Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

This song was compiled from a big pile of song sections originally intended for another rhapsody song but I chose the ones that seem to work together and make a whole as a more "ordinary" song. It's over three minutes and the lyrics sheet looks like there are enough words. All the evidence prove that this is a song. Smile

With this one, my mind was eased. I now think I can finish and Win the 50/90 Challenge this year, God willing. Forty done, ten to go and I got plenty of time left. It's easy to see in hindsight that I should have focused more on lyrics writing and keep the demos really simple from the start. But I guess I had to go through the stress and hard work of the first few months to get this "insight".

Man, I was so tired the whole last week. Smile

My spell/grammar-checker showed some red in the lyrics but it's too late now. But "näillä mennään".

Lyrics: 

When the moon is full and blue
is it romantic?
When you're singing out of tune
is it romantic?
When we're out of milk and bread
is it romantic?
When there's cookie crumbs in bed
is it romantic

Yes it is
Yes it is
cos baby, we were born to be together
( X 2 )

I wish I had a big balloon
to get away from little cars
I wish I had an aeroplane
to take you high to see the stars
I wish I had a rocket ship
and we'd go dancing on the Mars
Yeah, we'd go dancing on the Mars
( X 2 )

When we're out of milk and bread
is it romantic?
When there's cookie crumbs in bed
is it romantic?

Yes it is
Yes it is
cos baby, we were born to be together

I think part of 50/90 is working out your process! You seem to have so thats cool! This is good song - I like the almost call and response late on! melody is strong as is that little solo Bonza

love these lyics and what you do with them especially the almost overlapping vocals alternating on the middle part.

Hey Klaus

Clever, sweet, imaginative lyrics with an awesome light romantic pop melody! Love the musical sensibility you bring to this genre! Your vocal layers are superb! I’m so impressed by your body of songs and you creative talent!

Love the tone of that acoustic guitar. Very full sound, but nice and clean too. Wonderful lyrics. I like how light yet tender they are. It's so sweet. I like it a lot!

Regarding your liner notes: Klaus, you put up the best music in the entire group this year. There are other superstars but I honestly think you absolutely killed this challenge this year. I have told you already that I am ready to buy the record when it becomes available. Ok, enough said and regardless of 50 songs, it was an amazing run...one of the best ever.

Looking at the lyrics...cookie crumbs in bed...hilarious. Cos baby, we were born to be together...that's classic. Yeah, we'd go dancing on mars...nice. Looks like a lot of fun Klaus. I'm ready for the audio...hold. Nice guitar intro...wow you play good guitar....vocals now...can clearly understand the lyrics...out of milk and bread...cookie crumbs in bed....yes it is...yes it is...good melody...fun sound...good vocals...yeah we go dancing on the mars...changeup now...sounds great...you certainly can play that guitar...when were out of milk and bread is it romantic...nice outro. Awesome Klaus, I like it a lot. Great job on this.
