I Think Of You (with Paddler)

Description
This started life as a Bossa and I played with it for weeks, then I heard a song with mainly a piano and decided I would slow it down and ask Richard (Paddler) if he would like to do a piano part for me. He messaged me back and said it would take about a fortnight before he could help, so i waited and in just over a week he emailed me asking for the lyrics.
I sent him only a track with the simple drum, guitar and vocal, along with the lyrics and chords you see below at 11pm that night and next morning he sent me what sounded like a concerto track. I pulled it into GB, (immediately deleted my guitar part) added cello and violins and was thrilled with the results.. I've been tweaking since and I think with the advice Richard gave me, it's as good as I'm going to get it. I just hope you like it.

Lyrics
I Won’t Care
Intro. C / Am / D7 / G7
1
C G Dm C
When evening lets the shadows fall, I think of you,
C G Dm C (E7/ Am)
And then again at sunrise, I think of you,
Am D7 C
When winter days bring rain, or even snow,
E7 Am D7 G7 C ( Fma.7 )
I won’t care, as long as you are there.
2
C G Dm C
While strolling in the springtime, I think of you,
C G Dm C (E7/ Am)
And on a Summer evening, I think of you,
Am D7 C
The meadow full of flowers dance and sway,
E7 Am
Before my eyes.
D7 G7 C (C7)
But I might as well be blind, if you’re not there.
Chorus.
E Am C7 F/ Fm
All that really matters, is reflecting in your eyes,
C A7
And all the World can disappear,
D7 G7 C
Just as long, as long as you are there.

Instrumental. 1st two lines of verse ; C /G7 / Dm/ C x2
Am D7 C
The meadow full of flowers dance and sway,
E7 Am
Before my eyes.
D7 G7 C (C7)
But I might as well be blind, if you’re not there.

Chorus.
E Am C7 F/ Fm
All that really matters, is reflecting in your eyes,
C A7
So all the World can disappear,
D7 G7 C
Just as long, as long as you are there.
3
C G Dm C
You drive away the shadows; make the skies more blue,
C G Dm C (E7/ Am)
You bring out all the sunshine; make it all seem new,
Am D7 C E7 Am D7 G7 C
But if the time should ever come, when the Sun no longer shines I won’t care, no I won’t care, if you are there.
(Am)
Dm G7 C / Fm7 / C / Fm7 / Cma7 / C
I won’t care, as long as you are there.

Maurice Vizard !2/ 01/ 2011.

I can't imagine this as a Bossa
but thankfully I don;t have to.
Excellent song writing and delivery Maurice. Rich's piano if beautifully done as is the rest of your tracks on this.

What a lovely sone my friend. I love it

Moviz said 2394 days ago (January 27th, 2011)
The Bossa idea
was when I was playing with the chords initially Ed, but once it was slowed down the lyrics arrived and when Richard sent his piano piece I was floored by what can come from a few chords and a croaky melody. If that isn't inspiration for people to learn piano, I don't know what is. In fact I DL'd the GB piano lessons, but I think I'm a bit too long in the tooth to learn now., regards M

Smooth accompaniment, graceful, and a teeny bit Cat Stevens-ish vocals? Bit of a Cat theme, too, i think.

Very nice.

VicDiesel said 2393 days ago (January 28th, 2011)
Great
This sort of music works great for you. I really love your vocals here.

The piano & orchestra works great too. But I don't like the drum. It's too upfront, and to be frank too monotonous. The song would probably work as well without.
Check out my latest song called East Texas Landscape
Moviz said 2393 days ago (January 28th, 2011)
Thanks Vic
Love your comment..... the drum I wanted to be kept simple and deep to maybe mimic a heart-beat that's probably why you find it monotonous; I take your point, but when I tried it lower in the mix, being so deep, it just disappeared, so I raised it again. Thank you anyway and very pleased you liked this, regards M
Check out my latest song called Angels
VicDiesel said 2393 days ago (January 28th, 2011)
Drum
I guess the drum is also slightly out of character. You're using a somewhat aggressive pop sound. Try to find a sample of an orchestral big drum, those have a rounder sound.

Maurice,
This is just.wonderful and so different from anything else I have heard of yours. it is rich and expressive, the lush piano and your added strings giving wonderful and tasty support to your strong vocal. This is, I think, one of your most beautiful numbers. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Congratulations to both of you for sipuch a fine performance of what.will surely become a MAURICE CLASSIC.

I Think of You
Hi Maurice! I thought I'd commented on this last week, but I see I didn't - so sorry! I've played it a dozen times since then - my bad! this is terrific, I just love the combo of you and Rich, and as always your voice just sounds so great! thanks to both of you for this and again sorry that my comment (until now) was apparently all in my head!

Emotion provoking song, Moviz. Very intimate and real. I'd call you a smooth crooner with class.

Splendid
Richard did a fine job on the piano and you've not exactly disgraced yourself with the singing and arrangement.

Very nice indeed!

Cheers

i think of you
yo bro mo....sorry i missed this one. good all round coon-tune. perfect accompaniment from that paddler guy. not so sure about the strings...i can understand the inclusion but i wonder whether they add anything other than that all too familiar 'string' sound. the song itself says it all and i find the strings gild the lily. ok, that's enough string vitriol. you're spot on with the delivery as usual maurice. keep at it uncle.

Glad you
approve Julian and it was remembering your advice on another song that inspired me to ask Richard to play. The strings are included as part of the slow build up as much as for variety and I think they give a nice lift, before the final come down. Thank you my friend for giving a listen, regards M

I think of you
This is just beautiful. I like that you've included the chords to it - I played along and really enjoyed that. There are some interesting chord changes in there like the Dm and the C to E which is a nice touch. And of course overall, that unmistakable Moviz grace. I can't quite get my head around it being a Bossa Nova though - maybe you should revisit it sometime? Your voice sounds great on this and Richard's work is as always impeccable. Really enjoyed this, especially playing along. More people should do this.

So glad
you joined in with this re the chords Stephen, tho' I can't understand why when you post chords with a song they move along to the beginning of the line instead of remaining in their true positions... pleased you sorted it though Stephen. Thank you kindly for those complimentary remarks too, which are very much appreciated, regards M

excellent
what a good decision to go with Richard's piano. he brings such a solid, stately confidence to the keys. he's given you a gorgeous backdrop for your sweet song. you amaze me with that effortless vibrato, maurice! i just love the changes the Chorus brings. the strings add a wonderful texture. 3:04 of the piano solo was so beautiful - yay Rich! you gents have made a super lovely song for us romantic types.i enjoyed it mightily, anne
