Sometime back i posted a song, cant remember what one.

But someone made a comment regarding it being in the style of JD Souther, or sounding like.

I had to google this guy, because i thought.. ive never heard of him.

Turned out though i had. because he had a long relationship with one of my hero bands The Eagles. i was surprised to see the link as in he wrote the track, How long and recorded it on one of his albums.

Of course the Eagles done How long as well.

The other thing i found was he wrote a song called You're Only Lonely, I read in an article how he based/ styled or was influenced by Roy Orbison Only the lonely.

I love this guys stuff, i bought all albums that i could get.

Now here is my wee song based on being influenced by both of these songs.

I get lonely.

Great job with the vocals and doubling. Really nice groove and structure. Big nod to the ending chord.

It probably wasn't me but JD is one of my all time favorites.

Some of those songs that Linda Ronstadt recorded are still at the top my list

for great songs.

Loved your idea and inspiration for the title,

this was a very catchy bouncy song that flows along nicely

enjoyed the listen,

Kenny

Hello beatmaster, wowzers! Excellent mixdown on all of this and rhythm is easy to follow. Great tone with the guitar too. Really enjoyed the movement of the strings with the rest of the instruments. Fantastic work on the vocals. Looking forward to hear more!

Cool song. But, why does BandCamp have to have a political opinion and adjenda?

Beatmaster,

This is a really enjoyable listen. I love the vibe. Everything sits really well in the mix and frames your singing competence admirably.

Kudos for using all those MIDI tracks. In case it means anything, I'm impressed!

All the best,
Noel

This works on all levels - warm vocals (with no need for fancy effects) and a catchy melody.Your research paid off `cos you`ve captured the country pop feel.
Not having much clue about MIDI, I`m curious why you went that route rather than RT`s?

I get a 50s vibe or early 60s pre-Beatles with your song. Very upbeat music with less than upbeat lyrical content, similar to that era. Nice work!

beatmaster,

A very catchy tune. THe piano/drum combo keep it moving throughout.

Nice vocal, well sung and a nice warmth.


(J.D.'s "Faithless Love" has always been a favorite - especially Linda Ronstadt's version with J.D. singing harmony).

Cool song... I just finished watching The History of the Eagles on Netflix again.... JD is a big influence and collaborator in their songs. They all lived together in the early days.... Jackson Brown was in that mix too.

Your song is good. I liked it. Playful and light feeling.

Nits: I couldn't really hear the bass all that well.... I actually had to look at the OP to see if there was a bass track.... and yep.. there was. Also, not a fan of the non-tonic chord ending. It felt unfinished.

What a tune! It's a gorgeous throwback - sounds like it's right out of the late 60's/70's. You nailed the harmonies, and that groove carries everything along perfectly. Really catchy as well, and your vocals are spot on.

Great work - thanks for sharing smile
