Just For One Day

Simple and happy song this time, another one fitting Miira's voice nicely. The chorus melody sounds bit familiar to me, but I haven't figured out what it could be, maybe you can enlighten me, or tell me that my song is original enough smile Comments welcome as always smile

RealDrums: Rock16thsSync, ChoirClaps (made by Floyd?)
RealTracks:
Electric bass #2755
Acoustic guitar #362, #365, #2677
Electric guitar #2756, #2761, #1719, #2635
Electric guitar solo #1705
Resonator guitar #2626
Organ #689

Vocals: Miira

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017


Lyrics:

Why am I doing this to myself?
Why do I keep coming here once again?
Stuck in routines in this bad job
I keep on turning this tedious knob.

Cut my chains, shake me babe
just for one day
show me there is another world
no barriers blocking on the way.
like playful cubs
let's fool around
make me feel
like I'm not bound
just for one day
then back to my old life
back to decay
but a smile on my face.

Why am I doing this to myself?
why am I bending to your will again?
stuck in your grip in this wedlock
from breakfast to bedtime I live by your clock.

[Chorus]

Let's defy the laws and gods' will
just for one day out of standstill
life rollercoaster up and downhill
on our glory day.
Through the walls, the blaze of fire
unrestrained rising higher
"no contracts" sings an angel choir
just for one day
for one day.

Why am I doing this to myself?
why am I hooked again and again?
stuck like an addict in bad habits
junk food and booze no means to quit.

[Chorus]

----------

Janne

Wow, you nailed this! Right from the first few bars, it's really attention-grabbing. I loved the groove, and found it pleasantly catchy smile I really enjoyed how the lyrics paint a picture too.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Very nice lyric, arrangement and vocals -- the whole package works well.

The mix sounds really good on our monitors.

Like Deryk said "right from the first few bars it's really attention getting."

Kudos!!

PS Love the dobro. Good use of that RT!

I enjoyed this uptempo country rocker - a very nice choice of RT`s (and the handclaps!).
I don`t know about the chorus, but the verses reminded me of Richard Thompson`s Back Street Slide.
Well done.

Excellent delivery from every angle.

I really liked the driving beat you've managed to capture, and the choice of resonator guitar sits so well in the mix.

Miira's vocals are superb.

Great job, no question.

Thanks Robert for commenting and enjoying smile The song you mentioned is new to me but yes, I can hear some resemblance in the rhythm of the verse melody in the Thompson's song.

The vocals match so well with the style of the song! I can definitely see this song being on the radio! Perfect for just cruising around aimlessly with friends.

Thanks for sharing!

Hello, Janne

A very fun song!
Mira's vocal is wonderful.
The chord progression that is not normally used in country songs is properly used, and that is very interesting.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi
