Love in my heart (and you on my mind)

Love in my heart (and you on my mind)

Liner Notes: 

Three things brought this song about. Firstly there were some kind comments on my piano playing on my last demo, secondly I had been critical of misogynistic blues lyrics and to seemed only fair that I should walk the talk and write a non-sexist blues song. Finally, I'm missing live performing so I just belted out a rough piano and drum track that has some echoes of playing live.

This was the demo that started me off.


I got love in my heart
And you on my mind
Love in my heart
And you on my mind
I can’t stop thinking about you
All the time

I love the things you say
The things you do
That’s what makes me love you

But it’s such a mystery
What it is you see in me

I got love in my heart
And you on my mind

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

this is the kind of song jimmy rushing use to sing. reminds me a bit of "deed i do" you do such an exuberant job of it.

Great follow up, its like a blended Dr john and Randy Newman. Very entertaining

I'm with coolparadiso -- got a bit of both those performers in it, but it's all yours and it's wonderfully jaunty and super fun to listen to! This would be killer when performed live.

I miss playing live too. This surely has the feel, and all the feels-- lazily raucous, feel-good and straight up blues.
