The Unforgettable Night

I guess it's a universal experience that you have had an unforgettable night but when you wake up, you just can't remember what on earth happened crazy . This is a story about such a night. This song is my latest collaboration with Miira, we wrote the song together, I took care of the arrangement with BIAB and Miira sang her funky vocals.

BIAB has very good selection of funky realstyles, so I have combined several of them together and then added some other RTs for extra spice.

Loops:
Chillout_teardrops_79dminor
DirtySouth_layback_91

RealDrums:
NewOrleansMardiGras
RumbaPerc

RealTracks:
Acoustic Piano #2811
Electric Piano #2155
Electric Guitar #1637, #1638
Horns #2291, #2343
Organ #2619
Sax Tenor #1643
Synth Bass #2580

Vocals: Miira
Other voices: Janne

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017.

Lyrics:

The night was hot
that's why we got
more than enough to drink.
Swiping plastic
so orgastic
we just let it sink.
All was well
when we left the base
the same old story, hangover case.
The terrace closed
we crawled around
somehow the hotel was not found.

Found ourselves
in the rabbit hole
It surely freed my tortured soul.
I hurt my head
on the concrete bed
tender purring, no words were said
Fallen angels
a daring kiss
squeezed into the sinful bliss.
Knuckles with blood
your broken tooth
maybe my touch was not so smooth.

We can barely remember
what or where was our goal
still backtracking the path
to our rabbit hole.
white lies for those who might ask
the truth will stay behind the mask
I guess we will never know
but it must have been a hell of a rodeo.

The purse was lost
by the motorway
later an Arab saved the day.
Rolling down
in the grass
a story written on my a**.
Shambling streets
seven miles
two adults drunk like juveniles.
Bruises tell
the strangest tale
eye-witnessed by a nightingale.

[Chorus]

(Abducted by the UFOs
or delirium, god only knows)

[Chorus]

We are filling the blanks
where the mind wasn't bright
isn't it ironic
we call it the unforgettable night.

----------

Nice production. A lot of fun vocal effects going along with the lyrics.

This is a witty write and the vocals are good throughout. Enjoyed this.

Nice work, jannesan - as others mentioned, this one is quite "outside the box" if you will! Nice to hear some RealTracks getting use that you don't hear too often. Thanks for sharing!

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:
