Description
I usually do a song for Autumn and this is this years rendition, though I swiftly discovering that my voice is no longer up to singing ballads like this, which require more breath than other genres. I played the piano in my usual style (Jose Iturbi I am NOT), but I hope you like this seasonal song, though we've been baking in the hottest Sept/Oct on record this past couple of days.

Lyrics
Autumn Calls.

The days grow shorter now the Autumn calls,
And yet the nights grow ever long,
My heart is breaking for a love I knew,
It flew away with summer’s song.
While Autumn now brings in the change,
There’s something always will remain,
Memories of summer spent with you,
Though love turned out to be in vain.

When Autumn came to colour all her trees,
She painted them in shades of gold,
Now with the misty glow the evening brings,
Love’s embers chase away the cold.
The memories of summer haunt me still,
As shafts of sunlight fill my room,
The glow you left with me, fights off the chill,
And helps to lift away the gloom.

Instrumental,

The memories of summer haunt me still,
As shafts of sunlight fill my room,
The glow you left with me, fights off the chill,
And helps to lift away the gloom.
The lovely colours that the Autumn made,
Now seeming oh, so very new,
Too soon the winter chill will see them fade,
Just like the love that we once knew.

Outro.
..... the winter chill will see them fade,
Just like the love that we once knew.

Maurice Vizard. Sept. 2011.

I just went
to listen your song after reading your comment here and I think mine is certainly more in the retro stakes, style-wise at least. I'm glad you liked my song and I thank you for the compliment on my vocal, which I had to do about six takes, before it was passable and still isn't all I would have liked, so your comment is much appreciated, regards M

You done it again
.....sashaying away with the glitter ball doing its stuff.....a bit of Strictly in this...seasonal choice in an unseasonal clime...typical britain ..never does what you expect ...except it always does the unexpected which we now expect.........hang on I'm just going to try and unravel that one !!

Nice post Maurice......

Cheers

This brings you such positive memories Feter.... I can truly believe that the guys from so far back sounded like this, because of course, it's of my era as well; I guess they must be about the same age as me now..... so as i said, I'm really pleased it rang a bell for you, best regards Feter, M

Jose Iturbi!
Loved that wisecrack Maurice! This is okay, as I'm no Carmen Cavellero myself. That aside, your musical score here is beautiful and so is this song and your vocal....I think I detected maybe a little homage to Roger Miller's recording of "Autumn Leaves" in the little chromatic scales you put in here and there. Your songs are always so well done--thanks for yet another. Michael

Ha Ha,
I might have known you would be familiar with Jose Michael, you seem to have such an encyclopaedic knowledge of showbiz..... The way I play is with two hands but not at the same time you see LOL; I have to make two tracks , one left hand which just 'plonks' the chords and another right hand, then i copy and paste the right track into the left (are you following this? LOLOL). Thanks so much for the very kind comment and yes, the chromatics fit so well for Autumn, with all the falling leaves..... how could I manage without them....... Thanks again, regards M

Once
I get the idea of what i want to say they do tend to fall into place Tim, but they usually need a bit of swapping around of verses and lines and then as you can see with the difference in places, of the written lines and what is sung; it comes more naturally when you're actually singing. Thank you once again for calling in to listen..... always appreciated, regards M

Thanks for calling in to listen here..... regarding the voice; it's getting quite weak on those high notes now, so we'll have to have a re- think, when it gets too painful to listen to, regards M

Couldn't agree more. My favorite time of year. We're having a beautiful fall here. Very evocative minor key tune. You're lyrics are so well, crafted, Maurice, and your singing is more than up to the task. Love that tinkly piano figure that cycles through.

Autumn
looks like i'm not alone with my love for the fall season. for some reason, it's my most creative time of the year. get my Bailey's Irish Cream or green tea and sit down to create.
the piano drops capture the feel of falling leaves and keeps the mood going in this song. Nice mix too. You're pretty good with your Ozone!

Moviz said 2002 days ago (October 3rd, 2011)
Yes I agree
The Autumn can be a very inspirational time Sammy as we wind down after the summer and prepare for the colder weather. The piano 'drops' were intended to capture the image of falling leaves and I just knew you'd come along to listen to a Latin number LOL..... love that Ozone. ....and oh, yes, i like Baileys too; in fact I have two bottles, but i never remember to pour a glass..... I've had them for about two years LOL regards M

autumn
Autumn is a hard time for me, although the light of the low sun is always beutiful, especially in this indian summer we had, but we're heading for the short aand dark days ...
Dig the loose style of playing the keys and the warm vibe of the vocals
Very much enjoyed, Maurice

I think your slightly breathy sound really works here. This is a fantastic song. Some minor distortions on the vocal but it isnt bad. I would love to hear a voice piano version. I think that would be nice to and maybe more intimate.

Thanks Gaylen
The slightly 'breathy is really slightly breath-less for me at the moment I'm afraid LOL... seriously though, it is affecting both my high and my low notes on songs sung as slowly as this, making them sound weak. I agree about the piano, if only I were a good enough pianist. Thanks so much Gaylen for listening and leaving the kind words, much appreciated, regards M
