Artmarcia, and others: I think the GrooveLily experience is greatly enhanced by seeing them live! I first saw them live 2 and 1/2 years ago, and was immediately hooked. I have been to nearly 30 live performances since then, and have loved every one of them. There is a sort of magic between the three of them, when seen live, that is difficult to capture on an audio CD. Although my plans are not in place yet, I do hope to attend at least one of the shows in NYC this September, as they perform their great holiday show, Striking 12, in order to record it for a future audio CD. I look forward to meeting Artmarcia, and any others that might attend. Go see a live performance by GrooveLily... they're really GRRRREAT ! MrEd
Yeah, I totally agree...my friend saw them live a few years ago and made me listen to their cd's, but I wasn't too impressed...but then seeing them live myself, helped, A LOT. Which is why their more recent Live album is definetly the pick of the lot...I should upload some tracks from that and see if people enjoy that more.

Are you familiar with belle & sebastian? I just got their Dear Catastophic Waitress CD and it occured to me that some of the same people who thought GL's music was too upbeat might feel the same way about belle & sebastian, or The Divine Comedy, who for me took more than a first time hearing, but now I like. Sure enough. I just looked at some of the comments for b&s and The Divine Comedy and they got some similar comments to GrooveLily, especially belle & sebastian. There's even a comment from myself from 3 months ago that shows my lack of appreciation for b&s.

Sorry Marcia, but this one doesn't do much for me. :yawn: On the plus side, it didn't have me racing for the volume knob to turn it down! :lol:
Give it some time Steve. :) Some people "get" GrooveLily right away, others take a couple hearings before it kicks in. They are such an original band. If I can develop an appreciation for Tom Waits, this should be a snap. I have faith.

Ah, I haven't rated that one yet! Maybe play that tomorrow! ;)
The people have spoken- no hanging chads here. https://www.radioparadise.com/modules/Forums/images/smiles/icon_crashcomp.gif :frustrated:

If Mary Tyler Moore ever gets a show again, this would be a perfect theme song...
This is the sort RP song I'd use for a quick bathroom break. Does nothing for me.

It sounded like something I saw on "Happy Days" a long time ago... Eh..

Wow, the rating dropped in half after the numbe of reviewers went from 9 to 32. Looks like the main channel listeners have no patience for this. I gotta admit, I gave it a 2. I don't see the attraction.
The first 9 were all GrooveLily "partisans" who voted before the song aired.
Agree that it sounds alot like a commercial jingle. FIRST thing I thought !
yikes. sitcom hits it on the head. Like the musical version of a Thomas Kinkade painting. Positive but without soul.
Is it over yet? Oh yeah, it is. .. yippee!
It was "OK", Just "OK" - I'll ive it a 5
Mmmm. No thank you. Just lame. Lackluster. Hackneyed. Mildly annoying. <-( Has kind of a mid-nineties alt-rock/dave matthews/blues traveler vibe to it somewhere underneath there. But not as good as good, of course. As others have said, it is absolutely like a commercial jimgle or theme to a sitcom no one wants to watch. C-rate at best. I would not mind if I never heard this band again.
:beat: trite indeed.
I almost didn't realize the song had ended...
"meh."
If I hadn't been previously warned, I would most definitely be listening to a different station
Commercial jingles can make a good living for a musician. Damn, that was harsh. Sorry This isn't terrible, but it's not remarkable in any way. Kinda like crossover country in the 80's.

The tempo feels rushed to me, and the lead vocalist seems enthusiastic but unconvincing.
I agree with Bill and Rebecca...nothing special here. I mean it's not bad, but the vocals and lyrics are sub-par in my opinion. Too simplistic for my tastes. I give it a "middle of the road" rating. Does not work for me...
Are they indie? I think they're packaged for the youngster market. My kids may like them though....
The name of this band should be Cliché.
I actually thought it was a commercial when it first started. Then I remembered that I was listening to RP.mig7 wrote:

Great comment. Absolutely on target! Bill asks for feedback, and clearly lots of folks are listening.
Yeah, this ain't my bag baby! After Bill's intro, I really tried to give it a shot. I stared at my feet trying to get them to tap a bit, but no success. It's a song that wants to be likeable, but doesn't quite get there.

Let's see how many clichés we can fit into 2.5 minutes. Wait, I heard another one in the college coffeehouse last night.
To me it sounds like a really good song for a musical. OK, not great.
wow. that blew.
No, we're not there yet. Maybe after they complete the Songwriting 102 course...
I'd give it a 'eh', its 'ok'. They have some interesting lyrics but they dont have an orginal sound. It DOES sound like sitcom music. Try 'Casino Nation' by Jackson Browne.
I think this sounds good on paper: Lots of good ideas, average execution, overreaching production. Contrast with My Morning Jacket's sparse instrumentation and I think outstanding feel. This feels jumbly. Bill just intro'd this track and I must say his hesitation is understandable. Nothing here makes me happy.
It doesn't really fit with the other music you play at RadioParadise.com. Ick!
Ok.. so this sort of sounds like the theme to a sit com like "Friends". Kinda goofy.. but it gets me moving. :motor:
Well, with Bill's intro, I just had to put the work down and listen to it. I'm about 2/3rds through it now, and I have to say... Eh. I mean, there's a fiddle. Yay. The fiddle is mediocre. The lead singer has an interesting voice, but the rhythm is tiresome and gets dull pretty fast. There's no variation, no real 'spark' to it. It's very formulaic. I hope their other stuff is more interesting.
not a fan of groovelily
have to agree with rp -- think it sounds pretty substandard and the lyrics are a little cliche. it sounds like something you'd hear on a mix for a wb family show.
Very average song. I think band member's family and friends were hyping it to get air time.
The musical part is interesting, but the lyrics are way too contrived!

This is one of my favorite GrooveLily songs and that's saying something since I love nearly all of them. The phrase that hooks me is "...they crashed the planes and changed the rules...." I have to agree that since 9/11, I tend to look at life just a little differently and I definitely try to appreciate what I have a little bit more. I'm so very far from perfect but by believing in Jesus and trying to do His work, I know that if death comes by surprise (like it did for so many on that terrible day), I am assured of where I'll be going. I hope we get to see a lot more GrooveLily on RP! Rob-B wrote:

This is one of my favorite GrooveLily songs. I love the electric violin on this song.
