Hi, friends !:))


I got inspired by a telephone call
from a good female friend of mine
and from her postcard depicting
among other things a key !!!:))
Somehow I can´t help it, but I
do like these funky styles so much that
I decided to put the song to it:

Here are the links:

Lyrics:

YOU CALLED ME UP (by Dani) © Dani Lindroos 2014
You called me up, that made my day
though you were far, so far away, my darling, far away!
It made me feel so good to talk to you
´cause I love your voice, you know I do

I thank you for your Birthday Card to me
I long to find out where to put the pictured key, let us see
when you´re back here with me !

solo

In my sleep at night I´ll toss around and turn
I count the hours and the days to your return

You know you really made my day today
and it feels so good to know that everything is okay
so let us hope that it will stay that way
always sunny never gray

I thank you darling you´re so nice and sweet
please forgive me if I can hardly wait until we meet
you´re so neat, so neat

solo

You fill my heart with utmost joy, my dear
so it´s no wonder that I long to be you close and near
long to be you close and near, my dear !

Very nice Dani!! I think one of the things I love most in your music is the genuine passion. There's a youthful excitement that I would love to rediscover. Another pretty and inspiring song!! Love it! Take care. Greg

Dani,
I do like the falsetto in the background, I assume it is you.
This sounds like the best thank you for a birthday card I have ever heard.
Happy Birthday by the way!

enjoyed

Hi Dani,

as Greg said there is a genuine passion in this song as in many others of yours. But that "youthful excitement" implies heartaches and pain. That's why I'm glad I got rid of it in the late nineties. But I enjoy it in your songs. That makes them so true.
Very nice chords. I like that rhythm, too.
The falsetto in the background is very well done.
Go on riding that wave!

Hi, Guenter !

You are right in every aspect !
It is just that I feel I can
handle my one sided crush as
I do not have any illusions
about the future ! I like to
dream that I´m in love and it helps
me getting thru those many lonely
days I have gone thru and am still
to go !:))Maybe the loneliness
and my true feelings really are
coming thru in my songs, at least I
hope so !:))I thank you my good friend
for your most warm words. Know that I
feel humbled, yes, I do !

Cheers
Dani

"You called me up, that made my day" That's the key. Get a day made and then move on to the next. It's easy to say take them one day at a time....but isn't that really the only way to take them? Every one is a gift.

Nice! Cool chords and arrangement and vocal.....but we've come to expect that!

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.
