Latest from me. I'm not sure what genre this comes under. Every time I choose a genre, somebody says different. Pop ballad, maybe?
Comments welcome.

SHOW ME 2018 Vic Arnold
V1
Love's the finest of dimensions
It's a feeling you can't see
with the purest of intentions
More than ecstasy
The bone of contention
The road to redemption
Ch.
So show me ... with your heart
Lead me ... to your arms
Tell me ... with your lips
Let the love begin
V2
Never boring or conforming
Sets no life time for the shelf
Lands upon you without warning
Picks the moment for itself
Is it just illusion?
A passing thought? Confusion?
Ch.
So show me ... with your heart
Lead me ... to your arms
Tell me ... with your lips
Let the love begin
Inst.
Ch.
So show me ... with your heart
Lead me ... to your arms
Tell me ... with your lips
Let the love begin


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 Vic:

Genre wise... it feels somewhere between Folk and Country. Really enjoyed my listen. Well done.

Hi Vic

That is a fine pop love ballad to my ears but would be comfortable for a country artist too. Really evocative lyrics. You've created a nice arrangement. Your voice sounds good, and the harmonies in the chorus really step it up.

Vic,

Another terrific song, from lyric to vocal to production, with great underlying emotion. Well done and good luck with this one. it deserves a lot of listens.

All the best,

Very nice song Vic. Well played and produced. Perhaps go up in key for the last chorus to really build the dynamics. Very nice song.

Hey Vic,

Like I said in the other forum, sweet song, well written/performed. I could see Tom Petty doing this'n......well when he was around. I like the slow tempo, yet there's a feeling of "power" behind the music.

Genre? Maybe 60s pop ballad meets folk?
Nice sound though, a bit different from your usual leanings Vic but it works

Real smooth, great feel Vic. I'd say it's a good contender for the death metal sea shanty genre... smile

Yes, they don't make the death metal sea shanties like they used to anymore.

Those rhymes grabbed me from the get go.

We enjoyed the lyric, the vocal, the arrangement and the mix...all of it.

Nice!
