Losing (D1&D2 Remix)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
... one of the first tracks Terry and I did here. A remix and the original is on Terry's page (davisamerica2).... This one is pretty special to me as it is one of three tracks Terrry and I worked on "face to face" after discovering MacJams. I pretty much had the song worked out except for the last verse and went to Oklahoma where we set up shop in Terry's living room to record it. Pretty much a live track I guess as we recorded keys,guitars and vocals ... over..and over again. Best I remember we blew Terry's voice out in the end. Artistic pain ehh? We rediscovered the magic we had enjoyed originally of just playing and working together. The amazing thing is this tune would be covered later by LavaLamp during a cover challenge. .. So please forgive a repost of a remix ....

Lyrics
So I picked up the phone, but I put it back down
Cos I know there ain't nobody there
Somebody said that they saw you in Memphis
You were happy, and had cut your hair
I don't know what's gonna happen now
But I don't want to hurt anymore
It always seemed so simple, but it's not so simple
anymore

How did it get so that I don't know where you are
Was I just some kind of fool
I always imagined the two of us together
But I guess I broke every rule
Baby I just want to tell you I'm sorry
But maybe that's not enough
And maybe you don't want to hear it, but baby
Where are you tonight?

Oh no, Losing in Miami seems the only thing left to gain
Oh no, Losing in Miami, where nobody knows my name

Will I ever be part of the world that you're living in
Do you have a place for me?
If you can't come here, then I'll gladly go there
Just tell me where you want me to be
I'm running along on a beach going nowhere
Everything stops at the sea
There's too many miles between Memphis and Miami
For you heart to ever find me

Oh no, Losing in Miami seems the only thing left to gain
Oh no, Losing in Miami where nobody knows my name

always kills me. It turns out to be a good antidote to the strong 'Cat Stevens' vibe in the acoustic guitar & vocal delivery. This is a very cool song, fellas. I'll take a copy cause I think there's more here than I can pick up from a couple of listens late at night on my laptop speakers...
Thanks!

Love the warm baritone vocals and clarity of the electric piano. Great memories. Strong tune, really nice flow, ups and downs, forward moment. I am glad you reposted. Isn't great to go back in time and discover you are smarter now and want to do it better this time? Success...

Quality song. Flows so well. Great to hear davisamercia squared working together. Reminded me a bit of early Jimmy Buffett in style. Good one. Thanks.

Great tune...
...and a solid performance. Love your voice on this. The general mix is a little "rumbly" but I think it must be my speakers or something since no one else mentioned this. (Is that an organ lurking in the background? Well, whatever it is, I like it and it adds to your arrangement nicely.) I really enjoyed hearing this very nice song.

No apologies for a remix!!
This is a great tune. Honest and highly listenable. Lyrics and melody work well together and the overall feel of the orchestration calls on so many of my favourite artists that it's like I've known this song as a favourite all of my life.

Cool repost and thanks for brightening my afternoon Jack!

coolness
a friend of mine, who owns a recording studio, give tips on recording an acoustic; he said to use a condenser mic in the room, and a ribbon mic near the sound hole. i have yet to try this, but i thought of it when i heard your tracks.
my only constructive advice is to apply compression on your acoustic tracks to push them up to the front of the mix. they add a great deal of the melody, and seem to my ears to be a little in the back. hope this doesn't come across as critical of your skills, i love the song! thank you for sharing your talents!!
