Hi all.  So happy my wirters block is over.  Songs are coming faster than I know what to do with them!  Wonderful!!!  lol

 

This tune was 95% written in 2 ours last week...it's a meld of styles and I even ventured to do a rap and trade off vocals with my amazing friend Savion.

 

Anyway, hope you like!!!

 

Let's Get Together
 
Verse 1
 
(Savion)
I wanna live in a world
where the kids are safe
and they can play in the sunshine
I wanna walk outside
and I wanna breathe 
 
(Clint)
and I wanna feel right
And I wanna know
that all my rights
are also your rights
 
(Savion)
And I wanna know that when I'm gone
everything will be fine
 
Chorus
 
That's what I want
Let's get together
That's what I want
Can we get together
That's what I want
 
Dance Beat
Hip-Hop
R&B
With a little Rock
C'mon
It's now or never
Let's get together
 
Verse 2
 
(Clint)
I wanna live in a place
where everything
is all the same 
for everyone
 
Where all the things
that life will bring
are not based on where you're from
 
(Savion)
And I want you to care
where I'm goin'
And not where I've been
 
(Clint)
And know that the color of my skin
and the color of your skin  
doesn't matter one single bit
 
Chorus
 
(Savion)
Let's get together
That's what I want
Can we get together
That's what I want
Dance Beat
Hip-Hop
R&B
With a little Rock
C'mon
It's now or never
Let's get together
 
Break
 
(Savion)
(Beat-Box)
Alright
 
Rap
 
(Clint)
Sop it up like a  big ol' plate of  biscuits and gravy
Changin' lives like them boys from the Texas Navy (HOOK'EM!)
See I'm tired wishin' 
Now I'm on mission 
Sit down and listen 
If you Sittin' in your kitchen and your watchin' 
'bout the injustice and plight
On the news at night
But because it don't pertain to your daily life 
You don't care if they solve 'em
Then you're part of the problem!
 
Chorus
 
(All)
Let's get together
That's what I want
Can we get together
That's what I want
 
(Clint)
Dance Beat
Hip-Hop
 
(Savion)
R&B
With a little Rock
C'mon
It's now or never
 
(Clint)
Let's get together

Nice beat rap was pretty good too.  Not a fan of the injustice line -doesn't seem to fit if the message is let's get together.  Who is Savion?

Hey! That's a great great track. Enjoyed lots. 

Awesome to hear some positive lyrics as well.

 

One thing I would say is that the lyrics lack in edge.

The message is there and the words are well put to convey that.

However after hearing it, I don't feel like I've learnt anything. 

We all want peace and want people to just get along but what does that mean?

Although giving too much edge could also harm your song as it is a positive, easy going song. 

Quite a subjective one but from my taste, it lacked in a bit of depth.

 

All that being said great arrangement, great voice, and great message.

Love to hear more.

As far as lyrics go, it was refreshing to see a positive message. There were some delivery options on lines that seemed a bit odd to me, but perhaps that is just a personal gripe. The chorus was actually very catchy and I enjoyed it a lot. I would suggest trying to make the overdubbed/background vocals mesh better with the main vocal. Sometimes they just seem slapped on there and I feel like if more time was put into the mixing process it would take this song to a whole new level. So much potential here guys, great work!
