  1. Like this? The sad part about this is I'm old enough to remember these! 😋
  2. Just thought I'd ask......I haven't seen anything to at least to give us a clue to what's in store for Junes song contest. Thanks, Dominick/Moptop
  3. Gary and Paul, funny that you bring this up because I also got an email from SoundClown just like the one Gary got... Alyssa Chen Нeу there. Whаtsnew І'm going to shаre уоur trасk Table For Two to оur VіP nеtwоrks and musіc communіties. As а rеsult уоur trаck wіll reасh: ✔ 218 fоllоwers (аpрroх), 7170 interested lіstеners, 321 lіkеs n re-pоst, EХTRA Vіdео fоr yоur trасk. Cheсk out thе lіnk in my profіle hеаdеr picturе I thought it to be a robo mailer as well. I PM'ed the sender and didn't get a response either. Also it seems every time I post a new song to my SoundClod page I get an email for them stating that so and so liked my song and that I should go to their page and listen to their stuff. More robo mailing I'm sure. And Paul, I can assure you I haven't PAID for anything!!😁 Take care, Dominick

    Table for Two

    Thanks everyone for the kind words! After trading a lot... a lot, of tracks via email it finally came together. Hats off to Barbara for a great vocal performance, to Patty for such great lyrics, and to Gary for exceptional piano work and for his great production smarts that pulled it all together. It was an honor to be asked to work with such talented people. Take care, Dominick/Moptop
  6. What a breath of fresh air your song is!!! I listened to is several times. IMHO it's airplay ready. Thank you for sharing!

    May Song Contest

    Just a fun little Collaboration by Peko and Moptop. Never Gonna Be My Girl Lakamp/Giarraputo © Copyright 2018 V1 I love a girl who doesn’t love me back OK, she really does but it’s not like that She’s all I ever wanted but I gotta face the fact She’s never gonna be my girl Be my girl V2 1 The party doesn’t start until she gets there She’s never felt the need to play Solitaire If looks were dollar bills she’d be a billionaire And she’s never gonna be my girl Chorus 1 She always says I’m not the kind of guy for her She wants a man who loves her less I don’t understand it, but I must confess It’s part of her allure, I guess But I can’t help it, I love her to death And she’s never gonna be my girl Be my girl V3 Maybe it’s time for me to change my tune ‘Cause I don’t see anything happenin’ soon I’ve tried every angle, so it’s safe to assume She’s never gonna be my girl Bridge: I don’t wanna be her brother I don’t wanna be her friend I don’t wanna be her lover I just want this to end 2:00 Chorus 2 She always says I’m not the kind of guy for her She wants a man who loves her less The way it looks to me, she’s gonna get her wish I’m beginning to reassess I’m coming to my senses, I gotta face the fact She’s never gonna be my girl Be my girl She’s never gonna be my girl Be my girl

    Straighter Road

    Thanks everyone for your input on this one. Yes, it's still a work in progress. Yes, the total length needs a trim and I know the "show" and "living" are the weak spots in the entire lyrics and I've been trying to come up with something better but it is sure is hard to do when you already have it recorded and you have the "predetermined image" in your head already. Does that happen to anyone else? ...not being able to think of anything else because you've already heard song and it like blocks out any decent substitutions? Maybe I shouldn't have re-recorded it before I came up with something better. Kind of like putting the cart before the horse! Thanks for the helpful comments as always. Dominick

    Straighter Road

    Gary, that would be great! I would like to see if it could do anything to perk up my old tired voice. Thanks, I will do that. Dominick

    Straighter Road

    Gary. this was kind of a demo vocal really you are totally correct, good vocals sometimes elude me. I attribute that to 2 past throat surgeries. Although there were no complications the older I get...well I think you know the rest. Thanks for the input on this one. It sounds like I kind a got this one right. I think you have a great idea with guitar mirroring the chorus line. I am planning to recut the vocals and I'll see about adding in the guitar part as well. Thanks. As far as Barbs vocal, I did that in the key of "F#" for her. She tired it in "E" but said that it was a little to low for her. I would have just recut it in "G" but "F#" is what she requested. Thanks again for listen and the suggestions.

    Walkin Money

    Ron, thanks for the suggestions. Yes, I do agree with you, those two bars could be removed. Jim, it was real struggle in just figuring out what to put in there and where to put it. Oswlek, Well, uncommon is what we were going for here. Straight forward approach but still push the envelope a little. Thanks everyone for lending your knowledge and support. Dominick
  13. Here's is a project that I wrote and recorded about 10 years ago that I revived and re-recorded to give fresh, updated sound and to make a few lyric changes in. I know I've not been very active on the forum lately being busy with other projects but I hope you would hold that against me and give it a listen to and let me know you think. Take care, Moptop Straighter Road Words and music Dominick B. Giarraputo Copyright © 2009 V1 It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was still at home Surrounded by my family and my friends But then I heard a distant call one I knew I should ignore I turned my back and headed down this road Chorus Maybe there’s a straighter road that I should be traveling But there are no signs to show me the way Maybe there’s a better life that I should be living Then maybe I can fine my way back home V2 Many times I’ve made that vow To end my wandering ways And get back home to the one’s I love But then I hear that call again Much stronger than before I pack my bags and off I go again Bridge I should have listened long ago When I was told I could come back home But stubborn me just wouldn’t believe The road I was taking was wrong. V3 This road has all but ruined me I’m not the guy I used to be A young man in the prime of his days Cause now I’m gray and getting’ old With no one here to call my own I’m guess’n that’s the price I had to pay Chorus Maybe there’s a straighter road that I should be traveling But there are no signs to show me the way Maybe there’s a better life that I should be living Then maybe I can fine my way back home Chorus There’s got to be straighter road that I could be traveling But there are no signs to show me the way There’s got to be a better life that I could be living Then maybe I can fine my way back home Then maybe I can fine my way back home Then maybe I can fine my way back home
  14. Syl, incredible is kinda high up there but I'll sure give it a try! Thanks for you faith! Take care, Dominick
  15. Syl, Thanks for kind comments. I do have to agree with you on the vocal level. It didn't sound that loud but in listening to it after it was uploaded,,,yeah, it's a bit too much! I'll try to fix that in the next couple of days. It's just so nerve racking when you think you've got it as best you can and then it sounds totally different after you post it. Thanks again, Dominick
