Description
This is another collab that I did with Elaine aka RubyDubidoux.
It wasn't an easy one to record and mix, but for now this one will do
I think the bridge at two thirds of the song worked out well.
Hope you folks like it

Lyrics
You and I

You and I babe
We walk a narrow path
You and I babe
We did the math
You and I babe
We're gonna last

If you want my love
Just come and get it
If you need my love
Well I just gotta give it
With all my heart

You and I babe
We got so high
You and I babe
We touched the sky
You and I babe
Dont need no alibi

If you want my love
Just come and get it
If you need my love
Well I just gotta give it
With all my heart

You and me
We built this dream
You and me
We are a team

Your voices mesh so darned well... romantic!

Good one all around - an all-season heart warmer.

Your
voices go together really well, a nice blend of vocals with great tone. I like the slight laid back feel to this groove and the bridge is great, very much enjoyed.

Started singing because the singer I used to work with moved to another country and I couldn't find another one. Never consider myself a singer .... Elaine is the singer here :-)

why is it that
cool, hot skater chicks abound in cartoons and the Disney Channel but are like unicorns in real life?

I like this. The verse reminds me a bit of Joe Jackson. Maybe it's the piano. But then the chorus is awkward in a stylistic way, like waits. I like the boy/girl approach too. Not alot of that on MJ. I like the lead, too.

I like your r & b stylings. Great chorus...reminds me a little of a Donny Hathaway/Roberta Flack groove. Nice bit of writing
and performances.

Smooth work
An Isley Brothers tone on the fuzz guitar and some other funky work going on there.

You've managed to get the vocals working well together and that's not easy!

Cheers

Great tune...
By you both, I think it worked out pretty good, different timbers sound
wise but the difference that mattered was, comfort that stood out.....
And it works, her placement in your world of sound came together sounds
like you could do it some more, start bouncing off each other feeling your
way around till you get somewhere you like.....

Real nice project...... For sure......

Thanks Tony
Well, you just described how we worked :-)
this was the third song we did, but the trouble was my songwriting, it was hard to find good harmonies, sometimes that just happens..
Thyanks for your elaborate comment
always appreciated!

You and I
Nice duet KC. It has a good uplifting feel to it, and the vocals and guitar work are right on for me. The opening leaves no room for escape - I'm into the tune before I know it. Well put together.

Thanks for stopping by
Andrew, there's only a small percentage of inspiration and a lot of hard work :-)
I always work on several tracks at the same time, slowly developing them
till a point where i need to write lyrics and do the final mix...
some songs lay on the shelf for a long time...

Easy listening groove
Nice collab, Cees and Elaine. Easy listening groove and some tasty guitar work. The piano, bass and drums work their way nicely in the mix as well. Elaine has a fine voice. Take care both of you, Peter.

Nice collab
I dig how folks find each other for these cool collaborations. I liked the song art you picked! Funny how the You and Me vs You and I thing works, changing with the rhyming need. I was thinking, as the track played, that the electric guitar sounds really good and should maybe be louder, played more often. And a bass would help. A sweet tune. I liked the piano chording when it used 7ths and 4ths, consider using even more chord substitutions, voicing and register shifts, to give the different sections more variety, and more standard jazz chords, there is a classic aspect to the writing that those sorts of chords would accentuate, perhaps. Thanks for sharing this.

Thank you!
I know Elaine from another musicsite and we did some songs before this one.
I think I know what you mean with the chords on the piano, but I'm a very basic player on the keys, just know enough to get it going :-)
Thanks for the elaborate comment!

Nice!
This had a bit of a Steely Dan vibe to it which is nothing but a good thing. The voices blend well. I really enjoyed the guitar leads. I would have liked to hear the drums a little more in front in the mix, but that's just me. Thanks for sharing!

I like the song. The drums have a good groove, but they are a bit in the background. The first half of the could use some guitar parts or something: just a piano as chordal instrument sounds a bit sketchy.

that I only a piano was on purpose. Usually I throw in a bunch of piano's and even a couple of guitars, so this time I kept it simple
