That Song Anthony Thaxton Music (c)

https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13725588

Well that song resonates with me
I feel a hope rising in me and thatís something
I havenít felt for a while
Ill give you props youíve touched a spot in me
ill admit it takes a lot these days
But that song makes me wanna smile

Itís funny what a word or two
wrapped around a few chords can do
That melody is begging me to sing along
the rhythm make me want to dance again
Im feeling every word you sing my friend
Get backup and take a chance again
Its easy to find myself in that song

In that song, the sun is always out
And those clouds aint nowhere to be found
And those rhymes give me reason to go on
See I been lost and thatís so easy to do
In this world become a wondering fool
That song helps me find my way back home

Really enjoyed the melody and vibe of the tune. You have written a song that every songwriter and song lover, for that matter, can relate to. As far as the production, maybe cut back on the reverb just a bit. Enjoyed it. Nice write.

No Mike does all the technical stuff. I'm simply the writer.But there's plenty of advice and help available in the forum.
Try posting on the general songwriters forum and you should get a good response
Cheers

Anthony,

This is a fun, cool, laid-back listen. Sure, maybe dial back on the reverb just a touch, but itís such an inviting vibe you have going on with this one. It really does have a sing along feel to itóitís got me bobbing my head along as I listen, which is a good sign for any song. Really well done tuneóenjoyed this a lot. Best of luck with this one.

Best regards,

Deej

Anthony,

I just feel compelled to give this tune a bump. Listened to this again and just really like it. The lyrics are brilliant in their simplicity and the song's bones are just "feel good". Truly, and with all due respect to the many talented folks on this board, this is one of the few songs on this board that I want, and do, sing along with. Great tune, sir.

Best regards,

Deej

Anthony,

I'm sitting here tapping my feet and typing in time while I listen to you. It's a very engaging song you've put together!

Those above lyrics describe everything about your song really, really well.

I enjoyed my listen smile

thanks Deej and Noel I appreciate your kind words ive been writing songs for a long time and it still amazes me how each song takes on its own personality and changes from creation thorough writing to the dynamics of the recording this is a good write for me it flowed out where I have to work on some songs very few tweak's on this lyric do either of you think it needs a bridge

Hi again Anthony.

I've just had another listen. I don't think it needs a bridge. Having the chorus repeat is great and it really encourages the listener to sing along with it. I found it really engaging just as it is.

All the best,
Noel
