The Summer Is Gone - 09/14/20 05:50 AM

Hi, friends !

Must say I´ve been away for too long really !
Have to tell you the reason: We were to have
a reparation of the plumming system in our
City House in Helsinki ! As we could not fly down
to Spain to Marianico, we started to search for
a summer cottage at a radius of 150-200 km:s from
Helsinki, and finally after having seen at least
20 different places we found our little cosy
cabin in Kiikala, Salo some 93 km:s from our city
home ! ...and naturally we´ve lived there up til now
mostly completely out of computers and other
electronic devices than our mobile phones !

So, my friends, AS I am only starting to finish new material
I thought I would post this older tune "Summer Is Gone"
that I did write for quite a time ago !

It deals with the summer ending up here in the north and
the crispy chilling fall coming in to replace it slowly
but surely !

My apologizes for not having saved the lyrics separately
but I think or at least I hope that you´ll be able to
detect the words from the tune !

No info about the instros or styles either since
they were on a computer that cracked up before saving !

Cheers
Dani

summer cabin named Tallero, which means peace amongst the Pine trees !

Another signature Dani, I have to admit that I always find your material intriguing and this is no exception.

Harmonies, and everything slotted together perfectly. Great backing, really enjoyable listen.

Nice, really.

Real nice melody. Liked the harmonies alot. Interest-holding movement of chords.
Enjoyed it.
Only constructive comment--I would have carried out the I-IV vamp to a fade at the end.
Thanks for posting!

Hey Dani, this tune really takes me back. Sounds like something I might have heard in the radio in the 70's. Beautiful harmonies and you've really captured a sunny, summery feel. I can just picture sun, clouds, hiking or picnicking on a grassy hillside.

Such a pleasant and mellow feel-good song. Your vocals are a stand out on this.

I enjoyed this very much!

Nice pic. I'm partial to the countryside.

Perfect song for the beginning of autumn. Very pleasing vocals.
Nice melancholy chording and melody. Enjoyable band and great radio-friendly mix.

Nice looking cottage smile Hope to hear your new material soon smile

Welcome back, Dani. Lovely gentle tune. Really enjoyed the harmonies. And nothing I like better than 'getting [myself] out in the crispy air.' The cabin looks to be in a beautiful spot.
Regards,
Leon

I've written it before but it is worth repeating: THIS IS YOUR REGISTER/key/octave.

Re: The Summer Is Gone - 09/16/20 11:44 PM

That was a pleasant listen!

Exactly what I needed after weeks of smoke and haze here - a short vacation to a cabin surrounded by greenery. smile

Dani,
Your silky smooth layered harmonies and ever positive pop songs have been missed.
You deliver again with this- and I like that idea of offgrid cabin life!

Hi Dani,

Indeed, you were away for a (too) long time. And watching at the picture you sent, I asked myself why do you want to go to Spain? A beautiful place I saw! That Covid-thing has given also some good spin offs. Now we can learn how our own country looks like on holidays (or whenever).

But about the song: How long ago did you made this song? It feels timeless. It's just there. No special intro or outro. That makes it also a nice song. Very well done.
And you promised new work as well. Got the ideas in that cottage?
I'm curious,

Hans

Hi Dani ...

Floyd pretty much summed it. i think it's the best of your vocals I've had the opportunity to hear. Definitely a mid-to-late 70s soundscape. Excellent song and presentation!

Loved the picture!

Best to you. Be safe ...

Hello Dany48,

Very vaporous atmosphere of very philosophical people and that's fine. The arrangement is excellent and the melody is sweet and the atmosphere is serene. Well done.

Best regard

Re: The Summer Is Gone - 09/29/20 02:50 PM

So nice to hear those harmonies again!

Great imagery in the write and it also allows the listener
to envision their own notions of summer.

A nice smooth relaxing song when we can all use that!

Re: The Summer Is Gone - 10/09/20 12:41 PM

Hi, Hans !

Still on to Spain I presume ? :-)
I do not recall exactly when I wrote this but
a wild guess would be around 2015 ?
In any case it was a very suitable
Biab Style I happened to stumble on
and usually that ends up in some
kind of tune later (not always, though) !

I am glad you liked it and wanna thank
you for your most kind comments !

Stay safe !

Cheers
Dani
