Description
Alternative rock effort... This song was difficult for me to complete. I'm not a rock singer. And yet I wrote a rock song that I needed to sing on. So, I struggled with that for several weeks. You know, the other thing that was interesting was my daughter thought that I went too far with the little tagline at the end, and logically I agreed with her. But ultimately, it's really a punchline and I hadn't yet said it throughout the song anywhere prior. Even though that was the obvious conclusion, that's where I wanted to go.

Pretty sexy stuff!
Your voice is very fine: warm and supple. The build up (both in instrumentation and intensity) to that petulant complaint at the end is beautifully paced. I enjoyed this one a lot.
Thanks very much indeed,

SJ

Thank you, Sonny. I repeated this an message to you, but your comment is poetic and sensuous. I'd like to borrow it if I may...

Wow. Love the song and LOVE your singing. Bass, drums, piano all work wonderfully. Great when strings kick in. Love the improvised feel of performance. Great track. Hope to hear more from you.

Interesting enough...
Hi John, Thank you! The last part when the strings kick in, I improved that vocal. I end up changing the tempo, so I had to learn the improved part in order to re-record. It was a bit surreal.

Haven't you heard? You shouldn't be too quick to download. It just takes a little restraint...

No sign of the struggle from this end, Ela. A very, very fine song, beautifully presented. I really like the arrangement, too. The recording is first class. Surely not just still on the iPad? If so, you are getting a sound out of it that is fantastic. I listened several times before I wanted to download ;-) but couldn't... Your comment to papa just cracked me up. Take care, Peter.

Your voice is powerful and expressive. The backing supports it well without trying to take over - I like the way you bring new elements into it (the strings, for example). I like the ending! Much enjoyed.

Hi Bandit!
So it didn't go where you expected, huh? Great! I'm happy to hear that. The choice of notes for the improv at the end, come from my days trained in opera. However, my teacher would have died a thousand deaths to hear what I'm singing here. That's okay..hated opera training anyway. Wanted to sing the blues and R&B. Thank you?

And.
I like the ending too. Its the final bit of information that explains the build up, and perhaps the whole song. That's why I call it the punch line.
