Hi all, now that the holidays (and thank goodness the in-laws are gone)I am getting around again. This is the 3rd song I have attempted vocals on, I'm doing a blues CD for fun. Thoughts and suggestion on anything very welcome.

Iíve Lost My Mojo


I used to have no problem, was a ladies man,
They melted like putty, while eatin outta my hand
They use to call me debonair, a real Don Juan;
used to call me a charmer, but now the magicís gone

Where did it go
I donít know
Iíve lost my mojo
Iíve lost my mojo

Where did it go
I donít know
Iíve lost my mojo
Iíve lost my mojo

My face is pretty red, Iím still feelin the sting
Didnít see it coming, from that pretty little thing
I gave my usual spiel, the smoothest lines I had
All I got was cold-cocked, and a headache real bad

Where did it go
I donít know
Iíve lost my mojo
Iíve lost my mojo

It just goes to show
Before you know
Youíll lose your mojo
Iíve lost my mojo

Iíve lost my mojo
Iíve lost my mojo

Classic stuff, James.
Not sure the second line in Vs 1 is the best I've ever seen though.
Does putty melt?

Keep up the good work.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Hi James:

Loved the song, your vocal and the backing. I believe you are getting your "sea legs" comfort zone with your "stage presence" and that is always a great thing.

Best of luck with this one... in one of my favorite genres.

Hi Vic, thanks for the listen and comment. The melting like putty line, is a saying I've heard my grandpa and dad use all the time when talking about their womanizing days, I figured it was just an expression of being VERY hot to melt putty.

Nice blues tune, James. Your team did a fine job for you musically. Yeah, I can hear it live in a bar too. Well done.

Say, if you're looking for your mojo, you might ask Mojo Mike where he got his... grin

Thank ya Bobby. I give the musicians all the credit, they made this shine.

I don't sing on this, but maybe you could take a listen, it's more up your alley, and your thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated before we mark it finished.
