The horns aren't perfect on this, but I did the best I could do. Sam Efford of fiverr handled the vocal.

Lyrics:

I've lost my way, no place to play in Loveland
The games afoot but I've been hobbled here
I must admit, no fun is it in Loveland
When you're alone and there's nobody near

I'd love to take off running, chasing somebody to woo,
But you're not here, will you appear? Alakazam! It's you!

It's magic and fun, with more than one, in Loveland,
But when you're alone, what a sad affair

SOLO

I'd love to take off running, chasing somebody to woo,
But you're not here, will you appear? Alakazam! It's you!

It's magic and fun, with more than one, in Loveland,
But when you're alone, what a sad affair

T.M...This is a step into the "way back machine"...this is such a great sounding piece of music...so well written and though Sam did a stellar job on the vocals I would love to hear Tony Bennet do this one!...great, great melody and so '40's sounding...this is the best I've heard BiaB horn section sound! I love the title and hook...this belongs on vinyl for sure!!

Add some record crackle and this could be from the forties or fifties.

Beautiful song!

Hi TuneMonger,

I love this song - right up my alley.

Great melody and lyrics.

Excellent vocals. I note he sounds a little tentative in the first verse (I know the feeling) but really gets into it from the first chorus to the end.

Superb backing.

I've listened three times and it gets better with each listen.

Made my day.

Best Regards
Nigel

Sounds great to me, cool old school vibe with both the music and the lyric.

Horns sounded good to me, and your vocalist did a fine job.

Listened yesterday and also a couple of times this morning, really well-done in all aspects IMHO.

Love this, Bob!! Man, the chord changes and melody and the way you arranged the orchestra is perfect. Good choice of vocalist. The mix is Goldilocks good, and the horns work just fine.

Well, as evidenced by Peter and Janice’s last song, she loves this big band style song. smile

Your vocalist is a fine crooner and the band, including the horns, sounds great.

We can see the protagonist sitting alone at a corner table watching the other couples dance.
In an old B&W film of course. smile

And a nice write.

Kudos!

not my genre , but certainly i think its a lovely and well done song imho.

it reminds of a sultry 3 am bar in soho london.
(makes me remember some crazy nites of my youth...lol.)

if i can make a suggestion ..in my mind i heard a female vocal alernating verses with your male vocal verses..
imho that would send the song flying.


well done mate.

happiness.

Oh yeah!!! Great composition. I love the big band sound. You picked a good vocalist and got your money's worth. I picture people at the dance hall in a black and white film. Again, great song! Loved it.

Nice one...managing horn sections in BIAB is hard yakka but you've done a good job.
The band works well.
The vocalist let a few sibilant bits through but it isn't bad.
Nice one.

The lyrics are perfect for the genre; especially that "Alakazam"- shows you`ve done your homework and know those crooners well.
The singer gets into the mood and the band ( including those rarely heard horns) sound good to me.
Evocative and well crafted music.

Robert
