I was listening to the latest Brooks and Dunn record when this hook popped in my head.
So I figured I might as well return to that sound for the song.
It is a sound that BIAB really excels at.
And the solo guitar efforts always seem so effortless. Just right.



WAIT YOUR TURN

i know that look
i've seen it too many times before
you'll make me fall in love
then walk out that door
you hit your mark
just one more notch
then load another round
you line 'em up
just for the fun of knockin' 'em down
   
   if you want to break my heart
   get in line
   it still ain't over
   the last couple of times
   playing for keeps
   it falls too deep
   it's a lesson never learned
   if you want to break my heart
   you'll have to wait your turn

darlene did it with
those deep blues eyes
lori had a laugh
that took me by surprise
heather hit me hard
dancing in the rain
margaret had a magic
i still can't explain

   if you want to break my heart...

Floyd,

You make this songwriting thing seem so easy! Another terrific write and production. Really like the harmonies on this one-well done. Sweet, toe-tapping tune!

Humble regards,

Deej

Floyd, you are one of the best lyricists and musicians we have in these forums. Everything you post is radio ready and in fact better than most of what is being played on the radio today.

I wish I had your talent!

The day after Valentine's day; I hop on the forums and this is waiting? The stars aligned when the meteor missed us! It's a great day!

What a cool song. Definitely hear B and D! Seems easy enough to do, until you try it. Because they and you make it look effortless.

RD is one of my fav singers, and you are right up there. There was a point a point I thought I heard a little Roy Orbinson sound going on. And as I type this, I am remembering RD himself does that on occasion. Impressive!

Your lyrics are never missing. Great use of the names. VERY fun to hear.

The song just sounds like it sound. It's clever, well delivered, and I feel is a great mix of the 90's and 20's country. I know younger kids would think this song is pretty cool! I think it's a really well delivered universal theme.

Well placed breaks too! That really ads to the lyric, doesn't it? I loves me a good break.

So, you did it again Ronnie. Another great song.

fj,
This one kicks on from the 1st beat.
An assured vocal performance with just the right twang to match the instrumentation.
As usual there's a story worth following and a melody that has hooks galore.
Your mix is terrific.

Wow. You do amazing things with a little inspiration. Way to take it from a germ to a gem, man. This is great. Great hook, great harmony, catchy rhythm, perfect production, and such a great story idea.

Good driving beat, those rhythm guitars really rock. Catchy chorus. The difference between the word rhythm in verses distracts a bit, because only the first verse melody sounds somehow familiar, interesting effect.

FJ,
Nice, well though out tune. Easy to follow lyrics. Everything is crisp. Guitar work is A+!
One spot at 2:49. "your turn" phrase dives into a little. I would not have mentioned this, but since it is the theme of your song, and YOU said that it would NOT break your heart I will smile Otherwise, cool catchy song done masterfully. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Great bar dancing (not pole dancing) song!

Clean mix. Great vocal, as usual. Good lyrical and musical hook.

Sweet clean sound on a super tune Floyd! Your harmony is spot on in this! What a catchy tune! You really handled your mix in great fashion considering all those smokin guitar parts going on in there! Thanks, Torrey

Hi Floyd
Like Deej said, you make it seem easy. But as we all know, it ain't. You have a wealth of experience and talent that goes into making it look that way. Another fine song, really well sung.
Regards,
Leon

Loved the intro - and the rest of the song.

Superb lyric, mix and a truly wonderful vocal.

Another top notch song in all respects.

This is the next very strong song in the row of good songs, Floyd!
Very powerful with fun lyrics.
I only miss the names of the Dutch girls you met. They also had to wait their turn I suppose...

Catchy hook, tasty rocking guitar licks, alliterative list in the verse, clever payoff for the chorus, and fj goodness throughout.

Of course, impeccable production and subtle harmonies as well.

Best of all, a super-fun listen that leaves the chorus going round my head when it's done. laugh

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

Thanks, Deej. I've written this style of song for a lone time (a bunch of 'em), so I do find these pretty easy to do. Generally they take about 30 minutes... And then BIAB makes it easy to produce this style (and I've done that a bunch, too)...
