Roger and I have been talking about collaborating for a long time but couldn't agree on the right song for us. Recently, he sent me a piano piece he whipped up on an evening when his hands were injured from moving and the result was that some of the notes were hit much harder than others. I found something fascinating in the feeling that gave to the listener - an urgency which intrigued me. I cut back some of the spikes of sound using Logic but also passed one copy of the track through the 'through the wall' filter in GB, then combined them and sang over that combination. The title was Roger's idea and another common theme in the song's lyrics has to do with the 'through the wall' filter. It just sort of fell together in a handfull of emotional interpretations and this is the final result. Hope you like it. smiley

Cool vocal effect which certainly works for this tune Jeep!! Right at the head I thought it sounded like 'The Rose' (a compliment... not a comparison). The song is also a great length... not overdone in any way. Very good collab!! ~Kingdom

Thanks from both of us, Andreas and Gary! I appreciate your comments and Gary, thanks for that specific note. smiley

And, Roger, you're too kind, really... it was a lot of fun. I am just so glad you like what I did with your piano piece! Thanks so much for all the comments - very uplifting for me. smiley

Pleasure carla..
thought your interpretation with your heart felt lyrics and perfect phrasing made the song... love the hooks so many but the standout was the opening crying,,, haunting
the division of melodies seperated like a wall enhancing the lyric and the feeling of craving for an audience with the melody and of course that specatacual break where you go down and the up in a perfect almost operatic harmony was wonderful
and of course keeping exactly on the note to hit the last chorus

got the diamond hook and the farewell ending lyrically beautiful and perfect for the narative ,,,, well done Carla perfect,,,,,

@rogerboreham and @toveco - lol - sorry I missed your comments! I've been away from my computer for a while now and don't always see that comments have been added to old songs.

Tom - I put the piano in a different room for sake of the lyrics and the mood I was trying to create but don't know what effect you mean on my voice…? Maybe you're like some other friends who hate it when I use any reverb at all…?

If I ever get my recording gear up and running again, I'll see what happens if it's done differently or, if you like, you can do a Tommy mix, as Roger suggests. smiley

@toveco - I'll PM you Tom - but it won't be right away since I still don't have access to my main computer at the moment. Another few weeks, I'm guessing (doing a major overhaul of my entire creative life - art, music, poetry, everything! smiley

@rogerboreham - I rarely get upset about people wanting to change things because I like to hear other people's takes on songs I do. smiley
