  1. Everyday Moments

    Another great song by Patty Lakamp. The link to the finished song is in the Song Critique section of this forum. Thanks for looking. Moptop Everyday Moments Patty Lakamp © Copyright 2017 I lost my mother years ago But she was here today Standing right beside me As I put the towels away It shook me for a second, but I enjoyed the memory Just that simple moment brought my mother back to me Chorus: Everyday moments The ones we replay Everyday moments Carry Love’s DNA She lives inside my heart now A sad but pleasant ache Her notes on the recipe When I make her favorite cake Chorus: Everyday moments The ones we replay Everyday moments Carry Love’s DNA Bridge: I used to think memories had to be planned A party or fancy affair But the best ones of all just happen In the everyday moments we share Chorus: Everyday moments The ones we replay Everyday moments Carry Love’s DNA On days I long to turn back time I sit in her favorite chair And reflect on everyday moments She and I have shared Chorus: Everyday moments The ones we replay Everyday moments Carry Love’s DNA

  6. I Still Think Of Her

    Here is another great song by Patty Lakamp with a little help from Moptop. Let us know what your thoughts are. Thanks for listening! . ….. . Still Think of Her V1 Floating in fog between sleep and awake I caught a glimpse of my first girlfriend Kate I’m crazy in love with the girl by my side But when memories hit me, I go for a ride V2 Kate and her freckles that summer in Maine I explored all I could of her lovely terrain Got a ring on my finger and I’m playin’ it straight But sometimes out of nowhere, I still think of Kate Chorus: I was lucky in love and I found a great wife She’s the one that I want for the rest of my life But I still have my past and that one special girl And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her V3 Innocent sweethearts, just barely sixteen A faded old rowboat was our limousine She kissed me and called me her private chauffeur Sometimes out of nowhere, I still think of her Chorus: I was lucky in love and I found a great wife She’s the one that I want for the rest of my life But I still have my past and that one special girl sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her Am7 G Am7 G Am7 G C D Dsus4 D Bridge: nights I’m awake it’s quarter to three I lie there reflecting on my history I find myself wondering, hopefully If somewhere, sometimes she thinks of me? Chorus: I was lucky in love and I found a great wife She’s the one that I want for the rest of my life But I still have my past and that one special girl And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her Yes, I still have my past and that one special girl And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her Patty Lakamp © Copyright 2017

  11. Night Stripper demo with vocals

  12. Night Stripper demo with vocals

    and I knew that. I never thought you were being demeaning or disrespectful at all. I took it as constructive criticism for sure. I was just thanking you for that because I have been on some other forums where board members were ........not so nice, if you understand what I mean here. I guess you have to know me and my off color old guy humor to know where I come up with some of this stuff. The verses are all done...in reverse. Day as oppose to Night, Got a good reason as oppose to there's NO good reason, she's a big teaser she takes me half the way there as opposed to she's NO teaser she takes me All the way there. Stupid, campy, yeah, very much,...but FUN, light hearted, and playful. And when you add in that the guy is really sweating on what his folks are going to think just adds to the goofiness of the whole song. take care, moptop
  13. Night Stripper demo with vocals

    Here is a link to a better mix. See it still sounds too distant. Yes It does parody Day Tripper but in a reverse sort of way. It's also a spoof on the "Big Hair Bands" of the 80's, hence all the delay and reverb. I guess you could compare it to The Beatles Day Tripper but if that is all your going to do then there's no way I can win. It's just a song about a guy who is dating a great woman that happens to be a stripper and he's wondering how he is going to tell his folks what she does for a living. You can read what ever you want into it but it's nothing more than that. It's just my way of pushing the envelope a bit. Thanks very much for your comments. I do appreciate them and glad you respect me enough to tell me your true thoughts. that's how we learn!
  14. Night Stripper demo with some vocals. Not a finished product yet but I think you'll get the idea I was going for listening. Take care, moptop
  15. Girl Don't Do It by Patty Lakamp

    I want to thank everyone for all their great suggestions and comments but please keep in mind that this is only a demo. This is too good of a song not to see the light of day and I recorded this so Patty and I could get an idea of how the lyrics and melody would flow and sound. It is still a work in progress. I very much appreciate the nice comments on my vocals, you are all too kind. Obviously this is not a song for a male and hopefully we can find a female vocalist who can do it more justice that I can. take all all Moptop
