The Best Kept Secret (Apokafunk w/Alannah)

Description
Apokafunk was kind enough to allow me to have my "tinker" on one of his tunes (A Quiet Moment - http://www.macjams.com/song/44565). Recently I was listening to some music with some friends and they were fascinated by those flute-like high notes that Mariah Carey is able to achieve. So, I wondered whether or not I could pull those off myself - I attempted to throw a couple of them into this tune here .... not sure if I pulled it off or not.

Lyrics
I don’t wanna
Talk about it
How you made me feel
That time
When you caught me off guard
Oooh I think I love you
But I don’t wanna say
That out loud
Ooooh
It’s my best kept secret
Cause nobody knows
Nobody knows
Maybe now you do
That I love you
That I love you
Shhhhhhhh
It’s a secret
It’s a secret between you and me
Shhhhhhh
Mmmmmm oooooh
I love you
Shhhhhhh
Shhhhhhh
Don’t tell anybody
Mmmmmmm
Mmmmmmm
Oooooh I love you
Yes I – yes I do
Yes I do
Oooooh
Maybe one day
I’ll say this to you too
I’ll tell you
That I love you
That I love you
Yes I do
I love you
Oooooh
Yes I - Yes I do
Love – Love you

Thanks Len ....
.. I try to add some lyrical differences to each song I do ... so as to keep on experimenting and not sound too much like the same thing time and time again.

Now, this wouldn't by chance be a sequel to, "Forbidden", would it...
... go head on then, Mizz Lady...

Simply, beautiful and, on all accounts.

Sometimes ya just can't resist the urge to do a little "butt shinning" when ders dat much ray and warmth in the light of star power...

Can't wait to hear the sequel to "this"...

Yours, truly...

ps speaking of "this", doncha just hate it when the heart drops such huge crumbs "this" close to it's locale...

Now listen to that range! Gorgeous, as always. Your tinkers are genius. I love the improv feel you give to the songs...heartfelt and REAL. Just you and the music in the moment. Love it.

Alannah said 3398 days ago (August 5th, 2008)
Thanks Kassia ....
... pretty much everything I record is basically improv as I tend to listen to the tune just once or twice and then just start singing ... and the lyrics often spill out as I am recording and I have to go back later and write down what I actually sang ... hahaha sort of like one big jam session for me !

Patrick and I were lucky enough to have an early "sneeky peek" and both of us fell in love with with this beauty. This final master is just a big step up from a wonderful place indeed. You two have produced a "to kill for " track ..imho! : -]

Vic Holman said 3396 days ago (August 7th, 2008)
well if ya ask me...
I think you pulled off those high notes very well.... without having to stand on a ladder yet.

I should also mention, that you have a great way of picking out a melody on the songs you choose as well.
Check out my latest song called Mean Streets
Alannah said 3395 days ago (August 9th, 2008)
yes ....
.. you know Vic .. this is one of the things I find so interesting about Macjams ... is when more than one person creates their own version of the same song ... how the melody creation can be so different ..... I did a M2 tune once ... and so did Mysti .. and so did M2 himself .. and Biba_Nova .. and then Biba_Nova got all three versions and somehow managed to mix them into ONE tune .. and as different as the three melodies were .... in the MIX they all sounded so GREAT together ..... ah such fun ... if anyone is interested in this MIX UP of three totally different collabs .. it is here: http://www.macjams.com/song/36783 (actually there are TWO Versions of this tune - this one is the Leonard Cohen Version - which I prefer) .. the other one is here: http://www.macjams.com/song/36786 (a slightly faster tempo)
