Tangled in Love

I really don’t know what genre anyone would call my music other than “More Stuff by RJ.” I imagine that every musician is a bit unique. Jazz musicians may very well stand out as being the most individual while country artists seem to go for the same sound over and over. Without a Southern accent and the basic Nashville musicians cranking out the songs, it would be difficult to brand one as being “country” in this day and age.

The lyrics are country-like. The melodies and backup, many would say is close to the current Christian genre.

“The Gold of Mansa Musa” artwork accompanies the music today. The novel is a sweeping romantic Egyptian adventure and is available worldwide. This is the second installment of the “Seeds from Heaven” series. This novel would not be published today if it were not from the support of my fellow HUB writers. Thank you.

Now I’ve had so little time

To do things that were on my mind.

I had it all thought out

Left no room for doubt

That love must pass me by!

I broke many a heart in two

Thought I could tear away from you.

I should have known from the very start

That someone like you would come into my heart

Make me feel good, make me feel high!

Now I’m strangled, TANGLED IN LOVE

You’re my life all I’m dreaming of.

You’ve stolen my heart

Torn my world apart

I’m hopelessly strangled, TANGLED IN LOVE!

2. Now I’ve got you on my mind.

My life is no longer mine

I planned it all so neatly

Watched it fall apart completely

Fall apart, all apart.

Now my plans are all undone

Wonder what my life will become?

Guess it was a matter of time

You’d come down the line

And strangle, tangle my heart!

To Chorus—Repeat Chorus— To coda





You might enjoy these songs too.

Politick'n --Get upset and laugh at the same time!

Goody Goody Gumdrop-- bubble gum rock from the sixties

Deep Blue Water -- beautiful romantic tune

      Really? From now on I'll tell everyone I write "Melodic Contempory Jazz" and watch their jaw drop as the scratch their heads and ask, "What the heck is that?" I'll send'm here. Thank you for finding a genre for this.

      "Melodic Contemporary Jazz," has a nice ring to it, but either way, it is a beautiful composition; relaxing, but yet progressive. One up and beautiful!

      No tangling for me! On a side note, I go over my manuscripts all the time and worked on 1-9 this weekend and found a double paragraph in chapter 4...Akk! ( and many smaller typos) that you would have run across. Ignore errors, as it can only interfere with a proper reading. A good action chapter is coming up for you with Detective Ahman in chapter 11. Thanks for hanging in there. LOL

      Great song. Great title.

      I think it is very easy to get "Tangled in Love."

      I just finished reading chapter 8 of Mansa Munsa. Crockett was visited by the Russians.

      On to Cairo next for more adventure. What awaits? Can't wait to find out.

      I did these in 1986 in a Detroit studio where Aretha Franklin did a lot of recordings. Thank you for stopping by. This was before everything went digital and most of what you hear in the last two decades is done from computers.

      R.Jay, another I found enjoyable, are these recorded by a studio or do you have your own set up? I'm aware of recording costs so that is why I ask, Peace Dusty

      thanks Cardisa--I just went and copied your Jamacian slang from one of your HUBS. Yep--Don't know how to describe my stuff. Don't be surprised if the slang ends up in my HUBS and songs!
