I was searching for a song idea when I thought , why not write a song about writing a song ? The first draft included
namechecking many of my favourite artists on this forum but then it occured that you may not like that . But I did leave the best one in.
The essence of the song is to encourage comments (good bad or ugly) in order to improve. When listening to one's song over and over one gets
to the Forrest/Trees point when a fresh pair of ears is required and this forum is the perfect place for that.
So crank the dial up to #11 and here is :

Love it , Hate it , Rate it

_Lyrics_

The music in my head is driving me crazy

Got to get it down but I've been too lazy

Guitars and gadgets are filling up my man cave

Strumming and strumming until I get a brain wave


Love it , Hate it , Rate it.

Won't you tell me what you think

Love it , Hate it , Rate it.

Will it float or will it sink.



I'm taking you along for a ride with me

Bring everything that a song can be

Anything can happen when you fill that void

Learn how to do it when you listen to Floyd


Love it , Hate it , Rate it.

Won't you tell me what you think

Love it , Hate it , Rate it.

Will it float or will it sink.

Thank you Marty.
And thank you also for being the first to comment. It was a nervous wait for a reaction to this song and if one person likes it then I am a happy man.
Cheers Marty.

Wow.... I got to say this is the very first rave dance tune I've heard here, and it's done to a high bar level. My cheap speakers don't do it justice.

Ok... switched to my studio cans.... now that has a proper low end.

I think you should have left the other names in too.... Some years ago in the cakewalk forums someone over there also did a song and named a bunch of the regulars. I did a song that also named a few folks in another forum..... have courage and just do it.

Very cool! Really enjoyed this one.

The shout out to Floyd is well deserved. Loved the harmonies. Very well done.

I guess this is the week to write songs about songwriting. smile I just posted one a few days ago about writer's block.

Thanks for sharing this one!

Steve

The chorus is very New Order Blue Monday and after.
The synth guitar riff is COOOL.
Nicely done - it rocks.

Thank you Herb.
Hey , we got some common ground.
We like reliable band members who don't get drunk ,two daughters , music and motorcyles. Oh and in my case , a long suffering wife who puts up with my noise making smile

Herb wrote >" think you should have left the other names in too"<

I would love to do that and pay homage to the huge amount of talent here of whom I derive so much musical inspiration but my recent arrival here prevents me from taking that liberty .
Thanks Herb for commenting and listening.

Hi Gary
Not often we hear dance tracks on here. Not a genre I'm overly fond of, to be honest, but you've done a good job with this. Nice idea and a great little riff.
Regards,
Leon

Gary,
fun listen for sure. Good ol 90's pumping track, but with light-hearted lyrical theme.
Style reminds me of band 2Unlimited. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Gary,

Excellent!

Great opening. Good combination of drums and vocal to provide an infectious rhythm. Are you saying that that guitar riff in the opening is "Guitar patch on my synth"? It is well done!! Sounds great and adds a nice "signature".

Excellent use of the BIAB Dance RTs. There have been very few examples offered in the Showcase - and this is the best I can remember. There are a number of elements that show a real understanding of the style - the stops and builds are really well done...the pace of the chorus...the crescendo...the ending stop... All show that you "know what you are doing" here.

The vocal is well done and fits the style well. A really good mix.

And a clever write. Who is this "Floyd" that you speak of??? HA! smile

Enjoyed this. A lot.

I read before listening, and guessed Floyd was in the lyrics. SO I liked it already. Cool song, Gary. Interesting style. Really well put together for this song. Love it.

I give it a 93. It's got a good beat and you can dance to it. (Flashback to American Bandstand)

I like it a lot.

OMG , again O....M....G......!!!!!!!!!

I don't know what to say. I was really worried that I did not get your permission to reference you in the lyrics and you would be angry.
I credit you with just about everything I have learnt by listening and studying your wonderful canon of work.I don't know how many times I have watched "the birth of a song"
OOO....MMM....GGG !!!!
Such an honour (catch breath)
Thank you Floyd for your magnificent contribution to the music world.
And of course , a personal THANK YOU.
