  • I Like You

    I hope this works.

    http://picosongs.com/wS2M

    This is just what it looks like. A song for someone you like. A song of appreciation without any love or romance. Could be to any friend.


    I LIKE YOU


    I like you, you make me smile
    you make the clouds all turn and miss me by a mile.
    You're the best that ever was
    near as I can tell
    a little of your laughter leaves me ringing like a bell,
    I like you.

    I like you, you're pretty great
    to know you're there tomorow, I can hardly wait
    your a shiny copper penny in the bottom of the pool
    a double dipper sundae on a day there is no school
    I like you.

    (whistle verse)

    You're the kind of friend I need, to get me through the day
    you're cool, you're neat, you're really sweet,
    and all I have to say
    is I like you.

    I like you, you make me laugh,
    your silly smile is just a giggle and a half
    when you walk into the room I know the air is fit to breath,
    until you turn to go, you know that I will never leave
    I like you
    I like you
    I like you

        Try this: "I Like You"(28) by Illinois Jack.

        “Good Vibrations” was probably a good record but who's to know? You had to play it about 90 bloody times to even hear what they were singing about. What’s next? Rock opera? —Pete Townshend, Melody Maker Interview, 1966.

            Good lyric, though it would be nice if you would post it so we could find all the little nits that need picking.

            I especially liked the line "double-dipper sundae on a day when there's no school."

            Not sure if you intended it as a kid's song, but I'm definitely getting that vibe.

                Quite nice.

                What's that percussion? Are you tapping on your cheek?

                I was waiting for some revealing conclusion. Or some twist. (But that's just me). The last line:
                "Until you turn to go, you know that I will never leave," left me a little flat. It just sits there. Like I said, i was waiting for something more conclusive or revealing.

                But very nice.

                    I really like this song, for the most part anyway. The melody seems a little flat to me. Maybe because it sounds like one of Rick Dieffenbach's tunes, only he always comes up with really, really good, really inventive tunes.

                    As for the lyric, some of the lines made me smile, others made me chuckle. The opening verse is killer!

                    There are a few I might consider working on, if I were you. They're in bold.

                    I like you, you make me smile
                    you make the clouds all turn and miss me by a mile.
                    You're the best that ever was
                    near as I can tell
                    a little of your laughter leaves me ringing like a bell,
                    I like you.

                    I like you, you're pretty great

                    to know you're there tomorow, I can hardly wait
                    your a shiny copper penny in the bottom of the pool
                    a double dipper sundae on a day when there's no school
                    (my suggestion)
                    I like you.

                    (whistle verse)


                    You're the kind of friend I need, to get me through the day

                    you're cool, you're neat, you're really sweet,

                    I like you, you make me laugh,

                    until you turn to go, you know that I will never leave

                    I like you
                    I like you
                    I like you


                    I like you, too, Jack!

                      Ha! I heard it that way when I listened before he posted the lyrics.

                      LCK, looks like you've got some competition in the whistle-verse department now. oke:

                        I don't know what that means, but I'm glad you to know we think alike (sometimes).

                        You always give very good advice.

                          OK, obviously I am a lyricist and not a melodist (just invented that word). That is why I'm chasing down you guys.

                          RE: lyrics.

                          How about this?

                          Verse 2

                          I like you, your freakin' great,
                          to know you're there tomorrow I can hardly wait
                          you're a shiny copper penny in the bottom of the pool,
                          a double dipper sundae on the final day of school

                          I like you.

                          Verse 3 (4 if you count the whistling)

                          I like you, you make me laugh,
                          your silly smile is just a giggle and a half
                          when you walk into the room I just cannot hold back a grin
                          You straighten out the day no matter what shape I been in
                          I like you.

                            First off, I like you too baby.

                            I really like this song, for the most part anyway. The melody seems a little flat to me. Maybe because it sounds like one of Rick Dieffenbach's tunes, only he always comes up with really, really good, really inventive tunes.


                            Ha. The Rick D. thing went through my head as well. Like Marshal, I was sort of waiting for a twist, but I wasn't bothered that it stayed a straightforward/sincere appreciation song. Production wise, I would get rid of the vocal double starting in the second verse (:35) - it was very surprising and took me out of the one guitar-one voice-live take place I was enjoying.

                              Thanks, man. I was referring to your suggested wording change to the double-dipper sundae line. Your suggested change is the way I thought I heard that line the first time I listened. I subconsciously corrected the slightly awkward original wording.
