This time a melodic easy listening song, for piano, string orchestra, harp, acoustic and electric guitars.

The plan is later to make a vocal version. I still only have a few lines written starting with

"When I'm looking back on my life, I have no regrets".

I see an older man singing this looking back on his life, thinking about how good it has been even though there has been difficult times and things were not always easy.

A lovely lilting melody .... nostalgic and a little sad.
Some nice chord changes and an arrangement that sweeps the tune along!
Really enjoyable smiley

Yes this can be a very good vocal, Even some long Ahhhs and Ohhhhs, I can hear a Country arrangement or a Jazz ballad particularly with this progression. Excellent use of the repetitive motif with variation into different chords. This is why you can always come up with a beautiful melody. You have a technical grasp on melody that would make many - even most - other melody writers sound like a kindergarten finger painting would look beside a Monet.

Very Well Done.

A lovely sentiment to express in a song, and this has such a nice upbeat feel to it - not in the least sad or regretful. You have some wonderful chords in here, too, which because they are used sparingly against the restful backdrop of the rest of the song really add a nice oomph of unexpectedness. I shall look forward to hearing a vocal version, too!

Returning home. Feels like going down the road to the house you grew up in. Down home nostalgic charm for sure. This fits the 'subject matter' of the title & lyrics you are working on very well indeed. Wonderful blending of styles, flavors & spices. You are a master of melody. Graceful peacefulness.

Thanks for sharing with us; masterful original composition, vision, performance & production.

This has a nice south american feel to it. Chris has perfectly said what I was feeling too, nostalgia without sadness, quite back to sources, to that innocent youth, to that time when we were full of hopes and utopias smiley Wonderful listen Kenneth, these melodies are so beautiful. Will listen to it again when the house will be quiet smiley

Very atmospheric and cultured, I can hear many things in it from country style to even Mozart in parts. In contemporary terms though and overall I am reminded of the great great Charlie Rich who also covered a wide field of styles with his gentle piano.

Well balanced and lovely smooth and clear production with great symmetry in the structure.

Very pretty laid back sounds. Not enough of this on Icomp as for I'm concerned. Kind of makes me go back to Jerry Kramer the fine country pianist. Love it when I can go back think of some of my fav country hits and bring it into the present. Lots of stuff going on here and all in a good way, Love that Dobro sound and so much more !!!!!
Way to go !

Kenneth,, I loved this song and arrangement... I can only imagine the words with it. That looking back is such a great part of life. I makes it seem very long, and also very short,,, The lyrics could express that. And, the way we touch one another, and although living separate lives we share many of the same experiences.

BRAVO!!

Beautiful song and the vocal version is certainly something to look forward to. An excellent blend of instruments providing a wide room for reminiscence. I, unfortunately have a few regrets in my life and am definitely not one who could complete this song complacently. An enjoyable but moody listen for me today. Thanks so much for sharing this great composition.

Cheers / Mike

Nice composition. Very enjoyable listen. It sounds good as an instrumental with a rich and engaging arrangement. It sounds like a theme song for a TV series- from times when life was simpler. The arrangement of the intro and the B section contributes largely to that character. The tune has good potential for a vocal song. The verses lends them self very well to country style story telling. The melody is easy to sing and can be done by many vocal styles from an elderly Bob Dylan to Stevie Wonder to Justin Bieber(?). I like the feeling of the B section. The large range might be a challenge and the transition back to the verse is where you can win the trophy by an ingenious link between lyric, voice, arrangement and melody. I wish I could write lyrics, In this song I could tell about all things I wanted to, but did not dare, here I could tell it did happen and I don't regret. Wish you and others good luck with it!

Melancholy is a sweet emotion and you strike the chords perfectly here. Sadness mixed with happiness but no regrets. Get Neil Sedaka to sing on it. PERFECT!

I have been away on vacation in France the past 2 weeks so this is why I have been very little visible and why this thank you comes a bit late.

Thanks to all of you for your sweet and encouraging comments. It warms my heart. I am far from having lyrics for this yet. If someone feels like giving it a stab a collab is always something I will be ready for. I will try and catch up with your songs the next days.

I made this on my own, check if it fits to this song! Well I have sang it some time and well it does fit.

When I look back to my life, I have no regrets
When I look back to my life, I have no mistakes

When I look back to my life, I have no regrets
When I look back to my life, I have no mistakes
When I look back to my life, I remember what I done
When I look back to my life, I know everything that's mine

But why now I'm sad, remembering how life at the past was better
Nostalgic memories, saddened me later

When I look back to my life, I lived happily
When I look back to my life, the sun shines bright in the sky
So When I look back to my life, I have no regrets
When I look back to my life, I have no mistakes

But why now I'm sad, having diseases for the old
Life changed to sleep and mad, it may harden my life too cold

When I look back to my life, I have no regrets
When I look back to my life, I have no mistakes
When I look back to my life, I remember what I done
When I look back to my life, I know everything that's mine

But why now I'm sad, remembering how life at the past was better
Life changed to sleep and mad, it may harden my life too cold

When I look back to my life, I lived happily
When I look back to my life, the sun shines bright in the sky
When I'm looking back on my life
It was better and nice
