The Time Has Come

Description
I’ve been happy for far too long now (not), so I thought it was time for a bit of wallowing in the Blues. I’d more or less completed this with drum loops and was about to add bass, when I thought I’d give Scott (Scofugate) a call to see if he fancied adding some real drums and bass to my organ sound via midi (usual method of one track for left hand and the other for the right; can’t play both at once). Am I pleased that he agreed? Yes indeed: as it gave the song an added more natural emotional touch, as opposed to the rigid drum loops I’d originally used. I wasn’t really satisfied with my vocals, but with Scotts drum and bass added as well as the new mix he kindly made, it gave a whole new sound to it. Hope you like ‘the Blues’.

Lyrics
Time Has Come.
Intro. C/C7/ F/ Fm/C/E7//A7/G /G7
1.
C C7 F
Goin’ out at midnight, Comin’ home at dawn, it’s been goin’ on for far too long
Fm
A conclusion I have drawn.
C E7 A7
That the time has come when we should say goodbye.
F G C
I can’t take another moment of your lies lies.

2 C C7 F Fm
Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry, Sometimes I feel as though I’m

Gonna’ die,
F Fm
But you can never say, you can never say, that I did not try-y,
C E7 A7
To bring back all the love we used to know.
F G C (E7/ Am)
Now the time has come when one of us must go.

Middle
Am C7
I tried to understand you, but you’re playin’ a different game,
F Fm
Stayin’ out till the early hours, with excuses that were lame,
C E7 A7
I always let you think, that I was naïve,
F G7 C (G7)
‘Cause I tried to brush away, yes, I tried to brush away what I believed,

3 C C7
And now the time has come, when I just can’t go on,
F Fm
I’ve been through the mill, climbed up the hill, ‘cause I feel your love has gone,
C E7 A7
I’ve been round the block a time or two, but I just can’t find a way,
F G7 C
To make this work, so love can stay.
Repeat middle

Repeat verse 3.

Very nice
comment indeed Willy and very pleased with your compliments. As regards the chords, I'm just sorry that they all bunched up like that on uploading. I've added chords before to songs and for some reason they don't keep their position above the word...... anyway your musician enough to correct that, so thanks again, M

The Blues
Love the organ backing on this one. Your recordings are so crystal clear. Sounds great. Love the falsetto on "naive". Nice job!!

Very pleased
about your liking the organ as I really am no organist apart from a few chords and a good sense of harmony LOL and the falsetto I went for, I only just made. It's a case of variation in a song that's so slow, regards M

Doug Somers said 2788 days ago (October 6th, 2009)
Nice rendering of the Blues
This captures such a strong emotion in your voice. You really have been hitting a six with your new music Maurice. The choice to collab has definetely brought in a solid drum and bass line in this one. Kudos to you both, and thank you for expanding my blues library.

Cheers,
Doug

Cool unique vocals, and the organ makes it sound like you are singing at a fairground. You need to do a cabaret.

Glad you liked this Keith...... I did the cabaret and all that for about twenty odd years, so it's a case of 'Been there done that' LOL, couldn't stand the travelling now though.... and what's all this 'singing at a Fairground LOL'? What! as a 'Barker'?,(I laughed my socks off when I read that). You've been to some very classy Fairgrounds LOLOL. Thanks a lot for listening to this and for the nice comment, regards M

Maurice
this is just superb - wonderful lyrics that you make sound so believable (probably are?).
The organ sound so authentic and live and Scott's contributions are just spot on.
Never heard you singing so bluesy before and you nail it.
Downloaded. Thanks.

I know what you mean Dick as regards the longer it goes on. It's probably because I wasn't very confident in my voice or in having enough breath, but the further into the song the easier it got..... in fact it was a funny one to get the key right on, because for this I have to sing 'above' and 'below' the normal melody, in order to get the feeling. Glad you approve though, regards M

Trying your hand at the blues are you? Sounds pretty good to me. I think your vocals sound great and that signature vibrato in your voice is alive and kicking. It is wonderful that you can cross genres so easily and so well. Nice song Maurice - thanks for the share - Sig

Oh I have
been here before a few times as I do like to skip about in different genres (Used to have to do that when performing live). Your very kind with your comments about the vocal and my abilities and..... thank God you didn't mis-spell genres LOL. I wondered what you were going to say when I saw the words 'cross-genres' .......Just one added 'D' and my reputation would have been gone forever LOL, regards M

all about mood
the note you hit on naive is lovely and the organ tones sound great.
great idea putting up the chords with the lyrics because I just know that MJ folk will be playing along with you.
I haven't yet mentioned how great the tune is. It an emotional song that's well delivered.
However, I would like to have heard a little more dynamics throughout but then again I don't listen to much blues of this vein.
