Hi All,

Here's something new...

This is called Light It Up.

Looking down our empty street
I can see the rain’s still falling
And was it yesterday
Some real promises were broken
I don’t know just what is real
Cause I’m aware I’m falling
This house is quiet tonight
Except for the strangers calling

So good
So fine
Light it up baby
Just one more time
Before you go
Turn it up
Burn it down

Looking down memory lane
I can see the shadows falling
And was it in my mind
Some final words were spoken
I don’t accept what I feel
Cause I know you’re falling
This is my last appeal
Except for the days I’m calling

So good
So fine
Light it up baby
Just one more time
Before you go
Turn it up
Burn it down

So good
So fine
Light it up baby
Just one more time
Before you go
Turn it up
Burn it down

Sounds cool.
the 1st guitar chord is alarmingly loud though.
Your vocal is just right for the setting though there're some levels, plosives and essing that could be treated with a fast attack compressor etc. to make it sit even better.
Good work.


Cheers

Bob,

There`s a slow burn to this one I enjoyed - lots of emotion in your vocals especially the chorus.
Love that Americana rhythm guitar building through the song.
Very good!

Hi Robert,

You never disappoint. Every time I click onto one of your songs I know I'm in for a treat - and this was a delicious one! That slow burn Robert mentioned is spot on and works so nicely for this one. Your vocal sits right in it like an added touch of sugar in a hot chocolate. Totally enjoyed it! Best to you.

This sounded so good on the headphones. I really liked the intro. Your voice has always reminded me of Dylan. This is one of your best vocals Bob. Such a cool song. Perfect for a Saturday night.

I always enjoy hearing your music, such passion in those vocals! And great writing.

I liked that first guitar part, didn't seem too loud to me. Mix sounds good through both the studio headphones and monitors.

Another good song from you!

Bob, enjoyed my listen! I especially liked:
1) how you created a distinction between the verse music and the 'in-between' bars...using the elec 12-string strum to 'calm down' the backing to support your verse vocals.
2) the strong, but simple chorus melody/lyric: using 2- to 4- syllables per line...very efficient and good for the listening!
3) your vocal, just right for the genre...and produced so professionally! I'm envious!!
4) the overall song didn't try to do too much, you stuck to your message, lyrically and musically--I think that really shows excellent design!

Thanks for posting your outstanding work!

Bob,

This is so cool man! I really enjoyed this!

I can always count on you to give us a taste of the West Village, and those rainy, midnight, desolate, crime-ridden and forbidden streets with Lou Reed hunched over in the darkness smoking a cigarette on the corner standing in a pile of dirty New York City snow--

while everyone else is writing Christmas songs.

smile

I love it!!

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

Bob, I really like this one. The highly compressed snare and the dry elec rhythm guitar were inspired choices. The build to the higher melody in the choruses just let’s them fly. Great work, Tom
