Description
Another song remix; this one is originally from 2007. It's a somber/soulful collaboration with Thor Oliversen (thoddi). I've been fortunate to do a few collabs with Thor. As most of you know he is a soulful songwriter and musician, and he brings a lot to this song. I think this remix is an all-around better sounding track than the original. We hope you like it!

By the way, if you want to listen to a cool James Brown tribute song written by Thor, here's our collab, also from 2007 >>> Sweets For My Babe

Jack: vocal, acoustic guitar, bass
Thor: electric guitar, organ

Lyrics
Just Go

Maybe it's me,
But I've got this feeling.
There's somethng I need to know.
Girl, can you tell me,
What's on your mind?
Do you want me love or want to go?

Cause lately the small things are speaking so loud.
How you no longer reach for my hand.
And just the other day as you went out the door,
You didn't turn to say goodbye,
To this man.

Instrumental

What I'm trying to say.
Sitting here with you,
As you turn your eyes away.
Though my love for you,
Still rests in my heart,
If you want to go then,
Please don't stay.

What we had was a precious thing.
But there's no use in pretending... no, no.
Has the music stopped for you?
Is this the last dance... well, then
Please just go.

So many great collabs by so many over the years here at MJ. Glad to know you think this one is part of that. Thor is killer for sure. Just two amazing performances. So glad he added his music to this.

Thanks and take care,

Very
emotive, more somber than most of your songs. Sweet and poignant. You got me into the mood. :)

Well...
every now and then I get a little somber. This is one of those times, I guess. But as you intimate, a somber mood is sometimes a good place to go to.

Thanks,

Jack

this mix sounds fab to me. Everything plays well with others, and the vocal really shines. Thor adds some tasty tasty color.

I count it good to have you chime in on this song. Tell me more about the click. I'm not attentive enough to my mixes, and I must have missed that. I much appreciate your comments on the writing and my vox... as well as Thor's keyboards and choice guitar licks.

Mellow and soulful, a singer-songwriter kind of tune. Good lyric and vocals, the electric is the icing on the cake.

thanks Dave. Singer-songwriter... isn't that what we want to be known as? So you've given me a big compliment. Thanks! And yes, high marks for Thor and his icing on the cake.

Bit by bit....

I'm bringing back some of the songs deleted back in 2008. It's especially nice to get a remix that's a collab. Always felt a little bad that the collabs went down with the ship. But that is turning out to be an unintended blessing, as I've been remixing them and coming up with better tracks than the originals.
Thanks Roxylee!

Ed Hannifin said 2724 days ago (June 5th, 2010)
Nice thick mix....
Nicely balanced....

This song reminds me just a bit of Nick Drake's 'Northern Sky'....

Thor's electric guitar is quite perfect for this tune....

This is one of my favorite collabs with one of my favorite artists here at MJ. Completely my honor to share a turn with Thor.

Throbbing Organ!
How's that for a headline? But the distorted Hammond out front is such a great sound. Thor's electric guitar fills range from twangy Strat to almost pedal steelish. Lovely changes, well written song. Really like the dry vocal recording.

Dadai.2 said 2723 days ago (June 6th, 2010)
Quite a headline indeed :)
But yes, Thor's Hammond just kicks butt. You've given some generous comments to our song. Thanks.

And...

cheers!

Great song!!!
You have some great melodies that remind me of someone but I can't think who. Maybe it's a matrix of a lot of great songs I've heard and you express them in yours. Well, I ramble. Anyway, I like this song very much!!

Dadai.2 said 2721 days ago (June 8th, 2010)
Too kind mr. jibes...

But it's nice to receive your words nonetheless. I know what you mean about something sounding familiar but not being able to zero in on a particular artist. I think you're right, our songs often catch a flavor of a certain era of tunes. Maybe on this song that is the case.

cheers,

That guitar stuff is Thor's contribution (along with his keyboards). And you are right... some of the best on MJ. Thanks.

MKVX said 2722 days ago (June 7th, 2010)
Wow
So mellow and awesome! You've somehow managed to create that deeply human sound, that sweet 70s vibe that doesn't try to sound pitch or meter perfect.

Love the guitar. Sounds great. However, I have some quams with the bass. It seems that the you have over-EQ'd the bass sound between the mid and low range. It comes out too strong and cuts into the acoustic guitar occasionally.

Musically, I think it would've been nice if the beat would have picked up a bit, but that is completely my opinion.

... for stopping in and giving me your thoughts on this song. The tweaks and dial adjustments are just my amateur attempts at a decent production. Great to know you like this one. Your comments are very appreciated...

Smooth....Full and clean sound with a nice stereo spread...Guitar,organ Vocals all performed very well. Compression a little heavy for my ears. Sad song that unfortunately I can relate to.

Enjoyed - Thanks for sharing,

Small things speaking loud

Lead guitar is late. Slide to left a bit. Your "dusty attic" voice is cool. I like the organ. Good panning. You write good lyrics, Jack. Don't stop. I hope to hook up with you again sometime in the near future, when I get back from wherever I've been.

I really got a boost that you stopped in, listened, and commented. Better still, that you liked this song. Break ups are indeed sad and hard... no winners. Thanks for chiming in... like I said, a high mark for thoddi and me.

That's how you guys make this all sound, when I know there's a lot of work going on behind this. A beautifully song and beautifully done by you both (and Jack that profile picture of yours is adorable!)

Thanks again and hope you two team up again for more excellent music! Michael

Well, thoddi is a band musician with many talents. When I sent him this track I knew he'd do some cool stuff. He did. And this track became a song. Made my day, I must say! Thanks Jack for your seal of approval.

Hi, Jack, thanks for re-doing this and for the heads up. I haven't been around that much lately... A bit busy days i RL... This is one of the finest songs I have heard from you, and I loved to work on it. It just flows - simple maybe, but it has loads of feel and soul.

Thanks:)

So sorry...
it's taken so long to reply to you. This collab is one of my most happy moments at MJ. A simple, plaintive song of love breaking up.... an even simpler chord and melody. You added the elements (guitar and organ) that gave this song a hearing. Thor, you're one of my faves out there somewhere. Thanks.
