Another keeper. I love the guitar playing.
It’s one positive thing that has come out of this mess that everyone is in. Some great music is surfacing.
Deep thoughts about being responsible.
Great fguitar finger picking.
Thanks so much for the background notes. You are so right.... now I love it even more. And it sounds like you are an amazing friend as well... but no surprise there!!!! Hugs to you !!
This is a great composition and the production top notch! Excellent work!
Wow..... just wow. Between the shoebox and the broom closet there is a magic Songwriting genius machine. This one choked me up. So so sad and so well done.
I dig it!
You is the most important word in songs. I learned that from a poet named Shannon Elizabeth on Facebook. Thank you for telling me more. Once we've captured a story in a song some of the confusion from the time is illuminated. We don't ave to cling to is, so as not to lose the memories.
What a fine vocal. The intensity! And that very folky guitar snags me deep. So many stabs at the heart in your lyric. Trying to figure out who
It was definitely worth perservering with - love the melancholic vibe
Great songwriting here. Reminds me of Verve Pipe, very good.
Good one mate, I know where you're coming from, glad I'm not alone on the swearing and Take 550 ......
' get it right you useless ******* ' or words to that effect I always use ....
Well you’ve proved to yourself your not “crap” reminds me of something my father would say to me time and time again “ don’t touch that you’ll break it “ and I normally did. Pleased you saved this one from the shoe box an excellent lyric love it pie pod bound along with all your others 😁
You're currently writing amazing songs that make my heart hurt a bit. If that didn't happen, I'd like them even more. That's the trouble with fantastic songwriters.
Huge and mighty, as usual, Mr Russe. (Poor Edith, happy or not, I do wish she was getting something like a hotdog or a gun.)
@Jane So dead puppies and 3-In-One in the knicker drawer is ok then? LOL
You can't do that to kittens! :o
Other than that - magnificence :)
wow!!!! Your voice is just epic!!! I love the pacing of this song. It makes me want to know all the backstory about Edith. An instant fav...
Love the slide! What a great song. No one warns us that vowel sounds matter when writing lyrics, but you nailed it.
So very cool. Not my place, but I wish the outro was also the intro. I like what I like. I liked that very much.
Digging the bass.
Cool track. But does she like it like this? What did you play to her originally? I suspect that creating a second version, closer to what she was expecting would be the safe thing to do.... LOL
I likes it more with each listen
Cool sounds and fabulous lyrics. Over the last few days I've been sharing this very message in various forms in various places... That's probably why I like it so much... And I've come across others saying the same thing... It might not be filtering through to the media (at least not the stuff I'm seeing/hearing)... but then it's not very news-worthy! ... But if there's a bunch of us ordinary people thinking and saying this and similar... then I'm feeling quite encouraged :)
I am SO tempted to follow the advice in this one ... but I'm meant to be working!! Lovely melody and chords.
Nice one. I've often talked about this situation with my wife (usually when we're watching Four Weddings and a Funeral!!) ... I'm convinced boys and girls experience this friend vs possible partner thing slightly differently, she's convinced I'm wrong... oh well, at least I don't have to worry about this kinda thing anymore!! (it happened to me a couple of times in my 20s-40s)
Oh yeah. Rocks. And a very cool song... shoulda been a hit, but... (!)
Hahahahaha... my Mum had a Lime Green Toyota. Very cool song.
Steel drums and choirs, eh? It's 6:50am here... but I feel the need for a glass with an umbrella in it. Cool guitaring.
Only just seen your reply on this one - about HAIM's version of the Fleetwood Mac song... I keep getting recommended it on youtube - I shall press play ..... WOW! The reason I keep getting recommended it is because I'm a big fan of Larkin Poe, have you heard of them? Check out their "Tip O the Hat" series of home vids - two sisters, lead and backing vox, six string and... a KILLER lap-steel player (thinking of getting one)(a lap-steel, not a Megan Lovell, she's already taken!)
What a fabulous album. Glad I've found your stuff. I'll be back for more.
Wow wow wow... fabulous (need a quick pause to see Mrs R off to work... I'll be back)
Oh yes, this too.
Oh my goodness, what song
Listening to this playlist (Signal Flare) while working in another window - might not comment on everything....
After hearing Jarrettt Osborn's take on this one, I had to come back and go again. Yep, I was reduced to "Wow" on this Last time I listent to it too! I like the stripped back version, but I also love all the carefully placed arrangement on this. And the song... shivers down the back... And I can perfectly visualise how you constructed it... having this chorus melody and one hook, just KNOWING it needed a song round it. I love how this version gives me that hook and melody, and the beautifully constructed finished song and arrangement around it ... and then Jarrett's version digs the raw song performance out of it - that possibly you didn't even know existed? (I don't know how you write/record) - and goes "here you go, this is the song I could hear and loved"
Crumbs... I'm a BIG Gary Fox fan... and this is a superb stripped down version that shows how, with the right performance, this song stands on its own without its maker... Wow, nice one.
LOVE this. I first listened while finishing work earlier, back then I mainly noticed your signature lush backing vocals on the chorus (bit loud on this one maybe?). But when I listened again in comfort, able to concentrate... woah, gorgeous song.
Yeah. Like it. Has a kind of tortured claustrophobic vibe to it. I can't hear everything he's saying - but I can hear enough to know I don't wanna be where he is. Love the compelling rhythm - sounds like people digging rhythmically.... first listen I just liked/appreciated it... second listen... yeah, loved it.
