A couple of months ago, I came across Realtracks #3770 (Tin Whistle) and #2582 (a "popping" synth). They inspired me. So I set about creating a song designed around them.

Here is where I ended up...




I hope you enjoy it.

Please feel free to critically comment on any aspect of the song.

All the best,
Noel

Noel,

A song full of sunshine! Such a positive message...

Nice production. Good vocal (a "signature" Noel sound!). Well mixed.

Good to see a new one from you! Hope all is well on your side of the world...

Hi Noel,

Cool retro beach sound. It would have fit right in with so many of the beach movies that were prevalent back in the 60's. You did a great job on the vocals. The band and instruments you chose really fit the genre well. It was a nice departure back to a more innocent time, even just for a moment. Thanks for posting it.

WOW what a fantastic song. Your vocal is spot on. Loved the tin whistle lead, great choice! The popping sounds add a melodic rhythm to the groove, brilliant.

Two thumbs up.

Fantastic and uplifting Noel.

Great choice of instrumentation, the breaks came as a pleasant surprise, and lyrically your rhyming style works perfectly.

Excellent mix. There's a real lot to like about your delivery and production.

This cheerful song flies in the face of the on-rushing tide of bad news we encounter day by day. Very refreshing. I can almost smell the sun-drenched seaweed! Well done.

Take care,

Ghostgum.

Wow, you sure created something special from a tin whistle and synth, Noel. Lovely song, very uplifting --right to touching the sky.

Always pleasure to hear your upbeat lyrics and melodies. The inspiring instruments support beautifully the "touching the sky" mood. I really like the tin whistle RT - flying free like the seagulls. Great production and your pleasant vocal is always something to wait for.

As already said, it's got the signature upbeat Noel sound.

"Sweeping the sea/you and me/...flying free"

Nice rhymes and alliteration.

Love the "stop" at 1:57.

A pleasure to listen to.

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

I certainly enjoy the Noel music genre.

Such a positive, upbeat song.

Engaging melody and lyrics.

Tin whistle is a cool add. Gives it a bit of a Celtic flavor.

"Such a wonderful day
A beautiful world
And a marvellous life
And right here and now
This moment is gold
You, me, sunshine and adventure all align"

Noel, your songs are so joyous! You know what a sentimental sort I (Janice) am and this beautiful song of yours made me smile all the way through. Bud was smiling too!

The tin whistle is a great addition and the entire production is so smooth. We like the stops in the arrangement also. Your vocal, as always, is soothing to hear.

We've always loved the positivity in your songs but these days it is appreciated even more. We hope all is well with you and yours and we look forward to your next song.

Enjoyed it!

Hi Torrey!

....and right back at ya!!! smile You've always been one of my favourite song posters on here. I've picked up quite a bit in instrumentation, presentation and mixing from you over the years. I'm not in your league, but I like having fun. That's all that matters to me.

BIAB is brilliant for creating. With this song, once I heard the two Realtracks, I set out a standard AABA format, created a progression that sounded OK and then let inspiration (or lack of it) lead me.

I personally find the AABA format the easiest to work with. That's why I chose it. Verse-Chorus formats take a bit more effort for me.

Thanks for taking the time to have a listen and to comment. I sincerely appreciate it.

All the very best,
Noel
