Composer[edit]

Recently an edit was made to suggest that Ralph is a "songwriter", but not a composer. A songwriter can be a person who writes the music, lyrics or both. As far as I know, Ralph only writes music. Can anyone correct me? Does he do lyrics as well? If so, please cite a reference. Thanks. EuroSong talk 20:31, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Songwriters are not covered by the 'art music' Composers Project, so the question is not really about whether or not he composes per se. --Kleinzach 02:34, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Well it is actually. He writes in the pop idiom and writers of popular and folk music (even if they don't write the lyrics) are called songwriters, normally. See the explanation at the end of the composers article. Hence, I also changed the word in his entry. --Jubilee♫clipman 03:37, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
BTW, there aren't any sources in this article, anyway, so how can we verify what he is? You might actually start by saving this article from the Deletionists... then we can argue over his precise designation re songwriter/composer. Eurovision is not my field but I suspect EuroSong could come up with a few decent references. --Jubilee♫clipman 03:46, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

River of Silence[edit]

Why is "River of Silence" so notable that it deserves a special mention? Image of me (talk) 05:07, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
