Hi JPFrs,
New song from me this week. Its written for tv/film, so Ive tried to keep lyrics somewhat universal. See what you think.

Hold That Thought
©2019 M.Kolstad

Feels like a blue sky
Entering your mind
Endlessly open and free

Letís have it our way
Riding the air waves
It is so great just to be

Why donít we

Hold that thought
And keep it streaming
From our hearts into our dreams
Cause dreams wonít get caught
If we donít hold that thought

Floating the big tide
We will be allright
Happy to have what weíve got

Why donít we

Hold that thought
And keep it streaming
From our hearts into our dreams
Cause dreams wonít get caught
If we donít hold that thought

Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Why donít we

Hold that thought
And keep it streaming
From our hearts into our dreams
Cause dreams wonít get caught
If we donít hold that thought
No dreams wonít get caught
If we donít hold that thought

Great to hear another song post from you, Mr. K.

I'll be looking for the song in a "Blockbuster" Film or on TV. Enjoyed my listen and I'm wishing you the best.
Thanks for sharing. ----Dave

Thanks Dave,
There is always hope, but for now songwriting is just for my own amusement.

Appreciate the spin!

Hey K!

I like to think I can listen with a pretty critical ear when I try, and I'm having trouble thinking of any comments on room for improvement on this. From a performance/production standpoint, it's great. The structure perfectly suits the content, and the arrangement suits the overall sound and spirit of the song extremely well. The only thing I can think of is the lyrical content could pack a little more punch, but you've stated that you're intending the song to have a universal appeal, so this very well was an intentional choice.

To put it more concisely: excellent work!

Hope to hear more from you and best of luck in your licensing quest.

Thanks Adam, yeah lyrics are a bit on the light side, I know. I did write it to a brief, but didnt submit it. Appreciate the comments!

Kolstad,

This is terrificócould easily see this as a backing track to a romantic drama/comedy. Really easy on the ears . . . very chill. Nice vocal on this. Real pretty tune. Very nicely done.

Good luck with this . . . it deserves a lot of the attention and all the success it can bring.

All the best,

Deej

Thanks Deej and Calvin, appreciate the spin. I will have an updated version out in about a weeks time, with some harmonies on and a few edits.
