About This Song


The title came from a conversation I had with a friend. This person was relating to someone that they had run into an old lover and realized they still had feelings for them. The friend they were talking to said "well sounds like they stirred something up, now what are you going to do?"

Feedback Requested


Everything is fair game. It's all about making the song better. Just don't be a dick.

Hi Steve,

I like your voice, you are a pretty good singer!  This song idea is rather popular and to stay out, you have to work hard to distinguish from other songs with the same theme.  That being said I’m missing some original images here. Regarding the melody I have to say the verse and chorus section could have a better separation from each other, they sound quite similar. 
Keep on writing! -  Frank

I think this is a pretty solid song. I was glad he stood up for himself at the end saying, leave, don’t come back around here. I was kind of mad at the lady and thinking why does he still have sentimental feelings if she was unfaithful? All in all a very solid song but it does need a little something extra, maybe more of a resolution and a dynamic sound, maybe through a bridge or a climb. I enjoyed the classic sound and that it does have a universal theme but it still had a good balance between being universal and original. Just needs a little something extra, but you do sing it very nicely.

You’ve Stirred Something Up

You’ve Stirred Something UP
©2018 Steve Parry



It’s been a long time
Now you walk through my door
You caught me off guard
And shaken to the core

I minded my own business
When you left me for him
Now I’m trying hard to hold back
And not fall apart again

Chorus
You’ve stirred somethin’ up
What am I gonna do
You’ve been taken by another
But I’m still in love with you
I can’t fool myself
And have feelings that ain’t real
Why’d you go and walk in now
Just when I’ve begun to heal

You looked at right me
Like a ghost from the past
Bet you didn’t realize
How long my love would last

Why don’t you turn around
And walk back out the door
Don’t ever come back in here
I don’t want this feeling anymore

Chorus
Last ½ Chorus
