Recently, after I got rather boisterous during a discussion, my wife quietly told me "to chill".
...that I was getting a little "overbearing"
and then, said...
"Sometimes a little bit of you goes a long way"

Well, heck. There's a song.


A LITTLE BIT OF ME

i know sometimes i come on a little bit too strong
obsessive and overbearing some folks say
well since i fell in love with you those labels might belong
'cause a little bit of me
goes a long long way
   
   it'll go the distance, pass any test
   that little chunk of me deep in my chest
   when it comes to you my heart is like a runaway train
   it's the little bit of me
   that goes a long long way

come on baby try me maybe i'll surprise even you
i'll never slip, slack, slide, stumble or stray
my heart stands willing and able to prove it will stay true
it's the little bit of me
that goes a long long way
   
   it'll go the distance, pass any test
   that little chunk of me deep in my chest
   when it comes to you my heart is like a runaway train
   it's the little bit of me
   that goes a long long way

Floyd, buddy, friend, co-writer, humanitarian extraordinaire,

Let me see if I get this straight:

Your wife, glowering at you like a first lady on inauguration day, says:

"Floyd, you are so full of yourself, always bragging and boasting, making blowhard speeches, swaggering and preening and strutting like a rooster. A little bit of you goes a long way."

And you say:

"Thank you everybody, thank you, yes I know I am great, just fantastic, and I should write a song about that, that part about a little bit of me going a long way, because that is just so fantastic, so true, so true, because I am so long, so very, very long, you know everybody says it, and it's just fantastic, and when I write my song about myself it's going to say that, and be just fantastic, because no one goes longer than me, I promise you this, I promise you this."

??????

Just kidding, dude. Funny song.

But, I really want you to run for President. Really.

Yep, this song sounds like it came from our house!

Great vocals (as usual), great mix (as usual) and super lyrics.

This is one super song and a keeper.

Wow, you nailed this! Very, very catchy and just an overall example of strong songwriting. I loved the harmonies on this, and that kickin guitar solo at at around 1:45. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the radio among classic hits.

Great job on this - thanks so much for sharing smile

Floyd,
I like the way you turned your wife`s comment into a back-at-ya song!
This song has one of the catchiest choruses I`ve heard here and those Janice harmonies are mixed so we can hear how good she is.
Also that little vocal swoop you do on "little bit of me" is cool.
Excellent!

Robert

Well Floyd, first of all I hope you guys are still together laugh ?
Yeah, I know, the same goes for Rob from time to time.
I think it's a 'male musician' kind of thing wink

But the song, however, is very nice, not too overbearing.
Good backing vocals by Janice.

Once again Floyd, tight pro sound with flawless vocal performance! I like the way Janice switched from harmony to unison and then back to harmony in the chorus! Great job getting those guitars all tightly working together in the rhythm bed! Very catchy tune! Thanks, Torrey

Hi Floyd,

Liked it a bunch! A touch of the classic sound with lots of modern country music treatment. Janice's harmony os, as always, splendid. The girl can song! And that lead male vocal track is pretty danged good, too!

Yo9u always give us nothing but first class entertainment - just another example here. You set the bar pretty danged high fro the rest of us. Thanks for a super listen! Good stuff from beginning to end.

The harmonies really lift this already cool track.
My only crit would be the kick drum sounds a little too clicky.
Small nit though.
Cool.

Love the backtrack on this. Great vehicle for a very cool vocal and lyric. Guitar was exceptional. Well done

floyd, this is another one of your "hits"! Very well crafted. Sounds like something Vince Gill would do - and that's a real compliment in my book.

You just keep cranking them out.

Great sound, and feel to this one. Everything well up to your usual standards of excellence!

Steve
