Hi all,

Our new song:



I composed this one with the program One Man Band using one of the Yamaha styles.
We decided to create an RnAM version using the program ChordPad to do the initial translation. Next we exported the midi file and imported it into BiaB.
Finally we added:
1601 Mandolin Rhythm Pop16Melodic
1595 Guitar Acoustic Fingerpicking Pop8thSteady

Love and Leaving

Arguing your right to love and leaving
Contemplating good times with pain
When all the while your eyes avoiding me
Words you say not reaching me
For a good deal, for a good deal now
You remember the times......

But oh my love it's strange, but I can only
Fear to give it another try when
Every time I look and see
It's you that gets the best of me...

So here's to all the cries and the bravery
Left in time with all the things you try to keep from me
And all the while your hands are touching me
Your arms reach out to holding me
For a good deal, for a good deal now
Remembering the times....

But oh my love it's strange, but I can only
Fear to give it another try when
Every time I look and see
It's you that gets the best of me...

And maybe someday soon we'll find
With overs and dones all left behind
Friends will ask,
We're doing well
Welcoming the freedom bell....

I created the video, using footage of the public domain movie "Few too many".
Hope you like it, any comments are welcome.
Rob

Hi R & A-M.

Lovely track which worked really well with the video.

Very nice under-stated backing, which left space for the great vocal track.

Nicely done.

ROG.

All vocals were top notch. Nice backing giving a very professional sound.
Lovely song.
Clever use of the video - it must take a while to go through the old movie to get the best bits!

Hi Rob & Anne-Marie,

great vocals and nice backing.
A beautiful sad song.
Must have had a lot of editing with the video.
Enjoyable watch and listen.

As always, up to your high standards of singing and production.

The lyrics have a sort of "English as a second language" feel to them, since various bits don't match up:

Your arms reach out to hold[ing] me
For a good deal [of time], for a good deal [of time] now


Still, it comes across as quite evocative - especially with the interesting chord choices.

Enjoyable listen!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Rob, That is an excellent vocal. The way you easily slide into a few of those falsetto notes is difficult thing to do, which you do perfectly. I like he lines "Every time I look and see
It's you that gets the best of me..." Another enjoyable listen. Tom

Enjoyed my listen and the song really took off for me with the melody change at the 1:44 mark. Good write, arrangement, mix and performance. Anne-Marie's BGV's were nice.

Enjoyed all the vintage cars in the video too.

Very pretty song!! Lovely soaring melody. And, as mentioned, your vocals (as always) are awesome. You get such a big, smooth sound on vocals. Another in a long line of excellent productions by you guys!! Take care. Greg

Yep, the video took a lot of slicing and dicing crazy

Thanks Guenter!
Kinda sad indeed....
Initially there were 2 versions of the song. Like we sad in our post, we created it with one of the (thousands available) Yamaha styles. We had different ideas about the melody and subject. We both created our own song with the same music.
This is Anne-Marie's version:
Not another Love Song

Very different ey?

Rob and Ann Marie

Another top performance.

Your work with video clips gives great dimension.

Fantastic vocals, clear and fluent.

I was a little uncertain about the ending, maybe is came slightly unexpectedly.

As usual though, fantastic writing, creative and purposeful.

Thanks for sharing

Beautiful song and video! Both of your vocals are just superb. I'm sure that you guys put a lot time and effort into the production and editing of this song. I like the melody and piano and the way that you composed the lyrics.
Very good listen!

Stunning vocals. Beautiful melody.

I really liked the way you let the music and production crescendo - subtle, but powerful.

Everything that I wanted to say has been said so all that I can add is this is another masterpiece!

I don't know how you do it but every song you put up is always your best to date! You are raising the bar again!

This is pro all the way!

Well David....
that's a sharp observation (as usual grin )
But you're right, I thought I could get away with a little "dichterlijke vrijheid" Dutch expression for 'Poetic Freedom'

And after all, it IS my second language whistle

Another masterpiece from Holland.

Wow! The vocals are stellar. The editing
of the backing tracks are simply perfect
for the vocals and the lyric. Very powerful.

You used an entire feature length film to
find those clips? Our heads would have been
spinning after a few minutes of that! It
worked really well. Like all of your vids the
clips augment and never distract from the
song. That surely takes a lot of work.

We much enjoyed it!
