The following is version two of the song I posted titled: “Some People”.  See the following link to review the post: https://midimike.com/2016/04/12/co-write-a-song-with-me/.

I do want to thank the brave participants and hope I reflected your thoughts for each verse.  I added as needed and took out as little as possible to fit the melody, but much of your thoughts are intact.  The first two verses and one other verse are in the original release.  If you have not sent in your submissions there is still time, and I will add them in a final version.  Everyone knows “Some People” LOL!

To re-cap, I posted the song and video for Some People asking fellow bloggers to write verses for a new version of the song based on the format of the original lyrics.  Each submission blogger is credited for their writings above each verse as co-authors!  Who knows, maybe another video is in order and authors could submit pictures for their verses.

Some people are happy
A smile or two to spread
Some people, they feel blue
With cold steel pressed against their heads
Trembling like me?
Or dancing like you?

 

Charles G. says:

Some say it’s not their place
Others misuse the day
The faithful will say grace
Some have too much to say
A wonderful spot
To watch it revolve

 

None Other Then Hannah says:

Some beings are kind,
Generous to others.
While many are glued,
Haunt victims to the ache.
Countless overcome,
And show way of escape.

 

Ancient Skies says:

Some people are just people

not me but you –

longing for a reason to

not to be blue –

hey my brother hang in,

you can sing again –

 

it’s all about the tune you see –

but this life just ain’t free.

Some people are just people,

not me but you.

So sing that tune

to chase the blues.

 

tracihalpin says:

Some people are real
Some people pretend
Some people don’t feel
Which one are you?

 

atribeuntangled says:

Some people say they spread the love,

believe like them and rise above.

But if you stray and use your mind

you fall so fast and ties unbind.

      Very cool. I am thinking of having someone else sing the song. It is just barely out of my range and I think it could be more powerful with a good vocalist. I am glad you liked my summary line about the mask. I hoped I got the intention behind your verse. I also hope you are doing well.

        Hi Mike! Yes you got the intention behind my verse. I’m interested to hear it with a more powerful voice. I’m not all that great right now, but that’s the way this stuff goes. Med adjustments and episodes this month. Things will get back to some type of balance, but it can take a while. I hope you are doing well. I have been watching lots of Johnny Rzeznik interviews; he is so funny and down to earth..very humble. The new music is great, and he seems really happy. It’s interesting to watch him grow and mature from the 90’s to now; he grows and the music grows which is what he always says. In a recent interview he said he didn’t care if the record only sold 10 copies. He said we worked with amazing cowriters and producers and we did our best work and that’s all that matters. He said he had made a decision from the beginning of recording this album that he would not work with anyone who is difficult. He did say working with others half his age was humbling and he learned a lot. He also said sometimes they would tell him No that sucks, do it again! He said sometimes he had to leave the room. He said it’s a process to create in that way. Just like you being willing to have someone else sing the song; that is humbling of you 🙂
