It's been a while since I posted song. Life's been a bit on the busy side.

Here is my latest...



For Charlie Fogle and HearToLearn, I've also written down a full description of how I created the lyrics from scratch. I'm very much a person who follows method and the document I've assembled outlines that method fairly comprehensively. If anyone is interested, it's in the pdf at the following link. (I suggest reading the document after listening. That way, what you hear won't be coloured by my process.)

  • How the song developed (the process, pdf)
(link no longer valid)

The song was created in BIAB, developed in Realband, vocals added and mixed in Reaper, Melodyne used for harmony.

Feel free to critique any aspect: song, lyrics, singing, music, etc. All thoughts welcome.

Regards,
Noel

[A1]
Don't want to go and grab a cup of coffee
Don't want to go and get me polished up for work
All I want to do
Is to stay home lovin' you
Yeah, that's all I want to do

[A2]
Don't want to go and fight the mornin' traffic
Don't want to go and face another nine to five
All I want to do
Is to stay home lovin' you
Yeah, that's all I want to do

[B]
If you were a season
I know that you'd be summer
You make me glad I'm alive
And when I am with you
We're Harlequin and Columbine
I thank the Lord you're mine

[A3]
Don't want to go, you're the blue sky around me
Don't want to go, you are sunshine with a smile
All I want to do
Is to stay home lovin' you
Yeah, that's all I want to do
All I want to do

[8 bar instr.]

Repeat B & A3

[4 bar instr.]

[TAG]
All I want to do
Is to stay home lovin' you
Yeah, that's all I want to do
All I want to do
To spend each day here with you is all I ever want to do

Hi Noel

Nice to catch up on your work again. I enjoyed the gentle groove of this song, and after listening it stayed with me, making me play it again; there must be a subliminal hook in there! The tracks are a perfect match for the lyric, and the whole is perfectly engineered. An excellent job all round!
cool

This is so beyond cool! Wow! I am SO appreciative that you did this! To see your thoughts and techniques in action verses having to guess at what you did...priceless!

I hear a bit of the beatles, the turtles, and just all around a great song.

I will comment more after the weekend when I can sit down and read all of the notes!

This is SO my kind of thing. I can't even begin to express my excitement! Thank you!! smile

Hi Noel,

what a nice uplifting song! It made me tapping my feet all the time. Great vocal delivery, nice harmonies.
I especially like the chords of the B part.
The RTs sound like made for the song.
I enjoyed several listens a lot.

Dear Greg,

What a great little song, this theme would have fitted in within any year, 50s to 80s, and works today. Its good, its warm and nostalgic, it’s just plain fun. I expected a megaphone in there any moment. We need more of this in our lives.

Very nice Noel!

Love that steady beat, that country boogie sure works.
The feel and structure of the song makes me think of....
Gilbert O'Sullivan (and I really loved his songs).

Noel, With each new submission your vocal performance exceeds the last one. Really well sung. This again has that great uplifting feeling that you are so accomplished at achieving. The mix is very clear. I enjoyed the intertwined harmony near the end. Thanks for the corresponding pdf. I am sure there is much to learned there. A great song! Tom

Wonderful feel-good tune!! Reminds me of McCartney. Melodically, it works perfectly-constant motion and perfect resolution. Instrumentation and mix are wonderful. This is a gem!! Take care. Greg

Hey John,

Thanks for the visit! It's great to see you.

Subliminal? LOL... now there's thought for the next song. Maybe I'll be able to conquer the world! I just have to work out how to do it in audio. I think the stars were on my side with this one... now if only I could drive midi as expertly as you! That would be fantastic.

All the best,
Noel

Caaron,

Thanks smile As far as I can see, there's no point taking the stuff that I've picked up over the last few years to the grave with me (although, hopefully, that's not in the immediate future!). I hope you get some value from it.

I won't promise to give some background on all my writes, but, if I have a bit of time to spare, I'll definitely keep you and Charlie (and any others I mightn't know about) in the loop.

All the best,
Noel

We think Paul McCartney would be proud of this write, vocal and production...
We are reading his new bio this song immediately brought him to mind.

We've said it before and will again -- you are a master of this type of
production. Bouncy and upbeat and the world needs more of it!

Looking forward to reading the pdf....

Great listen and a fine addition to our SC playlist.
