Hey, J! C'mere!!!
Let's notch another genre in that musical belt of yours.
Big...Anthem...Get yer Martina on!..
Ready?


FORGED BY FIRE

lashing out ...we fight
making love... we set things right
the passion we share is a double-edged sword
it tears us apart and binds us for evermore

   forged by fire
   hearts welded together
   by desire... beyond our control
   it's sometimes hotter.. than we can handle
   tempers flare... our touch grows cold
   but we hold on... through thick or thin
   our love survives... and in the end
   it's stronger than steel or stone
   forged by fire

it's sometime wild... it's sometimes war
it's surely love... but it's something more
in each others' arms... sharing one soul
when feelings this deep get ignited
they light our way or they explode

   forged by fire
   hearts welded together
   by desire... beyond our control
   it's sometimes hotter.. than we can handle
   tempers flare... our touch grows cold
   but we hold on... through thick or thin
   our love survives... and in the end
   it's stronger than steel or stone
   forged by fire

fire and ice...a double-edged sword
passion tears us apart and binds us for evermore

   forged by fire
   hearts welded together
   by desire... beyond our control
   it's sometimes hotter.. than we can handle
   tempers flare... our touch grows cold
   but we hold on... through thick or thin
   our love survives... and in the end
   it's stronger than steel or stone
   forged by fire
   forged by fire
   forged by fire

floyd and Janice,

What an incredibly rich and vibrant sound! I don't know how you do it but I have no idea how any production could get better than this.... all I could think as I was listening... was.... "This is so-o-o-o-o-o good!"

I'm in awe.

Regards to you both,
Noel

P.S. I was in a hurry to secure top reply position in the thread. It's such a rare event these days. I'll be back later to work my way through understanding this song a bit more thoroughly. What a great musical creation!

Well done you two, this is a corker!
Not only a strong song, but superbly executed with passion, so it hits the 'shiver button'. Great stuff.

Thank you Noel. This was waaaaay out of Janice's blues comfort zone but she was game! I'm sure she will be commenting soon.

WOW!!! That just plain works! From the first guitar lick (I'm guessing that's the loop-sounds custom for the song), the music and lyrics combine for an exciting, electric, musical journey. The Hornsby style piano is a perfect fit. AND, of course, the vocals/mix are superb. Kudos to all!!! Take care. Greg

This one is so good. Love the opening , the title, the lyrics that explain the title , the choice of instruments with nothing getting in the way of one another, the mix, the drum sound, and of course both voices. Janice can sure sing lead but she also has a natural gift for harmony. This one almost sounds like a second melody. We've all heard this phenomenon before with some of the great harmonizing groups. I suspect that the harmony was particularly challenging due to the stop and go phrasing. An excellent listen. floyd, you're like a river of great songs. It just keeps flowing. Great one. Tom

Wow,

Awesome recording and song! Forged by Fire evokes a powerful uplifting anthem feel that I don’t hear often enough celebrating a love connection that grows overcoming difficulties together. Your lyrical metaphors, melody and harmony blend together really well to support the song’s hook/title. Thanks for sharing.

Atze

Really, really cool!
We love the heavy guitars coming in in the chorus.
Very professional use of the RTs Floyd. We know that for you it's something like driving without touching the wheel laugh.
We love the vocal harmony, especially on the choruses.

Just a thoroughly professional song, sound and performance.

Tommy can express my thoughts better than I. So I just quote. I'm impressed. Brent's ballad lead is so versatile. It sounds like made for this song.
This one is a winner again.

Hey I really like this. It reminds me of Bob Seger, musically and lyrically. Great backing vocals Janice.

The write and performance are incredibly strong, but I think the treble is a little too high on this particular track, don't know why. Most of your other tracks have a very rich sound and a wide dynamic range. I am not sure if this was overcompressed or what, but the high end really sticks out.

I love the song though. Wonderful write as always.

Hi Floyd.

I do like songs with a big sound and this is REALLY big. I took your advice and wound it up nice and loud on the big Tannoys - absolutely fantastic.

I like everything about this track and having Janice in there is the icing on the cake.

Good to see you doing some stadium rock - it suits you!

ROG.

PS. Nice to see a solo included!

You've achieved your aim.
I did note that the male vocal is a little subordinated by the female - the female cuts through the mix more. The male voice, a little smokier and rounded, sits back just a little. Maybe a little EQ, a slightly wider panning or, shock horror but useful to cut through a mix, a touch of BBE sonic maximiser?
fabulous stuff regardless of my quibbling.

Tense, tight, word perfect, with a storyline as true and as
old as love itself. Sung to a ‘great rock beat, ‘what a formula
A 'Top drawer' one Floyd, it thoroughly deserves all the accolades it is, and will still receive.
