Wow, Greg - this song is fantastic. I really liked the comment from Dave about the chord progression, but I also totally agree with Dave about not analyzing it. This song is poignant, lyrical, and melancholy, and absolutely beautiful. I could totally imagine hearing this song being played on TV, or radio, or in a movie.

Bravo!

A good melancholy ballad touches me, big sadness in the lyrics, chording and the melody. Your voice has always sounded great, but now there is even an extra bit of breaking vulnerability. From the title to the mellow arrangement, every part has found its position in this beautiful perfect work of art.

I also like that you end the choruses, and the song, by going to the minor 6 chord rather than resolving to the tonic. It adds an extra touch of sadness that the song endears. Loved it!

Best to you and yours. Be safe ...

Thanks so much Alan for that wonderful review! Loving your instrumentals lately.....I should say still!! Take care. Greg

Greg,

Nice Song! Very beautiful.
It reminds me of "The shadow of Your Smile" in some way.
Your vocal fits this perfectly.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Frankly, you've demonstrated another dimension to your talents. Big vocal range, provided with lots of precision.

This song encompasses remarkable lyrics, encapsulated in a really well delivered performance.


Thanks so much Trevor! Love you new one!! Take care. Greg

Adele and Celine Dion should be fighting over who gets to record this. IF Barbara Streisand would let them have a chance at it first...

Yesterday, we were listening to some Judy Collins... "Send In The Clowns" and "The Moon's A Harsh Mistress". This stands up to either of those. You mentioned Dianne Warren in your review of my current post. She can't even touch this. Not even close.

Songwriting at its very best.

Your vocal and your production of it are every bit a match for the song quality. GORGEOUS. WOW.

YOU should be a HUGE star. This should be a HUGE hit. Oscar should be calling..

WOW! Thanks so much my friend!! I'm tempted to print this review and put it on my studio wall for inspirations!! Many, many thanks!! Take care. Greg

Hi Greg,

Beautiful sang! And what nice song it is. I'm impressed!
Don't know what to say more, considering all what's been said here.

Take care,
Hans

I really enjoyed this track, and I agree with the other commentors that the sparse track backing fit perfectly with your theme, the melody, and the feel.

But I was mostly concentrating on the singability of your lyric:

Lots of open "O" sounds in the lyric--blow, echo.know, lonliness, show, so cold---perfect choices for your mellow voice and for capturing the feel. And I love your choice of matching the first line ending ("gone") with a second line ending that is kind of a clever rhyme scheme--"lonliness", so the rhyme isn't on the last syllable, or using "echo"--emphasis on the first syllable, but the rhyme on the second syllable. This is getting kind of deep into lyric construction, but I'm guessing you realized this when you made your choices.
