Wondering what exactly is ‘I Want To Write You A Song’?
Well, it’s actually pretty straight forward, but here’s how it works! My name is Ben, and I enjoy writing songs, and I would like to write you a song!
I know when I’m feeling particularly happy, sad, or anywhere inbetween, my favorite way to express it is through writing a song. But what if you don’t know how to write a song, don’t have time to, or simply just have something going on you know a song would make better? That’s where I come in!
I want to know your story. Did you recently meet your dream girl/boy? Break up with your high school sweetheart? Be abducted by aliens? Find a 5 dollar bill on the gorund? No matter how big or small it is, send it over on my Submit An Idea page along with your name, where you are from (Just City, and State will do) and your email. Then, every month (or less) I will pick a new song idea and write a song inspired by your story and written specially for you! You’ll receive credit for being the one who inspired the song on my main page, where everyone can see it, listen to it, and download it!
I only ask one thing in exchange! Please tell your family, your friends, your boyfriends and girlfriends, your dentist, doctor, parents, mailman, garbage man, and anyone else who you think will listen to our songs! I can only continue to do this with YOUR help, so please spread the word of IWantToWriteYouASong.com and your song, to help me keep doing what I Iove to do. I will be forever grateful for all of your help in submitting your song ideasand telling all of your friends about it!
A quick Q&A never hurt anyone!
So, you’re going to write ME a song?
Yep. Every week, I’ll pick a submission that’s particularly touching, funny, cute, innocent, and/or intriguing, and write a song about it. I will then post it up here, along with your first name and last initial (unless you prefer not be mentioned) and where you are from. It will then be available for you, your friends, your family, and whoever else is looking to hear your song, or for some new music to enjoy.
Is this going to cost me anything?
Nope! You don’t have to pay me a cent! Once I finish a new song and post it, I will also make it available on my Song Database page, where you have the option to download the song in a number of formats, at a name-your-own-price rate. That means, you can enter 0.00 and get it for completely free, or, if you’re feeling a little generous, enter whatever amount you like. The songs will be available to everyone in this way (including just the common passerby)
I want a song, but I don’t want anyone to know!
Easy! When you submit your song idea, simply state that you would like to remain annonymous if your song is chosen by clicking the appropriate box located next to the ‘name’ field! This way, once I post the song, I will refrain from making your name public anywhere. It can be our little secret! = )
Will I own the song?
Unfortunately, no… It’ll still be my song, but written about you. I’ll be putting a lot of time in to write the music as well as the lyrics for a song inspired by you. But at the end of it all, all I will have to show for it are these songs! I will retain all the rights to the songs I write. However, I’d love it if you’d share it with whomever you like! Spread the music, burn it, copy it, paste it, I’m all for the free exchange of the songs!
I have a question that’s not covered here!
Oh no! I’m sorry I missed it! Send it over to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you ASAP! = )
