Lyrics:

GONE ARE THOSE GOLDEN DAYS (by Dani)

I´d love to travel back in time
to those times that were so good to us
but gone are those golden days
they cannot be retrieved anymore

My only option left
is to dream myself away

Crying myself to sleep
is the only way to see you dear
gone are those golden days
of love and tender days of yore
days that will not come no more
days of song and rhyming lore

Oh, my love I miss you so
Is there no way you´d return to me
gone are those golden days
please, find a way back again

My only option left
is to dream myself away

Brown eyes, chestnut hair
no one else can miss you more than I
wonderful a smile and features so fair
in my dreams I still can see

I´d love to travel back in time
to those times that were so good to us
but gone are those golden days
days of love so true
days of loving you
only you

© Dani Lindroos 2014

Hi Dani,

nice chord changes and good singing.
The drum breaks distracted me a little.

Dani,

Very good mix on this. I had some difficulty following the structure of the song - thought there could have been a little more change in feel between parts... but perhaps that would not be what you wanted to accomplish...

The drums breaks certainly were interesting! I don't think I've heard anyone else do that! Cool idea.

That one'll rip the paint right off of your heart. Sad but full of genuine emotion. Thanks for the chance to listen.

Well my friend, you produced another fine tune. interesting drums breaks, I almost venture to say that they are from two different drums RD's ( I might be wrong), but never the less, it worked fine. Thanks for sharing.

Mike B.

I enjoyed your song. It is well written and I certainly agree with Janice & Bud that you write very genuine and emotional lyrics. Your soft vocals work well with your musical choices. For me, this song portrays your emotional attachment to your happier times in the past, your present day longing to have those feelings of happiness again and the aching heart that so misses the one that has gone. That is a lot of directions to take the listener on in a 3 minute song but you did a good job with accomplishing it. Good job.

Hi Dani. Lovely voice, feeling and intimate sound. Enjoyed the percussion.
Also had a few years with the barbershoppers. How about doing a song about them? Cheers.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker
