It's been a crazy couple of months since I have been able to check in here! I plan on getting caught up with listening to some of the great songs I know I've been missing over the next few days.

Just wrote this one. All the instruments are RT's/RD's. The female "oooh's" are East/West samples, and the rest of the vocals are me (cheap labor). Hope you enjoy it...

Oh, No (He's In Trouble)

Oh, No (He's In Trouble)
© Stephen W. Young

He was prone to wander. Not the settling kind
Had it all together. Just looking for a good time
He saw her in the corner
She was the prettiest thing he'd seen
Then he made a fatal mistake
When he asked her "what's your name"

Oh, no, he's in trouble. He better get out of here
She's about to set her trap for him. That's very clear
She'll have him bringing her flowers, and shopping for hours
And watching the romance films
Oh, no, he's in trouble. But I'm afraid it's too late for him

I was hanging around one night. The band just finished a set
I saw her sitting there alone, and said "I don't think we've met"
She looked at me and blinked her eyes
And said the sweetest thing
And before I knew it
I was looking for a ring

Oh, no, I'm in trouble. Don't want to get out of here
She set her trap for me. That's very clear
She's got me bringing her flowers, and shopping for hours
And watching the romance movies
Oh, no, I'm in trouble. And I know it's too late for me

Now there's nothing more persuasive
Than a woman with a made up mind
You can try to resist her
It's just a matter of time

Oh, no, he's in trouble. He better get out of here
She's about to set her trap for him. That's very clear
She'll have him bringing her flowers, and shopping for hours
And watching the romance films
Oh, no, he's in trouble. But I'm afraid it's too late for him

Oh, no, I'm in trouble. Don't want to get out of here
She set her trap for me. That's very clear
She's got me bringing her flowers, and shopping for hours
And watching the romance movies
Oh, no, I'm in trouble. And I know it's too late for me

Hi Steve,

Totally loved it! That intro is a real attention grabber - especially the drum. Great country sound. This is really good stuff, Steve. How about a little more of ot soon?

Loved that bridge ... a perfect fit. I only use a bridge when absolutely necessary and think you nailed it. Great song and performance!

What a tune, Stephen! This one caught my ear right from the first second, all the way through to the end. It is wonderfully catchy, and the arrangement is seriously on point!

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Thanks, Alan. I don't always do bridges either, but I felt like this one needed it. Glad you like it!

Nice write, Steve. Terrific commercial sound to this.

Excellent BAND. Excellent mix. Excellent vocals. All hallmarks of your work - always...

You always open my eyes to RTs I haven't used before - that bass on this one... (stealing that, for sure...)

Great listen. I could hear Lyle Lovett doing this...

What a great choice of RT's. We were immediately grabbed by how cohesive the "band" sounded. BiaB and talent are indeed formidable.

It's a great catchy write that makes you want to immediately listen again. And the vocal performance is a wonderful complement to the melody.

And you wrapped it all up in a, in our opinion, perfect production for the song. Your vocal is out front and it well deserves that position. Nice.

Enjoyed it and will continue to do so.

Thanks so much, Ember! Totally meant this song "tongue in cheek". I've been in "trouble" for over 41 years with one of the most wonderful women to ever live, and wouldn't have it any other way! Really appreciate your comments!

Well done as always Steve! +1 to all that's already been said - such a pro sounding production and fun song.

I'm so glad to hear you on here - I was concerned about you during hurricane Harvey.

Steve,

you may know the album "next big thing" by Vince Gill.
There's one song in particular that this song reminds me of, what was it again...
Oh, I remember: she never makes me cry (or something).
Anyway, you get the idea.

Cool!

Rob

Hello, Steve

Very nice intro! Very catchy!
Very splendid and pleasant vocal!
It reminds me of Presley or some pop singer who played an active part in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
The mixing is really wonderful.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Thanks so much, Kenny! I was a fan of JJ Cale's music, and I've always thought Don Williams had one of the great Country voices. Two very influential talents. I appreciate your very kind words, and consider them a very high compliment.

Nice song. I like the groove. Catchy chorus and great story. So much truth in this one. They sure can be trouble but we like that in a woman lol.
