When She's Gone

Description
Sherman, set the Wayback Machine to 1990ish for the next tune...

This one is from back in my college days and my time playing with the band Psychic Pilgrimage. We did a lot of Beatles tunes with a number of originals mixed in. This was my attempt to try and create an original that kind of fit in with our Beatles and classic rock catalog.

I've recorded it before, but for reasons I can remember, I used synth guitars and bass and the result was less than satisfactory. I've been going down memory lane here lately, so I decided I wanted to do this one "right", or at least as "right" as possible. The sound is kind of a 60s and 80s mix and I really laid on the vocal harmonies. The lyrics are what they are, just your basic luv tune. The nice thing is that I feel inspired to do this kind of tune again. :)

It's a fairly short tune, just under three minutes, but it accomplishes what it needs to in that time.

Take a listen and I hope you enjoy!

Lyrics
When She’s Gone
© 1991 Joseph Gurner

Let me tell bout my baby
she’s the only girlf for me
when she tells me that she loves me
she just sets my spirit free
Then I look into her eyes
and I realize she is mine

Well I’ll never be a rich man
but she says that’s okay
cause we’ll be poor togethr
she won’t have it anyother way
And I’ll do my best to give her
All those simple things money just can’t buy


I’ll sing this song about her
when I’m feeling happy because
I dream about her when she’s gone
I’ll tell the world about her
when I’m feeling lonely because
I dream about her when she’s gone


I’ll sing this song about her
when I’m feeling happy because
I dream about her when she’s gone
I’ll tell the world about her
when I’m feeling lonely because
I dream about her when she’s gone

When She's Gone
can totally see this working in a set of Beatles. Its tight, nice hooks, and the vocals are right there. A little XTC flavor as well

What a wonderful
song and great sounds. Lovely harmonies. Although this has an authentic 60's sound - it also seems very fresh and new.
Cheers
