Hi PG music community. Here is another song that came right "out of the box". I was inspired by the players (I believe it's called STONZEY, honky-tonk or something very close to that). Loved the groovin' guitars and went with it. A friend played live bass and I put some MIDI piano. Any comments appreciated. Take care. Greg

HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS

When Bridgette wears them high heels, she’s got legs about a half-mile long
And it’s hard not to stare when she moves to her favorite song
And Jenny’s got that sexy smile that’ll freeze you where you stand
She’s like a long cool glass of water on the desert sand

Still I’m bettin’ that I won’t be lettin’ ‘em change my point of view
Every day it’s clearer what keeps me nearer to you

It’s the way you rock me baby, keeps my mind on you
It’s the way you do those things only you can do
It’s the way you rock me baby, makes me tingle down to my toes
If there’s anything better than this…..Heaven only knows

For centuries man has pondered the nature of true love
Is it celestial magic or as simple as a hand and glove

I’m not spinnin’ my wheels about sinnin’, if it feels good it can’t be bad
My love’s still thrivin’, you’re love’s still drivin’ me mad

It’s the way……

Hats off Greg for taking the Stones style and making it your own. Not an easy thing to do. Cool fun song that sounds like it came right off the oldies charts. Love it.

Great job.

Greg,

Sounding great! I also like to take some of the included tracks and rework them. You did a great job on it. Sounds like 1968 all over again! Nice work!

Hi Greg.
I enjoyed that! I agree that you have captured the Stones vibe nicely. Good harmonies. Did you sing them?

Hi Greg,

You really have taken an instrumental style and a musical genre and put the 'Greg Johnson' stamp on them clear and confident all the way.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening. The mix, presentation, everything, sounded really good on my system.

Regards,
Noel

Rock on man....we love it. A fine rocker with clever lyrics, fine vocals and a good mix to go with it. And as gruve mentioned -- there's a lot of tasty little touches in there. Gonna be coming back to this one!

A fun one, Greg.

Thought the guitar on the right could come up just a bit. Other than that... a good balance... good sound on the bass.. and the harmonies are fun..
