SLEEPIN' SINGLE

girl, it kills me you're not here
you say that you've been lonely too
it's your sweet kiss i miss
i've looked at this
from every angle
i can be there by midnight
if i leave now and the coast is clear
some cabernet
whattaya say
let's intermingle
   
   we've spent too much of our forever
   sleeping single
   not one more night
   sleeping single

it's been like a dream
from the first moment i saw you
in a fevered heat
my heart skipped a beat
turning cartwheels

i wanna feel those feelings
brand new every day
kissing your sweet lips
while my heart flips
turning cartwheels
   
   we've spent too much of our forever
   sleeping single
   not one more night
   sleeping single

don't wanna spend one more moment
without you by my side
or one more night
sleepin' single
not one more night
sleepin' single


All inside 3 minutes.
Hope ya get something outta this...
Type Something.

Hi Floyd,

Like Dan, you had my full attention with the intro. A simple but very effective lyric. the backing tracks are full and fill in all the cracks and creases in the soundscape. It sounds to me you've left the background tracks a little more forward in the mix than you typically do. I like it!

As always, a superb vocal. What I particularly like about your vocal delivery on this one is how you clipped the last word of each verse, almost a vocal staccato.

And the surprise ending was a real treat - leaving the last vocal line without the resolution was quite effective

Quite a treat. Might I say the song was "perky"?

Take care,

Alan

Floyd,

This song should be streaming on every platform 24 hours a day...

It's contemporary, pop-infused and superbly sung and mixed. Perfection!

A new favorite!

Very good stuff Floyd. I really like this one. Your writing is always good, and it is here as well. The words fit the melody like a hand in a glove on this one. If I had to pick one stand out on this song, I think it's your vocals. Great delivery. I know it's a pop song, but there's still that country in your voice and I think it would fit either genre. I thought the distorted backing guitar was a little loud in a few places, particularly in the chorus, but that just me being hyper critical. Great listen.

Hi, floyd jane.

So much to like here. Upbeat, fun inner rhymes. Instruments interweaving in the poppy arrangement. Nice open sound, solid harmonies.

And, of course, your vocal:

   While my heart flips

Nice ending too!

The 70's called, they saw your painting and they want their color palette back! Just kidding, I couldn't resist! wink

As you said - all within three minutes! Wow!

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

Floyd, making music fun...indeed! Love everything about this. Killer vocals are worth repeating. Especially like the subtle crack on the chorus near the end. Great job!

Very nice. Who doesn't like some pop country every now and then?

A pleasant listen.

S-O-M-E-T-H-I-N-G...

Just kidding.

But did I complete the assignment correctly??

Seriously, this is well-layered with a pleasant, nostalgic feel. These types of songs take us back to an era of a greater innocence I think, in mood, delivery, and production.

Thanks for carrying the torch!

🙂

I love those internal rhymes, something I also explored in my last song, and am starting to understand how cool they can be.
Nice story, great vocals and a REALLY good mix.
And the ending is a really cool idea.
The choruses sound to me more like a pre-chorus and I was waiting for a chorus with a bit more oomph or something.
But since I seem to be the only one who feels that way, it's probably just me and nothing to worry about.

Enjoyed the listen a lot anyway smile

ALL your songs are fun, floyd. No matter how sad some may get, I am always happy hearing them. In this one I love the flowing melody filled with longing lyrics, and how the title is the strong hook. I can hear couples around the world singing this to each other. Very relatable. A friend of mine sells t-shirts that say "Forever is not as long as you think." I had him add ",,,and Never is just around the corner" for the back.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Your voice is what takes this song over the top. It has your trademark inflections (the voice inflection on "flips" is wow, to give just one example) ... the song is really well written, etc., but the voice really showcases it at its full value. Love the uptempo, upbeat feel.

Hats off to you.

The opening is killer with the guitars shifting across the speakers. The acoustic sounds great especially with your expert editing on the fills and solo. Super vocals and a mix that is balanced and showcases all the different guitars. Of course it's well written and let us not forget the inspired cut off ending. I thoroughly enjoyed my multiple listens, Tom

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
