I really like this, it sounds like it could be in one of those feel-good 80s movies! I'm sorry I don't have much to say because I don't know much about this type of music, but it sounds very good to me and I figured I'd say that rather saying nothing at all :D

The guitar starting around 2:13 is epic and gives off an intense U2 vibe! Great job

It sounds deceptively easy. Makes me want to try, but I actually have tried similar without much success. This just flows along nicely. I really can't help with production at all; I'm clueless in that department. Maybe someday, but I'm not holding my breath.

Anyway, I definitely enjoyed it!

Well, that is so delightfully weird! My favorite part is the "metaphors mixed up" verse. And the chorus (the "Huh? Just a little" part is the chorus, right?) I can't really think of anything else to say about it. Well, except I really didn't miss the guitars. I liked the accompaniment. Now I want to try something like that....

Very interesting Neil!  And a bit bonkers.  In a good way.  The lyrics are really interesting... the scanning sort of doesn't work but then again weirdly it really does, because it feels like that is the point of them!  Very unconventional and rather surreal lyrics, and I love the way you actually reference that in the last verse with the lines about the rhyming scheme and metaphors.  Nice finish too.  I'm not really sure what it's about but it's very knowing, feels like it is giving you a wink.  Now, Lloyd Cole... one of my heroes... went to see him play in Guildford a couple of weeks back (and he played "Lost Weekend").  It's funny you mention him because his recent album also ditches the guitars a lot and is much more electronic, like this track.  Give it a whirl if you haven't already.

That's proper good Bin!  Love it in particular when the voice samples all start overlapping in the second half... they become like a wash of sound effects - very effective indeed.  If I didn't know it was you, I'd have guessed this had been made by some hip 19 year old megastar DJ.  Top production.  Your stuff is so versatile, never know what style you are going to dish up next.

Hi,
Here's a new tune written for a local songwriting challenge where we had to include some rather bizarre lyrics they're in middle 8.

Lyrically it was inspired by the hearing Lloyd Cole's 1985 single Lost Weekend and a set of personal experiences of the recent rainy weekends.

It was written and recorded in GarageBand on my iPhone and then transferred to my DAW to put the vocals, mix and master. Warning it contains no guitars.

Anyway thanks for stopping by and look forward to your feedback.

:-) neil

I've been been having issues with the weather
I mean its pouring cats and dogs
Trying to sort my breathing out
I can’t seem to get it right

Great to see you, looking happy
And we went up to town
Got my head stuck in the doors
Slightly painful, it made you laugh

Hurt? Just a little
With lots of helping hands
The kindness of human nature
Got me through this - filthy weekend

Got the train, better late than never
With the sleepers and the drunks
You had to wait, you’d had your date
Pretty tired but proud as punch

Food and drink & Mr Brad Paisley
You couldn’t take your bike
We had to drive to Nottingham
KFC, sweet emergency

Hurt? Just a little
With lots of helping hands
The kindness of human nature
Got me through this - filthy weekend

Kangaroo’s jump away
Desperately from life's strange consequences
Kangaroo’s jump away
Although their fluffy tails remain

I saw the words with no meaning
Didn’t understand a single thing
There was no icing on the cake
Or breaking the camels back

My metaphors were all mixed up
The rhyming scheme won’t work
Just knuckle down and sort it
With 48 hours of rain

Hurt? Just a little
With lots of helping hands
The kindness of human nature
Got me through this - filthy weekend

 Good evening Mr Skub ;D .  Hope all is well with you and yours old chap.

 I love this song mate, it's got all the ingredients that I want in a song, and they come together so well.
 Love the guitar playing.. of course, and the funky organ works a treat.  It builds well, and keeps giving.
 My only thought was that the drums were a bit too 'busy' in places....taste ::)

 Loved the Edge guitars....nailed it my friend.  A true Lion Of The Mountains ;D ;D
 take care...
