Description
Gaylen's notes :

When I wrote this song I was restricted to a four track recording device and limited keyboard talents. Today I haven't improved so I asked if anyone would like to help me preserve some of my ideas. Yves not only took the project but raised it to new levels. He is one of the most gratious people I have met here. I am so proud of this song and my friendship. I hope everyone takes the time to work with someone else here at Mj.

Yves' notes :

This is the realization of one of my objectives : A collab with Gaylen. Gaylen is one of my favorite singers and I wanted to work on a collab at some point. Gaylen has indeed awesome music waiting to be worked on. So we worked on one of them. I second Gaylen about the benefit of doing collabs, this has been another great experience for me and working with Gaylen has been a blast. Many thanks to Gaylen, this talented artist and a real cool guy, for the pleasure of working with him on this song and for his friendship.

I hope you enjoy this song.

Lyrics
VERTIGO
(Gaylen Sharp)

we met in a november breeze
when the last leaves
danced in the street
and it was alright
things where just alright
before long I met your mom
and I guess that we got along
and it was alright
things where just alright
after a year of pretending good
were both tired and misunderstood
but its alright
things are just alright
You lie to me and I lie to you
that we're alone is the only truth
and its alright
maybe its alright
turn away
fall away
never consider the words
that I say
Im not me
we're not we
push on through the night
and stay with me

I cant let go
and you cant let go
what will they say
if we let go
My head hangs low
as if it will ever rise again
Vertigo
pulls me to the rug below
I feel sick with emotion as
you try to embrace me
My mind races with poisoned
ideas and harsh reality
panicking and you start to cry
Your tears turn mine
and its alright
baby its alright
we cant blame away the truth
its all over for me and you
but its alright
baby its alright
turn away
fall away
never consider the words
that I say
Im not me
we're not we
push on through the night
and stay with me

Fantastic
I sat here for 20 minutes waiting for this to post! Gaylen said you changed it a bit..this sounds amazing! You are incredible. It was fun to watch this along the way. Can't pick out one thing to say stands out, because it is all so outstanding! Amazing job.
Symphony101 said 2497 days ago (November 20th, 2010)
Carrie !
Thank you so much Carrie ! This was a blast, I am so happy to have this opportunity to work with Gaylen. He's and amazing talent and he's really so cool to work.

I changed indeed a little, we were thinking the previous version intro was way too long.

I had intended posting a bit earlier but my wife asked me hoover the whole place, I did it just quick, so it took a little time :-)

Many thanks again Carrie, for your kind comment.

Hey Mike,
Thank you so much for your kind comment ! This was recorded practically all with midi directly, which gives some more control while mixing. I really enjoyed this project. Many thanks again.

I cant tell you what a pleasure it was to work on this with you, while at the same time torture. I dont know if anyone here knows this but it takes me a few hours to get a song done. Not bragging just saying I usually can get it out in one or two takes. This song was difficult for me emotionally. It was worth it. Thank you, Yves for waiting for me to finish.

how much Yves did but I'll say the music has a magnificence about it. Gaylen has an extraordinary voice and delivery that is spellbinding. Oh yes, Yves is a sweetheart. Congratulations on getting this song where you wanted it, guys. Thanks.

Hi Char !
Thank you so much ! The audio Gaylen sent had all elements that made this song. What I did was to expand it in a way it can be put into a structure Gaylen could sing upon, along with searching ideas for arrangement.

My favorite part of the song is the bridge and it's what had struck me in Gaylen's record when I first read it. And he sung so nicely on that part (too).

Thank you Char, your comment means a lot to me.

this comment is so important for me. I'm truly grateful for all the directions, encouragements and advice you have been giving since I came around.

Having fun AND getting better (and then, having more fun) is what I'm looking for and a musician like you mentioning an improvement is a great indication ! It makes me feel really good. I so much appreciate all this help you've been giving Charles, thank you so much !

I'm dizzy!
When I opened up this song, I first encountered that awesome photo...which made me sick (in a good way)...
You have a really unique vocal sound. Don't know how you created that, but it works well for this piece...You very convincingly lay out the lyrics for this sad sad song with some terrific backup that is hollow, filled with longing (and loss), and always compelling. It is impossible to NOT sit up and listen carefully to this song.

That picture.....yikes
that gives me the heebiejeebies....the song puts it all right again. You have put it as new age ...to me it sounds prog rockish...a bit Gabrielesque...although he does use a lot of new world instruments in his music as well.I get nods to Genesis (the early brilliant stuff) as well .Great piece.Thanks guys,Cheers ,Jarvoid.

I like how this song evolved and what you did with it. This sounds beautiful. Lucky you.. getting to work with one of our greatest singers. I imagine his dance card is quite full. Great job you two.

Yikes
Off the bat, I'm with -Harold-, Jarvoid, Rayelise, lilmom and probably others: that picture is completely INSANE. It's hard for me to imagine gathering the confidence to creep out to that edge and sit there even for a moment.

*ahem* OK - the song: greatness! I am compelled to use words others have used: epic, operatic, Jarre-esque and symphonic (how appropriate). Your two styles are made for each other here. I like the stark 80s turns sprinkled throughout.

There were some moments where percussive pieces seemed out of sync with the remainder of the backing track. Certain kick/tom hits with delay (0:50, 1:12, 1:26) and later snare builds (5:11, 5:28) seemed a touch ahead of the beat, which meant there had to be a "coming back to the beat" relaxation afterward. And I do mean a "touch" - almost so subtle to be unnoticeable by a rhythmic taskmaster such as myself. Did you quantize the rhythm at all? It would seem that this song would be well-served by it as the fills are mostly straight 16ths.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
Symphony101 said 2464 days ago (December 23rd, 2010)
I have to admit
I would NEVER go up there and sit myself !

Mike thanks so much for your precise ears and insights ! I usually "draw" the drums partitions, so "normally" the timing should be fine, but something may have gone wrong at those parts, I also remember using a lot of delays on percussions. I need to check these.

Thank you so much for your detailed insights Mike, I really appreciate getting those details as feedback ! This is the best way to get better.

good song
Good arrangement with many lush sounds.

The vocals don't sound entirely integrated in the mix. Touch of reverb?

Hi Vic !
Integrating vocals in the mix has always been quite a challenge for me. Yes, it's probably what was missing.

Many thanks for taking a moment to listen and your kind advice and comment !

Hey Dave !
No worries at all ! As much as it's possible, I try to post songs with at least a few weeks' (sometimes even more) pause, specially if it's a collab, so that it leaves enough time for people to have an opportunity. Many many thanks for your kind comment, it means a lot to me. Cheers.

Emotiv
What a great collab. I enjoy the somewhat sad and desolate sounds and vocal lines. Reminds me (mood and overall sonic quality) of a combination of Vangelis and The Fixx, with maybe a little Queesnryche vocals thrown in. Good stuff.
