Description
A guy a my DAW's forums sent me his stems to Time and a Word to mix and add vocals to. At first, I told him I'd be glad to mix it, but I declined to sing. I mean Anderson? Really? But once I got going with the mix, I just couldn't help it. Glutton for punishment, I guess. So try to bare with it.

BlessedOne72: all music.
Me: all vocs and mix.

Lyrics
In the morning when you rise,
Do you open up your eyes, see what I see?
Do you see the same things ev'ry day?
Do you think of a way to start the day
Getting things in proportion?
Spread the news and help the world go 'round.
Have you heard of a time that will help us get it together again?
Have you heard of the word that will stop us going wrong?
Well, the time is near and the word you'll hear
When you get things in perspective.
Spread the news and help the word go round.

There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the time is now.
There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the word is love.

Have you heard of a time that will help get it together again?
Have you heard of the word that will stop us going wrong?
Well, the time is near and the word you'll hear
When you get things in perspective.
Spread the news and help the word go round.

There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the time is now.
There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the word is love.
There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the time is now.
There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the word is love.

Not too painful...
:) This is a tough song to sing, Sammy, but you do a really good job of it, maneuvering all those sliding notes and chord changes that drive the melody along. Give yourself a break. This is well-performed. My only wish is that you'd have provided the lyrics because I just can't understand what the story is. Glad I heard this this evening. You're a brave man to hop into a number like this and do a great job.

Thx Paul
I do like a challenge. I originally told BlessedOne I didn't want to do the vocals because I just don't sing that high, at least not sustained through and entire song. I chalk it up as a good experience.

Most worthy
Jon has posted here before. Let's hope he gets to hear this one.

Starship Trooper
is another excellent Yes cover. Jon's contribution was in the way of a little jingle. I think he used his own name.

A worthy collab!
What a mood this evokes! This is big-huge, and somewhat Beatle-esque. Excellent!

Be well friends!

Hey Mike
I was copying Anderson's melody and hormonies, so it there's 'Beatle-esque', it's from him...unless some of my vocal tones sound like them. If so, that's just my natural voice when trying to sing high notes. Can't be changed...or can it?

Beatles
My friend Tim Bullock introduced me to Yes as "what the Beatles would have sounded like if they hadn't broken up," so it makes sense to me.

I'll
pass that along to Blessed, Vic. He also did the music for King C's Moonchild, but he sang himself on that one. Thx man.

one of the early releases by yes
and this tune brings back so many good memories. You shouldn't be so hard on yourself. Your vocals fit very well and the music is outstanding. Made my Sunday... thanks for sharing.

Hey John
I guess I was doubtful because it was a pretty different vocal for me. Mr Anderson's voice is pretty high up there. But hey, at least I didn't back away from trying. Thanks man.

No bearing needed.
You sound perfect. I'd like the lyrics, as well. I'm old. Thanks.

Impressive, Sam. Talk about a challenge! I tried to sing along with a section and couldn't get anywhere near it. You did a great job. Seriously. You don't get the impression that you are in over your head singing in that register. Good song. Fine backer, too. Mixing all those tracks and getting the clarity you achieved is equally as impressive. Kudos to you both. Thanks.

Sir Carbon
I think I'm getting a summer bug. I've been practicing more mixing than recording, but I'll prob start writing more again. The last thing I wrote was a funky tune about a month ago. Time for something new. Thanks for stopping by.

Always loved this song
Excellent version! The vocal harmonies are outstanding. Jon Anderson's voice is impossible to replicate. So you don't and you didn't. I love what you did with this.
