A co-write with my buddy Reid Richmond.
Since this song was published and pitched by Sony/ATV there is a knock-out demo for it.
That demo would EASILY win any comparison to the version that I have created.
Hands down. No question.
It has the perfect hat-act-cowboy-singer vocal and all the perfect fiddle and guitar licks.
(It was pitched to most of the top hat-acts at the time. 1998-ish)
I don't have that type voice and it would be tough to get BIAB to include the type of fills and licks that happen in the original.
(not impossible, but a good deal of work. And since I can't sing that style well, there wasn't much point in trying)
That being the case I will not include the original demo initially.

I decided to produce it as a sort of Country-Lite/Americana/Songwriter thing.
I think I can pull that off.

After a week or so, I will include a link to the original somewhere in this thread.
...if you feel like hearing it, stop back by later
(it will be obvious why I don't include it to start with...guaranteed)

GOOD THING I GAVE MY HEART TO YOU

forgot to run the dryer, my jeans are soaking wet
the dog's missing and we're late for the vet
haven't seen the check book in a couple of weeks
the phone's ringing again.... now, where could it be
i got the dog in the car, now i can't find my keys
if it ain't one thing it's another with me
   
   good thing i gave my heart to you
   no tellin' all the trouble it'd be gettin' into
   knowing all the stupid things that i can do
   good thing i gave my heart to you
   good thing i gave my heart to you

mama always said, (and you know she's never wrong)
i'd probably lose my head if it wasn't screwed on
half of my stuff would never be found
if it ain't locked up, nailed shut or tied down
but one part of me... i'll always know where it'll be
it's the only thing i ever lost intentionally
   
   good thing i gave my heart to you
   no tellin' all the trouble it'd be gettin' into
   knowing all the stupid things that i can do
   good thing i gave my heart to you
   good thing i gave my heart to you


one part of me... i'll always know where it'll be
it's the only thing i ever lost intentionally
   
   good thing i gave my heart to you
   no tellin' all the trouble it'd be gettin' into
   knowing all the stupid things that i can do
   good thing i gave my heart to you
   good thing i gave my heart to you




Have at it.
Have fun.
Any type comments.

Man, this song sounds like it could be on the radio now, but I think would have really shined in the 90's! I hope that makes sense? There are so many artists I think could have really run with this song. One, maybe not so obvious choice...I would have loved to hear Nitty do this song up.

[[COMMENTS DELETED : Warning-you have used the same comments too many times in this users posts. It appears you may be spamming 'floyd jane' The use of bots on the forum are strictly prohibited]]

I hope that detailed every possible compliment I could possibly give. It's just such a great toe tappin', light hearted, up beat song to listen to! Thanks for the "feel goods."

-Chad

HI Floyd ...

Back after some really bad weeks. This is a terrific way to come back!

Like it a lot. The singer that came to my mind isn't one of the hat guys, though. I imagined Billy Currington put his polish on this in his understated way. But I'm sure there some of those hat acts who would like to get their hands on this one.

As always... splendid music!

Alan

Exceptional song buddy.

Everything about it is good. Catchy and hooky as all get out.

I played it for Tater Totts and he said:

"If that *%2@@*&&^%% wrote more country classics like this instead of making fun of me I would buy every single ^&&(^%%%%##@@@ record he has ever made."

Then he walked off.

I tried to explain that he had you all wrong, but anyway, the whole point is Tater Totts loves it and I can tell he jealous.

That is a good thing.

smile

Means you are on to something.

Your voice is the return of a good friend.
If this isn't a patch on the demo I need to hear it as this version is excellent.

Very cool groove to this song. Loved the lyric. Could relate to quite of few situations the poor fella had happening. Super vocal Floyd. This should have been a hit..

Good songs never get timed out and this is a really good one...if the demos better then it must be a Jim-dandy...loved every part of it...your stuff is always top of the food chain and very tasty...obviously all of us guys can identify with the lyrics or at least most of them...super job on the vocals and the band was tight IMO...loved the hook!

nice one.... This is a good song like they used to write in Nashville for the artists. Along the lines of Carleen Carter, Juice Newton and a few others.


I like that double hit at the end of the choruses.

Man, I love that red comment by C. Aaron. That's so true for me regarding all your songs, Floyd. Yeah, this should be a hit; maybe it just needs a relief pitcher from the Sony bullpen. I'm sure I'm a bit (or a lot) biased here, but ain't no one can sing this better than you. I'll be looking forward to the demo, but no matter how many talented players contribute to it, the write will always be the part the shines brightest.

HAHAHAHAHA!!

Thankgod the forum software is finally updated with proper warnings.

Nitty. An interesting choice. goes to show what a style change can accomplish - if you heard the original demo first, I'm certain you would make a different choice...

Thanks for the listen and comments...

Floyd, looks like you've intentionally found the 'heart' and 'roots' of Floyd Jane again. This is very much in the wheelhouse where you sat a few years ago. It's very well written, lyrically strong, the message is clear and concise. Production and performance spot on. Once again, what's become the typical, a top notch Floyd Jane song. I enjoyed this one more than a little bit. Good stuff.

Charlie

Just great Floyd. It's easy to see why it got as far as it did, but I feel sorry for the ones who didn't record it. It's got the makings of a hit all over it. Thanks for putting it out here for us to hear.

IMHO this is a hit as it is and should be on the radio right now!

Super vocal and lyrics

Perfect backing tracks

As usual a fantastic mix

Loved it

Catchy and engaging. Superb stuff. Be interesting to hear the early version.

Excellent vocal mix and lyric.

Hard to go wrong with those elements in place.

Thanks, Alan.
Currington is an interesting choice. His earlier stuff was good (People Are Crazy) - but, man! an lot of people hated his last album (mostly those who don't want Country to change at all).
