ahhh, @BayBlues

great track.....great blues...deep vocals
I love it  ::thumb::

a great songwriting competition this is
(but watch out...it is the: write a love song with a twist - in a genre you have never written in - competition)
you MASTER the blues, you own and live it

but....watch that genre twist... ;D ;D ;D ;D
well, I have the same problem, I have the song nailed, but now I need to make a genre twist....I probably won't manage that  :P :P :P :P


fantastic track  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: @BayBlues





me, myself, and Pie

Damn man.  You got yourself a mercenary mama, and you love her so.  But you may just be wakin up with a hole in your head. 

I feel those blues.

This song has that hot bluesy feel.  There's a lot of space to fill around the 4 minute mark though.  Song screams out for some harmonica or organ...something to enhance the blues. 

Love the lyrics!!

Thank You all For Your Input and I Do Take Things To Heart.
I haven't finished with this piece,  I have been having so much
fun with this Number,  My Favorite Collaborator @vincent_stewart
and I Work So Well Together, He is In The Middle Of A Move,
But with The Net it helps More than one can Say.

We Use Google Docs For Our Written Collaboration Platform
It's Free Up To a Certain Point, If we Exchange Sound Files
We Can Use Drop Box, And this is also free up to a certain
amount. I mention these because there are some that are '
uncertain as to how this is done.

I Listened and Will Present a new Incarnation of "Mercenary MaMa" 

Soon.

Thank You............~~~~~~~*BB

Hahaha great entry @BayBlues ! I loved the
'Sayin’ Cama Cama Cama
I wanna give you some Trauma' line..
Ow yes, this is a love song with a twist... You have a very distinct voice my friend! The instumental sounded a bit monotonous to me, but this song is about the story and your
unique vocal way of telling that story imo. So over-all I really enjoyed listening!
Btw. What's that CaMeL CaSe style you're writing everY Post in? Does that mean something? Just CuRiOuS.. ;-) (Or is it because maybe your 'shift' key is stuck?  ;D ;D)

Cheers man!!

Makes For Easier Reading, Not So Boring as Straight Text.
What Can I Say Xcept, My M.M. Gave Me Some TRAUMA!!!
My Favorite Hook Too!

This Is Pretty Rough, Next Edition Will Address Some Of The Issues
That Have Been Mentioned.

As Far as The Genre Twist,  Music in my Mind is So Homogenized Like
Much Of The Music That Is Popular Today, That Everything I Write
Has The Blues In It.
 It Is In MY DNA. US MICKS Have Been Using The I-IV-V Way Before
The Blues Genre Claimed It>Its Not That We Invented It, We Discovered
It,  God Made The Tension Resolution And All The Things Music Wants To
Do, Before Man&Woman Got Ahold Of It........~~~~~~*BB

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D @BayBlues.....great response....I think your song qualifies for the "love song with a twist - comp".....you can not help that everything you (and @vincent_stewart ) make is soaked in deep blues

it just sounds good and real  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Hey @BayBlues I agree with @Dutchbeat this song qualifies, for me the twist is the lyrics (this is certainly not a standard love song)... We'll forgive you for sticking to your own genre, I'm sure the voters will sympathize with you, because of your explaination. We can't make a fish climb trees do we?  ;) ;)
Most important of the comps is that you're challenged and have some fun creating a new song  ;)

@BayBlues
Song is pretty cool but I think it could use a little more instrumentation to draw in an average listener. The lyrics are nice and it kinda reminds me of "Pistol Packin Mama" by Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters. I just get those vibes from it which is not a bad thing at all. Like what you are doing man! Peace :)
No Price, Just Happiness.
