v2-BABY, BABY (dadai, rschletty, magullo)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
A remix of our smooth jazz song... a simpler version -- we just made it creamier. This take has a new percussion track, as well as an overall stripped down mix that hopefully comes across as more intimate and smooooth.

Thanks to Neil Porter, RT Cooper and others for their suggestions. Please give us your honest crit -- we can take it standing up. We want to make this song the best it can be.

Lyrics
Baby, Baby

[refrain]
Baby, baby, you know that I love you
Baby, baby, you know that I want you

You're the sparkle in my daily grind
You're the one who helps me lose my mind
Some gotta lotta daughters, lotta sons
Let me be the father of your little ones

Let's take a walk along a country road
Let's climb a mountain with a lighter load
I wanna hold your hand and be your slave
Our love'll ripple like a tidal wave

[refrain]

Some gotta lotta dollars but little sense
We'll help each other climb that chain link fence
Our richest moments spent won't cost that much
Our greatest treasure in a simple touch

We're talking recipes for happiness
A little song and dance and a goodnight kiss
So time to do-da-do-wap-da-do-da-do-da-do
If you treat her right at na-na-na-na-night

[break with vocal scatting]

[refrain]

'wacky'
wet sound on the guitar (rhythm) is cool - a retro feel. Nice love song. Amp noise sound needs to go away at least at the end.....

Harold baby (heheh)...
Nice to have you drop in. The wet guitar is David's... all the soling and the ending stuff, nice. I think this version came out as a better one than the original. Not sure as to the "amp" sound (here at work on tiny speakers). Rich might be able to comment. Thanks again.

Amp sound? I suppose if I had SoundSoap Pro I could get rid of it. My mixes tend to accumulate a lot of white noise and I really don't know what to do about that other than build a $100,000 sound studio with lots of foam sound proofing and complimentary airline tickets for Jack and David. In the meantime, try to focus on the good sounds we squeak out. LOL. Thanks for your discerning ear, Harold.

Well,
I do like this one better but I find the vox and sax kind of are at the same range and beat a little. I think the level of the sax needs to come down some during baby baby.

I'm listening in cans and it comes through pretty obvious but it just could be my bad ears!

This is still a really sweet tune!

smoother yet
Thanks, Mark. Be sure to check out version 3 (soon to post). We softened the lead instruments and blended everything real nice. We also heavily modified the lyrics.

This sounds gorgous I love it. Wow!

Peace Dee.
snowdragon said 3681 days ago (August 20th, 2008)
decent tune fer sure
couple of suggestions.
1. "chain link fence"??? tmi, just fence
2. overall mix
The instrumentation is very good but not blended enough for a jazzy piece I think. If I might suggest the "jazz club" preset in GB4 (unless of course that's the one you're using, in which case, nm :)

just gut reactions.

Chain link fence is rich with meaning
Everyone has a problem with chain link fence except me. Bless my soul, why can't you all understand? The fence is a metaphor for containment. Climbing the fence represents overcoming limitations of income or self-doubt. Chain link fence is especially poignant in my case since I have one surrounding my yard. And a common appellation for West Side youth is "fence jumper" (which suggests fleeing from the cops). Chain link fence is rich with meaning but no one likes it. When I get rich and famous I will sing anything I damn please and never back down.

Here are version 3 lyrics (soon to be posted), rewritten with input from Jack Miller and Brad Dunse. No more chain link fence...

Baby, Baby (version 12)

[refrain]
Baby, baby, you know that I love you
Baby, baby, you know that I want you

You're the sparkle in my sip of wine
sending tingles up and down my spine
You're the one I'd always hoped to find
shining brightly through my daily grind

Let's take a walk along a country road
Climb a mountain with a lighter load
Come, hold my hand and be my waking dream
Our love'll ripple like a pebbled stream

[refrain]

The richest moments spent don't cost that much
The greatest treasure's in a simple touch
Though short on dollars, we make good sense
The grass is plenty green on the inside of our fence

We're talking about recipes for our romance
A simple, quiet dinner and a real slow dance
So time to do the do, time to make the move that's right
as I hold you in my heart all day and night

[break with vocal scatting]

[refrain]

First Life
Er, make that "fence jumper" -- Character mapping is still broken between so many apps and platforms. I long for the old days of hot and cold type when a character always printed out on a type galley as expected. Those were the good old days.

BTW, I am so happy to see you check in at MacJams, Craig. Thanks for your comment. It seems like a couple years since you last graced us with your wit and musicality at MacJams (your First Life).

lol,

sorry to rain on your metaphor Schletts :)

but I did like the new version Jack sent me.

Haven't written a song in ages. First life, second life, haven't really been doing much musically except cover tunes in GB and a few gigs here and there. More or less lost interest in SL.

Class act
You guys are so good its really hard to find anything, so everything I have is subtle and probably subjective. I would like to hear the scat singing a little louder. The bass is too smooth (soft) for me. And the bass drum fills seem too heavy. Cool song!

Thanks

Scatting thoughts
Bill: Excellent observations. We're working on version 3. Lots of checks and balances. Learning a lot in the process.

Those Maj7 chords....
somehow remind me of America, I mean the group. Ventura Highway.

This has a nice smooth groove. That's Richard on the vocals? He has a great voice. Rich, smooth, expressive, spot on tuning.

Nice job on the arrangement in general.
