On Singing Along to the Bee Gees

On Singing Along to the Bee Gees

The Bee Gees were an interesting band. On one hand, they wrote some beautiful songs. On the other hand, no man with a pair of descended testes should sing that high. It’s just wrong on so many levels.

Naturally, I can’t sing along with the Bee Gees (I have a very deep voice). And when I do, I feel like a tranny. But that’s life…we can’t have it all.

That’s why I prefer the instrumental version of their songs. Here’s a great rendition by Tommy Emmanuel, the Australian guitar virtuoso:

How Rhyme Scheme and Pronouns Are Used to Create a Hit Song

How Rhyme Scheme and Pronouns Are Used to Create a Hit Song

“Troubadour” by George Strait is a hit song: and 34 million views on YouTube will attest to my claim.

When we analyze the lyrics, we see the art of songwriting at work; in particular, the use of effective rhyme scheme and pronoun.

I still feel 25 most of the time.
I still raise a little cain with the boys.
Honky Tonks and pretty women,
But Lord I’m still right there with ’em
Singing above the crowd and the noise…

The rhyme scheme here is AB/AAB. This sets the table for the rest of the song, and he’ll contrast it later against the chorus.  The structure matters. Professional songwriters will never repeat a rhyme scheme in both the verse and chorus.

Secondly, he’s writing in the first person (I/Me/My). Again, we see an important element of songwriting. A hit song is always in the first and second person: it’s me/you and never he/she. Some examples?

  • “Lady…for so many years I thought I’d never find you.”
  • I’ve got you…under my skin”
  • I left my heart in San Francisco.”
  • You are my sunshine, my only sunshine…”

You get the picture. The pronoun is critical to a hit song…a point that was made by Ralph Murphy, the vice-president of ASCAP. The next time that you hear a hit song, take note of the pronoun.

And now on to the chorus…

Sometimes I feel like Jesse James
Still tryin’ to make a name.
Knowing nothing’s gonna change what I am.
I was a young troubador
When I wrote in on a song.
And I’ll be an old troubador when I’m gone…

Notice that the rhyme scheme has changed: we’re on to AAB/ABB. It’s a subtle change, yet a profound one. The listener can notice a difference (if only on a subconscious level). Also, we’re still in the first person. Introducing a different pronoun would confuse the listener.

Now, we’re on to the second verse…

Well the truth about a mirror…
Is that a damn old mirror…
Don’t really tell the whole truth.
It don’t show what’s deep inside.
Or read between the lines.
And it’s really no reflextion of my youth…

The rhyme scheme here is different than the opening verse. The reason? Very simple…the listener gets bored easily. So the songwriter has to alter the pattern to pique the interest. Logic would dictate that we repeat the rhyme scheme from the first verse. But a talented songwriter knows better. You have to do something different if you don’t have a bridge (which the song doesn’t).

Needless to say, George Strait did not write this song; he knows better. Instead, he hired a pro to do the work for him. And Strait focused on what he does best – singing. Every man is born with a talent. And sometimes the talent involves knowing what you CANNOT do, as opposed to what he can do.

Enjoy the song…and notice how the fundamentals of songwriting come together.

Who is the Most Successful American Musician of All Time?

Who is the Most Successful American Musician of All Time?

If we judge by number one hits, then the answer is George Strait.

Let’s look at the biggest stars in American music:

  • George Strait = 60 number ones
  • Elvis Presley = 20 number ones
  • Michael Jackson = 13 number ones

That’s right. George Strait has nearly double the number one hits of Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley COMBINED! He has more number ones than any artist in any genre of music. Moreover, he sold more than 100 million records worldwide, and he once gave a concert that drew 104,000 (beating the previous record of 87,000, held by The Rolling Stones).

So now the obvious question…if George Strait is so amazing, then why don’t we hear more about him? You’ll get a lot of answers…and nearly all of them are wrong! “Well, perhaps reason #1, or perhaps reason #2…and so forth.”

The Major knows why…

The media despises heritage America.

George Strait is a cowboy from Texas. And his songs are about romantic love and patriotism. Moreover, he’s been married to the same woman since 1971.

george an dwife
George has been married to the same woman (Norma) for 45 years. This fills the media with hateful venom

The music industry was once noble; however, now it’s a cesspool of dysfunction. Everything they applaud is degenerate or broken: i.e. Miley Cyrus wearing a dildo outfit, Snoop Dog singing about murdering the President, etc.  They’re a weapon of cultural agitprop, inseminating your children with a Satanic Semen.

miley
Miley Cyrus is more celebrated by the media than George Strait…gee, I wonder why?

