Haven't been very active lately, for various reasons. (We've been busy on the 90 dB 2015 Dive Bar World Tour, and preparing for the 90 dB 2016 Hospice World Tour) Hearing a lot of great stuff in the User Showcase. Thought I'd contribute a little song.

I used RT's almost everything, but I've lost the original .sgu file, so I don't know which ones. confused I love this program!


Regards,

Bob

Cold Cold World

©2015 Robert Randall Burke/BMI


City of Angels
She's livin' in her car
But this time next year
She's gonna be a star.
She's been waitin' tables
In some old Venice bar
She starts to think
She'll never get that far.

The old man in the corner
Has been where she is now
He'd like to give her comfort
But he just don't know how.

Oh, girl
It's a cold cold world
Yeah yeah yeah
It's a cold cold world
You put your best foot forward
Keep your nose to the stone
Give it everything you got
But the harder you try
The harder you fall
And baby, you'll fall a lot
Oh, girl
It's a cold cold cold world.

All along the Boulevard
The street of broken dreams
Where nothing is as golden as it seems
A thousand nameless people
Do a thousand closing scenes
That'll never play
On a thousand silver screens.

The old man on the corner
Has been where she is now
He'd like to give her comfort
But he just don't know how...so he says....

Oh, girl...
It's a cold cold world
Yeah yeah yeah
It's a cold cold world
You put your best foot forward
Keep your nose to the stone
Give it everything you got
But the harder you try
The harder you fall
And baby, you'll fall a lot
Oh, girl
It's a cold cold cold................ world.

"A thousand nameless people

Love that, Robert.

The whole lyric, actually... solid start to finish.

The build of instruments is terrific. Rocking! by the end... and super catchy. (I did want that ending guitar solo louder!!)..

A little Bruce, a little Billy, a bunch o' Bob...

I'm thinkin' I75 may have found their opening act...

Great listen. And it gets better with each one... Real LOUD.

Bob,

As floyd says
Quote:

So I played it loud with my back door open and got the cockerel and geese in the house behind me squawking, so the birds love it! (bird is British slang for women!)

great song and again as floyd I wanted the solo LOUDER

Anyway back for another listen

I always look forward to your posts and enjoy your songs. You were the first artist who caught my attention when I first started listening here on the forum. You're still one of my favorites. Good write, performance and production.

There's no mistaking your signature sound. Reverb dialed in!

I echo the things Floyd had to say. I too wanted the music up a bit, closer to the vocals and drums. Are those RDs? They're righteous.

Southern CA throughout. Solid write and a good story.

I love new and creative takes on old themes. I admire a
writer who can take a theme like this and breathe a ton
of new life into it. That is one clever, inventive and engaging
lyric.

That'd be enough for me to like the song but then comes
the vocal, the arrangement and the production that is
outstanding.

I don't want to define Americana but IMO this sits in the midddle
of that spectrum.

Classy!

Thanks Scott. I'm not happy with the mix either, but got tired of beating it to death, so I had to stop somewhere! grin
