Love Overwhelms Me (Ritchie/Dunkle/Selsky)

Story Behind The Song

This is a collaboration that I've done with two musical masterminds Ian Ritchie and George Selsky on Ian's song "Love Overwhelms Me. The song is about an alcoholic who has lost his wife and children and prays to God for His help, he has 99 bottles of whiskey that he pours down the drain and while he empties the bottles he prays that the Lord will put him back with his wife and family.

Lyrics

Broken down, all alone
This whiskey don't do it no more
My heart is broken, I feel so lost
Lord I can't do this no more

99,98,97,96,95,94,93

As I pour this bottle down the drain
As I pour these bottles down the drain
Your Love Overwhelms me Lord above
Your Love Overwhelms me

92,91,90,89,88,87,86,85

Lord put us back, Lord put us back,
Lord put us back, back again

Your Love Overwhelms me Lord above
Your Love Overwhelms me
When I look out at this ocean blue
Your Love Overwhelms me

Help me to change

Strong start, very interesting opening. The guitar tones are awesome and such a huge sound! I think the instrumental version of this could easily find its way into film/tv in the right setting. This is a super-intriguing piece overall.

Liked the music and lead guitar .

Great recording and great layering of the instrumentation. The song sounds very majestic and sonic. Pink Floyd vibe I got. The lead guitar playing is just great. Overall sounds like a very polished and tight song, that is complex and not your standard arrangement. I liked the unique arrangement. It keeps the listener on their toes. Good job.

Be sure to have a version available with no lyrics, very marketable rock anthem!
