Lyrics
Thinking of the night that's behind me
Dreaming 'bout a time called yesterday
When the firelight was low, the stars above us glowed
and we never cared to see the light of day

Never knew the depth of my devotion
Never looked within myself at all
But the moon is shinning bright, on a quiet lonely night,
The sound of teardrops echo down the hall

-CHORUS-
The dark of the night is my emotion
A glimpse into what's really down below
As the night slips away, face another day
Trying not to let my feelings show

You always said I couldn't live without you
I never thought I'd have to try so soon
But the cool summer breeze, that whispers through the trees
tells me I'm alone under the moon

-CHORUS-

Somewhere in the dark I know you're out there
Trying hard to let your feelings go
It brings you to your knees, the distant memories
In the night the coldest wind will blow

-CHORUS- X2

We actually were an online band at one time.
We called ourselves "The Hilarious Chickens". We did 3 or 4 songs toward a cd and then it faded away. Thanks.

All Right Freddy
Killer track you guys have put together here, I love it. Excellent music, great lyrics and ya done good holding it all together with Steve's vocals and those very well done harmony parts.

Outstanding work from all on this one that's for sure.

Great track! How do you manage to get so much accomplished? I like the accordian ... gives it that cajun feel. Great guitar sound. Diggin' the whole mix. Vocals and harmonies well done and just a real good melody. This tune is totally pro!!

Ummmm
One thing is that I am retired Stan. I retired so I could spend my time making music. Another thing I do is I use an online projects list to keep track of my "in process" projects. I have a listing of about 90 projects right now. 10 or so of them have recently been finished, so you can drop that down to about 80 "in process". Some of them have been sitting around for years waiting to finish. I've been doing online collabs since 1998, so that's a long time to be accumulating tracks/projects. I have a huge archive of finished and unfinished tracks. I'm slowly posting them here and updating my jukebox on my googlesite. This site is THE most organized way of collabing IMHO. It's where I do all of my actual work, and it keeps track of my projects and keeps them online too for browsing. I recommend it to any songwriter/producer who has tons of projects going and needs the organization. I've been trying to tell people about using this system. It's free and easy (if you don't have an attention deficit). http://fjam.zapto.org

Thanks for liking the track Stan. That means a lot to me coming from a man of you talent and stature. I'm in awe of you and it feels good when you like something I was involved in.

drakonis said 2253 days ago (July 22nd, 2011)
lots of energy
Great mix, and so sweet to have the vox up front there. I must say though, that the synth in the background is really distracting for me, it seems to just add a steely hiss through the main verses, and doesn't seem to add anything, just detracts from the cool accordian and makes things too "busy". This is a great piece of music, wonderfully performed, so I hope it is OK if I offer a small subjective critique.
ttfn,
Drakonis

The keyboardist
was a heavy rocker, and hated playing the accordion. He was the first to leave the band. I guess anyone who likes the zydeco style bluesy rock type stuff liked the accordion (like me). I thought it added a lot of character. It's funny how egos go along with talent... Thanks Char.

Really strong post!
The Hilarious Chickens! LOL! Wonderful intro with the accordion adding a nice Cajun flavour. Steve's country rock vocals are great and the harmonies are really smooth, Freddy. The whole gang is in fine form with the guitars really true to style. Really strong post! D/L. Regards, Peter.

Good song crafting. Cool hook in the right place on top of a melodic rise. I like the zydeco feel which I can't recall hearing around MJ at all. Strong parts, excellent arrangement, good vocal. Nice mix.

Night ,now she wants a tambourine.....sounds good to me)....and I have been converted to piano accordion and love the sound .........Great song here guys ,really get the...(hang on just starting it again) zydeco sound at the beginning and then the swampy rock and roll overtakes .....but the accordion fights back....two falls to a pin down and a fall Love it
