    Not sure how I missed this one but yeah it's a great song and excellent performance all round. How many vox tracks you layering? More than one anyway but it sounds really tight. You're a very good song writer you know....

    Thanks a lot Chris! :) I'm having so much fun writing and sometimes I go back and think "did I do that"? :D
    Regarding the vox layering, what I usually do is one lead and 2 background at roughly -10dB, spread over say 10L/10R. I did that in the beginning to give my vocal some "body" but u less the vocals line up it can also add chaos I don't need. So right now I'm trying to learn how to do that properly - that includes some quantizing, and I also add a gate to get rid of some of it.
    Anyway, let me know if you have any tips on that.
    Thanks so much for listening and commenting!!

    This is one of the catchiest tunes I've ever heard here on the Loop. I can tell from listening to your tracks, that you have come up with a way of writing that fits your voice as well as establishing an identity. You have a distinct vocal sound. If I hear one of your songs on the radio, I would know it's you. great sound. PEACE. T576 OUT.

    Thanks a lot man, that means a lot. I fixed a couple more things, extended the section after the bridge (which is probably the funkiest part) and added some subtle horns at the end. So far it also seems to be a winner on youtube - I rarely get 20 views the first day :D

    See if you like the final version: https://youtu.be/hCoeOg1lVk4

    good idea Bao, but seems piano is better to start with a verse or after verse

    That was a great comment Ruslan. I applied it and I think it's much stronger now!

    Yeah I abandoned this one a bit early but it's a much more serious song and actually I really like it, so I should give it a bit of a touch up :)

    Baobou...je loopt achter lol
    Avro's toppop bestaat sinds 1988 niet meer maar ik schrijf je wel in voor MTV .
    Wel een beetje bij blijven hoor hihihi

    Hahaha ja ik ben al een tijdje weg uit NL en kijk ook niet zo veel TV, maar ik had wel het gevoel dat zowel de Avro als Toppop niet meer bestonden... ik ben verbaasd dat Ad Visser nog leeft ;)
    Doet MTV nog muziek? Ik dacht dat die voornamelijk MTV Cribs en Jersey Shore deden :D
    Anyway, nee, TV gaat het niet worden, maar als ik nou wereldberoemd op Looperman ben... dan is dat ook mooi ;)

    Great track - good production, beautiful guitar, nice piano, well written and superbly structured and an absolutely stellar vocal performance to boot. For a 'loungeroom' track I have to say this sounds very FM radio friendly. Congratulations : )

    Wow, great words Ian! I need to polish it up a bit (theSINGLOT below had a great point) but yeah... it's slowly getting better. Thanks also to you and so many other fantastic people here. Looperman RULEZ!!

    Wat je allemaal kan doen in de woonkamer he? hahaha.
    Je hebt weer goed je best gedaan en weer iets moois geproduceerd meneer Baobou.
    Het is toch waanzinnig dat je je eigen tracks kan maken incl zang.

    Dank je wel Rita! Ja ik ben een enorme bofkont dat ik de mogelijkheid heb en dat het er dan (na een paar jaar oefenen ;) ook uitkomt. Ik merk ook echt dat ik drum en zang en productie lessen heb gehad, ik voel dat ik elke dag een beetje groei :)

    Hou je vast, op mn 60e kom ik nog in Avro's toppop ;)

    I really liked your new theme.
    If you allow me an observation, I personally would lower the piano a bit, at least when your voice is there.

    I hope you don't mind but I have allowed myself the pleasure of remastering it, you'll tell me how it sounds.

    greetings

    With this song you have the feeling of sitting in a club and completely surrendering to the beat of the music. Tell me: is your living room a jazz and blues club? If so, what is the entrance fee? *smile. Good song, well done. Greetings Manuela

    Hey BB, this is nailing it man. I have spent some time listening to jeff beck since his passing, and damn this coulda been an orange album track.
    The singing and playing create a vibrant, immediate connection. As the others said here, you are taking it to another level. It is going on 5am here and i tell you, you just made my day.

    That's great man, thanks to hear that! Go to bed/hope you have a great day :)

    Being compared to Jeff Beck is huge of course, but making you smile is even better!

    BaoBou!! Lately, you have been in the zone!!! What have you been adding to your coffee? LOL. Another great track! I love the piano intro. For a second I thought you were bringing us to church! Your vocals are in the pocket, and it seems you are using less layering (to my ears anyways), and that is also a good thing. I think you have struck a nice balance. I hear the lyrics clearly, as well as your vocal work. The fade out is a very smart touch. Call me old-fashioned, but there is nothing sweeter than a fade out. I'd sing this at an outdoor venue without hesitation...it's just that good! Well done!

    LovePeace&Light,

    First of all, if you would actually want to sing this, that would be a huge honour and I'd be delighted. I'd love to see/hear that too :)

    Yeah I can hear how this would sound with a gospel choir and man, that would totally be awesome. Maybe I can in fact add some more layering to the chorus. I was already thinking to add some brass, but my poor laptop was already struggling with just the tracks this has, so I'll need to use some trickery for that. First I need to improve the vocals a bit more.

    And yes I've listened well to you and others who gave advice about lyrics/phrasing (hi Ruben). It takes time for information to sink into my thick skull, but in the end I do listen :)

    THANKS buddy!

    Hey Erick.
    I have run out of good words to say to you.
    Please Help I'm in agony each time you come up with a gem like this, for you it is an everyday recurrence.
    Great job as usual Budd.

    Thanks so much Majid. I appreciate the kind words and it's good to have a fan :)
    I feel I've been on a roll since the EP. I want to collect tracks for a longer album and I already have more than I need, so that's a good feeling I have to say :)

Description : This is a kind of funk-disco-big band number that will make you think of the 70s and 80s, if you're old enough. It has all those vintage sounds so popular in this genre. I tried to maintain the sounds of the time while still enabling some updating. Even if you had never liked disco, give this one a try. It may surprise you.
