Rita And Joe

Get Flash to see this player.

Been a Club Musician more than most of my life and it cost me many a relationship. Occupational Hazard perhaps but what's everyone else's excuse? Rita And Joe are a real couple who frequent the local nightclubs I regularly perform in. They are wonderful together. They give this jaded heart reason to believe Love is real and can function and survive in todays world. Just thought there would be other who'd dig this positive vibe. I think I've melodically captured the magic fairly well. Enjoy, Moptzar.

Rita & Joe (A Love Like That)
intro. A2 F#m6 A2 F#m6
verse: A F#m Bm E7
I wish that we could be like Rita and Joe
A F#m Bm E7
The way he looks at her when they dance real slow
Bm E7 A AM7 F#m
The way she blushes when he sings the song in her ear
Bm E7
He ribs her, she laughs
A AM7 F#m Bm E7
After all these years together. You know...
A F#m A A#o Bm E7
I Want a Love Like That. It isn’t unattainable by far.
A F#m
You make me feel like that.
A A#o Bm E7
I’m willing and able if you are.
Bm E7
Do you want a Love like That?
I Do
bridge: D E A AM7 A7 A/E
And Someday, when the kids are all grown
When we’re finally left to our own devices
I’ll have you and you’ll have me
A AM7 F#m A/E Bm7 E7
And all that was meant to be, will be.
A2 F#m6

Good one!
Like that cool background atmosphere a lot! Wonderful melody and nice production! Can it be that I hear a kind of auto-tuning on the voice?

Great song & idea
Caught my eye because my prior manager was Rita, and she remarried
a soul-mate named Joe, and they danced off together. And now that
I've (finally) found mine, I can see myself being out there dancing with
my love, inspiring wonderfully sappy love songs... and I mean that in a
very good way! :-) Very nice lyrics, well sung (and whistled), loved the
song writing & production, everything was clear and well balanced. I
don't normally mark soft lounge music as a Favorite since it's not
normally my style, but I'm doing so here because its a great song and
wonderful sentiment! Great job!

great songcraft
Cool how how you create the "Rita & Joe" atmosphere... You've used
the sound scape to put us in a nightclub in the 60's... goes great with
the song.... this is a very well crafted song and you sing it with ease...
