Hi all

Here is one in response to Herb's Covid-19 song-writing challenge.



The lyrics were written by the wonderful and prolific Liz Petty. The images came from people all over the world staying safe.

Lyrics:
sheltering from the storm
staying safe in place
making time for wonder
slowing down the pace

looking in your eyes
seeing love in your face
navigating changes
with peace truth, and grace

PC
I am here with you
I am here
have no fear

C
let me be a harbor
you can be a guiding light
together we will weather
dark days and stormy nights

love will help us through
and love will always win
shelter in a harbor
that hearts stay safe...
safe within

V2
protecting one another
finding strength inside
taking time for laughter
helping love spread wide

listening to your thoughts
feeling tears you’ve cried
exploring realities
with love...
on our side

Nice work on this and a great point of view.

Challenge accepted and you excelled at it.

Thanks for joining the fun. You did a great job.

Joanne,
A good lyric and anthemic feel. Lovely vocals- I especially like the choral sound of the chorus.

Wow! What a great song! It's perfect for the times we are in; but can expand beyond that.

The feel is so needed right now. The song itself oozes that; and the video put it over the top!

By the way, I always feel there is something slightly abba-ish about your harmonies. If you knew how much I like there vocals, you would know what a big compliment that is. smile

If you don't mind me asking; how long does it take you to put videos together? I like that you add them as you can. I have just found that so time consuming. It's always easy to watch what someone has done to a song and take for granted the work that goes into the video side.

I will admit, I've pulled away from social media and TV to some extent. This is a serious situation, and I do keep educated; but limit the "doom and gloom" thinking. Thank you so very much for posting this...and taking the time the whole package together. This song was a great way to start my morning.

Hi James, Herb, Floyd, Dani, Robert, Shigeki Adachi and Peter

Thanks all for listening and commenting and lifting my spirits in these tough times. In South Africa, we are not even allowed to walk the dog. My West Highland Terrier, Findlay, doesn’t know what is going on. He usually gets two walks a day.

Anyway, I am one of the lucky ones who can work remotely. The company I work for has not closed down for the shutdown. I have been working remotely for almost a month now.

HTL, this particular video didn’t take me too long to make. What took a while was to get hold of all the photos! Once I had these, I used an app on my iPhone called “Quick”. It is made for GoPro and it works so well. I collated three different videos using my phone (the max video length on the iPhone app is about 1 min 20 secs) and then sent the videos to my laptop. I then just cobbled the video together and put in the audio using NCH video pad. My Youtube channel is monetized so it is worth my while to make videos.

My first post! Lovely song- lyrics and performances.
Just finished your ‘First Song With Band in a Box.’ It’s great value and I am actually using Real Band for vocals for the first time too- thanks.

Nice groove and I liked the strong reverb on the vocal, worked well in my opinion. Had a good effect on me and made me want to listen again. And as always, the vocal quality is outstanding. Wish I could sing half as good as that.

Dear Ms. Cooper & Ms. Petty...

Your collaboration was a tangibly heartfelt response to 'Guitarhacker's' thoughtful, unifying songwriting challenge smile.

That style you used, as the younger folks here in America would say, was "da' bomb" laugh. That strong, pounding beat provided a startling and exciting contrast to your vocal performance, which was as clear and engaging as I believe your singing always is.

Ms. Petty, your lyrics sounded inevitable, as though they were the only words that could ever have been attached to Ms. Cooper's music. Your collaboration with her must be one of the great examples of true creative empathy between two artists.

Thank you both for presenting your hopeful and reassuring musical production to the User's Forum members smile !!!

Truth & love,

LOREN

Well done Joanne.

Love the message...hits just the right note and not over the top.

Speaking of notes your vocals and band nailed the feel of the lyric.

Outstanding and we hope lots of folks hear/see it. Nice vid too.

Be well....

Joanne, as usual you have posted another masterpiece!

Great vocals, instrumentation and mix.

You always sound so professional!
