Hi All,

Here's something a bit loose and fun called Time Machine.

I wanna see through your abandoned eyes
So close the door on your time machine
I wanna float through our universe
So throw the switch on your time machine
 
I wanna swim in the Atlantic waves
And feel the sand run between our hands
I wanna write all those summer songs
So shine the sun on your time machine
 
I wanna breathe all your big words of love
So turn the dial on your time machine
I wanna keep all the coffee warm
So set the clock on your time machine
 
I wanna find an old black telephone
And hear your voice come across the line
I wanna talk till the sun comes up
So don’t hang up on your time machine
  
I wanna see my story in your eyes
So take me back on your time machine
I wanna find all the yesteryears
So break the glass on your time machine

Man, you are on a roll lately!

Really good, Bob, has your signature sound with those great, distinctive vocals.

Bob, Another good one! I really like your harmony vocal on this one. Drums are nice and upfront. Again you have created a poetic write with lots of room open to the listener for interpretation. Your unique sound never gets old to these ears, Tom

Cool song.

The mix seemed exceptionally hot in the low and mid end. It was roaring a bit in the speakers here. I normally can listen to everyone's music without having to grab the knobs.... this needed to be lowered a bit .


Anyway... good writing.

Wow - you nailed this! I'm getting some really nice nostalgic type vibes on this one. The harmonies you did on this are fantastic, too! The arrangement is awesome, and your vocals really cut through and are attention grabbing.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Floyd,

Thanks - much appreciated.

I generated multiple versions of that rhythm guitar and then picked the best pieces for the solo part. So great to be able to do that. smile

Bob,

This song IS the time machine. I love how all of your songs take me back to the village and NYC. I always feel like I AM back in the day, and having such a blast.

One of the first ones that hit me this way was "Woodstock" which is one of my all time favorites.

When I close my eyes and listen to one of your tunes I can see myself going in a time machine back to Greenwich Village in 1968 and Lou Reed and Nico are sitting at some cafe outside in sunglasses.

Great artistry.
