Song Description

This is about overcoming doubts and fears, being the best you can be. Every road musician has questioned whether or not the long journey is worth the pain, but in this case the storyteller realizes he's right where he needs to be, and celebrates his part in bringing music to life. Positive and uplifting with sing-along harmonies and melodic guitar lines reminiscent of The Allman Brothers.

Story Behind the Song

A song about life on the road as an under-appreciated musician, entertaining thoughts of hanging it up before moving forward triumphantly. This is about overcoming self-doubt, being the best you can be at what you do.

Very well written and well arranged piece which 99.99 percent of musicians can readily identify with. Really good instrumentation and arrangement.Guitar solo puts you very much to mind of the Allman Brothers.

    - MGB

Good solid commercial rock. The players are on the money. The vocals are strong. Clean production along the lines of some of the great southern California acts over the seventies and eighties!

Lyrics

Waiting for the curtains to open, let me be your music man tonight.
Trying so hard to be popular, let me be your music man tonight.
Superstars are just like magic - now you see them, now you don't.
I keep telling myself I'll give up but sure as hell I won't.

'Cause I'm a music man, a one-night stand.
Let me be your music man tonight.
None of you know me as I really am, only as your music man tonight.
The road can feel so tragic, surrounded but you're all alone.
I keep telling myself I'll give up but sure as hell I won't.

Superstars are just like magic - Now you see them, now you don't!
I keep telling myself I'll give up but sure as hell I won't.

Ohhho. Ohhho. Let me be your music man tonight.
Ohhho. Ohhho. Let me be your music man tonight.
Ohhho. Ohhho. Let me be your music man tonight.
Ohhho. Ohhho. Let me be your music man tonight.
Ohhho. Ohhho. Let me be your music man tonight.

Music Man Tonight

Classic Rock song about a road musician overcoming doubts and fears. He considers throwing in the towel, but realizes music is his life even if he's never going to find fame and fortune, so he celebrates the personal awakening. Think John Mayer meets The Allman Brothers with plenty of harmonies and a melodic sing-along refrain in this lyric video.
