Ooh L'amour

Description
My first submission was a slow ballad about losing my faith, I figure it's only fitting my second submission be a light, uptempo love song to my beautiful wife, Lisa.
It's a day in the life of love, or more apt - love in the life of a day.

Lyrics
VERSE 1
Welcome to the morning
The light of dawn’s upon your face
Lips pout sadly as in mourning
Turn your eyes toward me
Never doubt I’ll be
Your a’mour

VERSE 2
The sun at midday rises
Beaming down upon the gods at play
Moulding clay into a few surprises
Aphrodite’s art
Brought you to my heart
Oh L’amour


CHORUS
Ohh L’amoure’
Oh my love
Oh my Lisa
Can’t get enough
Gone through hell and back
For your love
Ohh L’amour x 2

BRIDGE
A day can last for a lifetime
A lifetime can be but a day
Cause we are living in forever
For there is no time
Yeah, there is no time
for us but now

VERSE 3
Million moonbeams light the way
To cast their spells upon the earth
Pull of love keeps gravity bayed
Broader than the skies
Beyond the stars we’ll rise
Oh L’amour

This is a top notch pop rock song. Very well performed and produced.
Great guitar tone. Perfect drums. Cool vocal harmonies and lead vocals. Nice arrangement around 3:00 going a semitone up.
Welcome to MacJams! Keep them coming.

I really appreciate your comments. As you're probably well aware, it can be a lonely corner of the room when you write for yourself. Feedback is critical. Thank you

Top notch
welcome to the jams .. fine post. Excellent vocals .. listening on wee laptop speakers at the mo .. much vocals in the mix .. backing perhaps makes it a little cluttered but awesome chorus. Reminded me of Neil Diamond a bit. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much
I'm really pleased to make contact with you here :) Music is new to me, but when something burns in your heart and head - you have to get it out either on canvas or track and I know everyone here feels the same way. What a fun and safe environment.

Another good one
This one just rolls along sweetly with shafts of glory emanating as it goes. And what a perfect subject, the "love of your wife/life". Great to hear your musical side too, and look forward to seeing your artwork... can't go wrong with Dali as inspiration :-)
ttfn,
Drakonis

Very Cool
You are close to something here. This could be the moments before a storm of perfect songs. It's like the Arcade Fire. It has so much great stuff it just makes you smile. I hope you get my drift. Great work.

Si
Very well done song. Excellent vocals and great tone. Amazing how well you picked up recording technique. Your sound is quite good on this. I have recorded over 60 songs and still cant seem to get it right. Then again, if you are starting with something good, it is much easier to finish with something good. Well done!

st_victor said 2601 days ago (February 13th, 2010)
recording is a lot like painting
I do them the same way, laying down a sketch to get the tempo and timing, then drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, lead vox then backing all on individual tracks taken at different times depending on schedule and inspiration and ultimately mixed, but each song takes me about a month.

Hook, line and sinker
Drawn in by the guitar tone... captured by the vocals and lyrics. I especially like the phrasing of the chorus- quite a catchy hook.

Love the Chorus!
The chorus is irresistible: your creative method seems to be working mightily! I could have done without the electric guitar doubling the vocal line in the first verse: your singing more than stands alone. Who's doing your backing vox--they're just perfect for the song...

st_victor said 2591 days ago (February 23rd, 2010)
Hey Michael
Yeah, I agree with the doubling of the guitar, it comes on a little heavy to start - I'll mix that down when I get back to it - good advice!
My friend Michelle does all my backing vocals, I usually lay three tracks for her so she can layer her harmonies and I do all the soft support usually one or two simple tracks. BTW - I love Walt Disney's Hands!

Well
I really enjoyed your first song, and then your art so had to come back to see if you'd put any thing else up and I'm not disapointed. Can't think who this reminds me of. All I know is I've played it twice and now have the melody firmly stuck in my head! Well done. Cheers Mark

Sorry about the sticking in your head part - my wife hates any song that does that to her (she's still haunted by "two all beef patties special sauce lettuce cheese pickles onions on a sesame seed bun)

Vic
Very nice. Original style. I really appreciate the singing. Sort of Bowie-esqe, but yet your own(I Like David Bowie, by the way). I really appreciate artists that craft their own style. Good production too.
Thanks,
Stephen

Ooh L'amour
Cool tune. Oddly enough this song reminds me of a band from the 70's called "Sweet". I like your style, and I can totally relate to writing about the love of your life.

Welcome to MJ - enjoyed listening to your work-
