Hello everyone,

The new song:

Pretty cries

Y'all will hear where the inspiration for this came from (not from personal experience though whistle ).

Just kidding. This was sort of an 'in between' solo project. I was experimenting with the melodist and it came up with something that sounded a bit like Rockabilly. Then I thought: 'why not change the chord sequence a little and add some Rockabilly RTs. That worked out nicely.
On top of that I added the Brent Mason Spaghetti Western soloist which I never used before, neither heard anywhere on the forum.
This song has been on the shelf for a couple of months. I created the video a couple of days ago. Check it out, it´s good for a few laughs.
All comments are welcome.
Rob

Lyrics:

all day I'm wondering where she could be found
the girl from the pictures, the girl from around
a desert of loneliness here in this place
i'm waiting for your sweet embrace

cause ooh baby that love gets me high
you should be somewhere nearby
tonight baby I would pay that price
for hearing those pretty cries

all day I'm wondering why nights are so cold
not getting much younger not feeling too old
still I'm so lonesome I fear I would die
if faith and love won't send you by

cause ooh baby your kisses they burn
it's time to love you in return
cause now I can see what they meant
by paying those 'higher rents'

I would shoot the moon I would run for miles
I would tie you up I would bring you down
just to have you around.....

Chorus

I enjoyed it! It's a little dark, seductive, but I thought it was well put together, while a bit risque! Arrangement and vocals/mix are top notch as usual! Take care. Greg

Great Job.
Nice job on the lyrics.
The guitar fill tied this song together nicely.
Liked the last chord on the finish.

Interesting song and way different from what we normally hear from you. Quite unique. Excellent mix, performance and arrangement.

Enjoyed my listen.

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie,

As with all your music, this is terrific to listen to. The mix, the arrangement and the performance all add together to give 10/10. 'Outstanding' is one word that consistently springs to mind when I hear (and watch) your work.

These lyrics are quite different from your usual ones. Normally your writing style is more along the lines of free verse poetry. While such impressionistic lyrics have their own beauty, I am out of my comfort zone when it comes to commenting on them. This time around, I enjoyed the additional attention given to rhymes and the lyric flow that resulted as a consequence of them.

My favourite line was "a desert of loneliness here in this place". The phrase, "desert of loneliness" is an excellent metaphor. It conjures up a very vivid image.

All the best,
Noel

Wow, What a pair of -- eyes. Sounds good. Those real tracks are so cool. Nicely mixed and once again perfectly sung. Another good one. What a pair- you and A-M that is. Tom

I think you did a great job of setting up the nervous energy that the lyrics convey IMHO.

Well - THAT - was different! Did someone sing about the stars coming out tonight? blush Unusual song that was masterfully written and performed.

Did you use a different approach to mixing? Still sounds "radio ready" but different somehow but my ears are not trained enough to discern what the difference is.

An interesting write. What interested me most about it was how much it was "an RnAM song" - your signature sound - not just production, but writing and vocal stylings, as well..

Good mix. The guitar solo seemed a bit "stretched".

Hi RnAM. Fascinating! Kept wondering what was going to happen next in the video and the quivery guitar solo suited the quivery video so well. Great atmosphere. Cheers.

What the heck. The cage needs rattling every
now and then. Very different, risqué only by
a 1940's lens, film noir debuts at the forum; all
come to mind.

Y'all can do such disparate productions and
yet somehow always retain the RnAM stamp
of signature and excellence.

Also a plus one on the line Noel singled out.

In a word, "Cool."
