Description
A song using some new recording techniques my brother taught me, bless him.
The technique, a poor man's digital to analog warmer,record your compositions output from the computer to a cassette recorder. Then from the cassette back to the computer into peak or any audio editor. Apply the vintage warmer plug. The cassette tape adds some analog warmth and soft distortion to the digital clarity of the computer recorded composition.
Artwork is from my brothers collection of paintings, Gockel the artist.

Lyrics
A snatch of some French speaking woman from DirecTV IFC channel movie.

I know I 'm on my way
Your Light is shining through
However long ago
I'll always think of you
I promise i'll will keep this feeling deep inside
As long as your with me
I'll never run and hide

You,
take away the emptiness
and You
and I feel complete
Do you realize the world you left me to
but you set me free babe

I know I 'm on my way
Your Light is shining through
However long ago
I'll always think of you
I promise i'll will keep this feeling deep inside
As long as you're with me
I'll never run and hide

You seem to know exacty what to do
its a mystery
Who,else can make me shiver like I do
when you're lovin me babe

A snatch of some French speaking woman from DirecTV IFC channel movie.

Mais Oui....

Really nice recording... mellow, jazzy and mixed well.
I especially like your backup harmonies as they kick
in. C'est tres bon!

I had to come back and listen again to this song.... so I am just going to
download it. Kudos to you on a special song. One of the best I have heard
on macjams, for sure.

Hypnotic, excellent
Nice job, Mimi. Great track you have laid down here. Very
smooth, enjoyable harmonies. Not sure about "a snatch of
some French speaking woman," have no idea what she is
saying, but it does sound cool. Maybe this digital to
analog warmth you were describing made the vocals
sound so warm? Excellent.

smooth, mellow, polished, professional!
This is a very well-conceived and produced track. It is
tasteful in every way.

There are a lot of subtle little "extras" in this tune, such as
the "shivering" FX sound when you sing the word "shiver".
I also like the recurring rising synth organ sound at the
ends of phrases.

Nice, smooth vocals. If there were a "Smooth Jazz"
category here, this song would fit the genre perfectly.

Quality production
Quality, tight production and pop sound, with a slight jazz
club feel. Very nicely done. I especially like the slithering
intro rhythm track. I dig the artwork too. Stays inside the
pop boundaries perfectly.

Stunning
Thought Virtual Love was your best track until I played this.
Totally stunning production, vocal is sensational.

As always you never disappoint, one of the best tracks I have
listened to on Macjams.

Hopefully you improve on the next track, but I am unsure
how you can.

digital analog digital = smooth
This is one of the most professional sounding songs I've
heard on this site. I definitley feel the analog warmth of
this. It would be interesting to hear an a/b comparison
bewteen the digital version, and the one you ran through
the cassette player.
bronco said 4914 days ago (July 3rd, 2005)
Too Smooth
I'm not going to vote on this because it's not my style of
music and it wouldn't be fair. But my comment is that
although I recognize the excellence of your production, it
is too me overproduced. It feels more like something
constructed in a factory rather than a human
communicating with me. But this is the criticism I have of
most modern pop music and should not be taken
personally. Obviously I am in the minority here and you
have reached the audience you were shooting for.

Gorgeous
A beautifully realized piece of music. All the work and
attention to detail has made the song very accessible, and
it communicates and resonates with me nicely. Listening
to this is a pleasure, a sonic massage, a journey%u2026 You
have much to be proud of. Beautiful singing, very creative,
pleasing, and polished arrangement.

This type of instrumental arrangement might not be for
everyone, but it sure is for me.

Quick trip into my iPod%u2026

mandolinquent said 4911 days ago (July 6th, 2005)
What makes it for me...
.. are those harsh synths that fade up from zero. It gives
you the feeling that you'res standing still between rushing
traffic, if you know what I mean. This is classic genre
music, so it's really brilliant that there is still a new twist
to it.

Sorry I haven't been catching your stuff
before now, unfortunately, I've been finding less and less
time lately, but dang, you're on. So much good stuff so little
time.

What you're getting out of the process you're talking about is
called "tape compression" it's a reason that a lot of high end
folks stuck to nice big analog 2 tracks for mastering for a
long time, analog tape produces a nice warm compression
on the signal if you run it between 0 and about 3 or so -
got some of us old-timers in trouble when we first started
doing digital. :-)

A mixed bag for me
The arrangement is excellent, wonderful touches throughout. Your voice
is just beautiful. Wow beautiful.

The lyric, forgive me, is run of the mill. I've heard pretty much every line
before. It's the only thing that brings the song down for me, but it's a big
thing.

Everything else is spot on. Keep it up.

Normaly this type of music is a little to Pop for my tastes, but the production, your singing and the overall quaity of this track knocked me out. I love the little French speaking bits thrown in. This is the most professional sounding track I've listened to on this site.

you sang over was also spectacular. I can't get over how incredible this
sounds. Words don't do justice here. Its that good.

I doesn't look like you have been too active on this site for a while, but I came across you stuff when the MJ fron-homepage autoplayer played 'Valentine for Macjams". I loved that so much I found this.

This is a super cool, warm velvety, sexy little number. I loved the production tip in your notes! I have to try that. This is totally radio ready. What do I say? I'm blown away! You have a beautiful voice. If you ever come back to the site...look me up. I'd love to do a collab with you. Or maybe me, and you and Echoroom doing a duet. It could be amazing....
