Sunny Day
© 2017 Kenny Leverett

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bluer sky
There’s no clouds here in our way
So many people pass us by
But you’re the only one that I see today

And if I can speak my mind
I can’t hide what’s inside
That you are my sunny day

I knew I was waiting
Waiting for someone
And so many times I wanted to just give up
I didn’t think I’d ever really find the one
But then you appeared and I knew real love

There’s no clouds here in our way
Now that you are here to stay
Girl you are my sunny day

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bluer sky

HI Kenny,

What we've enjoyed about your music recently is the variety in style. You have a real nice mix of laid back and high energy in this one. Your guitar work sounds great and your gritty voice gives this a pleasant but biting edge. As always, we enjoyed uit a bunch. Best to you.

Alan & Di

PS: Happy Friday to you, too!

Kenny,
Nice one! There`s a loose rocking feel to this that reminded me of post-Beatles McCartney and the happy vibe is complimented by those harmonies- love the whoops!
Very enjoyable.

Really nice rocker - great backing with a excellent strong vocal.
All came together very nicely.

Very cool sound on this, Kenny.

The guitars all work nicely together.

A powerful rock vocal. The woop is great! (seems some "breakup" with the harmonies on "sunny.." - though that might be an accumulation of "rasps").

You are on a tear. And always SO catchy. you have a real knack for that (the way Elvis Costello always did).

Kenny, Great rocker. Super vocal. I also thought the harmonies were distorted. I also loved the woop. Another really catchy write. Good job! Tom

Kenny,

Very nice rock song.
Well composed as always.
We do think however that the mix has slightly too much hi frequency in it.
But that's just a small nit wink

Very enjoyable.

Robert


Robert, I appreciate that, wow! McCartney (I wish)

I was trying to convey joy, thanks for noticing the whoops

I was happy that I wouldn't have to sing it again!

I think an upbeat, happy, simple love song is hard to write

maybe the hardest for me, so I really appreciate your comments

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."
(read the full thread here.)

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
