The Songs Of Songwriter Glenn Shayne – ‘All Tied Up’
Review by Matt Wong & Wong
“All Tied Up” is a pop/rock song by Glenn Shayne. The song begins with Shayne’s powerful vocals supported by two acoustic guitars, and piano, with cymbal swells adding color to the arrangement. The melody is quite rhythmic and together with the acoustic guitars, makes the listener want to move to the music. The drums come in with the chorus, and the strong groove pulls the listener in completely.
The verse introduces a cool rhythmic motif played on electronic drums which adds interest to the song’s arrangement. The bridge features a drum breakdown, with synth sounds layered in. Groove and rhythm are truly driving this song.
The song’s lyrics describe the intoxicating scent of a woman’s perfume. Shayne sings about how he’s “bound in a situation by a fixation” with a woman, and how she “detonated an atomic bomb inside [his] heart.” The title of the song alludes to how he is “tied up” by this infatuation.
“All Tied Up” is an exceptional song, and easily establishes Glenn Shayne as a powerhouse in the songwriting world. In addition to his songwriting talent, Shayne is equally gifted as a vocalist, and listeners will appreciate his strong sense of time and feel.
