I haven't been too active of late, couldn't be helped. I do listen to everything posted, I just can't comment much.

Here is a song about Space, and our reluctance to reach for it.

Lurrsen Mix

©2012 Robert Randall Burke

What a dream we had
But we let it slip away
We could touch the stars
From a million miles away

But little men with little minds
Came in
And stole the dream away.

Fools rush in
And steal our futures
Where they've been, nobody knows.

What a dream we had
We were going to the stars
What a dream we had
We were on our way to Mars.

But little men with little minds
Came in
And stole the dream away.

Fools rush in
And steal our futures
Where they've been, nobody knows.

This is GORGEOUS!, Bob...

Your are SUCH a fine songwriter - you say more with a few words than any I've ever known. A real talent. Blows me away every time.

The production on this is every bit a match for the superb writing.
The vocal on this is every bit a match for the superb writing. (Love the processing).

LOVE that stop!

Top shelf stuff, through and through.

Looking forward to the next one!

I hear lots of really good songs on this forum, and every so often I hear something great. This is one of those times!

As far as the subject matter goes, the future seemed so positive after that first moon landing, but then everything basically stopped! I often wonder what the world would be like today if they had kept on going with that line of research instead of finding new and better ways to blow the crap out of each other.

This is really special, Bob! Excellent production, just the right treatment on that vocal. Stop was brilliant! I also like your lead playing, very melodic with great tone.

No worries on commenting on my tune, I am aware of your condition that makes it difficult to type.
Just keep on posting more of these songs please smile

Very good!I really enjoyed the chord progression on this - yes, Floyd -like as has been noted. You also nailed the vocal with that sense of foreboding coming through.
Inspired ending too.

Tremendous. That has been a dream of mine since I was a kid.

The word is overused...but, what the heck, this production is mesmerizing.

It's a wonderful confluence of lyric/vocal with the perfect backing tracks.

+1 on What Dave said. This song is in the great category. Just loved your vocal and lyric. I too got the Pink Floyd vibe. Guitar was excellent. Just some very sweet placing...

Beautiful melancholy melody and chording, nice simple arrangement, great vocals and lyrics, superb guitar soloing. Pink Floyd and David Bowie vibes to me also.

Everything about this is top shelf. I really liked the stops and the effects on your vocals.
The only exercise I did this month was run out of money!

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

Everyone has already mentioned the appropriate accolades. Just know I feel the same way. That stop with the perfect amount of decay was terrific. The guitar work, vocal, backing tracks - all stellar. Kudos!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Excellent stuff, Bob.

A million miles away from your usual style and yet still so engaging and accomplished.

I heard Bowie before Pink Floyd, but yes, both in there.

Nice to hear you playing lead up-front - you should do that more often!

Going back for a second listen.

Regards, ROG.

Surprisingly good. Don't get me wrong, your songs are always good, but this takes everything to a whole new level.
There's great dynamics in this song, some dark atmosphere and really beautiful vocals!
