Description
Just messing with chords and beats and this turned up and it's one of my favourite rhythms for dancing (I remember those days still LOL). I intended originally to use guitar on this, but I put the synth part in after the drums and liked the sound as it is.... it has a nice travelling through the night alone feel about it for me. Anyway, I hope you like it, M

Lyrics
It’s The Wond’rin’

It’s not the loneliness that keeps me pinin’
Or living by myself, my heart’s resignin’
To the fact, the nights get longer since you’ve gone.

It’s not the rain that patters on the window,
Or that inner voice that whispers ”Where did she go?”
Keepin’ me awake and tossin’ turnin’ through the night.

Chorus,
It’s the won’drin’ why a part of me is gone,
It’s like someone covered up, half of the Sun,
It’s the way my life is goin’;
The breeze no longer blowin’,
And knowin’ that you’re never comin’ ho-o-o-ome.

It’s not the memories that keep returnin’
Searin’ through my brain, I feel it burnin’,
Hope someone will come to save me from this Hell.

It’s not the way my dreams keep showin’
I’m handcuffed in a cellar, with nobody knowin’,
Just goes to show, how far I’ve fell.
Repeat Chorus.

It’s not the pictures whirling round in my head,
It’s not the empty space that’s in my bed,
Or the mem’ry of your voice as you came in through the door.

It’s not the thought of lonely nights,
Or even knowin; who was wrong or right,
Evcen though it seems I’ll never learn the score.
Rept. Chorus.
Rept, 1st verse and 2nd verse,

Maurice Vizard.

I agree Kenta
I could dance the night away to this beat; had to mix two loops and chop to get it. I can just see you throwin' a few 'shapes' to this LOL and I'm flattered by the DL, regards M

Hi John
Very pleased you called in and liked this... it's something on your style of song but without the wonderful keys you are able to come up with.... glad you like the 'lost voice' sound too LOL, regards M

On a roll Maurice!
A little bit of Sade and a lot of Moriz here. I'm pleased you've left the auto-harmony gadget off this time - sounds much more natural to me without it.
Perhaps a tad too long for a set of lyrics without a storyline, but I like it!
Neil

Moviz said 2697 days ago (May 2nd, 2010)
It is
Longer than I'd thought it was Neil, but I just liked the 'lost voice' and wanted to do it one more time LOL.. I was actually surprised when I saw how long it was with the clock, coz it didn't really feel that long as I sang it. I almost did use harmony on this, but natural of course, (like I have in my last few songs LOL hint , hint). Haven't heard Sade' in some time, but very pleased with that nice compliment. Thanks Neil for listening... appreciated, regards M

I don't quite get
how it is Rhythm and Blues ...or is it rhythm and bass? Whatever,it is a trip sort of Saturday Night Fever meets the 90's and a great blend it is too.Good sound,funky bass line and good strong vocals with some pretty nifty lyrics.Groovy !!

Well...
I did ask someone else here, which genre it should come under, Disco or R and B, because I've lost track (been around too long LOL) and they came back with Rand B, so it being a good rhythm and about being blue.... I went for it LOL... really pleased you like what I did here though... thanks a lot for taking a listen and for the very welcome compliments, regards M

It's The Wond'rin'
You are a versatile composer. Maybe a little wah whah guitar if any, huh? That would be cool, but not missed at all. I like your background aahs (or oh's) in the chorus. And that bass line is quite nifty. Interesting that the subject matter is similar to the last tune you posted, even though the genre is totally different. Very fun to listen, and move to - thanks!

I did consider
guitar, but thought I'd keep it simple so the 'Ahh's' would be more effective (glad you liked them Sigmund) Yes love that bass.... The subject is the same as my last come to think of it; wonder what's going on in my subconscious? LOL... keep up the dancing Sig LOL, regards M

Upbeat!
I like the vibe you're creating here! Your vox fit right into the drum + synth groove.

Not too long for me, btw: the feel of this tune seemed to call for a dreaminess best served by a longer length...

Makes me want to put on my white suit
Black shirt, and hit the dance floor.

This is absolutely amazing Maurice. Professional production, those synths in the right places and the touch of VOX here and there, the dance beat, all very tastefully put together with great musicality. Balance sounds great, and THAT VOICE - it only keeps getting better.

With a bow of thanks and admiration....
Doug

PS - the Ozone plug sounds like it's getting its workout. :)

I wonder
why are we suddenly posting disco tunes. Check my latest. Maybe in retrospect the 70s was a pretty good party, like nothing that happened before or after. Not that I actually partied much in the 70s.

Great song.
Check out my latest song called On the sly
Moviz said 2680 days ago (May 19th, 2010)
My excuse Vic
Is that I loved the music of the 70's, because although it's a pointer to that time there was also plenty variation in genre's and styles within it too ......and I was in my 30's and looked my best (after that it all went down hill). I did actually party, because I was playing live and in the middle of it all.
Glad you approve of this Vic, regards M
