Hi All,

Here’s a song that has gone through several writing & arrangement iterations over the years.

I finally got around to properly recording it - this is called MOONSHOT.

Miles between us
On the coast or outer space
Flying tonight
Every route feels untrue
Kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

Lines round my eyes
The years above the radar
Flying away
Will somehow have to do
Kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was true
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

Catch an updraft
Watch the clouds fade away
Flying this way
Navigate without a crew
Kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was true
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

BIAB Tracks:
2474: Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085
2505: Piano, Electric, HeldChords 085

832: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm, AltCountryMoody Ev 075

As always - thanks for listening!

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the listen - I enjoyed your song.

The vocal style is reminiscent of Bob Dylan.

Well done.

Best Regards

Bob,

I always enjoy hearing your songs. Always well-written, always sung with conviction and passion, always nicely produced.

You make BIAB sound like YOUR band. Here again. Good mix.

Good one!

(I also always like your album covers!)

Bob,
BIG sounding tune. Good choice of instruments. Acoustic/ electric guitar choice was a nice marriage. Good lyrics and performance.
Mix is clear, listens well. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Oh, yeah, Bob. Every song you do is soo good in every way. Your vocal always tops the bill and the lyrics that you write for it gives it such a relaxed and polished feel. Great band and well produced and mixed.

Really nice. You chose an excellent backing band to show off your great vocal and words.

Pro sounding, and beautifully done.

Nice one, Bob. Like those power chords. Your usual excellent vocal and lyrics (although I must admit to puzzling a little over the line 'wish this tired old moonshot was you').

Leon
