Dear Forum Friends,
I hope everyone is having fun tonight. I've been listening in on all your new songs. I'm just humbled to be able to have a new offering for your entertainment.
You'll probably never come across a song about someone's mother-in-law that's so upbeat and positive but you would be too if you're wife's mom was anything like Jelly Jo. She is one unique lady. The song only scrtatches the surface. We had a lot of fun writing it. and thankfully Jo likes it too. We hope you will as well.

Here's the link:

http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=12900698&q=hi&newref=1


Here are the RTs:
Style is _LAZYJZM.STY (Piano Trio Medium Slow)

444:Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Sw 140 ('2' only)
446:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Jazz Sw 140
RealDrums in style: JazzBrushes: a: Brushes Swirling b: Brushes Busier

Also, this was my first experiment with a "Sectional Verse" or "Prelude". They used to be a popular song element and often used is songs from musicals.

Enjoy

It was an enjoyable listen. It has a nice, easy, feel good vibe.

Cool prelude. This is your best, I think.

A good upbeat one...

Hi SpaceDog,

Very entertaining; terrific melody and arrangement. I always like listening to a good, uplifting, upbeat tune. I agree with floyd. I reckon this is one of the best I've heard from your songwriting catalogue.

All the best,
Noel

Charlie,
Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. I can't recall talking to you before. Nice to meet you!


Floyd,
Thanks for listening. My wife had a huge say in writing and arranging this one. Credit goes to her.

Alyn,
I'm glad you liked it. I know, it's really unusual to actually like your mother-in-law. What can I say. Just lucky I guess.

Josie,
Thanks. Always good to hear from you. Jo's full name is Joephine, of course. Do they ever call you Jo?

Guenter,
Vielen dank! I appreciate your kind words. The BGVs are always tough for me despite being a student of music.

Greg,
Thanks for listening. I like that word "feelgood" I think I use it in the description. Thanks.

Noel,
Good to hear from you! Thanks for comments. It seems people like my fun upbeat tunes better. Curious.


We so glad you all liked the song. More comments and replies later.

SpaceDog

Hi SD,

Well this is very nice! That says a lot, since we could't care less about jazz music grin
So this is a very fine exception. Good work and cool vocals.
(And nice to hear such positive words about a mother in law..... says Anne-Marie, being one herself).

Regards,
R & AM

just when I thought that all of the possible song topics had been used to death, you came up with a pro-mother in law song! Awesome! I Like it!

My mother in law was a real treasure to me too, so I understand how that relationship can be much better than its stereotype.

The flow and feel of the song did an excellent job of conveying the positive energy between in-laws! Looking for a direct comparison style-wise, it reminded me early 60s rock like Ricky Nelson

R & AM,
Thanks for listening and your kind words. I'm glad you gave it a chance despite the genre. There's a lot of great stuff in the jazz genre. I marvel at their skill and creativity.
By the way, I always loved visiting The Netherlands especially Amsterdam. In fact I have a picture of "the dam" in my family room.

Dani,
Thanks for the reminder. Here's the cloud link. Enjoy.

Pat,
Your first comment made me laugh out loud (I know there's a text abbreviation for that but I hate texting.) I'm glad you liked it. She a real gem.


FMM
Thanks. The vocals stretch my low range in the prelude. That low G is about the ground floor for me. You wouldn't want to hear the F!
Glad you enjoyed it.

SD

Very interesting arrangement, vocal and all round production. Enjoyed very minute of it.....and Janice's mother is 93, a g-g-grandmother and a treasure....so I'm in with the cool mother-in-law vibe. Thanks for posting this!

It certainly has a classic "song from a musical" sound to it.

Well done.

Dani,
Thanks so much. I'm glad you liked it.

Janice and Bud,
Thanks. I'm really lucky. I hope your mother is doing well. Mine, not so much. (see "Forget Me Not)


Herb,
Thanks, that's just what I was going for. Glad you enjoyed it.

SD, that intro is really good, a back to the future Tin Pan Alley thing!

Everything about this is top shelf.

Super song!
