This is deserving of many streams...actually it oughta be on the charts.

Why, because it's a take on the "situation" that is not only
uplifting but would be a great lyric irrespective of the context.

Janice immediately locked in on the layered harmonies...great they are.
As is, of course, the lead vocal.

Nice choice of RT's, loops and cool to see that you joined in on acoustic.

So, spin the accolade wheel!

click, click, click....stop....SUPERB!

It's got the plausible deniability of appearing to be "just" a love song, with the specifics being vague enough to apply to just about any relationship.

Of course, well written, sung, and produced. Pop and fun to listen to - loved the claps and other loops.


David - I always appreciate that you "get" all aspects of a song.

Stay safe. Stay in. This thing is getting scarier every day...

Enjoyable U2-type of intro, soft verse leads to the powerful chorus with nice drums. The production is very polished, good use of loops adding nice details. Nice theme for the current pandemic situation, really anthemic and universal, I hope no-one gets offended when I say that this song should spread fast like a virus around the globe.

Instrumentally and lyrically you've written a song that's as pertinent to life after Covid-19 as it is to our current circumstances. Every now and then a song comes along that touches us. You've hit on every now and on every then. You sure pulled it off with this one. It makes my list of favorite Floyd Jane songs...

Enjoyed my listen.


Charlie - that "review" means a lot to me. It was my intent to write this so that it was undeniably pertinent to the current situation, but also be able to "have a life" beyond that...and not have it be a one-dimensional song that would die with the virus (which hopefully will be sooner rather than later, but it does not look like that will be the case)

Aced it FJ! Love everything about the way you put this together, performed and produced it. Really cool message wrapped in a love song. If I was still on the air, I'd play it. Best compliment I can give you.

That something as dark as COVID-19 can inspire such a wonderful song really says a great deal about your singer/songwriter abilities.

All the best,

Noel - always pleased to have you come around for a listen. Stay safe, my friend... I'd like to see us ALL get through this...

It could be considered being a love song, but sadly enough Corona was the trigger. And on that, you can stay in together, but keep your distance! and that's not in your lyrics. I'm fooling a bit of course, but that's because I can't complain about this song! It has a strong melody and likewise this counts for the vocals as well. The chorus is build up very nice, like very much how you did this!
And the topic? These strange times can give good opportunities on a lot of things, but also on staying together...

Hans


Thanks, Hans... these are strange new waters we are sailing...

Dude,

I know I posted to this song!

Maybe the corona virus ate it.

Anyway, this is awesome (again) and I LOVE it.

Also, thanks for checking in on me for a year. I am back in bro. Sorry man. I was tuning my guitar.

Back now.

Just posted.

Floyd,
One of the best pop song intro`s I`ve heard on this forum, leading into a vocal that`s goose-bumps good.
All the accolades are deserved- a stellar write,performance and production.

I think the song, Let's Stay In , should be the theme song for ALL on-line dating sites during this viral crisis. It's a warm, cuddly, and embracing song featuring inspired Real Track choices, heartfelt harmonies and a sweetly-delivered message of import to all of us "because it's the right thing to do."

Great song challenge idea, 'Guitarhacker' smile !!!

LOREN

P.S. Like what 'Noel96' said, "that something as dark as COVID-19 can inspire such a wonderful song really says a great deal about your singer/songwriter abilities."


LOREN - thanks for the fine review. I appreciate that you had an appreciation for "wait for the fade..." smile

That wasn't a good forum song that focused on COVID. It was a GREAT song, period. Well structured, great harmonies. That song should have legs. Nice work.
