    Wink Remember the 70's (mostly JABB & GPO)

    Enough of sad tunes let's have some happy ones.
    This is me playing with 70's TV music. If someone writes lyrics I'll alter it to suit.

    Nostalga again from me remembering years gone by.

    Of the era Love Boat etc.

    Remember the 70's updated 20th May

    This is too much fun! Now that's a genre that I can dance to! Good string mix and nice drums! Loved it!

    Nice dance mix on this, Ray. Remember, indeed... lol.
    For a while there, it seemed like the same fellow was
    writing most of it.

    I've never ventured into this realm of music; but I
    might suggest a little fuller, lusher voicing on the high
    parts. These guys really liked to slush up a mix, so
    don't hold back, man; lay on the layers... rofl!

    My best,

    Ray, you are really becoming Mr. Versatile--Wow, this was a totally unexpected piece of music. Nicely done. There's an almost dreamy kind of nostalgia to it because it is Much lighter than the kind of pieces it's a take off on.

    I like the direction David's reply was going, and is in the realm of what I was thinking of as I listened--what I tried to describe in my opening paragraph here. Thicker string orchestration perhaps, maybe some brass? The disco drums are there and the rest is delicate in comparison--Maybe if it was all more beefy, the '70's tribute you're doing would be even more evocative? The passages themselves, musically, were definitely from '70's TV-land though.

    Thanks for this!

    Thanks Paula
    Fun indeed, I couldn't resist having a go at this nostalga, having jabb & gpo to play with. The Strings and Drums are from Garritan Libraries.
    Glad you enjoyed

    Who was that fellow David he certainly got feet tapping.
    I've already fattened the strings with Full Strings doubling 1st violins and cellos. I could spend hours more on it but it's a demo that may become a song if I write some corny words it. Then I'll expand it.

    Cheers

    Thanks Randy for listening in.
    Damnation I didn't catch you out .
    As a said to David, yes I could expand it into a major orchestration but as a demo of this type, only if I decide to use it for live disco dancing .
    My wife's feet are moving already. She'll wear out the carpet.
    Updated already a little fatter.

    I remember the 70's, not sure I want to
    The 60's I do not remember (except in the occassional flash back)

    As for this piece of music, well done.

    Trouble is I remember both Ed,
    I got sober about 1973 just in time to get married.
    It's mostly sad music we listen to here so I thought I'd brighten the place up with throw away fluff !
    Glad you enjoyed my whispy endevours.

    Ray -

    Definitely "Love Boat" era styling. A little more sophisticated, though, with your shifts.

    Nicely done! Lyrics almost write themselves for this.

    Always nice listening to your pieces.

    Best,



    Joe
