Lyrics
Oh I recall the way you used to love me
You always used to treat me like a queen
But lately I've been missing your affections
I feel that someone else has come between

The mem'ries of those summer nights are with me
Our dancing days were only just the start
But if you should depart
Well that would break my heart
Oh, love me love me love me like you used to

I know I should try to be patient
And give you time to figure some things out
But it is really hard to be patient
When I know that you're out and about

I miss those days when loving you was easy
Just to have you near me made me smile
Now it seems your love for me's uncertain
We haven't had that feeling in a while

The mem'ries of those summer nights are with me
Our dancing days were only just the start
But if you should depart
Well that would break my heart
Oh, love me love me love me like you used to
Oh, love me love me love me like you used to
Oh, love me love me love me like you used to

This is so refreshing ... don't hear a lot of this on MJ. Nice light swingin' feel and a big thumbs up to your daughter who did a great job of the vocals. Enjoyed your clean guitar playing ... wonderful chording and picking.
Cheers

Thanks much
I am grateful for your kind words. As for the song, we were in the mood for something fun and swinging; I am glad you liked it. Over the holiday season, I was listening to a swinging Christmas channel on Pandora; I think I came under its spell.

Classy, toe-tapping fun
Lovely vocal, and cool guitar playing. I'd love to hear this with a real drummer, as I don't think the repetitive drum loop, while being a good time-keeper, really helps the tune.
Glad to have found this.
Cheers from Down Under!

I would love to have used a real drummer, but they require either payment or food or both. Believe me, I was very happy to have put together a drum loop that sounded vaguely authentic. Thankfully GB makes some of this work pretty easy.
Cheers from Up Over!

Drummers
Hi Tom, there are a few drummers at MJ who are sometimes happy to help out (for free of course): Loob is one I've worked with who enjoys collaborations and plays well. I use midi drums on most of my songs - occasionally I have used kevmikwa, but he is not always available (although a great drummer). There's one other, but his name escapes me. There are also some good free loop collections which offer "fills" as well as variations on basic beats. If you are using Garageband or Logic, you should have access to these.
So, no need to pay session fees :)
Cheers,
N

Love me like you used to
This is very easy to listen to! Warm vocal. Neat chords on the guitar and that muted sound, then the sharper one, on the guitar solo works well. Bass and drums keep things walking along. Congratulations to you and your daughter, Tom!

Thanks
Thanks for stopping by to listen to our song. During the guitar solo, I was trying to create the illusion of two guitar-cowboys trading riffs. I'm glad you liked it.

Thanks for your kind appraisal of our song. The song developed over time into a country swing song, and it was fun to work with those "idioms."

I am glad you stopped by for a listen. I do love those country/jazz guitarists. They have phenomenal chops and taste. I'll have to look into Bill Shipman.

Easy on the ears....
This is a sweet little tune that your daughter sings with a confident, clear, and very pleasant voice...while you provide some really slick guitar work to back her up. The big bridge is really nicely done, Tom. I like the minimal elements represented in your arrangement. They suit the lyrics and the style of presentation perfectly. Beautiful work. More, please.

Thanks for stopping by to listen. We put this together very quickly, so that may account for the minimal approach. Perhaps it was for the best to keep it simple?

Fun
You two stepped into my heart with this one. As a resident of Austin, I am sure you know that I have heard a lot of this kind of music. Liked everything about it. Lyrics, melody and it did indeed swing.
