Never Bring The Sorrow

Following Sad Stories it seemed like a good idea to post a more uplifting song.

Leon - Lyric & vocal
I played guitar & sang a bit of harmony.

Loop in Song: Drums\PopRock8ths^01-ClHtSnr,OpHtSnr
RealDrums [in Song:CongasEv8[single]: a: More High Congab: More Low Conga

Never Bring The Sorrow

Everything looks bleak today
But that may change tomorrow
Every life has joy, my friend
And every life has sorrow

But you only bring the joy
You only bring the joy
You only bring me joy
Never bring the sorrow

Every thought is taking me
To places best avoided
Itchy fingers, sabres drawn
Ignorance exploited

Diplomacy is what we need
But all the talk I hear is violent
Sure wish you would call me
But the phone just lays there silent

Cause you only bring the joy
You only bring the joy
You only bring me joy
Never bring the sorrow

I know that we’ve been here before
And still the world keeps spinning
But somehow this feels different
It’s like the Devil’s winning

I need you like I never have
Restore my optimism
To get me looking at the world
Through another prism

Because you only bring the joy
You only bring the joy
You only bring me joy
Never bring the sorrow
Never bring the sorrow
Never bring the sorrow
Never bring the sorrow
Never bring the sorrow

Nicely done Peter - really enjoyed the lyricism here and though your delivery was on point. The harmonies are nice, as is your guitar work here. Thanks for sharing!

Loved this tune. Excellent vocal Leon. Excellent harmony as well Peter. Was that a dobro you are playing. Loved that.

Hi PeterF,

This is a really cool tune y'all have put together. The music and the vocals/harmony have a really calm, soothing and "homey" feel. It has the sound of a song from a time when the world was not so complicated and a whole lot less evil. Thanks for posting it. I enjoyed the listen.

Peter & Leon,
That was exactly what I needed today (and perhaps longer than just "today") Easy to grasp vocals and excellent playing. Listens very well. Thank you for sharing this!

Misha.

Peter & Leon,

"I need you like I never have
Restore my optimism
To get me looking at the world
Through another prism"

Yes to whoever inspires you to write that!
Very singalong folky and warm with some tasty guitar breaks.

Hi Peter and Leon,

This is a wonderful listen. I love these lyrics, the lead vocals and the harmony, and they all sit ever so comfortably against a perfect backing! You've pulled out all stops with this.

When Leon first started singing, he reminded me of Slim Dusty. And I mean that as a huge compliment. Slim had a wonderfully engaging way of leading audiences along with his vocals as he told a story.

Really nice work!
Noel

Love the write, Leon. Vocals sound great too, both the lead and harmonies.

Good build, I like the way it starts with the Congas before bringing the drums in.

Super tasteful guitar work, loved the intro and solo(s)

Good one, Peter and Leon!

It's a good thing.
Well done.
I do think you ought to spend a little time to find that strident/aggressive freq. in Leon's voice and cut it back with some EQ on the vocal track. It'd be a simple cut that could sit there quietly doing nothing until that sound appears in the vocal.
Alternately a De- esser can be set to the same freq and do it automatically for you as needed.
Cool song though.

"I need you like I never have

That drew Janice like a magnet smile

Nice vocal performance ... lead and harmony.

The guitar bits are excellent and very melodic in nature.

You called in some fine Biab musicians for this and they laid down some great tracks. Also the congas were a nice touch -- we have used and really like that track and the 8th's keep it unobtrusive. The accordion was a nice addition.

We love this and we also love Misha's latest ... back to back they offered quite the contrast smile in a fun way.

You two never disappoint!

Hello PeterF,

You know your words do us a lot of good in these dark times. Your soft voice reinforces your words. It's a very pleasant composition and we will ask for more. Very nice.

Kindly regard
