Hey It's Me Lyrics

Postby The_Noble_Cause » Fri Apr 28, 2017 12:33 am

Some very pointed lyrics on new Bobby solo tune aimed at his former band.
Reading the liner notes...."Out the door in 84".."On the road being told, now the band feels real cold"..."only one to hit that note, brought back what they lack"..."five percent with no consent."

Anybody notice anything else?

I added it to my Apple Music library to listen to later, but honestly just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Don't give a fcuk about Bobby's record, as he doesn't give a fcuk about Toto's legacy.

That's the song that lifts the chorus from "Hey Mrs. Johnson" (Toto Track from Toto XX)

Do you have the full lyrics?

That's fair. It's a good album tho.

Eh, aside from Bobby singing the word "Hey", the songs don't sound very similar. Can't find lyrics online. I'll post it.

What I don't like is the obvious "Luke wannabe" guitarist. Totally ripping off Luke's style.

Technically, good but...nah. Not for me.

Agreed. BTW, speaking of guitar, did I stumble on a video of you comparing a Mesa RA to a Mark V a month or two ago? Same user name, and I'm pretty certain you're a player. Left a message on the video, but the vid was a few years old, so maybe you didn't see (if it was you).

Luke is a one of a kind. I don't hear any attempts to rip-off his sound. I think the album has it's own sound . Soul pop with alot of brass and even some country influences.

We'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

IMO, he is totally trying to emulate Luke's tone, phrasing, note choices...trying to "one up" him too by how fancy he (or she...I have no idea who is playing on the tracks) tries to be.

I think it was intentionally done too.

I don't hear it, but I respect your opinion. If he wanted to rip-off TOTO he would have used Tommy Denander and re-recorded the hits or something. Last album Bobby did with Zaika "All I Ever Needed" also had its own sound.

By choice or no promo copy sent to you? The Bobby/TOTO feuding aside, this is a good album. Some obvious pitch correction, but great melodies. Ask Zaika to send you one
