Nice song! Great collaboration! As the song starts, I was instantly fascinated by beautiful guitar sound at the beginning, and immediately after that, I was fascinated by your voice. That mood continued throughout the song. I enjoyed it a lot.

Those first two rhymes told me this was gonna
be a BIG treat. "seen" "bernstein" How cool is
that? And then it continued with a host of great
lines and a super melody.

I agree with ROG that the drums are "wicked." Huge
sound.

And as Tom said "A nice little story of Dad's lesson of love
taught to his son. Great lyrics all the way through and a melody
that supports the feel. Good arrangement and very well sung.
Mix is spot on. It doesn't get much better than this."

Yep.

This has about every element one would dream up to define
a great song. The write and vocal are way up the chart. Way
up. But the fj signature big studio sound just knocks the whole
production out of the park. Janice and I have got to tour
that palatial studio some day.

Great collab guys!! A showcase within the user showcase of
what came come out of this community.

Thanks, Bud (and Janice)... appreciate the appreciation for "bernstein" smile ...and what a very nice review!... we are tickled pink smile smile

You have the ability to do a lot, without overdoing it. That is a real talent and gift.

Oh, and good job, Greg! Really enjoyed it!

Steve


Thanks, Steve. That kind of stuff is always nice to hear... and always good to see you come around....

I do want to say my personal opinion on one section (though I think they are all great)...that bridge is to die for! Man! The lyrics, the flow and the arrangement...in my opinion per-fec-tion!



Music to our ears! smile

I have to say that Floyd has done more for my confidence, knowledge, and musical inspiration than anyone in my life. He is the guardian angel of my musical self which is a huge part of who I am. Thanks so much my friend for the wonderful experience of working with you!

Take care all. Greg


Greg - Right back atcha, buddy! Your talent is only exceeded by your ever-present kindness and ecouragements... Looking forward to doing this again!!!!

Thanks, everyone, for all the nice comments... and for being a part of a truly wonderful community....

floyd and Greg,

I think I'm losing my mind! I was so sure that I'd responded to this post! Tonight, when I popped back for another listen, I discovered that I'm not in there.

This is a great song.... but then aren't all the songs that you both post! Is this greater than the rest? I don't know. What I do know, though, it that this is really friendly on the ears.

The hook is very inventive. I also love the lines "beauty's in the eye of the beholder with women an art". As I see it, this is really clever lyric writing. Adding the 'with' prepositional phrase takes what is essentially a cliche and parks it in new territory. As a result, there is nothing cliche sounding about the lines at all. I've made a note of this strategy smile I know I'll find a use for this somewhere along the way!

Also, the bridge does its job really well. The go/soul nearly-rhyme appealed to me. It left the lyrics of the bridge unresolved and then, when the musical interlude took over, the net result was that I was left pondering with all the imagery that you created playing in my head like a movie. The effect you have achieved with this pairing of words coupled with the musical break is, with all sincerity, outstanding.

All in all.... very, very enjoyable!
Noel

P.S. The overall sound is just "Wow!"... from top to bottom this is quality music!
