Every ring (of a telephone)

Tekst § muziek: Fredden

All in all I know it's wrong to be your man
And I'll run from this illusion if I can
But every ring of a telephone... every ring of a telephone...
Every ring of a telephone is yours

This old heart has served me well though I gave it no rest
But right now I feel it beating its way out of my chest
And every sound of an opening door
Is like the sound of your bedroom door
Every ring of a telephone is yours

I'm getting out! Help me please
just feel I can't control myself anymore

But I know I love you more than ever before
There's no place that I could run to anymore

And every song on the radio
every sound of an opening door
Every ring of a telephone is yours

I'm getting out! Help me please
just feel I can't control myself
Love me please, woman
Love me please, woman
Love me please woman
Yeah


After many years, and after losing my lovely wife to cancer, I rebooted my music career. So here we are, 27 years later,
and, like with the Star Wars movies, now is the time to continue the saga :-) - with the 21 century recordings!
Surely I will be a little rusty :-)

So this is the first of the "memoires" project; songs written between 1975 and 1987
In loving memory of Rita

All instruments recorded in BIAB
Mixed in Reaper with EZMix

Fred,

Welcome to the forum!

That is a heck of a first post. Well put together.

The mix sounds good - nicely balanced between instruments. The fiddle could be panned slightly to one side (it sounds like it's centered) and pan the guitar lead/fills to the other side slightly - give them a bit of space...

A very nice vocal - sitting in the mix right where it should.

I enjoyed it. It has a good energy (especially the chorus!) Look forward to hearing more.

This is a nice song. I liked the melody. I agree with Floyd you've got a good handle on the mix and I thought you made good choices on the instrumentation. Thanks for posting and I'm looking forward to hearing another from you soon.

Fredden,

That song, for a first post, is an excellent way to make me want to hear more.
I can only echo what the others have said before me.
