Re: New Song "Can't Get Any Better Than This"

Thank you for your kind words Jan !
I really love this song  - just a simple love ballad - I wrote it so that it can be a guy or girl singing.
Hopefully everyone here on Chordie has that someone special that it would apply to.
I'll try today to get a recording of it on soundcloud.

Thanks again for taking the time to give it a look.

Re: New Song "Can't Get Any Better Than This"

lovely song Jim. most people would like to be able to say those things which makes it a very personal song for whoever sings it, unfortunately it wont be me as i seem to have developed some kind of throat and chest infection. hope someone can do it credit.

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Thanks Phill

Sorry to hear your under the weather - probably caused by al lthe Royalty stuff going on this past month (just kidding)
- Have to admit - wedding was pretty impressive though of the small bit I watched.
I liked this song bc it could apply to someone that is getting a second chance, a first timer, a young love or just about anyone who has found that special person.
I knew when I found my wife - after years of bachelorhood - it was really quick - I knew she was it.  We are on year 35 this year- and still very much in love.

Thanks for giving it a look - I appreciate the kind words - they mean a lot coming from you.
My best wishes to Ann and your fam -
Get well

Jim

Congrats on another amazing song, TIG.

And bigger congrats for your 35-years of marriage. As another happy "lifer" (39 years in August) being able to honestly and respectfully express what you feel is an essential key ingredient in a successful relationship, whether as a spouse, parent, or friend. Great work, Jim ... you've got a real knack for it.
