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!

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
