Hi All,

I have not posted here in quite a while - thought I would share a new song - somewhat of a blend of folk, vintage beatbox, and laid back RnB. The inspiration comes from an old friend with a real zest for life and moving forward.

This is called [size:14pt][color:#3366FF]I Can't Imagine A World Without Me[/color][/size].

Thanks for listening!

Bob

I think there is a bit of Bob Dylan in this song! Good lyrics and sounds. Nice job.

Bob,

Like everything about this. Wonderful imagery - cool lyric all around.

The music works perfectly. The organ/percussion combination with the occasional sax - very original sounding. And the mix is excellent.

Nice vocal.

A great listen

Hi Bob,

I liked your song too. Sounds like your done with production, but should you ever re-visit this song, I think a "Bridge" in this song would be effective in breaking the story in half, you might lose the 2nd sax solo, but I think it would be less predictable and strengthen the song's return after bridge. I'm not saying it is imperative or that all songs need bridges--I just think this song is "perfect" for one--and it should be a dramatic statement as well.

I really enjoyed your song, and good seeing you around!

steady-eddie.

Hi Bob,

Very catchy and cool! I like the half sung half spoken vocals sound here, and the production is simple and effective.

Great work!
Mike

I like this one, Bob. I got a bit of whiplash between Bob Dylan and Lou Reed, but in a good way of course.

Some of your references like "That Girl" and Steinem might be lost on anyone over 50 but maybe you're seeking out a more mature age group? Just wondering. Very cool sound over all.

Hi Bob: (or would you prefer Robert?)

I agree with the others. Catchy and a bit "Dylanesque"... and that is a compliment. Looking forward to hearing more from you here at JPF. Thanks for sharing. ----Dave

Nice groove, lyrics, good work! But, as a man of 65 years, I can easily follow the song, but what about the youngin's about? They'll have to google some stuff, but better they should, eh?

Hey Robert,

Really listenable song mate. The hook is just great, and the whole vibe works well with the story telling.

A keeper for sure.

Hi Robert,

I enjoyed listening to your song very much. It has a certain quality about it that holds ones attention.

As a writer of lyrics more than a singer songwriter I thought that they were catchy and held ones attention to the end. A good write.

Ross.
