Lyrics
Best Thing

Verse 1
Sometimes it’s tough know one said it would be easy.
Growing up just seems to come way way to fast.
During the hardest times you try to think about your past.
When things were so good you thought they would last and last.

Chorus:
Then things all seem to change, nothing is working out.
Life will get you down, it seems there’ll be no end.
Then one day you’ll turn around, things won’t be so bad.
When you decide to fix the best thing, the best thing you ever had.

Verse 2
Things didn’t work out between us. I know that wasn’t the plan.
Somehow we grew apart. You went out. You found another man,
And you know that hurt me so bad. Now everyday I think of you.
And I hope you’re not sad. I’m drowning in my tears for loosing the best thing I ever had. What happen to us girl?

Chorus:
Things all seem to change, nothing is working out.
Life will get us down, it seems there’ll be no end.
Then one day we’ll turn around, things won’t be so bad.
When we decide to fix the best thing, the best thing we ever had.

Lets fix the best thing, the best thing we ever had.
Oh girl I’m thinking about you now.

Lets Fix It

Well Michael, you are quite the romantic! This is a great song! Nice job with the intro - I love the electric piano, as well as the tasty little sax parts. Vocals are very good, as well as the harmonies, and the entire mix is excellent (of course!). Oh I just heard the ending - definitely like that little whisper as it fades out! Now I can hear lots of ways to further develop this but I'll talk to you later about those things if you like - I am impressed with your songwriting abilities - great job and thank you for sharing this, my friend!

why is this not on the radio, and why are you not famous? i ask you, why?? if there is a definition of professional sound, this would be the standard. i love that little whispered "let's fix it" at the end - nice sign off. congrats on this!

Very cool slow jam. Sentimental side of the producer! You're full of surprises bro! Love the build up to the hook in the chorus. Sax sounds really good throughout. Really strong effort on this one Mike. The production is off the charts good!

So beautiful...
...and kinda sad. But this stuff happens, doesn't it?

Your arrangement really does the theme justice and, in my opinion, this may be your best vocal delivery ever.

Two thumbs up old friend!

Be well!

Michael is that you
singing.... I'm not sure if I've heard you sing yet... but if this is you... surprising to say the least.... excellent... when I think of your chops, I always think huge guitars... huge wall of sound... this shows off your radio ready ability to place big wide keyboards, with all the frosting... perfect producer touches in all the right places.... you always seem to put the right amount of tweek in your productions

Fantastic production from first note!
Love your vocal - backing instruments all works really well in the genre. I'm probably the last person who should comment on this, but it sounds like its pretty seriously compressed. For me this doesn't necessarily change the way I feel about the song, but others may find it a little wearing on the ears.

This is seriously good "adult contemporary" music.
Great post.

Hello Niel___

Thank you Neil. I agree Neil. I may have pushed it in the mastering stage. I'm kind of in the well it sounds pretty good as is but stage (I mastered it just before I posted it so I never listened with fresh ears - shame) I do feel it is a bit on the "loud" side of things. It isn't distorted except for the one vocal line which was recorded that way so I can fix that. Yes - I agree - It may be a bit too loud - Hey, I'm learning this mastering thing and I need to hear feedback and I will improve and soon I will be the master Neil - trust me. :)

Thank much for your comments,

Fantastic production from first note!

I'm listening again and again and it sounds so good - Not over compressed in my ears - Maybe the vocal track? It is a bit loud but not over compressed - I think.

you know .....
... I was almost hearing Kenny Rogers here ... (this is a compliment ... just in case you are not a Kenny Rogers Fan ) .... but .... there was something in the melody ..... but Kenny aside .... your vocals are top notch and you projected just the right amount of emotion here (ack do I sound like Paula Abdul right about now) ???? If I am being honest .... I agree with what Neil said .... in my headphones the mix was a little "hot" .... but that might just be my headphones

Good song
The delivery of the lyrics is A+. You have a great voice and you recorded it well.

I have some issues with some of the more "solo" instruments, for instance in that intro. The sax plays a couple of notes, the piano plays a couple of notes, but it's not really memorable, nor is it clear if either is the lead instrument. I think some more focus on the solos here and there would improve the track.

Vic - I agree totally - (can u fix it?) Just kidding.. Look - this song happened and pretty much is what it is and I for one believe it's "not bad". so I posted it. I can't change anything about it because I recorded it in a studio that used DA38 tapes and I no longer have access to or have the master tapes to that session. so... this is what I have and that's it.....
