Description
mbehar sent me a lovely jazz piano track and I had a great time finding a melody (it was easy with such great material to work with) and writing some lyrics. I decided to twist the old cliché 'saving for a rainy day' and then gave it my belting best. We then asked iGStudio if he'd add some of his magic jazz sax. Here is the result; I hope you enjoy it!

Joanna : vocals/lyrics
iG-STUDIO ; tenor sax
mbehar ; bass/piano/percussion

Lyrics
I've been saving my love
For a rainy day
I've been waiting for clouds
To form
Wondering when they're gonna storm

I've been saving my love
For a rainy day
When the sun keeps shining on high
I say good-bye
To every guy I see

Cuz nothing makes me wanna
Fall in love
Cept a rainy rainy day
Stormy skies above
Make me want a fiancée

I've been saving my love
For a rainy day
Praying and hoping and
Waiting for clouds to come my way

(solo)


Been saving my love
For a rainy day
I can feel the time is near
For him to come my way

Then you walked in
Stole the sun from the sky
Made the pouring rain start to fall
Oh my baby
Lord I've wanted
Nothing but you in my heart at all

I quit saving my love
Cuz it's that rainy day
Hooray
It's pouring, gushing and storming love on me
Hear the thunder crashing
Love is raining on me

Super slinky
Joanna, for someone who claims to have no ambition beyond singing in your own living room you certainly sound like you belong up there on a spotlit stage in a glittery dress and being whistled at! But maybe that's the point ... you sing with such relish and confidence because you're doing it for its own sake and enjoying the moment.

You've clearly got some very talented collaborators who have given you the musical support to make your voice really shine. Much as I would have loved to hear your attempt at a faux-sax, having the real thing takes your music to a whole new level.

It's great to see you posting at MacJams again. It's been too long!

Has been resurrected. This is truly one of my favs of yours. The words are really something.

I don't know if I could think of a better tune that fits your style like a glov than this. This is TREAT !

Terrific Joanne! I think you just pushed the classic jazz sound much higher here.

It has a classic feel to it.
I like the pace here. Its like being in one of those black and white movies that take place in a night club with a lovely singer backed up by a band. Loving it.

Wowsers!
This is a sweet treat! I love technology, but nothing beats real instruments - this is the real deal. If I heard this while out on the town, my attention would be absolutely undivided - great vocals and lyrics, instant standard here! The sax is like honey, the bass cool and slinky, the piano is to DIE for! Tasty, tasty, tasty - the drums have a lot of steppin' to do, to keep up with the real vibe, but they fade into the background with such compelling performances on the soundstage. Love the good feeling all around, way to go you guys!

What can I say--I'm a rain fan--
And this will have to have a place in my catalog of rain songs...

Kind of a nice reverse of the usual rainy day cliches and expectations... THIS rainy day's a GOOD thing...

lovely splash!
Joanna, I see you stompin' in the puddles with a big grin on your face! Wonderful piece of music, beautifully performed on piano/bass (MB!) and sax (IG!)... but Joanna's a great one for turning rainy days upside down with such creatively eloquent wordsmithing... and then to sing it so well. I wish you a lifetime of that kind of rainy day activity!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Now
this is what I meant in my comment to your later song. I should have listened to this first. You are a 'natural' and I love your voice and your treatment of the song. Great classic treatment of this nice song, regards M
