I'm a girl that likes loud rock music and writes poptunes. I front a band called Starfucker (www.starfuckerband.com) and write for belgian popartists. I am looking to write for more artists, so if you like one of my songs just contact me... I am also planning on recording some songs of my own.

Biography

Marlies has been writing songs since the age of eleven. She would perform them in front of her family and friends and schoolmates. In 99 she met Mattias Vos and together they formed a punkband named Last Picked. After a year of punkrock they decided to move out to Leuven together and start a new project. It took them a while to find the right musicians. Meanwhile Marlies was doing some backing vocals on different punk and rockprojects in Belgium. In 2003 she founded the band Starfucker. A rocking punkband with two girls and two boys playing loud! They started playing every club in the country and won several competitions. In 2005 producer Ronald Prent (rammstein, guano apes, faith no more etc) heard of the band and started working with the band in order to get them to play more pro. At this point the band is ready to record their first album and looking around for a label to put it outthere.

In the meanwhile Marlies ran into Walter Mannaerts, a professional songwriter published by BMG/Sony Belgium. He liked the things she was writing and got her into some songwritingsessions. She co-wrote on the album of Nell, and the first single is one of those songs. Marlies is currently working on other songwritingprojects for Belgian artists.

Marlies has lately written a lot of slower, softer and poppier songs and has therefor started her own project that is (for now) called Marlies and The Hats. (www.myspace.com/marliesandthehats), the recordings will be up soon.

Lyrics

The Kennedy Adventure

Written By: Marlies Van Wemmel

Fools regret an adventure like this but I never said that a single moment of this 36 hour day wasn't worth it, 36 hours of the Kennedy Adventure.

I believed it, I believed it
I stood on that sidewalk and was torn into pieced but hey there is no way I could not have believed in you and me
It hit me for a moment...

Now I know that all my energy has faded into something I wrote, it was a seven-page-letter for a 36 hour day, It was worth it, 36 hours of the Kennedy Adventure...

I believed it, I believed it
I stood on that sidewalk and was torn into pieced but hey there is no way I could not have believed in you and me
It hit me for a moment...

Now I believe in a lot of things, but I never had a feeling like this

I believed it, I believed it
I stood on that sidewalk and was torn into pieced but hey there is no way I could not have believed in you and me
It hit me for a moment.

you and me, you and me, you and me... it hit me for a moment.

Stealing The Show

Written By: Marlies Van Wemmel

I read the whole thing on a patch, 'living well is th best revenge'
I woke up and I told myself I am going to do that.

So I took the offer from the guys
Sent my greeting and goodbyes
You can think all that you want

I don't mind
I just want to ask you something:
don't you regret you lose a friend like that?

I'll never sit down and die
I'll never tell another lie
I'm the girl you used to know
stealing the show
You'll never smash another dream
You'll get sour when I'm sweet as cream
still the girl you used to know
stealing the show

You can tell your friend I miss him a lot and you can tell him that you are sorry that you screwed it between us
You had every chance and you never wanted, and I have waited...

I don't mind
I just want to ask you something:
don't you regret you lose a friend like that?

I'll never sit down and die
I'll never tell another lie
I'm the girl you used to know
stealing the show
You'll never smash another dream
You'll get sour when I'm sweet as cream
still the girl you used to know
stealing the show
