Don't tell me what I can't w/KTB and Ingve

Description
Once again I managed to get KTB to sit in on keyboards one of my songs. Thanks for adding tasty spice to the plate John:) What more is that my friend Ingve agreed to sing this one. Thanks mate! I think he did a super job!

If we all call his name out loud we might convince him to join our macjams family;)

I pulled the first version I uploaded after seeing some comments on a little unbalance in the mix... Hope this is taken care of now... Thanks Feter for leaving an encouraging comment on that version and to Jim Bouchard and ComposerClark for pointing out the unbalanced mix:)

I see that I've managed to put up a mp3 containing complete silence for the last 3 minutes of a total of 6:27 this time. Sorry.. I'm tired... it's 00:35 and I should be in bed...

Lyrics
Don’t tell me what I can’t
Thor Oliversen©2009

Not much can keep me from doing
What I want
To fear I do not cling
So don’t tell me I can’t

If looking at myself from a distance
I blend in
If focus is set more closely
Well, it’s hardly a sin

So easy
As long as I keep telling me it is
Easy

Looking in the mirror - smiling
It shows that you get it right back
What if it is all reflecting
Your thoughts shows you your track

So what do I choose from now on
Believing that it’s up to me
Yesterday is already long gone
Today I choose who to be

So easy
As long as I keep telling me it is
Easy

Love the lyrics
of this song. So many people put simple lyrics in their songs. Well done. You have an early elton john sound. Sounds good. Like the early Elton far over now. Guitar tastefully used with a very warm tone. Nice Job.

Lyrics
Thanks for mentioning the lyrics:) I've heard people comparing Ingve to Elvis or Bryan Ferry... Never thought of Elton, but now that you mention it... maybe there is a little resemblance... Anyway, I think he does a great job in this one.

Thor
and friends, a very smooth song. Your man with the voice can really sing and well suited to this piece, you got to get him to give up some more of his time to future projects. Nice one Jon, great to hear you on this. Cheers Guys.

Jazz-soul song...

well guys, this is a super sound... easy, smooth, sexy sounding with just the right amount of attitude. Thor... great soloing and playing. Ingve, great singing man. And the KTB keys are choice. I'm there in the crowd (over there at the table on the left with the good looking woman... my wife :)... listening and enjoying.

maybe
we can put a secret message at the end of the silence :-) seriously Thor, thx for the invite. I hope we can co-opt Ingve into our Mj gang. This reminds me a little of early Jeff Beck in the "Rough & ready" era. ala Alex Ligertwood vocals. Very cool progression and super smooth on the mix.

Nice...
...key changes...leads are sweet...straight through the amp...335's such a nice guitar and you really play it well, Thor

Got some blank space at the end...easy enough to clear up, I'm sure. Like the intro alot.

Something of that...
...'Thrill is Gone' feel in the rhythm section...I can definitely hear that touch of Jeff Beck Group, I can hear that bit of Elton John... I can still hear that touch of Boz Scaggs and 'Silk Degrees'...

I think you'll have to have a CD called 'So Easy'...

I like that you produce what some might hear as a "smooth jazz/blues" sound, but you give it bite...

I've always liked your music
To have John sitting in is like have butter to enhance the bread. Solid composition and mix.

I finally get to have a good listen
Great voice Ingve, and a typically excellent backing track Thor and John. Thor, I love your guitar playing, especially the more bluesy parts on this. Lovely keys John.
Great track!

YOU AND KTB
should start an online band, or at least do a CD project together. This is wonderful stuff Thor. Just wonderful! I didn't hear the first mix, but I sure like this one. Very pro sounding. Lovely keyboards, tasty guitar licks, honest vocals. Two thumbs up!

Be well friends!
