Just To Love Somebody - 09/15/17 11:32 AM

(warning headphone users, you might think my solos are a little hot in the mix
they sounded good in the DAW but once posted they sounded a just a bit hotter)

This is for the ones who think a decent song needs to have a guitar solo
(Dave (Blue Attitude), Peter F. and all youse out there)

Also, it's for J&B. I know that ya'll are busy clearing trees and brush
This is Janice's to record anytime she wants (this is just a rough demo)

As always thanks for listening, comments welcome, hope you like it

Oh honey
Tell me that you understand
You know it’s true, so true
Nothing ever goes to plan

Tell to leave
Beg me to stay
Call me a fool
I’m yours either way

Well I’m standing
Hanging outside your door
Don’t say that it’s over
Or that you don’t need me no more

Tell to leave
Beg me to stay
Call me a fool
I’m yours either way

Well I know it’s not enough
Just to love somebody
They surely, surely
Have to love you back
It’s never enough
Just to love somebody
Gotta keep that love
Runnin right on track

Don’t let the sun
Let the sun go down
Cause you’re gonna miss me
When I’m not around

Tell to leave
Beg me to stay
Call me a fool
I’m yours either way
Honey

Well I know it’s not enough
Just to love somebody
They surely, surely
Have to love you back
It’s never enough
Just to love somebody
Gotta keep that love
Runnin right on track

Never enough
Just to love somebody

Yeah! You had me hooked right from that opening riff.

Man, you are on a roll lately, just one good song after another!

Love your vocal in this, just the right amount of grit for the material.

Guitar sounded great, I enjoyed hearing you lay down some nice licks!

Good stuff Kenny, enjoyed the listen!

Kenny,

That is one hot vocal! You are giving Lawrence a run-for-his-money these days! Awesome!

Nice guitar work. The level works, I think - lively, has great feeling...

Nice rocker. (again...what a vocal!).

(I'm not a fan of a hard panned piano).

Excellent listen.

What a tune, Kenny! I love the groove of this one, it's easy to move to and the arrangements are flawless too. Plus, I found the lyrics to be very engaging!

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Kenny

That was really good!
Along with the excellent vocal & nice guitar solos it's just a rocking good song.(I think I posted a song once without a guitar solo!).

Kenny,

A very good rocker and not much to change to these ears, though no doubt Janice could add some cool harmonies on the chorus.
Your vocals get more edgy all the time and this one has a real one-take feel that needs no tweaking.
The solo is sweet!

Thanks Dave,

much appreciated

glad you like my guitar licks, you and Peter are much better players

than me. I used to play thru a Marshall years and many clubs ago, it's

got a lot of bite.

Long live guitar solos!!!

thanks fj,

glad that you like the levels,

I like your ideas on mixing piano, I may redo this one,

but I like the live stage raw sound so it may stay this way.

I always appreciate your support and kind words

Hello, Kenny

Very powerful tune!
As many others said, you are a real Rocker.
Your vocal is always very nice.
The opening riff is very cool.
As Peter said, along with the excellent vocal & nice guitar solos it's just a rocking good song.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hello Kenny,

How can a song this hot be so cool???

What a great listen! This is a great song. That intro was splendid ... caught me immediately. Love the bass line - perfect for a great Blues Rock tune. Your gritty voice sparkles, as usual.

No problem with the mix. Sounds fine to me.

Loved it! So cool it has frost hanging off of it!

Kenny,

Another strong rock and roll write.

Very infectious.

Great vocals.

Good job man. Kind of Van Morrison (early Van.)

Hey Robert,

One take feel is pretty accurate, didn't think I could do much better for me!

thanks for your listen and kind comments

Re: Just To Love Somebody - 09/18/17 07:14 PM

Kenny, this is a winner all the way. Great rocker that had me from the git-go. Super chops man! Your vocal is top shelf for this genre.

This is a keeper for sure!

Re: Just To Love Somebody - 09/18/17 07:57 PM

Great job Kenny, really captures the emotion of the lyrics and like that guitar solo too.

Re: Just To Love Somebody - 09/19/17 10:12 AM

Somebody mentioned Van Morrison whom we've listened to for years. Yeah, you might be morphing into him smile This song really has a lot of his vocal feel...particularly of his recordings over the last decade.

If there was a genre called "infectious rock" you would own it!

"Also, it's for J&B. I know that ya'll are busy clearing trees and brush
This is Janice's to record anytime she wants (this is just a rough demo)"

Rough demo? Hahaha...this sounds like a polished rocker to me. Maybe add some harmony but, man, your lead is nailed. And you ain't no slacker on the axe.

Fun!!!!

J&B

Hey Kenny Loved the way you jumped right into this tune. What a cool backtrack. Vocal was excellent the rasp in your voice is very cool. Guitar was exceptional. Well done..

Thanks David,

appreciate the kind words,

Van was here in the flesh, at Hershey the other night

I missed him, a friend saw the show, said that he was as great as always

in fine voice. Hat pulled down, shades on, doing his thang

Tell to leave
Beg me to stay
Call me a fool
I’m yours either way


LOVE THAT!!!! Your styles are all over the map with one thing always in common-always GREAT!! Love the ATTITUDE in this one. I could hear Paul McCartney singing this in the Abbey Road days with some Oh Darling feel. EXCEPTIONAL!!! Take care. Greg
