ONE NIGHT STOLE FOREVER
Song 2 of 7 (in a story)

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=1245656&songID=13598309

Lyrics and Musical Structure by Martin Lide
Lead vocals by Martin Lide
Guitar solo in instrumental bridge by Martin Lide
Rhythm Guitar by Martin Lide

Sound Engineering and production Michael Zaneski
All other instrumentation whether real or virtual by Michael Zaneski
Backing vocals by Michael Zaneski
Guitar Solo in the outro by Michael Zaneski
Every time you hear a cranky cool "spaghetti Western-ish" guitar fill...that's Michael Zaneski.

This song is 2 of 7 in a song story and will become part of a score for an audio-book that
Michael is going to help me record. This song describes a voicemail by a betrayed lover
left on the cell phone of the betrayer.

This will probably be the last song that I put up on a song site until the audio-book is
complete and at least a dozen book publishers and/or literary agents have declined it.
Hey, got nothing to lose by trying. wink

The lyrics are in lyrics 3.

I enjoyed the second "chapter" of this "novel" and hope you've found a way to "open the lock to the money chest." Best of luck in this interesting project. There is a publisher out there... and no doubt, you will find them. Interesting concept and from what I've heard thus far, destined for good things. Z's work certainly enhances this creative story. See you when you have the time. Happy trails! ----Dave

Thanks Dave.

An unknown author's chances are no better than an unknown songwriters, but it'll be fun to try.

Martin (and Mike),

This opens with such drive and emotion musically—having heard the first chapter I can feel the transition to his point of view. A strong follow up, solid all the way through. I’ll offer one suggestion that struck me each time I listened (and, yes, I listened multiple times). I love the line “When you're the one that done it, not the one done to.” I might go for “When you’re the one that done it, not the one you done it to.” I know it adds two extra syllables, but there’s room for it and, to me at least a rhythm in the saying. As Eddie would say, "use or lose". Loved the listen, the performance—all. Keep it coming!!

Regards,

Deej

Thanks for listening multiple times and offering a suggestion.

When I first wrote that part of the lyric, I wrote it exactly as you said. Then, I was singing it with the guitar and it abbreviated itself without me really intending that. I ended up going with the abbreviated version because I liked the way that it "landed" emotionally.

"not-the one-you done-it to." (bum-pa bum-pa bum-pa bang)

"Not-the one-done-to." (bum-pa bang bang bang)

Now that I'm looking at it again, I'm not sure that I like the version that I used better. wink

This little project with the written chapters has turned into a much larger endeavor than I thought it would. IF...a real publishing house or agent takes a liking to it (and not some outfit that is just churning editing fees) then the entire thing will be back on the drawing board. I'll keep your comment in mind and appreciate you making it.

Martin

Ricki

I'm very glad that you asked that because it gives me a chance to expose my ignorance and maybe learn somethiing.

Background...

Rather than writing to a hook, I wrote a situational song story about a young couple from Cheyenne, Wyoming.
It involved a love of your life relationship that was destroyed by an indiscreet night. The story went from
start thru destruction thru desire to reconcile to resolution.

Then I decided to write a short story about the song story figuring that it would be 6000-10000 words.
So far, Chapter one is 20,000 words and so is chapter two. The seven songs will turn into seven chapters.
It looks like I'm headed for 80,000 to 100,000 words. A short novel.

I decided to shoot for an audio-book complete with complimenting songs. I'm gonna recite the book myself which is
harder than one would think...and intersperse the songs. All with the help of the very talented Michael Zaneski.

Going forward only on intuition and what I have found on the web...

These days an unknown writer has to pay a real publisher to review their work.
It seems that two chapters is what a lot of them want to see to conclude whether it is any good or not.
Of course, I enjoy my writing but I have no idea if someone in the book business would see it as meritorious or just a
string of tired and poorly written cliches that would interest no one enough to purchase.

I'm personally convinced that if you have a good idea but are not "connected" and post it on the web, then some
writer or agent is going to steal the idea and give it to someone that they control. Re: Chelsea Clinton and the current lawsuit against her children's book.

The dilemma starts to look like seven card stud.
Seven cards or chapters with two exposed to view to show that you have something and five cards down to make it hard to know what all you might have.

And as I stated, that assumes that it is meritorious and not just a string of tired cliches.

Ricki...I hope that answers your question.

Thank you Gavin. Please see the post that I addressed to Ricki. I tried to explain what my project is.

Martin, 80,000 words is not a short novel. It's about standard length. 20,000 words is a huge chapter! I haven't seen it obviously, but have you thought of dividing the book into parts and having chapters within each part?
Don't pay a publisher to look at your work. And certainly don't pay to be published. Better to do it all yourself.

Thanks Gavin.

I'm already learning something. I thought that Novels started at about 80k words and went up from there. I do have the first two chapters divided into five or six sections each as subtitles. My only beta reader so far is my wife (who is not an expert but an avid fiction reader) and she said that I needed to create sections to keep the reader oriented. I'm trying to stay with the idea of one chapter per song.

My goal is to complete the audio-books and then find a dozen people truly in the business to present them to. I'm thinking a dozen reactions will tell me if I'm any good or not. I don't mind paying for that if they are the real deal.

Would never pay a "dream-churner" to publish the audio-books. That would be wasted money. If I am told that there is nothing exceptional about my stuff, I plan to finish anyway and put it up on some free download site somewhere...and have done it. Will be able to scratch... "writing a book and gave it a shot"... off of my bucket list.

I appreciate your feed back. Anything else that you want to share that will keep me from stumbling in the dark is appreciated.

Martin

I forgot to say thank you for the encouragement.

