A simple song... a fairly simple production. (Perhaps a bit cliche).
Hope you enjoy it. But if you don't... you're welcome to say why (not)...

It'll Come To me

RealTracks.
RealTracks in song: 366:Bass, Electric, Country Ev 065

Floyd,

Two things always hit me, your story-telling lyrics and your crystal clear voice.
Great again.
Boom da-da boom, boom da-da boom, love the base addition to the overall beat of
the piece. Its an integral part of the song.

Also the touches of harmony in your song was nice for me.

Naturally, I like the Piano in your work.

Thanks for sharing! I only listened to it three times.

I loved it... moves right along, catchy, radio-ready, maybe car music, etc. No criticism whatsoever about the musicality or the mix -- loved the harmonies.

The thing that bothered me about the content, or the story, was that I couldn't figure out why the guy was so confident and upbeat about how this romance thing was gonna work out...what did he have up his sleeve, or wherever he keeps it? Most guys who are tongue-tied tend to stay that way -- was he maybe counting on his friend Jim Beam? Maybe there's some subtlety or complexity that I just didn't get, but....

I liked the "tip of my heart" metaphor and have once used it myself.

Great work, as usual.

Cool song...I really liked how to fit in some of the lyrics...reading ahead, I was anticipating "eloquently" coming out as an awkward "eloquentLY", but you wove it in beautifully so that it was sung on the natural accent. And your line about "tip of my heart"--very inventive! Thanks for sharing this.

Frank, eric, Don, Steve, Tommy,

Thanks for listening and for the positive comments. I thought this was "kinda ok", so the "more positive tone" of the comments is a nice surprise.

Brad,

If you look again at the lyric, it's not that he's "tongue-tied" - it's that the things he's tried/said so far haven't done it, so he'll keep trying until they do.

This song was actually written about writing song (and trying to get them recorded). An unrequited love song to the music business. I've ALWAYS hated songs where the writer actually talks about writing songs (Barry Manilow's "I Write The Songs" being the classic offender). I was thinking about the fact that I had (obviously) not yet "said it right" (written something so "perfectly" that it gets recorded). But I wasn't ready to give up - and would continue to search for that perfect combination of words/melody that would be undeniable.
Believing that eventually..."It'll Come To Me". And, although it still hasn't happened,
I still haven't given up...

Tano,

Glad to see you mention the "fit" of "eloquently". It's my favorite thing about this song.

Excellent all around!

It's interesting that you should pick on "I Write the Songs", because that song isn't really about being a songwriter or the process of writing songs at all. Have a closer listen to the lyrics, or just check out Wikipedia.
Quote:

Manilow was initially reluctant to record the song, stating in his autobiography Sweet Life: "The problem with the song was that if you didn't listen carefully to the lyric, you would think that the singer was singing about himself. It could be misinterpreted as a monumental ego trip."

These are the kind of songs that make me say "Man, I hate you" because you wrote it an I didn't. Extremely well done. The way the lyrics have a flow to them.... I can hear maybe a group like Lady A doing that song, or a solo like Chesney or Travis. And we can all say we knew you (and Pickles) back when....

+1 I like it. Eloquently done Floyd.

Much more optimistic than my little rant idea back when - "Sorry I Have To Pass On Your Love". LOL!

What they said. Very enjoyable and nice mix -- and if sounds good on my KRK monitors it'll sound good anywhere!

Very nicely done, puts me in mind of Brooks and Dunn. Nicely mixed and performed! Thanks for sharing!

SD, Guenter, Josie, John, Robert - thanks for the nice comments.

David - my apologies to Bruce Johnston (and God, I guess - I am not apologizing to Barry). I still say they need to write about something other than songwriting...

eddie - man.. I love that you hate me. Can't think of a better compliment. BTW, if you run in to any of those people - feel free to pitch it to them - we could work out a publishing deal for ya.

Bud - that's good to know... now, if you want to send those KRK's my way, I could send you a shipping address...

Hi Floyd,

This song is every bit as good as all your others. It sounds professional on absolutely every level.

What really appealed to me was the way you colored the hook, "It'll come to me", with the verses' lyrics. In verse 1, the hook amplified the notion of "melt her resistance and win her heart" whereas in verse 2, the amplification resulted in making the phrase "golden key" stand out (at least to me) as a symbol for finding love. Because of this, there was definitely an increase in emotional intensity as the song progressed. Really well done!

All the best,
Noel

P.S. The rhyme "golden key" and "eloquently" is genius!

This is really great. Very natural sounding, but hooky, nice melody, good vocals and production. Nice lyrical touches like "tip of my heart." Not sure what he's been doing lately, but I could hear Collin Ray doing a nice job on this.

Thanks,
Bruce
