Lyrics:

Yes still I do (love you) by Dani

Still on my own, yes on my own
strolling up and down all the streets alone
I don´t know what to do, when you are not around
because I love you, love you, love you, sweetheart I do
there´s no one like you, like you like you, no one so true
I´ve searched my way around
but there´s no one to be found
because I love you, love you, love you, darling I do
yes still I do

solo

My love has grown, yes love has grown
strolling here alone all on my own
I don´t know what to do, when you are not around
because I love you, love you, love you, sweetheart I do
there´s no one like you, like you like you, no one so true
I´ve searched my way around
but there´s no one to be found
because I love you, love you, love you, darling I do
yes still I do

Enjoyed the song. Good match between the vocals and music style. Upbeat tempo fits you well.

Quite a departure for you Dani. You're voice is pretty mellow for this rockin' music but it still reflects your warm spirit! A fun listen! Take care. Greg

Hi, Robert !


Thanking you for your kind comment
I must admit this was not really a song,
more like a test of style and certain
chord progressions !:))

Cheers

Hi, Charlie !:))

Thank you so much for your kind comments !:))
Upbeat may fit but I am not sure about
the style !:)) In any case, I like to
test different styles and see what, if any,
reactions they might give, then I know better !:))(lol) !

Cheers

Hi, Greg !

Thank you for your most kind comments !
I guess I am way out of the box yes, but
I do not mind testing a little bit (lol) !:))
I agree with you that the rockin´may not be
my best style, but I was in fact testing
certain chords and the harmony voices
to them here !:))

Cheers

Dani,

I like it! As has been said - a good combination with your vocals!

Fun and peppy and catchy! (and a good mix) It's still running through my head...

Musical departures from the norm are good and even better when they work well like this one. Hello Dani the blues man! Enjoyed it.

I like that texas blues shuffle sound. The chorus and the backing vocals stand out for me, quite nice. Thanks for sharing.

Hi, Floyd !:))

You are being all to kind
with this veteran, but I do
appreciate your kind comments
truly very much !:))

I am only writing music for
my own pleasure and (a few friends)
but to those who aim to write
music seriously I would warmly
recommend to start with the catchiest
possible refrain ! There´s gotta be
a hook in the tune if you want to
get within the heads of the big guys !:)) (lol) !

Cheers

Hi, Kevin !

So very nice of you to
give my experiment a listen
and bring such kind words
about it !:))

It is a very powerful
style indeed and I think
it was even a bit too powerful
for my backing vocals, but it was
real fun to try !:))

This has a 60's movie song feel to it. Retro stuff.

Cool modulation in there.

I think it''s closer to pop than the blues. Might be some blues influence in it but it's really a pop style the way it turned out.

Good work.
