Wild Horses

Something a little different from Chris and myself, just a fun party type tune this time up.

Wild Horses (2019, Christiane Spruit)

I want a good night out
cause it is Saturday night
I've got to ring my friends
we're going out, alright
I've got some wild horses (x2)
I've got some damn good arguments
to set them free

I've been working hard
Each day of the week
and a good night out is all I need
I am going all the way down now
to dance and howl and shout it out loud
I am going to have a good night out
to shake it loose

Bridge (instrumental)

I've got to pay my rent
I've got to pay my dues
But on a saturday night I've got to shake it loose
I've got some wild horses (x2)
I've got some damn good arguments
to set them free

Outro vamp: free free set them free


The band:

RealTracks in song: 1583:Bass, Electric, TexasBluesRockShuffle Sw 130
RealTracks in song: ~425:Organ, B3, Background Blues Sw 120
RealTracks in song: 2436:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm NewOrleansShuffle Sw 130
RealDrums [in Song:BluesRockShuffle^1-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Open HiHat

I'm playing the slide and straight guitars, strat processed with S-Gear.

The basic bed for this was one I did at the end of last year as a platform for PeterF and myself to have some fun with the guitars. That guitar jam is here: Blue Stew.

When Chris heard it she asked if she could do a version with vocals. I modified the bed to work better with vocals and added an instrumental bridge.

Mixed with reaper using plugins from waves, mastered with Ozone8.

03/26: Also uploaded to soundcloud, although the sound is always better on reverbnation IMHO. Here: Wild Horses

All comments welcome!

Bob sure did sum this up perfectly. Blues Rock is one of my very favorite genres and this blows it out of the water. Man, this is some great listening!!!!! Everything about this is spot on - the composition, the mix, the arrangement, the vocal delivery, the backing tracks, and that mean and nasty guitar. I think that about covers it! Super cool song and performance. Loved it!

Wishing you both the very best ...

Alan

Dave,
Nice resurrection! I remember this. Christiane did fantastic work! So cool, how vector can change with idea from a different person. A lot of heart and energy in it. I like march-R&Roll guitar parts at 1:10. Overall great production!

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

You guys just keep the hits coming...

Everything about this sounds good. No surprise there.

A solid rock/blues write. Chris' vocals are excellent (again).

Nice guitar work. The mix is superb. You make the BIAB organs sound better than anyone. The bass is even and punchy (what do you do to that?).

All around goodness.

Dave/Chris,

Some terrific blues going on here—the bar will be up on its feet grooving to this one should you play it live. Really well put together . . . great stuff!

Best regards,

Deej

Fun song indeed.
Mix wise I reckon a little more guitar on one side to balance the almost dominant organ on the other is warranted.
As it plays there's no real prob. at all.

Very cool song. Love this backtrack. Great sound from the B3 track. Strat was awesome. Chris's vocal were so good as well. Nice to hear the slide as well. One of my favorites

Excellent vocal, nice lyric and overall production.

Loved the slide (very tasteful) and the "Hideaway" like break.

Wonderful blues - always a pleasure to hear what you two come up with.

What a tune! From the first couple seconds I knew I'd be into this. The groove is infectious and impossible not to move with, and the vocals are playful and really engaging. The whole tune just sounds incredibly fun. Definitely an earworm!

Really well done - thanks so much for sharing smile

Nice rocking party tune, great vocals and playing. Organ is bit too loud to my taste, but guitars sound great!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
