Sometimes, you write a song and then... you move quickly to the next song, lol. Here's what happened.
I got a 1970's Yamaha CP25 electric piano from Goodwill this past summer. I also got a 1970's Roland RS-202 String Synth off Craigslist. I am not a piano player, but have been having fun writing songs on them lately, so early in FAWM, I went on the CP25 and came up with this. I added the RS-202 Strings and you know what? I apparently time traveled because I came up with an authentic 1970's easy listening Yacht rock soft and sweet song. I was not actually a fan, but I'd actually written a song on piano which is rare, so I kept going and decided to FAWM it to the end. I showed it to a couple people, but you know what? I don't even think I like it very much. BUT, it is true to form and sounds pretty authentic to me, so there you go.
Who wants to be my Michael McDonald? My Air Supply? My Christopher Cross? My Steely Dan? My Little River Band?!?!!!
Come on - I want to see how many ways this song can go.
Please - record something to this song. I would LOVE to hear what you come up with.
If you come up with anything, please don't mark me as a collaborator, but please DO tag the song with #yacht
