You Called Me By Her Name Last Night


Here is a new blues collaboration with Janice.

We wrote this one again with Janice in mind who (no surprise here) sings sublimely (the outro is amazing).

Leon wrote the lyrics and I played the guitar solo bits.

Thanks to Bud for support, a lend of his ears, and recording Janice.

The rest of the band:
RealTracks in style: 564:Bass, Electric, Blues Monday Sw 065
RealTracks in style: 565:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Monday Sw 065
RealTracks in style: ~~585:Guitar, Resophonic, Rhythm Blues Muddy Sw 120
RealTracks in song: ~~425:Organ, B3, Background Blues Sw 120
RealDrums in style: Nashville128^01-a:SideStick, b:Ride

You called me by her name last night

Everything is clear now
I am awake
Thought I had a true love
But all of it was fake

Everything is crystal
So much I could say
Doesn’t seem to matter, though
Everything has changed

You called me by her name last night
No apology can put that right
I was only ever your back-up plan
Took so long but now I understand
Should’ve known that something wasn’t right
You called me by her name last night

It will disappear now
The future I thought fated
Everything is clear now
All the time that I have wasted

Everything is clear now
My viewpoint has been shifted
Whisper in your ear, my love
Should’ve known that you were twisted

You called me by her name last night
You cried a little and you held me tight
All I was to you was a back-up plan
Turns out you were just a hollow man
Should’ve known that something wasn’t right
You called me by her name last night

Ooooooooo
I trusted you
Oooooooooo
I trusted you

You called me by her name
Nothin’ ever gonna be the same
You called me by her name last night
You called me by her name last night

What a great mix

The B3 slots just perfectly.

Janice, as usual, delivers a stellar performance.

The guitar work, actually everything, just sits in the mix absolutely perfectly.

All wrapped up with a sensational ending. Smooth.

Congratulations, team.

Nice one guys, good write by Leon, great vocal by Janice, and tasteful playing from you (Tremolo is a nice touch).

Enjoyed the listen!

What a tune! I really, really enjoyed this one. It sounds incredibly professional, and I wouldn't bat an eye if I heard this on the radio alongside other classics. Of course, Janice's vocal delivery is flawless as usual - but what really got me was how well written and arranged this tune was. All of the instruments (vocals included) meld together perfectly, and the volumes and EQ's just sound so nicely balanced. Not to mention that guitar solo was incredible! You seriously make songwriting and mixing sound easy here.

Not a thing I'd change here, guys - great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Peter, Leon, and Janice

cool song!

very nice and tasty solo

great vocals by Janice

https://youtu.be/ZOgTVJOdFVU

this is a link to a song "I'm Not Lisa" by Jessi Colter from years ago

your song made me think of this, I remember when I heard it, I put

that idea in my mental file bank as excellent song material.

Strong use of it in this song,

enjoyed,

Kenny

So professional on all levels; love the intro and solo, Peter and Janice your vocals simmer - a classy and restrained feeling that fits the mood perfectly.
Very good!

Hi Peter,

Of course Janice can do no wrong in my eyes, but even taking that into account, this is a wonderful production in it's own right.

Inspired lyrics and everything working well.

The superb ending was the icing on the cake.

Hello, Peter, Leon, and Janice

Great Blues!
"You called me by her name last night"
So bad and heartbreaking!
I entirely agree with Scott.
Super intro and excellent guitar work. Janice's vocal is perfect for the song. Super lyric and backtrack. Super collaboration...
The B3 organ is also very tasty and effective.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.
