Dance Delihla Dance

I hope no one minds me posting one so soon after the previous one. I may not get to post another one for a week or two as Di's health continues to decline and she requires more and more attention.

As far as the spelling of "Delihla" - I'm aware that's not the common spelling of the name. But the daughter of a friend spells hers that way and I decided to use it as such. She was very happy!

I really have no idea about genre for this one. It has some gypsy, folk, pop, tin pin alley elements, but they seem to be equally divided in characteristic weight. I have to call it something when I load it up on Songtradr! Of course, any other comments are welcome. All tracks are acoustic Real Tracks and I simply molest the vocals.

To me, this has somewhat of a Leon Redbone sound, except I can't sing that quirky way he does.

Dance Delihla Dance
© 2018 Alan D. David, BMI / Diana Randall, BMI

(v1)
On Friday nights she appears, at the bar on Fourth and Grand
The sun’s asleep while the stars shine bright and cast a mystic trance
The crowd makes way, the men all shout, when she steps onto the floor
The band strikes up an eerie sound and Delihla starts to dance

CHORUS
Dance Delihla dance, you drive the men all wild
Dance Delihla dance, as you flash that wicked smile
You twirl your skirt, laugh and flirt, some say you’re Satan’s child
Dance Delihla dance, you drive the men all wild

(v2)
She blew into town one night, with a late September storm
She roped the wind, called its bluff, and rode it through the fray
Like a shadow in the dark, she refuses to be found
No one knows where she stays, or where she spends the day

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

(v3)
If she is the devil’s kin, there ain’t a man who cares
They’d sell their soul for any price, just to see her dance
She leaves a veil of mystic glow, with every move she makes
Each one thinks he’ll be one, to get that special glance

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

Al,

Great swing folk song. I like the lyrics- she sounds like quite a gal!
That Leon Redbone feel comes through ( your vocals sound quirky enough for this style to me), with some female backup harmonies it could also be a Dan Hicks number.
Sweet, a real toe-tapper.

I love this chorus lyric: "You twirl your skirt, laugh and flirt, some say you’re Satan’s child/Dance Delihla dance, you drive the men all wild." Good stuff! Appropriate instrumentation for this piece: The spirit matches the lyric. It's got pep!

Another awesome tune Alan. I must say I was very tired when I listen but when the resonator kicked in boy did that perk me up. This was such a cool song. One of your best vocals and lyrics. Such a neat rhythm to the song. Well done..

Thanks a bunch, Ray. Much appreciated. And yeah, when I slapped that reso into the mix, I was sold immediately. Best to you.

Robert,

Many thanks for the nice comments. Yep, Delihla was quite the vamp! Glad the Leon Redbone aura came through. I tried doing it in that baritone, monotone voice he sings in but it sounded pretty cheesy - maybe some other time!

I'm not familiar with Dan Hicks - gonna check him out. Thanks again.

Alan

Ez,

Many thanks for all that - I sure do appreciate it. That chorus just fell into place. From first word written until the final version, as sung, was less than fifteen minutes. I love it when that happens! Wish it happened more often!

Like I told Ray, when I sampled that reso for the song, it just made it glow, to the point I'm capable of doing so.

Best to you.

ALan

Scott,

You are much too kind - but no need to stop! Many thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun to write and came together pretty quickly. Wishing you the best.

An entertaining tune, Alan.

Nicely written, good gathering of instruments and a good mix.

Seems to me you have a somewhat Leon Redbone sound going there - it works! (though he would likely add a trombone or tuba - or both...)

Enjoyed.

Alan...loved the Redbone homage! I saw him in person a number of years ago, and his unique style & personality is always somewhere there in my creative memory...loved this approach.

How cool to hear a 'new' style, created from imagination like this...I think it was great.

Your choice of RT's and other components was right on, totally supported the idea you're wanting to get across.

I don't know about 'vocal molestation'; I think it was just right for this song!

Hi Floyd,

Thanks so much for the listen and kind comments. The leon redbone sound is exactly what i was going for. I long been a fan of his quirky but entertaining style.

Wishing you the best.

Tano,

I'm envious - would love to see him in person. I first saw him on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show back in the 80s. I've been a fan for more years than I can remember. Thank you for those very kind words. I experiment with altering many of the BIAN styles - sometimes it works out okay. He's the only famous musician I know of originally from the Island of Cypress.

Unlike my wife, Di, vocals are always my weak point. I have a very limited vocal range and somewhat monotoned. She can sing anything in almost any key - well, she could before her health tanked a few years back. This one came out halfway decent I guess. Vocal processors are some of my best friends!

Many thanks! Best to you.

Alan

What a tune! Super catchy, and wonderful groove. Top notch vocal delivery on top of that, and I love the playful nature of the tune. Got my toe tapping in seconds, and I might just have that chorus stuck in my head all day.

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


Cheers,
Deryk

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.
