Description
“Something I can’t take”
Writen by thoddi (Thor Oliversen)

This very happening song was sent to me by thoddi and so we collaborated on some ideas together. Thor posted the finished version on his page
http://www.macjams.com/song/42748
with a great new intro I hadn’t herd.
His intro inspired my intro, or should I say, I ripped his idea off, but failed to achieve what he did, so, I got what I got.
Anyway….
This song, inspires me to no end. The lyric and the tune just got me hooked. I kept playing with it and asked Thor if I could post another version. ??? He gave me a little nudge to sing the song myself so here goes…
With all the human vulnerabilities laid out in my voice for all to hear.
Thoddi plays
…Guitars and Bass, also he does awesome Drum programing
And I do vocals and keys. I also added some drum loops and played some digital drum kit stuff
“Something I Can’t Take”
Written by Thor Oliversen aka thoddi
Check out his newest post “Just Now” it’s a must!
I may not be done with this song (just a warning)
Thank you Thor, you make it easy.
Peace

Lyrics
"Something I can’t take"
by Thor Oliversen/thoddi

There is a cold, cold wind

Blowing in my face

And it’s coming from a place

I have never been

It carries a smell of hate

And all that rage

It makes me turn against that wind

It's something I can’t take


And it goes on and on

It never seems to fade

And it goes on and on

It never seems to fade

It’s something I can’t take


If I look the other way

The warm wind tells me to stay

All the hate will go away

Just look the other way


And it goes on and on

It never seems to fade

And it goes on and on

It never seems to fade

It’s something I can’t take

something I CAN take:)
I have said it before, and will say it again - you have a fab singing voice my friend! Again you give me a motown feeling. Everything you have put in this comes out cool.

I really dig that you wanted to work on this song and put some Timothy soul into it.

Thanks a lot.

This is a very cool song/from a very hip creator

Well Tim
I've listened to both and I'll be darned if I can decide which I like better. They're both great tracks, his a little more acoustic, yours a little more out there.

Maybe I'll just say this, they're both great track with some awesome lyrics and a very cool vibe.

Very good collab from both of you.

what I like of this version is the dual vocals. Really takes on the Blue Eye Philly sound of Hall & Oates.

Special Sauce
Love the drums. Don't hear them too often in these parts. Its got that G-Love groove to it. Love the rhodes and soulful guitar riffs and how it drifts and comes back around and lands back into that groove. Oh... its over? Seems like an old-school 7 - 10 minute long song. =) Nice work.

HelloBuddy
How the heck r u.
Its great to see u stop in.
I enjoy this song so much.
I Figure you could appreciate the different changes in the instrumental part, which Thor does so naturally. The solo goes up a step and then into some maj7ths very cool the way it comes back.
All thoddi!
I just played and sang...
check out his version. He sings on his page...different version also with some tim vocals and keys.
peace
thanks for you visit

Nice take ....
.. now am I trying to say "cosmopolitan" or "metropolitan" feel to it .... but it has that "driving in the city in the evening sound" ... I like your use of multiple vocal tracks .. but I am a fan of that sound ... and you are great at getting the mix right.

Hi Steve
Thanks for checking this out.
This was a proud moment for me. I previously worked with thoddi on a multi collab holiday tune (The same herd).

Out o the blue he asked me to work on this and he posted a version on his page.
I then asked him if i could mess with it and got this...
glad you enjoyed it.
This was a tone of fun
peace out
