Hello JPF Family. I just finished 50/90, I only created 12 songs in the last 90 days, but it is better than nothing. I still co-run a songwriting group here in NH, I have been doing that for 5 years. I perform at open mics, I perform in a duet group for money!! LOL! Money is nice and I also co-run an open mic for money! LOL! Been a long time since I recorded acapella songs in the shower! I have an Art Event where I will be selling my photos in October. Staying busy, but always have my JPF family in my heart and mind and missing everyone!


This is one of my favorite songs I just created this week for 50/90: (be prepared for my mad mando skills LOL! I try....


CONNECTION on SoundCloud


Connection
by Tammy Jann
© 2019


Did you ever want to hear
what I have to say
My words flutter around you
then fly away
I wish you could take them in
I wish they were worth a listen
you and I are missing a connection


Did you ever want to see
the world around me
moon, stars, flowers, trees
colors in my atmosphere
I wish you saw natures perfection
witness my life from every direction
you and I are missing a connection


Chorus
I need to go on a journey to find
the eyes of the one that is searching for mine
the heart that beats to the rhythm of my soul
my connection, my story that' never been told


Did you ever want to feel
what I'm like to touch
holding hands feels so safe
is that asking too much
would you reach out and touch my skin
do you ever want this kind of affection
you and I are missing a connection


Chorus
I need to go on a journey to find
the eyes of the one that is searching for mine
the heart that beats to the rhythm of my soul
my connection, my story that' never been told

Hi Tam,

Very poetic lyric, and a great sound in this song. I like the harmonies and the simple clean sound in this song too.
thats all you, really a very nice song Tam. Lane

Hi Tammy,

Beautiful song and a wonderfully intimate performance.

Your phrasing feels very real and honest and your voice carries a range of emotions and is on target with them in every line.

'I need to go on a journey to find
the eyes of the one that is searching for mine"

That's magic there..

The singer's self-affirmation feels real and earned and helps carry her on that journey to find that real connection.It's refreshing to hear this from a woman sung in the first person with no attempt at making "clever" the main thing, and so the sincerity and warmth shine on through very clearly.

Well done, and great to hear from you and thanks for catching us up on what you've been doing. smile

Mike

Been shopping in the next town north of West Mayberry and finally got a chance to hear your song, Tams:

Wow... you nailed it and it is a moving song. Moving in the way Brian always says a song should be... and nobody with good sense argues with the Boss! LOL! Best of luck with it... and, as Mike said, "Thanks for catching us up regarding your busy schedule and songwriting activity." Keep up the good work, friend.

Enjoyed, ----Dave

Lane,

So happy to hear from you again! Yes, I do strive to be "me" LOL! Everything I seem to write comes across to folks as "poetic", so if that is me, than I am happy, I am glad you liked it and appreciate the listen!!!

JAPOV,

I have never been accused of being "optimistic" LOL, I'm usually dreary....so I am excited for that interpretation! I haven't played my mando for a long while and I feel my strumming is poor, but I am glad it comes across in some way, it is always better than acapella!!

Michael,

So very happy to see and hear you again! You know that anything you like of mine is just amazing to me, I do so appreciate your talent and art in return!! I am glad you liked it and that I could emote it well, that seems to be one of my major concerns, is to emote the song to the listener. Your time and comments always mean the world to me....Thank you....

Hi Tammy,

Sweet song for sure! I too really liked the lyrics, unique and you. I could hear a violin maybe cello or both working beautifully with this song especially in the solo area.

Enjoyed your passionate delivery.

Wow! Took me a while to stumble across this thread, and I'm glad I did. This knocked my socks off. The lyric is so vulnerable and endearing. Pure poetry. It's like a Dory Previn song sung by Joan Armatrading. I'm a fan!

Did you ever want to feel
what I'm like to touch
holding hands feels so safe
is that asking too much
would you reach out and touch my skin
do you ever want this kind of affection

That's some great straight-to-the-heart writing.

Tams,

Beautiful tune . . . your vocal is top, top notch on this. Really pretty stuff. Love that chorus melody—well, the whole melody—but the chorus in particular. Superb!

Humble regards,

Deej

Hi Tammy,

I haven't been on JP folks very long so just catching up

Very pretty melody, love the chorus; and your vocal is stunning. Don't worry about the production. It sounds great just the way it is.

Deej,

Thanks for listening, the catchy chorus is what we are all after, I'm glad you liked this one, was afraid the song was too simple, but so happy you liked it!!

Lovely refreshing song, Tammy. The chorus especially.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Paul,

I do appreciate your listen and comments and yes, I think I sing it faster now and don't use the mando when I perform, so my intro isn't the same, so I think I trimmed it down, but totally agree with what you said!

Vic,

Typing to you and looking at your photo of your younger self, I have listened to some of our songs recently and when I think of what you have taught me and how you have helped me and your friendship, I am just so happy you still want to listen and I am always happy to hear from you.

Gary,

I do appreciate your thoughts. The trick of lyric writing is the meaning and with a few word changes like "could to would", you change the original meaning of the song. The chorus that held a purpose, now means something different. I see this as your perspective, but it isn't one of a woman who is telling her side of a story. The point of the story is being involved with someone that isn't capable of this relationship and can't see the possibilities or who isn't trying, which makes her yearning and saying "could", knowing he isn't capable. This is someone who is having a relationship and wanting something that isn't going to happen and that the other person isn't going to be able to understand. So the chorus intention is for her to convince herself to move on. There is no more questioning, she is trying to convince herself and reassure herself of the possibilities. Your changes would change the meaning and direction of the original write and I did consider the chorus/prechorus/bridge situation of the song, but I wanted to please myself vocally and challenge myself to change up my own and very usual structure and play with it a bit. I run a songwriting group and we challenge ourselves this way. I do again, appreciate the time and thought you put to this.

Tammy

Tammy. Was I ever that young? Seems so long ago.
You have come so far with your music.

You are killing it Lady.
This is masterfully constructed.
As always I love your vocals and those warm harmonies and phrasing are to die for.

All the best
