Noia (alternate take)

Get Flash to see this player.

This a 20 years old song I recorded in Italy on a Tascam 4 track cassette recorder.
I played/programmed the background instruments, Francesca sang, and Giorgio played the solo guitar.
We called this duo "De Nada, Thank You", in memory of a nice shot in the "Il nome della rosa" movie.
I transfered it from the stereo master tape (just a metal cassette) and I processed (very little) the sound in GarageBand.
I plan to record a new 21th century version of this song and I am also open to collaborations.

Lyrics were composed by Francesca. They are a bit obscure (for those who understand italian), I believe. Nevertheless, I love them since they evoke a lot of metaphors and allegories.

Nice swinging almost reggae jazz tune. My favorite part is
the bridge, where you rock into a different style. You
