Heartbreaker, a capella


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This afternoon I listened to Taylor Morgan's Collab. I had some words, not great words, but words just the same..in twenty minutes. Inspired, I sang with his melody in mind. It, no doubt, stinks. And I can't chop and embellish a track. This is slowed down, with pauses and no click track. If, by any chance in hell, it is worth mixing with Taylor's song, it could be re-done. Well, that's that. I've not done anything for awhile. It felt good to try. And, thank you, Taylor. Don't worry about saying anything. I'm just glad I did something. Thanks, guys.

Lyrics
You're playing with my heart
I'm all torn up inside
You told me, you loved me
But now, I know you lied
>
I gave up all my plans
To follow you around
I lost my life in yours
And now, it can't be found
I gave all I could give
Asked you for nothing more
Than friendship and your love
And still, my heart, you tore
>
You're playing with my heart
But now, I know your game
You steal what you can take
Heartbreaker is your name
>
You cheated and abused
You're on to number two
You're just a heart breaker
Whose love is never true
Soon, you'll be left behind
Still feeling like a fool
With no one to love you
Because you are so cruel
>
All this playing with hearts
Like decks of cards, you'll fall
There's nowhere you can hide
You could have had it all
You could have had it all

Hmmm
Stinks? Not a chance, Char. I always enjoy your A Cappella pieces. Your emotions emulate from every word... Sad, oh so sad. Touches my heart, your lyrics always do.

Dani,
you are so generous. I'm always amazed at your gifts and your beauty. Thank you so much.

Michael,
you are generous, as well. The great ones are just that because they share the love and have no ego. I am going to interpret your comment attached to Dani's comment as you're agreeing with me about her, too. How you snuck that in before my reply, I don't know. Thanks.

Heartbreaker
Strong vocal & heartfelt lyrics. It would be interesting to hear this against the backer that inspired it.

PaulaMunk said 2403 days ago (May 17th, 2011)
Yeah,
if I could use what Taylor posted and chop it up well, I'd have done so. I wish I could do that sort of thing well. I tried, but gave up. The phrasing would change to fit better. But, I doubt Taylor would like this. Thank you, Dave. Much appreciated.

Not many of us would have the guts to present our art and emotions in such a raw and unfiltered way. You're sounded strong here.

Finally,
I could sing a bit without coughing. I'm still not clear of that. Since I can't write music, I can only record my ideas. I lose a bunch because I don't go to the computer. They're probably better off being lost. ;)
Thank you, Andrew.

Takes some guts to do this, really well done nice song well sung
PaulaMunk said 2403 days ago (May 17th, 2011)
Not guts,
just plain nuts. If I didn't have this place and you nice folks, I would just stand in the bathtub with a recorder, like I used to. annoying you with these things is my only fun. How about the cat's playing with something under the desk? My girls are so helpful. Thank you, Neil.

Gee,
Karen, thank you. I do try. Maybe someday, I'll write something terrific. I think you have to keep at it. Otherwise, you lose all momentum. I've really liked a few of mine. I'm satisfied with that. I am most grateful for the listen. :)

Ms. Munk
I hope you can get some music to go with this. Lots of emotion coming through. Excellent lyrics, as always. How does your friend Char feel about this one? She ought be liking it, I would think. Really great to hear something new from you.

Well,
I had the first four lines, then I heard taylormorgan's collab tune and tried to cut it up to make a song but it was pretty bad. Char is happy to be able to sing something. I don't know if the lyrics are much but yes, there is emotion tied up in there. It is wonderful of you to stop by and I'm grateful for the listen. Thank you, Reggie. :)

If it
makes you feel good then do it..... I'll tell you now, that not many of us sound very good without backing, so the fact that you do sound good, says it all..... and I want that vibrato back!, Regards M

Years of practice
singing without music must help. Till MJ, drivers on the road heard me, whether they liked it or not. Thank you, Maurice. I appreciate you're saying that. :)

Thank you,
Chris. You are always so very kind. Well, I don't know if Taylor would even like this song. No, I don't think he's a pirate. :)

ted23 said 2402 days ago (May 19th, 2011)
Bang!
What a belter!
Way to commit to the performance.
With no music to disguise/hide anything this sounds tight, well phrased and confident. Even more impressive is your control. You don't fly out of tune half way through each word like I do.
Well done!
PaulaMunk said 2402 days ago (May 19th, 2011)
That's nice to know.
I'm very used to singing with no music. I did it all the time. Ed, you are the neatest young man. I don't think you are that bad. At least, I've never heard you sing badly. Thank you for the encouragement. :)

This is so pure. It's nice to hear just one instrument played so well. I love the vibrato in your voice.

Stan,
Every time I see your pic, I think of Humpty Dumpty. Maybe it is because the guitar is white. That is such a nice compliment. Many thanks. :)

Intense
Something about a single unaccompanied voice that generates an almost unbearable intensity at times. You achieved that, Char.

Compelling and powerful.

I wanted to put the music
in there but I could not do what I wanted with the bits Taylor had. So, I just used the melody as a starting point. I'm up for re-singing to fit if anyone wanted to bother. Thank you for listening and the vote of confidence. :)

Yeah?
I do the best I can though I'm never sure where the ideas come from. I don't do more than one or two takes, usually. Since I had a cough for quite awhile now I'm surprised I can get anything out. That's so very nice of you. Thank you.

Hi Char. I like your a cappella postings. The raw emotion you generate is wonderfully honest and natural. Take care, Peter.

ambitious, daring
In some ways your delivery reminds me of some of the greats from the 40s and 50s. I bet you would be quite at home singing some of those classics.

Well, I was a mere tot in the 50's
but my Dad sang all those songs. He really has a nice voice. I want to try a song but I have no way to make the music. I'll do what I can. Great songs. Thank you.

Pure
Singing a cappella is a bit like walking around downtown at lunchtime... naked. It's not always a pretty sound, but your tones here are honest --- and pure. ;)

I sing
without music because it is easier for me than trying to make a music background. I've lost thousands of songs because I didn't record them. Now, because of MJ, I actually have some melodies saved. Thanks, Joe.
