I was kind of in a Beatles mood when I wrote this a couple of days ago. Hope somebody enjoys it

You never could imagine
You were the center of attraction
To me you were a queen

Then we ended up together
With a love to last forever
But lately I have seen


That there's a longing in your eyes
Telling what your voice denies

Isabel you'd never leave me
But you never tell me that you need me
You have learned to hide your feelings oh so well
You have a dream that you must follow
Of a fairytale promised tomorrow
You hope it will come true but only time will tell

You said you couldn't help but wonder
What's left to be discovered
If you could just be yourself

You’ve given more than taken
Now you've been awakened
To desires you've never felt

What could I do to keep your love
Oh would it ever be enough

Torrey,

This is outstanding. The sound, your singing, your melody, your lyrics, everything, they're all superb.

When I opened the thread, I immediately clicked on the Soundcloud link. I do this because I always like listening to songs without any preconceived ideas that often find their way into my thinking if I read the back story beforehand. I always read what the composer has written after I hear the song.

Because of my above process, I had no idea that this was conceived in a 'The Beatles' frame of mind and, as I sat listening, I kept thinking thoughts like: "This sounds just like it's one of The Beatles songs"; "He's really captured The Beatles sound, their arrangement style, their melody and chords really, really well"; "definitely The Beatles"; etc.

Then, after listening, when I returned and read what you'd written, I discovered your reference to The Beatles. I have to say, you channelled them incredibly well! You've captured the musical flavour of this iconic group perfectly! Outstanding.

I thoroughly enjoyed your track... start to end.

All the best,
Noel

Torrey,
The intro threw me until I read your Beatles inspiration - its clever and the drums coming in are totally Ringo!
The whole idea is followed through extremely well and the arrangement has polish - can`t think of a better word, its so well crafted.
Your voice sounds different on this song, but then the whole sound is unlike anything I`ve heard from you before.
I almost forgot to say -the song is very catchy!
Well done.

Robert

Hi Torrey,

Everybody has already said what I was thinking. But I'll repeat some of it as it's deserved.

Perfect channeling of the Beatles. Sounds like something from their 1964-1965 era. Everything about this is so danged good. What a treat! You never fail to amaze me with your productions. Love the tempo change and near acapella about 2/3 through. Fantastic work!

Alan

To me, it has a strange sort of Bowie like vocal and a Genesis feel. Certainly UK 70's. Lou Reed? Most enjoyable.

Absolutely excellent work.

Yes, Beatles influence, but also Freddy Mercury could be in there somewhere.

The vocal quality is sensational, and has assisted to lift the production to a very high standard.

Not a weak link anywhere.

Most enjoyable, yes, absolutely.

WOW! Torrey...

This is STUNNINGLY good! An extraordinary piece of writing - lyrically and (especially) musically.

The arrangement and production are absolutely Top Notch. And the vocals are every bit a match for that...

You must have spent considerable time getting the drums to do those long fills? Incredibly well done!

This is one of the best pieces that have ever been presented here (and that is saying a lot!)

A truly GREAT listen!!!

A big ZOWIE.

I’m currently on holidays in the US (looking forward to a Maine lobster tonight) so not ideal for listening on poor wifi on the iPad but given the reaction I had to listen. Truly amazing stuff. The Brian May guitar sound was superb as was the whole composition.
Excellent work.

back again, had to hear it a few more times

if we had a hall of fame for songs posted here,

this should go in immediately

it's a super recording of a tremendously good song

on todays listen I hear the drum sounds of Ringo on

early John Lennon solo career songs - powerful.

I still hear Jeff Lynne doing his Lennon voice

I love this kind of song and sound so much

thanks for sharing with us

Kenny

This has really classic pop rock sound, melody and chording. A 60's and 70's type of song somewhere between the Beatles-ELO-Squeeze. The mixing of drums is fantastic and vocals are great, cool guitar playing. Song to be played loud smile

Hey Torrey very cool intro. The beat at the first was very interesting. Loved when you jumped into the first lyric. Super vocal. Excellent job. Guitars were superb

Yep, Brian May meets the Beatles!

It's all been said.

I especially appreciated the dynamics, if that is the right word.
The music moves, goes someplace, bobs and weaves, riveting.

Well Torrey, not being a big fan of rock music ever and being the Beatles the ones I really cared back then I sure dig this song. Very well put together and definitely with huge Brit sound to it.

Wow Torrey.
This is a real retro Beatles meet ELO tune.
Really sounds like George Harrison to me.
I would be so proud of this.
Great production and performance.
