I like this! Definitely a retro 80s vibe in a good way. Some chorus-y guitar tones would take it all the way there, total Cure vibe. Well done man!

Pretty darn cool. I really like the vibe.
I listened a few days ago too and it kinda stayed with me. That's a good sign.
If you want feedback on lyrics, I'd suggest posting the written lyrics.

I'll say one thing: for someone who disavows any musical education, you have an amazing ear to be able to craft a song that sounds to me like an excellent composition. Great job!

Hi everyone. So a few people from Muse Songwriters recommended I check out Taxi and start pitching my songs. I'm 41 years old, not musically or vocally trained, don't know how to play any instruments, but have been dabbling with Fruity Loops for a bit. I did just got an electric guitar like 2 weeks ago but that's going to take a while for me to understand. For now, I've been plucking the strings and piecing things together that sound good to me. In general, I worked with two producers. One for like a year just as a songwriter and once in a blue I would help with arrangement. The other for 2 songs lol. Aside from that, I've just been making demos on my own that one day I hope other people will polish and perform. This is my latest demo with me using my guitar. Give me all the thoughts you want. Thank you!
I read your post and at first was like "Oh boy, this is going to be ROUGH...." But after listening, this is actually really good, and you definitely have an ear and instinct for this! Best of luck to you Dude!

Mate, as you said you are not musically or vocally trained and that's why we can do "simple silly" songs sound authentic and good!
Something that lots of producers (me included) struggle to do it, because our inner instinct or (maybe ego) always want to do something more challenge and complex.
So keep the momentum and write as much as you can!
Enjoy the ride!
Good luck!
