Description
I just wrote this song two days ago and I'm too excited to wait till its perfected to post it. I've changed the lyrics and music a little bit since this version, but let me know if you guys like it! It's simple but I think it might be kinda special.

Lyrics
When no one’s around and you’re feeling down
Get on the upbeat
When you’ve lost your heart and don’t know where to start
Just get on the upbeat

Cuz I been playing on the downbeat for too long
Maybe the remedy is to fall into a song
And just get on the upbeat
Just get on the upbeat

When you hit the dirt and it fuckin hurt
Get up and get on the upbeat

When you want to cry and your eyes are dry
Play me something upbeat

Cuz you can play on the downbeat for so long
Maybe the remedy is to fall into a song
And just get on the upbeat
Just get on the upbeat

Noah.. was so happy to see a song with you!!
You got me...
at the second verse I had tears in my eyes..
(I know too well how life can be a bitch..but I'm good now..)

So great hearing your voice again! You have a powerful voice & I'm glad you didn't perfect it, hearing you when you're playing LIVE : )
How's your busking going? Are you travelling through different states? Will you link me to your homepage?

"cuz I been playing on the downbeat for too long...maybe the remedy is to fall into a song.." "when you hit the dirt & it fuckin hurt..." what a great line..!! Put a big smile on my face makes me want to sing with you... thankyou

This song is being a miracle to me.

I was traveling through different states, but I haven't been busking lately. I should get out again and busk. Lately I have been working on recording with other artists and booking gigs and living in Long Beach CA.

www.noahgrove.com is my homepage

Yes everyone sing! Just get on the upbeat! :-)

Hope you are well too! And thanks for listening and your friendly words!!

answering your curiosity
My natural state and the way I have been for years is down, glass half empty style. I am pretty good about not passing it on to anyone else, but right now almost every time I sing this song I go through a transformation. It really is deeply teaching me to be more consistently on the upbeat side of things.

upbeat
I know that feeling all too well... so glad you have discovered this with your song, such a gift! Music makes all the difference for me...i listen alot with headphones & something in music just puts your brain right! Very important what kindof music you(I) listen to(as the effect can be the other way round too). I had a period this spring where I just had to listen to crazy techno which I've never listened to before in my life & it got stuff out of my system & put my brain straight! Never thought that would happen! Haha... & different kinds of music at different times, but when you're low it's really important what you put into your brain & system : )

Upbeat
This song has a positive feel right from the beginning. I like it.

The vocal levels are a bit uneven in the beginning. It feels like you're moving back and forth in front of the microphone. Re-record the first two lines: the rest sounds fine.

Infectious opening. Like the lyrics and the positive message. Nice groove. Yes, this should work up very nicely into a quality song. Thanks.

I spent around 40-50 hours working on this piece now. It was a frustrating process but I think I came out with a good work!

I know how you feel
When a song stirs you, you want to get it out there ASAP. This is the place to do that. Thus far, this is a terrific tune.
