I try not to post songs so close together in time, but this one fell together so I just let it happen.

I wrote this song in 2007 but I've never recorded it. At the time I wrote it I was convinced that I had moved on from her; but I know now that I never will. So many songs that I have written are about her...

As played on guitar the verses are in 6/4 on the up beat, and the chorus is 4/4. But I managed to work it out and record it in a reggae style with BIAB. (By some fit of manipulation and magic.)

Realtracks: 1153 Bass; ReggaeClassic^1 drums; 1154 Guitar; 587 Sax; 1156 Piano; 1155 Organ; 1949 piano; 1410 piano, synth; 2155 piano electric.

Tangle With Love (8-1-2007)

My heart is fine I tell ya, I’ll be all right yes sir
It’s just another leg on, leg on life’s journey
A wild ride not a, final destination
I can’t hide from the, from the realization

I had a little tangle with love, I should
Know by now I just can’t fool around with love
I had a little tangle with love
And it left me just a little confused

A heart unbound like a, like a rose petal
A world unkind but I, no I won’t settle
I’ll put myself out there, every time I will
I will tare down, all the walls I build
I had a little tangle with love, I should
Know by now I just can’t fool around with love
I had a little tangle with love
And it left me more than a little confused

It’s not a story about redemption, it’s not a tale about sorrow or regret
It may be a song about reflection, well I just don’t know yet

My heart is fine I tell ya, I’ll be alright yes sir
It’s just another leg on, leg on life’s journey

I had a little tangle with love, I should
Know by now I can’t fool around with love
I had a little tangle with love
But I can’t wait to tangle with love again

Different, and I really like it. Your vocals are spot on. I found the drums a bit disconcerting but I think that has more to do with the meter of the song than anything.
The song seemed to have a Zak Brown vibe to me which is good thing.

Overall, one of my favorites from you so far.

Enjoyed my listen, a lot. Going back for more.

Hi Lawrence,

That's a very good composition Lawrence. The Reggae style is quite refreshing!
We appreciate you not wanting to post several songs close together in time whistle.....
We're pretty sure the song's theme will resonate with lots of people.
Rob is no stranger to this kind of song grin

Thank you. I've wanted to use the Reggae style for some time now and this song was well suited for it.

I like everything about this! Super vocals and backing tracks put it over the top for me! I really liked that Reggae feel this one has and the lyrics were absolutely great!

Great work here!

Hi Lawrence.

The backing is wonderful, but what's even better is your vocal performance.

What a great track and at the same time, refreshingly different.

Had to listen again.

Really, really nice! Sounds a little like Huey Lewis does Reggae. (That's a compliment.)

Thanks for sharing it!

Hey Lawrence,

Love this one. Gotta love da reggae. Everyting irie, mon! Like Steve, I'm hearing a Huey Lewis influence as well - which is a very good thing. Your voice is distinctive.

Bob

Hi Lawrence ...

Reviews are short since my stroke. Typing isn't easy at the movement. Agree with Steve about the Huey Lewis hint in your voice. Very nice indeed!

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.

Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
