Lead With Your Heart (with Fran Dagostino Band feat. Futzpucker)

Description
This has been a couple of months in the making. I started with the chords and then the vocal melody and then sent it to Fran (Ziti) to add guitars and produce. At one point I mentioned that organ would sound great on the song... before I knew it, Futzpucker had added Hammond B3 along with some killer piano licks. I was loving how it was coming together- could it get any better? Then Zeets surprised me with his incredible guitar playing... and also live drums and bass provided by the his band mates, Fran and Bryan Bishop.

I like to think of this as a song of hope. Much gratitude to Ziti, Futzpucker and to our mutual pal, Droop (Paul). Paul had given me feedback on the initial rough draft of this song along with some great advice.... essentially, take your time with it... make it the best you can. He was a man who preferred quality over quantity and appreciated the simple things in life. Patrick, Fran and myself are honored to have been able to call him friend and brother. This one's for you, Paul.

Lyrics
Do What I say
and lead with your heart
don't them them tell you
that you don't matter

try any way
be at ease with yourself
everyone knows you're an angel inside

it won't matter now
and it won't matter then
just open your eyes
and see that I love you

there'll come a time
when we'll be just friends
remember love's to be spent
not for saving

there'll come a day
when the world will be ours
and the promise of friendship and love will be mated

come with me now
into the great beyond
and let your heart come away warmer

it sounds like nonsense
just words that don't rhyme
they mean nothing but I love you

just open your eyes
and lead with your heart
and don't let them tell you
that I don't need you
... and you don't need me

Very touching
This is a really touching song. The lyrics are comforting even if a little sad. I really enjoyed the classic rock arrangement and performances. You guys really made it the work of a band. I can picture the tour bus.

Loved the solo work, Fran. The organ, was a great idea to go with this. Great work, Futz. Live, slammin drums sound great, too.

The mix sounds really good in my headphones. Was sounding a bit murky through my Bose speakers though.

Rock on, guys!

Hey Peter
Glad you liked the song. The lyrics came out almost exactly the way they are here... with a couple of minor tweaks. Somehow it all makes sense. I think it's unusual as a love song... more about offering advice to someone you care about... friend, child or family member that is having a hard time finding their way, etc.

I know you've been busy, my friend. Your comments are much appreciated!

Lead with your heart
Mellow instrumental introduction - which takes its sweet time to set the stage - nicely anticipating the tempo of the singing ... and also reflecting the late Droop's advice (take your time with it).

The lyrics - while certainly telling a story of romatic love and friendship - also hint at the broader philosophical concerns of ... well, love and friendship : >

The instrumental outro is a wonderful contrast to the easy-going intro, as it rachets-up the emotional intensity.

Hey Warren
I was very pleased with Futz and Zeets additions to this. Initially it was just my acoustic and vocal... then Patrick added the organ and piano and Ziti (and the Bishops) took care of the rest. It really exceeded my expectations and my imagination. We contemplated adding a couple of measures onto the end to give the boys some extra time to play.

what a time we had
adam sent this song to me, and as with a lot of adams music, it took me a few listens to get it. Adam writes music in a style that i never listen to -ever- the john mellencamp/tom petty american anthem sort of rock. Not that i dont like that style...it just isnt my cup of tea...i certainly appreciate the recordings made by these guys. Adams songs are so simple that sometimes the depth of them eludes me on first listen....but I did know immediatly that i wanted to try my hand at producer for this song...i didnt expect to fall in love with it, however.

It is the first time I have asked my band mates to work with me on a collab...Bryan has before, but not the Bishop rhythm section. I played them the song at rehearsal and they happily agreed to play some bass and drums...Frans drums were in three takes, Bryan in one take.

I was going to try having us all play the song together live...but we layered it. It was very good practice for us. I am thinking of making the band available to record tracks for anyone who needs them, for a modest fee.

Paul was here so briefly...but had a profound influence on Adam...and myself as well. Adam was devastated at pauls passing, and this song is made with all the love and respect we could muster. Adam is one world class, first rate human, and I love him with all my heart.

I cant say enough about Patrick Feehan....he is another remarkable friend made at MJs, a man that i feel as though I have known my whole life. he plays and writes MUSIC.

best all...thanks for the comments!

Great great stuff
For some reason, this had little trickling feelings of Al Stewart in places (with the melody and the piano work and Adam's smooth voice). I really loved all the touches, and having a real band behind it all felt great. I did seem to notice a super-minor timing thing near the beginning, where the electric guitar (slightly on the left side) seemed ever-so-slightly out-of-time (slightly ahead?) of everyone else, but then it went back in synch later I think. But this is a superb piece of music writing, lyrics, singing, and performing, really moving song, and nice to listen to as well.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Now that's a first
never been compared to Al Stewart before... so it's cool. Drak- I appreciate your attention to detail and honest assessments. I'm not sure what part (timing) you are referring to... it seems pretty tight to me. That said, I always give my collaborators the freedom to play what they feel... in this case, it feels right. Then again, I've never been accused of perfectionism. :)

You always give something to think about in your critiques... and that is much appreciated! Thanks!

What beautiful lyrics and what a sweet vocal performance from you, Adam. Fran and Patrick and the boys did a wonderful job, too.

I just love the words to this. Sometimes the simplest songs can be the most powerful and affecting and this is no exception. You're such a good guy, Adam, and it's always such a treat to get a new song from you.

Hey David
I was thrilled when Fran said he'd produce this (and add guitar)... there was talk of maybe his band mates playing as well... but no guarantee. Bottom line is this turned into a great team effort and I'm extremely pleased at how these PRO's brought this to life.

apb said 3239 days ago (June 16th, 2008)
Oooh ..

