When my Mom recently celebrated a milestone Birthday, I wanted to give her something unique – more of a story-worthy moment rather than a material item. Enter Songfinch.

Have a sweet song written about all of your favorite memories. Want to propose in a special way? What about a custom song? Your favorite boss is retiring? Why not gift a song that makes him laugh and reflect? After reading about Songfinch and listening to some sample tunes, I knew this was the perfect unique gift for my Mom.
My experience with Songfinch was smooth and effortless. I wanted to create a light-hearted yet meaningful song for my Mom that was would make her laugh with reminders of all the things she did to embarrass my sister and me growing up. The process starts with completing a fill-in-the-blank “Mad Libs” of sorts, followed by the opportunity to tell stories and describe the person to whom the song is directed. One has the option of a male or female artist, the mood of the song, as well as the type of genre – or you can leave these options to the songwriter to decide. The mood I chose was comical and lighthearted, and the songwriter controlled the rest.
Once I submitted the easy-to-use online questionnaire, my custom song was delivered via email within 7 days, and the outcome was perfect! The songwriter picked up on all the little details provided, and created the perfect song that made my Mom both laugh and cry. She immediately wanted to share the song with her friends and family. The song, titled “Wine and Water,” plays off the point that sometimes we laugh so hard that wine or water comes out my Mom’s nose – sorry Mom!
Feel free to have a listen to or read the lyrics of the song written and recorded for my Mom. It is a pretty catchy tune!
