No, I'm not dead.

Making British TV is slowly taking over my every waking hour. But as promised a looooonnnnggg time ago I said I would do a vocal version of 'Oh Yeah' and I've finally finished it. Well, not really super finished but as close as I'm going to get at the moment.

There was only really one person who could instantly leap to the challenge of coming up with something beautiful to totally boost this simple little song that I'd written years ago in a rough form. I'd never been able to put a lyric line or lead line to it, but one quick email to New York and 'Hey Presto'; JKane works absolute miracles and comes up with exactly the tone and feel I'd been looking for for years.

This song is supposed to be about those moments when you have a little epiphany and everything around you suddenly stops and you go 'oh yeah, I love life'.

J totally got it and really has done wonders on this. It's a totally different song for me in terms of the fact that I'm trying to write heavier stuff lately. However, this song gives me great comfort in the fact that sometimes the simplest things can often be the most moving.

Enjoy all.

Oh my!
This a really excellent tune!
I went back and listened to the original.
I don't know how you wrote such a lyrical song without vocals!
The vocals are perfect, like they have always been there.
The lyrics and melody follow the tone and mood of the piece to a depth that is astounding.
Nice layering and fx. Kudos to JKane!
The song itself was and still is totally solid.
Well aranged and produced.
Guitar is heavenly. even have some beguiling little twists in the chord structure that give it flavor and keep it from getting sappy. (some subtle reverse in there?)
Especially like the open , unresolved chords at the end!
Key pads are light and airy, mixed very wide field for depth.
The only tidbit it is missing is bass. Either the bass is mixed very flat or it was acoustic.
A really nice expressive electric fretless would sound perfect on this. It needs solidifying on the bottom.
An amazingly beautific piece!

Stunning..

jkane, you sound brilliant. Samboway, this track is beautifully crafted and jkane settles into it perfectly. My favorite jkane vocal? Perhaps.

Wonderful collab.

Oh yeah, there it is. Thanks Sam for asking me to be on this track. Your music is always 'complete' and well thought out - easy to work with. And you are most certainly not dead! Lots of stars for you sir and hopefully British television will have some reruns in the near future, so we can all benefit from more of your creations.

This is a song I've been trying to take a close listen to for a couple of days, and finally was able to this evening. I'm only able to listen to it right now on headphones, so I can't comment on the production right now. I'm downloading this one to take a closer listen to it on speakers. I did like the panning of the vocal tracks though, but wish you'd post lyrics. jk is such an excellent lyricist that it's a shame not to pass on those words. Sam, it sounds like you wrote this for jk to sing to. Actually, I can't imagine this song sounding complete without his vocals. This was a great collab, and a very good choice of vocalist for this tune. jk is the undisputed king of the layered vocal tracks -- I really haven't come across anyone else who does it like he does. A really great feel-good tune. Thanks for sharing it.

EDIT 8/24/06: See below. Had a chance to listen out loud today.

I may have forgotten to send them to Samboway. Here ya go:


Do you remember
the places we were?
Do you remember
the words to the songs?

Can you remember
the sweat and the tears?
Can you feel the wind
that blew away the years?

In all I've imagined
it was just a fantasy.
I hold dear to all
the things you said.

Like your picture
upon the wall.
Now it hangs in my memory.
The sound of your voice
stays eternally in me.

(solo).

Can you remember?
Can you feel the wind (that blow away the years)?

Oh yeah.
yeah...
yeah...

Thanks J. I hadn't got a copy of them. I am going to try and boost the vocals at the start. They really are beautiful and fit the song so well.

Thanks once again.

Well, I had a chance to listen to the track on my monitors, and I'd have to say, aside from the vox being perhaps just a smidge low in the mix at the onset (previously mentioned, but certainly not distracting in its current form), the rest of the tune sounds very well balanced. On headphones, bass appears to be lacking, but played through monitors, it's sounding totally AOK to me. Great tune!

This is amazing. Since I listen to this stuff mostly with heads I have to say that it needs more bass-- but I also hold Ignoramus' opinions very seriously too.

Great stuff!
