Description
I know the title sounds as though i'm touting at a seance, but No I'm not LOL.... mind you if the style was reminiscent of any style much older than this, then a seance might be the only way of listening in.
Well it's another romantic song to make you relax into your armchair ;and the solo guitar sound I found, really takes me back ,(to before i was born i think), but it's like a cosy Hawaiian sound I used to hear on the radio when i was very young.... just hope you like it.
By the way I hope I solved the problem of chords I've included bunching up at the beginning of the line, by my inserting full stops in between.

Lyrics
Is Anybody There

Intro G/ F/ C/ G F/ C/ G7
1..............C.....................................Cma 7.........................
Is there anybody there, got some love they wanna’ share,
...................C7............................................F......
‘Cause I’m here and waiting with an open heart,
.............Fm...............................................C....................A7....
Been a while since I knew love, tho’ I’ve prayed to up above,
.........Dm.........................................G......(G7)
And I hope I’m gonna’ get another start.
..............................
2 If there’s anybody there, who can say they got the flair,
For mendin’ broken hearts, then let me know,
Mine’s been broken for a while, tho’ i still know how to smile,
And I’ve lots of love inside that i can share.
...............................
Chorus.
(Gflat)G..............F.................C...................
Love feels fine when it wants to play,
(Gflat)......G........F....................E /E7...G...G7
but not so good when it flies awa-ay.
...............................
3.
So if there’s anybody there, in need of love and care,
I’m the one who completely understands,
Just what you’re goin’ through and to me there’s nothin’ new,
‘Paid the price and know just how much love demands.
.............................
Instrumental.
...........................
Chorus.
..........................
Repeat 3rd , then 1st verse.
........................
Outro.
.....................Am....................................Am7...........................
So if there’s any body there, got some love they want to share,
.............F........................Fm...............C......Cma7
Im still here and waiting with an open heart.

Voice in top form on this one Mo. Cozy is the word for this song. The Hawaiian guitar sets the tone and mood just fine and works for me-- ethereal and airy in the background. Another easy winner. it's mine now.

Sammy,
I'm so, so pleased that this type of music appeals to you as it's a kind of tester as to what people like, because I'm never sure whether they will go down well..... thanks for being the first here and for the nice words, cheers M

Ey up ...
Top of The Blackpool Tower this is,got a lovely old time waltzy or similar tempo vibe to it and it may be the crappy (unfortunately not at home) speakers but your organ sounds a bit like a Wurlitzer,and there's nowt wrong wi' that. Cracking good song ....

Hi Chris
I think a Slow Foxtrot is nearer the mark and it would fit in well as part of the Blackpool Tower repertoire, though the sound yo hear is a guitar impersonating a Hawaiian guitar. I think you would be better getting some headphones like i did Chris; makes a world of difference to the sound. Thanks a lot for giving this a listen and the nice comment, regards M

Definition of "smooth"!
Maurice, you do these so well. Your years of experience really show, although the chorus has definite modern sounds in the chord progression.
Another enjoyable post.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

I thought
this might meet with your approval Neil as it ties in with the last one but one that I posted.... thanks very much indeed for those kind words. Regarding the chorus chords; I didn't want to go for the obvious, so I went for a left turn for a change and then added the E and E7 to give another shift.... again thanks for the much appreciated listen, regards M

This has such a cool 50s vibe, a perfect blend of charm and charisma with just a hint of cheese which every romantic song needs well done Mo great job
Moviz said 2188 days ago (August 1st, 2011)
You're
spot on with that 50's association to this song Neil.... the guitar sound puts me in mind of the organs that used to rise up at the front of the Cinema in the interval and the Hawaiian guitar sound from the organ had just this very tone; yes very 'retro'...... and I'm glad you liked it, 'cheesy' bits as well LOL ( I know exactly what you mean), Cheers M

The Hawaiian tone is
from a guitar sound on the midi, which i manipulated with vibrato and echo; so I was pleased when i discovered that technique Stephen. Thank you for calling in to listen and more than pleased you enjoyed it, regards M

I feel like I'm in the 50 from that intro. Lovely song Maurice. Your voice is in fine form, and then the harmonies (as during 'when it flies away') are inspired. Love those chord progressions too sir.

Are you appearing in Brighton this summer?
