...pretty self explanatory....


BIG DREAMS

do you remember all those big dreams
i talked of all the time
almost every day a new scheme
i know i drove you clean out of your mind
i was gonna be such a big deal
i was gonna conquer the world
wishin' on a star i'd make it real
and give it all to you girl

   promises i'd whisper
   tender soft and low
   but in the end it was just you and me girl
   where'd those big dreams go

tried to make it work in hollywood
nashville and new york, too
making ends meet the best we could
trying to see those big dreams through
but nothing ever seemed to catch hold
nothing really went my way
up against a wall weary and cold
til i finally had to call it a day

   promises i'd whisper
   tender soft and low
   but in the end it was just you and me girl
   where'd those big dreams go

now look at us after all these years
all the hard times, heartaches and tears
we beat the odds we made it through
me and you

   promises we whisper
   you to me, me to you
   in the end it's all we need, girl
   big dreams can come true...

Nice one.

That's a common story that resonates well with the vast majority of folks.... which in the case of a song.... works well.

Loved how the bridge turned it around and refocused on the couple...and that what really matters is the important things....and that's the big dream in the end.

The changes for the chorus are classic, and very effective,in lifting the song and expectations.
I had this cranked as the intro was so gentle and the vocals came in as quite a shock...I then turned things down and started again...works perfectly at "reasonable" volume/levels.
The string squeak at 3.09 either adds authenticity or is annoying - depending on the listener.
It bothered me - but only for a moment.

Yet another sincere, relatable narrative - you do them really well and there's no sign of staleness or overwrought compensating - set to a succinct backing and communicated with THAT voice.

REALLY, really cool.


Cheers

Easy listening - relaxed beat, mellow singing, laid back arrangement. Subtle harmonies. Good mix. The banjo was a nice addition.

And of course, well sung.

One of those writes that signals the "twist" far in advance, but it's still so sweet when it finally lands. laugh

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

Floyd,

You're still at the head of the class teaching the rest of us how it's done!

Love that finger picked guitar in this, it really has a warm sound that is the backbone of the track! Vocals are setting so sweetly in the mix (bg vox also)!

It's another exceptionally good song that should have mass appeal!

You always impress me every time I listen! Thanks, Torrey

Good song. The happy ending was nice. Good story the lyrics tell - that's hard to do. The band was spot on. Good work.

It's always a high point in my day when I click on the forum and you've posted a new tune. I think most people can relate to this song. Most people don't see their dreams realized. To that extent, I thought perhaps your 'happy ending' was unrealistic. But people want a happy ending - no, they need that happy ending. So you made the right call.

Beautiful production that invites multiple listens, as usual.

Enjoyed the story, and loved the vocal! And always enjoy listening to your mixes with the 'phones, just top notch.

Music is an expression that is a universal language, Never criticize anybody to harshly. They need time to grow but when they do, they do. Always be kind in what you say and do because the man upstairs is watching.

Another professional FJ masterpiece.

Outstanding as usual.

A song about big dreams, something all of us had in our youth.

Loved it.
