Description
1st of 10 "Off the cuff" songs (of which I only recorded 4) I wrote just before the great flood.
This one is different in style and tone than the other 3.
All I did was turn on a drum machine and played and sang what ever popped into my head. The finished song is lyrically different than the original but the structure and melody are basically the same.
1 guitar, bass and drums.

I used a few loops here and there (percussion).
1 small guitar loop on the 2nd chorus.

The song is played using "Pointless Picks" of course.

Lyrics
No one want's to be alone
You need someone to call your own
When your far far a way from home
don't want to be alone

no one wants to cry out loud
As for me well I know how
and you can put it down to being proud.
no one wants to cry out loud


You can say it's human nature
Well maybe your right
But no one cares what you call it when your feeling this way.
in the long lonely night.

No one wants to be alone
No one wants to be alone
Sometimes hermits on their hermit throne
They don't wanna be alone

Musical interlude

You can say it's human nature
Well maybe your right
But no one cares what you call it when your feeling this way.
in the long lonely night.

No one wants to be alone
Sittin by the telephone
so have a heart and call me here at home.
don't like be alone

Neat
For an off the cuff song this is pretty good. For a regularly written song too, come to think of it. Simple and charming: your guitar part does not go much beyond one chord, but maybe that's what gives it its flow.

Hey my comment is gone??!!??
Anyways....very fluid and impressive stream of consciousness improv. Cohesive delivery that comes off as natural....all of this with loads of strong melody.
Cheers mate!

Full
It has a very full sound. I think the vocals could be cleaned up a little more, but the backing is great. I enjoyed the delivery of lyrics as well.

I like the "off the cuff" concept
and you do it well. I like the lyrics a lot (I assume they're not "otc"?), and the minimal instrumentation works really well. Great vox, guitar, nice simple bass and drums - and hey, I think I've had that maracca player do some work on some of my tunes too :)

Nice track.
Great song for one recorded off the cuff or not. Nice structure and mix. Good job.

Dont wanna be alone
Strong easily relatable hook, well structured. Sort of reminds me of John Fogerty/Creedence. The gravelly vocals work well, as does the phrasing. A fun song!

The unique sound
of jibes! I think the production of this song is about the best one that I've heard of yours. I do believe that its my favorite so far as well. Plus I always love a good fade out ending. Good one man!

Thanks for sharing
So true the words are. Almost reminds me when I was in the Navy and had to go to Viet Nam and didn't have a girlfriend. This a good tune for those over seas and no one to really be friendly with with ! But it is good for so many! Of course I didn't have a telephone over nam :) But I guess a lot of servicemen have cell phones. At least I think so! Nice electric guitar sounds and like how it jibes with the drums. Nice ending too!

Cool tune
Your singing is so cool and expressive at the same time man. It reminds me of Velvet Underground somewhat. I liked the song almost immediately, perhaps because of its minimalist simplicity and the direct down to earth lyrics. Great songwriting, performance and tech quality. Everything sounds clear like crystal.

I Love your Voice
You have a very expressive vocal style. You don't seem overly concerned with range or precision. And I mean that as a compliment. Your emphasis seems to on be making sure the lyric comes across while retaining that "every-man" approach folks can relate to. You got style Neal.
