One of the great things about BIAB is finding ways to change/improve an old song.
I had always performed this one as a mid-tempo "country pop ditty".
Kind of on the "lighter" side.
As I was looking for an electric guitar for the chorus, I began auditioning different tracks.
I often try dozens, looking for the right thing.
Often, listening to tracks whose name would indicate "no way" will that work...
Something about the StoneZ Honky guitars caught my attention for this...
...which sent the song in a whole new direction.
And gave it new life (for me)...

So, let's rock a little...

RealTracks in song: 995:Bass, Electric, HardRockLA Ev 120
RealTracks in style: ~496:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm StoneZ Honky 1 Ev 120
RealTracks in style: ~502:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm StoneZ Honky 2 Ev 120
RealTracks in song: 861:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm HardRockWaltzSustainHeld Ev 140
RealTracks in song: 1726:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm HonkyTonkJohn Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 1563:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm BritBluesInvasionJohn Ev 120
RealTracks in song: 1171:Guitar, Electric, Soloist RockUpbeatBrent Ev 140
RealDrums in style: RockClassicBritEv^1-a:Snare, Closed HiHat , b:Snare, Ride Bell


THIS LOVE THING

it doesn't come with a money-back guarantee
there's no happily-ever-after warranty
it doesn't come with instructions
or incantations to recite
but i think i've finally got this love thing right

i don't know how to fix my car when it breaks
some people make a lot of money, but i don't know what that takes
i can't dance the rhumba
i ain't much in a fight
but i think i've finally got this love thing right

(chorus)
i've got this love thing right
it didn't happen overnight
i've had my share of falls
before i fell for you
but now i've got this love thing right
swear i'm gonna hold on tight
girl, you're living proof
i've got this love thing right

i catch my breath every time you step through that door
you're just what they made forever for
i've got rainbows every morning
i sing to full moons every night
i think i've finally got this love thing right

repeat chorus


Crank it! Comments encouraged...

Hey Floyd, What a great start to the weekend!

A fabulous track of what I would call "Fairground Music". I could just imagine listening to this whilst riding the Roller Coaster or Speedway. I swear I could smell the hot-dogs while listening to it.

But Floyd, where was the guitar solo - the sort that makes your ears bleed?

All the technical stuff was, of course, perfect.

ROG.

Floyd have you been sneaking down to the roadhouse again to let yo bad self rocker come out and play.... LOL!

Seriously, cool job using those Honky tracks. I agree with ROG. Gives it a cut loose good time feel.

Party on.

Josie

Hey Floyd, Now my headphones are smokin. You are a first class songwriter. I like the interesting chord choices in the chorus. The lyrics are great as usual. You are such a natural singer. It always sounds effortless and you can hear the fun in your voice. I listened earlier but did not have the time to comment. The first thing I was going to say was where is the solo? It is short enough so there is room time wise. I am very glad that the others also noticed this. Then i started thinking of a lot of great songs that don't have an instrumental break, so I guess it is just a preference. Now I will stick my nose in where it doesn't belong. The guitar on the right side in the beginning is too loud. It throws the balance off. When the piano comes in on the right and the guitar backs off it balances back out. Maybe the pan is too far right,it doesn't sound like the left guitar is panned all the way left. Could be my blown out sense of hearing also. I hope my comments don't take away from a great effort. I can't imagine this tune in any other style. Another Great Floyd Jane Production! Rock on, Tom

Scott - thanks for the listen and nice comments.

ROG - So the mix is okay on the Tannoy's? I was trying to get it as "rockin'" as possible... As I mentioned this had always been a "pop ditty" kind of thing and didn't lend itself to a lead really. And that is how I set it up when I put the chords into BIAB. It started out with easy drums and acoustic guitars. It wasn't until I hit the StoneZ guitar that Mr. Hyde appeared. I then found a style that used that guitar which brought in different drums and piano.. And I just went on from there. If it had started as the rocker it turned into, I would have probably added a lead section.... Now that I think about it, I should have gotten hold of Tommy and see if he'd do like he did on "Bad Enough"...

Ian - thanks! (see response to ROG regarding missing lead smile )

Josie - I do seem to be rockin' out a bit more these days... was never able to do that before (myself) - "the band" has a lot of things up their sleeves!!! Thanks for the listen!

Tom - no one ever has to worry about stickin' their nose in... I welcome it... I re-mixed - brought the guitar down a touch (not much - it's rock-n-roll!) and slide it over some...

If you happen back by, let me know how that sits...

"i've got rainbows every morning
i sing to full moons every night"

In a pre-digital world I envision you late at night in your music room immersed up to your ears in in reams of paper -- each one containing one or more lyric gems than I'll create in a life time.

As far as the vocal, production and arrangement goes I could just cut and paste my comments from ALL of your previous posts. They are consistently superior.

well you got the Stones-thing right that's for sure

"I had always performed this one as a mid-tempo "country pop ditty"." I think can imagine the song this way, strumming on an acoustic guitar.

I especially like how you drop out instruments in the last verse, and also the "power" reverb brick wall outro

Yeah man!

Not only do you have the love thing right, you also have the song-writing thing right, thr lyrics-crafting thing right, the mixing and mastering thing right, the singing-performing thing right, and the PR part right!

You are the whole package, the consummate music-making pro!

And you're still a nice guy, too!!

LOVE THING O METER

You really got it crankin' on this one Floyd. Brilliant lyrics (my favorite: it doesn't come with instructions
or incantations to recite.
but i think i've finally got this love thing right.)

And that dead stop ending. Damn, that'll put you through the windshield alright.
