Hi,

Floyd and I have just finished putting together a song and we thought you might like to have a listen. The below link is to streaming audio. Because of this, it will take around 10 seconds to kick in.

... link to "What A Crazy Thing" (streaming)

If the above link doesn't work, Floyd has the song on his site at ...

... link to "What A Crazy Thing" (at Floyd's)

The song began in BIAB, had a couple of tracks added in RB and was mixed in Reaper. All instruments are Realtracks. Vocals and harmonies are all Floyd.

Hope you enjoy it.

Best wishes,
Noel

How could this not be a very good song being written
and performed by two outstanding musicians.
I enjoyed it.

Merry Christmas

This is the kind of song people will put their drink down to dance to. Very masterful job and collaboration. It's just damn good, what more is there to say?

<standing ovation!>

very commercial, it wouldn't surprise me to hear that some big-name in Nashville was doing this song.
Great collaboration! You play to both of your strengths

Like Lennon, McCartney
Rodgers and Hammerstein,
Noel and Floyd sound...
Mighty fine!
What a crazy thing Song writing is!

Hey Guys, what a nice bit of Rock and Roll!

Very smooth and professional and sounded wonderful on the big Tannoys.

Listening on headphones there seemed to be some auto-panning going on, which made my head spin a little bit, but that's just me being really picky!

Great track.

ROG.

Fantastic it is.
Great lyrics, great vocals with the extras added.

Above folks are right, great dance music.

Thanks for sharing the hard work between the two of you.

Just imagine 30 years ago 2 people collaborating being 15-16,000 miles
apart.

Excellent -- just ease of that wild guitar panning (headphone here, too). This is a super fun song. Did I say excellent -- oh I did, so I'll just say it again!

Hi,

Guenter
Thank you for dropping in and donating some time to have a listen. Much appreciated. Merry Christmas to you and your family, too. Noel

Pariahdise
Thanks for taking the time and for making such positive comments. You've given me a grin that's probably gonna last to Boxing Day! All the best for Christmas and 2013 Noel

Pat
Lennon and McCartney, Rodgers and Hammerstein!!!! LOL! Floyd sure has enough talent to share the limelight with those great names. As for me, well ... (I won't say anything more because I don't want to spoil the illusion.) thanks for once again having a listen to a song I've helped write and for making such generous, uplifting comments. Sending every good thought your way for Christmas. May peace and joy surround you. Noel

ROG
You're a bit of an expert when it comes to getting the very best out of BIAB/RB. I think that's why I felt a bit flattered to read "very smooth and professional"! Thank you. I agree that the automatic panning doesn't work as well on headphones as it does on external speakers. I like how it helps give the mix a bit more energy when the "B" style guitar joins in; especially in the repeat of the Bridge and the final A section. Hope you and yours have a great Christmas. Noel

Frank
I bet you're only saying that because I helped you out with a mischievous piano track Thank you for giving up some time to pop in and have a listen. Appreciated. It's amazing how easy the internet makes collaborating! Distance is no obstacle at all. Sending my best wishes to you and the Seeker family for Christmas. Noel

Kevin
My long-term aim is to get my mixes to sound as amazing as yours. I still remember just how blown away I was when I listened to that last song you posted. It was incredible. Thanks for the positive comments regarding "Crazy Thing"! May Christmas be wonderful for you and your family. Noel

Josie
Thank you I'm sending lots of "best wishes for a magnificent Christmas and a wonderful 2013" your way. Noel

I'd like to add my thanks to everyone for taking the time to listen and comment. Noel has covered that well (with color and pictures!).

I've done a lot of co-writing but this is the first time with someone on the other side of the world. It was a hoot. Just one more wondeful thing about this forum/community.

What Pat said (Great collaboration! You play to both of your strengths) was right. It's a great mix of ideas giving us (Noel and I) things that we would not necessarily have gotten "on our own". (And Pat, I love the new verse!!). One of the great advantages of co-writing.

It was also nice to have Noel "do all the work" - the tracks and the mixing (I assumed he would sing it, too, but then asked if I would....). It's been a great back-and-forth.

And Merry Christmas to everyone!

You can't go wrong hooking up with Floyd on a country song, that's for sure. And this proves it. Great work to both of you. Very pro quality sound, writing, vocals. Nice.

Yep! I totally agree. Thank you for positive feedback. BIAB/RB make it very easy to get a pro sound. Peter Gannon's software is brilliant and every time I use it, I'm amazed at how easy it is to get outstanding results.

Have a happy Christmas,
Noel
