Description
This is a re-recording in a completely different Genre, of a Ballad I did this time last year. It was just asking to be done as a Bossa Nova; though I think this is more of a Rhumba beat. Anybody remember the Rhumba? Hmmm! Just me then LOL...... ok pass me my shorts and flowered shirt while I just loosen my hips and I'll show you how it's done... you don't need shoes. Hope you like this new version,in which I still kept guitar and electric piano; only loops were drums and pencil tooled bass. I pushed it a bit key-wise as it's one full key up from the other version, but I think my voice box got away with the strain.
This is the original if you want to compare. http://www.macjams.com/song/60158

Lyrics
You And You Alone

Moonbeams lighting up the room, where in my bed I laze,
Brighten all my sleepless nights, enhancing where I gaze,
The pictures at my bedside in the blue-ish moonlit haze,
Remind me of the times that we once shared.

Dancing on the ceiling, the reflections move and sway,
Rolling back so many thoughts and memories I have saved,
Of times we also danced and swayed, beneath a silvery light,
The scent of jasmine flowers filled the night.

Chorus/bridge
Now you’re gone, yes you’re gone,
Will we ever meet again?
All I know is though you are gone,
In my heart you will remain.

Now sleepless though my nights may be and memory filled, it’s true,
Every thought of you I have will always see me through,
From Moonlight into daylight and through every day I live,
It’s to you and you alone, my love I give.

Repeat Chorus/bridge

Now sleepless though my nights may be and memory filled, it’s true,
Every thought of you I have will always see me through,
From Moonlight into daylight and through every day I live,
It’s to you and you alone, my love I give…..
It’s to you and you alone, my love I give.

Maurice Vizard.

Oh cha cha cha!
M! I do believe that you are the next Latin star. You're going to need great big bouncers just to keep those spanish girls from swarming you after the show.

Very well done.

Very cool groove.

History
Well Iraq was a British Colony and had a lot of Cultural club that reflect the western way of life ... many Bands from all over the world were playing there during the 70s ..40s ..too many generations absorbed the western music and more but thats not the story after that ..things change for my generation ...thanks again for the nice song !

I
love the up-tempo Rhumba groove here Maurice compared to the original, gives the song a completley new lift and it sounds great.
I also love hearing different renditions of your older posts and reading your replies to comments, you have a great sense of witty humour and it makes me smile!
Always enjoy your vocals and very much enjoyed.

I'me very pleased you listened to both versions (thank you for your time). I think the first comes across as more emotional and pensive, but.... this one has that more lively feel that just asks for a pair of dance shoes. Again, thank you for calling in to listen, regards M

New Bossa
The higher pitch works great. A crooner like tone cannot express sincere pain (look how cool I sing while crying), so it was the right choice. Perfect singing, as always.

Nice Maurice. I'll have to go listen to the original. This is slinky smooth. Well done on the pecil tool. I can't deal with that thing worth a damn, no patience. Yeah, you are reaching a little key-wise, but thats cool, you nailed it. Your voice actually has a kind of a sultry Billie Holiday tone to it. Thanks,
RR

sometimes the tension comes across as emotion. I remember watching a TV documentary about show singers years ago and the teacher/ coach always took the singers as high as they could possibly sing, for that very reason. Thanks for giving a second listen, regards M
