Lyrics

Mostly Blue
Just aimless wandering
Since your "adieu"
Has left me ponderin'
My Waterloo
And feeling Mostly Blue

Same heartbreak
They named the hotel after
Cool handshake
Last kiss and final chapter
Huge earthquake
That's left me Mostly Blue

Friends tell me
I should savor
Some new exotic flavor
A little candy
To sweeten up my mood
I must admit to tryin'
Tasty morsels, while denyin'
I miss your warm and friendly soul food

Cloudy skies
The perfect cover
For these bloodshot eyes
I've cultivated
Longing for your sighs
While feelin' Mostly Blue

Friends tell me
I should savor
Some new exotic flavor
A little candy
To sweeten up my mood
I must admit to tryin'
Tasty morsels, while denyin'
I miss your hot and tangy, sexy soul food

If I knew
The way to get it back
To me and you
Somewhere to bivouac
And start anew
I'd have a rosy view
Instead of Mostly Blue

Really nice jazzy/blues vibe on this one, The laid-back groove and vocalist work really well together. The "dirty" guitar is a cool contrast to the smoothness that surrounds it. NIce changes throughout. Great job!

Definitely do a remix and experiment with the different sounds available to you now that you didn't have 20 years ago. I'd love to hear this remixed and remastered

Wow. Very strong song and performance. This clearly ain't this fellow's first rodeo. Ample harmonic, melodic and lyrical beauty and sophistication in evidence to disarm the toughest (fair-minded) critic. A compelling smooth jazz/bluesy rock mix that works very well indeed. Check it out!

Nice chord progression. Well written and arranged. Good guitar work, I like the choice of the chord voicings.

Great lyrics and feel overall.I see this song in a lounge scene, similar to in leaving Las Vegas the movie.

Excellent piece with tons of guitar work with loads of varied tones on different tones, including chorusy, standard jazz warm amp and a little overdrive to keep it interesting. The singer and the rest of the band tell a beautiful story as well. Definitely a must listen.

Don't know enough about this genre of music, to give appropriate rating.

I like this tune. Mose Allison or Michael Franks cool jazz influence. Lyrics setting a down low feel. Nice tune.
