Oh my where will we go - original version

Oh my where will we go - original version - 10/14/17 02:14 PM



Some of you may still remember a Dutch song contest we participated in, one or two years back.
Those may also remember that we did not win frown well.....

Anyway, that was not the original version. Anne-Marie adjusted the lyrics for the contest's theme.

This however, is the original version, with the original video. Shot at Anne-Marie's place.
(Which is now my place too ;-))

Hope you'll like it, as always any comments are welcome.

This song is featured on our album The Road

Lyrics

thoughts keep entering my mind
as I watch the hours go
and I feel the days flow
doubt has taken over me
and I can't begin to tell you how I feel

after all these years
of firmly believing in it all
my look has changed
new love's embraced

when you left your home back then
being only 17 it was the greatest thing you'd ever need
flying on the wings of love
and now you can recall the way you used to be

and every time I'm here
an uncertain future getting near
though your love's still strong
you won't be here for long

Oh my where will we go

CHORUS

Oh my where will we go from here

Wow, what a stunning piece. It has a haunting, ethereal quality to it. I loved the slow build in the later half of the song too!

Not a thing I'd change here - thank for sharing smile

This is perfect! I really loved the instrumentation you used. Plus the video was icing on a cake that was already iced! Loved it!

This is a keeper.

Rob, there must have been some VERY GOOD material in that contest for this song to not win!! This song is beautiful and your vocal is perfect (never off-pitch always spot on). You two (in my opinion) put up the best all around audio/video production we have on the forum. Great work! Thanks, Torrey

I am continually amazed at your work. I am humbled at times to realize how limited my musical education has been. You are going places I cannot yet imagine. I learned what little I do know playing in some unmentionable clubs and blind pigs throughout the south. At 71 I have a long way to go and a short time to get there. Wonderful job!

Rob you have such clarity to your voice.
I really enjoyed this.
Thanks to both of you.

Rob and Anne-Marie,

A wonderful, bittersweet and evocative piece. The lyric is so good and,Rob, your voice is always so pure. I was so taken in with the video I had to watch it twice - will go back for more listens, I am sure. Thi8s was a real treat. The two of you are accomplished entertainers. I think I speak for most folks on the forum when I say we appreciate the great music you share with us. It was mesmerizing!

Hi, Rob and Anne-Marie !


It´s been said but I have
to say it too - this is
a very beautiful song and
so delicately performed too.
It has all the elements of
a hit tune - could go into
a movie or a musical too !!!

Cheers

Rob & Anne-Marie,

Delicate, romantic and beautiful- for me one of your best ballads.
Your vocal is flawless, Rob.
This does have the feel of a movie song ... and the video is stylish and evocative.
Well done!

Thank you Torrey, well I don't think it was all that much about very good material, but had more to do with the age of the contestants (guess they were focusing on a 'young ' audience).
Well, nevermind, it's been a while ;-)
Thank you for the awesome complement!

Rob and Anne-Marie,

I am always so impressed with your work! This is certainly no exception. Like Torrey said, there must have been some incredible song that was submitted by someone else if you didn't win that competition. This is so professionally done, and your vocals sound as good as ever. All on top of a very well written song.

As always, great work! Looking forward to what you submit next!

A very good composition and I really enjoyed listening to the chord progression of your piece. In another area of the forum, users posed the question "Is Good Music Dying Away?". Perhaps the answer can be found in this same "User Showcase" section of the forum...

there's a lot music here which is pleasing to my ear.

Every part of this song has so much polish, and the vision adds an extra layer of professionalism.

I really enjoyed this. No surprise there though wink

This song reminds me of a 70's era love song and I love it!

I am amazed and thrilled about how these songs are being produced with the use of Biab. Such talented forum members we have with such amazing music. Thanks for sharing it with us, loved this.

"Very beautiful! Cool video too. Renaissance man!!!" As David said...yeah!

The piano, flute/oboe and vocals are all so special in this fine arrangement. The words have already been mentioned but "classy" and "sophisticated" well fit.

The entire audio and video productions are engaging and remarkably well done.

Kudos!

Beautiful one RnAM.
There is a delicacy/honesty/sophistication/clarity about your work
that is hard to define but most delightful. Cheers.

I really love the renaissance feel to this song and video! It's absolutely stunning, and you guys did a fantastic job!

I especially love these lyrics:

"and every time I'm here
an uncertain future getting near
though your love's still strong
you won't be here for long"

Great job! <3 Even if it's an older one, it's still top quality!

Rob and Anne-Marie,

I totally agree with floyd (and all the others, too, by the way). This is stunning music.... very moody, very haunting and a thoroughly enjoyable journey of first class music and first class Youtube presentation. The singing, the music, the arrangement, the video all work hand-in-hand to create a really fine piece of aural and visual art.

You are both incredibly talented in so many ways!

Regards,
Noel
