Description
Amadeus (pictured above) posted an unfinished intrumental song 90 seconds long and a verse and chorus of pop lyrics.

http://www.macjams.com/song/40730

He was looking for a specific kind of singer whose style fits the song. The soundbed was crystal clear and the beat and rhythm of this song was as catchy as can be. I thought it would be fun to make something out of this snippet one afternoon. I expanded the song to more than three minutes and gave it the Backstreet Boys treatment :-) I created the melody and added some strings, fill-in drums and a few percussions. I thought it turned out pretty good. After completion, I then thought Amadeus' lyrics sounded just right for the pop flavor of this song.

Lyrics
EVERY MORNING
(Melody and vocals by Leon)
These are just teaser lyrics; the other verses have not been released yet by Amadeus.
__________________________

(Chorus)
Ev'ry morning when I get out of bed,
Ev'ry evening when my whole life seems so sad,
Ev'ry moment there's nothing I can do,
I just want to be close to you.

1.
Well, this is a tricky situation
I'm desperate, confused as you can see
I can't longer hide my infatuation
I'm seriously torn as I can be

Because I love you
And I hope you feel the same way
Because it's you I'm thinking of all day
And I just want to say
that I'm in love with you.
No one else, I want only you.

(Chorus)
Ev'ry morning when I get out of bed,
Ev'ry evening when my whole life seems so sad,
Ev'ry moment there's nothing I can do,
I just want to be close to you.

2.
Well, this is a tricky situation
I'm desperate, confused as you can see
I can't longer hide my infatuation
I'm seriously torn as I can be

Because I love you
And I hope you feel the same way
Because it's you I'm thinking of all day
And I just want to say
that I'm in love with you.
No one else, I want only you.

(Chorus) 3X
Ev'ry morning when I get out of bed,
Ev'ry evening when my whole life seems so sad,
Ev'ry moment there's nothing I can do,
I just want to be close to you... (fade)

Wow I'm first ... I'm first ....
... Leon ... I too listened to this tune and had an entirely different take on it ..... but WOW man .... now my version just .. well ... just sux ... hahahaha you need to go away now ! You are putting me to shame ! As usual ... your ability to toss in those multi tracks and make them all just BLEND like magic is just THAT ... MAGIC ! I wish you could come to my house ... set up my gear properly ... and teach me a mixing trick or two .... (I'll bring the dog) ..... nice job my friend ... now I gotta get your superb version outta my head before I get drunk enough tonight to tinker with this tune myself ....

Alannah...
Thanks for dropping by to listen... Why do we seem to be drawn to the same songs a lot of times? Haha! I think we have the same taste, so I am pleased to know that. Just different styles but we have an appreciation for the same beauty when we see one.

I certainly would be interested to hear your version. I am not competing, I made that clear to Amadeus. I did it for the fun, and if he wanted my voice on it, great. If not, that's his decision, but I really had great fun with this.

As for the mixing, I think you know more than you think. I don't do anything magical with my vocal mixing... I just follow my instincts. Thanks for the effusive praise. Same goes from me to you! :-)

Dude...

Hi, Vic...
Wow.. that was a huge vote of confidence for my voice... Not sure I can do the news, but will the phone book be okay? Ha-ha! You guys are too generous. I listen to other singers/musicians here and I am kinda jealous of their abilities. Thanks a lot, and I'm keeping it real :-)

Wow
As always your voice is for me so nice on every song I hear from you.
And this lovely lyrics goes right in to my heart... It's so close my life I have right now... A life I really enjoy, to be close to my love and woke up together is for me a dream who come true.

Nice take on "Amadeus" post u r a pro.

Kenta and Linda,
Man, we've missed you for even the short time you were gone. I hope you and Linda are having fun! I wish you both the everlasting bliss of love. You said the lyrics applied to your life right now... Wow, you must really be in LOVE! I'm glad that this song expresses those feelings. Thanks, both of you!

mercy,mercy,mercy,......what pipes....i keep saying i need to write a song for u to sing on...this just reaffirms my fanboy status!

p.s.: i'll give a stab at writing something ,,if u would grace it with your great voice....

Leon said 3633 days ago (March 15th, 2008)
Wow...
For you to even think of writing a song for me to sing on is quite an honor. I have actually repeatedly thought of asking you to play guitar on even one of my songs, but you know I am such a fan of yours that I felt too shy to ask. Now that you've opened up the possibility, I will definitely ask you when the opportunity comes. With your guitar skills and my singing style, a soaring ballad with a Spanish or RnB style arrangement might seem fitting.

Thanks, McBoy! Now you got me all excited. :D

'Song in
need of a singer' - well I'd say it found one, although 'singer' is a little bit of an understatement.
Cheers

Thanks, Len
Truly appreciate your admiration of this little effort. It was borne out of fun and love for music, so even a little musical segment can grow into something big enough to enjoy. Your kind remark just made me smile!

I knew when i first herd this it was a perfect Leon bed. You really mixed it up nicely. Your voice sounds fantastic. I think you've captured the POP element perfectly. Just like the original Amadeus track expressed. Nice job

Amadeus' Song
OMG - can you sing or WHAT?? Your voice, and the way you mixed it is so excellent! This song should win a major prize now! I need to go to your cataloge and hear more of you - thanks for posting this, what a great way to start my Saturday! (I got here a day late)

More and More...
your vocal talents become more obvious, Leon. From the very beginning I could hear the potential and am so glad to monitor your progress.

While you DO have a great set of pipes, as Mcboy points out, what really makes your performances shine is the passion that you imbue in them... and that is where your passion finds its most productive home.

Really nice job on extrapolating a feel for Amadeus' instrumental and emerging with this dynamic performance. ;)

Ready for primetime!
you should really do something professionally you have the voice for sure, good job on tackling this!
said 3632 days ago (March 16th, 2008)
Great Voice
The voice makes the diffence here.

I came to think of Clark Anderson when I heard this. Please follow link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYxAI7vUjX4

In my opinion the lyrics and the vocaling around is very good but ..... I think you can improve the sound of the percussion. Just my opinion.

Sing some more my friend ..... You are ready for prime time. No Joke.

Best Regards Claus
amadeus said 3632 days ago (March 16th, 2008)
Impressive!
This is indeed very, very good! As I already told Leon, it's more than I'd ever expected when I posted the playback. Although this is a complete different melody than stated :-) You're definitly a hot candidate for the final mixdown. But Alannah, I really would like to hear your interpretation as well.

Please excuse my tardiness Leon!
You've worked a small miracle on this. Clear backing though.

What an amazing voice you have - excellent vocal and brilliant harmonies - you sure have nailed the Backstreet Boys style. I'd usually avoid listening to this style, but I'm hanging around because it's just so stunning - you have severe talent my friend!
