A co-write with Debi Champion.

If you ever spend any time in Nashville checking the songwriting scene, you will likely find Debi's Writers' Night.
She has hosted the most popular nights for at least 25 years.
It is currently at The Commodore Lounge on West End.
For many years it was at The Broken Spoke Saloon (for reference for anyone who might have visited Nashville in years past).
Almost every writer who has come through in the last 25 years has played Debi's stage.
If you've listened to Country music in that period, you have heard guys and gals who got their start at those writer's nights. Some still pop in to do a round now and again.
Of course, you will also hear a night full of songs that are "less than great" - the majority of writers who move to town will find that they do not belong there - but, you've still got to give them credit for trying - for following a dream.
And a few who aren't ready when they get there will develop into good writers and find their way into the right nooks and crannies...doors do open for those who have the talent... and most will start at one of Debi's nights.
She is a sweetheart - welcoming to all.
Pack your dreams, your guitar and go see her to get a spot...



OVER MY HEAD

steady as a rock, always on an even keel
i never lose my head over what my heart might feel
but, then, you kissed me
oh could this be
what love makes you do when it's real

   my heart's in deeper than it's ever been
   it just jumped right in
   i can't seem to catch my breath
   i'm going under again
   there's no saving it now, just let it go
   it's been swept away by something out of control
   a feeling too deep to tread
   my heart's in over my head

hey, look at me, throwing caution to the wind
not really caring if i sink or swim
i'm closing my eyes
holding on tight
here i go, i'm giving in

Good song!

I listened twice, first through the monitors and then through the phones.

When I listen through the phones every so often I'm hearing something odd on the harmony vocal panned left, "to catch my breath", is an example, as if it might be slightly out of sync? Or maybe just the fx you have on it? Maybe it's just my old ears wink

But, enjoyed the song and the performance very much.

Really nice work on this, Gary smile It has a fantastic old school quality to it. The vocal performance is strong and memorable, and the backing tracks make it all flow beautifully. The harmonies played a wonderful roll here, and perfectly catchy as well.

Great job, and thanks for sharing!


Cheers,
Deryk

Hey Floyd,

Did you change your name to Gary? Sweet!

Anyway, I agree this song has a really catchy, extremely hooky hold-school vibe to it.

And I mean that in a really good way.

Really enjoyed it!!

Gary..

Nice guitar sounds and Groove ,Vocals are good and strong, though I agree with the weird sound ?, I also hear it, bit more time on this one I think.


Another listen on my beyer cans, it is just a bit of a delay on the backing vocals, sounds great on the phones.

Hey... this is a fun song. Has a pop country sound to it.

David Snyder..... were you referencing Gary Morris? Yep... I think I told FJ that years ago.... uncanny huh?

Yep...all in all a cool tune. Nice work.

Dave - I think I found the issue (an effect doing weird stuff). I've uploaded a new version (deleted the old one - only way I could figure to replace it). Let me know if you are still hearing something not right. Thanks for the listen!

Floyd,

Tight, upbeat... and highly marketable (in another simpler Top Of The Pops world!).
The vocals and harmonies sound just right to me.

I nice 60's vintage sounding pop song.

Floyd how do you come up with such winners, both in chords, lyrics and mixes, time after time after time?

This is another of my FJ favorites.

Very catchy pop rock song, nice arrangement with pleasant loop sounds and great vocals, especially the Janettes, the guitar solo is perfect fit.

No. It was the bad use of a Nectar preset on one of the harmonies.

Janice said she enjoyed singing along with it as much as she did when she recorded her part.

You covered a lot of bases with this one...catchy wonderful melody, older sounds, newer sounds, the fj high bar production stamp and, of course, an engagingly nailed lead vocal.

Given the high fj output it remains remarkable that you NEVER release any filler. Amazing.

J&B

What a fun feel good song! Fun to sing along with too. Love the oldie vibe that runs through it and those claps. Add my compliments to your co-writer and the Janettes too. Great job y'all.
