Radio Friendly

 

Song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

A relyric of the song “New World In The Morning” by Roger Whittaker

 

Read along to my Spoken Verse Performance!

 

 

They won’t play my song cause it’s not current and trendy,

 

Sung by pretty people in their prime.

 

Fact is that my album's cool and radio friendly.

 

Like they were in Nineteen Sixty-Nine.

 

 

Got a back line of brass just like B, S and T.       [Note:  That's Blood, Sweat and Tears]

 

That's how they could make a hit so why not me.

 

Now I got a sound that's cool and radio friendly.

 

Nineteen sixty-nine was tuba free.      [Note: My nod to the band of "Mr Austin" aka Guy Forsyth]

 

 

The time has come to take my game,

 

To heights not seen by many.

 

But I could not get up there all alone.

 

I'll change my name, for greater fame, and bring in to back me,

 

Babes with highs and guys with baritone.

 

And they can dance so I can take them out on tour.

 

I got them all, The Pips, Supremes and Jackson Four-our-our-our.

 

 

Now I got a sound that's cool and radio friendly.

 

Nineteen sixty-nine had big stage floors.

 

 

And for a steal I scored a groovy vintage moog.

 

And if it works, we'll play a "Prelude and Fu-u-u-uge".     [Note: My nod to moog master Wendy Carlos]

 

 

Now I got a sound that's cool and radio friendly.

 

Nineteen sixty-nine was in the groove.

 

 

I asked my muse and she advised I sell my car.

 

Then go buy a Leslie Speaker for guitar.

 

 

Now I got a sound that's cool and radio friendly.

 

In nineteen sixty-nine I'd be a star.
