Someone Said Whiskey on Soundcloud
Someone Said Whiskey on YouTube


A song about growing up while keeping laughter in your life.

Style is _BAKHOME.STY (Back Home Basic Ctry Swing Waltz)

RealTracks in style: ~1700:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm CountryWaltz Sw 085
RealTracks in style: ~827:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Country Waltz Sw 110
RealTracks in song: 4154:Guitar, Baritone Electric, Rhythm NashvilleWaltzMelodicTremolo Sw 120
RealTracks in song: 2216:Guitar, Resonator, Soloist CountryWaltzRob Sw 085 (Bluesy)
RealDrums in style:NashClassicWaltzSw^1-a:SideStick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

I played bass and that godawful honky-tonk piano properly detuned.

Someone Said Whiskey

When I was younger I laughed all the time.
I didn't care for nuthin', and I was just fine.
But they made me grow up, and I had to pay.
All of the fun stuff was taken away. But then

Someone said whiskey and I heard the call.
They passed me a bottle and I drank it all.
We drank to our troubles till quarter to three.
Someone said whiskey and whiskey called me.

Next day I woke up and swam through my room.
I went to the closet to fetch me a broom.
I cleaned up the worst slipp'ry mess that we made.
I couldn't see much, so I rasied the shade. "Close that!"

Someone said whiskey. We gathered around.
They passed me the bottle, and I drank it down.
We drank to our troubles and set them all free.
Someone said whiskey and whiskey saved me.

[Well, they say with age comes wisdom. I don't know nuthin' about that.
But I DO know that all my drinkin' buddies started dying off.
So I got to thinking, "Maybe I gotta quit this drinkin'."
You know, get on with some easy llivin'.
]

Now that I'm older I laugh all the time.
I care less for whiskey cuz ice tea's just fine.

Someone said whiskey. I said what's the point.
They drank from the bottle while I smoked a joint.
We laughed without troubles. The day was complete.
Someone said whiskey but I was asleep –dreaming of my horseshoe, Lucky.

WONDERFUL!!! Hahahahahaha. Made me really, really smile and chuckle out loud, throughout. I love your sense of humor, together with such a professional presentation. The spoken section is top notch, every word is perfectly intoned. The sung sections are wonderful; you have a light kind of voice, perfect for this kind of song, perfect to make one smile whilst also seeing the serious side of things. The snoring, at the end, took me totally by surprise and had me in hoots of laughter. BRAVO. You make people so happy with your music, no matter whether serious or on the lighter side.

The video is simply brilliant. That poor overturned otter or seal, or whatever you call that one ... aww smile And cleaning up the mess with surgical gloves - fab smile Is that you, on the video, in the spoken section? Wonderful - especially the unfocused moments, haha ... brilliant smile

WELL DONE. Thank you ever so much for sharing smile

I never thought I'd see/hear it, but the bluesman has become a Country outlaw! Don' t worry you pulled it off just fine!Your piano playing was just fine to my ears and the de-tuned sound fit quite alright!
The snoring at the end was unexpected but had me smiling!
You are a talented fellow!
Take care, TB

Marty, if you hadn't mentioned that you play the piano, I would have guessed this was a RealTrack.
Pretty good work, Pianoman.

Wonderful lyrics. The speaking part is excellent.
Love it!

Hey Marty,

You nailed it! A fun song and equal;ly fun video. Loved the lyric - way too cool! And the 3/4 time signature was an excellent choice.

terrific vocal, great band, fun listen - what more could a listener want? the only thing I can think of is an encore.

I always love your songs. I've not heard a single bad one - the worst was pretty darned good! And your worst is better than many folks' best.

Grerat song, great listen. Thanks!

Take care,

Alan

Marty, I can't really comment on the tone of things due to hardware probs.
The song is a cracker...many of us have reached for a little chemical help to regain our disinhibited youth.
On my current set up the vocal needs a little top end to sit a little higher in the mix but it's probably fine on decent gear.
Good narrative, funny ending to a really good song.
The honky tonk, bass & vocals are the stand outs.


Cheers

Thanks so much, James. What a wonderful review. Yeah, that seal seemed perfect for the waking up part. Yeah, that's me in the vid. Our graddaughter Charely is also in there saying, "Close that." After she recorded her part we ad libbed a cave story with super reverb on the mic.

Thanks, Vic. That waltz time is intended to give it a wobbly leg feel.

Thanks, Brain. Got my first "big break" playing Burt Bacharach's piano in Sceptor records. The only thing that break brought was breaking the record for flops.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks, Alan. That 3/4 time brought in the right amount of wobble to his step. I should send you some of my worst clunkers that I won't even listen to.

Well whiskey's not my thing but good music sure is...you never disappoint my friend...your tracks are always flawless (cause I know the time and effort you put into them)...this is no exception...I loved the style you used here...the narration was cool (great radio voice)...your writing is as clever as usual and the video is classic...I'll drink (iced tea) to that!

Hey, don't be asking me for keyboard parts when you can play like that! wink

Me, too, Laurent. For me it was vodka in high school. Never did the whiskey thing. Cabernet snob now.

Thanks, Mario. My first gig was lead guitar, then bass, then my big break came as a piano player. No one ever wanted me to sing.

Thanks, Ray, Man, I wish I coulda fit "disinhibited youth" in the lyrics somewhere. Your ears are the best regardless of the setup. Thank you.
