Description
Haven't been up to singing lately due to colds and Flu etc. So I got to thinking I would look what i did when i first came here and I quite liked this song and the sentiment, which was my 4th song. Since I didn't have to sing and it's mainly spoken, I re did everything and started afresh with the lot. Originally I used the voice transformer to give my voice a very deeeeep timbre, but not having listened to it for a good while it didn't sound so good when I re-visited. That's why I re-performed it all, NOT a re-mix, it's all new.. The photo is my Grandson Fabian at bathtime and I can tell you, he's going to be a performer LOL. Must be a few Granddads who liked the original since there were 60 odd DL's, which surprised me, since there's only one 'fave' left on it out of the original few (I was new here). I only have to look at that photo above and I start to laugh.... hope you like this new version, M

Thank you
Kind Sir, glad you like my ( friendly?) voice LOL.... I have done a couple of spoken word pieces, though not for a good while, but if my singing voice continues to go down the pan, I might have to do all spoken word LOL, regards M

It may be spoken word, but there's still a lovely melodic quality to your vocal delivery. Very nice.

Nice to hear you
in this mode Maurice. I had a record when I was really young - "It's In The Book" - and this immediately reminded me of days at home listening to the "stereogram" with my mum and reciting the punchline every time it came around. An interesting mix of new sounds and old.
Glad you're feeling better.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Ha Ha! 'Stereogram'
You must have been 'posh' Neil, we only had a 'Radiogram' LOL. Good that this evoked some of those nice memories for you.... pure gold those kind of memories. Glad you like the sounds I used.... I particularly like that 'Orno Brass' sound in the second half background, which gives a kind of celebratory feel of playful exuberance. Thanks too for the thoughts, regards M

Very nice Maurice
Love it when you revisit some of these oldies and make them new again. Though not sung, your voice sounds great on this.

And when you do sing it's sounds like the Maurice I've come to know and respect.

Thanks for the post my friend, it's great to hear you again, as always.

Hi Ed
Thank you for those kind words my friend.... very pleased you liked what I re-did here.... on the original, I was too self conscious about my speaking voice and that's why I disguised it, but hey! When you get older you get a better sense of self I think... so this time I went for it. Hope you're feeling well now; all the best M

Great song
I love the spoken word quality of this and the singing at the end. The giggling child's laughter is a nice touch too. Is that Fabian himself? Such a relaxed feel to this and lyrics that clearly spell out a story with fondness. And the picture made me smile too! I'm in charge of my daughter's bathtime every night so I know the high jinx that can ensue! Really enjoyed this Maurice! I'm glad you took the time to revisit this.

Believe me Stephen
After spending a 14 day holiday with him in Sept. I'm so pleased I don't have to bath him... I spent a fortnight defending my Lancashire accent and chasing him LOL. Thank you for taking time out to listen to this and glad you like the lyrics and sentimentality, regards M

Thanks James
I've only just found enough strength in my voice to do this the way the flu affected me.... strange how it weakens the voice too. Glad you found the warmth and positivity in my performance and the song. Originally, this song was going to be a love song and then I thought about adding the giggle as an afterthought, so as to confirm it was aimed at a child.... glad it worked, regards M

Very very nice Maurice...
Lovely music. But it is your voice and the tale you tell that carries this tune.

As a grandpa myself several times over I find this deeply moving my friend. This really made my morning. I had just finished reading a biography of AE (George William Russell)---a hero of mine---and thought I'd check out MJ. Hadn't heard anything from you for awhile and have been a bit concerned. But here you are and with a wonderful gem to boot!

Thanks for capping off my morning in such a fine way! Glad to hear you're feeling better.

Take care!

In My Life
You have an amazing speaking voice. I could see you easily having a career in voiceovers. You probably got a lot of guest downloads, that would explain the few fans relative to downloads.

This is really great! Uplifting and joyful. Love it man!

Thank you Charles
for the kind words concerning my speaking voice..... though I guess it's a little late now for me to make a career out of it. Regarding the excess DL's to Fans; there were as many fans as comments originally, but they left and some came back under different names, though as you say, some will be anonymous visitors, which is fine anyway, Thanks again for calling in, regards M

Henke said 2595 days ago (October 14th, 2010)
I agree
with the above, your voice is made for this. And that contagious childrens laughter's really sweet (actually I've got some on my latest too). Good idea to remake an oldie. Yesterday I tried some new toy (demo of Channelstrip for Garageband) on my first upload here. That was fun, maybe I'll post. Anyway, much enjoyed, as usual.

Thanks,

Henke

Well Henke
My voice was in no shape for singing, so I thought I'd choose a re-make from a song that's more spoken..... very pleased you like the result and the laughter. I must check out this 'Channel-strip', though I don't know what it is. A few have mentioned it, regards M

AWESOME!
Mo, this is spectacular. I understand completely about not being able to sing....my hands have been swollen and not able to play. But I always figure the rainy days are to remind us to enjoy the sunny ones. This performance was sunshine all the way! Get well soon.

Nicely done. The spoken word narrative is really great.

Sorry to hear that you have been ill. I hope that you are feeling considerably better.

Good stuff. I'm not a grand dad yet but my daughters are getting close to being moms. Yikes!

I never tried
but I think doing quality spoken vocals should be as difficult as singing. I love the tone of your voice and intonations. Of course, a great song that glues all together. Wonderful listen Maurice.

Well Yves
I think whether singing or speaking lyrics we 'act out' the song, so it's a case of acting the words out vocally. Really pleased you called and enjoyed this and I thank you for your compliments regarding my voice, regards M

Warm
feelings here - Maurice,I don't know if you ever heard of a scottish man called Ivor Cutler - he's passed on now,but I saw him at Sussex university about 15 years ago.Heres a link to a bit of a programme about him,you might find it interesting :- Ivor Cutler but he did alot of spoken word and had a portable foot-organ he carted around with him to shows.I went on holiday to scotland in the summer and it was nice to listen to him in a tiny cottage in the evening.I should have taken your songs too.

Alot of warmth in this song,and smiles all round..thank you very much - Rich

for listening to this and leaving the kind words.
I haven't heard of Ivor, so I'll follow the link you gave and look forward to hearing him. I'll bet that was a really nice holiday in Scotland.... beautiful countryside and wonderful buildings and Architecture. Lovely to be out in the wilds in a stone cottage near the fire.... sounds wonderful and I'll bet you had better weather than those of us further South LOL, Cheers M