And yes...working with the "Michael Zaneski Orchestra" is very pleasurable. What I've learned in doing a handful of songs with him is that...if we have a difference of opinion on something musical, there is a 99% chance that I am going to end up going back to what he suggested in the first place. After two or three of those occurrences, once I give him some stems, I stay out of his way.

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.

Thanks Vic.

I tell ya...I have songwriter pal here in Houston who I enjoy running into from time to time. He suggested that I pay someone who spun off NSAI 25 bucks to evaluate one of my songs. He said that if that person likes it they might plug it in Nashville. So I did. The response I got (paraphrased)...

The lyric is well written and the music is good but I don't think anyone would listen to it twice". ;(

My point? I have a well developed mental and emotional gear for hearing that kind of assessment about my songs....but "Brilliant!"...I had to sit and look at that for a few seconds. I wish it were true but don't think that it is, nevertheless, thank you for writing something so kind and encouraging. smile

If there is any brilliance in the recording...it's in the sensibilities of Michael.

Dave, Deej, Calvin, Ricki, Gavin, and Vic:

Martin and I have a lot of overlap in our musical appreciation, so it's easy for me to arrange and produce rather intuitively and know that I'm at least hitting the mark somewhat.

Plus, I think I mentioned before, his own guitar work gives me lots of ideas in and of itself, in terms of doubling and harmonizing with other instruments. It's full of hammer-ons and pull-offs and chordal suspensions and is pretty damn contrapuntal for a mostly non-fingerpicking style.

Anyway, thanks friends.

And Martin, you aren't afraid to let a serious song be serious, and carry emotional weight, without attempting to offset that weight with witty this and that.

Your story songs feel true and from the heart. smile

Hey Fella.

Good to see your name. How is Whitmire these days? Or is it Oregon now?

I still have your CD, "Good Dogs and Bad Weather" prominently placed on my personal momento shelf. smile

How are you?

All good here man. In East Oregon for now. Hawaii for the winter. It's a long story.

How is this audio book coming? Sounds like a cool project.

The book is fun. Am getting help from a talented and skilful guy who I met on this site named Michael Zaneski. The first chapter is finished and I have sent it to a targeted literary agent. If I don't hear back in a month, gonna send it to whoever I can find, Nothing to lose by trying. Right?

The first chapter is 57 minutes long. If ...you like, send me an email and I'll link you to it. If that not's your thing, I completely understand. Don't worry about hurting my feelings

How is your music these days?

Heck yeah, send me a link. Love to check it out.

Music-wise, still doing the same sort of stuff I always have. I lost my son couple years ago, had just moved back to NC from SC when that happened. I went solo sailing (well, me and the dog) and lived on board for a year after that on the east coast. Wrote a new record during that, "A Sailors Waltz". I came home and not long after, my dog Gidget, the one you met, the one on the cover of "Good Dogs.." was killed, struck by a car. So that sort of set a whole other series of events in motion. I ended up with this seasonal ranch gig for a lady that owns a ranch here in east Oregon and another one on Oahu. We shut down here in two weeks and go to Oahu until May.

So yeah... I still do the same stuff for music. If you listen to the tracks I posted here, they are the same deal, just me setting my life to music really. Still not my favorite thing to try and write someone else story. More fun to live my own, then write about it.

On the bright side... remember the guy that used to criticize me for going after BMI for my "nickels"? I have collected a whole lot of nickels since then. I think a few people have done OK collecting nickels from BMI since then. I just wonder if that guy has ever found the "diamond" he said he was looking for while I was "wasting my time" collecting nickels.

I'm very sorry about your son. Also sorry about the dog. Clearly, that was a trying time.

On the lighter side, I'm glad you made BMI give you what was due and the Oregon/Hawaii thing sounds like a pretty good ride.

Pm me your email.

Aloha.

Hey, Martin,

I just posted the link to this song in the Telethon Thread. The theme is: "Songs I would have never heard if not for the JPF Forums"...

Hope you don't mind:-)

Enjoyed this. I see you're working on an audiobook format. I could also see this being staged as a musical.

Hi Martin:

Now, "The going gets tough"... and eventually you will feel the "weight of the world" is stepping on you while you struggle to get this completed. Always take some time away from this labor of love to refresh and replenish your creative juices.

I suppose that's what I enjoy so much about creating songs. 1. Idea... 2. Lyric... 3. Melody... 4. Recording... 5. Tear it all up and start again... 6. Eventually muddle through... 7. Find that bottle of Black Jack and drown your sorrows... LOL!

Sometimes, not necessarily in that order. Heck, lately... step 7 seems more attractive all the time.

Wishing you tons of success, my friend. ----Dave

Martin,

This is a terrific listen. Interesting first note to the last. Excellent vocals. Excellent production - tasty.

Nice job by both you and Mike.

Really enjoyed listening.

I like every song that you do Floyd. Your opinion is weighty in my world.

Hi Martin (& Mike),

I couldn’t find the lyrics in Lyric 3...so I’m going to type as I listen...lol...I think this is very well-told with a mixture of images and story. The chorus is really a catchy staccato with “I miss the mountain air...” and I like how it rotates to “You begged me to forgive...etc...” Heartbreaking really, not only in sentiment but in the way it builds emotionally and musically. Great vocals, harmonies and I enjoyed the combo of talking bits.

The music, melody and production are all so well done. Sounds like a fun project! I wish you all the best with it! smile

Kristi

We don’t use the word often but this is epic!

Epic in sound and overall scope. The word engaging also comes to mind as we enjoyed back to back listens.

And we enjoyed the backstory.

Kudos to both of you.

I dont think that I will ever be involved in anything epic but I appreciate you for saying so.

Thanks folks,

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
