I don't have alot of my old scratch demos of songs any more, looking for them.

I did find this one, kind of a pop punk thing remembering school athletes.a metaphor for any walk of life too

I ran it through many times to get to get it like I intended. It's close, they polish it a bit

I couldn't get it to change keys like I did out of the bridge so I left final chorus out. Changing keys I suppose will not happen in udio

Listen to how they use my ideas, which they are basing soley on the rhythm of the words, cause they didn't hear my melody... I'm suing udio!.

They also seem to understand attitude
First track dead air for bout ten seconds

Good at Sports

There goes the girl
on the step she twirls
lip-syncs a cheer
made for the jock of the year

and she moves just right
must be wild at night
but I'll never know
cause im too frickon slow

and my mom says i'm just fine this way
but I dont care...

I wanna be good at sports
I wanna go first when they pick the teams
I wanna look good in gym shorts
just like the cover of a magazine
I wanna hear people yell "yay"
all the cheerleaders say...I'm great
I wanna be good at sports

Eddie quarterback
takes a course in slack
teachers tell him jokes
nerds out cleanin his spokes

What better way to be
now here comes ann marie
does a peak- a-boo
hey buddy i'm tellin you

I'd trade in my neato G.P.A.
"to be like Mike...."

I wanna be good at sports
I wanna go first when they pick the teams
I wanna look good in gym shorts
just like the cover of a magazine
I wanna hear people yell "yay"
all the cheerleaders say...I'm great

But here I am in the bleacher seats (let's all do the wave!)
wearin tennis shoes not athletic cleats (let's all do the wave!)
aint gonna score a thing from way up here (let's all do the wave!)
I'm just takin in the atmosphere (let's all do the wave!)

let's all do the wave
let's all do the wave
let's all do the wayyyyyyyyyyyyve

I think your just frustrated on the music biz , If I was you I'd invest in your self and talk with Brent Baxter, a professional in the music biz
I'm sure people will say I'm not paying to be in the music biz , your paying to see doctors , its no difference
suing robots , Well i (guess) that's going to happen eventually

Fdem,
sorry, but I don’t get the point you’re making here. You say “it’s close”. Close to what? Are you saying these songs are close? To me they are totally different. They have the same lyrics and the same song structure, but that’s about all they have in common. If you put la-la-las on top of your lyrics in both tracks you will notice that the songs have a different chord sequence, different melodies, etc. These are totally different songs with the same lyrics. Why do you want to sue Udio? Because the used your lyrics in two songs? Sorry, but I don’t get it. I actually like the first demo better than the second one.

The rhythm of the melody is pretty close. I actually like my version better, and that annoying singer which is popular these tines

I wouldn't say they are totally different. The bridge is .. mainly because I set mine up to change keys . Soi I couldn't really find a bridge close to mine

I mean the sound is different mine is a scratch d no

It's very similar, they hold the goooioid st sports, which I don't really like, I tried 20 times to get exact phrasing

Buts it clear it's on the same wave length

And I agree I like mine better. This just gives me a fast full demo of it

Demos take time and work.

Suing udio was a joke.

But it's to show the song exists before udiio.

If you go in with a full song it's gonna give better results

Fdem,
if you take out the lyrics these songs are totally different, not just the bridge but the other parts as well. Just because they use similar instruments doesn't mean they are similar in regards to the songwriting. I don't know what you mean with "on the same wave length". I always thought if a melody is not the same, it's different. If someone else wrote that second song with different lyrics I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have to give you any credits. But, feel free to think differently.

I wrote the song, I have my own take on it. I'm also a musician and singer, I don't know why your arguing about this.

Melody, is a combination of rhythm and pitch.

If you were to take the melody of any song and sing the same note all the way through, but with the same rhythm of the notes. It would be rhythmically similar or the same, even if the notes were different .

Udio is not singing the same notes, but it's is similar in rhythm.

The point was, the lyrics have a rhythm to them, and they are using that to form the melody, and to form an emotion.

You're right, the chords are different, the harmony is different.

But the rhythm, particularly of the verse is very similar. It's a staccato type of melody.

In this song, I think mine is better, but if
My point is lost on you , so be it.

You can think however you want
