Hi all. Here's a new single of mine, released today. I hope you enjoy it. smile

Song link here: The Devil You Know

LYRICS:

Iíve got the devil in my ear
He knows all my fears
With all the madness he shares
You can get lost in there
Yeah, thatís why heís here

Thereís a devil way up high
Youíll get sold all his lies
Take a chance, roll the dice
Feel the warmth of his fire
Well, donít it feel nice

Itís the devil you know
Not the one that you donít
Thatíll keep you far from home
Holding on in the night
To your prayers and your hopes
Like a dog that wonít let go of a bone

Iíve fought the devil all my life
Itís left me scarred inside
But every day, every night
Iíll be up for the fight
I've gotta find that light

'cause itís the devil you know
Not the one that you donít
Thatíll keep you far from home
Holding on in the night
To our prayers and our hopes
Like dogs that wonít let go of a bone

Itís the devil you know
Yeah, the devil you know
Oh, the devil you know
Yeah, the devil you know
Itís just the devil you know

Sorry, Phil:

I liked the lyric but Spotify would not let me listen without signing up... and I'm not going there! Do you have a free and unencumbered "work-around" so I can hear your work?

Regrets, ---Dave

"The Devil You Know" ©2019 Philip Marino

(I don't think these long Notes at the ends of Lines work right. I think the words would work better if those Notes were shorter, more conversational. I think some Lines sound 'halting' waiting for a cue of where to begin so you can do the long Notes at the end. The more direct delivery in the Chorus seems to work well.)

Iíve got the devil in my ear (my, Singer-Character, First Person)
He knows all my fears (my)
With all the madness he shares
You can get lost in there (you. Maybe say 'I can get lost in there'?)
Yeah, thatís why heís here
(Saying 'you' shifts it to the Singer-Character advising others, philosophically. I wonder if it would be better if he's talking to himself.)

Thereís a devil way up high
Youíll get sold all his lies (I've been sold all his lies)
Take a chance, roll the dice
Feel the warmth of his fire (This Line seems off the beat, the cadence.)
Well, donít it feel nice

(Consider flipping the Lines in the Chorus. The 'far from home' Line seems a more strategic concept than the Rhyme-Word bone'.)

Holding on in the night
To your prayers and your hopes (your)
Like a dog that wonít let go of a bone
Itís the devil you know
Not the one that you donít (you)
Thatíll keep you far from home (you)
(Repeat THE Hook/title to end: "It's The Devil You Know". I think making the title the last Line left ringing in their ears could make it more memorable.)

(This Verse is all the Singer-Character, telling his experience, my, me, I'll, I've, not advising others philosophically.)
Iíve fought the devil all my life
Itís left me scarred inside
But every day, every night
Iíll be up for the fight
I've gotta find that light

(Another idea: The Devil I Know'.)
Holding on in the night
To my prayers and my hopes
Like a dog that wonít let go of a bone
It's The Devil I Know
Not the one that I don't
That's keepin' me so far from home)
It's The Devil I Know

Itís The Devil I Know
Yeah, The Devil I know
Oh, The Devil I know
Yeah, The Devil You Know
Itís just The Devil I Know


There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com

Thanks, Phil:

For going to all that trouble for me. Enjoyed my listen. The production is good and you have great vocal quality in your voice. Best of luck in all your musical endeavors.

Cheers, ----Dave

Phil,

Not sure if you are looking for crits, as you mentioned "here's my new single," which sort of implies, "finished but have a listen." I absolutely love this vibe in general/melody/vocal tone/acoustic guitar track! I think you have a lot of potential with this song. I did get Gary's constructive crits and share some of those thoughts should you want to take the song back into production. IMO, a combination of tweaked pausing and holding fewer notes as long will allow the verses stand out better on their own and improve prosody in a few areas--those were my thoughts before reading Gary's comments.

But more importantly......you have a great canvas here with a sweet production blueprint--all sounds are sounding fantastic together--a very nice write indeed!
