End of another year.

A time for reflection...



WISHIN' AND WHISKEY

mistakes and regrets disappear
blended into a fading buzz
it's easy to filter to the good times
pretending that's all there was
loose and fast
reaching ever deeper into the well
stories past
the endings getting better with every tell
   
   for what you don't remember
   there's no accounting
   for the most part, i know just where i've been
   the good the bad the in between all mixed in
   wishin' and whiskey to wash away the sin

every day that passes
i seem to spend a little more time looking back
not sure what i think i'll see
if what i'm searching for would still be intact
trying not to listen to the devil as he dares me
tied in knots 'cause looking forward scares me
   
   for what you don't remember
   there's no accounting
   for the most part, i know just where i've been
   the good the bad the in between all mixed in
   wishin' and whiskey to wash away the sin
   wishin' and whiskey to wash away the sin

Floyd, man I love the way this things builds as it goes! You are a master at picking and choosing the perfect blend of realtracks to make a tune happen and make it sound the way a pro level tune should sound! Your vocals and harmony are as good as ever! Thanks, Torrey

I agree with Torrey, you are an expert in blending RTs into perfection. You also are an excellent singer and a fantastic lyricist!

Another winner!

I think this one sounded a bit off, your vocals where on another key to the track, or the track should have followed your vocals with a few changes on the chord side of things, I just don't know what it is but its not your usual posting Floyd .

However I will await the ducking and diving I will have to endure, I need to be honest as I always am ?.

OR AM I JUST DAFT AND DRUNK, GOOD ONE MATE !!.Brilliant !!.

Thanks

Floyd, you have a knack.

Boy, do you ever have a knack smile

Your lyric writing, musicality, build, selection of backings, vocal delivery and every thing else I could possibly suggest are always outstandingly sensational.

Wishin' And Whiskey is no exception.

Marvelous. Congratulations.

Lovely song Floyd. Very cool lyric. As always excellent vocal . Loved the jangly guitar in the intro. Kind of a Byrd’s vibe

This is a very good write,Floyd; you really do have a way of making personal reflection universal.
my favourite lines:

"every day that passes
i seem to spend a little more time looking back
not sure what i think i'll see
if what i'm searching for would still be intact
trying not to listen to the devil as he dares me
tied in knots 'cause looking forward scares me"

Nice understated feeling in the vocal and, of course, the arrangement serves the song perfectly.
A good way to toast another year!

Robert

floyd

A lovely sound - easy on the ear, a nice build and a musical chorus,
excellent lyrics with your signature vocals.

What's not to like?

A really nice way to end the year.

I like it!

You certainly have a mixed bag of emotions going on that seem to work really well. Somehow, that always seems to be the case.

As I typically do not read the lyrics or instrumentation prior to listening, I did NOT see the harmonica coming! lol It's part of the happy side of the contrast.

Btw, those drum lessons are paying off! I'm hearing some really nice ghosting going on. I'm a sucker for that. smile

Nice clean production.

Performed well.

What more can a guy say? Oh! Lyrics!

Below are the lyrics with my changes made :

"mistakes and regrets disappear
blended into a fading buzz
it's easy to filter to the good times
pretending that's all there was
loose and fast
reaching ever deeper into the well
stories past
the endings getting better with every tell

for what you don't remember
there's no accounting
for the most part, i know just where i've been
the good the bad the in between all mixed in
wishin' and whiskey to wash away the sin

every day that passes
i seem to spend a little more time looking back
not sure what i think i'll see
if what i'm searching for would still be intact
trying not to listen to the devil as he dares me
tied in knots 'cause looking forward scares me

for what you don't remember
there's no accounting
for the most part, i know just where i've been
the good the bad the in between all mixed in
wishin' and whiskey to wash away the sin
wishin' and whiskey to wash away the sin"

I think you will find them to be exactly the way you posted them. You have A LOT going on and yet it sounds so effortless. Actually, I will say simple. Yet, to look at how you play with concepts/thoughts is simply astounding.

If this is a pre-view of 2020, I'm even more excited than I was!

Thanks for sharing this!

This is really a song of yours, Floyd!
You know it must be you when hearing this kind of composition. Beautiful!

Very nice vocals and well chosen instruments, super mixing and a melody that makes you very melancholic.
I like that combination.

Hi floyd,

I had a listen yesterday through the 'phones, listening today through the KRK's.

As always I love the way you build the track, and the way you mix (drums sound great). And of course the vocals and lyrics are always top notch.

Excellent way to bring 2019 to a close, and I'm looking forward to hearing what you bring to the table in 2020!

Best to you and yours smile

A wonderful song fj.
The narrative is excellent and the arrangement choice fit like a glove - the harmonica was a surprise but it works and adds a layer that is comforting.
The two mix things that stood out are:
The aggressive whistle/ess in "loose"
and the clicky kick drum - which seems out of context but is almost ubiquitous in RealDrums.
