I wrote this song back in February inspired by my 25th year anniversary as an employee in the same company.

And as always I intended to write lyrics. And as always I get stuck after 2 lines. I am just not a poet. I am a composer.

The idea of the song was some words like

Same place - 25 years
"Same place of joy and with fears
Lala la la la laaa
......
.... it was
Not so bad at all"

If one of you with more poetic genes want to write lyrics and/or sing it - I am always ready for a collab.

Image is from my reception at work. Yeah. Having a drink again.

I have the same problem with lyrics - I can usually get a title, but beyond that I'm hopeless!

Lovely piece, i really like the two different melody instruments you've used. Gorgeous melody, with a hint of Western in there.

This really makes me think of Jean-Michel Jarre's London Kid music, exactly the same guitar sound, I think you should check it out, amazing smiley Really nice piece, full of joy, nice use of midi guitar sounds, nicely recorded and mixed.

Marvelous, happy tune -- and yes, I can understand why you'd like to put some lyrics to this. Hopefully one of the talented writer/singers here on iComp will step up to the task! And congratulations on 25 years of service!

The song is quite upbeat and I could tell your 25 years tenure is not a bad one indeed. My longest tenure so far is 12 years with Digital (DEC) & Compaq combined (Compaq acquired Digital). Then Hewlett Packard bought Compaq but I didn't make it through the merger. From then onwards I shifted from jobs to jobs. Not that I wanted to but those companies either closed down or I was laid off............... and that wandering life lingers unfortunately.

Love the Harmonica intro, and the shift to slightly country. Nice crossover.

That is so strange, I know I wrote you a comment yesterday on this song, and now it's not here???

I'll try again. smiley .....I really like the guitar playing in this, has a relaxing effect on me. Find it gives this piece a 60's feel to it.

Very nice job on this, I enjoyed the listen, Kenneth. smiley

Ouch!

Another fine toe tapping and positive tune by you, Kenneth.
I was planning on being in a bad mood all day today.
But, on second thought, after hearing this; I can always be in a bad mood tomorrow.

Ya' think?

Great job!


Respect + Appreciation= MH2010~

Lovely upbeat tune and great musicianship.. What can you say about 25 years in a lyric? Probably best not to try too hard and write the first thing that comes to mind... Stream of consciousness
Great stuff!

I am glad this song turned out to be not so bad at all. Thanks for the fantastic comments.

I have been on business travel with a lot of preparation and follow up the past 2 weeks so I have been a bit away from the site. Today Sunday I will listen to all your great music and I look forward to it

Ah yes there are those wonderful melodies you always create. They seem to flow from you effortlessly. Love the twang to the gee-tar & the harmonica/synth sounds. Free-wheeling taking a long peaceful drive in the country feel. It's a beauty.

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