Liner Notes: 

I told Helen once that it would be fun to do a dance track, so Helen sent this track. Oh my God, I had no idea how hard it would be to write, sing and produce in this style. At least I learned something. Maybe next time I should be more careful about what I say could be fun to try. Smile

Helen - Electro stuff is well out of my wheelhouse, but I've been having some fun with FL mobile Smile Val did a cracking job on this

Lyrics: 

This beat is calling me out...

4 3 2 1
This beat is calling

I feel the pulse in my body
I'm charged-the dancing is starting
This beat is calling me out
Something for everybody
There ain't no stopping this party
This beat is calling me out

Everyone on floor
Everyone wanting more
We're gonna spin
Spin around forever
Feel the beat rushing through
There ain't a thing left to do
But ride the wave
We're going there together

I feel the pulse in my body
I'm charged-the dancing is starting
This beat is calling me out
Something for everybody
There ain't no stopping this party
This beat is calling me out

Every turn, every move
Everyone got a groove
The night is young
It could go on forever
No denying the beat
It puts the step in your feet
Feel the air
It's nothing but electric

I feel the pulse in my body
I'm charged-the dancing is starting
This beat is calling me out
Something for everybody
There ain't no stopping this party
This beat is calling me out

I feel the pulse in my body
I'm charged-the dancing is starting
This beat is calling me out
Something for everybody
There ain't no stopping this party
This beat is calling me out

That hard work has certainly paid off! Infectious chorus, almost addictive! Well honed lyric to fit the dance track genre, and the vocal treatments, melodies, and harmonies worked beautifully! There does seem to be a lot more precision demanded in this style. Way to go!!

Wow, you two never cease to amaze me! This song is so much fun.

This was so "not what I was expecting" but every bit as good as I expected it to be! I could easily picture hearing this playing in any club. Another style of music you can add to your lengthy repertoire!

EDM isn't easy, trust me I know Biggrin

I'm in love with this song! Its absolutely fantastic and with the right production and adjustments, would be an insane hit. This song is certifiably outstanding and an amazing hit!

I just got an idea....hmm Biggrin (but seriously, well done. Oh. My. God. Becky. Look. At. Their. Song.)

Nicely done -- and it can be fun to step outside of our musical comfort zones at times...

Oh Great!!! I now have a new earworm... I can just hear myself humming the chorus for days now. How catchy is this, love it Smile

Smile yeah, -- I did a fusion of electronica with my guitar style, once, long time ago, ... some very "out there" friends in WA liked it (it's always WA or OR for some reason it seems). Folks who knew me couldn't make the association, hahhh... so never did that again.

Anyway, -- there is nothing like a solid, driving, chest crushing 1/4 beat, be it kick or bass or both! Works in any style. So, anyway, of course, this is well done. It's the kind of thing, just to disrupt folks, if know you have a sense of humor, you throw into a set just because.

Not at all the genre I was expecting to hear when I clicked on this song, but it's dynamite!

This beat is definitely calling me out as well!!! Great fun song with catchy sing-along lyric. Put a smile on my face all the way through.

I think I speak for everyone when I leave my comment as such:

*is too busy grooving to think of anything sensible to say* :P

Well done! Seriously, you 2 should do this again. Smile

Wow, so nice!
Catchy for sure.
I'm loving the autotuned vox.
Really made me tap my foot, which is as close as I get to dancing.
Wonderful collab!!

Ahh... classic Helen and Val! Ok, not! But a fun and well-done departure from what I have generally heard from either of you alone or together. Great dance vibe and, Val, you nailed the genre with your vocals! When two amazing musicians come together magic happens!

This is awesome! I want to do something similar someday and now that you've done it, I feel encouraged!

Highly contagious dance track. That chorus is killer. Also liking the words 'beat is calling me out'. With some beat master you'd make this a 'hit' on the dance floor! Cool to have done something way out your comfort zone and it works!

Very cool, had me dancing! The synthy bass and vocal processing are super fun.
