I'm In It For The Minute on Soundcloud
I'm In It For The Minute on YouTube

This is an original song about how Rock 'n' Roll --music in general-- satisfies our primal desire for elation. Well, actually I'm not sure what it's about, but I now use that description after reading the lyrics I wrote. It's up to your interpretation. One thing I'm sure of is that when I added "I'M In It" to the working title of For The Minute, I got another minute. Hear it? Get it?

Man, ya gotta love those Utility Tracks!

I'm In It For The Minute (It's all about alliteration. There are 83 Ts and 69 Ss in the lyrics. That's a sibilance test. Thanks for teaching me how to fix them, RayC et al.)
Comments and suggestions help us grow. Thanks for all you do folks.


CH: I'm in it for the minute. I'm in it for the rock and roll.
I'm in it 'cause you're sending it to me. Tryin' to be neighborly to save my soul.

Can't you see that I love you? Don't you know that it's true?
I like special somethings on Sundays, like sundaes on Sundays and you.
Like the cherry on the whipping, there's the ice in the cream,
So step outside of your slumber, and stare back into your dream. See me? CH

Down the road there's a fire burning out of control.
They're burning all of them lost ol' souls that don't dig rock and roll.
Make a break to relieve them. Teach them all the 3 chords.
Then give each one a pink Cadillac, and let them fill in these words because CH

BR: Baby, don't ya hear the music? Don't it make ya wanna dance?
Rock 'n' Roll is more than music.
It takes this certain feelin', mixes in the reelin',
and sometimes it'll twist you in a trance. SOLO

Situation seeming hopeless? Well, RnR is all ya need
to satisfy that savage soul who sows such sickly seed.
Still the beast deep inside us, the one we met in paradise.
So stay right here beside yourself, and Rock 'n' Roll will suffice. Sing this: CH


Enjoy whatever happens!

Marty,
great melody, good narrative and a BIG band.
I r=that pumping piano in the choruses really sets the era and feel.
You might consider making some space for the kick in that big bass by using a high pass at 100 but it's not really essential.
BIG vibe, big chorus and BIG fun.


Cheers

Marty, this is one great song! Love the groove and the Benny Goodman lead! Great vocal, backing tracks, and a superior mix. i.e. everything was crystal clear.

Two thumbs up.

Catchy and toe-tapping.

Honestly, you had me at the title. Great backing tracks with a groove that doesn't stop. Sounds great on my speakers. Your vocal is upbeat and enthusiastic, and the harmonies are a treat.

Really fun! smile

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

Marty,

Love the write—and the melody that goes with—you have a nice way of touching that inner toe-tapping self. Great harmonies on that chorus . . . and on that bridge. You are a talented songwriter. And, boy, that clarinet solo just slays. Great stuff!

All my best to you,

Deej

Haha. The pink Caddy is more for the cosmetic folks, but it seemed to fit. Thanks. I'm learning a lot here about mixing, so I thank you for your help with that. I minute for the minute is where I get 2 minutes.

Hello Marty,

It's an interesting song.
It's a song just like the time of its birth when rock and roll separates from old jazz.
Nice groove!
Your singing is great.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best Regards.

Hi, Ray. Thanks, and thanks for the idea on the bass drum. I really wish we had separate tracks for the drums to play with in mixing.

Thanks, Mario. Benny could wow and audience for hours with just him and his clarinet on stage. It's usually difficult to fashion a solo from the RTs, but when they work it's sweet.


Enjoy whatever happens!

That was damned good. Well played and well written. You found a great melody in that tune. Cool video too.

Golden lyric alert:

"So step outside of your slumber, and stare back into your dream."

Nice.

Rock and Roll with a swinging clarinet solo!

I really enjoyed this tune good old-time rock and roll. There is something about this that makes me think of Elvis Costello (perhaps an influence of yours?).

Great melody, your voice sounds great when you jump up to higher pitches during the verse.

The video's great. Where did you get the clips? Really cool lyric sliding around effects, is that hard to do?

Thanks for sharing

Great work putting this entertaining track together. Always love the animated enthusiasm of your vocal . Clarinet and R&R , who would have thunk it? But you made it work. "Teach them all the 3 chords.
Then give each one a pink Cadillac, and let them fill in these words because

Band sounds good and the singer is at the top of his game. Fun Fun Fun.