George Strait has never received full credit. The reason is because he’s happily married, sings about positive love, and loves the United States. In short, he represents everything that the mainstream media despises.

Why the Music Videos of Kenny Chesney are Feminist Tripe

Why the Music Videos of Kenny Chesney are Feminist Tripe

Kenny Chesney has a wonderful voice. In addition, he has a team of professional songwriters that work for him. Nashville veterans that top understand the template of songwriting: i.e. the alternation of a rhyme scheme between the verse and chorus, a bridge that adds new information to a theme, etc.

So Kenny Chesney has a great voice, along with excellent lyrics. What could possibly go wrong? The answer is simple…feminist intrusion

The music videos of Kenny Chesney are feminist tripe to the trained eye; and it turns an otherwise beautiful song into a piece of divisive agitprop.

Let’s go through the list:

1.) Anything But Mine

This is a great ballad. It’s a song about a man in love with a woman. However, take a look at the music video. At 1:22 of the video, the woman tries to kick the man in the head. Because, you know…every man loves to be physically assaulted.

The reason is simple. The music industry is run by a diabolic group of feminazis. And their goal is the destruction of anything beautiful or sacred. Don’t believe me? Read the Scum Manifesto of Valerie Solano It’s filled with beautiful lines like the following:

“Every man, deep down, knows he’s a worthless piece of shit.”

“To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo.”

What a gal, no? Unfortunately, she’s not just a random troll. You see, she’s a feminist…and feminism is the dominating agenda of the day – extending from the White House to the Music Industry.

2.) She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy

This a fun, albeit corny song. However, the beat is great and so is the message. Again, it’s about a man in love with a woman.

Let’s take a look at the first verse of the song:

Plowin’ these fields in the hot summer sun
Over by the gate lordy here she comes
With a basket full of chicken and a big cold jug of sweet tea

I highlighted the important part – a woman is walking toward the man with a basket full of chicken and a jug of sweet tea. That’s what every hard-working man wants – to see a beautiful woman willing to dote on him.

Now you at the video around 0:28. This is the scene that corresponds to the line.

If you’ll notice, the woman DOES NOT have a basket of chicken in her hand, nor a jug of sweet tea. So why the the producers of the video leave that out? Their job is to match the video to the lyrics.

The answer is simple…they left out the scene because they did not want to offend the feminist factions of the audience. It’s obvious.

3.) Don’t Blink

This is another great song. It’s about putting value in the present…in your family and children. A wonderful message.

Notice again how the video producers infect the video with their Satanic semen. The video opens with an old man, sharing his life lessons. At around 0:30, he tells us to cherish our parents…”especially mother.”

Once again…the feminism doesn’t end. The video gets destroyed by placing one parent over the other. Essentially, it disrespects the fathers of the world by adhering to the Satanic cult of Abzug/Steinem/Dworkin.

Conclusion

Do you think Kenny Chesney is aware of this? Perhaps…but there might not be anything he can do about it. The music industry is ruled by the dark forces of humanity, a den of adders. So you have to sell your soul along the way.

Remember, country music is “heartland music.” therefore, it’s the enemy of the globalist agenda. By injecting it with feminism, they can poison the lives of innocent Americans.

Is “Just When I Needed You Most” a Beautiful Song or an Anthem to Stalking?

Is “Just When I Needed You Most” a Beautiful Song or an Anthem to Stalking?

Answer: It’s about a stalker.

Such beautiful lyrics and vocals (orignally written and sung by Randy Van Warmar, RIP). Until you think about…then you realize that it’s a painful, blue-pill lament. Clearly, this is a man without game. So he’s forced to pine over a lost woman. He lacks the abundance mindset. An alpha male understands that his stock is always high. If he’s unleashed onto the market, then a line of suitors will await. Clearly, this is not an Alpha male.

