Default Re: Timothy B. Schmit Song Survivor: Leap of Faith

Well - I'm sorry to see Goodbye, My Love go down so soon, but doesn't seem like there's any way to save it. One of the things I like about it is that it is very melodic. Anyway, I'm going again for my least favorite ...

I cast my vote for It's Alright.

This game after the first two rounds has left me behind. Goodbye, My Love was in my top two. And I would have thought most TBS fans would see It's Alright as one of his classic ballads.

Oh well. What I Should Do again.

I'm surprised by the reaction to It's Alright for the same reason, FP.

I like "It's Alright" as well. It has some really lovely lyrics such as "When your fingers brush my face [...] I'm the canvas that you paint." I love that.

We're at the point where I pretty much like all the other songs to varying degrees, so it gets challenging.

I think I'll wait and see what others are thinking!

I like the lyrics to It's Alright too, but I'm just not that crazy about the music and melody. On the other hand, I think What I Should Do is terrific. I just love the background vocals.

I've narrowed it down to either "All Those Faces" or "I Refuse." Learning towards the latter.

The thing about "All Those Faces" is that I feel like I've heard the melody of the verses before. Has anyone else noticed that the verses sound very similar to an older song of Tim's, or am I just experiencing deja vu?

"All Those Faces" and "I Refuse" are tied for the top spot on my list! If the final were to come down to those two I'm not sure which I would choose.

I feel like a few of his songs sound quite similar actually.

Ah, I have to choose a new song.

I choose Pearl On The String. It's a nice song, but all the other remaining songs have something that, for me, raises them to a slightly higher level. I do like the middle 8 of Pearl On The String. But, all the other songs have something that I really like too. It was close with This Waltz, but I've decided to keep the 3/4 song in

It's a very consistent album, so it's difficult to make choices.
