Memories of a Summer Dream

Description
*This fades in-

This one has sort of a Reggae feel to it. I wanted to do something different on this tune. Originally, it was a straight forward ballad-rock thing, but I preferred this dreamy, relaxed island vibe.

Hope you really enjoy this one.

Lyrics
Memories of a Summer Dream

Everybody love one another…
(Say love…)

Everybody love one another
Everyone’s a sister or brother
Everyone lie in the shade
Everybody drinking lemonade

Memories of a summer dream, they’re a long time ago
Wish I had just one more day, and then I’d take it nice and slow

Everybody dance in the sunshine
Everyone sleep under the moonlight
Fireflies caught in a jar
Wish upon a shooting star

Memories of a summer dream, they’re a long time ago
Wish I had just one more day, and then I’d take it nice and slow

Everybody love one another…
(Say love…)

Nice One
Really liked this. Would like to hear some rebalancing on the drums/voc/guitars, but their unusual placement in the audio field also works and gives the whole thing an interesting feel

...the summer goes here. One moment, you can't imagine snow and bare trees. Then the next, white and dull.

man i appreciate a good nature song. GREAT (perfect) effect on the guitar and bass - love the way it just kind of bobs along. also like the fade in - and out - I can almost hear surf. lastly I like the way the vox are kept down low in the mix. adds to the overall dreamy vibe of the tune. really digging your stuff this year. thanks!!

RIDD...
...had to play a lot of pseudo-reggae back in the band days. It was really "in" in Northern California then.
I mean, I was only into the Police, and some Bob Marley and maybe a little Peter Tosh.

Jimmy Cliff's, "Many Rivers to Cross" has to be in my all time top 5.

thanks ridd
