Description
I wrote this on piano originally. It's about my little girl Sophie (see pic above). Usually I sit at the piano and play it for her while she bangs along and laughs at me. Not sure what happened, but when I started recording, it started reminding me of T. Tex so I just went with it. Funny how much Bowie ripped off Marc Bolan (and now I'm ripping them both off). One day I'll play this for her and she'll no doubt get embarrassed and make fun of me.

Lyrics
my little girl
she's so easy to read
when she don't have the words
she still gets what she need

and she'll cry and cry and cry
until she gets what she wants
then she'll laugh and dance and sing
until it's time for bed

she don't want what I can't give
all she wants is her toys and a crib
in return there's a love that shines from her eyes

my little girl
she got a favorite toy
my little girl
she got two teeth in her mouth

and she'll cry and cry and cry
until she gets what she wants
then she'll laugh and dance and sing
until it's time for bed

she don't want what she don't need
she don't need what i can't give
all she wants is her toys and a crib
in return there's a love that shines from her eyes

la da da da da da da da da da da
(repeat ad nauseum)

Shhweet!
Fantastic melody... the guitar strums along nicely, the leads at the chorus elevate the song nicely, cool organs too!

Nice one, man
I love the sentiment ("a love that shines from her eyes") and the imagery is great. The beat is nice, and the guitar is excellent - love that tone. Nice melodic hook, and lovely mix. Best part is the vocal, though. Nice, expressive singing - love it. You have a great voice and it suits this song perfectly. Nice song, and beautiful picture. Peace.

glad you liked. there really is a love that shines from her eyes. it's the most palpable expression of love i've ever felt. i was surprised that the GB amp sounded that good. pretty much the tone that i would have dialed up on a real amp. thanks for listening.

Nice tune too by the way .... soon she will be singing it along with you ...

neat to see the daughter!
great tune. Really does take on some ziggy a t-rex.

I nice laugh on the two teeth line. Killer chorus, nice harmonized geetar lines. thats a good mick ronson style.

Now, you know you will be able to keep her in line when she is old enough to start dating. just say "I'll play that song when you date arrives".

hey vic
good to hear from you. i was going to use a pedal i have that doubles your guitar line with one an octave below (like marc bolan), but i couldn't find my box of pedals; so i just played it twice and it ended up sounding like mick ronson. glad you liked it. BTW we need to do another song one of these days.

Hey Mile -does she look like you? Hopefully not!

I get the T Rex thing, but this is a work of its own. Nice drum sound (what did you use) and I love the panned guitars - really nice sound. Really strong melody with a nice laid back vocal - sung like you meant it.

I'm off to dl some Marc now!

hey steve
thanks for checking this out. i did the drums before anything else (even deciding what song i was going to do). they are a few different loops from GB (from the jazz section). when i listen to the song though, they don't sound jazzy at all. must be the acoustic over the top of them. thanks a bunch for listening to this one (and commenting).

Hi Michael...
The style brings back memories of Tyrannosaurus Rex as opposed to the later, T Rex.

It's a great song and one I immediately felt at home with.

Excellent.

Bolan
I have this theory that the "starman" from the Bowie song is actually Bolan (the mention of boogie is typical.
You're really close to his way of singing (the little lamb-like/cat-like backing vox).

Very nice song, of course.

best i've heard in a long time
Everything fits together so nicely in this song.

The rhythmic underpinning and handling of the drums/percussion work really well here. They complement and enhance your vocals, which rise and fall with the phrases in a captivating way.

Same goes for the guitars. Great playing.

Sometimes it's hard to pin down exactly why a song works well. This one just seems to have all the right elements.

Very good work! I enjoyed listening to this.

thanks so much. the drums were an accident. i just threw a jazz loop (or 3) into GB and then thought about what I could do. ended up putting this song over it (which initially had a completely different feel to it). after that, everything just sort of fell into place. thanks a bunch for listening.

Precious Moments
Yep, I remember when my son was about your daughter's age and he'd come sit on my lap and *help* me play the piano. ;)

A few years later we'd sing some of his favorite tunes together. I recorded all these little sessions and they are treasures to me... and even to him at this point in life. I'm sure Sophie will feel the same about this song.

I must say I also sensed a bit of a Mott The Hoople feel in here --- which would certainly complete the Bolan -Bowie - Mott connection.

Nicely done, Michael. ;)

Well, I spent my day...

"a love that shines from her eyes" is a great line, and I spent some time with the boy version of that look today...

Aside from relating to it as a parent, I really love the song as a song. The production is neat; I love the drum beat, I love the sustaining guitar line, and I think this is a great vocal...

i hope your son's ailment is temporary. i hate when she's sick, you feel so bad for them. they look at you like "please fix me daddy."

the GB amps did okay on this one, usually i don't use them, but i was lazy that day. i think they do better with distorted sounds and bass then with clean guitars. i'm getting ready to start recording with every plug in I have so that I can get a better working knowledge of them. been reading Computer Music magazine and it's inspiring (ought to be for $17). thanks for coming by.

So Easy To Read
Hi Michael,
I finally made it back. This song has an awesome melody, great heartfelt lyrics and a real cool arrangement!!!! To me, it's shines with a little influence of Tom Petty & John Lennon in the mix, but of course we all have our own perspectives on what we see & hear. All I know is that I love this tune!!!!! Very well written and broad ranging in it's appeal... extremely well performed, my friend. Thank you for giving me the chance to hear such a great song!!!!!!

Respectfully,
Wade

thanks Farlowe
i've gotten TP and Lennon a lot. I'll admit I rip off John Lennon quite a bit, but maybe Tom Petty just comes from my half ass voice. Thanks so much for giving this one a listen.

very impressive
Great melody and the guitar work is right on. The drums also do a great job of making the song what it is. Wonderful song!

thanks lennon714
glad you liked. the drums were a complete fluke (they are "jazz" drums). i don't really think like a drummer, but sometimes I get lucky. thanks for listening.

Outstanding
Forget the excellent performance- the love you show for your daughter shines through brightly... and isn't that all that matters?

What a great daddy!
This may be the sweetest song I've ever heard. Hey, I don't have children, but even me, the confirmed non-parental-unit, can appreciate the love in this song.

She'll make fun of you and this song when she's between 13 - 15, but at around 21, 22, she'll accept it as a nice gesture, and around 30, it will have become one of her most treasured posessions, so be sure to save it on CD, digital, any way you can. She'll listen to it when she needs strength, and to remind herself of her parent's unconditional love.

"She's got two teeth in her mouth!" Shut UP! That is so damn CUTE! I wish I'd had a daddy like you! Luckily I had a great Mom, so I'm okay!

Congratulations on making this work of art. And thanks for sharing it here.
