Description
I love this song. So much in fact that I had to do it four times. One of the previous efforts I posted here but this one beats all. Yves put his magic in it and I am thrilled to present it to you.


Words from Yves: "This is my 2nd collab with Gaylen, yet another amazing experience and great fun.


While chatting online, Gaylen asked me if I'd like to work on redoing one of his songs. I took a quick listen and while still online, I said I'd get down to work.


From that point on, I spent some time simply listening to "Blue" and learning the song. I wanted to take the song from a different angle, and not simply copying the existing arrangement. I started playing with some ideas and gradually things got clear and concrete about what we'd like to do.


I just love working with Gaylen. He's such a great talent and while he strives for good results, he remains very flexible and encouraging. He made me feel I had carte blanche while working on this, so we see where this is going, and he didn't hesitate to bring constructive input and encouragement along the way. I felt really good all the way during this collab.



On this project I could finally take advantage of the recording interface I started using since short and I'm quite happy with the difference it made on bass guitar and guitar takes. After we had the initial mix, Gaylen worked on the vocals and sent the vocal track. Then we ended up with the final result.


I feel truly privileged having this opportunity, and what a great fun this has been ! Thank you so much G-man !

I hope you all enjoy Gaylen's "Blue".

Lyrics
all of the answers will
come to your questions in time
none of the answer will
help you to make up your mind
blue why wont you love me
you, why wont you love me
just lie back down and close my eyes
goodbye baby youve gone and drove me crazy
I cant stay here with you oh not anymore
i thought just maybe we could make this happen
no one can tell me what all the fightings for
in a dream I am god and youre dead and youre gone
and I know far away in that dream youre not for real
look at the faces will you regret ever lie
just lie back down
words on the pages can you still read between the lines
just lie back down
down on your knees now honey thats me up in the sky
just lie back down
show me devotion I will take it
bow your head and open your eyes
blue why wont you love me
you why wont you love me
blue why wont you love me
you why wont you love me
just lie back down
and close your eyes

Wow this really turned out great. I really love the remake of this one. I am glad I suggested that Gaylen ask Yves to work on this one with him! Yes, I will take credit for this collab! Great work Yves, you really made this feel right, your incredible! Gaylen, I love this take on the vocals and of course I think you are the most amazing singer/song writer so I am as biased as they come. But I do have great taste! Beautiful work fellas!

Can't Miss!
Sounds really accessible and inclusive this, ideal for a live event, i would have thought, especially if you can wear a leotard well?

Well produced to my ear and if it came through the radio it certainly would not sound at all out of place.

Nice job!

Love the first two lines of this song. Very clever. The urgent, layered vocals and synth lead break at 2.08 tick all the right Art Rock buttons. Big production number that still manages pro-quality mix. Congratulations you two. Regards, Peter.

I would like to
thank everyone for their kind comments, and once again, Gaylen for making me part of this great project.

This is definitely an awesome song and more I got involved, more I liked it. I specially love the lyrics. Lyrics writing is definitely one of Gaylen's specialities.

I consider the references made about Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons or Alice Cooper as real compliments. This is the kind of sound I like and I'm pleased if the music reminds of them a little bit, although there was no conscient effort to sound like them.

A great tune and performances!
Vocals and guitars are outstanding. Gaylen, I think this is my favourite of your vocals here at MJ - the harmonies are incredible (must have used heaps of helium lol!). Yves - you're a wonderful guitarist.
There's something about the drums in the solo section (and other sections as well) - the same crash seems there in every bar, and I think that is a little predictable in such a terrific song.
I'd love to hear this with a real drummer on board - Scott or Mike would add so much to this great song.
Cheers from Oz,
N
