Hello biab friends.

I wrote THIS SONG for my keenager friend who recently celebrated her 60th.

All comments good or bad are welcome.

Lyrics

Come on girl don't hesitate
Have some fun it's not too late
Break that chain around your neck
Throw away your self respect

Come on and do it, do it, don't say maybe
Go Crazy, Forget that you're a Lady

Don't explain to those you know
Your new wardrobe of sexy clothes
Kiss your boring self goodbye
This witches brew will get you high

Come on and do it, do it, don't say maybe
Go Crazy, Forget that you're a Lady

The time has come to raise the bar
Go get 'em girl you are a star
Your Mama's rules are no excuse
It's up to you to cut the noose.

Come on and do it, do it, don't say maybe
Go Crazy, Forget that you're a Lady

Hi, Gary.

If you put the song title on top, in bold, and linked to the SoundCloud, it'll be easier for lazy people like me to find. Just sayin'. wink

Catchy, and harmony (with effects) on the chorus is especially cool.

The fade at the end was a bit abrupt.

Nicely done! laugh

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

Garry,
Very picturesque tune. A fun video would compliment this wonderful song. Well constructed and played! Vocals- super. Slowdown ending is a candy. Mixed very well. Nothing I would change. Good one! Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

The guitar solo could come up a dB...the power chords seem louder than it.
I REALLY like the organ flourishes.

It's a rocking tune for certain and your additions help make it all the better.
The DY of lady on the outro gets swallowed abit...is it possible to lift that a little as I heard the outro as "You're a layyyyyyyyyeeeee".
Well done, a cracker.

Gary, a real toe tapper. Super vocal and lyrics with a great message. The backing band was excellent.

Great rock n roll!

Great rocker, good intro riffing, classic stuff with Deep Purple vibe (organ fits well).
Nice funny and positive message.
Enjoyed your vocals.
Very good instrument selection, guitars are in fire. Strong drumming, sounds like there's two drummers.
This should be a hit!

Rock on man. Excellent.

Great performances by you and the BiaB folks.

Getting a little David Crosby vibe here.

And all is wrapped in a mix that sounds excellent on the KRKs.

Well done!

PS Kinda easy to fall into the theme as we recorded a PD song called Wild Women smile

Hi Gary,

A very rocky song. I like it very much.
I agree with Ray the leadguitar is too shy. Give him some more power!
The vocals are very cool.

Well done!
Hans
