I’ve written a few songs over my time. I started writing crappy songs, for guitar and vocals, a few of which I still have saved on my hard drive. my favourite one was “What Can I Say”, of which there were multiple recordings and versions, none of which were ever released because I hated my singing. I then moved onto rapping, writing songs for my youtube channel ReeceWeaverTV. It started with Welcome to Dagenham, which got almost 1000 views, but when downhill from there. I gave that up after I realised the 8th song I wrote was crap. But my highlights from that were Welcome to Dagenham and Broken Hearts and Bleeding Eardrums. All of that embarrassment is still live. I wrote a song called Leave This City which was half sung and half rapped, but I can’t remember much of it, although there is a recording somewhere. I then went on to write a few songs for my band, the most notable of which is Leaving Here, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP8Z-_3xbwo) which is the only one we released. I wrote another song called Miles Away which I performed myself, but am waiting for the whole band to preform. I’ve also wrote the chord sequences for a few songs which Mac wrote lyrics for, and I’ve wrote a few other untitled songs which are knocking about. I like writing songs, it’s a fun, natural bit of creativity, and it’s a good way to express the things you are feeling.
