The upbeat quality of the song is at odds with the parts I identify with (getting beat up by life) so obviously the true point of the song is the positive message here
Quote:
i look around
at what i got
it ain't real fancy
it ain't a lot
but there's a roof
over my head
and there's a damn good woman
who shares my bed

a faithful dog, three squares
a house full of love
a man would have to be crazy
not to know that's enough

although it has been my experience that far fewer people share that philosophy
But I agree that is the part of life that's worth focusing on, and I thank you for writing a song to point that out

"Enough-ness" : It's a beautiful thing. Any more than enough is too much.
It’s quite a coincidence that Pat should reappear at the same time that you posted this. During Pat’s tour of Fl a few years back we had a conversation about “enoughness” . Your take on this subject is very well conceived and presented in a down to earth conversational tone. Great use of the real tracks and the build is exceptional. Great vocal, production and write. Could it be better? Nah I don’t think so, Tom


Thanks, Tom. Always appreciated...

Thank God for sleep, and thank God for mornings. Sweet song. Loved the dynamic flow clean down to just voice and banjo for just that little bit. Wonderful production and your usual dusty, warm vocals. Really, really nice.

Grateful to have the opportunity to hear this song of appreciation and gratitude for those things that we do have. Stunning message, superb production ... and the songwriting is, well, Floyd Jane standard ... i.e. a standard that someone like me admires and can only aspire to, for now at least :-) THANK YOU for sharing.


Thanks for the very nice comments, James...

And not only that, but your harmony vocals are very very good! I really enjoyed them while thinking "how does he do this or that"?
And the guitarplay is always so nice to listen to.
But I will not forget to mention your lyrics. I hope to come close to your writing skills one day (in English)

With 'I'll be gone' I wrote i hope you never do. With this title I hope you will, but only in a musical sense of course (if that is still posible).

I really enjoyed your song,
Hans


Thanks, Hans. You are always nicely supportive of these efforts...

Nice of you to say. Marty... smile

That is worth the price of admission. Period.

Somebody mentioned Clint Black. We've been fans of him for years and we get the reference...lyrically, melodically and vocally.

Beyond the outstanding write and fine vocals the band is a testimony to the power of BiaB ... in talented hands. The choice of tracks and your mix present a most admirable soundstage. You set a very high bar when it comes to mixes that offer this level of openness and clarity. Oh, and the bit of clawhammer was a nice touch as is your artwork.

Janice said she will be singing it for days.

J&B


Thanks for the great review, y'all. If I can get ANYWHERE close to Clint "lyrically, melodically and vocally" wouldn't THAT be nice... smile
And thanks for the comments on the mix...

I LOVE IT!!! So pleasant, so emotional, so easy to listen to!! You make it look easy....that's what the best in their field know how to do. You have managed to capture the mood perfectly.....that kind of melancholy which is just a part of the human condition.......things are good and I have a lot but still sometimes I struggle. Beautiful arrangement and the perfect vocal delivery......I swear you get to be a better singer every year!! A wonderful slice of FJ wizardry!! Great stuff my friend!! Take care. Greg

These lyrics are so true and something that a lot of us, including myself, take for granted:

i look around
at what i got
it ain't real fancy
it ain't a lot
but there's a roof
over my head
and there's a damn good woman
who shares my bed

This is one fantastic song.


Thanks, Mario. Appreciate that...

Thanks, Charlie. Hope that you will find a way of "movin' on" - sorry for your loss...

All my best to you,

Deej


I appreciate that, Deej... Interesting - I have never seen a Soundcloud ad pop up...

floyd,

The use of Guitars is very fantastic.
The use of other instruments is also wonderful.
I think you really are a master of BIAB.
As Pat says, you are the most prolific songwriter.
And every song is very professional.
Your vocals sound really comfortable as usual.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi
