Re: Rain Rain

Hi,
Good direct and catchy tune. Which provides a good platform for you. Dreamy vocals and story.
Like the guitars and harmonies. It's like it's been demo found in the vault and has its own charm.
Neat one

Re: Rain Rain

Hi RedRhodie

Nice song, and a great idea.

I felt that the verses might benefit from a bit of variety to the melody, and meter of the lyrics, I found myself knowing what was coming all too soon, take a risk and hike the melody upwards, or downwards, and leave out lyrics making space for the melody that people have in their heads from the first verse.

As they say in Jazz, if it's more than 50% predictable people will be bored, and less than 50% then they'll also be bored.

Hope you don't mind.

Re: Rain Rain

Thanks Neil. I appreciate the kind words. Glad you liked it.

Interesting thoughts cpm, but it seems I'm damned to be boring no matter what. Oh well. I guess you can't win 'em all.

Re: Rain Rain

Hi, a nice uplifting 60's vibe to this. Like the vocals they suit the vibe, and it didn't sound too much like anything I know Huh.
Well done!
Cheers
Jamie

Thanks for listening, Jamie.

Yes, I'm in a band. Right now it's me, Dave and Keith. We don't play live at this point.

Thanks for the nice words.

Re: Rain Rain

Hi Lynn,

It reminds me of that song... insert title of a quality 60s song. Grin

Nothing leapt out at me - just sounded great.

I'm a sucker for 60s rock/pop, so it works for me.

Strong tune and vocal delivery.

What's not to like?

Re: Rain Rain

Hi,

Lovely 60's vibe. Very good vocals and groovy rhythm.
Not sure if I like the jangly guitars ...

Anyway, Good stuff!
