Description
A song written by Jack, I made some changes to the melody and a few of the lyrics. I thought it came out decently on the first take so I just left it. I liked the spooky lyrics so I kept almost all of them. I guess this will be my Halloween like song. I added a 2 sounds from free sounds online from studiorat and petrasound. Hope you enjoy!

What a lovely, spooky waltz
Charles, you can do no wrong! And this is a beautiful song and a sensitive, emotive arrangement.

I noticed you snuck some autotuned vocal harmonies in there.

I don't think it needs the screams. But hey, it adds to the fun.

BTW, the harmonies are not auto tuned
on this song. I do have a wide stereo spread on one of the bkp vox. maybe that is what you are hearing?

Put this one together pretty quickly but despite that, it came out pretty nice too. I wanted to do a scary song for halloween so I figured this one by Jack would suffice.

I would have loved to have waited another day so I could get the mix right. The vocals in the first verse are really muddy, dang it! It was an easy EQ fix too. I gave Jack's track a cut at like 150 hz and voila, the vocal was clear as a bell.

Emma's got backbone
She can handle a bit of special effects sounds to goad her on without pushing her over the top, maybe. Very nicely sung, and love the melody twists you chose and the harmonizing. Still not 100% sure about the screams, seemed a little cheesy to me, but that is just me :-)

Jack's Emma is awesome, and you sang to her well.

Frightful
I like your version of this great song. Okay, I admit I quite like the added noises & the screams!! I like the lowness of your voice as you sing "Emma' in the beginning & sing it in the distance over the footstep sounds- sounds very haunted.

I've heard a few other versions earlier, Emma has been quite busy.

This is eerie, and the perfect Halloween song without being cheesy. Would make a great tune for a scary documentary. Awesome vocals & harmonies.

Loved the original. Loved this one, too. The vocals are outstanding and the harmonies at 1:16 are amazing, love how how they don't sync entirely. I think I could have done without the Halloween sound effects. It is haunting enough as it is. But, hey it's October, so what can I say... Great version!

I don't always sync my harmonies, I like to hold a word while the other line says stuff then continue on, stuff like that. On this song, it was more of the fact that the vocals were one take. It worked out perfectly though.

Spooky eyes for a kick off
then a lovely treatment of the lyric/vocal part....seems this Emma bird is getting around a bit,some sort of ubiquitous spooky siren.

This is very spooky,Poesque and again a touch of the APP sound and style.....I know I always use them as a yardstick to measure spooky tunes but hey...'Tales of Mystery and
Imagination' is an awesome album....

Deep w/ character and laced w/ the sounds of a man just trying to live an honest life - (I know..., who says stuff like that...) I'll have to listen to hear more about emma and what she'sall about.

The Scaryness
is only portrayed in the lyrycs, sounds, and melodies. Your voice is only slightly eerie, helped by fx, but as for me, Im so used to hearing your melodious talents in a certain way, that the "spook" factor was overpowered by my pre-conception of Charles. This is in NO WAY meant as a negative, I am merely being honest in what I am hearing. However, I think this is a great musical departure, and as always the quality of production is second to none, and the singing is beautiful, as to be expected.
Thanks Charles!

You are a fine singer, Charles.
That is apparent in the way you modulated your voice. So expressive and intimate. Well done. I didn't mind the effects but you had my attention without anything but your singing. A very rich composition from Jack. I have to listen twice. Thanks.

Not much in the way
of effects on the vocal in this. Stereo spreading, compression, reverb and in a few spots some echo since the backing has an echoing guitar, I thought it would work. Thanks for listening Char! Good to see you around these parts!

Spooky
This song definitely has an eerie vibe . . . . but is strangely really poignant and touching, especially right around 1:15. Beautiful vocals at 1:20. This song is kind of like a trip through a haunted house with moments of great magic and beauty! :)

since..
..I commented on Mystified's version of this, I thought I should give another version a listen.. and I am really liking this; the vocal delivery really makes all the difference and ramps up the tension, especially the ambience and harmonies in the last chorus. Great rendition man.

New Favorite
I love the entrance of the bass- it puts great emphasis on the melody and your voice. It builds the song so well. I love this arrangement and i'm so excited to put this on my halloween playlist. It's really perfect for Halloween- eerily beautiful.

Very cool
I love your voice, Charles. That's all I can say....you make everything that you work on sound.....good....because you've got those pipes!!! Wow.....you sent this to me awhile back and I listened, but I was in Starbucks and in transit and super distracted. Gave it another listen and wow....I'm impressed all over again!

Love it
Charles, this is great. I don't know why, but the "Moody Blues" popped into my head as I listened. Love 2:37 to 2:45.

A cut above
Charles, this song just oozes quality. Your vocals are fantastic and the quality of the mix sets the benchmark for new MJ'ers such as myself. This song is a cut above many others I have listened to on the site. Thanks. Regards, Peter.
