London Town

Met a pretty girl in London town
Eyes of green and hair of chestnut brown
Thought my future must have changed
Such was the power of her sweet gaze
We said goodbye and she shed a tear
I said I’ll come again, never you fear

Back at home I told my mother
Told my sister and I told my brother
I have met my one and only
London’s where I must be going

London town
Raised my hopes up so high and then she tore them down

Met a pretty girl in London town
She turned my world all upside down
Just two weeks we spent together
But I thought our love would last forever
I said I’ll come again, don’t you fear
And then we will be married my dear

Back at home I told my mother
Told my sister and I told my brother
I have met my one and only
London’s where I must be going

London town
Raised my hopes up so high and then she tore them down

London town
Raised my hopes up so high and then she tore them down

London town
Raised my hopes up so high and then she tore them down, tore them down

Cool song.
The 1st phrase of the vocal is buried by the intro leads.
Regarding the leads - they way I hear them in headphones is line left is above my left ear a bit towards my eyebrow and the right is below my right ear.
I reckon the idea is great but I also think they ought to be tighter to be juxtaposed as they are. The lead licks on the left throughout are really tasty and sit well.
It's a terrific song - really enjoyable and a good groove too.
Ace.

I agree with Ray - the vocal seems buried, especially at the beginning. I'm listening to speakers, not headphones.

Bouncy and fun. I love the way the chorus builds at the end. I expected a fade at 2:50, but why cover up a perfectly good solo? smile

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

Nice work on this one - flows really well, and though the volumes could be turned up a smidge I still think it's really solid write. Nicely catchy, especially on the hook. If the mix was a bit more concise I could see this being on the radio, no doubt.

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Peter & Leon,

A catchy tune...especially the refrain.

Good guitar stuff throughout - the outro is especially nice.

I agree that the vocal needs a bit more clarity. The vocal frequency and guitar frequencies seem to be about the same place, causing a conflict...

An enjoyable tune. Glad to see y'all back in the swing of things.

Fun song!! A bit of the lighter side of heartache. Catchy melody and nice guitar! Also feel the vocal could come up a bit, particularly in parts. Great guitar outro!! Enjoyed!! Take care. Greg

Thanks Ray - you have good ears. The guitars are panned equally L & R.
Appreciate the review.

Listening on near field monitors and I agree.

The guitar parts are very good, nice playing! I also like the backing tracks. Just bring up the vocals.

Peter

I THINK frequencies may give the up & down impression but don't really know.
I'll have a listen on near & far fields sometime today.

Sounds good. I wasn't really smitten with the lyric at first, but the overall "feel" of the song tilted me toward hearing it as an old tale of holiday love lost with enough time passed to reminisce a bit more light-heartedly. Really liked the solo on the way out.
