Tom - appreciate all that. Glad that "Cowboy" stuck with you (those are favorite lines of mine, too). And..what a nice thing to say...Merry Christmas to you, too!

Fred - Thanks. The piano is one of the SuperMidi tracks - 2066:Piano, Rhythm NewAgeAnswers Ev16 110 - my favorite - I've used it on a bunch of different type songs (It was use in Real Live Cowboy as well). It changes a lot as you re-gen it. This track was a comp of about a dozen different generations.


Guenter - thank you. you are always most complimentary...


Pat - Thanks for the wow(s). ("Choking" was actually fairly similar to this, but you may not have been around for that one)

I just searched for CHOKING and listened to it. You're right, I missed it the first time around... otherwise I would have posted a comment. It's a very nice song too, with some great lines. But I like this one even more. This one hits harder. I like this piano better, and the sad chords advance the theme of the lyrics.

I would love to hear this one sung by a female. I think that would ramp up the emotional payload quite a bit.

... but where on earth would you ever find any talented female singers who would be willing to take a stab at it....?

Or you could just say I am a man. There are women in the Navy. I suppose guys feel those emotions too.

Richard - thanks for the thumbs...

eric - thanks so much for that...

Pat - thanks... there was actually some discussion....

Josie - I've done this in this manner for so very long - written about '79 I think? Figure I'd give it the BIAB treatment to see how it stood up...

Thanks, Bob...

Stunning!!!!!
Get a hold of Jennifer Warnes - Quick! (I'm thinking "Famous Blue Raincoat" album here.
As superb as this is, I would really like to hear this sung my a woman. Its already a wonderful piece of imaginative writing, arranging and singing but imagine it with a female voice. It would be a ShowStopper.
Happy Christmas, Floyd
Ian

Floyd, Strong song and well done. It's distracting to me though to hear a male voice sing a song written from a women's perspective.

floyd,

I listened to this some time back and have just discovered that I didn't tell you how great it was. Lucky for me, though, Janice/Bud are much more eloquent that I could ever be. When they said ...

Quote:
Well, Mr jane as a songwriter I think you've pretty much set the piano on fire, walked off the stage, and left the next act cowering behind the curtains.


... if ever there was a comment that deserved a huge +1, this one has my vote.

Really, really good everything!!

All the best,
Noel

P.S. I think "Hold On" very clearly shows that the singer of a song does not have to be a character in the song - even when the lyrics are written in first person narrative. This is not something that I've thought about before.

In third person narrative, a listener can easily be told a story using she, he, they, (no "I" character) etc., and it works. As you were writing these lyrics, I suspect you seriously pondered whether or not to use this perspective. The problem with third person narrative is that it distances the lyrics and the listener becomes an observer rather than being actively involved in the words.

By using the first person narrative (he, him, I, (no "you" character)), the listener is pulled in and is more closely associated with the lyrics. This comes from the power of "I".

To my ears, much of the emotional punch of "Hold On" comes from the effect of using the character "I/me" but not (as in the large majority of songs) employing the singer to be this character. Yet another case of inspired, 10th dan black-belt songwriting!

So glad Noel revived this one as I missed it the first time round. Guess I was on holiday at the time. Really love it and has definitely inspired me to write something that will suit a lovely simple backing like this.
