Moves and Grooves - Love Song Comp
on: November 03, 2016, 18:52:58
So when I first heard this song in my head, I imagined this as some kind of Two-Tone Genre.
But when Phil and I began writing this, we tried a soul song and then tried to make it "modern". It ended up sounding like a child of the 80s.
This is the first song that Phil I have written for a while,  so i haven't posted much to the site The competition email prompted me to post this.
My friend say "Pet Shop Boys" so I'm resigned to wearing a traffic cone on my head.
Thanks Phil for all the time you've spent mixing and adding to the song in so many ways...get well soon mate.
Thanks in advance for any reviews.

Lyrics:
You got the moves where the moves should be
You got the grooves where the grooves should be
You got love and your love so free
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me

You got a heart and and your heart beats
You got a  mind and your mind breathes
I want to say categorically
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me


Getting ready to move
Getting ready to groove with love
My love is ready for you
My Love is ready for groovy love
I only want to improve
I only want to improve and move
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me




I got a dance that needs you to beat
The dance of hope that's inside of me
I need you to help me move my feet
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me



Getting ready to move
Getting ready to groove with love
My love is ready for you
My Love is ready for groovy love
I only want to improve
I only want to improve and move
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me


Getting ready to move
Getting ready to groove with love
My love is ready for you
My Love is ready for groovy love
I only want to improve
I only want to improve and love
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me
You should be
You could be
You would  be me with me

Ad lib and fade

Groovy Disco -(not sure I would like to live through that era again)  I'm not sure what the twist is though.

Definitely a Pet Shop Boys feel to it @Movin Flavour

and it's very catchy.

It's not my type of song so I'm not the best judge but - I think I'd prefer your original idea of a Two Tone type thing or a soul thing.

Something along the lines of your "Keep on Pushing" song - that's a great song and has a great Jam take on soul.

cheers

 ;D ;D ;D ;D @Movin Flavour
good to see you out here again!

great track, good fun! I don't get a Pet Shop boys vibe, I more get something like: Trans X (of the song: living on video)
(on the basis of the used synth sounds, a bit more Pre Pet shop Boys area)

a great entry for our love song comp  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Fun listen here.  I'm also not sure I get the Pet Shop Boys vibe either.  Not that I'm an expert on PSB.  Beyond West End Girls, that is.

Hey @Movin Flavour shame on me I missed this entry!
I didn't get PSB either, more like the groovy disco @vincent_stewart mentions... Nice voice, is that you? And may I ask who Phil is? Just curious..  ;)
Since we need a twist to qualify: can you tell us what the twist is? I missed it somehow, but english is not my native language.
In @Mark Luto 's case 'she' was an espresso machine. In my case 'she' was a goldfish.. Not that 'she' needs to be the 'twist' but just to give you an example.
If there's no twist you still have 1 day extra (closing 16th november at 12:00 (at lunch) forum time to add a twist. It counts even if it's just a little one! Let us know!

I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

Hi Mar T

The twist is in the lyrics....whether the person of my affection,should be could be or would be with me? A hanging unanswered question. A very tenuous link and am happy to be withdrawn from the comp.
I've not done this genre before..... It's a great comp thx for organising.

This is smoooooth.... I really liked it.. Soothing disco? Have you created a new genre? Is that the twist? Or is it an Ode to your Dancing Teacher?   A twist for sure...  ;D ;D


Regardless, I really enjoyed it.. and will listen again!!


Great stuff @Movin Flavour !
