MADDY - Copyright : Earl.C.Webb
SOMETIMES I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S TRUE, MADDY
THERE'S SO MUCH OF YOUR MAMA IN YOU
YOU EVEN LAUGH THE WAY SHE COULD
IF I COULD BRING HER BACK, I WOULD, BUT I CAN'T
OH I'M SUPPOSED TO BE STRONG FOR YOU, MADDY
THE WAY THAT SHE'D EXPECT ME TO
BUT WHEN YOU SAY IT'S JUST YOU AND I
AND DADDY PLEASE DON'T CRY, I TRY, BUT I CAN'T
PERHAPS I'LL WAKE UP AND FIND I WAS WRONG
AND MADDY IT WAS JUST A DREAM ALL ALONG
IF I COULD PULL RABBITS OUT OF HATS, MADDY
I WOULD WISH YOUR MAMA BACK
IF I HAD A MAGIC WAND, THESE PAST TWO YEARS WOULD BE GONE, BUT I CAN'T, NO I CAN'T, I CAN'T.
strong vocals,sung with feeling - you surely get that barfly, last call kind of vibe.
Production is solid with some very nice tonalities (with an exception or two - see below)
mix is also very nice, everything right where it should be.
Very touching and well instrumented piece sung with a very soulful voice that sounds like a really nice mix of Luther Vandross and Michael McDonald.
Really sweet sound! Very sad.... very nice instrumentation
I think I recognize this artist and I'm already a big fan of everything I've heard him do. Great song, beautiful vocal performance, perfect instrumentation. I almost select the title, I CAN'T, but I'm going with MADDY. If I wrote a song for someone by name, that would have a better chance of being the title. Great job!
I hear Michael McDonald singing this tune... Very heartfelt and soulful. I found this in Blues. It certainly feels Old School R&B to me :-) NICE WORK HERE!!! All the BEST to you with this song!!!
Nice start here! Very nice voice and ear candy as well.
Good mix and theme of course!
Losing your mate they say is the hardest thing you will ever go through in your life-------God Bless the people who have had to go through that!
Very 70's Doobie Brothers with Michael Macdonald sound in an extremely well produced sentimental pop ballad ... very well done indeed.
This could have been a hit for Ray Charles or for Billy Vera and the Beaters...you are one exceptionally great vocalist...I was mesmerized into listening to where your melodic lines took me...The arrangement was as emotionally charged as it was unpredictable...all I can say is wow...I'd like to hear this again and again...this could be a feature in a movie...it's that good...it could be released as a single and should be pitched to every current R&B singer artist signed to a record deal...great song...great melodies, great phrasing, great vocal, great chord progression...
I loved the Fender Rhodes sound. Great vocals. Nice mix. This song had a lot of emotion. Great, stuff nice.
nice song. smooth vocals very soulful performance.
nice theme and sentiment
Nice song. Lyrically sound, nice instrumentation. A beautiful song that shows in its simplicity.
Really rich, cool sounding voice. Unique. Keep it up, groovy. Its blues, but a
very contemporary feel. Cool harmonies. Good job.
masterfully written, composed and performed. i love the way this story is in no hurry to be told and screams of authenticity. you, good sir, are gifted.
Beautiful work again Earl........
