Broadjam Member Reviews

Great sound, great voice. Love the percussion.

    - CodeSwitcher

Mesmeric, a bit hippy and an enjoyable and original lyric. This is one I could hear in something like 'Patriot' a series I really enjoyed. I liked the concept of basing the song around a single line (like the line of a kite) and thought you actually did a great job of holding attention for over 7 minutes in spite of my reservations (as detailed in the constructive comments)! I didn't think I'd manage to listen to the end of this, but I did. And enjoyed it too. Nice work!

"Kites In The County"

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Children come from behind the rocks
Music, come from behind the wind
The wind holds up the kites in the county
So, won?t ?cha
Come on, come on, come on, come on down

Tom?s kite is the highest above
Bob?s kite bears the symbol of love
Cathy?s kite is the most free in the sky
So, won?t ?cha
Come on, come on, come on, come on down

I?ve been informed that the baker is dead
And that the banker has gone and lost his head
I think it?s clear that we should rule instead
So, won?t ?cha
Come on, come on, come on, come on down

We?ve been here twenty minutes
Seems like a day
I?m alone on a string
Depending upon the wind
I?m relaxed but I feel I?m moving very slow
Am I? I don?t know
Am I? I don?t know
Am I? I don?t know

Now, come down, you can fly my kite
I built it in six hours last night
So that this wind could guide its virgin flight
So, won?t ?cha
Come on, come on, come on, come on down

There?s a blue one with a long tail
Alone, on a string, depending upon the wind
Climbing, falling, dancing and laughing
So, won?t ?cha
Come on, come on, come on, come on down
