Take care

On this Road

What if we could leave, leave everyday life,
pack our things, take a chance and leave it all behind.

Oh, what if we could create a new path,
straight ahead into the wide open.

On this road, open road
I feel alive, alive again somehow.
On this road, open road
I feel my love, my love for you, for you.
Even if we get lost on the way.
I just know we will find back on track again.

What if we could built a ferry for the flow.
Follow where the water falls,
wherever it may go.

Oh, what if we could create a new path.
No, there is no turning back, just moving straight ahead to the wide open.

I clicked on the link ready to comment and wondered about how we've interacted in the past. I found you've not commented on anyone else's work since May last year. On that basis I'll demure.

Nice catchy song. Good arrangement - good contrasts. Excellent pop - rhythmically interesting, contrasting sections, very hook-y. smile

And vocally, you always sound great!

In the past, I think I've complained that your high end was a bit too brittle for my tender ears. That's not a problem here - I can turn up the volume without the high end becoming painful or the mix sounding unbalanced. laugh

Some minor nits about pronunciation, though.

The vowel sound on "track" in "back on track" is being softening it so it comes across as "truck". (Just in case, I ran it through Spleeter and isolated the vocal to make sure my ears weren't playing tricks on me).

The lyric "leave everyday life" also doesn't come across clearly. You've almost dropped the /V/, and put an /UH/ sound in front of the word "day". I'm mis-hearing the line as "leave that free day alive". My son - who has much better hearing than me - heard it as "leave that great daylight".

An excellent track! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

It is true that this forum should be a two way street! Take care. Greg

I'll give you a pass this time as I do not know your situation.

I think this is a great song. Super vocal, nice instrumentation, and a good mix. What's not to like about that!

Excellent song.

Ms. King...

Every couple that is struggling in their relationships with each other should have the opportunity to listen to and feel the reaching-for-the-sky energy in this song. It's exhilarating in its upbeat musicality and hopeful lyrics. I love the subtle way you harmonized your vocal. The songs feels free and playful in its form. It's a gift.

I’ll echo pretty much every thing that David said above..plusses and suggestions. One thing I’ll add..I think that your opening line could be improved..the way you broke up “cou—ould” into two syllables to cover the melody notes wouldn’t be a bad idea if you were going to continue that pattern throughout...but a better approach would be to re-engineer that first phrase...that’s what I wou—ould do!

We want you to know, that your feedback always helpes us a lot to improve our work and encourages us to keep on trying and that we really appreciate you taking the time and making the effort to comment on our songs like we always try to communicate. We also were able to get to know some members and correspond with them via messages, received a lot of good advice there too and are very grateful for the collaborations, that came out of this. We always wondered, if it was okay to be in the Forum without responding a lot to the work of other members in the users showcase, because we simply did not find enough time to do so properly. You are absolutely right, everybody here deserves appropriate Feedback on his or her work, we want to apologize, if we offended anybody in not doing so. Best Regards and Take care.
Rebecca and Jochen

I like the song and the vocals very much.
The "radio" EQ on parts is a bit much and somewhat distracting from the rest of the arrangement.
