  1. Hi Justin, I absolutely love this song...beautiful vocals, lovely guitar, and really sweet lyrics I've listen to the youtube version, and the one on here, and I love them both. I don't know if your final mix is available, because it says "ERROR...a mix update had been removed" I think this is a stellar bit of song writing, and I think the female vocals fit perfectly in the chorus, because it seems to me, he's remembering when she was there, and the haunting female vocals, add to that memory...IMHO anyway This is a song that I will listen to often. Thanks for sharing
  2. Well I must say, this is really usual, which I like It evoked quite a mix of emotions, one of which reminded me of watching a movie like 'The Omen', so it felt a little scary Other parts reminded me of a SF movie, but generally, it made me feel a little uneasy I guess, just not being used to the 13 note scale, but I quite liked it, because I kept going back for another listen
  3. Hi Starise, I wasn't hearing anything in particular...I was just kinda curious as to what you had lyrically, but the more i listen to it, the more I like it just as it is
  4. I'm so glad I stumbled across this one Starise, and I'm so happy to see you posting again. This song is very beautiful, and so soothing, and uplifting at the same time It stands on its own perfectly, but since you mentioned lyrics, I'm now curious as to what it would sound like, with them
  5. Thanks so much JH, and I hope you didn't ruin your computer with the coffee spill This is kind of a true story, except for the murder at the end, so I guess I have a hard time leaving anything out, which is why it's so long, but I guess I don't need to have the intro bit, although it's sets it up, for the 'external commenters' I was doing all the voices, including the low ones, so it was difficult to get them in perfect pitch, cause I dropped the key a few times I think I'll leave the 'panties and bra verse' up to your own interpretation. I'm glad you got a kick out of it, even though it was a little long
  6. thanks for listening, Max and I'm glad you liked the song. I like the 'Dylan like' reference Maybe you're right about dropping the 'so'...I'll give it a try
  7. Thanks Jim. You could be right about getting to the murder sooner, but it was kind of ad-libed as I went along. Also, I felt that I needed to set it up really well before the murder I guess you're right about the confusion of who's telling the story...I wanted Kate to tell the story, but with comments thrown in from the external narrator, but maybe it doesn't quite work Your opinion means a lot, so thanks again.
  8. Thank you for your very kind review Matthew. I had a lot of fun doing that part at 3:13, so I'm glad you liked it
  9. Hi all, Sorry I've been haven't been active on this forum for so long, but I've been dealing with some health issues This is a rather poor attempt at writing a bizarre country song with a's suppose to be humorous, and hopefully somewhat entertaining I definitely don't have the voice for country, so I've doubled tracked the vocals I know it's on the long side, but does it keep your interest till the end? I've had a hard time mixing/producing this, so if there's anything anyone hears that isn't quite right, please let me know So friends lend me an ear, cause your about to hear The ballad of Kate and Jim. No he couldn’t stop cheat’n, so she could never win I thought I’d married a saint; my white knight had finally arrived But when he left me with his baby, I began to realize He was just a man in a silver coat, and not much of one at that Cause he could never be faithful; but I always took him back (Ya, she always took him back: just one more time she say; This will be your last chance) While I was in, having his baby; he was out, fooling around With a pretty young lady living high on the town… Secret picnics, on the beach; and then they’d wine and dine I was home with our newborn; so I didn’t read the signs (No she didn’t read the signs) Oh he could be so sweet, and very charming too I believed his lies; I knew, I knew his love was true I was naïve and foolish; my heart was very young Until one day, he exposed himself, with a slip of his lying tongue He had the eyes of an angel…he cheated like the devil The tongue of a serpent… he cheated like the devil And his heart lay buried in his jeans I thought I’d married a saint; my white knight had finally arrived But when he left me with his baby, I began to realize He was just a man in a silver coat, and not much of one at that But that was his last chance; I swore I’d never take him back (She swore she’d never take him back: that was his last and final chance) But then he showed up on my doorstep, with flowers in his hand He said, I’m so sorry babe; I wasn’t much of a man But don’t you worry honey; you’re the only one for me I can change; you just wait and see; We’re gonna be happy; a happy family (This is the last time baby) So he moved us to the big city, to start a brand new life He swore she was gone for good; he’d be faithful to his wife But then it all started again, and I couldn’t ignore the signs But he denied it over and over; I was going, out of my mind She could read the signs this time She found her bra in his pocket Her panties in his jeans And her name, tattooed right on his buttocks She was going, out of her mind, With a baby on her hip, and another on the way Where would she do; where would she stay? What was she going to do? She decided, she’d have to kill her, kill her in cold blood (a crime of passion, said the judge) Now she’s finally free, serving time behind bars While he’s home looking after, the kids; Now ain’t that just a cruel, cruel twist?
  10. WOW, Kevin! this has got that epic ballad vibe to it. The vocals are superb, as is the production! The instrumentation is amazing! I too, will listen to this one often
  11. I really quite liked this track as it is, but I think it would sound even better a little slower, and with a some more production to fill it out. The lyrics are really interesting and let my imagination run wild. I'll be curious to see where you take this
  12. Hi Chase and welcome to this forum. I have to agree with the other reviews. I think this is an excellent song on all counts. The subject matter is a difficult one to write about, but I think you've done an amazing job with the lyrics, and they come across very honestly. Your guitar playing is fantastic and I hope to hear more songs from you.
  13. I can't remember if I posted this Christmas song last year, but this is the perfect thread for it now. Anyway, I hope it puts a smile on your face Cheers! It's the most wonderful time of the year! Xmas, is coming, once again But Xmas Cards are such an expense So I dig out the old ones, so I can resend And hope I don’t, offend any friends Xmas carols, are playing in the malls Halloweens not even over; we’re barely in fall But decorations up, on every wall By Xmas time, I’ll be sick of it all Snow is falling, but I always get stuck Which pisses me off; I’m such a schmuck Then it turns to rain, and then into muck What a mess; it really sucks It’s Black Friday! You sleep on the street, the night before So you’re first in line, when they open the doors Sales, sales! Ya, a shoppers dream Pushing and shoving and lots of screams Snatching toys from kid s hands There are no rules in BF’s land Its time to party’s with lots of cheer Ya, I get drunk, on to much beer I embarrass myself, every year But it’s tradition, just to be clear It’s the most, wonderful time of the year, oh ya The kids are all sitting, on Santa’s knee They’re so wide eyed, they really believe But some get scared, and start to scream When they pee on Santa, it’s an ugly scene It’s my worst nightmare! Xmas eve’s come at warp speed I’m not ready! I still got gifts to get I don’t even have the turkey fixings yet We don’t have a tree; the decorations aren’t up; This really, really sucks! We’re really desperate, we gotta find a tree We drive around looking very frantically We finally see one on the side of the street It’s not perfect, but least it was free The children are nestled all snug in there beds But the parents are stressed, right our of their heads Cause they’ll be wrapping gifts, well into the night No they won’t get to bed, before daylight! It’s Xmas morning! The kids are up at the crack of dawn Yelling and screaming cause Santa’s come Paper and bows; flying everywhere Chaos prevails, but the parents don’t care They’re barely awake, for goodness sake! Xmas magic’s in the air Turkey smells are everywhere Everybody’s feeling fine…so divine...we just wanna be…. It's the most wonderful time of the year!
  14. Thanks so much for all the kind and helpful comments guys And thanks Garry, for such a detailed analysis. I really appreciate the time you put into listening, with such expertise To be honest, this is probably one of the very first songs I ever wrote, and I was not aware of the rules of rhyme, at the time But maybe I should go back to the drawing board, because you're probably right When we've performed this song live, we've always had such a good response, that I assumed it was OK as is. But even if the song is unstable, at least our relationship is
