Hi, friends !:)))

I finally got this old
tune of mine converted
to BIAB, it was on my
record from 1992. It is
in fact a tribute to all
wives in general and my
own Beni in particular !
So sad she had to go
too early:

The links:
Soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/dani-lindroos/my-wife
Box: http://app.box.com/s/9nxqd1wh2htizvb8erw5

Recorded and mixed with Mixcraft 6 on my laptop
Zoom H4n used as mic.

...and here are the lyrics:

MY WIFE (by Dani) © Dani Lindroos 1992

Whom do you turn to then
whom do you turn to then
when you need a friend
who can ease your sorrow and strain
who will care for you
and see you thru
the moments when you´re blue

Whom do you turn to then
whom do you turn to then
when you need a friend
to relieve you of grief and pain
who will listen to
your thoughts so blue
and give her love to you
to you

Who can be so true
all these things to do
no one but my dearest wife
Oh, I love her so
hope we´ll always go
together thru this life

Whom do you turn to then
whom do you turn to then
when you need a friend
who will ease your dark despair
who will hold your hand
and always stand
beside you , come what may
It´s my wife

WOW

What a fantastic tribute to your wife and to all wives. If I could see into heaven I'd bet there are four thumbs up, two from your wife and two from God!

You vocals and harmonies were perfect for this song. Your chord progression, backing tracks and mix were perfect.

If my wife had passed I'm not sure I could sing a song like this without breaking up. This was a very heart felt song and you did one fantastic job on it.

Dani, I joined this forum thinking I would be learning tips and techniques about a software program but from you and your heartfelt songs, I'm learning about what real love truly is. You are the epitome of loyalty, compassion and expression.

Great song, well written and mixed beautifully. The vocals and harmonies are the icing on the cake.

Hi Dani,

It's two very confident thumbs up from me. I'm always captivated by the AABA song format and you worked it very well. Those three repeating lines at the beginning of each A section were an excellent refrain.

I'm sure Beni is listening and smiling.

Best wishes,
Noel

Beautiful Song Dani and great tribute to your wife. I always admire people who can sing about their loved ones and put to music how they feel. I suppose it helps in the healing process as well.

I love those harmonies too.

Well done,
Musiclover

Hi, Mario !

You make me blush !
I am not sure I deserve
such nice words !
You know, Mario, that
my wife did get to hear
the version on the record.
I admit having had difficulties
earlier singing this song, but it
is three years since she died
and today I can do it ! Only
time can heal, how true is´nt that ?

Cheers
Dani
