The Right Track (VIDEO)
The Right Track (AUDIO ONLY)


As Steve Earle once said "sometimes your hometown brings you down..."

I wrote the lyric; floyd tweaked it, turned a third verse into a bridge, created the melody and Janice did her vocal thing. Thanks big time to floyd for helping with the mix, BGV's and the use of held chords.

We appreciate your time to watch/listen and as always comments are most welcome!

Janice: lead vocal
floyd: background vocals
Bass: RT 1036 Northern Rock
Drums N’ville ev 8th
Guitar Solo: RT 1167 Rock Ballad Brent (the intro was comped from two of many re-generations as was the solo).
Guitar Electric Rhythm: RT 841 Rhythm Pop Ballad Slow Gritty
Guitar electric Rhythm: RT 1169 Soloist Rock Medium Brent /used to create held held chords via the held option
Guitar Acoustic Rhythm: RT 1037 Rhythm Northern Rock Ballad
Piano Rhythm: RT 1725 Rhythm / also used to create the held chord piano track

Mixed in Logic Pro X using Ozone (mastering) Alloy 2 and Nectar.

The Right Track
© 2016 Bud Merritt and floyd jane

too long in this town, too long in shadow
roads lead out, where do they go?
this might be someone's idea of good old days
not mine
i'm parting ways

Chorus

i'm leaving
some might think on a wing and a prayer
but there's got to be peace
between here and somewhere
sun on my face, wind at my back
i'm finally... on the right track

day by day, time gets shorter
while my bucket list just runs over
some things age well like a fine old wine
but a spirit chained
will die in time (so...)

Chorus

Bridge

friends say slow down don't go
but what the hell could they know
i got boots older than most of them
and I ain't leaving on a whim

Chorus


J&B

Thank you very much Joe for the kind remarks. Yes, we created the video using iMovie. I enjoy photo editing and use a variety of apps to try and get the images to have a similar look and to support the imagery of the song. All of the images we use are public domain or shots that we took ourselves.

Thanks again!

Like Alyn, I immediately fell in love with the "boots" line. This is a great production (really like the video too). Guitar solo fits so sweetly, and I love the resolution of the chorus. Great stuff!! Take care. Greg

Rockin' greatness y'all. Great job!!!! Absolutely love it.

Who is this Floyd Jane guy though? Seems like a suspicious character. Is he easy to work with?

I "discovered" this a while ago - it now has the feel of one of those songs you know & look forward to when it plays.
It has a great melody, and is beautifully performed. Love everything about it.

Bud Janice and Floyd,

You have really excelled yourselves on this one! I liked everything about it.
Great production and sound and catchy melody.

Janice your voice is like velvet and when Floyd joins in for the harmonies it's just stunning.

I also loved Floyd's vocal sound on the "don't go" bit near the end.

Superb,
Rec

Good work guys, solid standing arrangement, cool lyrics and a beautiful vocal of Janice. We especially liked the choruses, Floyd does a great job here with a subtle mixed harmony, which has some very interesting notes in it.
Bud, these lyric videos seem to come more and more easy to you, nice one!

Alyn, we always look forward to your posts and your comments on ours. Glad you liked that line - it's something I've said for years about our younger friends wink

Thanks for mentioning the vocals and particularly for mentioning floyd's BGV's. He did a great job!

We appreciate it!

Nice job to all.

Good job on the songwriting.

The production was pretty good too. I like the comped solo/fills. Mostly they are tasty and fit nicely.

Excellent.
