Thread: Would you consider this song Country?

    Default Would you consider this song Country?

    My singing is not really country, but the background music is country-ish.

    So what genre would you consider this song, country?? or not?

    here's the link:


    I wrote this song about my Dad about a year after he died.

    And if it's not country, what genre would you consider this?

    How about this song?
    The story line is country-ish I think


    Like the song above, it's also a song I wrote about my Dad after he died, except I changed the story around so that it's about the loss of a mother instead because I was writing too many songs about my Dad, I thought I needed a change

    How about this song?

    The storytelling and visual imagaery are definitely country, but how about overall??

    WARNING: this song may make you cry, especially if you know a disabled person, or have a loved one in a nursing home, like I did. I've had several people start crying right in front of me while I played this song for them, which surprised me, and then I figured I guess it must be a good song if it makes people cry :-(



    So is it country?
    or not?

    EDIT: I changed the text in the original video, so I deleted the original on YouTube and uploaded a newer version, that's why the original version link disappeared

    I just posted this, is this country?

    The storyline is country, I think. Probably the music too.

    Is this song kinda country?
    This is a new song I wrote, I think the storyline is country, in that it tells a story in a conversational manner.
    Here's the link on YouTube:

    Funny that you should mention that, because I was thinking about creating a Vimeo account because they allow higher quality playback of videos. But that will take time to upload videos, and where I live in Honolulu, Oceanic Time Warner cable has slow a** cable speed, in fact I actually get disconnected sometimes. I thought it was just me, but I found out that two of my friends who also have Oceanic are also getting disconnected, it's been going on for months too!!
    Anyway, thanks!

    I've got two more songs that have a sort of country lyrics style, one is a new song, the other from a while ago. They are both story songs in a conversational style--
    Here's the newer song:

    and the following song tends to bring people to tears before the end of the first chorus, I think because that last line in the chorus is unexpected to most people:
