Lyrics
promise
Thor Oliversen©2006

The minute we met
I felt I'd known you
for a long long time

I guess I gazed at your moves
sort of paralysed
'cause you shone like the moon
and everyone else was pale

Then I noticed you'd look at me
We started to bond
We lost what we had before
We would just have - this one

So I promise you this
I will be what you loved at first
If you promise a kiss
To water my thirst

And now, you come to me
you tell me you're here.
And now, now I see
I want you so near.

Great delivery of the same poem
A lively song, this. did not lose the impact of the love song. Still, my favorite line is water my thirst. :-| and a promise to the one you love. Thanks.

Glad you dropped by Harold. Thanks for listening and commenting.

I think it's vital to water one's thirst. It's so easy to forget what we are when we meet someone special and fall in love. We try to win them over by showing our best side. And when time goes by we tend to ease up on the charm, and find it allright to jump into the cozy slippers and sweatsuit when we get home from a day at work. Forgetting that we may not make our stars shine as bright as they used to....

Amazing stuff...
you have here. The jazzy, rock, latin treatment is perfect on this song.
Your arrangement reminds me a bit of how Steely Dan might approach
this song. You really have a great feel for putting together a song, and
it shows in this cool tune. And your singing hits the right vibes.
Way to keep those hits coming, thoddi....

Jack, nice to see you here:)
Your words brings a smile to my face. Steely Dan is a favorite, and it is a great compliment if you associate this with what they might come up with.

Thank you:)

Wow
I love this.
Your voice sounds fabulous here. I love the latin beat and the guitars
sound so smooth. Nice effects, and the backing vocals sound great.
Production is excellent...

another fav on my list from you :)

Super nice
Very cool, hot and nice. If I didnt know you were from Stavanger I'd
believe you were from the Caribians or some paradise place. Swings really
nice. Good guitar backup.

Very cool!
Guitar leads sound beautiful - what a tone! - maybe a bit
overwhelming for your voice in places. Great laid-back feel, with your
usual fantastic voice. This reminds me of something Jamiroqui might
do at a Sunday rehearsal to warm up. Very cool, with an excellent
ending. Love it!

Very cool!
Thanks you for stopping by here Neil. You and I must be the two macjammers with the longest distance between us, geographical speaking. Would be fun to meet and jam some day. It's amazing how the internet brings us close. It's like I know you and I'm sure we would be good mates:)

Hmm wonder how that aussy beer is like.. you know, american beer is like making love in a canoo.... it's f..... close to water;)

Very cool!
Thor, Aussie beer is variable - from the average (we send that - Fosters - to
Europe) to some exceptional small brewery beers. My favourites though are
British real ale (HSB and Arundell) and German wheat bier (anything from
Munich).
As far as a colab goes, I'm always interested. It would be an interesting way
to make the world smaller!

Great changes!
Wow, nice energetic change. Smooooth.

The mix is much more up front and direct than the original.

Well done!

Thoddi, Thoddi, Thoddi...
When your music shows up in my mix, it's like a wave of soothing
goodness washes down my innards - And I'm already excited about
how much phatter the wave of satiation will be when this one jumps
out of seemingly no where... It's like you've been hanging out on my
shoulder and following me around for the inspiration on your last
THREE tunes, because they have all been dead on w/ reflecting what's
been going on w/ me. Kinda spooky... And again, I too just started to
ball... Enough. I think that I am done here..

Cyd

Oh yeah, this was quite short, but sweet and I'm glad that it didn't go
on any longer - And I know that this is an odd thing to say considering
how much I liked it, but it's like it was just enough of a complete
package that left ya wanting more, but more of it the way it is... I don't
know if this makes any sense, but maybe it's not supposed to...

Thoddi, Thoddi, Thoddi...
Cyd, Cyd, Cyd, I'm so pleased to see you drop by here. Your comments is always very appreciated:) Maybe because they are always so nice;)

About me hanging around on your shoulder.. I didn't think you'd notice.. I'll have to come up with a better camouflage...

Not sure if this song will stay as a bossa, or if I'll give it a shot as a punk or blues... I like this one, but I'm not sure it has its final shape yet... Tried it out with my new band, and found that if we are to play it like a bossa, we need to get some congas and perc performers to join...

Awesome sound
Great production. Great arrangement - I love the congas! Fantastic
and funky guitar. The backing vocals are spot-on. Really, really dig it!

Awesome sound
I bought a new guitar (gretsch electomatic hollow body), and I think that inspired me to come up with the bossa style. Getting a new toy that is so smooth to play on is a pleasure, and I'm glad to hear you think its good stuff:)

FEEL said 4286 days ago (February 26th, 2006)
Wow! Outstanding
This is top notch. Very nice latin groove. Did you create the percussion
loved every bit of it all the way down to the cuica. The Guitars are right
on with the rest of the instrumentation and your vocals with the back ups
fit well to the song. This is superb and the scores don't do you justice. I
will have to change that now. Way to go!

Regards,
John

Wow! Outstanding
Oh, this is heartwarming John:) Such a great review from the man who has the latin feel in his bones. Thank you very much for such encouraging words:)

I played the percussion on my midi keyboard, and used the sounds available in GarageBands jazz drumset.
