Who Needs You LIOLI 10


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Welcome to the first project by Nana Cabana Studios

This is Sheila's debut singing vocals. Might I add, she is also responsible for drum and music arrangement. She also had complete control as the producer. I myself engineered according to Sheila's wishes and added the instruments that she finalized.

Basically this is her baby and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working with her.

Lyrics
Who needs you in the middle of the night
Who needs you to make it alright

Who needs you to ease the pain
Who needs you to end the rain

Who needs you to erase the past
who needs you to make love last

Who needs you to hold them tight
Who needs you on this night

I really wanted
it to be like the voices in a dream so guess it worked. Chris did such a fantastic job of adding all the instruments that really gave it the right feel

Who Needs You LIOLI 10
Very well done. I really like the lyrics and the arrangement. I love when writers use a repeating lyrical phrase. It really creates a good hook!

When I said
a crappy loop should have crappy vocals I meant it as a joke but it really turned out I think...

Chris tried once again to teach me how to put things together but instead I found it much more enjoyable to tell him what to do even if I had no clue what it was I was trying to tell him (thats the producer part I guess and a much nicer term that lil miss Bossy Pants)

Once Chris added in the acoustic guitar line the tune kind of just had a mind of its own and just seemed to lend itself to the trance feel so that is what we ended up with.

Certainly could not have done it without all the hard work Chris put into it and all the additional instruments he either played or pieced loops for. Oh... and I think that melodyne program might have been put to the test!

What you put together
is trance like and it is attention grabbing. I like the repeating lines and the doubled vocals. None of it sounds crappy at all. Keep producing. Make lovely music together. Thanks.

added his vocals to the backing that just did it for me... no more talk of deleting my vocals! He saved the day and the tune. How the heck did he manage to talk me into singing anyway????

btw
you will be happy to know that my command of the music language has not improved at all.. its still limited to "squish that more" "fix that boom boom part" and my new favorite... "about that guitar line... can you change it.... like play a whole new one?" (that one ALWAYS goes over well LOL)

After about a minute in I forgot all about the loop..(which is so promanite in the mix)this is really good.

Thanks everyone!
I really enjoy working with Sheila. Even though she is a bossy pants. She has a true producers mind. Was fun because all I had to do was play and get the ok on what will work and what won't. Does this mean I have to share 97% of my profits from this studio too???...sheesh!

this song is fresh and I think the vocals help make it that way. Just enough instrumentation in the mix to support the vocals and transform the song as it travels in time.

thanks for the download :)

are something way out of the ordinary for me.... any vocals acutally.

I just wanted it to be like voices floating in the back of someones mind while they drift off to sleep

I love the way...
...you slowed the loop down so much it doesn't sound like a loop anymore. Then you went and added some extra-cool lyrics and vocals. What's not to love about this? IMO, nothing!

Cheers,
Jim

the loop
was yucky! Slowed it down and changed it to E then when I added drums it gave it that trance like feel. Chris did all the real work and I think we killed that loop in a good way.

Beautiful
I posted earlier but for some reason some of my posts are not getting Through? I listened to this with my coffee this morning and I am listening again now and right from the start the little guitar riff is sweet then the vocals come in. Beautiful almost haunting in a good way. Nice with the harmonies and the nuances of strings and piano tinkering sets a great background.Repetitive lyric is catchy. Really like this

who needs you?
i really like this. love the layered repetitive 'who needs you' intro and that really sweet bass guitar running all over the place. strings and orchestration works so well. sheila's vocals are raw and genuine.....i like that. the orchestration (again) is beautifully conceived....and the 'who needs you' line could just go on forever and not get boring. that's a major feat of songwriting. incredibly catchy and haunting. excellent work. i am a big fan of this song.

The voice is unconventional but it is playful and lovely. Kinda the same feeling I get when I hear Deerhoff. Not everyone's cup of coffe, I know, may be even not yours, and I admire you just for that.
Trance inducing track.

This must be the "B" side of her classic, and sadly generally unavailable, premier recording. I happen to have a copy, and listening to them back to back, I must say the second number is even better! Allow me to suggest she is still the fearless leader babe!
