Tell them You're Wrong


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
A new song born of my desire to get some acoustic guitar back into my work. A touch country in places, reflecting my love of the alt.country scene.
A fairly basic setup here, of my Gibson LP and my PB, with Toontrack providing the drums as ever. It took me about 24 hours from sitting down to write, to this final version, in 3 x 3 hours stints.
Lyrically it's about that person cose to you who never truly acknowledges they've got it wrong. I'm sure we've all met them, or we are them.
Short and sweet, I hope you like it.

Lyrics
You can
Buy me presents
You can apologise all you want
But you gotta realise
that nothing's gonna change now
Unless you tell them, tell them you were wrong

Driving past Madelines
I held up my heart
But you kicked me, kicked me to the kerb
I hoped for your liberty
For all that it means to me
I you, told you they'd come

Don't be foolish, cos you're by my side
Tell them that you're wrong
And you wont have to fake your pride

Thrown out like petty trash
I raised up my game
I changed me but I cant change you
The time that we spent
always voicing dissent
is over now you gotta understand

Don't be foolish, cos you're by my side
Tell them that you're wrong
And you wont have to fake your pride

The acoustic guitars sound really good and I like the way it build up.
Your vox and the harmonies work really well.
The bass feels a little bit empty in parts and I sort of wanted it to colour the song a bit more. Just a few extra noted here and there would add a bit more to this but part from that great song
cheers

24 hours?
That's damn fast for something that sounds pretty polished. Guitars and vocals sound great though the vocal effects may separate them from the guitars a little too much, but that may just be me.
Gotta get me one of them computermabobs (some vocal chords would be good, too ;-) Cheers.

I have such respect for a straight up tune like this
Sounds great - and the message is solid - carried by excellent doubled vocal. You should be proud of this one. REM - Sun Volt - Mekons - the good stuff is here.

the excellent lyrics to the original treatment and melody this is really good and very catchy..... I don't know what i expected when it first started... I love that strumming in the back especially; great vocals and arrangement and like I said, something very original you've produced.... enjoyed, regards M

Dude
I didn't give you permission to use that picture of me. Man this has a 60's vibe to me, especially the doubled low/high vocals in the verse and the tambo. Really like that a lot. Vocals in the chorus are great too. Solid tune - nice outtro too.

This song would sound so great live... like all great alt country tunes. I'm at Long Wongs (the old location on Mill Ave). The feedback in the solo - divine.

I grew up in the 70's and 80's in the south of the UK in an Irish family. I had always loved music but was never given an opportunity to explore making it for myself. About 10 years ago I bought an acoustic guitar and began strumming in earnest. To d... [see more]
