Based on a true story cool.

Lyrics are included on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYhCCIuzUd4

I wrote this song this last summer and I set out to do everything on keyboard as I had just bought the M-Audio Keystation49 MK3 on sale for $99 (regularly $119). With limited keyboard skills, I did this simple song, bass, keyboards, and pad I played from the keyboard and the provided plugins that came with it. It's unbelievable what you get for $99, the keyboard, and over 2,000 sounds.

At the end of the day, I couldn't resist and added guitar.

After the great data loss of 2021, I now don't know what I did for the drums, perhaps BIAB, perhaps EZDrummer2. The only record I have of the tune is on YouTube.

Thanks in advance for checking it out.

I have to agree with Scott.

Very nice, Frank! I like the story (I have a similar one from around the same time period)

Good vocal delivery and nice touch on the guitar, very tasteful and melodic with great feel.

Enjoyed!

Very relaxing song with a touching lively romantic story.
The interpretation has very personal touch - really like the nostalgia in your voice. Also enjoyed the guitar playing.
The video images support the story well.

Frank,

A nice song. Good write.

Good vocals. Nice job with the keyboard. The bass sounds especially good. Nice guitar, too...

Well mixed.

All around good.

I didn't know Sangria was bottled.
When I drank I didn't mind this sort of punch at all.
Nice story - 1975 - I was an ancient 18.
I'm glad you added the guitar it really works.


Cheers

Nice song, good singing and great guitar. A few of the lyrics didn't flow as well as they could have. But still an enjoyable song. Nicely done!

I like this one a lot! As TuneMonger said, it could have had a bit more flow... but it doesn't really detract from the song.

Sorry to hear of the Great Data Loss of 2021.

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

$99!!

M-Audio Keystation49 MK3 sells for $429 Aussie dollars over here (that's USD $320). You sure got a bargain.

Liked your song. It was worth a 2nd listen.

Take care,

Ghostgum.

Frank, this is a fantastic song. Loved those background synth sounds. Super groove and vocal. Great bass line and wow what a sweet guitar! Excellent video also.

Two thumbs up.
