Until I Get A Boyfriend (unmix)

Description
Wow, been way too long on here (time is a cruel mistress). Very glad to have something to post, albeit an old one revisited (previously posted three years to the exact day by some weird coincidence: http://www.macjams.com/song/34595). My keyboard skills are still in Mr. Glick's high school class, AKA the last time I owned a keyboard, but I'm very glad to get back on that learning train. All thoughts as always welcome, and thanks very much for stopping through.

Lyrics
Cosmopolitan girl, where you going tonight?
City girl, I , I take your side in the fight, I take your side.
Everyday is the same, but you sure know to play it my way
We eat breakfast at 7 o' clock 'cuz we've been up just 'round the clock, dancin'
We're just dancin'
If you wanna be startin' something I take your side.

I'd bitch smack that guy when he try to touch your face
I will bitch smack that kid if she try to take your purse,
I dance with you, salsa tango,
Anything you want to do is fine with me
Salsa tango, anything you want to do is fine with me...
'til I get a boyfriend
(Until I get a boyfriend)
'til I get a boyfriend

(slow down)
Cosmopolitan girl, why you crying tonight?
Did he leave you alone again?
What am I supposed to do?
You don't listen to what I tell you to do
What am I supposed to do about it?
I told you to leave him alone
Leave her, leave them alone
Leave 'em alone!

My cosmopolitan girl, where are you going tonight?
My City girl/Country girl, I would take your side in a fight,
I'd _ take your side.
I'd take your side
I'd bitch smack that guy if he try to touch your face
I will bitch smack that kid when she try to take your purse,
Dance with you, salsa tango,
Anything you want to do is fine with me,
Salsa tango, anything you want to do is fine with me...
'til I get a boyfriend
(Until I get a boyfriend)
'til I get a boyfriend


Trail:
And when I woke
I knew you'd gone
I found your note
Inside my shoes, said
"Will & Grace was such a snooze,"
"Will & Grace was such a snooze"

I love the vocal and the melody. The little Jacko reference is cool. I like the electric piano. It could be louder. Is your guitar plugged in? I would try putting a mic in front of it instead. You'll get a more natural sound. And maybe pan the piano a bit to one side and the guitar a bit to the other. This one is off to a great start. Can't wait to hear where you take it.

thnx so much for the thoughtful listen and suggestions. I will definitely try out the guitar suggestion, I just automatically always have it plugged in, although I do notice it comes on a bit too strong that way sometimes. Many thanks!

Nice atmosphere with...
just your acoustic guitar and keyboard. And then you vocal. Excellent. Such light touches in your harmonies. And that ain't easy... unless, of course, it is a gift of talent which you surely have.

I'm glad I chanced clicking on your song. Thanks.

Great singing, Boi. The gentle voice merges with the guitar perfectly, and they are both speaking the same mood. I found myself caught up in the swaying feel of the song.

Fragile
but it develops rather well.

Confidence seems to build as the song progresses.

Cheers

Indeed..
...I think fragile is very appropriate, I get so nerve wracked when I have to duet myself :) Tnx as always for the support. Many Cheers!

great
A real treat to hear this jam. Kinda funny when you said "I'd bitch smack that guy if he try to touch your face
I will bitch smack that kid when she try to take your purse" So smooth when you said it. Nice work.
