Description
There was a recent forum post on what was your favorite "previously posted" song. Emma, is still one of my all time favorites. It was the first tune i finally got "panning"... thank you Jo. I thought I had lost this tune but found the rough work copy while re organizing my hard drive. I tried to reconstruct it as closely to the original as possible. I hope all will be forgiven for re posting ... but then Emma has always had a mind of her own.
Jack

Edit: There is a remix of this tune on a collab with Alannah (Her page http://www.macjams.com/artist/alannah )

Update Sept. 2010
So some of us begin the four year march. It has been fun. This song was posted early on here and recently on the "rabittwhole" page as an open collab. This version is the end....what has happened before? Please download and see what you hear.

if there is an interest in this maddness ..it is here...

Lyrics
Emma
[ a love song ]

Emma is sleeping
But I will not wake her
Will not tell her
The things that I know

So close now
What is she dreaming
Her eyes move about
All the places she goes

My love
Emma my darling
You say
I worry you still
I think
You are mistaken
Emma
Who did you kill?

Emma in back doors
In alleys and places
I follow behind
To keep her concealed

How did it happen
That she's come this far from
The Emma who loved me
Who touched and could feel?

My love
Emma my darling
You say
I worry you still
I think
You are mistaken
Emma


.... it's ok ... you can sleep

Some early morning
They're going to find you
I'll have my head turned
And you'll be gone

In the meantime
I'll follow you closely
To see you are safe
I know this is wrong

My love
Emma my darling
You say
I worry you still
I think
You are mistaken
Emma


....awake .... Emma are you awake?

sigh! :-)
A very, very fine piece of music. An adventure in sonic haute cuisine, in style, in unexplainable desires and emotions and about dangerous women! Beautiful execution; awesome layering, chord progressions, instrument changes and overall length of the piece. I am, to be honest, a bit astounded. And, to be honest, I haven't heard such a good tune for quite some time. Well, at least in this mysterious genre. Jack, you the man.

This has..
... a real 60's feel to it with the guitar and treated vocal. The vocal effect is great (what did you use?). This has moments of tension but uses the gentle waltz time to great effect.

Excellent track.

Classical
This has a very 70's Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, theme album vibe to it, while still being completely original and engaging. Romantically sweeping and tender track. I can see why it has stuck with you. DL'd and fav'd.

Very nicely done Jack!
You've done a great job on the instrumentation in particular - nice big, round bass which doesn't get in the way of the rest of the band. Vocals work really well too - a really good post.

drakonis said 3454 days ago (April 6th, 2008)
a twisted affair
as lives torque slowly away and out of control... what a nightmare. What wonderful lyrics, exquisitely disturbing music, so beautiful, so wrong. There are parts of the orchestration I would suggest could be a little clearer (at 1:50 and 2:02, about), there are some dissonances that need to stand out a little more, for now they're muddy and almost lost (perhaps a different instrument or move it up/down an octave to make it more pronounced.) But the music writing here is excellent, gorgeous melody and chords, taking us on a twisted journey. Great singing and story telling, love the whispers. Chilling.

ttfn,
Drakonis

i am very blown away by your kind comments ... can hear the parts you are talking about now on speakers ... i mixed with headphones ... always a toss up and gamble ... the work mix i had offered some challenges as well ... but then emma was pretty insistent about being released into the world again ... she can be very persuasive. thanks for the listen eduard

bud said 3454 days ago (April 6th, 2008)
I remember this - this is where I
realized that your writing rose above the normal range of rock and folk and lived somewhere in the higher realm of Burt Bacharach and Kurt Weill. Great tune.

I love this ..

.. for me it has a nice Strangler's vibe with the instrumentation .. and I love that. Way cool .. and lovely remix .. stereo field is sweet now...excellent vocals/delivery, lovely guitar, great build with the orchestration ..and I love the blend of the modern synths with classic organs and harpsichord like keys... faved and downloaded.

Awesome, creepy vibe really matches the subject matter...right then .. where did the old version go for comparison Jack? lol

Pete_NB said 3451 days ago (April 9th, 2008)
Clever
There are lots of very smart things going on here. The music perfectly catches the mood of the lyrics. It's downright creepy!

