Stalled in seclusion. Man, I gotta get out more. You folks are really making some good things come out of this pandemic, and I am so grateful for your inspiration through these times. On Monday the builders return to continue our new home. We were supposed to be moving in this week, and I expected to be building the next studio, but... Many others are having it worse, but thanks for making it better with your music.

Baby, Baby Love on YouTube
Baby, Baby Love on SoundCloud

Baby, Baby Love

It's late in September and it's time to remember
all the time that's passed us by.
You can go your own way and I can go my own way,
or we can give love a try.
Oh, baby I'm tellin' you this argument isn't new.
Let love find a way.

Remember? One day I noticed you and Tuesday
they told us two like us is hard to find.
So quickly the changes come and one day we'll live as one
if we don't change our mind.
Remember that lovin' seems to satisfy broken dreams,
and I still dream of you.

CH: So let's baby love. Babe, we gotta baby love.
Simply take our crazy love and cradle it as though
it's nothin' but a baby love. Babe, we gotta baby love.
Hold it tight, then maybe love will take root and grow.

And however clearly we can see that it's dreary,
we can see light up ahead.
I promised you roses and another day closes,
but my love you get instead.
Our love lies a' cryin' –oh, no, it's not dying. May wet. Maybe wet.

CH

CH: Baby, baby, baby love. Baby it's a crazy love,
satisfied by making love, but this baby makes two –me & you.
Oh, Babe, we gotta baby love. Baby, let's just baby love.
Baby love then maybe love will grow into old age.

END: Baby love. My baby, baby love.

You are so talented, it's unreal. Love it. Understated yet excellent, tells the story through beautiful music without anything "extra" that would be totally unnecessary. It takes skill and talent to do it like that, I find :-) Bravo.

Hope your move goes well!

Hey Marty,

Man, this is great! Really good writing. Also dig your vocal and of course the bass playing.

Did you take the photos you used in the video? I recognise Bryce Canyon, we were there last year. Very cool place.

Hello Marty,

You sure have some surprises in your repertoire, but all very attractive. And this one is certainly no exception!
This song was from 1991? I had to think of some songs from that time. The name Marvin Gaye circles in my head, but he died in 1`984. But I'm so bad with names... Barely know mine.
But focussing on the song; it was nice hearing you sing with a somewhat brighter voice. Or was it your voice from 1991?
I also liked the lyrics. Long lines of text with all kinds of messages in it: 'Remember that lovin' seems to satisfy broken dreams,
and I still dream of you' Very nice!

I hope the inconveniences of your housing issues and studio won't last too long, otherwise we have to miss you also, or not?

Hans

Marty,

Great production, excellent lyrics, delivered with quality and polish.

An excellent vocal performance tops it off, completely. Really well done.

Thanks, Dave. Yeah, I started going to Zion and Bryce in 2008. We've been there 10 or 11 times by now. My soul lives in Zion and I try to visit as often as possible. We're getting along so much better now.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Marty,

Nice song. I like the hook idea.

A cool choice of style for the song - kinda 60's pop...

Bass sounds really good. And a good strong vocal (though I think it has a little more high EQ than it needs which makes it pop out of the mix a little).

Catchy. Still in my head after the song is finished - always a good thing...

Thanks, Hans. Nah, my voice for '91 was much higher --hehe. You should hear THAT version. I think I lowered the key like a full step and a half here.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks, Floyd. 60s pop was where I was headed. Kinda like a James Jamerson does Doo Whop thing.

A flashback to the 1960's. Love it!

A super vocal backed with the perfect instrumentation. Great bass line, outstanding lyrics and mix.

This is outstanding!

Marty,
A different and very catchy side of your music- the chorus had me singing along.
Echoes of some pop standards and that means you had some good inspiration.
Sharing the gratitude- I like that.... good luck with your building!

Hi Marty ...

Talk about catchy! Love music from that era ... grew up in the 1950s and 1960s. Great vocal over a super band and with a terrific lyric. Great listen ... still humming it as I write this. Damn ... I'll be humming this all day! But that's okay ... a cool one to have on the brain!

Best to you and be safe ...

Alan

Baby love that lyric...all that delicious internal rhyme and the turn of phrase. The love is the baby. The whole groove is inviting and fun and your playful delivery of those lines makes me smile big. Hugely enjoyed.

Hi Marty,

This is a really nostalgic sounding song. It took me back to listening to songs like "Under the Boardwalk".

Your song has the same feel and that 50's and early 60's sweet, innocence.

Thanks for posting it, I enjoyed listening to it.

Marty,
excellent tune in spirit of PoP love ballads of 60s. Heck, you even managed to make whole thing sound like Golden hits. You are very talented song writer. Liked it a lot. Would be fun to hear original version too smile Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Thank you, Peter. I started playing in '63 and can't get it outta my head --maybe heart... maybe fingers... probably soul.

Thanks, Misha. The original is a bit irritating to the ear. Ironically I didn't play bass on it --just keys (including horn parts) and guitars, and (cringe) drum machine. It's one of the few recordings where I played the guitar solo. If you really want to hear it, well, here's an Mp3 from an old site http://www.basssick.com/mp3/mod/babylove.mp3