You be the judge…

You packed in the morning and I
Stared out the window and I
Struggled for something to say
You left in the rain
Without closing the door
I didn’t stand in your way

But I miss you more than I
Missed you before and now
Where I’ll find comfort, God knows
‘Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most

(Left me, just when I needed you most)

Now most every morning I
Stare out the window and I
Think about where you might be
I’ve written you letters
That I’d like to send
If you would just send one to me

‘Cause I need you more than I
Needed before and now
Where I’ll find comfort, God knows
‘Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most

(Left me, just when I needed you most)

[Instrumental Interlude]

You packed in the morning I
Stared out the window and I
Struggled for something to say
You left in the rain
Without closing the door
I didn’t stand in your way

Now I love you more than I
Loved you before and now
Where I’ll find comfort, God knows
‘Cause you left me
Just when I needed you most
Oh, yeah
You left me
Just when I needed you most

You left me
Just when I needed you most

You Can’t Make Old Friends

You Can’t Make Old Friends

I saw Kenny Rogers on Friday night. He played all the hit songs, of course. But his finale was perfection –  a lesser known tune entitled “You Can’t Make Old Friends.” It was dedicated to a 50-year friendship that he had with Dolly Parton.

During the song, I was reminded of Kenny’s genius – how the Gods have blessed him. How a golden voice was put in the body of a common man. How he gave praise to the GIFT. In short, I saw a GREAT MAN.

Do you have somebody special in your life? Somebody that’s been at your side for decades? Do you honor and cherish them?

I hope you enjoy this video…I hope it touches your heart the way it touches mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chBNBzE35EI

You Can’t Make Old Friends

What will I do when you are gone?
Who’s gonna tell me the truth?
Who’s gonna finish the stories I start,
The way you always do?

When somebody knocks at the door,
Someone new walks in.
I will smile and shake their hands,
but you can’t make old friends.

You can’t make old friends
Can’t make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when.
But you can’t make old friends.

How will I sing when you are gone?
Cause it wont sound the same.
Who will join in on those harmony parts,
When I call your name?

You can’t make old friends
Can’t make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when.
But you can’t make old friends.

When Saint Peter opens the gate,
And you come walking in.
I will be there just waiting for you.
Cause you can’t make old friends
Cause you can’t make old friends.

When I am out on the stage all alone
And I hear the music begin.
We all know the show must go on.
But you can’t make old friends.

You can’t make old friends.
Can’t make old friends
And you and me, will be young again.
You can’t make old friends.

You and me, will be together again.
Cause we both know, we will still be old friends.

You can’t make old friends
Not the way we have always been.

The Reason that “Right Back Atcha Babe” Was Not a Hit Song

The Reason that “Right Back Atcha Babe” Was Not a Hit Song

Right Back Atcha Babe” is a song by Tim Mcgraw from the album Emotional Traffic . It has a fantastic beat, wonderful vocals, and a beautiful sentiment in the chorus.

“Right back atcha babe/ Just like a boomerang, everything good you threw my way/ Right back atcha babe/ Best that you get ready/ There’s a whole lot of loving that’s gonna be coming/ Right back atcha babe”

tim mcgraw

I heard the song on a Delta flight from Atlanta to Vegas, and I replayed it fifty times. So I got to wondering…why was it not a hit song? To answer the question, I reflected on the number one rule of songwriting:

The lyrics to a hit song will always make a woman feel good about herself.

As Harlan Howard (author of “Tiger by the Tail”) used to say, “Women buy 90% of music and they make men buy the other 10%.” Very true. So I put the lyrics of “Right Back Atcha Babe” under inspection. Do they make a woman feel good about herself?”

That night in Phoenix when you stole my jeep
Then you brought it home with a new stereo, baby, that was sweet…Oh and how can I forget the day you gave me my red guitar?

We’re off to a bad start. Women want to receive gifts…not give them. So the song has already failed. It’s ignoring the structure of courtship, where men are the pursuer and women are the pursued. The writer probably thought he was being a good-little-feminist. But gender equality only works in the protected hallways of academia: not in the real world.

First things first
I want you to close your eyes
This may not even come close to that first kiss you gave me
But I’m gonna try
Oh and here’s that ring you’ve been waitin for all these years
As for the tears, that you’ve cried
When we made love the first time

I highlighted the problematic part. Women don’t want to cry after sex…no matter how many romance novels we read. They want to feel exhilarated in the arms of an Alpha king. The only women that cry after sex are addicted to Cymbalta.

We don’t need to go any further with our analysis, the song has already failed. Again, remember the important rules:  For a song to be a hit, the lyrics will always make a woman feel good about herself.

The customer is always right…and the customer for music is a woman.
