Fate Is A Woman

This time I started with an idea to combine tango and funk somehow. So I ended up with this kind of little tune. The words were born quite easily from the thought of dancing tango of life with a fatal woman.

Lyrics:

Fate's leading me and I only squeak
I dance tango to her beat.
Can't figure out those patterns of her steps
stumbling on my tangled feet.

When fate implied I blindly believed
then she smiled and changed her mind.
She said to me: gotcha and ha ha ha ha ha
her laughter was gleeful and unkind.

Fate is a woman
cunning and capricious
cruelty may be her profession
she promises, revokes
"to trust or not to trust"
that is the question.

Last night she gave me a smooch on my cheek
then at dawn she kicked my knees.
Fighting in vain, tomorrow will be sealed
not once I've had access to her keys.

Fate is a woman...

Only if fate's hand permits
finally, love will grant you a kiss
but she'll take what is hers
all the moments to miss
she'll leave you the longing for bliss.

The intention of fate baffled Hawking as well
defying any reasoning.
The secret unsolved, the meaning of her hints
in my coffin I'll be wondering.

Fate is a woman...

Janne,

Interesting in so many ways... The lyric, the melody, the instrumentation - a cool combination.

A really good mix.

I enjoyed the listen.

What a cool mashup of styles! That is a remarkable selection of RT’s and, wow, do they ever work well together.

Added to that are cool vocals, lyrics and a strong miix.

Lots of fun and a joy to listen to!

Janne,
Very positive tune. Loved satirical lyrics, especially
"ha ha ha ha" part smile smile

Interesting arrangement of tango&reggae styles and instrumental solo licks.

Thank you for posting!

Misha.

A pleasant whimsical creation...
Your lyrical story & delivery adds to the cunning and capriciousness of your work...
I really like the lines...

The intention of fate
baffled Hawking as well
defying any
reasoning.

The secret unsolved,
the meaning of her hints
in my coffin I'll be
wondering.


Really cool writing...
How in the world did you come up with this great satirical thought?"
I really enjoyed the listen!

You did a really nice job on this smile There's some really interesting chord progressions here, and I love the groove on this. It flows very smoothly, and got my toe tapping in seconds. The vocals are top notch as well. It's nicely catchy.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Janne,

What wonderful musical adventure!!!

Your imagination has gone into overdrive in the creation of this work. You've mixed and matched some really diverse music genres, and it works! You kept me entertained from start to end. I also really like the melody, the lyrics and your singing... everything sits snugly together and creates a music treat.

It's two thumbs up from me!

All the best,
Noel

Excellent lyrics, catchy tune. Loved the minor "ethnic" feel.

I enjoyed listening.

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