Love Somebody
on: April 29, 2020, 12:51:57
Hey all!

Would love to get some feedback on this track. It's one I wrote a year or two ago but recently came back to. I appreciate any thoughts/feedback!

Thanks!
Micky

Lyrics:

Some days I forget
But most days I remember
The nights we threw away
When we were young and wild
And after all this time I
Can't find anyone like you
I can't find anyone like you

If I could get ahold
of a time machine
I'd go back to the days
when I wasn't afraid to say
I love somebody
Love somebody

If I could slow down time
I would go back to that good good night
A little dizzy but it felt so nice
This isn't me but it felt so right

And if I could have that moment
I would bottle it up
And I'd take it everywhere that I go
Because it's rare to find someone
who will stare at the ceiling
and listen to the wind blow

But now I am empty handed
You are somewhere
And I cannot give anything
No I cannot give anything

If I could get ahold
of a time machine
I'd go back to the days
when I wasn't afraid to say
I love somebody
Love somebody

If I could slow down time
I would go back to that good good night
A little dizzy but I loved somebody
This isn't me but I loved somebody

Some days I forget
But most days I remember
The nights we threw away
When we were young and wild
And after all this time...

And if I could have that moment
I would bottle it up
And I'd take it everywhere that I go
Til I find somebody who will stare at the ceiling
And listen to the wind blow

I'm not giving up
I'm gonna love somebody
Love somebody

I'm not giving up

If I could get ahold
of a time machine
I'd go back to the days
when I wasn't afraid to say
I love somebody
Love somebody

If I could slow down time
I would go back to that good good night
A little dizzy but I loved somebody
This isn't me but I loved somebody

If I were to visit a festival, @Mutrins , I would gladly lower my bum in the wet grass to sit this one out. The others would dance of course . But I would stick to what I do best. And dancing is not among the things I do best. Ever see a guitarist dance? I even have a lady friend whose guitarist. And even she doesn’t dance.

There you are. But I came close to doing it.
Kind regards, Gus

Yeah....this one would definitely be a crowd pleaser at that festival. I really like how you wait to bring in the percussion like that...very effective.

I really like what you do Micky @Mutrins

Hi Micky @Mutrins,
I honestly love your lyrics. Time in a bottle, like my hero Jim Groce sang. Your production is very eloborate and has hit potential. I myself would have prefered a somewhat more intimate approach, but hey my musical roots are in the folk scene. Nice song though.

@LePlongeur haha I think you should dance! Life's short, might as well??  :dance:

@Leonard Scaper Thank you!! Really appreciate it

@Charlie Thanks so much!! I do like the idea of a more intimate approach to the song. So I'm with you on that. I always love a good stripped down version of anything.

This is a perfect pop song @Mutrins  - great lyrics too! VERY polished! I'm not sure where you are from a promotional pov but I think you've got a really marketable song here! Good luck with it!

You can tell this is a great track!

At the moment though it sounds like a mock-up track, which is a track that has been sketched out to sell the overall vibe and arrangement before producing it professionally. From the work you have done, I think it's clear that the track will sound stellar if you did go on to produce it professionally or work with a producer.

Great work!

Yea for the most part these are my productions and eventually (with a budget!) I can get them produced professionally.

Thanks again for the feedback!

Love it! It builds really nice...love the lyric:

"If I could get ahold
of a time machine
I'd go back to the days
when I wasn't afraid to say
I love somebody
Love somebody"

Great rhythm to your lyrics and the melody is very memorable. Thoroughly enjoyed this!  :)
