Description
If All the World Were MacJams
Written by Philip Gardner
Produced by Andrew Lack

The Song
The background to the song was, first, the reports of the rioting in England with attacks on people and properties and communities. This was not so long after the Global Financial Crisis from which the rich seemed to escape, while the poor couldn’t keep up the payments on their houses. On another level entirely, I had uploaded a song onto MacJams and was, as usual, delighted with the positive comments, where there’s a focus on acknowledgement and improvement. So what would the world be like if it were run by the MacJams community, and the politicians provided the entertainment?

Also around that time I watched an Elvis Costello show where he interviewed several musicians then they all played, with each taking a solo during the song. Given the collaborative nature of MacJams, that seemed like a good idea for a structure!

The musicians
Being a MacJams member seeking a musician for a collaboration is like being a kid in a candy shop – too many choices! So I approached people I’d heard and admired on various songs. I had already worked with Scotty Johnson, so he was an obvious choice for the bass. Andrew Lack’s crisp acoustic guitar tones I knew would be perfect for the first solo. John Libby’s keyboard skills are a great addition to all the songs he’s worked on, as are the drums provided by Mike Watkins. For a harmonica solo and searing guitar, who better than Stan Gadziola? And he could add further variety with some stunning ukulele playing!

To get that “your turn now” feel I thought the song needed someone to add a vocal part, preferably a female voice. Alannah was suggested (the person who did so said “I’d listen to her sing the phonebook”). What a voice she has – powerful and able to express such a wide emotional range, with just a touch of velvet-encased rough edge. Perfect!

To my great delight, they all agreed to be part of the project.

The production
With all this going on, I was starting to worry a bit about whether I had the production and mixing skills to put it all together. Fortunately, Andrew offered to help. The quickest decision I’ve ever made was then to ask him to take over the project. He did. He’s brilliant.

Acknowledgements (in alphabetical MacJam name order)
Alackbass – production, mixing, acoustic guitar solo
Alannah – vocals
Gadzooks – electric guitar, harmonica, ukulele
Kevmikwa – drums
KTB – keyboard (organ)
Philip18 – rhythm guitar, vocals
SCJohnson59 – bass

My thanks to all these fine musicians. When their various parts came in, I just couldn’t keep the smile off my face. Special thanks to Andrew – I originally asked him to play a 4 bar acoustic guitar solo and he ended up putting in many hours of work pulling everything together.

Finally, thank you to the MacJams community. There is nothing more motivating than constructive and positive criticism from others who are doing what you do. I look forward to the time when you’re running the world!

Lyrics
If All The World Were MacJams

There’s riots in the cities and there’s riots in the towns
There’s rich men taking houses from those who’ve been pushed down
It seems there’s nowhere you can go, to find a little peace,
The troubles will keep following, can’t get no release

But if all the world were MacJams, it would be a better place
It could be a model for all the human race
Where if you had nothing good to say, you’d say nothing at all
And you would let your fellow man stand up and then walk tall

On MacJams tonight, On MacJams tonight,
Join with the community on MacJams tonight.

No matter where you come from or where you’re going to
You understand the music that connects the world to you
You have respect for everyone, cause each can play a part
And the devil’s in your fingers and not deep in your heart

And if you joined the army you would carry by your side
A Fender or a Gibson and you’d plug it in to fight
You’d be joined by those so different, they play saxophone or drums,
But when they work together let you be who you can become

On MacJams tonight, On MacJams tonight,
Join with the community on MacJams tonight.

When all your wars are over, you will be in MacJams heaven,
You’ll have AKG condensers, instead of AK 47s
You’ll hear the pound of V-drums, and not of Sherman tanks
And when you call for the marines, a Marine Band has top rank

So if you want to rest awhile and find a little light
Put up your feet, load up a song, on MacJams tonight.
A song about a lover, a song about a wife,
A song about a friendship and a song about a life

On MacJams tonight, On MacJams tonight,
Join with the community on MacJams tonight. (x 2)

This type of collaboration shows what MJ is all about, at its best, and you have defined the aspirations of the site wonderfully well in this song, Philip. The fact that all the players so readily agreed to be involved is testament to this. Everyone involved made a telling contribution and Andrew did a great job pulling it all together. Congratulations, all. Regards, Peter.

If All the World Were MJ
Philip,
Thanks so much for inviting me to participate in this wonderful project. I have to be honest. When I first heard it, I wasn't sure if I really had it in me to participate. At the time I was feeling all too often MJ is actually too much like all the world.

But the more we worked on this the more you took me back to my initial feelings about the place. That sense of validation when others say kind and supportive things about one's music. The thrill of collaborating with talented people from all over the globe.

You have put together here a truly global collaboration. Two Canadians, four Americans (all living in different parts of the east coast) and yourself from Australia. You captured the true spirit of MJ in song and in process.

This song brings the list of MJ members I've collaborated with to 30. Being on the receiving end of kind comments and fans always feels good. But what I alway consider my most important accomplishment here is the relationships I've developed with the 30 MJ members who invited me to participate on their songs or agreed to help me on mine.

