This is a remix of a song Di and I originally recorded in 2011. All the backing tracks are new using BIAB RTs. The original was recorded using a different music program. But the vocal is Di's original track from 2011, before her health nose-dived.

The lyric is a bit cheesy but was written to emulate the Bossa Nova style from the early 1960s - think of Edie Gorme' or Kim Novak, if you're old enough to remember either of them.

Any comments appreciated, particularly regarding the mix - I played with the mix all afternoon and still not sure if I have volume of the various tracks pretty close to where they should be. Thanks in advance.

Dance Of Love

I no longer have a copy of the lyric but I will transcribe it late this afternoon and post it then. Di has 2 medical appointments between now and then.

Here is the lyric, as promised ...

Dance Of Love
© 2011 Alan D. David, BMI / Diana Randall, BMI

(v1)
Take my hand, gently pull me to my feet
Hold me close, as our bodies meet
The Bossa Nova plays, and my body sways
When you look into my eyes, it’s then I realize
We’re dancing the dance of love

(v2)
Whisper soft, sweet magic in my ear
Lead me on, say the words I want to hear
I know this can’t be wrong, it’s written in the song
We can dance all night, and greet the morning light
As we dance the dance of love

CHORUS
Don’t believe in love at first sight
But somehow I know this is right
I know I want to dance with you
Forever, the dance of love

(v)
And now each night, every single day
We dance, the Bossa Nova way
We know the moves, we make them so smooth
We feel in love, to that Latin beat
Dancing the dance of love

CHORUS
Don’t believe in love at first sight
But somehow I know this is right
I know I want to dance with you
Forever the dance of love

Really nice work on this one smile I love the upbeat and positive it is! The bossa groove is superb and got my toe tapping right away. I can imagine this sounding great in a live setting.

Really good job here - thanks for sharing!

Al,
As a relative newbie here I think that`s the first time I`ve really heard Di sing...all I can say is, WOW! Nuanced phrasing, sensuous interpretation, beautiful tone... all so much more important than the lyrics here ( which are just fine).
Very, very good backing track- the flute is a perfect fit.
All the best to you both,

Robert

This nailed that 60's Bossa-Nova style perfectly. That flute was the perfect lead instrument! Di's singing is fantastic. The mix is spot on, don't change it.

Robert,

Thank you! We appreciate that very much. I'll pass on to her your wonderful comments regarding her singing. Her health is very poor now and she's in bed most of the time. But I'll make sure she gets a chance to read them tomorrow. Thanks again.

Alan

Mario,

You are always so kind to our music. We appreciate that very much. And we're delighted you enjoyed this one. Taming that flute and, on occasion the piano, was quite a task. I compressed them as much as possible without loosing their tone and ambience, but I still spent almost an hour manually adjusting the volume at the individual measure level. I'm delighted the effort ended with kind words such as yours. Again, many thanks.

Alan & Di

Alan and Di,

Really nice on every level. I really enjoy a good bossa. Backing sounds great, and Di's vocal is just right.

Very well done!

Loving it here! Sounds like it came right out of the 60's, lyrics and arrangement spot on and Di really nailed that vocal.

Cheese is yummy!

I'm literally finishing a cheese sandwich as I write this, but that's not what I'm referring to. wink

I especially enjoyed the vocal. It's nice to hear the flute get some love in the arrangement.

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

Awwwwwww .... thank you so much, Josie! We appreciate that so much. We see this as something between "Girl From Ipanema" (Astrid Gilberto) and "Blame It On The Bossa Nova" (Edie Gorme'), closer to the former rather than the latter. Glad it works for you. Wishing you well.
