Description : I wanted to write a song about walking down the street, which is something I do a fair amount of, and to capture the nonsense that runs through my head as I walk and how it tends toward the spiritual, as nonsense does, and to write a happy song for once. This is the result. It's the first song on the "Rising" album, vocals & guitar by the great Sunny War, on top of loops provided by this essential community. I made a music video of it yesterday which I couldn't wait to post this morning because I'm proud of it, I hope you check it out: https://youtu.be/Yr8s_MdWEnA

    Hey Citizen, Im loving this track, simple and effective and quality, yes oozes quality. The piano and the vocal dominate the track to perfection. You have created a little masterpiece here, its an instant classic. Did you make the video? I loved that too, PEOPLE watch the video!! Excellent work here my friend I am so glad I came across this and look forward to hearing more from you. Regards Paul.

    Thank you, Paul. I really appreciate your comments on the song and the video! The piano is a loop, so all hail looperman. Yes I made the video, using free public commons footage (a lot of amazing stuff available) and Windows Movie Maker, very simple to use and a free video is the result. So happy you like it!

    This takes me back to an era where simplicity was effective in songwriting. When a song can just be good without over producing. I'm glad I stumbled on to this. This is excellent!

    Right on. A la Jim Croce - was just thinking about him the other day and how he wrote some of the best songs ever (like "Time in a Bottle"), so simple, so beautiful. Sunny needs no pitch correction in her vocals, and her guitar work is on point every time. I'm glad you like simplicity as I do, and thank you for your comment!

    This is fantastic.
    You have a superb voice that reminds me of someone from years ago that I can't put my finger on.
    I think it needs a little more editing/mastering but I'm saying no more because this is way above my pay grade to be messing with.
    Beautiful song.

    Thank you! FYI, I started using LANDR online mastering and love the convenience and cost - $300 for unlimited mastering for a year, much better than the service I was using. If you're referring to a little zip that occurs, that's part of the guitar sound and I decided to leave it. If you're referring to something else in the mix, ah well - these tracks are probably locked down forever. There are definitely imperfections in the songs but I'm glad you respond to the overall sound. (I think there are lots of someones from the past in this sound...) Thank you!

    Thank you! Sunny War has a voice for the ages, and plays guitar like no other. What a pleasure it was to work with her! If you want more, all 55 of our songs are on thesunnysessions.com. Appreciate your comment!

    Sunny War is awesome. When I started working with her, she thought of herself as a guitar player, not a singer or a bass player. Now she's played bass on 55 of my tunes, so she's a bass player. And with all the positive looperman feedback I've shared with her on her vocals, she's got to feel like a pretty fine singer now. Thank you, and I will share with Sunny!

WALKING DOWN THE STREET

by Citizen Mofo

I got me a beat
So I’m gonna sing a song
I’m walking down the street
Moving right along

Gonna sing about walkin’
Walkin’ down the street
Gonna sing about talkin’
To the people that I meet

Gonna sing about the sidewalk
How it feels beneath my feet
You know it’s such a wide walk
And it’s made of concrete

Gonna sing about the sunlight
How it feels upon my face
Man you know it feels all right
Makes me kinda like this place

You know it feels all right
You know it feels all right

Gonna sing about the goofballs
How they love to goof around
Gonna sing about the pratfalls
How they’re always falling down

Gonna sing about the big guns
How they’re always blowing smoke
Gonna sing about the young ones
Until I finally get the joke

Gonna sing about my sisters
All the daughters and the mothers
Gonna sing about the misters
All the fathers and the brothers

Gonna sing about the children
How I love them most of all
Each one of them is a pilgrim
Who will rise before they fall
Who will rise before they fall
Who will rise before they fall
Who will rise before they fall
Who will rise before they fall

I got me a beat
So I’m gonna sing a song
I’m walking down the street
Moving right along

Gonna sing about walkin’
Walkin’ down the street
Gonna sing about talkin’
To the people that I meet

Description : Here's a song I created for you guys! Felt a spark of creativity last night and stayed up a bit to make this into a basic song. I provided the loops for the song if you'd like to restructure it! Real acoustic, percussion, claps and voices. No vocals but already structured for singing. Feel free to download and add vocals for non-commercial use :) Enjoy!

Description : Was trying out my new Fender electric guitar that was so generously given to me as a Christmas present from my oldest brother, and instantly fell in love with the tone! So much so that it inspired an entire night's worth of music. Instruments at work: Drums, Bass Guitar, Electric Guitar (x3), Acoustic Guitar, Pad, Tambourine. The bass is real this time (played by yours truly, pardon my amateur bass skills)!I hope you enjoy!

Description : Sometimes i forget that i'm not a pro-musician, not involved in some market logic. Sometimes i forget that my job is foundry worker. But i never forget that i got a soul,i am human. As human, i need to bring out my feelings, and that is easier for me when I make music. Something in lyrics and Baby's performance touched me deeply. Just turn your lighter on, wave it and enjoy.

Description : messed around on my piano, came up with a good idea, and put it in fl studio. I think it turned out pretty great. It would be awsome to get some vocals to this. if you do, feel free to change up the title or whatever. tempo is at 105 if ya need to know. review it and enjoy.

Description : This was my entry into a remix contest by Anna Yvette for her song "Stars and Moon." I don't enter a lot of remix contests and this song will give you an idea why, hahaha. A huge thanks to Anna Yvette for allowing people like me to really mess up her work. This one was a bit of a challenge due to the vocals already being mixed. Unfortunately, downloads are restricted on this one per her request. Thanks for listening.

Description : This one has been sitting on my computer for a bit now but didn't really like it. My friends say it can use some vocals and I think that is what this one needs. If there is anyone who wants to put some vocals on this, send me an email at .magic41151@yahoo.com. or post below. Thanks for tuning in and have a great day!
