Description
A special thanks to Terry (paralax) and Alan (apb) for coaxing an unfinished song to life. The song has been on the hard drive for quite some time and was passed around like fruit cake at a Christmas party. I think the tune turned out to be something pretty special and I'm excited to present it to you for your listening pleasure.

Terry wrote most of the lyrics and the vocal melody, I threw in some extra ideas.
Alan recreated the intro and contributed some of the keyboard parts.
The rest are as follows...

Vocals and Guitar Paralax
Keyboard APB
Guitar, Bass/Drum Arrangement and Keys FEEL

Thanks for taking the time to listen.

Lyrics
No goodbyes

Kicking back in my fast car
I’ve got the pedal to the floor
The engines running hot
With my phone in one hand
And the other on the wheel

And if I text you now
I'll put my life on the line
Or end up doing some time
Because it takes just a second
For a life to be killed
With no goodbyes

I hear the tone someone's on the phone
I'm punching on the keys
and slowing in the street
with one eye on the screen
And the other on the road

And if I text you now
I'll drive my car on the line
Or end up running a light
Because living's more important
Than to die behind the wheel
With no goodbyes

Kicking back in my fast car
I’ve got the pedal to the floor
The engines running hot
With my phone in one hand
And the other on the wheel

And if I text you now
I'll drive my car on the line
Or end up running a light
Because living's more important
Than to die behind the wheel

With no goodbyes
With no goodbyes
With no goodbyes

Thanks for checking back on the results. I had my doubts the song would have made it this far.

Man...
John, APB, & Paralax:

You guys are pressing into rarified recording air here. This is just plain excellent rock. Top tier, in my book. Love the lyrics and the pro vox, e.g.

And if I text you now
I'll drive my car on the line
Or end up running a light
Because living's more important
Than to die behind the wheel
With no goodbyes

That is just good writing when it comes to R&R.

Cool instrumental break in the middle, a piece of gold all by itself that is in a song that is a pocket full of gold.

I appreciate you taking a listen. The results came out better than I had imagined. A lot of stuff for 4 and a 1/2 minutes, still Alan contemplated backup vocals and playing some real bass.

Terry shined
Especially if you take into count that he's been recovering from an injury which consisted of a fractured shoulder, gash on his head and surgery to have a rod and screw placed in his leg. What a true friend. Thanks for dropping by and for the nice comments.

Driver's ed
I was about to express my outrage at the photo (heh), but then I started reading the lyrics. So, OK, you're already there. Such a full sound. Must have been a bear to manage all that. Sounds good. Good tune and performances, too! Enjoyed.

Really it wasn't that bad
A lot going on but it built up slowly so I had plenty of time to mix everything. There were about 4 masters after all the trickling down, arranging, placing and taking things out of the mix. Special thanks to the collaborators, one recovering from an injury the other busy with work and limited time. Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

No goodbyes
Topical lyrics wrapped up in a full-on arrangement. The guitar work is upfront and creative and the synths and drums/bass give the song variety and solidity. Quality collaboration. Thanks, Peter.

Wasn't sure
If the composition was going to make it this far. I had tried to farm this out to various people who thought the tune was catchy but after a while I would get polite emails stating that there were no ideas to contribute. Alan and Terry had the "juice" to step this project up from where it dwelled. Thanks so much for dropping by and listening.

No goodbyes
I love the crunchy guitar, and the way you use a cleaner guitar riff against it - the two (which become three) work well together. The topic is a good one. It's amazing how many think they're invincible behind a wheel. Solid drums keep things together. Variety in the arrangement. Impressive work!

Thanks for dropping by and commenting. I remember I was riding with a coworker once and he was texting to his daughter while driving. I thought for sure I was going to die that day. I insisted that he stop but he kept on doing it. A law just passed in my town that texting and driving is against the law. I don't know how they are going to enforce it but at least it's a step in the right direction. Too bad the governor of our state doesn't feel the same.

Bravo
This was just right guys; thank you so much for putting into musical form a subject that irritates the hell out of me. Actually, I'm rather sick of looking at what I call "Pod People" (you know, the ones that walk down the street not looking where they are going because they are looking at their iPods, wherein, they walk against the light and get run over by another person staring into theirs). These instruments, we didn't need them before and I wonder how these people survived before them. Enough of my palavering--this is an excellent work and one that should be playing on the air all over (not just as a message, but as a damned good piece of music!) Thanks again and kudos all round for this. Michael

Feelings mutual
Thanks Michael I appreciate your input, always welcome to read your experiences. There was a study that found driving while texting is more dangerous than driving under the influence. It was pointed out that drunks are more likely to pay attention to the road and try to manage their way home without getting pulled over by the authorities.

Cool tune. Some really nice keys and they integrate well with the tasteful rhythm guitar. Lead is smoking. I don't understand the cachet of texting although I do it occasionally. It's expensive email on a bad keyboard lol.
