Lyrics
I Dance My Way To You

When we danced at our school
And we'd float across the dance floor
It was fun drifting far apart
When we knew by the end
We'd be back together

At the close of that song
When I split for employment
It was fun being on my own
Living life, chasing dreams
And finding a purpose

Many years have gone by
I forgot all about us
And our song on the radio
It doesn't sing to my soul
I've heard it too many times

Every day
There's a million lives
There's a million lies
That we can tell to ourselves
Many days, many ways
The water under the bridge
But, I always knew
I'd dance my way to you

(c)2009 Bill Grundmann

high school musical
this is great Bill. nice easy build. i like the electro pop 80's new wave structure.

why is it when we get older we start remembering the past a bit clearer.

check around Friday or so for another version of this - for the LIOLI9

dancefloor. yes, it's true, the past seems more brilliant than the present - odd, that.

thanks

Nice
Love the start with the harp and strings. I like the guitar the follows the loop. Nice build up and good progression. Cool track Smokey, enjoyed.

glad you liked it

the progression treats the loop as a drone. lots of possibilities in that space

Bill,
Very moody and evocative piece that really makes the recitation. This is really cool. I heard the song first, but wanted to listen to this before commenting on that (if that makes any sense). This is really wonderful stuff.

Actually took me back to the Thriller album. You should try out a Vincent Price impression on it :). Can't wait to hear the next bit. On my way now...

multi-layering
I like the way you offset the loops to create a rhythm,,, and the spoken word and the acoustic thrown in, I like the sentiment of this and when it kicks into the backbeat at 2:15 it really says to me - hey, life keeps going, get on or get off.... nice entry, dub!
Check out my latest song called Tommy Cat
SmokeyVW said 2837 days ago (August 21st, 2009)
.
i used the offsets to mimic the two layers of echo present in the loop. but i also spread them out using some panning (some actually move during the intro).

when it finally kicks into the main beat it's sort of an echo of the guy's memory of dancing so many years ago.

thanks for listening and for the thoughtful comments

H.S. reunion - : )
Of the two versions, this is my favorite. The lyrics are introspective and nostalgic and.... I don't know... I just think the whole song is "way cool" Bill. : ) Cheetah - that's a malaprop isn't it? : )

Amazing as always
I always have liked your approach on your "spoken word with music" submissions and this one is no exception. Love the changes and really like the drum track and how it comes in. Powerful images in the poem that would really make a good song.

i had a lot of trouble trying to get the tone of voice right. i'm sort of happy with this one, but i suspect the version i had in my head would have sounded to contrived. but who knows? what is art anyway?

thanks

it just so happens i also made a song (well, at least there's a some sung lyrics in it) as my second entry to LIOLI9...

Let me sit down
and hear this again. Ive listened to it about five times now and I keep discovering intriquing, haunting textures that underscore the extraordinarily poignant pull of the piece.

Most of the demented geniuses have gone off in crazy directions with this, but your demented genius made me want to go sit on the front porch, drink a cold beer in the rain and curse all the missed moments that could have been.

Bugger amazing, you. D-loaded and already in heavy rotation on Mordenus Radio.

An original take on this loopy project
and quite distinct in mood from the few others I've heard so far. Nice job. (I think I prefer this version but it may be because we both spoke lyrics rather than singing them.) Cheers.

i can never decide whether the vox is too loud or too soft - it's not like i didn't try to set it just right, it's a conundrum - too loud is way more annoying than too soft in my opinion, so perhaps i err on the side of down 1.5 dB...

thanks
