Description
Graham Henderson was a very prolific writer at SongRamp. One would have a conversation with him, and the next minute you'd find your conversation in his song. He's departed this realm - and I miss him so much, but still have his songs.
The piano is a pre-fab loop in the Logic Express Loops Browser - I sliced and diced it for my whimsical purposes.

Lyrics
SEPARATE PILLOWS
Copyright © Graham Henderson 2007 APRA

Separate pillows neither sharing space
Each with a wall and hurdles to face
Pride is riding herd on each tongue
There's nowhere to hide
When the last word has been flung

Armed with hostility
Cuttin' like a knife
Silence has stolen reason and right
There will be no goodnight tonight
Now separate pillows have been brought to the fight

Brooding and sleepless
Separate they lay
This is no way to end a day

Sorry could mend it but that’s hard to say
When pride has decided what games it will play
The seeds have been planted
Now watch the weeds grow
Til separate pillows may be all we know

oooooooo

a very reflective work. This has a nice lilt to it. Love the changes. Lyrics remind me that honesty without compassion is disguised hostility. There is no charge for that one. Least I could do to trade that for such a wonderful song. 3 part harmony in there?

So sad, so true, and so beautiful
I've always been in awe of your singing Anne but to hear you created this piano backing by slicing and dicing loops is really impressive (not to belittle the vocals ;-)

SISTERS said 2617 days ago (July 26th, 2010)
go right ahead
and belittle the voice - i was PROUD of my slicing n dicing.
tho i probably misled you - music was pretty much all there in its own - i just edited it.
so nice of you to drop by - thank you, richard.

This was a good one to hold onto Anne. These are very nice lyrics and your voice brought out the passion in them. Love your harmonies. Great piano! I couldn't slice and dice chop sticks. Terry

On this one....
I'm actually kind of awed that you could slice and dice the piano into such a natural sounding backing...

I think your phrasing and pitch on this is just perfect, Anne.... You get that 'sweet blues' thing going just right....

Sorry to hear about the tomato worms... That photo was pretty scary... Though you did seem to be channeling Xena there....

One of your best
Sweet. Love the intimacy, straight forward collab between you and the splicer and Mr. Henderson. Wonderful work.

Graham captures separation without becoming a victim, becoming mean, or falling into nostalgia. Well done.

Sounds like it could be a standard. Nice changes, and the melody rides on top like it's always been there. Beautiful vocs! Very nice lyric, the man could turn a phrase.

So pure
Gosh I love the sparseness of this song. Very intimate, very 'on the skin', the bluesy chords, the proximity of the vocals, the perfect control on each note sung. Sweetness.

Very nuanced and emotive vocal performance. Spot on in pretty much every way. Kind of a Sarah McLaughlin vibe on this with a little jazz and gospel infusion in style. Nice work here. Really enjoyed it!

what lovely vocals
This song, and performance, are just gorgeous. I could do without the stereo delay/echo on the vocals --I think it's a little distracting from your excellent delivery. So effective nonetheless!

I like it - I like it - I like it
The first part brought some memories of listening to Janis Ian to mind... or was it Carole King...? Anyway, this is sooo good, and could easily have been a track on either of their earlier albums… And if it was, it would have been a hit. So... what are you waiting for :)

Very nice this one. And I will 'cause of this, make a brand new playlist in itunes with macjams greatest 2010. This will be the first one to enter that list.

And that ooooooooo part at 02:10 is hot:)

Fine
Spare and clean is the toughest way to go: no room to hide! Very strong performance with an easy gait, and a nice warm sound. That slicing/dicing worked out pretty well, too. Beautiful job!

Missed ya sisas!
How warm and beautiful. Your vocals are better than ever -- you're one collective voice, so intertwined. The piano sounds so great here I'm amazed you got it by "slicing and dicing" as you describe. Lovely -- which is strange, considering the too-familiar story these poignant lyrics tell. And: Thank you for the download.
