Hi, i know this needs more work, but i am also a bit finished with it for now (deaf from it  ;D), so i just put it up as finished for the inspirational input songwriting challenge...

so i hope it can be an entry in the inspirational input blue sheet thread. I don't expect to win one of those customized songwriters in the kitchen aprons with this  ;D ;D ;D ;D

But let me explain  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Ian's inspirational input happened to coincide with a holiday to Spain where i was somewhat shocked by the extremeness of the partying in Lloret de Mar (where we went because our children are 18 and 17, and this was a place they were prepared to go to)

so i tried to combine the tekst i got from IanW with that experience and also a bit how we as parents want to have our children to go have a great party but also are concerned and hope they can take the responsibility for themselves etc. etc.   :-\ :P :P ;D ;D ;D...never mind  ::) ::) :P...it is a bit in an 80s 90s disco style (because that was my time), so the message is a bit: have fun but also: take care and watch out, but i did the same etc...sort of thingy, but i realise i strayed of from the inspirational input from Ian that way, but i still hope that this can qualify for our inspirational input songwriting challenge.....oh, and since i made the rules for that...i think it does  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D So here it is:

https://soundcloud.com/dutchbeat-1/can-i-hand-you-the-key-1

and this was the input i got from IanW:

"Breadfruit

Boys dream of native girls who bring breadfruit,
    Whatever they are,
As bribes to teach them how to execute
Sixteen sexual positions on the sand;
This makes them join (the boys) the tennis club,
Jive at the Mecca, use deodorants, and
On Saturdays squire ex-schoolgirls to the pub
    By private car.

Such uncorrected visions end in church
    Or registrar:
A mortgaged semi- with a silver birch;
Nippers; the widowed mum; having to scheme
With money; illness; age. So absolute
Maturity falls, when old men sit and dream
Of naked native girls who bring breadfruit
    Whatever they are."

me, myself, and Pie


Hey Mr and Mrs DB!

Fab.. Is that both of you singing??? Love the sentiment of the lyrics - I'm a relatively long way away from it and I shall remain in blissful denial of its arrival for some years yet (8 and 10 year-old girls here  :) :)) But I can identify with the conflicting emotions - the letting go and the holding tight..

Loved it!

Wow DB and Mrs Dutchbeat, great how you both drew the energy to produce this one from a real life situation! I can see a clear relation with the input from Ian. I really think this one qualifies for the competition!
Loved the style, arrangement, singing and production as a whole. Great work and big thumbs up! MM
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

This is really good Mr & Mrs DB  :) I love the  disco club feel of this song, and the lyrics are awesome :)
 
I totally hear what you're saying about wanting to let the kids go out and have some fun, but at the same time praying they'll be safe and make good choices ;D
but it's gotta happen sooner or later  ::)

It definitely qualifies for the inspirational challenge  :) fantastic job you 2 :) and the kids of course...this song wouldn't have come about, if not for the kids  ;D ;D

This was awesome DB.  Loved the beat, the vocals, everything really.

Last time I was up at 4:00 am was last Saturday, to use the bathroom. At my age I can no longer make it safely through the night :(

Kudos for this, duck !  incoming karma being thrown your way.

Wow DB, you really are a whiz with a synth!  :o

100% 80s disco feeling!! Well done pulling that off, it all sounds so authentic... definitely some ABBA in there!
Cool arrangement, sounds like a load of work - I tried counting the number of different synth tracks I heard, but had to stop at some point  :D

That wobbly bass synth is awesome  8)

Mrs DB's vocals fit into the arrangement like a glove - and if I'm not mistaken you had a go at the mic yourself too, right? Wouldn't mind hearing more of those vocals  :)

Sounds like you had quite some fun in Lloret de Mar  ;D ;D
