Topic: Kisses on the Roundabout

this is one of the songs i deleted when i formatted my SD card, done in a country/rock style, i didn't like it then so i re-did it in a more rock style for the new SD card. i then began again in the country/rock style and i find i'm very enthusiastic about it even though it's not finished yet. secondly, i wanted to see if i could get the chopro formatting to work, so here goes, hope you like it and feel free to comment.

Kisses On The RoundaboutPhill Williams


4/4 country rock




[G] She was only [Bm] sixteen. [Em] But she knew who she [C] was.


[G] She was more than [Em] beautiful to [D] me.


[G] When she held me [Bm] close to her. [Em] That night in the [C] park.


[G] How were we to [Em] know it would end in [D] tragedy? [C-D]




[Em] Kisses on the [D] roundabout. [C] Cuddles on the [G] swings.


[C] I know we didn't [Bm] take things all that [D] far.


[G] She was such a [Bm] pretty girl. [Em] How could I stand a [C] chance?


[G] When all the other [Em] guys were making [D] eyes at her.


[G] She was more than [Bm] wonderful. [Em] She had grace to [C] spare.


[G] How was she to [Em] know her time was [D] running out. [C-D]


[Em] Kisses on the [D] roundabout. [C] Cuddles on the [G] swings.


[C] That would be the [Bm] last time I would [D] be with her.


BRIDGE




[C] Lights in the [G] mirror. [Am] Dark up [G] ahead.



[C] Walking in the [G] road. [Am] Forgetting everything I [D] said.




[G] That was so many [Bm] years ago. [Em] She'd put a note through my [C] door.


[G] She never felt the [Em] same for me. As I [D] did for her.


[G] Sometimes I think I [Bm] see her. [Em] As I walk through a [C] crowd.


[G] And then I wonder [Em] how would she look [D] now? [C-D]


[Em] Kisses on the [D] roundabout. [C] Cuddles on the [G] swings.


[C] Can't forget the [Bm] times we had back [D] then.


SOLO




[C] [-] [D] [-] [Em] [-] [D] [-] [C] [-] [G] [|] [-] [C] [-] [Bm] [-] [D] [|] [C] [-] [D] [-] [Em] [-] [D] [-] [C] [-] [G]




[Em] Kisses on the [D] roundabout. [C] Cuddles on the [G] swings.


[C] Can't forget the [Bm] times we had back [D] then.

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Phill that song makes me feel like a teenager again excellent I looking forward to hearing it.

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

I played it through and I like it.  Sad but real.

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Thanks Peatle and Deadeye. Yes it's a true story, well in actual fact at least 4 true stories!
The park part at the beginning is about a girl I had a crush on at 13 or 14... My crush lasted longer than the affair.
At 16 I had a crush on a very beautiful girl who sadly died in a car crash...I was devistated.
Lights in the mirror....I worked as a mechanic on HGV lorries and one of the drivers got blinded by a car coming against him and didn't see a man and wife walking in the road.
The last part was a lovely girl that sent me a dear John letter. Theses days it would have been a text!

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Nice work, Phill ... takes me back to my own teen years, and those awkward feelings of self-doubt and second-guessing. There wasn't a "Dating for Dummies" book out back then, and I didn't read it. smile

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Hey Phill - Did a little edit to fix the solo text stepping on the last chorus...also getting your name to show up at the top...and the "4/4 country rock"

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

you have my unbridled thanks, Jets, i struggled for ages trying to get that bit to work, i'd love to know how you managed it as i thought i'd done everything as written in the sticky?

To be truthful, I kind of played around with a few things to eventually get it to format correctly. Here's what I eventually found out: 1 - no gaps between title & name & tempo. If you leave gaps (as in blank lines) it messes it up; 2 - I ended up putting brackets around each chord and dashes in your solo and that that kept the solo chords on a separate line.

Also the "4/4 country rock"  was missing the "c:" but that was an easy fix. It's all good now though.

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Great song again. You are so talented. This one tells a great story. Old and new both.

Music is what feelings sound like.
Music is life, that why our hearts have beats.

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

I had a little play with this one Phill but looking forward to hearing a recording to know how you see your song.

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Thanks guys. Yes old, the story begins in about 1963/4, the last part when i got dumped! In the mid 70s.

As for the recording....I think it's done as I leave it a few days before the final mix to make sure everything is right. Hopefully upload Monday evening.
I'm a big Eagles fan but I didn't notice till the end that their influence is strong on it. I'm sure you'll let me know if I've gone too far?

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Roger, love to hear your version before you hear mine????

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

OK Phill I will record it and e-mail it to you as soon as I have finished. You can certainly post yours as I will not listen to it until after I am done as, rightly or wrongly, I do not want to, even subconsciously, have any outside influence on what I do. smile

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Sounds like a plan....

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

Great lyrics Phill,  beautiful music.

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

I love your  nice clean lead guitar with the vocals and backing vocals. A top song all those tracks you laid down fit perfect  like a hand in a glove. On top of your musicianship the sound engineering balanced perfectly.

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

One word: "Fantastic".

Roger

For Heaven's sake don't let anyone list to the recording that I sent you. lol lol lol

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

On top form Phill great song.
Well done.

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

big thanks to everyone that gave a listen.

Roger, apart from your vocals being a little distorted your rendition was great, and the deliberate mistake!!!!!

i think other members might like to hear your version, i wont put it up but why don't you?

Re: Kisses on the Roundabout

all right i know...you'll all think i'm daft...but....when i deleted the original i had to record it again but i didn't like it very much, so i did it in a different style, then forgot about it while i sorted version 1 out. then i found version 2 (which is in a different key, faster and rockier) and finished that off and put it up on soundcloud. the link is below and i would be delighted if you all listened again and commented. thanks.
