When you get to the point that you can't keep your words straight, ya need some help!

So... I asked a few folks to help me out with this one.
World-wide audience participation....

Finland, Pennsylvania, South Africa, California, The Netherlands, Florida, England, North Carolina, Australia, New York, Lousiana, New Zealand, Georgia (US, not Russia)...

In the crowd...
Dani
Kenny (44kfl)
Joanne
Rob (RnAM)
Anne-Marie
Greg
Tom
ROG
Charlie
Herb
Noel
Bob (rsdean)
Josie
RichMac
Janice
Bud

Some folks sent 2 or 3 tracks. In all, there are 32 "audience" tracks.
It was the most difficult mixing I've experienced - but, hugely fun!

A HUGE BIG THANK YOU to all who came to the bar to help me out!


As always, thanks to the BAND!
Style is _CNTRYSH.STY (Country Shuffle w Piano )

TAKE ME DRUNK


by the time someone brought it to my attention
i was four beers past my sober intentions
three hours ago i phoned
and promised i'd be home
i'm sure she's sitting there planning my lynchin'

i couldn't leave until the last strike was thrown
and then someone filled the jukebox up with jones
when the bartender gave last call
i knew i'd stayed too long at the ball
anyone seen my wallet, my keys or my phone?

(chorus)
   take me drunk, i'm home
   i'll never find it on my own
   i break a promise every time i find this stool
   take me drunk, i'm home
   take the one boot i've still got on
   try to kick some sense into this drunken fool

i've tried so hard to be the man that she deserves
i just stopped after work for one to calm my nerves
but one turns into ten
i'm falling down again
the straight-and-narrow is filled with dangerous curves

repeat chorus

heck... do it again...



Also... a special thanks to ALL the folks who PARTICIPATE in the forum.
If we all just came here and dumped our songs without actually being a part of things, then every song in the list would show 0 replies - and this (wonderful) forum would simply die. And what a shame that would be. This is a great community...

Drinks on me!

Wow, Floyd... this is a seriously creative project! I love:

1) the playful rhymes...

2) the concept of group participation, which worked very well in this song!

3) The beat and cadence of the song is just perfect for a drinkin' song! I'd love to watch the crowd response to this song if you played it live!

Kudos to you for your usual creative home run, and to all the participants who helped to turn it into a community building effort as well as a truly enjoyable piece o' work!

Hi Floyd,

what a fun project! I like the lyrics and arrangement
and I love that choir starting at 3:12. I've played that countless times imagining all the people singing who I know from the forum. Like Pat said a community building effort.
Thanks for your remarks on the forum. But people who it concerns won't read it anyway.
Thanks for brightening up my Good Friday.

Those 32 tracks audience tracks made this extreeee good! It sounded like it was in a live barroom situation.




Nice work all the way around. Glad to be a part of it.

Hey Floyd.

A superbly frivolous bit of fun, but a seriously good song at the same time.

Thanks for inviting me to participate - loved doing it, even though I'm not a big drinker!

Didn't envy you the mixing job.

Cheers, ROG.

floyd,

This is seriously good! Great writing, great arranging, great producing and all wrapped in a stellar performance! The limerick rhyme scheme is a perfect choice for these lyrics. And that line, "the straight and narrow is full of dangerous curves", is inspired lyric genius at its best. There are many possibilities in those words.

Thank you for including me in the bar scene! What you've done with all of our voices is spectacular.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. I agree! It's a great forum.

Dam it Floyd how long were you spying on me?

A usual another masterly told story by the kind of story tellers Floyd.

Another winner with lots of other winners singing along.

Great job.

Floyd and his choir.

Seriously great. Genius in fact. What a sensational concept, and how well did you all pull that off.

Yes, very, very well done. Congratulations team.

Hi Floyd, another good song !
The multi-participatory concept is awesome, but instead of a final choir, I think a meddley with people singing one after the other could be even better.

Cheers
Pascal
