My friend Noel http://noelheartpoet.wordpress.com/ has one of her beautiful poems turned into a song, by Paradox Obscur and so naturally, I am going to share it! Give it a listen!
Words Without Voices;
Lyrics by Noel Heart, published in 2013 by her poetry collection Blue Lips/Acoustic Suicide;
To be perfectly honest, Paradox Obscur is not my kind of music, at all, but I always liked the poem and somehow they make it all work out. I guess that this goes to show that for me, there are two sides to music. The words and the instruments. Nicely written lyrics get you very far in my world.
So yeah, check it out. It’s a pretty modern number. I’ll bet you that anyone not as old fashioned as me, will love it.
Congrats Noel, my dear, I hope this flies, I really do! No matter what, it must be pretty exciting to have a band pick one of your poems and ask permission to use it. I would imagine that is a wonderful way to be validated as a writer. I couldn’t think of anyone who deserves it more than you!
