Charlie Fogle contacted me and said that he had written a song using song titles that I had posted in the last year. He then asked if I would like to participate playing guitar and possibly singing.

What he didn’t realize was that I would hijack the whole thing. I originally wanted his vocals but I got caught up in it. His melody is untouched. I just tweaked a few lyrics and changed a few real tracks in his original SGU.

Needless to say I was very flattered that someone would take the time to do this and then include me. The outcome is that this provided me with a retrospective look at 2014. Thank you Charlie!

Looking From Where I’m At


I don’t want to talk about it
I want to hold you tonight
I never even thought about it
i just want to hold you tonight
cause looking from where I’m at
I’m walking on thin ice
Looking from where I’m at
Wrong is what I do right
I’ll never quit loving you
No jury could convict me of love
Loving you is what i do
no jury would convict me of love
But looking from where I’m at
I’m walking on thin ice
Looking from where I’m at
Wrong is what I do right
(Instrument Break )
Looking from where I’m at
I’m walking on thin ice
Looking from where I’m at
Wrong is what I do right
Wrong is what I do right

The big drum sound was a great start, and then that signature Tom Adams "hit you in the gut" guitar came in and I was hooked. But, there was no let down from there. Great vocal, great arrangement, great solo. Great everything!! Thanks Charlie and Tom. Outstanding listen!! Take care. Greg

my thoughts exactly!
I really like the idea of constructing lyrics from multiple other sources. I could easily imagine doing it based on Beatles songs, because there would be so much to choose from... but to pull it off with one man's forum songs over the course of one year.. that's downright masterful!

As always Tommy.. you wear many hats well, playing multiple instruments, singing, mixing etc.. you got the whole deal. If you were a set of encyclopedias, you wouldn't be missing any of the volumes.

A great concept that yielded a great collab. How cool is that? A perfect vocal, guitar I can barely dream of and a mix I aspire toward. Toss in a clever write and you got the whole package.

WTG guys!!!!!

Pat, I agree that Charlie did a great job on this. I don't recall ever being compared to a set of encyclopedias before, so thanks - I think. I guess that dates us a bit. Funny how these things that we always took for granted are disappearing. Merry Christmas friend. Tom

Hi Tom and Charlie.

What a wonderful track.

Charlie - this is a brilliant piece of writing. It's powerful, it's exciting and it makes you want to play it over and over. The tune is just simple enough to stay with you after the track has finished and you find yourself singing it hours afterwards. This is one to copy and play in the car on the freeway.

Tom - I can see why you wanted to sing this one. Who wouldn't love to have a go at that song? And I must say, you did it justice. The vocal had the power that the song deserved, together with clever dynamics and lots of expression. Guitar was tasty too!

Super piece of collaboration, Guys.

ROG.

Hi Tommy/Charlie,

This sounds really good!
Rather heavy rock, but melodic. Just the way we like it.
Rob was waiting for a subtle (backing) vocal of Charlie whistle...
Anyway guys.... very well done!

Rob and Anne-Marie

Thanks everyone for taking time to listen and for the nice comments on the writing. There was actually very little for me to do on this as my inclusion was merely to arrange Tom Adams words into what I thought to be a Tom Adams style soundtrack. After submitting my arrangement to Tom he did what he does best --- he nailed it.

This song is testament to Tom's strong writing skills which I have admired for quite some time. I can also say I am thrilled with his mix, performance and most importantly, his graciousness in allowing me to have a small part in one of his productions.

Charlie

Charlie/Tom,

What a great listen!

Clever, clever write!

A stunning rock mix. The drums are a standout - superb fills - that one after the first chorus...nice! Each instrument stands on it's own and holds together as a "well oiled" band...

Tom - your best rock vocal (so far...looking foward to what happens in 2015).

Tasty guitar. The lead is both "familiar" and original - the perfect blend...

The chorus sounds like the Heartbreakers stepped off the Refugee album (one of my all time favorites) to help out... Loved that!

Great one, guys!

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

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
