To me this stands on its own as it should.

One of the posts above mentioned the liking /opposite to Greg and his song Sutherland Road, although both are of the same style and structure Both shine in their own rights.


Enjoyed this Thanks.

P.S. PUT ME IN MIND OF Leo Sayer and orchard road.


Thanks, beatmaster. The themes of "going back home" and "things have certainly changed" are, needless to say, very popular songwriting themes. It is interesting to see the different songs that something like this bring to mind in each listener's listening history...

Beautiful song!
I feel the essence of country in this tune.
Despite English lyrics, the story comes into my mind without difficulty.
I think that it is because of your powerful vocal.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi - I appreciate that. Thanks for your continued support...

It's like miniature movie, this song.

I wonder what genre you would call this (or any number of your tunes.)

They don't sound "country" to me, more like Dan Folgelberg in the "storyteller" genre, which the Eagles did very well, as did Jim Croce.

If you had to put a genre on this (other than the Floyd genius genre) how would you define it?

Great job on this man.


Mr. Snyder... thanks for the nice comments... genre? don't know.... I grew up listening mainly to singer-songwriter-storytellers - is that a "genre"... let's say "sure!" smile

A first class song Floyd. I love the arc of the story. Your vocal delivery, technically and emotionally, is spot on as usual. Nicely engineered and mixed. Congratulations on another winner.
cool smile

The clarity and overall sound of both your vocal and the piano are outstanding.
The lyric makes me contemplate over and over about what makes a great write like this. A wonderful combo of nature and nurture I think.

Sublime and poignant.

What a truly nice review. Thanks for noting the production and the write - both of which are focal points for me....

Great writing. And I love the name of her street!

Great intro and pacing throughout the arrangement.

And your vocals and harmonies are outstanding

Well done!


Thanks Lawrence. Good eye on catching "beacon drive"... a real "buried songwriting clue" that typically only writers who really pay attention catch.

Very good lyrics... as are the music and your vocals.

Some very cool lines in this song:

"a lazy downtown all replaced
by high-rises and a hectic pace
everywhere she turned another stranger’s face
in the town she once called home"

Outstanding stuff!

Bob


Thanks, Bob - always nice to have a real "lyric guy" quote some lyrics... (you've been killing it lately!!)

We’ve all been there, going back to a beloved spot and seeing how it’s changed, how affecting that can be. And yet it’s still that same place. Well captured here. Great tune—enjoyed listening to this one.

Hope all is well in your world.

Regards,

Deej


Deej - good to see you stop back around. Thanks for the nice review...

Boy what a lovely song Floyd. I just about missed this song. I have not had much time on the forum lately. The song sure move around fast. Just loved the backtrack. Such a cool rhythm to it. Complements such a beautiful vocal and lyric. Well done Floyd

Hi Floyd,

I hope you don't mind me digging this out of your closet...

I have been checking out a lot of your songs...

What a journey, everything from hocking kids at pawn shops to touching and poignant tunes like this.

It just really touched me as someone who left and could never find that way back home...

Your vocals, lyrics and music captured this theme perfectly.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
