Description
One of my newer upbeat style songs. The song kind of describes how we can see such outer beauty and it can distract the poorer qualities in a person and just make us not care even though your brain is saying something else. Like the old saying "Love is Blind " I still want you, even though I know better. NOTE:YES THE GUITAR IS PANNED IN THE BEGINING INTENTIONALY! IT'S HOW I WANTED IT! Thanks for Listening!

Lyrics
I Still Want You By Jim Lichtenberg

I watch you from a distance
You're always on my mind
You're making bad decisions
I see it all the time
But I still want you
I still want you
I still want you

It's the same old situation
the nice guy finished last
you've been giving me mixed signals girl
then you go and turn your back
But I still want you
I still want you
I still want you

Every time I turn around
I'm right back where I started
Every time I think of you (see your face)
I'm the one who's broken hearted

Your eyes just paralize me
I don't know what to do
I'll never ever give up hope
I know my love is true
cause I still love you
I still want you
I still want you

Refrain

I'm watching you from a distance
I guess I'm not your type but I still want you
I still want you
I still want you

I'm the one who's always lonely
I just don't understand
I'm the one that you could count on
But I'm not your kind of man
I'll always love you
I still want you
I still want you , want you, want you !

Good tune and the vocal is quite good. At first having the guitars panned so far to the right and alone seemed odd. But as the full ensemble came in the mix made more sense.

That's the great thing about being a artist. there are NO RULES. I knew in my head how I wanted it to sound and that's what I recorded. I'm glad you like my tune. Thanks

Much enjoyed James!
The song was almost over before we heard any lead guitar. I myself wanted to hear more leads. Good tune man!

Loob, although I'm playing all the instruments in the song the LEAD Guitar is not my Forte. Bass guitar and vocals are my stronger points. Just trying to get all of my songs of old and New recorded.
Glad you liked it. Thanks

I also thought it strange the guitar panned to the far right but when it all kicked in it was alright. I like your vocals and the tune rocks. Good harmonies. Nice job

Thanks ! I am known for not always doing practical studio work.
I actually wanted to draw some attention at the begining of the song just to spark interest then kick it in. I guess I accomplished it based on comments. lol thanks for the comment. I'm glad you like it

Infectious (in a good way :-))
Hi James. Good pop song! I like the way the guitars are mirroring the vocals. The song has an upbeat, infectious feel and a nicely balanced mix.Perhaps you could get around the strange feel of the opening by starting the guitar centered and then slowly pan it out to the right to be in position when the vocals kick in? Enjoyed, Peter.

Infectious. I totaly take that as a compliment. a co-worker of mine listened to this from a link on facebook and he was singing it to me this morning. It truly made my day to hear someone I hardly know singing one of my songs. strange opening is good ! he said it was stuck in his head all morning. Thanks Peter It's so nice to hear someone say good pop tune. Really glad you liked it.

Good hook, and the lyric develops an easy to relate to situation well. Bridge is a good contrast and the turnaround from bridge back to verse works well. Catchy tune. Driving groove, good arrangement, playing is tight and good vocals/harmonies.

Thanks Dave, You and those Bridges. Lol you are very kind. I create music by emotion and expression I don't get into all of the theory
and rules and breaking things down. I just love writing and recording my material. I always appreciate your comments Thank you and I always enjoy your work also. Jim L

Authentic energy
Strong classic tune, nice retro feel, and I dig the layered vocals. Authentic energy. I like the upbeat feel, the classic good-but-silent man lyrics, and the photo of you playing bass and singing with the stage lights in the background. Very enjoyable. Thanks.

Another cool tune!
Agree with the feeling here. The initial panning is a little bothersome. Yes there are no rules but often when you hear something repeatedly it probably means it could use a change.

I enjoyed this tune quite a bit once it got going. Your vocals rounded out the initial panning issue. Anyway nice work!

Something to think about
While you don't enable the download just by being posted here the music can be downloaded. There are many ways to do so and there are many sites and people that will download it. So not sure why you don't enable download but if you are trying to protect your music then posting it is the easiest way to give it away. Its sort of a catch22... You want to post to get feedback but the moment you do your music is out there for free to copy and pass around!

Several of my early tunes which didn't have download enabled because they were written and owned by my friends have been found by me in a number of places on the web where I didn't put them. I even found one that had been made into a ringtone!

Anyway looking forward to more of your work!

Great Pop feel.
We always want... even when the something or the someone is bad for us. People are stupid like that. I'm sure this resonates with a lot of listeners. Good post. Thanks.
