Description
Hello to all Macjammers,
It has been a long time since I actually have done something new , due to lack of time and other things that have popped up along the way. So, when my uncle Len told me that there is a thing going on on Macjams where you can upload some of your old staff (redone, re-recorded) I thought why not! So, we have decided to redo" Falling) one of Len's earliest songs. Hope you guys enjoy it!!!!!

Len Gold: I hope it's alright to post this on Becca's page even though it was originally on mine. This was a song written during my first 'active' year on MJ's.
I have re-mixed the song in Logic and played around a bit with it.
I am so pleased that Becca wanted to add her wonderful vocal to it.

Lyrics
I Thought it Was Indigestion
So I Took Some Medication
But the Pain Still Remained
I Had Just One Suggestion
And It Was All Explained
The Answer To The Question

I'm Falling, Crawling, Sprawling, In Love
I'm Crumbling, Fumbling, Stumbling, In Love
I'm Spilling, Chilling, Willing, In Love

How Could I Ever Doubt It
I Might As Well Just Submit
The Feeling Wasn't Illness
I Just Don't Have The Wit
Like a Home With No Address
A Blaze With Nothing Lit

I'm Falling, Crawling, Sprawling, In Love
I'm Crumbling, Fumbling, Stumbling, In Love
I'm Spilling, Chilling, Willing, In Love

Great vocals and lyrics, but then when the guitar came it, it really kicked it into gear. Very nice change of pace. Great submission for the fest. Enjoyed it very much!

this has a haunting sound that captures the anxiety of falling in love - the odd percussions really adds to the feeling.

comparison
the original was muffled, but the song and lyrics were strong. this version clarifies the mix, and becca's singing gives a more emotive delivery. well worth revisiting this gem, and so well done. 0x0

Tic toc
Lovely song, and great vocals. Please remove those weird drums? I can't make sense of what rhythm they are trying to play, I don't like the sound, and I don't think this song needs them.

Ouch. Guitar solo: great playing, too forward in the mix, and the bass and drums under them are too thin. Is that a slap bass sample? I only hear the high frequencies.

lengold said 2843 days ago (February 4th, 2010)
You can't please
everyone Vic, so I just mix until I (and, in this case Becca) like the sound and then just hope that other people will like it too. You are correct about Becca's great vocals.
Cheers

Your vocals make this a treat. You have a great ability to bring through multiple emotions in one go from a single phrase. I'm sure uncle Len is very pleased!

Cheers,
Doug

Nice one
Firstly - I like the simplicity of the songwriting and I mean that in a good way. And the vocals are really good - smooth and sultry.

There are a few things that stick out, though...

1) The piano sounds a bit weird to me, somehow. I think it's that the vocals have a bit of reverb but the piano seems to have none - or at least a lot less. It somehow creates a sense of friction between environments and moods... if you know what I mean :)

2) That kick drum (I'm assuming that's a kick drum) is far too thin and weak for my taste - so much that the song really nice some lower end.

3) It was a nice surprise to hear the guitar - something I didn't expect. I also like your sense of dynamics when you fall back to just the piano and brass.

4) I know that this is really just pedantic nit-picking on my part but I really loathe the GB brass, and most software brass in fact. I know that there's not much you can do about it. I just thought I'd let you know :P

Anyway - just my 5 cents.

Your vocals are the star of this song and you rightly emphasize that.

Nice job!

-Einar S.

Haunting melody
amazing how strong becca's voice sounds considering (at least by the description) that she hasnt been singing. Crazy. Loved the melody going on in this song. The guitars about startled me out of my chair when they came in. Not 100% sure I would have done the guitar part quite so loud,gainy and dissonant but either way, it is a very good song. Fav'd and downloaded.

Beautiful and unforgettable
Love your singing Becca. Love it. Sweet.
I was thinking about how good the song is that only the voice and the piano was needed to make it outstanding. Then the guitar solo... no more simplicity. I love powerful guitars and guitar solos, and I love to be surprised too, but in this case I guess a simpler more intimate solo would have been more appropriate. Anyway, the writing, the singing and the solo make this song unforgettable.

Oh My
you have a wonderful singing voice my dear! I like the 1st part of the song best, guitar threw me a bit, Im not sure if that part works for me, however I am a fan of the unexpected, so I will give it another listen or two.
Overall tho, this is a good song , very different.

Wow, very nice
A very cool collab. Becca has really added another dimension to the original. The first guitar blast came in at a bit of a scarey suddeness, however the song as a whole is very good. Nice one.
