New BIAB Song - Life is Good

https://soundcloud.com/ekayne/life-is-good

Life is short, life is hard
Life is going out and doing the job
Life is love Life is good

Life is you life is me
Life is what we make it to be
Livin our lives life is good

Life is long life is tough
Life is having someone you can trust
But Lovin life, Life is good

Waking up next to you
Seeing your eyes when they open
Gives me a feeling like
I’m the luckiest man in the world

Nice! The intro sets up the song nicely; the scaled down the first verse sets up the build nicely. The build through the track and additional instruments keeps interest, but stays in the "island" feel.

My ears are a bit occluded, so I don't trust them when listening to the balance. But the important thing - the vocal - is nice and clear throughout. The "simple" lyrics are an excellent match to the musical style. Good write.

Everything in this song works for me.

I like this song a lot! laugh

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

Pretty song. Liked the percussion tracks, and the upbeat nature of the song.

Good melody and vocal.

Nice work.

Love the chord progression on the intro.
I found this delicate and uplifting.
Very well constructed.

Elliott,
Nice one! Happy tune. We definitely need more of these days! Vocals & mix is very good. Listens well. A good companion for a reggae theme song you posted some time ago. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.
