DREAM LADY

Description
I had a hard time deciding what genre to place this song in. It's basically made up of jazz chords and, therefore, definitely has a jazz feel. I meant it as a Pop song but it doesn't sound like current Pop. So I'm placing it in the Soft Rock genre which seems a better fit. I used drum loops, otherwise it's all me.

The image is an adaptation of a painting I did a few years back.

Hope you enjoy the song. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Lyrics
DREAM LADY

Your eyelids are slowly falling
Under the weight of your dreams.
So, you lie down here beside me;
Loving you is such and easy thing.

My dream lady.
Lady, lay down and dream by me.

When the moon is on the water
You draw me like the tide.
And as the oceans kiss the beaches
My love reaches inside.

My dream lady.
Lady, lay down and dream by me.

Too many nights I spent alone,
My life had become routine.
Until the night I found you.
You brought me love
And taught me how to dream.

So, lie back and hold me closer
as we make love in between
the path of stars, yeah, bright as diamonds,
that illuminate your dreams.

My dream lady.
Lady, lay down and dream by me.

Your best yet JT!
This is a really nice tune. I really like the lyrics. I agree...it's a Pop arrangement, but more "old school" (which to my ears is a GOOD thing).

Hey! You really painted that picture? Man you're talented!

Be well!

Hi Michael
I'm so glad you liked this one. I had intended to post this song soon after I'd joined MacJams back in Sept but I couldn't get anything for the last verse that I really liked. Must have gone through six or seven different verses before I got something I could live with.

Yes, the painting is one I did back several years ago of a woman along the beach near my home. Only it's a daylight scene and I digitally darkened it, then inserted a moon and stars so the image would more closely represent the song.

Peace

Hey Vic
Thompson Twins, hummm...yeah, I suppose there's a bit in the song that reflects their sound. They had some cool tunes on the radio back then. Wonder whatever happened to those guys?

I don't think that painting has ever appeared on my site. Maybe some day, I'll post it in the gallery section.

Thanks for stopping by and listening.

All the best!

Nice tune
but take a listen to the arrangement. The piano and the bass play more or less the same line. As do the vocal and the guitar. Some more independence might be nice.

Hey Vic
Thanks so much for stopping by to listen and comment. Yeah, I hear what you're saying in the chorus. I'm afraid I have no background in music theory and just play from the gut. I'll tinker around with the tune and repost if I can figure out a better way to arrange the instruments.
Many thanks.

Thanks, Timothy
Yes, I looked your work up the other day on the web (as a result of the occupations posting in the forum) and have been meaning to tell you how impressed I was. Very surrealistic and very large. A lot larger than most of my paintings.

Thanks for stopping by to listen and for your generous comments. Glad you liked the song.

All the best in the coming year!

Simply beautiful!
What a very very sweet tune!!! Man - Some really sublime tones your sharing here -

I love the symplicity of this.

I Love the vocals and I especially like the lyrics too - I like the way the bass just kind of lightly stolls you through this very pleasant walk through what sounds to be quite the colorful fantasy.

So why isn't this at the top of the charts??? Really!

I like the keyboard and synth work on this too. Nice percussive action, too.

Did I mention I how much I like your voice... - Much more than listenable. Dign' the harmony background work on this -- I like the way you inflect tones - it really resonates with me. At some point, I started to tear up, but don't know why I stopped myself - It's not a sad song, so who knows...

I guess it's clear that I like everything about this.

Anyhoo, I enjoyed listening to each of the some ten to twelve times that I've played this, so far - I'm very sorry that it's taken me so long to listen to it. My loss.



Thanks JT! Macca

Wow, thanks Macca
I'm overwhelmed. I really appreciate your comments. I worked on this song for quite a while, trying to get the dreamy feel I wanted in both the sound and lyrics.

I suppose I should mention an old buddy of mine, Mark Pleasant, gave me the idea for the bass line. I'm stunned that you like the vocals--since I rarely like the way I sound on a song. I just keep recording until I get a take where I don't go off key--then pretty it up in Garageband as much as I can.

Anyway, thanks for listening and telling me how much you liked the song. It really gave a lift to my day.

All good things!

intriguing...
Overall, I like the unusual-pop style. Critiques are: your singing should have a little more emotional inflection... this is a dreamy piece, so you should sound more wistful... you instead sound like you're reading off cue-cards, except for the harmonies, which are great. The lyrics are a little "plain", I'd like more metaphors sprinkled in, since this is dreamy. For example, maybe change "Lady, lay down..." (which kept reminding me of "Lay lady lay..") why not say "Lady, drift down.." or something (which sounds more ethereal.) The sax was a little loud and thin, maybe needed a little reverb. OK, that's all the nits, but mostly I am critiquing because I really like the guitar performance, singing, mood, and intent of lyrics. Very nice piece of music, which could become great with some tweaking!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Hi Eduard
Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a well-thought out response. Yeah, I know I'm a little reserved in my singing and I think the "cue-card" charge is accurate on the last verse. It was freshly written shortly before I posted it and I think the newness of it made me hesitant to let my hair down with it. I like the comment on the sax too. I"ll try more reverb and see how it sounds. And I see what you're saying about the "Lady, drift down" and will think it over but I've always liked the repetition and internal rhyme of "Lady, lay down" even though it should be "Lady, lie down."
But I'm glad you like the song overall and I'll definately incorporate many of your ideas when i go back and tweak some more.
Many thanks!
