What I'd Do For Your Kiss on Soundcloud
What I'd Do For Your Kiss on You Tube
--which sounds like an odd title itself.

The chorus is something I'd often say to my wife. It's kind of my way of saying Hayna or Ain't it. You know, the rise in inflection at the end of a statement that asks for confirmation from the listener. In French it's “n'est-ce pas,” some Canadian's say, “eh.” Yeah, I've been talking with Stefan Crossroads a lot lately, and he's so well learned in languages. Anyway, I thoroughly appreciate all comments.

What I'd Do For Your Kiss

California sunset sky holding back the sea tonight.
Once your eyes are satisfied we'll go home.
Breathing in all the cool night air, we stroll the beach without a care.
We'll wave goodbye to moonlit skys, and finally we're alone.

CH: You know what I mean. You know where I'm comin' from. You know where I'm goin' with this.
You know what I mean to say. You know what I'm gettin' at. You know what I'd do for your kiss.

Sometimes we may find ourselves among a crowd of wishing wells.
Soon enough we'll have had enough and head home.
Before we sleep we'll relax a bit soaking up the feel of it,
Turn out the lights and say good night, and finally we're alone. CH

BR: Ask me to lasso the moon and the stars. Tell me just what I should do.
I'll buy a big house and a couple of cars. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you.


Enjoy whatever happens!

A VERY pleasant Island-inspired Love song!

The BAND is well put together.

Bass is Butter (Yum!)

Dave's guitar is its always tastiness.

Good vocals. Nice mix.

A terrific listen. That chorus is SOOOOO catchy!!!

Marty, catchy chorus and relaxing swingy island sound to it. Quite a different sound than "Bad Advice" or some of your others.
the blues have made it to the islands! You are a very versatile musician!

Marty,
nice one - good ensemble...def has a slow Kokomo feel.
The only thing that jumped at me was that your voice seems unusually sibilant on this one.
Mr Bell rings it as expected.


Cheers

Really cool groove to this song Marty. Think it had allot to do with the very cool bass lines. Loved the vocal and catchy lyrics. Daves guitar was excellent as well. Cool tone. Well done

Marty...what a sweet song...I think you just wrote the perfect anniversary song...it's light and fun but gets right down to the brass tacks...as usual, you and Dave can really lay down the most appropriate tracks for your songs...your vocals are really cool on this song...AND another cool video!...5 stars man!

Marty,

This listens very well! Have I ever told you that you've got a great voice? If not shame on me! This song is a joy to listen to! Your harmonies are beautiful! You and Dave both did an excellent job on your respective instruments! Floyd nailed it with the Island feel comment! I always smile when I see a new post from you because I know it's going to be good!

Thanks, Torrey

Aren't we men all beggars?
I hope I'm not,... and if I am I hope I can disguise it properly ;-).

That being said your song sounds cozy, sunny and Pro all the way. That backing vocal on the chorus and the bridge (!) work a charm as well.

And then there's Dave's (more Dave Gilmour sound this time) power guitar.

All good :-).

Nice!!! :-) Made me smile, the whole way through. What a feel-good song! Nice one :-)

The solo at 2:35 is super, and nothing short of it. Love the brief, percussive introduction to it.

Your voice is so mellow and relaxed and generally cool, it's wonderful to hear! :-)

Definitely one of the best I've heard from you. There's always a litmus test with me, and that's this: do I go back for a second listen? If so, the song is more than just good - and I'm listening again and again to this one :-)

Joyous and joyful.

Thank you, Dani, Scott, Brad, Nigel, Scott C., Dan, Torrey, Ray C., Mario, Rob, Eric, James & Bob. I thoroughly appreciate all of your comments, They drive me to the next song. Our 7-year old granddaughter Charley takes up a lot of time (with no complaints from me) in the summer, so I must hurry to hear some new treats here by you folks.

Ray, you're right. I seem to be having even more trouble with sibilance. I always think of you and your sound advice when I process the vocals. Not sure if this recent trouble is because of too much reverb, proximity to mic or if it's just this old-guy mouth of mine. I'm working on it. Thanks again.


Enjoy whatever happens!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
