In Case Of Fire ( With Torrey Bliss)

Impressed with the FabFour influenced song Torrey posted a while back, I challenged myself to try a Beatlish tune.
Mostly I wanted to see if I could write lyrics that have their cheeky Brit. humour.
Torrey most generously agreed to take my demo and add his super lead guitar and some polish to the mix.
We hope you like our collaboration and welcome your comments.

Style is _BRITPOP.STY (Classic British Pop )

RealTracks in style: ~683:Bass, Electric, PopHalfNotesPush Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 888:Piano, Acoustic, Solo-Accompaniment PopBronx Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 1270:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PopUpliftSyncMuted Ev16 120
RealTracks in style: 1948:Mandolin, Rhythm PopUpliftingAndy Ev16 120
RealDrums in style: NashvilleEven16^5-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride



In Case Of Fire

she left a paper trail
a look so veiled
a lipstick x on a map
dropped on the floor
of the elevator
she was mysterious like that

I won`t pretend
I was at loose ends
fate had held a clearance sale
grasping at straws
I pressed hold the door
all she said was Bloomingdales

follow the signs

in case of fire
gravity will bring you down
in case of fire
please take the stairs
where I`ll be found

I sensed eagerness
covered by her dress
you might say her hem still showed
even in the mall
I let myself fall
the laws of physics can`t be slowed

follow the signs

in case of fire
gravity wont let you down
in case of fire
please take the stairs
where I`ll be found

in case of fire
gravity will bring you down
for your burning desire
please take the stairs
where I`ll be found

Your setting the bar very high for yourself but the result was surprisingly good. The vocals may be a touch too upfront.
Great write. Rob

Wow guys!
This is so professional and creative.
Super vocals, and man... can Torrey play!
One small nit... the lead vocal could be slightly less loud in the verses (but that's just our opinion).

I have to agree that the vocals do jump out as being a touch loud, but otherwise the song is pretty darn flawless! The overall quality is very professional! Great job! smile

Robert, first of all, let me say it was a real joy to work with you on this! I have always felt your ability to write a clever lyric is top level!
"I sensed eagerness covered by her dress you might say her hem still showed
even in the mall I let myself fall the laws of physics can`t be slowed"
I wish I could come up with lines like that without spending days on them. I noted a couple of comments about the vocals being a little hot in the verses. This folks is my fault. I mixed them hot because I didn't want those clever lyrics obscured by the backtrack. I remixed and sent again to you Robert but I still love this one as it is! Fun song and I loved working on it! Thanks, Torrey

There`s a bar? A new mix with vocals toned down on the verses is up now- thanks for the review and comments here and on Soundcloud.

Kenny,
I attempted to put myself back in time to the days of watching the nudge-nudge, wink-wink tv shows of the early 60`s that I think influenced the Beatles as much as vaudeville... I`m happy you were entertained.
Yes, Torrey really hit the mark with the guitar- doubled the fun factor of the song!

Very, very nice, gentlemen! Terrific lyric and vocals. Torrey's guitar parts are really sweet. Everything to like and nothing not to like.

Comments will be brief as my wife is experiencing serious medical issues.

very nice!

That`s very kind - this is a stretch for me, but of course bread and butter for Torrey!
Vocals lowered a bit now.

Thank you, Floyd; I wouldn`t have dreamed of giving a pure pop song a whirl until disovering BiaB and this forum... I sure hope Torrey invites me over to play at his house someday!

Dave,
Thanks for that - especially pleased you enjoyed my vocal effort.
Pre-Revolver I`m not sure the lads recorded anything over 3 minutes, so that was my limit starting out.
It helps when you have a guitarist like Torrey who can peel off
the riffs with no room to spare!

Hello, Robert

You pioneered a new ground.
Very splendid collaboration with Torrey!
Guitar tone is really Beatlish.
Vocals and harmonies are also cool.
And there is ingenuity in the chord progression as usual, I feel your composing style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Glad you enjoyed this.
I used a Nectar pop preset on the vocals which are doubled ( and I think Torrey added another EQ).
Thanks for your listen.

Hi Shigeki,
Yes, I thought Torrey really got that George sound on the guitar too!
Thanks for mentioning the progression - most of it is very similar to Obladi Oblada, but I thought the chorus had a bit more Lennon in there.
I appreciate your kind comments.

Revolver or Rubber Soul > nailed!

It's been, shall I say, a trip watching you branch out more and more. Congrats on setting the high target...and hitting it.

An inventive lyric, engaging vocal, fine guitars and mix all adds up to one of the coolest tunes posted here in a while.

Collabs are fun and when they produce like this...Wow!!!

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190
