Fall With Abandon (Tom's Mix)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is the result of an open collaboration at iCompositions.com. Doctor Zinc posted the songbed and I improvised a melody and lyrics to it in a single take. Then I added sampled nature sounds in a rythmic way using my midi keyboard. Alanatomic (aka Tom Chianti) did the mix on this version. The result is one which I absolutely adore. Hope you like it, too. :)

Lyrics
Fall With Abandon

Huh! Ah!
Huh! Ah!

I was awake last night
Bathed in a silver light
The moon was full, I felt its pull
And it’s respelendance

I spent an hour or two
Wallowing in the view
Loving the moon in its transcendance
Sometimes to be alive
Brings moments just like this

But only moments, only moments,
Only moments
Can hold the bliss
Only moments in time
Blissfully lost un these holy times
When your senses climb
To such dizzy heights

Oh those nights are the nights that I live for
Those nights are the ones I live for

We are allowed to see
Past all reality
into the cosmos

We are allowed to know
things which don’t show
Any other way

Oh, today is a moment in the time
I am here
Oh… oh… oh… oh…
We all have these moments
Whether we notice them or not
All I hope for you
Is that you’ll notice them more
Than you do now
No matter how much you do now

My fellow travelers
We have this chance
Let’s take it, let’s take it, let’s take it…
Make this life your own
Don’t bitch and moan
Don’t cry too often
But when you cry
Cry with your whole heart
Don’t hold back

And when you love, oh, when you love
Love with your whole heart
Don’t hold back
And when you love don’t leave yourself out
You need it as much as you need to give it

Love yourself!

When you float back down to earth
When you come back
to standing on your
Own two feet
Celebrate your wings though they can’t be things
You use every day

Ah! Aaaah! Oh!

Ride this wave, and the next
Ride these waves, do your best
Keep your footing as long as you can
But once you fall,
Fall with abandon

Oooh, oooooh, oooooooooh!

Ohhhhhhhhhh…

Carla
I don't think there is a song written or going to be written that you couldn't add an amazing element too with your instant vocals and melodies. Very nicely done!

Love the echo effect on the drums
soo cool. I remember the acapella version of this song. sounds so different with this audiobed under it. Sounds awesome. No critique I can think of on this one. Great vox of course. Great job as usual!!

nice mix
enjoying all the wonderful sounds here, you have a nice warm tone to your voice,, I do think where the guitar is introduced @ 5 minutes it should be alone .. & not competing with the voice, keep on keepin on,,T

Thanks Terraplane...
You are not alone on that comment on when the guitar comes in - one other person mentioned that as well. I may play with the mix a tiny bit, or re-sing the line, so that it
blends better but I really have to keep them together from my point of view. What I think these comments I've gotten mean is that it's not working as well as it should yet. I appreciate the constructive criticism as well as praise. Thanks. :)
