About This Song


This is an old 1999 recording of a song I never released. I think it has potential that's why I'm sharing it before I update the sound recording.

Feedback Requested


Lyrical it needs some work I know. The melody sounds dated and the recording is old. Is it worth a redo for an indie artist out there or should I just file it away for another 18 years?

Ronnie… I love this retro stuff here. Great soundtrack too! And I like the hook line “Trying To Forget” Ha ha ha

If you haven’t updated it yet, your voice was great for a basic demo but this song is worthy of a pro to come in and really give it some punch. You already have the great soundtrack.

And another reason I say to get a pro’s voice is that we never know, but I am thinking the market is due for a correction and a “return to country music” within country music, similar to the rebellion in the 1980s. And this song would be perfect in its retro state of mind.

I like this one.

Trying To Forget

Written by Ronnie Glenn

Last night I was caught up in another lonely time
If I was bound in happiness I'd let myself unwind
But her memory keeps haunting me
And my vision's going to heck
Yeah I may be living but I'm TRYING TO FORGET

Today I thought it was over like a bad dream to score
Just tossing and turning came her memory back for more
When I hear her name I feel the pain
'Cause no shot has taken affect
Yeah I may be living but I'm TRYING TO FORGET

CHORUS
Now don't worry I'm doing alright
Can't you see it on my face
If I reckon for the last time
Thoughts of her I could erase
With every turn there's a lesson learned
And some are full of regret
Though I'm losing her, I'm TRYING TO FORGET

CHORUS

MUSIC BREAK

CHORUS

Even though I'm losing her, I'm TRYING TO FORGET
