Song Description

This is another collaboration with musical mastermind Ian Ritchie, great job Ian - the song is one that I wrote for my wife "Jeanie" and about my love for her - it's about marriage and tears and sniffles but mostly about love.

Liked the spacey vocal sound - Randall! Nice arrangement.

    - Nigel Barrett

oh man, where to begin. From a composition and structure standpoint its decent. but it is really hard to place any valuation on this song because the vocals were distorted so so so badly. Look not everyone is a great singer and there is no rule in music that you have to be a great singer to be able to make music. But the number one mistake bad and average singers make is this belief that adding a lot of reverb will somehow hide the fact that they are a mediocre singer. Do you realize that lyrically this might actually be a decent song but it is almost impossible to tell because the reverb is so over the top that at times its impossible to make out what the lyrics are. The music is all recorded decently and balanced so I know you can find a way to do it with a vocal track, you have that ability. The way I see it, if you are serious you have three options available to you. 1. You can find someone else to sing what you write. 2. Get the courage to sing yourself without all the ridiculous levels of reverb and find your voice to the point where you could be a songwriter for others. or 3. Change everything you do to the punk rock genre, because in that genre it is perfectly acceptable to intentionally sing badly and out of key. Understand I am not trying to be a jerk I am trying to help you. I speak for everyone here who does reviews. I would much rather a bad singer, sing badly but in a way I can understand the song and not be distracted by attempts to hide their singing, then to listen to that much reverb covering vocals. A level of reverb mind you that would be out of place in any song. By doing what you did you are forcing the listener to judge you solely on the performance and not on the composition and the lyrics that have been written, and that is not fair to you or the reviewer. I hope you understand that what I am saying is coming from a place of trying to be helpful, and not a place where I am trying to tear you down for no reason.

Lyrics

Jeanie why do you wonder about that dress tonight
Do you think that it looks alright, baby it's OK
Jeanie, why don't my words ever come out right, they never seem to come out right no matter what I say.

You know I'm always gonna love you, so wipe those tears away
You know I'm always gonna love you,
Forever and always
Forever and always

Jeanie, you ask me if I love you, you ask me if I love you well what can I say
Jeanie, you ask me just one time, you ask me just one more time, adding to my pain

You know I'm always gonna love you, you know I wouldn't change a thing
You know I'm always gonna love you,
Forever and always
Forever and always
Forever and always, Jeanie, Forever and Always
