Hi, friends !:))


I know I should not have posted this version
as I am suffering from a bout of flu and I
know I can´t do my best on the falsetto but,
as I am flying to Spain to rumble on the beaches
over there I decided to post this surf tune !:))

Pat wanted me to come up with another and
this is what I could do for the moment !:))

This is the rewritten tune:

http://app.box.com/s/ibc5acy6gifiii6y3kt7u78lmfe8ov3t

http://soundcloud.com/dani-lindroos/my-surfin-lady

Recorded with Mixcraft 7 with Stagg mic.

The Style used is 12_8 SURF.STY 12_8 Surf-Slow 12/8

The instros used are:

Bass: 36 Fretless El Bass
Guitar 1: 28 Clean El Guit
Drums are Realdrums = Nashville 128/02 Side Stick Snare
Guitar 2: 22 Jazz El Guitar
Voice Oohs: 54 Voice OOhs
Soloist: Guitar El Rhytm Pop 16 ths Arp

And the lyrics are as follows:

My Surfin´Lady (Music & Words by Norman Wibe)

If you´d only let me be your one and only love I´d be you true
If you´d only let me hold you in my arms again I´d love you, only you
I feel so down, when you´re not around
I feel so blue, and you know that it´s true
yes you do,
so, let´s go
to a place,
far away, …...babe, there I´d

give my heart to you and promise I´d be yours forever, ever more,
there we´ll fly together for the rest of our days, yeah to that shore, faraway shore
and I´d feel fine
when I know you are mine
there we´ll stay
surfin´all day
in the sun, on the sea

There,
beneath the deep blue sky
we´ll be together day and night
with all that´s in my might
I will take you so high,so high

and I´ll give my heart to you and promise I´d be yours forever, ever more,
there we´ll fly together for the rest of our days, yeah to that shore, faraway shore
and I´d feel fine
when I know you are mine
there we´ll stay
surfin´all day…..and,

when you let me hold you in my arms again, you´ll know that I love you
I love you !

Hi, guys have a most pleasant
surfing season !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hey Dani!
So glad you came back with another Beach Boys style song before you leave for the Beach in Spain (I'm so jealous!)

Between you and Robb you're cornering the market for songs from this era! I had forgotten how much I enjoy these songs! You credit me with being the one who talked you into this, but I think you're having the same effect on me! I'm already talking to a forum guru about a collaboration on a song from this era!

I love how you mimic the chord progressions and innocent lyrical themes from this period, when phrases like "Promise I'd be yours forever more" sounded more like the expression of an ideal than a cliche.

I could tell that there were more than 2 vocal parts, but on my system everything below the two highest ones got lost in the shuffle. Or maybe it was that lush 60s reverb... ;-)

Anyway.. THANKS for coming back for an encore before exiting the stage for your beach holiday! I hope that while you sit on the beach you'll have a pencil and pad in hand, writing more of these beach inspired love songs!

From the barbershop to the beach...a Dani odyssey!!

sing like that -- flu or not.

So cool!!!

We love it...

Hi, Pat !:))

Thank you Pat for your most kind words !:))
Yes, Pat, I am a child of that golden era
when they made heavenly music and the whole
musical world exploded !:))

Guess they would say that I´m old fashioned
and why wouldn´t I be ? I like the music
that rode along with me since childhood !

If there´ll be time I promise to come up later
with a new surf tune after the Spain session !
I´ll be there from the 27 th of april to the 11 th of May
and my grown up kids will stay in my flat taking
care of my two cats !:))

I wish you all the best with your intended tune
from that glorious era and with the eventual collaboration !:))

Take Care

Cheers
Dani

this song somehow reminds me a little bit of I'm Mandy fly me of 10CC.
which will have something to do with the smooth backing vocals

good work Dani!

Hi Dani,

sorry about your flu. But I can't hear it.
With this one you really caught the sound of the
era. Beautiful harmonies.
The beginning of the verses remind me of a song I can't
remember. Please help, anybody. It drives me crazy.

Dear Janice & Bud !

I am humble enough but my
reference to my flu had to
do with my shortcomings on
the falsettos which can be
clearly heard !:))

I do thank you both so much
for your most kind comments !:))

Cheers
Dani

Thank you Trygve !:))

I am afraid that it may sound
like a thousand other tunes
with similar types of chord-progressions
but without having any specific in mind
I tried to make one following my own
melody line but I can have missed
the point ! I just wanted to write
a tune I´d love to sing in many voices !


Cheers
Dani

Hi, Trevor !:))

I thank you so much for
your encouraging and kind words !
I was not able to do what I really
wanted referring to my restrictions
on the falsettos and the tune may
sound like a thousand other ones
from that era !:))
I so dig the Beach Boys type music
i.e. surf music !


Cheers
Dani

Hi, Rob & Anne-Marie !

Thank you both for your most
kind words !:))
This tune will undoubtedly sound
like a thousand other tunes
of the surf era and that is no
wonder as the progressions remind
you of so many other tunes !

The point is that I wanted to
write a song that I would love
to sing and I can only hope that
it does not remind anyone too much
of any particular song. At least
I did not have any in mind writing it
just loved the chord progressions !

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Greg !:))

We are going down to Spain next week
naturally not to surf, that is just
wishful lyrics (chuckle)!!!

I had to write something that
I could perform and post for the
forum members as i cannot do
any covers ! When I wrote this
tune I did not have any specific
tune in mind but there must be
lots of tunes with similar or close
to similar chord progressions as
that was the way of that golden era
we´ve left behind !

I do thank you Greg for your
most kind words !

Cheers
Dani

Dear friend !

I would like to help you
so that you would not need
to become crazy. I can tell
you, though, that I did not have
any specific tune in mind when I wrote
this ! I am perfectly sure that you
will find thousands of tunes from that
era with similar or close to similar
type of chord progressions as that was
the way of the day !:))

I did write this just to be able to
perform and post something that was´nt
a cover and that I´d love to do !

It was more or less an experiment on
what kind of sounds I could improvise
on a nice melody as I am a very big fan
of surf music in general and Brian Wilson´s music
in particular !

I do thank you so much for your
most kind words and you know that
I had you in mind when trying to
fix some nice harmonies !

Hope you´ll find that tune that will
hinder you from going crazy soon !:))



Cheers
Dani

Hi, Lawrence !:))


Thank you for your most kind words!
I am glad that you liked the song as
I know that you also dig sweet harmonies
(in this case maybe not perfect, but
nonetheless)

Cheers

It's not the chordprogression, it's that specific melody:





I hope that somebody can help me.

Dani!!!

WOW!

I love this!

A little bit "Girls On The Beach". A little bit "Surfer Girl". A little "God Only Knows".... Classic!

Awesome chord changes. Beautiful harmonies.

Whatever made this happen... keep it up!!!

Dang!

Dear friend !

Maybe you could try
some of the apps where
you can get the name of
a tune by playing it
for your telephone ?
