A Ballad about unrequited love from theGranz (Composer) and Mystified (Lyricist). This version brought to you by jayman (orchestrator / arranger)

Back in November I began to work on a Project with Matt (theGranz) and Mystified. It was a song that was the brainchild (he also composed the chord structure) of Matt and had some amazing vocals and lyrics supplied by Mystified. It was a pretty tough time of year for me, and I actually started working on this tune. Needless to say, it kind of took off in a different direction than what was intended at the time. The Original can be found here.

http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=49906#

This song means a bunch to me, for many different reasons .. And I wanted to take a moment and thank theGranz and Mystified for letting me post my hearts version of Matt's amazing chord progression.

Thanks for giving it a listen....

Jayman

Most of the voices are from Jampack Symphony Orchestra, all played in real time to Mysti's vocal track.

Lyrically attractive. The piano is strong and the vocalist works with that very sensitively, working between the power of the keys and the whispering. I can tell that something big is about to happen from the entry of the strings and you keep me hanging on for that, yeah (LOL) I'm expecting the powwr4 chords ... until I begin to realize, it's going to be an orchestral build (should have read the blurb) ... so I was pleased to find no stadium cliches. smiley The whole job is very nice, and the vocals (unaccountably!) remind me of Susan Sarendon.
p.s. I went out to the Granz version, which has great clear production and great guitars. I think a version that somehow combined the two and added kit would be wholly remarkable. smiley I believe that Jayman could pull it off! Again, I wish remark on the attractive vox.

Unrequited love is sadly an always good inspiration for great art. This is no exception. This is a wonderful masterfully orchestrated piece. Poetic lyrics, great arrangement and a wonderful and heartfelt vocal delivery from Mystified.
An instant classic.

I really loved this song when I first heard it. Matt at his immaculate best and that Mystified young lady is just magnificent. This version does not disappoint either. Love the intimacy of the piano with the vocals at the beginning. The orchestral feel is a great touch and gives it an added sensitivity. I can see this working well live with a grand orchestra. A must fav.

Thanks for all the very nice comments here...

I'm glad that you posted up this version, jayman. It's lovely.
The stars are for you and Matt.

When Matt sent me a sketch instrumental of this song and asked if I would put some vocals down to it, it was a 'right time and place' instance, I suppose.

It certainly helps to have reference to the things you're singing about...

I believed the lyrics and loved the piano arrangement. Very powerful.
Everything is in place - vocals are powerful and shining through.

I can really tell you poured your soul into this arrangement, however, some of the orchestration elements seemed to get in the way (just personal taste thing).
I think it's mainly the high strings - they just don't quite sound believable.

I hope it's not offensive to say - just to my ears, the strings are taking away from the emotional power and adding a "cheese factor". Just my 2 cents. (I'm very familiar with cheese myself).

Anyway - back to the piano - that's awesome stuff. Wonderful progression.
Well done to all involved.

I wouldn't pay much mind to a fish that think's he's a cow... the symphonic instrumentation is fab. Mysti sings like Karen Carpenter here and that's right in line with your brilliant piano playing. You got it together mate.

Your welcome Jayman - I suppose I should have just shut up - but wanted to try and write a proper critique and hopefully be constructive.

It was subjective and just personal taste after all - so probably fell sort of constructive.
Glad it wasn't offensive.

A lot of beauty and heartfelt realty packed into this song. I remember hearing this mix and being wowed...what seems like a decade ago (but only about a year really). If this tune doesn't grip the pit of your stomach...you ain't listening or you ain't lived. Great vocal performance, dripping with pathos. Fine arrangement.

WoW! Forget about it- This is my favorite!
The piano makes my music senses tingle
Again the flute is just breath taking.
I have loved Mystified since her first song I heard, fabulous lyrics on this one
I can feel the emotion spill out of this song!! That's my type of music!!
Great collab!!
LOVED IT
