I Am An American
on: November 27, 2019, 15:19:09
Hi guys, This is a collaboration I did with two of my friends from over on the taxi forum, it was submitted to the taxi Road Rally  (one of the three submissions it was submitted to has rejected it. the other two are still to hear from)

Are there any suggestions/advice if it is not accepted there, what should we do? Help need.

This production sounds pretty good @irwin .

I think the subject matter may limit the song to a certain audience, but that audience is definitely out there somewhere. Best of luck with it.

Was it Beaudelaire (in any case a French sounding guy) whose motto it was that we should strive for the following:
Try to live as normally as you possibly can, so that you can excel (or exaggerate) in your art.
My words, plus I really can not be a 100% sure that I use the exact French words. And that, dear Kitcheners, is key in France.

So this, and (I really think) we must be considerate about feelings and cycli, biological or otherwise...
We canít always say what we like. Thatís the reason the Gods gave us songs.
And so what if our attitude or language limits the public?
At the risk of being rude: are you married to the other committees? If not, itís their loss if they turn you down. Have as much fun as you possibly can.

Thatís a fantastic song too, by the way. The coupons, Turn her down.
So in short: donít Take prisoners!!!
Limit your public?
Iíve seen Pink Floyd perform for 200 people, prince for 400. To name a few.....
Never underestimate the power of having fun.

Forgotten: I am not an American. High time I write a song about that.
Born in the Amsterdam
I was
Born in the Amsterdam
Or does that sound familiar to you? Just joking!
Kind regards, Gus

I say go with it @LePlongeur      ::e-guitar3::  ::Note::Born in Amsterdam ::Note::   ::Dutch::     :dance:

Hey @irwin   this is kind of an old school patriotic country song kind of thing. I say you can market it to right-wing talk radio shows. It could totally work.

Yes, I am sorry. Born in the Netherlands, to parafraze The Boss.
The Amsterdam was intended as a joke, but a joke is never funny if you have to give an explanation.
But thanks for your help @Bill from November Sound

Kind regards, Gus

Hi Leonard, LePlongeur, Bill and Mo , I thank you very much for your advice and comments you've given to me. Myself and co-writers we are thinking just what next to do. I think their must be a way out to get this song right so it can be accepted.
