Biography

Hello!

I've been a pro bass player for thirty-five years and have probably played most of the top popular tunes that have been written, as well as having done my share of bizzare gigs, concerts, casuals, showcases, commercials, dealing with traumatic soundmen, producers who like purple bass lines and clients blowing cigar smoke in my lead singers face while admiring her hips.

I've written and composed music all of my life, and have been impressed by the effects that a killer dance song has on an audience. I've played classical gigs where people were swooned, or snored, by wonderful or not-so-wonderful music and shows with sexy dancers and the whole shot. But when a classic rock or whatever--style-great-beat-dance tune slams into a bunch of eardrums at a party people seem to go free. I like that.

I wanted to both contribute to the happiness of as many people that I could as well as make as much money as I can so decided to write a commercial rock song targeting primarily the Baby Boomerish era.

Why not?

So I studied up on the key elements of all of these tunes I've been playing for years and cranked out "Right Where I Want."

I hope you like it, and thanks for listening!

Lyrics

Right Where I Want

Written By: Marty Buttwinick

I first met you many years ago, but I didn’t quite know what to say.
I had an instant desire with my heart on fire ‘cause I knew that I would have you one day.

You were the perfect one--just for me, and I knew that soon the time would come.
That we would finally hook up, it was meant to be. And no longer would I have to run.

And yes I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.
And yes I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.

One day I saw you from across the room, and I knew you saw me too.
From the look in your eyes I knew the time had come, for both of our dreams to come true.

And now I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.
And now I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.

(Instrumental)

You are that special one, made for me. And I know that I was made just for you.
Everything is/fits so right, every day and every night, now both of dreams have come true.

Here in my mind and in my soul I feel complete in every way.
Forever, together baby you and me. We’ll be together until judgment day.

Because I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.
Because I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.

Because I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.
Because I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.

Because I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.
Because I finally got you, finally got you right where I want.

Right where I want.

I got you right where I want.

Right where I want.
