Great song, good mix. Fun Country tune. My only comment is there is a bit too much reverb on your vocals. You might try panning the reverb far right or left so you dont hear it as prevalent but it smooths out. I really like the drum mix.

ROG - Thanks for the listen... actually, I thought this one might have a few flaws in it... I had this sitting for a while and re-mixed it right before posting it - and I started experimenting with the vocal track - I'm "looking for something" that I haven't found yet - and this ended up "a bit different"... too much reverb - which Elliott pinged... so I need to look at it some..

Joanne - thanks for the spin...

Josie - I like the "crest of the hill" best, myself... thanks..

Elliot - appreciate you stopping by. Yeah.. the verb is a bit much. I was trying something new and the reverb was printed on the vocal track - so when I processed it further, it accentuated the reverb...

eric - thanks for the listen.

Top notch lyric, melody, vocals, RT choice, arrangement and mix. Major studio sound all the way. This is what we should be hearing on "country" radio.

This will become my reference song for mixing...not that I'll get there but I can dream. Everything sits perfectly in the mix -- yet it also stands out on its own. How the heck do you do that?? And do it so consistently?? I know the tips and the tricks....but there is something here that eludes my abilities. Just being able to consistently write songs like this would a major accomplishment but to sing them this way and mix and master your own arrangements. Come on.....

Hey Floyd,

I was in the process of writing a country tune called Man with a Blindfold that carries some of the sentiments of your song. And, now that I've heard it, Blindfold lies crumpled in the trash where it belongs.

I have been out of commission for several weeks, and my time is very short today, but when I saw your song post, I had to listen. I'm sure glad I did. You know I am a fan of your work, and this one is just another good one to add the the list! Great chorus. Love the turn of the words, inside out.

Really enjoyed it!

Hey floyd,

I've been listening to "Inside Out" just about every time I wander around Users Showcase. Twenty or so listens later, it's still sounds fresh and makes me smile. The only difference is that I can now sing a long with you, American accent and all smile

So, what do I like ...

1. Introduction
The 4/4 bar followed by a 2/4 bar of drums alone is just great at setting the mood. Upbeat and happy, and the mixed time signatures throw the listener a little out of kilter because they are not what's expected. As you've show us many times in your songs, there's nothing quite like disrupting 'what's expected' to set the emotional tone.

2. Verses
I laughed out loud at "i salted my coffee, i sugared my eggs, now they're scrambled and a little too sweet". That's such a good image! What stood out to me most in the verses is how you used rhyme to close a section. By this, I mean that the first 4 lines of each verse is essentially a single thought and that thought cleanly closes when line 4 rhymes with line 2. Then lines 5 to 8 begin a new lyrical thought. While that second lyrical thought also closes equally strongly with rhyme, musically you leave the 8th line wide open so that it drives home into the chorus. Nice!

3. Chorus
That aaabba rhyme scheme is awesome! And the pay-off of twisting the interpretation of 'inside out' around, well, that's classic floyd jane creativity that's a signature in so many of your songs. In "Inside Out", it's also a terrific pay-off.

4. Writing
Melody, lyrics and chord progression are incredibly well matched.

5. Arrangement
When I listened from the perspective of arrangement, words that sprang to mind were "thoughtful", "oooo, that's clever", "great use of musical sweeteners and spices", "this could SHOULD be on the radio".

6. Performance
For me, the believability factor of these lyrics clocks in at 100%. The singer (as the song's main character) is incredibly easy to visualise and to feel empathy with. He's a really likeable person. The combination of melody, lyrics and your singing makes all this possible in such a professionally seamless way.

Ok ... it's back for another listen now ....

All the best,
