Lyrics
Verse:
Woke up this morning
It was the day that you'd leave
Rolling down the window
Cold rain that could melt my tears
Saw your hands trembling
Saw the pain in your eyes
It was a silent confession
Those rivers of salt that I cried

Chorus:
All I want to do is swim in your hair
I don't really care if you laugh or cry
Cause I wouldn't hide these tears
Just as I wouldn't hide a smile

Instrumental

Chorus

Verse:
You were leaving
Your cold, cold heart behind
How could I deceive you
When you were so blind?
The wonder and mystery of loving
Lies buried in shame
So go with your pride
And leave all the memories out in the rain

Chorus

Love
the vocals! Love the changes... unexpected and nice! One of the things I like about this is how less is more! You didn't try to layer in too much! Nicely done!

Thanks for the really nice comments. I am so happy that the chord changes were likable and not too dissonant for your ears. The harmonies and actually the overall vocals were probably the most challenging I've 'heard' and tried to sing before so it's great that they worked for you:) Thanks again.

Gotta admit it was the song title alone that pulled me in at first. Sounded surreal, but the song wasn't. Was that a twist at the end? Best part of Swim for me as the second half of the chorus (Cause I wouldn't...) Loved that eerie chord prog and the phrasing you used with it.

The production here sounds great - you've obviously tried some new tricks since your last post. Great song - love the odd changes - terrific melodies and harmonies (have you been listening to SISTERS?) and nicely played piano.

Something to think about for your next post: light and shade in the song is not very well developed. By that I mean that everything kind of goes along at the same level - you can build lots of interest by bringing in and dropping out instruments. The obvious instrument parts I'd be looking at here are the drums/percussion loop which pretty much starts on the first bar and stay the same for the 4:15 duration. You have lots of scope in the percussion to add and remove parts. For example you could start with just congas and introduce the drums after the first verse - maybe leaving the tambourine until a chorus (to change the feel). The other thing you could do with the drums is to change loops to get different feels between the verses and chorus. To do all this of course, you'd need to find separate loops that only have tambo OR congas OR drums OR shakers (get what I mean?) and mix them up to provide variety.

Plan B might be to ask someone like Mike Watkins (kevmikwa) to do some live drums for you. I'd be happy to have a crack at them too (well, midi, not real drums).

I'm really impressed how you have taken suggestions on board and come up with obvious improvements in your sound. You know you can IM me if you want more ideas.

Cheers from Oz - it's so good to see your progress.

As always, I really appreciate your thoughtful comments. I continue to learn so much from you:) I was really happy to hear that you thought the production (and the piano and harmonies) sounded great - yippee, improvement! I did take all of the suggestions into account, following a much more step-by-step, organized approach to both recording and mixing/mastering. I agree that I can improve the light and shade in this song and will do so. Keep your eyes out for the remix. Thanks again, Neil. Off to work..

Intriguing lyrics set up an intriguing song. It doesn't quite flow like a conventional song but your strong vocals carry the day and give it real interest. Well done. Warm regards, Peter.

Thank you very much for your thoughtful comments. I'd agree that this song doesn't really fit a conventional, predictable pattern. I always heard the melody and chords as they are here, rather odd even in some places. Because of this, it was probably also the hardest melody I've ever tried to sing! So, I am really happy that you thought the vocals were strong:) Thanks again. All the best.

Different Sad
Strange juxtaposition of backing mood (quite jaunty?) with the intense sadness of the lyrics, makes an interesting and quite unexpected mix. Hints at layers of meaning that the lyrics don't quite reveal.

As always, lovely vocals, nice harmonies, and very together and well produced.

Enjoyed it. Thank you.

Thank you kindly for your thoughtful comments. You picked up on layers.. very observant, Marc. I would most certainly say that there were many, many emotional layers for me during this experience. It's good to hear that the backing wasn't too jaunty - that it made for an interesting and not annoying mix. Thanks again for listening and taking the time to comment. It is much appreciated. All the best.

Thank you very much for your nice comments. It's true that I wish that I had the skill to really belt it out in TUNE:) The melody was actually very difficult to sing - kicking myself for thinking up a melody that starts on the 2nd of the chord so often! This meant that I had to take care (and a lot of attempts) to get everything in tune. Glad that you liked the song:) Thanks for taking the time to listen and write.

drakonis said 2322 days ago (February 17th, 2011)
Hey, listen to this!
Nice clean mix here, and your singing fits in but is strident and doesn't get lost, the harmony singing is perfectly "backgroundified" there, you got the "stereo-spread" trick to work perfectly here.

The drums seem a little "persistent" through this, perhaps create several "loops", some more "busy" than others, and add the busy versions during the chorus, and a very sparse one just at the intro, and maybe lower the overall drum track volume, and don't pan the different percussion instruments quite so far apart... just some more minor ideas.

Overall a fun flowing song that hides a darker message in the lyrics.

ttfn,
Drakonis

As usual, you have given me some very useful advice here. I agree with both you and Jiguma that the drum tracks are too persistent throughout. At the beginning, I liked this, but have started playing with different loops, moving things about and the results are very positive. Hopefully, you will see a remix posted soon with updated, more varied drum tracks. Btw, do you find the vocals too 'strident'? It's so exciting to hear that the background vocals blend well here. Thanks again for your help. All the best.

like Neil I feel you've somehow morphed into Ann Cozean .. 8o. how did that happen? lol .. anyways, great singing/harmonies: my only nit is to avoid the temptation to throw in 1 bongo drum loop and repeat it for the entire song... something I have done myself.... it does get tiresome and distracts you from all the nice variety going on elsewhere.

Thank you for your thoughtful comments. On this song, I really wanted harmonies, but found it difficult to hear them. This meant that I picked them out on the keyboard and they turned out to be best when in three-part harmony. Maybe Anne uses three- part harmonies often? Funny! I agree about the percussion. There is actually another drum loop that comes in on the chorus, but it's hard to hear the difference:) I will re-do the drums and repost soon... thanks again for your comments. I am happy that you liked the singing/harmonies. All the best.

Nice jazzy changes. I really liked the vocals and harmonies. "Swim in your hair" is a strong, original hook.

delightful changes and your voice is lovely. Thought the harmonies worked well and really enhanced the tune. Nice delicate touch on the keys...shades of basia

pleasurable listening
It's evident you love to sing, Laura. Lyrics float on a simple, beautiful piano accompaniment. My own opinion is that, a human drummer would be sublime. A joy to listen to! Is it available somewhere?
good wishes, greg

Thank you very much. I do love to sing, it's true. The human drummer version is going to be posted very soon!! Loob has done the drums for me, as well as adding violin, cello and guitar. I am so excited about the outcome. You'll hear it soon. I am just a hobbiest really, so the song is only here for fun. Thanks again for your kind and supportive comments.

I like your voice. The song could benefit by less velocity in the piano notes. I recommend adding acoustic guitar strumming and maybe a fiddle.

Thank you kindly for your helpful suggestions. I am excited that I should be able to post the updated version soon. I have been working with Loob who has added acoustic guitar sounds, violin, cello and live drums. The various layers really add - can't wait to post it when it's ready. Thanks again for stopping by to listen and comment. All the best.
