Another old one updated, always wanted to write an old-time jazz song with loads of steamy sax

https://soundcloud.com/japokeapeg/ancient-song

Ancient Song

1. I don’t really care if you frown
An ancient song is playing in my bones
The piano player aint played his last key
So I’m just gonna sit here and drown

2. The red lights mingle with the smoke
As I was just about to give up hope
A girl in red dress clashes with my hair
And asks me why it is I’m getting’ soaked

3. She talked like a warm summer breeze
And the ice began to unfreeze
I looked in her eyes, deep pools of blue
As she played her tune in strange keys

4. So I don’t really care if you frown
An ancient song is playing in my bones
The piano player just played his last key
And now it’s time to find home

Very cool. I really enjoyed that. Definitely has an old time smoldering jazz feel. Which BIAB instruments did you use? I especially like that horn. And I dig the guitar when it comes in.

Great feel. I enjoyed your lyrics and vocals. What effect/plugin are you using on your voice?

I think I'd like to hear this with the 3rd as the main vocal...it's tone & freq suit the style.
The guitar solo is nice but it doesn't really match the style.'The general feel is a bit 68-71 music hall influences psych - something a Pink Floyd or Beatle would've done to be a little spooky.

rayc,
Thanks. You're spot on, it was influenced by the Beatles' Honey pie and is meant to be spooky!

Nostalgic little ditty.

Always need to be cautious of those red dress women.

Very cool song. I do hear a Beatles vibe in the tune. Sax is cool. Excellent guitar work. Well done

Hello japokeapeg,

It's nice this jazzy composition. Your lyrics recreates a late night atmosphere in a bar. Pleasant but volatile encounters. This is the charm of life. Lots of encounters and memories. Well done

Kindly regard
