competitions.
A rather nice rock song.
Another rock song, and one that is well liked.
A very nice ballad about bringing his love many presents - finishing with his heart! This acoustic version (I also made a fuller version) has been entered in the 2022 Talent is Timeless Songwriting Competition - for over 50's and acoustic only. Fingers crossed.
Something of a quite heavy rock number. It seems well liked.
The gambler has a problem - losing! He wants "them" to stop him. No willpower.
Trying to get sense into a runaway's head.
