Liner Notes: 

Having fun mucking around with different Real Tracks in BIAB. My first Gypsy jazz style opus. I like the flow of the lyric though it's probably not perfect yet.

Lyrics: 

Larger Than Life

Saints and sinners
Losers, winners
Welcome to the show
Fate will call
Your curtain fall
But now you’re good to go

You’re the only sucker
Who can suck
the way you do
So take your schtick
to centre stage
and to yourself be true

You be you
Do what you do

Ecstatically erratic
Emphatically enthusiastic
Hearts ain’t made of plastic
They’re muscle bound and quite elastic
Love can be traumatic
But joy is free and feels fantastic
Listen through the static
We’re all born to be larger than life

Lovers fighters
Wrong or right
It’s all the same to me
The only gift
you get to keep
is to know your soul is free

Don’t take time
to learn the script
it changes with the wind
Find the rhyme
that fits your time
And be your own best friend
sing it again
Feel it swing

Ecstatically erratic
Emphatically enthusiastic
Hearts ain’t made of plastic
They’re muscle bound and quite elastic
Love can be traumatic
But joy is free and feels fantastic
Listen through the static
We’re all born to be larger than life

Ecstatically erratic
Emphatically enthusiastic
Hearts ain’t made of plastic
They’re muscle bound and quite elastic
These days are drastic
But joy is free and feels fantastic
Listen through the static
We’re all born to be larger than life

Larger than life
Don’t just survive when you can thrive
Ecstatically erratically alive

Awesome hot club jazz, this is really solid all the way around , the playing, the sing, the lyrics and then the harmonies, the harmonies are super sweet.

Yup love that sort of Gypsy jazz. Very nice lyric, great instrumentation, with your usual excellent vocals.

Oh this is fun! Reminds me of the Asylum Street Spankers a bit. Terrific harmonies! Your voice is really well-suited for this genre. Love the lyrics, particularly in the chorus.

Wonderful feel-good package of lyrics and music. Django would be proud!

"Ecstatically erratic" etc, wow, what a wonderful chorus! This is just what I needed today! Fabulous lyrics and put over really well! Now, you can do this bass, one guitar and one fiddle on stage!!

Lovely! The feel is great, and I'm loving all the little details with the violin lines and background vocals.

Ooh, yes. Love this style. Such fun wordplay in the chorus, and I particularly like the second verse ("You're the only sucker who can suck the way you do"). So impressed!

This is so uplifting! Love the enthusiasm heightened by the creative rhyming and hot jazz sounds. That high vocal at the end lifts the energy even more.
If you didn't get to meet @sherrycanary yet, you must! Bet you two could do some fantastic collabs.