The quick flourish of notes after the "...you can sleep" break gives me goosebumps. The choice of instrumentation is perfect as well, putting me in mind of that sinister carnival music from that creepy Roald Dahl "Tales of the Unexpected" show. Emma would have loved that show I bet!

If the song doesn't topple the listener's psyche, the perfectly inflected whisper at the end is the coup de grace. Stellar!

really cool concept! 3/4 - mmmmm, my favorite.

and a wholebuncha other stuff in between mixed very nicely.
i like the effect on the very good vocal - that distance lends such a strong flavor to the whole shebang. i really enjoyed your singing.

Alannah said 3449 days ago (April 11th, 2008)
wow ...
.. this is so interestingly different .... I liked the Megaphone effect on the vocals .. but still feel you could have used the megaphone and cranked the reverb a tad to reflect the depth and deepness of your male sound (did that come out sounding creepy???) .... it might have given it that tad more richness .. while also maintaining the hollow feel of the megaphone .... luvved the tune !

interesting tip on the reverb ... actually re mixed this with a bit of less reverb than the original. i try to hide my voice weakness with effects sometimes .. but then get into too much reverb in general .... guess i should have stayed with original huh?? ..lol .. and you are the best! it is so cool to get artist comments .. the time spent to share them is a gift indeed and much appreciated .. i personally love it! so thanks lady ... thank you very much for the well placed comment!!

Wonderful song
Great lyrics - talk about evocative! I'm swept up into a world of strange and illicit love. Very cool. The music is great - lovely changes and excellent use of instrumental color. The organ is a beautiful touch, and the overall haunting vibe is perfectly realized. The effected vocal works well I think. It's the kind of thing that only works on some songs, and this is one of them. Outstanding. Kudos, my friend. Peace.

Literary
Well-crafted literature set to fitting music with a perfect arrangement. This could have come from the acid Lennon/McBrilliance that spawned Elanor Rigby or some of the Sgt. Pepper tracks. The performance goes deeper than op would allow these days.

I make it a point...
to try and re-visit songs from time to time. When I'm not working on one of my own, I'm thinking about people here on MJ and the songs they write.

I realized I needed to do another listen to Emma and I just did. I've downloaded it but it hadn't popped up in iTunes. So I went and found 'er and took another listen.

For me the 2nd or 3rd listen is when the subtle details begin to emerge and Emma certainly was hiding a few I missed on the first pass.

Jack... Amazing work! Beautiful in all aspects! Thank you for making this a download and creating Emma in the first place. A real treasure!

Chilling...
and so well done... Wow.. the megaphone effect is perfect for your speaking from a distance, into Emma's dream. The calliope sound instrumentation in the breaks is perfect for this. The subject reminded me of Pavanne, by R&L Thompson, which also gives me chills. The melody and vocals are superb in Emma (such an innocent sounding name, too) ; amazing song writing!

Wow! Jack,
this is such great story-telling. So theatrical! So eerie and yet still, familiar. If I wasn't already a fan this would have bowled me over. One amazing talent right here. Woo-hoo! Thank you.

i'm having a flashback to the 70's - that good stuff they played on album oriented FM radio stations...

A very different vibe on this one than Roxylee's song. Intriguing musical bed. Has elements of a musical, elements of carnival music but under it all is a sense of melancholy. Great job, no wonder so many people are doing versions of it.

so you're are the one responcible for my latest delight, sir. came here to see what's to know about her orignal form. i didn't realize you'd done the origninal vocals cuz nobody mentioned it, thus far, w/ the ones i've listened to. very nice work, Jack. Very nice work, indeed. it's a tune that stands on it's own the way it is, i think. you've even got me pondering what damage i might cause to mizz emma... but it'd likely be best if i end it right there, tho. thanks for putting it out there, mister sir! great job!

Diary of a Mad Man
What I'm wondering … has anybody actually talked to … or even seen … Emma? Excuse me if I'm suspicious, but all we have is the word of this fixated singer exhibiting a stalker mentality. I have this feeling things are not what they seem. I'm worried that Emma is in danger, locked up, drugged into sleep, forced to haunt back doors and alleys in captivity, followed wherever she goes.

That is, if she's even still alive. Could it be it is Emma who has been killed? Perhaps somebody should contact the FBI.
