Daylight Comes

Description
A friend challenged me to write a song for the Beatles and I came up with a Badfinger song.

It's getting better all the time.

You'll either have a good time or it will annoy the hell out of you.

Lyrics
Daylight Comes

Can't wait any longer
I'm like the sunrise ready to shine

Just a little bit somber
I'm on the red line, running so high

Daylight come, Daylight comes, everyday

Wanna' thank the morning
It takes a lifetime to realize

Hope I'm not too boring
Better praise tomorrow's sunrise

Daylight comes, Daylight comes, everyday

I wanna' hear the warning
Travel the corners of time and space

Don't you hear what I'm saying?
It might be over, don't lose the race

Daylight comes, daylight comes, everyday

Light is twisting and bending
Catch the only one and paint the fence

Dreaming love without ending
Rising up and the descending

Daylight comes, Daylight comes, everyday

I was thinking......
of getting you involved in this one because I realized you sound a lot like the singer from Badfinger. And your guitar would have been great.

Maybe we could start a Macjams band "Goodtoe", how's that for a name?

Snow huh?

Fun and Beatle-y
I just wanted to use the word "Beatle-y." I don't know who Badfinger is, but, well. . . I think I can imagine this as a Beatle's song.

It was fun and cheerful, but there were lines where the rhythms felt forced or rushed. For example "Better praise tomorrow's sunrise" sounded like you were in a hurry to get through it.

Fun music, and I think the keyboard rhythms were particularly Beatle-y.
lavalamp said 3488 days ago (April 6th, 2008)

Never forced. But, thanks for pointing that out.

Glad you liked it?

Hope to see you around.

Badfinger
Ever hear the song "Come and Get It?" McCartney wrote it and Badfinger did the song. It was their first hit. Good song.

"If you want it, here it is, come and get it
woo, woo, woo, woo
Make your mind up fast."

W/ great production, I would say the most pro sounding thing you have done to date love that short sweet chorus, so familiar which is a good thing for sure! Very nice Dave!

You think it's one of my best productions. I knock this one out in about 3 hours........go figure?

great work!
catchy and the good kind of familiar. the thing I always like about your vocals is the honesty of them. nothing ever sounds forced or sounds like you sang 100 takes to get it right. well done pal!

Thanks man
I'm really weak at vocals, so any support is appreciated. Sometime, I forget that I came back into this as a songwriter and not a singer. But, it seems if you don't sing it right, you don't get the respect.

So, I try.

Good time here too!
Outside it is in fact raining and everything is overcast and gloomy. This cheered me up considerably. Nice lyrics, great arrangement, and very good melody. Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

P.S. Impossible to listen without bopping my head like a nut. Good thing.

Totally
reminds me of the great pop tunes of my youth in the mid 70's. A bit Partridge family a bit Monkees but I mean that in the best sense since those songwriters were hit makers.

Took me back
Maybe it's just me, but this has a more Beach Boys feel to me - a little tweaking on the mix and a bit more reverb in the right places and it could be Brian and the boys. Oh and a few extra harmonies. Your voice sounds a lot like Mike Love.

Fun song Dave.

Goodtoe - I like that!!

I think that would be a brilliant idea to add harmonies. It really a Beachboys song, now to think of it.

Pull My Badfinger
Dave,

I'm not sure if anyone here will agree with me, but I think that either you've been heavily influenced by the Beatles, or you are one of the Beatles or possibly one of them lived next door to you in the 60's when you used to sing your songs with the windows opened.

I want you to stop what you're doing and send me a video of you singing right now.

Please don't let me down, buddy boy. I'll send you an autographed photo of Vic Holman. Speaking of Vic, have you and he reunited to do a song yet? Come on guys! What are you waiting for?

Your best friend at MacJams and in the entire state of Florida,

Dresden calling
A friend of mine challenged me to write a Beatles song. He's one of they best guitar players I've seen live. He said he couldn't do it. I drunkly replied that I could.
Just did my best Dana Carvey from SNL, remember that bit where he plays a songwriting and he writes Chopping Broccoli. Too obscure?

I know you're just goofing, but I try not to be too much of a Beatle rip-off, but it's just so damned fun.

I wish I could have been a writer for the Monkees.

My old best friend lives in Fla., but you're still number one.

Can you get Vic to sign my guitar?

this song had me smiling all the way through, i couldn't help but bob my head, its a contagious beat you've got there, it just works perfectly with the choppy piano chords. Nice vocals too, the stereo/doubled effect really helps thicken the texture, and also creates a nice, balanced soundscape. Really enjoyed this, fav'd dwnld!

Cheers for this dave

you could do the
