.... and she's not afraid to use it.


HOLLY'S GOT A HEART


holly's been in love before,
and she likes the way it feels
that gut-wrenchin', toe-clinchin' hit-you-from-behind kind
with no denying it's real
but she hasn't had a lover, true or other
since she can't remember when
watch yourself, boys
holly's out huntin' again

   holly's got a heart, loaded for love
   with both sides pumpin', she's bound to hit somethin'
   if she fires it often enough
   someone's gonna fall
   that's all there is to it
   holly's got a heart
   and she's not afraid to use it

holly gets her heart broke in two
every now and then
she gives a big shrug, that's just love
sometimes you lose, sometimes you win
no matter the cost, she loves gettin' lost
in the romance of it all
there's simply no limits
when holly's heart hears the call

   holly's got a heart, loaded for love
   with both sides pumpin', she's bound to hit somethin'
   if she fires it often enough
   someone's gonna fall
   that's all there is to it
   holly's got a heart
   and she's not afraid to use it

aim for what you want
and let go with all you've got
holly sets her sights
and gives it her best shot....

   holly's got a heart, loaded for love
   with both sides pumpin', she's bound to hit somethin'
   if she fires it often enough
   someone's gonna fall
   that's all there is to it
   holly's got a heart
   and she's not afraid to use it

Floyd,

That got me rockin'.
I expected you to do a solo laugh
Quote:
gut-wrenchin', toe-clinchin' hit-you-from-behind kind
I like that line, when those were the days for me!! altho' some girls probably would say that they felt the gut wrenching, toe clenching feeling when they saw me shimmy on over lol.

As I have said before this is the country I like.

Thoroughly enjoyed.

Yep, that's a rocker all right. I like the way it opens it a matter of fact tone, and gets right to the chorus.

I cheated and read the lyrics first - I liked the asymmetrical stuff you threw in there, and how natural it sounded when sung - the hits on "use it" were a nice touch. I thought the bridge was especially effective.

Nice song, nicely done... As usual! smile

Alyn - thanks for the spin. It was best to leave this one to Brent...

David - appreciate it... if it doesn't sound natural, "you've done something wrong" - should always be the foremost thought in a songwriter's mind... that and... "if it's cliché, throw it away".

Hi Floyd.

Classic country, right up there at your usual professional high standard throughout, which doesn't leave me a lot more to say.

Well, maybe just one thing, but I had to look really hard this time!

This isn't as pronounced on the mains, but in the 'phones you can hear the instruments stop at different times when sustaining the last chord. It's marginal, but I think back to the days when we did sessions and I don't think we'd have got away with that.

Hey, you're making it really difficult for me to find anything at all these days, but I know you'd be disappointed if we didn't have our usual discussion about something?

Regards, ROG.

Hi Floyd,

A very nice country rock song!
Sounds very steady and crispy clear through my speakers.
Quality as usual, I especially like the bridge and the pedal steel guitar in it.
Some real tracks in there I haven't tried yet.

regards,
Rob

Hey, you have a nice classic 80's style country rocker there my friend.

The mix is nice and clean. Vocals are good.

I especially liked the way you treated the modulation.

Nits: end of the second verse coming into the chorus.... something's not synced properly and the ending....as has been pointed out, is a bit careless.

Other than those small nits, listening on this small speaker computer system, the mix sounded good.

What a cool country rocker! We were
streaming it in the breakfast room this
morning and Janice's visiting 93 year
old mother was loving it! Tapping out
the drum beat in perfect time and
saying how much she likes that voice.

Note: She raised a family of musical
folks and genuinely likes a zillion
genres. She still has a great left hand
rhythm on the piano.

Heck, floyd you are trans-generational
indeed. Our nieces and nephews
and mothers love it. And this one is
another example why. Great lyric and
arrangement along with your typical
incredible grasp of what can be done
with BIAB. Big studio sound on my
studio system and on the "big"
living room system.

A great Saturday morning spin!

Hi Floyd
Havent had much time for listening lately but had to give this one a listen because my daughter's name is Holly. Read the lyrics to her and it got a smile on her face even before we listened to the song. We loved it!

BOB! So very nice to have you around for a listen.... and, btw, where is the next BOB-song????


ROG - thanks, as always... the little "disconnect" at the end was intentional. I could have easily deleted it. But I liked how it sounded like one guy just didn't quite get that last chord right. It happens all the time in the studio. And sometimes they become iconic. (did you know the piano at the beginning of Seger's Old Time Rock'n'Roll was a mistake?). I left it in for a little fun and "realism"....

Hmmm... And I really thought I'd caught you out this time, Floyd.

I should, of course, have known better.

Maybe next time...

First I really like the beat and your arrangement choices to support that country groove you've got going. Interesting lyric approach that works. Well sung.

Howdy Floyd ...

Great country rocker from early to mid eighties. Loved everything about about. Did notice one small thing:

Coming out of the chorus, I think that lead guitar on the left channel could use a little more volume. just until the the next verse begins, then drop it back where it was. I guess that's really more of a personal preference than a nit, but it stood out a touch to me (Alan).

We love key modulations ... they give the song a whole new spirit and makes it fly as high as the previous verses/choruses. Kinda like infusing new energy and "oomph".

Nice stuff, as always! Best to you ...

Alan & Di

floyd, Good solid write. Love the modulation after the bridge. Good use of the steel in the bridge. The vocals are spot on. At first I thought the lead guitar was a little busy in the choruses, but I realize at that speed and with so many notes being played it would have not been possible to cut fills in and out. On further listening it really does work as is. I also love the opening. One of your best comments to date is [ " if it doesn't sound natural, "you've done something wrong" - should always be the foremost thought in a songwriter's mind... that and... "if it's cliché, throw it away". ] This is valuable information to all of us aspiring songwriters. It is something I've always thought but probably never verbalized. Thanks as always for sharing your thoughts on what you do so well. Once again, Well Done! Tom

that gut-wrenchin', toe-clinchin' hit-you-from-behind kind
with no denying it's real

That's crafty writing! The whole production is top notch. Very clever and different metaphor which is superbly executed. If I was going to change anything, I would consider going G to A (I believe the song is in G?) to D with the melody climbing in the line "with both sides pumpin'..." I think it would offer a nice musical change. Just a thought. Really excellent write!! Take care. Greg

Rob - thanks - appreciate that...


Thanks, Charlie - glad you enjoyed it...


Herb - thanks for the listen. I listened to that section a number of times and am not hearing whatever it is you think is there. "something's not synced" is pretty nebulous. I can guarantee you that I am never careless about any aspect of a production. The ending was intentional. I had just seen the Muscle Shoals movie and one of the things that really stuck with me was Rick Hall's comment at the very end of the movie regarding how sterile music is today because all the little things that make it "human" are removed. So I decided to leave it. I like "human".

Joanne - I know you've been busy. Haven't listened to your CD, but will... I popped into your SJ kick off for a couple of minutes (all I had time for) and just happened to hit it at the middle of I Will Always Be Here...

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
