MISSING YOU

Howdy all, here's our first J&B new song post in over a month...but we sure have been having fun with collabs!

Recently Lawrence (Gruverider) kindly let us interpret one of his songs. The version he sent us was so pretty that it was a bit intimidating to tackle an arrangement but we decided to give it our best effort. After putting together and auditioning five completely different BiaB bands this is where we landed. We trust we did it justice.

This is my first effort at a “lyric video” and there are definitely some things I’ll do differently the next time. I shot several photos of Janice for the recent collab with Joanne and this was a rare one where Janice wasn’t smiling. smile It fit the mood for this song but all my others of her, even older ones, have her signature big smile. So I had to go with one photo. What the heck.

We most welcome you watching/listening and commenting. There is an audio only link at the bottom of the page.

Vocal: Janice/Rodes NT1/Blue Icicle USB/Logic Pro X
Bass: 712 Acoustic Bossa Simple Version (with some note tweaking)
RD: N'ville 8th (sticks)
Guitar R 1: 2051 Acoustic Fingerpicking
Guitar R 2: RT 365 Acoustic Fingerpicking
Fiddle R: RT 1760 Background Pop
Fiddle L: RT 2028 Solo Country
Accordion: RT 1757 Rhythm Pop
All effects and mastering: Ozone 6 and Nectar 2
Video: iMovie

MISSING YOU
© 2015 LAWRENCE OLIVIER

I’VE GOT A HEADACHE POUNDING LIKE PROBLEMS UNRESOLVED
MY EYES ARE BLEARY MY MOUTH IS DRY AS SALT
AND SCENES FROM LAST NIGHT ARE STARTING TO COME THROUGH
AND I’M ALREADY MISSING YOU

I DRANK TO HAPPINESS THEN I DRANK TO EXCESS
SWEAR I’M SORRY LOVE FOR GETTING US IN THIS MESS
FOOLISHNESS AND SELFISHNESS GOT NO PLACE IN LOVE’S BREW
AND I’M ALREADY MISSING YOU

TURNAROUND

SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY WHEN YOU TOOK ME BY THE HAND
SAID I WAS YOUR WOMAN ’N IF I WERE SMART I’D LET YOU BE MY MAN
I GUESS FATES GONNA HAVE IT’S WAY NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO
AND I’M ALREADY MISSING YOU

BRIDGE
WE BREAK OUR PROMISES WE BREAK EACH OTHER’S HEARTS
THEN WE ACT LIKE WE DON’T CARE
WE BREAK THE WORLD YES, WE’RE TEARING IT IN TWO
AND I BROKE ME RIGHT AFTER I BROKE YOU

SO HERE’S MY STORY AND IF I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START
START IT IN GLORY END IT UP IN BROKEN HEARTS
I FEEL LIKE CRYING BUT WHO WOULD I CRY TO
SO I’LL JUST SIT HERE MISSING YOU

I’LL BE FOREVER MISSING YOU

Hi J&B/Lawrence,

A great write it is. So is the interpretation. We already commented on this song on soundcloud.
The writing video works for us. In our opinion some more pictures could have been inserted, but this surely is a pretty one!

Janice & Bud,

This is an outstanding version of Lawrence's song. Excellent arrangement and beautiful delivery by Janice. And I love the lyric video - so well done!

Thank you! If I were to do it over I'd put a picture of a pond or spring during the ripple effect while the fiddle takes the solo. More pix of Janice would have been good but I don't have anymore that are sad or contemplative. I'm gonna keep at the lyric video thing and hopefully improve. You guys have set such a high standard for videos that I can only dream.

We appreciate y'all.

A brilliant song and fab production Janice and Bud, love it.

Janice, as they say on the uk X-Factor you have made this song your own.

Video works great as well, everything about this is so professional.

great listen,

With a song by Lawrence and a vocal by Janice, I knew it would be great. And IT WAS!! Really nicely done. I love the longing and heartbreak in the lyrics, and Janice delivers beautifully. Arrangement and mix are great. Enjoyed very much!! Take care. Greg

Excellent interpretation.

Very interesting arrangement and selection of instruments. Janice sounds as though she is pouring her heart out.

Beautiful. Every aspect.

The write. Beautiful.

The arrangement and instrumentation and mix. Beautiful.

Vocal (do I need to say it?) - Beautiful.

The video is just what a lyric video ought to be. Show the lyric to the song without getting in the way of hearing the music. A single picture is all you need - any more would take your attention from the write, the music, the singing - the song.

Great combination.

Beautiful.

floyd

Thank you Greg. I'm admittedly biased but I did think Janice's vocal would peel the paint right off your heart.

J & B & L, A terrific project. Great mix and a great write. A vocal that is among your best. This is pro quality from every angle. Nothing more than downright excellent. Tom

Nice presentation from start to finish! I love the photo of Janice! Even when she doesn't smile with her mouth, she smiles with her eyes! That's the perfect cover for her next album... (hint hint)

aside: JUMPSTART can provide crowd funding to cover studio costs for talented artists who don't have deep pockets. Just sayin'.

Janice could sing the phone book and it would melt my heart... but when she teams up with a song writer of Lawrence's ability, it really sparkles! Every verse had a clever line... my favorite being " I drank to happiness, then I drank to excess..." that's downright inspired!

I'd never seen the format you used for the video.. with a photo on the right accompanied by a verse at a time on the left, presented in a matching font! Now that was artsy!

And I also really like the idea of reinterpreting the songs of others on the forum. It brings a newness to a song when somebody else presents it in a different style.

What can I say? Lawrence is one of my very favorite forum song writers, Bud always has he magic production touch and Janice is one of my favorite singers... that was a total pleasure! Thanks to everyone involved!
