    Just to add a few degrees to this sultry night, with the soulful sound of my saxophone, from out of my fifth-floor apartment window......located right by the old Chesterfield sign. You know the one, with that blinking light that just never seems to buzz out.

    Best opening line to a song

    "I deal with the loneliness, like combing fresh cut hair.....I convince myself that I'm all right!".............."All By Myself", IronKnee ๐Ÿ˜Š -Tom

    Hey there Murph.............It's a great song! Now, how to make it better depends on the people working on it, and what you want to do with this. Working on a song is like painting a work of art. It always depends on the moment in time. Inspiration is the best guide!! I think your wife is right. I like what you have! ๐Ÿ˜Ž -Tom

    The Meanest Man of All

    Hey there SOK..........loved the song......the melody is awesome as well as the music. I found the lyrics highly entertaining and gratifying, but, "the meanest man is bound for prison" line just wasn't so convincing. just maybe, the meanest man of all is bound for hell......maybe๐Ÿ˜‹ Anyways.....a real cool song. Loved the instrumentals, as well!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž-Tom

    I Was The One

    Hey there Chaz.........what a great song!! I love the production and all of the performances. Your voice is fine (believe me). This is really good. A joy to listen to. I'd like to get a download of this ๐Ÿ˜Ž Awesome sound -Tom

    His Eyes

    Hi Chaz...thanks for listening and commenting๐Ÿ˜Š Although I do hear a tambourine, a violin, and some light keys, I'm not sure about a full production. Thanks for the very generous words of encouragement. I really appreciate them ๐Ÿ˜Š And as far as cat skinning.....who knows? I surely don't the many ways ๐Ÿ˜Ž Hi Patty.....not so complicated; but maybe, a bit too poetic. ๐Ÿ˜Š Will there be another? (and so, asks our hero) Well if there is Iโ€™ll know if itโ€™s His eyes she searches for ( Next time......with hind sight; and all, he (thinks) he will know if it is he, or someone else, that she is searching for. You see, our sad hero missed all the signs. She was only interested in himself as a friend......not, as a lover, a husband, or the father of her children). Thanks for listening....and thanks so much for allowing me to clarify. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Hi Jim..Thanks for listening and commenting!! This wasn't meant to be a "story'; but, a "snapshot" of a singular moment in time.....the emotions of angst, envy, loss and sorrow. Imagine being completely smitten by the woman in the avatar pic I posted with the song ๐Ÿ˜Ž Thanks, man!!! And thanks to all who have listened!! -Tom

  8. Hi Everyone........I would love to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly........all thoughts are welcome and first impressions are most welcome!! Thanks๐Ÿ˜Ž "His Eyes" Words & Music By Tom Tognaci https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13776249 How could I so blunder? There she is in love with him Instead of loving me But is it any wonder? There he stands in all his fineness Then take a look at me But Iโ€™ll never forget her Even though sheโ€™s over me The way she looks into his eyes Sheโ€™s found what she just couldnโ€™t find in me ~ Instrumental ~ No, Iโ€™ll never forget her And the way she passed me by The way she looked into my eyes I never knew she meant it as goodbye Will there be another? Well if there is Iโ€™ll know if itโ€™s His eyes she searches for

    The S - A Burden On Me....A great recording...a great write.....beautiful, all around..........I couldn't help but to hear Billy Joel's "Piano Man" in the hook, however....and a great performance, as usual!! Donnie - When Daddyโ€™s Drinking....A very nice folk/country song.....a bit repetitive.....but, some very nice sentiment, and an important topic for today! Moso - Say You Wanna Be With Me...a nice, uplifting instrumental hook (good stuff)...the vocals are too weak, needs to be more assertive.......a good melody....a good song, needs a bit more change-up to be really catching.....some great ideas! fabkebab - doings and beings....Love the play on words.....very good concept!! Always a solid writer and performer. I appreciate the way you are always striving to come up with something ( anything) different. Kudos!! ScenesFromPalacio - Swimming....Like the guitar playing, very different, dictated the emotion, even.....the melody was strong; but, a bit monotonous.......the lyric was subtle, but had a "human" element that was pretty cool. I mean, the angst was there, but there was a confusion about it that made it real, for me.......neat! And always a great performance!! Boy frevm - Runnin....NOT A 1+1...๐Ÿ˜‹........SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAD A BIT OF FUN, HOWEVER!! RoadDog - Bombs Away...... I loved the lyric,lots of cool imagery. And I liked the whole of the song.....Great ideas, man....gotta work on your performances and recordings!!๐Ÿ˜Ž discatticus - The Price I Pay...A very nice write, all around....Good performance, and production......Good stuff! GocartMoz - The Dream...A great write, a bit depressing, never-the-less๐Ÿ˜‰ A solid production and solid performances, I do think that a program that plays the piano is "not natural". Which makes me wonder with how much of anything a person does, in terms of musicianship, is real. ๐Ÿ˜จ Joan - Down from the Trees...Listened to this one a few times......I really like the craftmanship of this, great Lyric/melody/performance relationship. I'm not sure as to weather you started out writing about Adam & Eve, and diverged; or, was lyrically paralleling the Bible. Maybe you were writing about the vague period when Neanderthal met Cro-Magnon....?? Anyways....I really enjoyed the story and the write!! lyD - Always You..........Always very somber, and heart-felt. Others agreed, as well!!๐Ÿ˜Ž Very good writing and performing....keeps everyone always interested. Good, good stuff! PaulCanuck - Uber Love...Great song!!! The guitar part was creative, but needed a production to make this the hook you wanted, (I think), You did a stellar job with pulling it off, however. I have songs like this, where it takes a production to bring things to full bloom...I think this is one of those. A great testament to your writing and performing. A really neat piece of writing, Paul!! Ironknee - His Eyes.....A song that is really different for me; in that, it is gender indifferent (easily able to convert).........a super fun guitar, with a melody that sounds absolutely awesome when whistled in a steam bath sauna ๐Ÿ˜Ž Remember all....these are just first impressions; and are, in no way, meant to reflective the deep thinking and reasonable opinions of my better me ๐Ÿ˜Š -Tom And thanks to all.......once again!!

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ๐Ÿ˜€ And congrats to Paul and David, as well. Thanks to all the non-contestant voters, to Murphster, and to all the participants. I always enjoy writing and playing; and, all my songs are personal. "His Eyes" is one of my very favorite writes. And so I say, thank you, once more! I had to check-in, of course๐Ÿ˜.....but, I am in the middle of a project that keeps me up vey late.....and gets me up very early. I don't have the time to comment on all of the songs, just yet..........after this weekend, for sure!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž-Tom
  11. This is really good.......same good songwriting, as expected....... but, the recording quality and band performances are fantastic. You are at your very best, here! Good stuff! -T

    The saddest number ones ever...

    With all that said and done..........If I could not understand the English language, and merely listened to, "First Time...." without the benefit of the lyric, I would, in fact, be lead to think it was a very sad song. Interesting.