Thanks again for inviting me to work with you. Thanks for the opportunity to work with three friends with who I have collaborated frequently (Mike, John, and Stan). Thank you for giving me the opportunity to finally work with Alannah and Scott. And most off all thanks for reminding me why I come here everyday.

Look out, Andrew - I have more ideas! Thank you again for what you've done with this - as I've said several times, I just couldn't keep the smile off my face as your latest mix arrived. You managed to take quite disparate elements and make them into a united sound. Extraordinary. Ultimately, it's the music that matters and your production work has showcased the best in all of us.

I certainly was pleased with the way it went, Neil. The contribution form each of those involved just kept making it better - and no doubt Alannah's contribution improved the vocals considerably!

michaeljayklein said 2114 days ago (September 13th, 2011)
Great message and music
This is very fine production! My only criticism would be the third line in the second stanza--I know what the lyricist intended, but the line somehow comes off a bit like only "fluff" comments are allowed (perhaps I'm influenced more by how you ended your intro above--this is a minor deal of course). Also, I believe the vocals could have been evened out more between Philip and Alannah--you both did a great job, but it seems a little awkward that Alannah only comes in for a turn once in the second chorus (of course you both come in together for the finish). Perhaps you both alternating back and forth and singing the chorus together from the start would give that aspect of the track some balance. But all in all, well done and thanks everybody for your good work!

Thanks
I appreciate the comments, Michael. Re the "If you've got nothing good to say" I wasn't thinking that only Polyanna playing her "Glad Game" was welcome here, but that comments ought to be constructive -although I recognise that this is not always a clear concept in criticism (one person's "constructive" may be another person's "nit-picking"). In my experience of giving "cool feedback", if it is just negative and destructive, you get one of two responses: fight or flight. So the person subjected to that either bites back along the "What would you know?" spectrum, or goes away and never puts themselves "out there" again. Both undesirable outcomes. Not easy to get all that into a line of a song!

I understand your point of view about Alannah, too, although why it was done that way was to get that "people dropping in" feel as had happened with the various solos by different musicians. Although the listener here is expecting Alannah at some stage because she's in the title, I was aiming for an element of surprise and strong impact when she did come in. As another way of approaching the project, I considered at one stage asking another two vocalists to sing a verse each, but as it was already a large project (7 people in it) I dropped the idea thinking it could all become a big mess.

Thanks for listening and for the detailed feedback!

I feel very honored having been asked to play on this collab. I have also been part of MJ's for a very short time and am overwhelmed by the support and musical opportunities I have been part of. When I first heard this tune I thought it would be fun to play on and I liked the positive lyrics. It was great hearing everyones parts all put together in a magical way by the mix master Andrew. Thanks for asking me to be part of an excellent song Philip!! It was a an enjoyable play.

Delighted you accepted, Stan. Your talent in so many areas shines through the song. Perhaps I can reveal too that you did a number of version of the solos for this, and Andrew had to choose which to use. I'm glad it was him who did it - I doubt if I could have made that decision! And I still smile when I listen to your lead breaks!

Jumping in point
I'm way past overdue commenting on your work - especially as you have left several posts on my songs. You just keep putting up quality pieces, both musically and lyrically, which means I keep slipping further behind. So I'm jumping in here - because I meant to comment on this song months ago.

This is a wonderful piece for several reasons. First, it represents the best spirit of the Macjams collaborative fellowship: bringing folks from around the world together to harmonize over music. How great is that? Using that as a celebratory theme is not only fitting, but it fits into a tradition here on the site, where others have extolled the virtues of the Macjams experience. This one is as good as any of those past efforts.

One could quibble that the lyrics conveniently overlook the rancor that sometimes breaks out in the forums - that Macjams has it's share of rage and discord (usually, I should note, over politics or religion or social issues, rather than the music) just like the Real World itself, but this song is not meant to be factual: it's mythical. And it builds convincing case for the myth of the healing power of musical togetherness.

Nicely done are the humorous elements - the twists on the AKG and the Marine Band harmonica. You shift from serious to humorous with ease. That's good writing.

Somebody wrote - and I agree - Alannah's verse comes in like an afterthought; she should jump in by the second verse to make it feel cohesive. That can be rectified when you guys appear live on an international stage : )

You have a special gift for being both mellow and energetic at the same time .. or at least touching both moods in the same song. I think this is rare. Perhaps it reflects a certain found wisdom coming through age and experience, but that's just a guess on my part. It makes the sound and expression of your music attractive .. and unique.

Philip18 said 1935 days ago (March 10th, 2012)
Jumping in
Sorry I've been a bit slow to respond - I don't always check the previous songs! I appreciate the thoughtful comments. A few in response:
• I do think it's a wonderful site - it got me back into making tight music rather than just fiddling around, and has put me in touch with a lot of fine musicians who've helped in various ways (musical and technical)
• when I wrote this, I hadn't spent much time in forums and so hadn't seen much of what can happen in them, although even now I tend to find most are either positive, helpful or just sharing good things. You're right about the myth, of course - I guess you always have to beware of any statement that says "the world would be a better place if everyone were like me/us".
• still waiting for offers on the international stage, but I'll take your advice on Alannah when that happens! :-)
• good guess re the age and experience...

So thanks again for listening and for the comments- much appreciated!
