Description
This is my entry for the LSP contest; a light little number for easy listening with a beat. Wasn't thinking about the lost songs when I began this song... until I realized whose style this was. The piano part isn't in this version LOL (can't play well enough).He recorded lots of songs from blues to jazz from the early fifties (I think) and had a comic style with him. His music still sells as I gad to look for an album that this should have been added to.... and yes they're still selling.

Lyrics
I'm often told I'm a dreamer,
I sometimes think that it's true,
'Cause things just seem to happen, When I think about you.

Some might say I'm a schemer,
How else could I have met you?
I had to work to persuade you,
To make my dreams come true.
Chorus
I had to think of somethin'
To bring you to my point of view,
So I just told you that I love you,
An' now you've made my dreams come true.

Verse
Now all the time that I'm dreamin"
Weavin' lovely thoughts about you,
I hope an' pray that you're schemin'
Just to make my dreams come true.
Scat break ( no not that! LOL)

I had to think of somethin',
to bring you to my point of view,
So I just told you that I loved you,
Then you made my dreams come true,

Now all the time that I'm dreamin"
Weavin' lovely thoughts about you,
I hope an' pray that you're schemin'
Just to make my dreams come true.
I hope schemin' dreamscome true....
All the time...
Just keep on schemin'... an' make my dreams come true..
Make 'em all come true, Baby I'm yours.

Stumped
I really think I have heard this guy before, but I can not put a name to the sound. Nice light hearted song. I will listen again and maybe have a guess.

Thanks
Bill

The clue
is really in the melody and as a pianist you should have a clue... and that's a clue, Regards M

peacepiano said 3456 days ago (December 5th, 2007)
Guess
This musician was a piano player, and he is still pretty popular so I will suggest Jimmy Durante.

LOL Nope!
Not him, but I like it... you've suggested him on another of my songs LOL Are you trying to say something about my nose ??? LOL cheers M

peacepiano said 3455 days ago (December 6th, 2007)
LOL
I don't recall making the reference before, but now that you mention noses ;)

Seriously, I think the light hearted style and first class presentation of your music has some similarity to Durante's. Back to the drawing board on my guess, and only a couple days left!

I can't figure the artist, but you strike a really nice shuffle here. Your vocal is outstanding, esp liked the little improv/solo vox. A little louie armstrong in there. nice mix

asked you to do the piano bit for me, because mine's being tuned LOL( I lie... I can't play well enough for this style) as there should be a piano there as well. Thanks for the nice comment John, regards M

The piano comment kinda rules this out
but I hear Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks. I know that's not it - but now I've gotta do a little research. Fantastic song though - I really like the mood and swing. I'll be back.

sloparts said 3456 days ago (December 5th, 2007)
If this is supposed to sound like Louis Armsrong.
You nailed it Maurice. Fantastic lyrics and the rhythm guitar sound perfect for the song. I'd like to see you replace the muted trumpet with a regular trumpet or sax part. Also you might want to use a standup bass instead of a bass guitar. But hey, what do I know. other than that I really like what you've done here Maurice, it's a great song and definitely one Sachmo would have done.

Great work my friend

It is..
a song he might have done, but alas Ed, it's not him LOL. I'm not mad on the trumpet sounds I have, that's why I tweaked on one of my 'Stiff' sounding horns for a softer more intimate sound, and the bass was a 'session bass'. Glad you approve anyhow, thanks a lot Ed

Hihihihi, I see a slapstick movie. Bad ending, but better for all. She either learned from her scheming or he is satisfied with life (=her) as it is. Very sweet execution. Baby I'm yours.....

The Way the Guesses Are Going...
I was beginning to think Rudy Vallee, but that may be stretching the Time Machine a wee bit TOO much. lol

I could be wrong, Maurice, but I believe this may be the first MJ tune with scat singing. ;)

Nice job on the style... maybe Cab Calloway?

He's not
the one, but good guess. As I said earlier the clue is in the melody as well as the style. I could have done a vocal impersonation of him as most people can, but....didn't LOL... just the style, regards M

paul f. page said 3456 days ago (December 5th, 2007)
I don't...
...know that much about vocal music popular history, so I won
t speculate...but I know a comfortable song when I hear one. This is it! Such a mellow rendition filled with all sorts of confidence and perfect control of every element. Your vocals are really wonderful here. It reminds me a little of "I'm sittin' on top of the world...".. that REALLY goes back a long way... Anyway, I am so glad my download worked tonight so that I could hear this little jewel of a number. Soooo smoooooooothe.....Yeh.
Peace.

Thanks Mikey
keep thinking about the melody and you'll get it. I'll just say that one person here has got it right though, regards M

Out on a limb
George Formby??? I can only think of one song he did that is a little in this style, but I think he's before my time.

Lovely swinging lilt to this Maurice! Well made, and I really enjoyed the tune.

Keep well,
Doug

Love this style.... This is such a cool track, well done Maurice!!!!!! Sounds like the mid to late Forties, maybe early fifties.... grand music poured out of those little boxes into the air then and this little diddy is just awesome!!!!!!

Mucho thanks,

This was done in a kind of competition a while ago where the listeners had to guess whose LP the song would be missing from. This one was 'The very best of Fats Waller', Glad you enjoyed it, cheers M

Love the stories you tell moviz
your words seem well thought out. Enjoy the scat singing, I am not sure were you get your singing experience, but it sure sounds like you had public experience for sure. It sure seems to me. I'll have to read your bio.

Very pleasant to listen to Moviz.
