Description
My friend Bingsolex came up with the song idea. Lots of bass synths involved
We added guitars at his place. Bing played the lead guitar.
Almost a dozen mixes later I ended up with this one...
We had different opinons about the mix....
Guitars or synths , that was the question :-)
In this mix I tried to balance all the ingredients as good as possible
My ears need some rest now, lol
Hope you like it

Lyrics
LOVE HURTS

What have I done to deserve this
Can't you give me any clue
You can yell if you want to
But please don't make me blue
You gotta trust me, baby
I would never lie to you

Love hurts
Love hurts
Love hurts
Love hurts

I know it ain't easy
To live with a man like me
But what you did ain't right girl
You left me here in misery
Woman, can't you see
I've been giving you the best of me

Love hurts
Love hurts
Love hurts
Love hurts

whoa cees...you take some acid? this is energised! what lovely chord progressions laid down on a solid and VERY catchy riff. you know what...it's not that i'm tiring of your effortless vocal delivery...but i wonder what you sound like with two hands round your throat and you're screaming out for help...because this one has plenty of scope for that. i LOVE the instrumental break - really accomplished and pro-sounding guitar work. your best yet...congratulations my friend!

I see
what you mean, Julian, but for some reason I can't sing very loud, my throat would be ruined after half a song. But a better singer than me could take this song to different levels
Bing did the sologuitar. Credits to him. He's the best! :-)

More people asked me that
I don't know.. I've always been a busy guy, just keep on going, and my partner gives me the room I need which is very important. She's my muse! :-)

After another listen...
...I see I'd better not slight Bing. Lead guitar has full flavor and if he wrote the tune, I hope to here more from the two of you together.

thanks, Sam!
for your kind words.
Bing did the leadguitar, I did the rhythmguitar
We've known eachother for almost 40 years, and we played a lot together.
We worked together on a lot of my songs on icomp.
Sometimes we write together.. Sometimes one of us gets stuck with a song and the other fits in some parts In this case it was me who came up with the idea for the chorus..

Tasty opening guitar riffs
Hi Cees. Tasty opening guitar riffs set this tune off very nicely. I am glad the guitars seem to have won out over the synths. Nice work Bing. Another very strong song from your seemingly endless catalogue. Congratulations. Take care, Peter.

I would never lie...
....right from the start, this was gangbusters all the way through! Music, lyrics, vocal and instrumental work--all evocative and right in line with the feeling of this song. Excellent collaboration--full marks on this Cees and Bing (what else is new?!) Thanks again for sharing your great music--I look forward to the next one already! Michael

Cool
Really cool track, this. Reminds me strongly of Chris Rea, but you have your own valuable take on it.

As with your other songs, very well put together and produced.

Very much enjoyed. Thanks!

love hurts, but we need our desserts
rich chocolatey music draws from the lyrical well of sadness. For some reason, the guitar work/tone and the great vocal delivery remind me of Dire Straits, a good thing.

Nice changes especially in the transition to the chorus. Honest vocs make me believe the lyric. Lead guitar is Claptonesque. Terrific production.
