Just love a turn of phrase.
Hence the song below. All comments welcome. Rob

Wall Flower


(Wall \Flower: a shy or excluded person at a dance or party, especially a girl without a partner.)

Wallflower not noticed at all
Wallflower no belle of the ball
Wallflower can you hear them call
Poor little wall flower have no fun at all.

Chorus
I see you sitting on that stool.
Hey I'm no bodies fool.
I will sweep you off those, sweet little feet
Your no wallflower to me.

Bridge

Chorus
I see you sitting on that stool.
Hey I'm no bodies fool.
I will sweep you off those sweet little feet
Your no wallflower to me.

Wallflower not noticed at all
Wallflower no belle of the ball
Wallflower can you hear them call
Poor little wall flower have no fun at all.

Chorus
I see you sitting on that stool.
Hey I'm no bodies fool.
I will sweep you off those sweet little feet
Your no wallflower to me.
Your no wallflower to me.
Your no wallflower to me.

Love the arrangement, excellent vocal. I love the pedal guitar flourishes! And clocking in at under 2:30, wow!

Nits - where the strings drop out at 1:31, it sounds like you change the reverb or something. It seems the reverb tail drops off around 1:42, which makes the vocal sort of stick out.

I really enjoy hearing your tunes - they're retro and a lot of fun to listen to. Thanks for posting! laugh

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

Super song with a very strong vocal and excellent lyrics. I liked the backing tracks also.

What a tune! This has such a genuine, authentic feeling to it. It reminds me of something from the late 50's/early 60's. The vocals remind me a bit of Elvis at time. The way you incorporated the falsetto worked flawlessly here.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

dcuny's reference points are spot on Rob.
I also noticed that the essing is less an issue when the reverb drops away. You should look into the fine settings of the reverb and try to low or high pass it around the essing frequency.
Good tune and performance - just a few tweaks needed.

Your vocals always have such a rich, warm tone to them ... perfect for this material.
Lots of subtle things happening here that kick things up a notch. Those background vocals during the verses for example.
"Band" sound good, Steel especially sounds great!
Good song!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
