You (Remix) - Featuring Di

Di and I wrote this back in 2011 for an opportunity. It got selected - made all of $600.00 for the license. It was originally created on a different music program. I redid the music in BIAB a couple of days ago and mixed in the vocal earlier today. The description of what the buyer wanted included "... mid-tempo Bossa Nova. Make it sweet and simple. Looking for a mid 1960s sound." The lyric is barely shy of cheesy, but it got the job done.

Although the music tracks were created in BIAB 2021, Di's vocal is the original recording from 2011. Her current health issues don't make it possible for her to sing at an acceptable quality. She rarely has the strength to sing a complete song. She says "Hi!" to everyone.

For the first time, I used Soundcloud's mastering option. I get either 3 or 4 (not sure which) songs mastered free every month with my upgraded plan. I was very pleasantly surprised with the improvement.

Been away from the site for quite a while. Life sometimes hijacks your premade plans. Will be over to catch up an few recent posts over the weekend. Will see some of you then.


You

© 2011 Alan D. David, BMI / Diana Randall, BMI
(v1)
You, light up my stars at night
You, make everything so right
I don’t know what I’d do
If you ever went away

(v2)
You, lift my spirits high
You can always make me sigh
I pray to God each night
That you’ll always want to stay

CHORUS
If you ever said goodbye
I don’t know what I’d do
There would be nothing left
Of me without you

Instrumental Verse

(v3)
You, are the life of me
You set my spirit free
Without you I’d never be
The woman I’ve become

(v4)
You, you’ll never know how much
You can thrill me with your touch
It’s like magic when we kiss
When our hearts melt into one

Repeat Chorus

Hi Alan,

I love a good Bossa and this is a beauty!

Vocals - Great
Backing - Very nice
Song - Excellent
Lyrics - I like the different rhyming patterns in the verse and chorus.

You've inspired me to write a Bossa tune.

Best Regards
Nigel

Hi Di!! This is great Alan & Di. What a gift of talent to be able to deliver such a treasure on demand. I, too, love the feel of bossa and you guys carry it out as easily as a palm tree played by a breeze. I'm swaying to my 2nd play and already know I'm gonna push play again as soon as it stops because I miss the sound that much. Thanks for taking the time to share it, Alan. Stay well.

David and Di, 'You' together have collectively delivered an extremely pleasant production.

There's lots to like about this. A perfect tempo, quality vocal, excellent selection of instrumentation.

The mix is superb. Yes, no question, a great production.

Hey Marty ...

Great to hear from you. So happy you enjoyed the song. The next 4 or 5 songs I post will be spec songs ... written, of course, on demand. We've had pretty good success, over the past year or so, with licensing a few songs here and there. Can't live on it, but it's made a few car payments and bought a couple of steak dinners!

Sure do appreciate those multiple listens. Wishing you nothing but the very best.

Alan

Thanks so much, Scott. The vocal was done about 10 years ago, but the BIAB tracks are fresh - a couple of days old. Thanks for the listen and very kind words. Wishing you everything good. Take care ...

Hello Mario ...

So nice to hear from one of my very favorite upstate New Yorkers. Many thanks for the really nice comments. The most difficult part of integrating the vocal track with the new BIAB tracks was getting the timing as close to perfect as possible. It took a lot of repeats on the track alignment to get it done, but it all worked out okay. Thanks again! Best to you.

Alan

Reminds me of a time when I played bass in a 4 piece combo, and we played company parties and such as that, what a wonderful reminder, great song.

Hello, 'Al-David' & Ms. Di...

You really think the "lyric is barely shy of being cheesy" ??? Okay, then, show me where the 'cheesy' lyrics are, please. In that verse? In this one? Where?

Mr. David and Ms. Di, I don't hear anything but the sound of fresh, pure, exuberantly exposed, unapologetic words of eternally regenerative L-O-V-E floating on the wings of music from one giving heart and into the eternally grateful and accepting heart of another! Your selection of the ARVORES.STY Real Style was stunning in that its perfectly languid tempo combined with your flowing, subtle chordal progressions to throw the widest spectrum of romantic hues and shades over the song. In turn, Ms. Di obviously infused the essence of your lyrics into her soul of souls and responded to them with heartfelt emotion. The vibrato in her voice was as warm, as sweet, and as clear as birdsong in the morning.

I don't care how long ago this song was created. You and Ms. Di have graced this User's Forum with a timeless thing of beauty and a simple affirmation of the taste and feel and the touch of true love. Nothing "cheesy" about that!

Way to go! Great to hear one of your songs again. Di has a lovely voice and great phrasing. Your audio production almost always sounds radio ready and professional quality.

Great to see you both back in the forum.

You hit the target on the mark with this song... spot on with the period genre.

I really enjoyed the composition, production, and performance.

Wonderfully done Al and Di!

That's a jazzy vibrato and a half on Di. I could listen to that for hours. Great work converting it to BIAB, I'm usually not successful with tasks like that. What a treasure the two of you are!

Hi Ronnie ...

Thank you so much! And yeah, I remember those days of playing live all the time.! I sure do miss them ... but my wife's health precludes me from being away from her more than a few hours at a time.

Glad you enjoyed the song ... thanks for letting us know! best to you ...
