Description
Like a lot of others (according to the Forum), I'm coming out of a bout of stagnation and thought I and others needed something to give a lively bounce in our step, to set us all on the way to warmer more pleasant weather. So i hope this jazzy pop sound I just rustled up, will give everyone a boost...... dance along if you like LOL, M

Lyrics
The Hub Of Life
C Fma7
1.When I got to wond’rin’ where my life would go,
C Fma7
Thinkin’ of the path that I would take,
C Fma7
Plannin’ all the moves, so my best side would show,
C Fma7
‘Couldn’t see the blunders I would make.
E7 Am
I had to pull my socks up, so the world would see,
E7 Am
The time was right to see what life would hold,
F Dm7
There’s a path that everybody has to follow,
Gadd9 G7
A road that everybody has to go,

Chorus
Am D7
We need to get out there and feel the hub of life,
Am D7
Can’t do it if we only talk the talk,
Am D7
Need to get out there and feel the cool fresh air,
F Dm7 G / G7
We really need to walk the walk.

2.Take a look around to see what life will hold,
Walk along in someone else’s shoes
Sittin’ all alone at home while life unfolds,
Is gonna’ be the place you get the blues.
So put your best foot forward, open up the door,
Choose the path you think you’re gonna’ like,
Nothin’ wrong with branchin’ off another way,
Experience will meet you as you hike.

Chorus
3.
Welcome all the problems that will come your way,
As you try to solve them you will grow,
Life would just be boring, if every day,
Nothing ever came to spoil the flow.
People say they learn from their mistakes,
And it’s true for everyone I know,
When they overcome the troubles life can bring,
That’s the time they always want to sing.
Repeat chorus x2

Maurice Vizard.

Awesome M
Great upbeat positive song.

Your singing on this one is very cool.

The mix on this one is very good, your voice stands out shining and clear.

The whistling also gives the song a very carefree feel to it.

Maurice
The recording of your vocals here seems way better than even the most recent of your posts. You seem to have been able to get away from that "phased" sound. Whatever you've changed - remember it!

The song itself inspires thoughts of "Life Of Brian"'s "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life".

Very uplifting and nicely recorded all round (ie not just the vocal - although that's outstanding.

Cheers from Oz,
Neil

I know
what you mean Vic with the volume thing LOL; I had it happen to me with others from time to time.... scary! The volume seemed to come with the particular setting I used in Ozone I think, but it was OK for me, though a little on the loud side. Nice to know I'm playin' with the big boys now LOLOL. Well i thank you for taking a listen here and for the kind words on the production too, cheers M

What a feel good song! I don't know why, but it reminds me of the Beatles Sgt Pepper. Its probably the brass. This really gets the blood flowing!
Very nice, Thanks,

I've never
used 'brass' to this extent in a song before, but your right, it does give a certain 'zest' to a song as if there's a big party going on in the background. Thank you for listening and the nice words Stephen, regards M

life hits you... BANG!
This started with a bang! Made me sit up straight. The chorus reminds me gently of Moody Blues, for some reason. Love the singing and the whistling, and the upbeat nature of this, thank you, Maurice! All those 7 thingies on the chords confuse my poor simple ears sometimes, but this was quite nice. :-)

Very cool Maurice
I think this may be my favorite song of yours. It gets more enthralling as it goes along. Kind of has a "Turtles" feel to it. This style works great for your voice. The harmonies are simple and work great for this song. Excellent song. I think the world needs an old music revival. New music is forgetting its roots in many ways IMO.
