About the Book

PONGS ‘N SOEMS Pongs: Could be Songs and Soems: Could be Poems PONGS ‘N SOEMS is a 60-year collection of PONGS (could be songs) and SOEMS (could-be poems) but all are lyrics. This work is aimed at the individual looking for material his/her next million seller. As well, this compilation will speak to songwriting/poem writing hobbyists.It endeavours to encourage journaling thoughts, ideas, notions no matter how initially insignificant they seem. Yes, perhaps the multi-million seller song awaits you, the reader, to pen it. If not that, then one may ignite a flair for writing anything from simple lyrics to free verse poetry of the loftiest kind. Herein between the covers lie several melodies which the guitarist can play. On youtube (type in Frederick Mundle youtube) you can see and hear how some PONGS became studio recorded songs and how some SOEMS ended up being set to music. This author’s pastime netted him some incredible collaborating connections musically from Chicago, to Detroit, Windsor and Toronto, ON, Montreal, PQ, as well as from Eastern NB and Gaspe, PQ.
