    Hello Dear Listener,
    First, my apologies for getting this out one day later. Second, this is a continuation of our first 30 Word song prompt episode and you may wish to go back and listen to that one before you dive into this one (definitely not necessary). This week Emily and Hope. use the SAME 30 words to construct new songs and in this one you'll find out how they did.

    We love Taylor. Who doesn't? She's had such a great long and diverse career that there were lots of options to choose from when thinking about how to write a song like her. Tune in this week and then write your own!

    Educational Song

    Music is a great teaching tool. Songs that teach ideas are as old as ideas and songs put together. This week, Emily and Hope write some songs to teach everyone a thing or two. Two things. She teaches one thing in song and I teach another. Have a listen then write your own!

    Re-Runs

    The prompt today is "re-runs." So all you latch key kids, don't answer the door or answer the phone til Mom comes home from work and settle in for a long afternoon of, you guessed it, reruns.

    Small Town News

    What do we know stuff about? Not that much. But we DO know a thing or two about small town news. That's our prompts, these are our songs, and you are still awesome.

    Reality Bites

    Reality Bites

    I think by now you know about how old Emily and Hope are and in this episode they double down on the nostalgia and Gen X vibe while talking through their "Reality Bites" inspired songs one bite at a time. "Melrose Place is a really good show."

Like fine wine…

They just get better all the time! You’ll want to listen to each week for song writing basics, tips and tricks with engaging bonus banter. These women need their own SiriusXM show!

Peak into the songwriting process

I’m getting to this podcast late in the game but who cares? I’m excited to catch them all and respond to some of their prompts— “If we can do it, anyone can do it” as they say. It’s fun to get a peak into how these two work and rework their songs. And their sisters in law friendship is very sweet and supportive.

The BEST songwriting podcast out there!

I love this podcast! Hope and Emily are so talented and motivational. These lovely ladies make song writing sound easy and fun—and it is! They encourage folks to send their own work in with a change to have it played on the show. So awesome. Thanks Dunbars for doin’ watcha do, and encourage listeners to share their creations too!
