Sounds like something the Cars might have done back in the day. Which is good! I loved that band. Loved the line about the '57 tele smile

Fiddle was fun! Wasn't expecting that. And tasty fills throughout. Good song, well performed and produced, enjoyed the listen!

I really liked the lyrics, creative and could even be true!

Great delivery. I mean really great.

The fiddle solo was an unexpected surprise.


Many thanks for the listen and kind words.
That line was a teaser to see how many people knew which Bruce, but you obviously picked it up straight away! Cheers,
ROG.

Thanks, Scott. Please you liked it, including the fiddle which was a bit experimental!

The fiddle is really, really well done. It fits. (I would have preferred hearing you play lead smile - a loud one smile )

Excellent mix.

Enjoyed. Really catchy...

Hi Floyd.
Many thanks for the review - always value your comments.
Originally it was going to have a guitar solo, but it was hard to get a rock style to work well with that backing. Then I was listening to a Corrs album and thought, yeah a fiddle! If you're not familiar with the Corrs, you might find their stuff interesting. Maybe a loud guitar solo next time.
Cheers, ROG.

By the sound of this you clearly must be a Jeff Lynne fan. We are big ELO fans!
The fiddle came as a surprise, but works so well.
What else can we say, aside from the fact that we have just raised this post up a little ;-). A very cool song!

Rob & Anne-Marie

Hi Rob & Anne-Marie.
Many thanks for the listen - always like to read your comments.
Sorry, but if you were right about the guitar RT, that would mean I was playing the fiddle! The fiddle was the only thing which remained from the original Realband demo and it was a bit of an experiment. Fortunately, most people seem to have liked it.
Yes, I am a big fan of Jeff Lynne and ELO - obviously the influence is showing in this one.
Thanks again for the review.
Cheers, ROG.

I also heard Cars immediately. Great stuff!! The fiddle is interesting but not the way I would have gone. Production is stellar-IN YOUR FACE!! This is really a gem!!! Take care. Greg

Hi Tom. Many thanks for the listen and review.
The backing does sound as though it would take a guitar break and be fun to do, but I really struggled to get anything I liked. Sometimes that's just the way it is. I should probably have sent the track over to you! Anyway, the fiddle was a bit of fun and as you know, I don't like to take things too seriously.
So, thanks again for the kind words. Cheers,
ROG.

Thanks, Peter.
Yes, the fiddle was a surprise to me too. I generated the RT without really expecting it to work, but then couldn't find anything I liked better!
Cheers, ROG.

I couldn't say it any better!

All I can add is WOW this is outstanding. It caught my ear from beat one and kept until the end! The fiddle was a nice touch but I think your guitar might have been better-YMMV

This is a keeper.

Hi Mario.
Always pleased to get a review from you and many thanks for all the nice comments.
As I said to Tommy, I couldn't get into the guitar solo on this one - maybe next time.
Cheers, ROG.

Hi Kenny. Thanks for looking in on this one and pleased that you liked it. That fiddle RT is the business, isn't it. What did we do before RTs?
Cheers, ROG.

ROG,


Brevity is the soul of wit, so I'll be brief. This is fun! Clever, as well. Enjoyed it very much.


Regards,

Bob

And what a cool write...there are a ton of clever and fun lines...enough to just read through the lyric a few times to appreciate it all.

Janice is with her mother today...but I'm sending her a link NOW cause she's gonna love this tune!

Kudos on a super production that showcases all the great components of this tune....vocals, lyric, rhythm tracks and, yeah, the fiddle.

We look forward to more plays!

J&B

Hi there J&B.
Hey, thanks for all the positive feedback. I had a few problems putting this one together, not least with deciding on the fiddle solo instead of a guitar, so I'm really pleased that you liked it and thought it worked out OK.
Cheers, ROG.

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
