If You'll Be Here (with Scofugate)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I thought I'd try my hand at a straightforward love song... the lyrics came out sort of dopey but what the heck.
It is wonderful to have Scofugate providing his superior drumming skills!

Lyrics
when i first met ya i hoped i could getcha
i said to myself , she is one of the good ones
wouldn't have guessed what i'd be willing to do
but i'd do anything to hold on to you

if you'll be here with me
and tell me anything that your'e thinking of
as long as you're next to me
i don't care bout anything except love
who cares about anything except love.

don't wanna imagine always being alone
it's way too depressing, kinda like being homeless
no matter where, I would follow you far
greatest place ever is wherever you are

it's not just one life its all tied up in 5
i'm more than happy to to just shut up and drive
don't stay away from me another minute
don't wanna wake up or go to bed if you're not in it
i can't ignore my good luck anymore

Congratulations
Comes right out of the gate and just keeps powering on. Catchy hook chorus. Like the vocals! Like the lead break as well. Scott has been a busy boy too. Congratulations to all concerned. Take care, Peter.

If You'll Be Here
I hear so many influences here, Cheap Trick sprinkled with a bit of Weezer topped of with a glass of Ramones. I like it, cool vibe, cool song, excellent performances. Loud Mix!

i've been using the "loudness maximizer" on Ozone to try and compensate for Garageband's sometimes quiet output... hopefully it's not overdone on this one, I think it can be a bit grating if overused...
anyway glad you liked it, as a powerpop aficionado I like the bands you mentioned, although I never really got into cheap trick... they're going to take away my power pop membership card for admitting that!

Sounds like a garage band
except it's in tune, the playing's on the beat, everything's on the same page - you know, it sounds professional. (Say, is that smell your amp overheating?)

garage days revisited
the garage-y sound is pretty dear to my heart... I tend to like things a little raw and unpolished.
I thought I saw some virtual smoke coming out of the guitar rig virtual amp...

I was away when you posted this. Since I can't type well on my iPod I fanned it intending to download as soon as I got home! I love the XTC flavored chorus! Downloaded!

I did have to review the old mental storehouse before posting, to make sure the melody wasn't a complete rip from Andy Partridge (or Rivers Cuomo or Bob Mould for that matter!)
Glad you liked enough to dl! thanks for listening...

Silly Little Love Songs
I say it all the time, but you are a one-man Fountains of Wayne. Not in a "this sounds like their songs..." way. It's the meticulous attention to popcraft. It's sappy love songs, but your friends are cool with it because the guitars are loud and dirty. Perfect.

Unmistakable Sound
Is it my keen sense of hearing or did the very first note scream "This is a Relic67 tune!! Hang on!!"

What a difference a real life drummer makes - I mean, Scott is a real life drummer, right?

Much like Diane Arbus, you have a style all your own, which means you like to work with the people most others avoid.

Did I just say that out loud?

Thanks for another great download.

Thanks
So far, while he could be described as a "drumming machine," Scott has passed my personal Turing test of humanity...

Glad you liked it and happy new year!

I don't care
About anything but love. Relic, you took the words right out of my mouth. I feel exactly the same way. Thanks for posting this. Pure pop appeal, honest, energetic drumming....man...what were YOU thinking about? I have to meet this girl, guys.

Terrific
lyrics: "Don't wanna wake up or go to bed if you're not in it" I don't think they're dopey but accessible...how's that? A love song that grabs the beloved's attention and smacks her with a couple of love pats. Thanks.

Rock to roll
The lyrics are perfect for the melody and the vocal delivery carries this one. And the drums push this along. Great tune!

Thanks for the dl :)
