So I'm sure that there are many people here who follow "the old ways" and this is a way for us to find each other. Come out of the broom closet!

If you write a song in the spirit (It *is* the time of Imbolc!), tag your song with the #magick tag and leave a link to it here.

You rang? This witch is starting things off with some big manis - and I don't mean the kind from the nail salon! #WitchHumor

Hello! I believe I've already written FAWM and 50/90 songs for all the Wheel of the Year holidays that fall within the time frame of the challenges, so I may have to start trying to put myself in the headspace of other times of year to complete the set. Or I may just branch out and start writing pagan-flavored songs for other upcoming holidays. I've certainly found some interesting info about the roots of Valentine's Day.

Just waiting for Lammas to roll around again 😀 I'm an eternal baker for sure!

My spirituality is definitely Earth-based. If I'm not a Pagan, I'm at least Pagan-adjacent. Here's the song I wrote for the First Fruits challenge: https://write.fawm.org/songs/12746

This is normally like all my songs 🤭 I'll be sure to use your tag if anything I write for FAWM meets this criteria.

There's a #magick tag! (admittedly it's not a spelling I normally use so I didn't think to try it...)

But yes, I'm pagan, specifically a witch... I was using the #pagan tag - what's best to find folk with do you think?

@candle
I was going to do one for 50/90 & never got around to it. I will endeavour to fit a #magick #pagan #druidic song into my FAWMing this season of Imbolc. Thanks for the reminder @beacon!

See You In The Shadows…

I’m a mix. Christian/Methodist but of Celtic heritage and celebrate Samhain more than All Saints Day. A close friend was a witch and helped me cope with my anxiety when the veil thinned. I enjoy taking part in the tarot challenge each FAWM. I’ll keep this tag in mind.

@haloquin - we decided on the #magick tag a few years ago because it left more room for interpretation/was more inclusive. Someone may practice their craft without identifying as pagan or Wiccan or insert All The Things. You can always add additional tags to make it more specific to your practice, but this seemed a good one to have in common.

Witch here! It doesn’t come into my lyrics too much - but music IS magic right? Hyped for the hashtag :)

Merry meet, All. I’m a witch. And, FAWM last year resulted in me recording my album ‘The Goddess Reflective’ which can be found on Bandcamp and all the other digital outlets. So far this year, in the witchy vein, I’ve managed to put a poem for Imbolc that I wrote to music, here: https://write.fawm.org/songs/12694
[avatar]
Oh great, thanks for clarifying @vivalarayna ! ☺️ (I've added it to my profile as all my music has connections to magic!)
[avatar]
@haloquin My solution is to use multiple hashtags when I think a song fits them, since hashtags help people here find songs they're interested in.
[avatar]
That makes sense, @wylddandelyon (I am new to FAWM, obviously, and still working on clarifying the nuances!)
[avatar]
I’ve been known to let a lyric slip out now and again in this vein. Hopefully one will appear again this year!✨

So, I've finally got my Imbolc song, "Frolic and Song" up https://write.fawm.org/songs/16946.
[avatar]
Oooh, hello! Love the #magick tag. I've written one song so far that qualifies and am planning on writing more. Earth-based, folklore enthusiast, intuitive witch here😁
[avatar]
This is a lovely thread! I guess I have something that might fit in here...

I don’t consider myself Wiccan/pagan anymore, but enjoyed it when I was younger. Thought this might be a good place to drop some witchy rap from me and @kristian. https://write.fawm.org/songs/19798#c82942

Here is my song, Sacred Space https://write.fawm.org/songs/21480

Probably all of my songs have hints of my shamanic point of view, but there are three in particular that stand out in this category. “All for Naught” https://write.fawm.org/songs/13756 and “Thorn Through the Heart” https://write.fawm.org/songs/17600 are built on shamanic imagery (but are also very sad). “The Curse of Wherever You Are” https://write.fawm.org/songs/19211 traces my name origin back to Ishtar.

If anything, I suppose I'm pagan: I observe the sabbats and value my connection to earthly surroundings at a near-spiritual level. Wrote this one earlier, which is very #Imbolc ❄️ https://write.fawm.org/songs/18431
[avatar]
I'm pretty sure I said that most of my songs have this theme, but I wrote one that is very obviously based on a spell haha. https://write.fawm.org/songs/21671

I don't know how I missed this thread earlier - what was I doing?!! I haven't had too many specific pagan songs this year but here's one: https://write.fawm.org/songs/20076

@yam655
I currently identify as an animist, as I believe in orders of magnitude more spirits and deities than most polytheists. I have one kid that clings to atheism as a way to make sense of their world, and another that has only recently decided to identify as an animist after years of being adamantly in favor of cars having souls.

As an example: Some people have vague notions of the energetic of a group. I just straight-up believe that all relationships (and systems) have souls, and I once prayed to the spirit of a relationship and gotten an answer that was meaningful and helpful.

I used to be really big on finding a way to be in a subculture of any subculture that I was a part of. I was always the fringe of the fringe. While that's no longer a key part of my identity, I do still have the legacy that it has wrought. I sometimes use different words than is common, but these days I'm pretty good at translating in to common parlance.

I don't always tag my animist songs because it is like my ace/aro songs, they're really the norm. I sing songs that sometimes sound strange or silly, but if I properly tagged them #animism folks would know I'm totally serious about them.

Here's another paganish song I finally managed to produce this FAWM: https://write.fawm.org/songs/22848
