Liner Notes: 

My effort for the prompt of "Look". I use the word look an awful lot, so it must fit.... Had some fun doing this - really wanted to get some strings and other bits on it but am over time as is - not even a lead guitar in sight .

Thanks corinne54 for the prompt


Look at me ( a musical refugee) © Jason Challis 2021

Got that good time rock n roll
Got the heavy groove full of soul
Never let the beat grow old
Just move a little the stories told

Look at me
A musical refugee
I come in from out in the cold
The music’s fresh the music’s old
So just look at me and fill your soul

Theres the classical galop of strings
The magic that it always brings
A classic vibe of mystical things
Surely fit for queens and kings


Rock steady with that heavy metal
Nothing easy nothing settled
Riff tastic, delicate as a petals
Raining fire in high decibels


Country song hear that twang
Lonesome as a cowboy he sang
Them good ole boys the church bell rang
She’s leaving him on the outbound train, oh dang


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

ROCK, yeah! Chorus is quite cool, and I like the "Look at me / a musical refugee" couplet. I can really groove to this! The outro bit is really catchy too!

Fun song ! I can just picture the artist wanting to be watched as he performs. I too like the musical refugee phrase - great concept.
