The inspiration for this song was a certain woman who broke up with me after learning that I was not as financially secure as she had hoped. The intro uses BIAB style CAIRPGS (Celtic Air Fingerpicking Acoustic), then we switch to BG_BNJR (Bluegrass Pop) for the rest of the song. There’s a break which uses soloist 593 Fiddle. It’s all BIAB, no other instruments. The RealTracks were brought into Logic Pro X where the vocals were recorded and everything was mixed. No special effects, other than the reverb, compressors, etc. that come with Logic. All comments welcome.

Ha Ha

A bit of fun

Really liked the finish - I suppose I should've expected that.

Nicely put together

Gilley,

Excellent writing.

"I owe Mastercard and Visa
Uncle Joe and Aunt Teresa"

This ain't your first rodeo.... maintaining that level of humor (and quality) throughout a lyric is the mark of experience..

The production and mix are also top-notch. Tastefully done. Well recorded vocal.

Enjoyable - start to finish.

Hi Gilley
This is great! I absolutely love the line "I'm broke and brokenhearted". The way you have used the "stops"in BIAB also adds something. Well done.

I had to listen once I saw that title. Excellent!! Rhyming lobster and mobster has got to be a first!!! The theme reminds me of a few things. A guy I used to work with told me of a T-shirt that said "I am not a success object". The other was from Diary of a Wimpy Kid that my son loves to read. His Uncle Gary got married, and his wife-to-be said "I have about 30 thousand dollars in the bank" to which he replied, "I have about 40" which turned out to be 40 dollars! I got a kick out of that, as did my son. Loved the ending of this one too!!!! Take care. Greg

What a riot!!! Terrific.

I didn't scroll to see what you would rhyme with 'lobster', but I guessed correctly:)

After that I was hooked, no pun intended, but truth be told you had me at 'moon...greasy spoon.'


And, as a native SD'tan, I appreciated that lyric as well.

This was refreshing and so well done. Take a bow.

I was smiling through it.

Nice work on the lyrics and on the production, putting several styles and tempos together and making it flow smoothly.

totally enjoyed it.

I didn't know what to expect honestly with that title. Turns out, it is a very nicely written and produced comedy song.

Hi, Gilley !:))


This could have been more than
hilarious if the undertone would not
have been kinda sad ! I hope you have
found another kind of friend nowadays ?
In any case, I also liked your tune
and performance very much !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hi!

Good to "meet" you! We've only been here about 3 months. I think this is the first of your songs we've listened to.

I love humor. I'm am author and have written a three-book humorous series. Love creative and interesting humor and this has it. Not only that...it's superbly done!

We totally enjoyed our listen. Love that ending!!!! Best to you...
