Description
Yanno, I wrote what I thought was this this very beautiful and poignant ballad revolving around that familiar theme of having one's heart broken. But it was so damned long and so boring (as those songs are want to be) that I scrapped it and just kind of condensed the whole thing down to the very basics and here it is.

Okay, so you read my mind! Now this was terrific, too short but oh so straight-forward and to the point. Nuts to you, too funny! Love this, love you, you da bestest!

Am I an incurable romtantic or what?
Well, yanno Impsie, I really hate singing those kinds of songs anyway, so this was the condensed version and I'm glad you liked it--hope you didn't snorkle any coffee while you listened! You take care now, xox

Thanks Tim
Well, consider this my "One Minute" challenge song. I'm always months behind these things! Maybe in four months I'll have my "Pass On It" challenge track ramped and ready to go. Thanks for listening! Michael

playful
your voice is smooth as ever. You certainly know how to make a statement...the abrupt ending said as much as another 8 minutes of song.

This is like that

Yanno, I never have seen that flick! Some years ago, I did a version of "Cuban Pete" and everybody was telling me they heard it in "The Mask"--I had no idea (I just remember Desi Arnaz singing on an old record I had!) Thanks for stopping in--as always, your comments are a delight to read and much appreciated! Take care now, Michael

Love your sign.
The incredible shrinking song. Not even a minute. Take the pink pill and make another longer one. (I don't mean anything but that you should make another song. You people!) Certainly wasn't boring and I agree with Chris. This could've been in The Mask. Thanks.

Hi John
Ah, yanno, I've listened to 33 seconds of water running on this site--stuff like that--so I guessed a minute or so of this would work just as well. I'm working on the rest, but in the interim, I greatly appreciated hearing from ya--take care now! Michael

It Swings!
Love the lyrics! I'm not sure whether you'll take it as a compliment that it's brevity is part of the secret of its success, but it's meant as one! Stunning brassy opening suggests this will be a full on dance tune, so it's quick ending is a shock, but it brings a smile to the face as you realiase that the singer isn't wasting any more time on the relationship. Clever idea brilliantly done!
michaeljayklein said 2124 days ago (July 31st, 2011)
Hey Phillip!
Well, some who know me well, realize I really hate singing those kinds of songs (something I should learn to deal with!), so glad you thought this quickie had some merit---thanks again! Michael

Well, as of late I've been attempting to work on doing my own backings, etc., but where credit is due on my other tracks, I always give the names of the people backing me up in my song intros. Thanks for the kind words and take care now! Michael (PS: This one was done using Mixcraft by the way, for once I didn't mention it!)

Adore the art signage too. Man oh man, that MixCraft thingy kicks some serious Brass... actually sounds pretty darned good... though you were probably correct in shortening it to a minute, that's a lot of notes! :-) Concise. Not my strong point, but I admire it in others. You make me smirk!

This is fantastic Michael! Just too short man! I was just getting into it and you stopped! What a tease you are! Guess I'll just have to get my ass back here and listen to some of your other tracks.... I've been missing out... I'll try. Things have been crazy, but this is worth the effort! I love big band! Top stuff if only a tease!

The long and the short of it
Just long enough not to feel shortchanged.

My only suggestion is you could've repeated the last line, "I say nuts to you" to make the ending feel definitive.

Ummm, OK, well, that threw me a curve. I was expecting a "short" ballad, and instead I got :46 of a kickass big band, in-your-face kinda thing, that leaves me somehow craving onion rings. I love it when people just get to the point. Thanks for posting.
