i wrote this song as an exercise. i wrote down all the car and driving terms and molded them into a lyric. it was fun. kess
I liked this one the best of all the songs you’ve posted. I don’t have a critique. I enjoy car song metaphors for love. “Baby, You can Drive my Car,” Beatles; “Crosstown Traffic,” Jimi Hendrix. I wrote one which I’ve never posted: “This time Baby, you’re Goin Passenger Side. . .if ya wanna ride, this time, ya gotta let me drive.” Anyway, really enjoyed this one Kess.
Keep posting, Gordon
Thanks for sharing the process for molding your lyrics. I like your technique and if you don’t mind I’m going to give it a try myself next time. Really like the tune. Had to give it another listen! Great job! Thanks for sharing. Bob
Good song. Great music. The bass really drives it, and the horns work great. Nice job. Strong chorus too.
thanks for listening and your comments. kess
That’s a fun song, alright — great hooks and chorus grab ‘hold and make it memorable. The actual sounds (and the overall ‘feel,’ in a way) hearken back to the ’80s and acts like Huey Lewis and Eddie Money — I could hear either of them on the charts (back then) with this song. Maybe it could be shortened to good effect; perhaps the guitar solo is a bit too much of a good thing.
Thats a hit circa 1985. Really good stuff. Love the change from the verse to the chorus. Hit city. Write some new stuff. You should. Lots of talent here.
thank you all, your comments mean a lot to me. kess
Great retro vibe with ‘soundtrack’ appeal. Everybody already said what I was thinking. Great voice.
Very nice! I can tell you are a “veteran” . The only thing would be to make this sound a little more modern? Maybe a few tweaks would get that. Its hard to change something that’s good…But hey this is an awesome recording! Great job on everything!
