Description
This just came about as a result of me 'forcing it' so to speak. I was getting no inspiration for some reason, so i plonked and plinked a few of my regular chord patterns and this popped up. Quite retro in style (what did you expect ?LOL), but I hope you find it listenable.....I've added the chords so you can play along. M

Lyrics
Too Many Times.

1.Too many times I’d sit alone and wonder if there’s someone, to lift my heart,
And when it seemed I’d found that certain someone,
I thought , we’d never part.

Chorus.
Too many chances, too many glances, too many whispers in my ear,
Too many lonely nights, too many neon lights,
Too many rumours, all sayin’ things things that I’d fear.

2.Too many times the signs all said that you were cheatin’,
I couldn’t see it, because love is blind.
Too many times I just mis-read the lies you kept repeating,
I didn’t mind; you know love is blind.

Repeat chorus.

3.Now from a distance I can see what I’ve been missing,
Wile you were a’kissin’ all those other guys.
I don’t regret the days we shared, in fact I’m reminiscing,
‘Bout when we last said our ‘Good-byes’.

Repeat Chorus. x2

Verse chords are;- G/ Bm/ Em/ A7/ D7 /G/ Bm/ Em/ A7/ D7 (G7)
Chorus Chords are;- C/ Cm/ G’ G flat/ ( G7) C/ Cm/ D7/ E7 3rd fret/ D7.

Great ideas
come often unexpected don't they ? A VERY listenable song :-) Nice upbeat rhythm and I like the way the organ accompanies the song. Great vocals as usual Maurice, a great listen.

I'm sure
glad you liked it Yves; I got a bey disheartened at one point, because I couldn't get the drums right or the vocal balance...... so thanks for giving the thumbs up, regards M

Sometimes
Inspiration comes easy and it totally fails to gel and then you "force" some creativity and you come up with a gem. And you have one here. You hit the style perfectly with the music, lyrics and mood. No matter how it came about, it definitely works. Nicely done!

That's right Joe
sometimes what comes easy doesn't really work, but as I said to Yves above I got frustrated at times to the point where I couldn't tell if it was any good or not, so to have you call it a 'Gem' really gave me a boost, thanks so much for the very nice words, regards M

"too many neon lights"
Yeah my man I feel the pain here and that's a good thing. I think many of us have had an experience we can relate to this piece and those of us who have know this song well. Excellent capture of an all too frequent heartache endured! Real & Felt

Ah, Ricky
So perceptive of you.... You know, I never thought about it when I was writing the lyrics, but after reading your comment, 'art' really has mirrored life in this instance. Just goes to show that it all stays in the subconscious.... (from 35 yrs ago in this case).... who would believe it? LOL, regards M

Jarvo..

Too many whispers
Listenable? You're kidding, right? More than listenable, Mr V. I've not listened at home yet through decent headphones but over my in ear ones this sounds great. Some real left turns in those chords that really catch the ear and I can't wait to run through it on the guitar when I get in. Many thanks for posting the chords! Excellent track Maurice.

I've had friends
with talent who when asked if the had done anything lately would too often say they didn't feel inspired.

If we always wait for magic soon nothing comes. I like this quite a lot Maurice and retro is just fine with me.
Cheers,
Charlie

Maurice, I believe there's always more transpiration involved than inspiration, although you need a spark :-)
Man , I dig that organ
A fine sing-along song :-)
Enjoyed

I can't
argue with that Cees, though I thought I might have hit a 'dud' with this one..... and regarding the organ, I did have the left hand as well originally, but it seemed to muddy the water a bit, so I removed it and just left the right hand, with guitar chords as the left, regards M

I dont know what to say if this was done recently however it has a great vintage style and the vocals are great and I hear a calypso styles rhythm it gives me that time where everything was real like food,cars,and people however the vocals are smooth and on point and the organ is carrying the song real nice thanks for your style of music

Moviz said 1874 days ago (February 9th, 2012)
It was
only done last week Kai, but the retro just seems to live with me LOL..... I used two different drum loops, one with syncopation, which is probably where the calypso feel comes in. Really pleased you get a good feel from the song, so thank you kindly, for those complimentary words, regards M

have liked to sing this when I was younger, because it's just asking to be played around with vocally and I don't have the same abilities anymore, but i appreciate you giving a listen Sig, thank you, regards M

Whispers
This just leaps out of the headphones. Love the changes and the doo-wop melody. Has an early Beatles feel that I just love. Love that organ part.

I can see folks dancing to this...sort of a fast 'slow" dance.

A really well-written and performed tune, Maurice.

Maybe that's why my songs have that retro feel; too much melody judging from a lot of what i hear on the radio/TV these days.... I must try to 'dum' down a little LOL, Cheers M

Quite retro
And it seemed like Roy Orbison would have originally had a hit with this, although I know that can't be possible! I loved the chord structure on this and your lyrics, melody and performance are always identifiable in their excellence, which are on prominent display here Maurice. A very good one from you and thanks for presenting it to us (my ears thank you too!) Michael
