Sometimes things work out and sometimes they don’t. And sometimes they don’t before they do. At least that’s the premise for every Hallmark Movie and my original song “Dancing With Me”. When it comes to love and dating, most of us have made our share of mistakes. Let’s face it, dating is a mix of highs and lows; a desire to be with the one you love and to share how you feel, mixed with missteps, bad timing, and misunderstandings; intertwined with intermittent serendipitous bliss.
In budding relationships, it’s often hard to understand or to even know why things don’t work out. Modern dating can be complicated at times and it seems that everyone has a story. I created a Hallmark Movie ending for this song because that’s what I hope for anyone that is in a potentially meaningful relationship. I hope that the missteps, bad timing, and misunderstandings can be overcome. That somehow love will win over everything that seems to often prevent new relationships from ever blossoming. That in the end, things will work out, just like in any good Hallmark Movie.
I recorded this song at Imurj Studios in Raleigh NC. I recorded several guitar tracks, and added a subtle vocal harmony. The 1st guitar solo represents the “trying to get in step” part of the relationship. The second guitar solo is more passionate and fluid, and leads to the resolution of the song.
I imagine this song being played as the first song at a wedding for a couple that has had their share of ups and downs trying to make it to that special day. It would be cool to have Tim McGraw or Garth Brooks record it some day.
To all I say, if you have the chance for love, take it. If you have love, hold on to it and protect it. And, if your heart has been broken, it will eventually heal.
Thanks for listening…
