I'd call this a three minute song of deep and abiding love. Except it's not. I do like other people's pets, though.

https://soundcloud.com/user-47797156/the-dogs-name

This is a thorough rework of an old tune. Not the world's strongest melody, but I hope it holds together. BIAB 2019 suggested the BBBlues style to replace the original midi.

Bass RT 579
Main Guitar RT 584
Second Guitar RT 573
Bass RT 579
RD Nashville even 8 a/b

I added Harmonica RT 586

The EP was a midi track run though my old Kurzweil saved from the old project. So is the organ/pads...though it is barely audible, I missed it when I took it out.

Mixed in Reaper with mostly Izotope plugins.

This was written for RPM 2007 and made it to the CD that came out of that, entitled THOU SHALT.

The Dog's Name

Just got back for the weekend
Still don't feel like home.
Even the dog ignored me
and sat there chewin' his bone.
I guess I should be happy
he didn't bark and growl.
I've been gone for a long time
But this cat is back home now.

Just don't call me the dog's name
Or put me back in the show.
Just don't call me the dog's name
He don't even like the rock and roll.
Just don't call me the dog's name
or make me share his bowl.
Just don't call me the dog's name
and baby, we'll be good to go.

I remember the pup
Now he's big as a mule
He craps his weight in groceries
And gives the kids a ride to school
He's got his spot on the bed
And he's circling around
You lay there rubbin' his head
I should've name the mutt "Get Down".

Just don't call me the dog's name
Or put me back in the show.
Just don't call me the dog's name
He don't even like the rock and roll.
Just don't call me the dog's name
or make me share his bowl.
Just don't call me the dog's name
and baby, we'll be good to go.

I disagree as I think the melody is very strong, as is your vocal.

You had my toe tapping right from the git go. Great mix also.

I liked everything about this.

It's the rhythm and the mood that makes this song sounds excellent.
Don't mind about the 'greatness' of the melody. Your vocals are very, very good on this kind of music. And I love that voice. I don't even come close to it when having a cold.
Make me more of this kind of songs with such a voice!
But, give me the dogs name...

Hi Tangmo,

This is a good, fun listen. You entertained me smile

I don't recall hearing this particular combination of Realtracks before but it sure creates a great groove! My feet were tapping along.

Your writing, singing, arranging and producing all sound excellent to me.

All the best,
Noel

Holds quite well together, Tangmo. The lyrics, the melody and the delivery wrap a nice package, although I'd prefer the vocal a bit more out front.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Tangmo,
I think your melody is quite sophisticated for this genre.
Excellent write. Has a cool scratchy vintage feel to it. Very well performed. Fun stuff. Thank you for sharing!

Glad you decided to rework this, don't think I ever heard the original but I really like this, great groove.

You have the perfect voice for this sort of material too, just the right edge to it.

Nice!

Cool, cool, song.

The melody hooks, and that's all that matters.

"Just don't call me the dog's name..." Great!

I really liked this.

A very clever write ( ok, some details made me squirm & laugh at the same time) with the vocal very much "in character" with the lyrics.
Everything sounds good on the mix.
What`s 2007 RPM?

A good lyric and melody backed by a solid BIAB band.
The vocal is really good but the essing and whatever is throwing edges of the vocal over to the left are quite distracting.


Cheers

Vocal really sits perfect with the style you've captured.

There'a really a lot to like about this.

Fun lyrics.

Interesting dark blues with a good story, I enjoyed the chording and the melody. Good band and vocals, the piano gives nice vibe addition.

Sorry to be so late. LOTS of songs nowadays on the forum!

The melody is fine and what a cool idea for a write.

Fine vocal, mix and RT choices wrap it all up. That dobro
really caries it.

Not too big on using the term...but, well, "catchy." It genuinely sticks
with you -- lyrically and melodically.

Lot of fun!

J&B
