OK, here is my entry.....Lovely Mystery


https://soundcloud.com/oim-review-tracks/lovely-mystery-sept-2016-ttm-odc-smurf



The style used is _BADLAND.STY Badland Baritone Rockabilly - 100bpm A (F#m) from the Country Xtra PAK


I kept the main chord structure with some rearranging becasue I liked it. After setting everything to gen simply, I re-gen the tracks until I was happy, then exported the individual tracks out to the daw. and added guitars & vocals. Lyrics are below...

=====

Lovely Mystery J. Smerk 9-12-16


She likes holiday bustling, he likes serene
She likes being around crowds, he avoids the scene
She likes 5 course dinners, just a happy meal for me please

She likes to drive Cadillacs, he's happy with a truck
She likes board games, he likes to try his luck
She likes to hear the violin, while he plays the fiddle
(It's such a riddle)

Chorus 1

It's a mystery what drew these two together
And thru the years they have survived all kinds of weather
Kids & homes & family mess, with the memories that they bring
Of pain & loss & the joy, that makes their hearts sing

She likes to go shopping, for him its such a bore
She likes yachts & boating, he likes to row his own
She likes hand dipped ice cream, he takes the gallon home
(But I never eat alone)

Repeat Chorus 1

She likes to babble on, he says a word or two
She does 5 things at a time, he'll see one project thru
She dresses up the dog, while he cleans up the poo
(Or it gets on your shoe)

Chorus 2

It's a mystery what drew these two together
And thru the years they have survived all kinds of weather
But when the lights go down, these two people can agree
The differences are minor, to the love that's shared between


Enjoy! cool

Hey, I enjoyed this! The lyrics are well put together and the delivery spot on.
It kinda reminds me of REM in places.

Also liked the additional voice effect at the end of each verse sort of like a "thought bubble".

Cheers

Thanks receder!

I am working my way thru the entries and I have to say, there is some great talent on here! I always knew that there was, but it has been a few years since I have REALLY sat down & gave a lot of the tracks a good listen to.

Great job folks, ya all are some solid musicians!

I agree with Receder on the REM sound. I'm a big fan of REM.
So yes, like this song too!

Thanks once again folks! I have had a few folks say that I remind them of REM....I guess I need to go give them a good listen to.

And I THINK that I have made it thru all the entries.....and I can honestly say that I am happy that I am not the one that has to do the selection, there are some great tunes here!
