Lol, this one has gone through many incarnations, I never really settled in on THE lyric or THE melody, although people( all 9 of them) seem to like it,

But turns out a buddy who makes a financial podcast, likes the music, and wants to use it on his podcast, maybe with me voicing over an intro until he begins the shiw.

Hey, never throw out a song. It could earn you several dollars!

Nice work. Vocals, write, arrangement...everything.

The mix sounds spot on the monitors.

Kudos!

I was interested to see your "material" posted and was impressed with every aspect. Bud said everything I had planned to say... and Bud knows of what he speaks! Thanks for sharing that with us... and I agree, the things we create (no matter how insignificant they may seem to us at that moment) should never be discarded. If nothing else, they provide us a "point of reference" to the progress we make... or the lack of it. Music... and all the elements associated with it (including lyrics if it happens to be a song) reflect an ever-changing art-form. ----Dave

fd,

An enjoyable listen. A lot of nice pop melody things happening throughout that keep it interesting. A nice write.

The staccato guitar on one side and the strum on the other is a nice balance.

I like it.

Mike, Janice and Bud, Dave, Floyd, Steady Eddie, thanks for listening and the comments.

It was one of the few recordings that I was ever satisfied with, it just mixed well, and worked. I used magix software to record, I like the traditional eq knobs on that software, I find it easier to mix that way,

The bass was pretty bad sounding, it was a midi font bass, but I managed to eq it and compress to decency.

Yeah, I spent many hours mixing it, and I was happy with a recording for a change, thanks for all the positive feedback. Funny how some songs come out good and others don't.

Fdemetrio,

This is a cool, slick listen. Love the guitar work—an ear worm that keeps pulling at you, and the hook on those “high and low’ harmonies are very sweet. Got a nice 80s feel to this, but fresh and relevant. Loved this. Well done!

Best regards,

Deej

I like the overall vibe here.
Feels a bit like a Sting .. Bono mash up... in a very cool vibrant sense.
Great energy in your performance, just draws you in from the jump.

Excellent work

Thanks Nelson, I don't think I started out thinking I''d write an 80's piece, it just worked out that way., lol

Sting and Bono certainly works for me. Thanks for listening and commenting

Good one.
Not too overproduced which is unusual in pop.

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'm not capable of over producing anything, lol, but not interested in doing so anyway. Thanks for listening.

Travis, I didn't post the lyrics, one, cause I may be using the track only, and two, I never really settled in on it, I improvised about 80 % of it as I was recording, didn't even write them down. But I can write them if you want, might be interesting to see how the structure played out. I know I was going for whole vowels at the end of each line. It's much different writing to a track

A Daydream Night

That movie still runs through my brain
The one where everybody goes insane
The feel good part where no one feels no pain
And I go, High and Low
I don't know, where I go
But it's somewhere slow....

And it don't have a name
But it's thunder road and born to run like fame
Girl look at me cause two can play this game
Yeah let's go, High and Low
I don't know, where we'll go
We'll put on a show

If seein is believin
Then we're doing something right
That dress you'll be wearin's lookin out of sight
Let's have a daydream night

Hey Gina,
I know it's been one tough week
People Bitchin, phone stuck to your cheek
And where's the thanks
That raise been lookin bleak
Yeah let's go, High and Low
I don't know, where we'll go
We'll put on a show

If seein is believin
Then we're doing something right
That dress you'll be wearin's lookin out of sight
Let's have a daydream night

That is catchy!

Nice Springsteen reference - makes me think these are like the characters in Born to Run - a few years further down the road. smile

Love the harmonies and the mix. Nice vocal too - you really sell that high note at the end!

Ricki, Colin, Scott, nice to impress some good writers like yourselves.

I actually think this is a B side, need a smash A side to compliment!

Have a few of those, recording it right is the tough part.
