Here's a link to a song created from some lyrics by Carroll Kiphen (you may know him from the lyrics forum here ? oh yeah) . . . when I read them, the musical idea flowed very easily from them, an enjoyable collaboration, didn't have to change much at all . . . Thanks Carroll !

 

Love Don’t Have a Brain

Verse 1

 You knew you shouldn’t kiss her, but you couldn’t stop yourself

Your heart just took control of you, And told you all was well.

In the heat of the moment, Logic goes astray.

You lose your hold, all control. Love don’t have a brain.

Chorus

No Love don’t, love don’t, Love don’t have a brain.

No Love don’t, love don’t, Love don’t have a brain

Verse 2

You knew you shouldn’t hold her, But your feelings took command.

Your mind told you don’t listen, She’ll want that wedding band.

In the heat of this moment, when logic goes astray.

You lose your hold, all control. Love don’t have a brain.

Chorus

No Love don’t, love don’t, Love don’t have a brain.

No Love don’t, love don’t, Love don’t have a brain

                               - SOLO -

Bridge

Remember what happened the last time, You didn’t use your head.

Remember how broken you wound up? You couldn’t get out of bed.

Verse 3

You knew you shouldn’t kiss her, But you couldn’t stop yourself.

 Your heart just took control of you, And told you all was well.

In the heat of this moment, when logic goes astray.

You lose your hold, all control. Love don’t have a brain.  

Chorus

No Love don’t, love don’t, Love don’t have a brain.

No Love don’t, love don’t, Love don’t have a brain

No Love don’t, love don’t, Love don’t have a brain.

No Love don’t, love don’t, Love don’t have a brain

Yes, Carroll's lyrics do tend to suggest melodies as you read them. I like this. I think it might benefit by bringing the vocals forward a bit. They seem a bit buried under the instruments. Also, I felt like I wanted to hear beefier drums. There's a good catchy pop tune here.

Nice job Pop! I think all you need to do is pull the guitars back just a bit. Good Voice 🙂

Thanks for listening Gavin and JAPOV . . . Gavin says vocals forward, JAPOV says guitars back . . . lol, maybe a little of both will help, I value your inputs, and will adjust accordingly !

I'm pretty sure what I'm hearing is a lot of added high-end to the vox to compete with the guitars lol, I do that a lot 😉
