Rainy Night Road (ft, CoriAnder & Gus Harrower

Story Behind The Song

I wrote 'Rainy Night Road' on acoustic guitar and luckily for me the lyrics came quickly, which doesn't always happen! I realised that the song needed the magic of Corin Anderson's (CoriAnder) production skills and a vocal from Gus Harrower.

Hands locked on the steering wheel
Will I ever make it home?
I'm battered by the wind and rain
Emergency control.
Cause I'm sitting in my box of tricks
With a five year guarantee
It's ageing like a vintage wine
As nobody can see.

Here in my mind
Your face in the summer sun
Time rewinds
Erased, undone

Blue light sirens on my tail
I'm a genuine buccaneer
Radio, not quite company
There's a static atmosphere

Scenes, hard to find
A trace of a race that's won
Dreams unwind
Erased, like a web unspun

Shaken by rain again
Filled to the top
Waiting for something

Here in my mind
Your face in the summer sun
Time rewinds
Erased, undone
Waiting for something
Waiting for you

Interesting mixing going on here. Great unexpected chords for what I consider to be the chorus. I could hear this as part of a sci fi movie soundtrack. I envy your sound library!

I LOVE this a LOT! Been looking for more stuff like this to listen to while I ride my bike! It feels like the credit roll at the end of a movie, or the resolve part in a movie for the main character riding and thinking! I kept waiting for a full drum kit to spill into it but the arrangement is just fine without it! VERY Well DONE!
