SO, just for laughs I saw SongTradr was looking for a Neil Young replacement with a 24 hour turnaround. I said "Let me see how fast I can do this."

I do not pretend this is my best work, but it was two hours from seeing the request to posting the tune and I was laughing the entire time, so at least it was fun. Can we call March Neil Young songwriting month???

Harvest Moongirl

By David Snyder

Well I’m driving to Alabama
With a crazy look in my eyes
Don’t know if I’ll make it this evening
But maybe by sunrise

CH:

Cause I miss you baby
And the good life that we had
And I want your honey
You know I miss it bad
I miss it bad
I miss your honey
I miss it bad

Bridge

And when we climb aboard the silver spaceship
With the full moon in our eyes
Will you tell me that I’m the old man
Sing me a song that makes me cry
Will you talk about the needle
Or will you talk about the silver spoon
Will you dream about Laurel Canyon
Or will you dream about the Harvest Moon
The Harvest Moon
The Harvest Moongirl
The Harvest Moon
The Harvest Moongirl

V2

They don’t want me back in Canada
They say they’re glad that I am gone
They tell me I can’t sing at all
But I just wrote you this song

CH:

Cause I miss you baby
And the good life that we had
And I miss your honey
You know I want it bad
I want it bad
I want it bad
I miss your honey
And I want it bad

Tag:

So I’m driving to Alabama
With a crazy look in my eyes
I might not make it by this evening
But maybe by sunrise

David,

I saw that opportunity and wanted to put something together for it, but just didn't have the time. I think you hit the proverbial nail on the head. Sounds remarkably like NY. You're spot on with this. Your mixes are always so clean - no exception here. yeah - great song and perfect for the opportunity. Good luck!

Alan

Hi David

Amazing what you can do in 2 hours.
Wanders a bit.
Like Neil Young.
Very clever.

Cheers.

Two hours?! Man!!!

Brilliant the way you took pieces from various songs of his, added your own stuff, and made a totally new Neil Young song out of it.

I've been a fan of his ever since his Buffalo Springfield days, brilliant songwriter IMHO. His hometown, Omemee, is just about a 10 minute drive from where we live. He did a concert there last december, invite only though so no chance of getting to see him.

But, I digress! Great stuff David as usual, I enjoyed it.

Hilarious!

Always enjoy your hurry-up-and-get-er-done songs!

If you haven't read "Waging Heavy Peace" you need to. You and Neil could have some great conversations, no doubt...

This song was so funny! I can't believe you did it in two hours, though. That's so insane. I definitely wouldn't be able to do that, and I am so floored that you were able to. Very impressive considering the turnaround time.

Thanks for sharing!

Wow - very well done, David smile As others have mentioned, the Neil Young influence comes through strong on this one. Your vocal performance is so strong and sincere in this one. You almost force an intensive listen through your vocals. Not to mention, you came up with some outstanding lyrics on this one.

Great job - thanks for sharing!

"They don’t want me back in Canada

hahahahaha...perfecto.

Two hours? It takes me that long to drink enough coffee to just think about putting a new production together.

Alabama? Hey now, that got Skynyrd all fired up smile

Cool and two hours or two days...it's most excellent!

David,
You nailed the Neil vibe and intonation- very cool.We do still love him up here in the great white north!
Actually it would be fun to have a "theme month" on the forum...only your good self and Al can put something out in 2 hours though.

Hello, David

2 hours!
It is also important to write quickly.
However, it takes 2 hours including lyrics and recording, it is more than phenomenal.
You must be a genius.
An enjoyable "tribute" to Neil Young.

Best regards.

Hi David Snyder
I envy how you manage to sing words, in a way that your about to sing out of tune, and then the last second go for an epic moment, and make the vocals your own.

Good job....might be better with an instrumental bridge which modulates out of the key a little, and then back into the song. An enjoyable listen

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Very nice David. Did it get forwarded? If not it should have been. So good. I submitted an old one that a friend of mine Nick Oldert sang but it wasn’t shortlisted.