.. this is quite something: I kinda overall classic 60s Kinks-ish feel .. mainly from the production values and Procol Harum keys with a fair bit of modernising in the form of Fran's fine lead licks.. a melody/pattern that reminded me a little like a mesh of "the streets of London" (Ralph McTell?) and "Overkill" (Men at work)... it also had a kinda jiguma/Vic Holman ish thang in there too.. can I say that? Might be a twang of accents lol

All this makes for a very enjoyable well performed and arranged song- well done to you all, excellent collab., well mixed too... live drums too .. soft laid back vocal delivery worked very well too... love those little piano twiddles at the break down too. Alot to
enjoy.

Procol Harum....
Yeah. Definitely... that's exactly the sound, isn't it? Very cool that you reference Neil and Vic- to of my favorite MJers! What's great about collaboration is how you can take people with completely different musical experience and ideas and fuse them together and make it sound pretty darn good. It clearly makes it easier for a hack like me to trick folks into thinking I'm a musician... LOL.

Seriously- these guys are not only outstanding musicians but they are just plain good people!

Heart
This piece is full of heart and soul. Brilliant group of people gathered together for this. Adam, I think it's a testament to the message and energy of the song that you got such amazing talents to participate. You have written a beautiful tune with very touching lyrics - your vocals were wonderfully smooth. Ziti, as always, your guitar work is amazing. And Patrick, those subtle key licks you added are perfect. Again I am amazed at what is possible through the internet - bringing you all together. And, as always, I am in awe at the bonds music can help to create. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Good song
and good, nay great, playing all around.

But I find the production a bit muddy. Lotsa reverb that pushes everthing way back. Even though this is not a particularly aggressive song, I could have used a bit more directness.

super collab guys
I'm with Neil here on The Wilbury sound. all good by me!

Very nicely played out on all levels. Excellent vocals Adam

Stunning guitar Fran

The keyboards by Patrick rounds this out nicely.

I guess that's the cool thing about this site. Is that collaborations can go very smoothly. It's cool to find folk's that can easily be on the same page and sound like they have played together for years. This is a mighty fine example of that.

Glad
I checked this one out! Really good song - tight playing - the keyboards and the lead guitar remind me a bit of Al Stewart (as does the pitch of your voice). I'm only listening through some, not so good, headphones at work but the mix sounds pretty good and I'm sure it'll sound much better through some decent gear.

Nicely done.

How cool is this! Great song - the lyrics are outstanding, filled with memorable, thought-provoking lines ("remember love's to be spent
not for saving") and a wonderful sentiment, albeit tinged with a hint of sadness. Your singing on this is truly wonderful - expressive, warm, and very nicely phrased throughout. Outstanding. The drums and bass are nice, and the guitar just rocks. Ziti, you are the king. Love that organ sound, too. It gives it a wonderful, aching soulful edge that works perfectly. A great post. I'm so glad to see your name with a music symbol beside it!! Very cool. Nicely done, my friend. Kudos to everyone involved. Peace.

What is the coolest is how you picked up on my favorite line of the song! In fact, the lyrics were just random, free-style words to fill in the melody line... very little change to the final. I was surprised how well they seemed to work in this song. Thanks again! Truly very appreciated for your time and comment!

I know I'm late
this was postd while I was away... wow Adam...what a great resourse MJ is to say the least... to think that you can be anywhere in the world, and get Fran and Patrick to flesh out your work... great song...

2 things stuck me though, and I don't know if you have control over this track, but the drums are too compressed for my ear... the whole track sounds organic, but the drums are very squashed, I would rather hear them breath inside the mix...

sorry about the nits, but I'm also wanting a bridge that doesn't arrive.. my ears are waiting... I think that Fran addresses this somewhat with dynamics to keep it interesting... this is a straight forward (TomPetty) sort of classic rock tune... so I still want to hear that moment that emerges and goes for the throat...

the whole thing still wafts over like a breeze blowing off a Strawberry Field from yesteryear...

the lyric is compelling and keeps pulling us forward... like a sirens song... like hearing directions from someone who can see past the horizon... a tad etherial, and the thing that I love about it is you hold to this vibe all thru... very complete, you've captured something special....

peace Paul

Eagles
Reminds me quite a bit of the Eagles, especially "Takin' It Easy." I like the guitar work and the B3 organ stuff.

Chord changes are very natural and work well.

Love the guitar solo! Really 'in the pocket' and radio-ready.

Lyrics are well-constructed. I didn't even realize that they did not rhyme until you sang that!

OK, the second guitar solo sounds a lot like the Allman Brothers Band song "Ramblin' Man."

You've got loads of talent, Adam. I wish you the best in your music career.

to lend their talent, you had to have been the right lines, the ones that were labeled, "Great at what they do". That's the only way really good music evolves. And this just goes to show you that people can be on the same page, even though geographically, they are miles apart. It is magic. Thanks, all.

Very Cool!
Sorry I missed this during my hard-drive debacles. Love the lyrics. That chord progression is addictive; very cool. Really sounds great; the bandmates are awesome. Must've been a blast doing this.

Unexpected
I gotta be honest, the first 30 seconds of this I thought this song was going to bore me to tears, but then it wouldn't let me go. This is an outstanding piece of music that hits me in the heart and gut at the same time. Vaguely reminds me of the band Daniel Amos.

Lead With Your Heart...
…still resonates with me, and reminds me of my first time on MacJams…why I loved Fran's work and wanted you to sing on one of my songs...and, now with Fran's passing, it brings more of a tear to my eye than it did the first time I listened to it.

Sang in high school many years ago- I've been playing guitar on and off for the last twenty years and still don't know what the heck I'm doing. Don't ask me what chords, notes, or keys I'm playing in- I use the force when I play! I wrote my first two... [see more]
