Description
A love song!

Richard says

“Season 3 of Fargo starts with a ride in the snow to a backing track of Crazy on You by Heart. It's a 70s stadium rock masterpiece, but what really caught my ear was the absolute desperation in Ann Wilson's vocals.

It made me think about girl love songs v. boy love songs. Boys are generally singing about trying to get laid; girls are actually singing about love.

Shortly afterwards  a colleague told me about listening to Natalie Imbruglia's Torn during her 'hormonal teenage mess' years... If you're selling love songs, it seems to me, it's better to have some skin in the game”

Scary Bloody Desperate Deep (Ⓒ R.Marris 2018)

Boys singing their seductive lies
Pony tails and pretty faces
Just superficial hormone highs
While girls they look for lipstick traces

When they find them, what do they do?
They tell you how betrayal feels
Sliced right open, torn in two
A wound that nothing heals

So if you’re selling love songs
Get some skin in the game
Build a pyre, stack up the wrongs
Hold your hand over the flame

Scary, bloody, desperate deep
Growing pains and losing sleep
Can’t live without him have to keep
Until… cut out the cancer, lose the creep

Definitely
a change. More "advanced" in a lot of ways in the production. Still works nicely though.

More advanced?
Great comment, thanks! Although the song we're working on at the moment is shaping up to be loud guitars.

Thanks Sammmy.

Geez Dick...
Is this gorgeous or what?

Quite a departure from your usual political stuff!

I really dig this one!!!

Be well bro!

Yes
a departure. The political stuff will return but at the moment Richard is a roll with his writing so we'll see where that takes us.

Thanks for the listen and comments Mike!

Beautiful work
Great ensemble sounds very pro to me. Cool lyrics. Great keys, inc. little solo. Sonorous, tuneful vox.

I don't think it worked out how I expected but I enjoyed working on something very different in style and content.

I really like the piano progression
and choice of chords. Vocals emote well delivering the lyrics (reality). The strings add a nice touch. Drums/bass keep it all neat saving room for a brief and effective guitar lead. Nice mix and all around fantastic tune.

Interesting comment
the chords rather chose themselves as we were trying to be derivative but I guess something went wrong on the way!

Thanks for the listen and I'm pleased you enjoyed it.

Lovely Song
The most melodic song I've heard today on MacJams. Really like the bridge in particular (i.e. So If You're selling love songs ……..). I think this could be developed into a chorus to be repeated in the end with harmonies. Just my thought. Awesome songwriting indeed, an enjoyable listen for me. Thanks.

Hi Mike and thank you!
It started a pop song but sort of morphed into something different.

The chorus bit has been mentioned a few times, perhaps we dismissed it too readily when we arranging the song!

Many thanks for the listen and comments.

Cheers
