Milky Way

Story Behind The Song

As a writer I challenge myself to write about many things, this song was one of those exercises. On my way to the Milky Way with a rainbow on my shoulder, came to me one afternoon ... and I sat down and wrote the song. I like writing in many different styles and genres.

MilkyWay ©2011 Janet Steely

CH:
la la la la la la la la la
skippin over clover
On my way to the MilkyWay
With a rainbow on my shoulder.

V1:
When I think about you
When I see you smile
When I look into your eyes
My heart can fly beyond the skies

CH:
la la la la la la la la la
skippin over clover
On my way to the MilkyWay
With a rainbow on my shoulder.

V2:
Sunshine on my pillow
Moondust in my hair
Twinkling nights of stary skies
When I'm with you how time does fly ...

CH:
la la la la la la la la la
skippin over clover
On my way to the MilkyWay
With a rainbow on my shoulder.

Bridge:
Last night I dreamed that I could fly. Stand on my toes and touch the sky

CH:( start fading final chorus at third line as though flying away)
la la la la la la la la la
skippin over clover
On my way to the MilkyWay
With a rainbow on my shoulders.

On My way to the MilkyWay

High energy song, very fun to listen to. I really like the punch in the vocal, grabs the listener from the get go. Excellent instrumentation, simple, but excellent production. VERY catch hook. Love the La La La (there was a licensing opportunity looking for La La songs, wonder if you entered this, it might be good for that). I really like the lyric "Rainbow on my shoulder". I would definitely go to hear you at a festival! Great guitar work! Clear as a bell vocal, understood EVERY word. (high compliment in broadjam)

Nice voice with this song, you made want to sing with you and I did second time around toes tapping with the rest of me. Nice ketch tune 3xI listened

nice happy tune with some minor chords...LOL...the vocal is nice

Really Bouncy and positive feel to it. Instant head bopping, and foot stomping. Keep on this one...

Clear as a Starry Sky, and and beat that pulls you along.

Best song I've heard today. Love that happy upbeat tempo and excellent excellent vocals. OMG a "double rainbow" of a song!
My favorite part was the little break and then kick it up a notch!
