Enjoyed listening to this song! Not a fault to be found in my opinion. Also appreciated the links to Demo Singer. Been looking for just that service also. And as for the cost, it's pretty reasonable considering what most demo services in Nashville are priced at nowadays.

Noel,

This is a big time song with an over the top performance.

I am surprised we are not hearing this on the radio.

I love everything about it.

Later,

Hi Danny,

Thank you! Positive feedback is always welcome. I knew when I wrote this song that it would be unlikely that anyone would be interested in it because it's a waltz. Songwriting is my hobby and, at the end of the day, I'm not really fussed if my songs become known or not. I'll just keep on plodding along and enjoying myself come what may.

All the best,
Noel

Noel,

I'm really late to the party on this one. Been living in the studio so I haven't listened to much. Beautiful changes. Excellent song!



Regards,


Bob

Noel,

to save time I plan to order a rubber stamp that says "WOW, Another fantastic song, Noel!"

I've noticed that some of my favorite songwriters on Song Ramp routinely employ pros to help them make demos. Apparently that can make the difference between actually getting listened to, or not. People looking for "the Nashville sound" seem to be anal retentive about not deviating from the formula (which rarely includes an Aussie accent)

On the other hand, when submitting your songs in the UK, Australia or New Zealand, the Nashville singer may be a liability.

Selling songs involves wearing a lot of hats... lyric writing, the ability to record catchy music and then mix and master it... and finally the marketing of it. I'd say you've done a great job of learning every aspect of this business. I expect that you will reap the rewards of your diligence

Thanks for your willingness to share your knowledge on the forum.

Hi Pat,

Just to set the record straight, I have lots and lots of crap songs. Unlike Dylan, "Noel96, The Early Years", would have people heading for the mute button faster than a flash of lightning. Pat Pattison once said at seminar that 90% of Dylan's work is not his best 10%. I'm a GREAT subscriber to that thought

Steve Seskin, who has a number of Number One hits to his name, always gets others to record demos of his songs even though he's a very competent performer himself (have a listen to him here). Steve says that the interpretation that other professional singers bring to his songs adds something that he cannot.

As for being successful ... I'm too lazy for that to happen! That's why it's lucky that songwriting is just a hobby for me.

Thank you for once again visiting one of my songs and starting my day with a smile.

All the best,
Noel

That goes for every songwriter out there, no one starts out writing hits, its like journey and evolution, we all peak at different times maybe your time is now. If you have a substantial body of works with songs equal to this (or better) then your in with a chance, you have to work on the basis that out of three great songs you write one might be a hit and that's if you have very good industry connections on top.

I am not sure about the waltz thing in modern pop but I will assume that country music is your thing and so Nashville would have a place for this unless they've gone all pop/rock these days.

Best Wishes

Darren

Noel,
Nice song and arrangement. I'm not sure waltzes are going out of fashion. They do seem to be few and far between. But the ones that hit really seem to have staying power as time goes on. Here's hoping that your's "Hits."

Hmmm... I didn't realize y'all "finalized" your songs before posting here. I've just been posting rough/dry mixes. I guess that explains some things.

I definately appreciated the phrasing and the waltz tempo... delicious.

Hi Patrick,

I'm with you, I like waltzes too. There's something very hypnotic and relaxing about good waltz. I guess Strauss managed to prove this very successfully! Thank you for taking time out of your day to have a listen and to comment. I appreciate it. Whether or not my song 'hits', at least I can say I have had some fun with BIAB getting done

All the best,
Noel

Hi Don,

Thank you! You're the first person EVER to use the word delicious as a comment on one of my songs. It's a very visual adjective. I like it

Not all songs that are posted here are finalized. They vary from rough drafts to polished demos. That being said, there is a bit of a leaning in the posts towards getting a song as polished sounding as a person knows how. It's a great little community here and very supportive.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Guitarhacker,

Muchas gracias for having a listen! I'm glad that you didn't mind the waltz either. It's a pity it's not a popular time signature. Oh well, it will come back one day

All the best,
Noel
