A song of love in the city of Liverpool,  England.  Written for beautiful Linda.  May the years to come be filled with love  and happiness.

Liverpool 1

The train arrives at Liverpool.
I've got my baby by my side.
She wears a look  that says her love is mine.
My heart explodes with pride.

Liverpool 1 - the past has gone.
Liverpool 1 and we move on.

A busker sings a song of love -
the words, I've heard before.
The city comes alive and I reflect,
how we've opened up a door.

Liverpool 1, the past has gone.
Liverpool 1 and we move on.

Music plays,
Rhythm swings,
the band commence,
The singer sings...

It's Liverpool 1 - the past has gone.
Liverpool 1 and we move on.
Liverpool 1 -the past has gone.
Liverpool 1 and we move on.

Written by Paul Vasey

Great tune!

The driving bass line gives the song some definite urgency and that chorus is a serious hook. I love that acoustic guitar lead and the spoken word overlay...very cool and effective.

May the years to come be filled with love  and happiness.

May they indeed.

A rousing song full of positivity. Love your vocal style and all those sung and spoken interjections towards the end. Cool stuff @Cool Hand ! ::headphone::

Hi @Cool Hand

that is a very cool track, great driving bass line, very energetic. Pretty awesome piece of music  ::headphone::

would work very well as a city promotion song for Liverpool!  :o :o 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) ::thumb::

it screams for a video with the best places in Liverpool in the video, some shots of the Beatles, a Liverpool foorball crowd

very nice indeed!!!! arrangmentwise i think it would be great if at a certain point you would have multiple people singing / saying / shouting that "Liverpool 1" line with you.......(and combine that with a short video clip of a cheering Liverpool soccer crowd that shouts: Liverpool 1!?)

anyway loads of energy and positive vibes in this song!!!

Listening again on my good headphones. I think the instrumental should be quite a bit louder in the mix. Would add to the entraining feel. ::headphone::

Great song @Cool Hand


Lovely rock/pop feel to it - short and snappy too.!! Agree that the instrumental could be higher in the mix.


Oh and a belated congrats on the job. I've been meaning to find that thread!!! Delighted for you!!

@Dutchbeat - When I wrote this song, I could only sing the chorus an octave below it's current position.  Every time I sang it that way, i imagined the Liverpool football club supporters chanting "It's Liverpool 1" .  Wouldn't that be lovely, if my song was adopted by the football team of this great city? 

Thank@Mark Luto - thank you so much for listening and reviewing this song.  :)

@Leonard Scaper - \Logic X has some cool bass sounds.  I played this one on my keyboard - got to buy myself a bass one day.  I've recently been experimenting with spoken word sections in songs.  I think it adds another colour to the palette of instruments that we can draw n to enhance a song.  Thank you.  :)

@ Zedd - thank you for your comments and also for your well wishes regarding my new job.  I've had a been a busy few weeks, chasing up references, applying for DBS checks and attending HR department for various reasons.   :)

@coolhand.....the first step to perhaps get that happening, this:

I know you already will have thought about this, but think BIG  :)  ::thumb::...

try to attach the best video clips of the highlights of the Liverpool football team
and there will be plenty of that, but don't think about beautiful goals only, but use other footage of the football team of Liverpool
that shows they are one, they stand together like in: Liverpool 1

and perhaps ask a little choir of fellow forum people out here, to sing / chant that "Liverpool 1" bit, and copy these tracks and make them into some extra crowd accent

as far as the video goes.....
you know  ;D ;D ;D ;D i like to make videos....(just saying)
and there seem to be software fxs that make a crowd like sound, if you runthree takes of "Liverpool 1" through it, that software claims to be able to make an entire crowd of it  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

i guess, what i am trying to say is: go for it!  ::headphone:: ::headphone:: ::headphone:: ::headphone::

Really nice song. The chorus is really catchy and effective. It's already stuck in my head after just one listening. :)
