Description
NotSoSweet posted this original song titled "Old Friends" here: www.macjams.com/song/45809. I heard it ... and yes ... again ... could not resist an "Alannah Tinker".

What are your first thoughts in the morning when you wake up? I know what mine are ..... I wake up and think about someone .... someone who needs me to think about them at that moment .... I cannot explain what this is ... or why it is ... it just is ... I think about people .... people are in my thoughts .. and I believe they are in my thoughts when they need to be in my thoughts ..... and when they no longer need to be there .... they are not .....

ok ... enough of the "weirdness" of my thoughts ..... I hope you enjoy the tune!

I could not resist the "siren piano playing of NotSoSweet" .....

Lyrics
Hi baby – I love your smile
In the mornings
Even if it’s only in
My imagination
But maybe it’s in yours too

Thinking of you
When the dew
Is fresh on the ground
Thinking of you in the morning
I know you think of me too

Good Morning Baby
I love it when
You smile at me
In the mornings

Thinking of you
When it’s still dark outside
And I am warm and safe
In my fantasy blanket

Thinking of you
Do you think of me too
Do you hug your pillow closer
And continue to dream

Sleepy – its better when you’re sleepy
And your mind can roam
Into far away places
So far away from home

Where you and I are asleep
I see your smile
When I first wake

Brava... x2
I really like Notsosweet's piano work here, I can see why you were drawn to it. And your initial spoken part sent shivers down my spine, excellent delivery. Your singing was on the edge of too strong for this gentle tune, but overall, the lyrics and thoughts here were very nicely done, I think. And dare I say, the PERFECT amount of reverb and echo :-)
ttfn,
Drakonis

WOW ......
.. the day finally arrived ... Drakonis said the "PERFECT amount of REVERB ..." ... I think it's getting chilly down south ..... and yes .. NotSoSweet's piano tune DID and DOES inspire ...... and ... since when has "MY DELIVERY" ever been anything but STRONG ! heh heh ... For me ... NotSoSweet's (gentle?) piano tune did not sound (gentle) ... it emoted a strong sound ... which is likely why I recorded a stronger sounding vocal with it .... but I always LIKE it when I hear how people are able to interpret a piece of music with such a diverse and different opinion .... thanks Drak for being such a loyal and supportive "commenter" on my "tinkers" ....

Hey!
The best thing with "Eduard" is that he is honest... Okay! I don't see him too much on my tunes BUT still I like his comments.... bla bla bla

Alannah, the only thing I can say is I love this tinker(s) you do & your voice.
BTW it was nice to woke up and find this... Good song to start the day.

Peace

What a voice
very Nina Simone in the lower register. Great duet that sounds sexy and honest at the same time. I need one of those fantasy blankets, do you quilt them?
Alannah said 3904 days ago (November 11th, 2008)
ah yes ....
.. the "fantasy blanket" ... I think everyone needs one of those .... I would probably make whacks of money if I did know how to quilt them ... perhaps it's just my excuse to not get out of bed in the morning ... heh heh

Thanks Tiler ...
... it's always a pleasure when you visit one of my posts .... currently this is one of my favs too .... there is definitely something to be said for an acoustic piano or an acoustic guitar without all the extra frills .... it's simple .. and it just .... "is what it is" .....

What a gift you have
in taking an instrumental and making it all yours with adding words. Just wonderful how you convey the emotion of the lyrics in a gentle, wistful way. Great collab! Threpiano is perfect with your voice. :-)

Thanks Roxy ....
.... I like the way you put it .... I tend to think that I basically "hijack" someones song ... and then insinuate myself right into the middle of it .... hahaha but your way sounds so much better !

Classic croon
I hear the Simone - but I think your lower register also evokes Lisa Gerrard - which is a good thing. A stirring piece - very personable and enchanting.

... "tinker" ....
... yes I hope I never stop "tinkering" cause it's such great fun ... I am lucky that there are so many gracious Macjammers here who allow me to "tinker" with their tunes ....

... yes "intimate" is a great way to describe it .... because I think there is always an intimate relationship between ourselves and our thoughts ... especially the ones we have while we are all cozy, safe and snug in our beds ....

sloparts said 3904 days ago (November 11th, 2008)
The only thing wrong with this,
is that it ends too quickly.

I love your feeling and interpretation on this Alannah. This music evokes strong, passionate emotion and you delivered that in spades. And yes, the reverb is perfect, as Drak said.

I had a hard time understanding all the lyrics, but that because of my hearing loss, not your singing or your mix.

Excellent work Alannah, thanks for the listen and the download.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Thanks Ed ....
... for your very nice comments ... feel free to CRANK the volume on any of my tunes by merely slotting it into your software .... and remixing at a higher volume ... haha I know I have done that from time to time on songs that I have downloaded that didn't sound loud enough to me.

I keep meaning to get over here to comment on this, and keep forgetting. So sorry...my bad! Beautiful, as always. Your voice resonates deeply, so full of heart and soul. I love the background vocals you did on this one. I think you fit your vocals perfectly into the beautiful spaces left by the piano. Gorgeous!

FEEL said 3889 days ago (November 26th, 2008)
I usually think
about work and how things could go wrong and I end up with the urgency to fix the problem right away, The biggest problem is that I can't in the middle of the night. It's good to know that you think of others and their well being. I can appreciate that. Beautiful piano piece accompanied by a wonderful voice. Enjoyed this very much.

Yeah John .....
... sometimes I get these ideas in my head in the middle of the night too ... and they fester there and make me crazy cause I want to FIX them or deal with them RIGHT NOWWWWWWWWWW .... but I have to work on it real hard ... to let it goooooo ..... these things eventually will sort themselves out in time .... what I really need to learn is patience .... but I am glad you liked the tune .. and believe me .. its true .. I wake up every morning and someone pops into my head ... so I go make coffee ... crawl back into bed ... curl up in my blankets .. drink the brew and think about stuff .... and people .....

dark club mood maker
I love this lyric:

And I am warm and safe
In my fantasy blanket

It is very good the way it is. What I picked up is that there is a contrast between the sweet tone of the piano notes and your sultry vocals. I would like the piano to come closer to your vocal tones. But I'm not sure if that's right, because the contrast works too. I imagine a singer in a dark club, setting a solemn mood.

This is so pretty.
This is so lovely! I like the pairing of the light, tinkly (sorry, can’t think of a better word) piano with your deep, emotive voice. A winner in my book.
