Description
I sent Char the lyrics to this knowing that she could capture the feelings of the character in the song. She sent me back this amazing vocal performance which I built a rhythym around. btw, I should also point out that Char sent me a first take and had no idea I was going to actually use that and post it so I take full responsibility if this thing misfires.

Lyrics
Oprah and Kahlua

David Damroze /Charlene Kankiewicz



Verse

You went to work this morning with your lunch box in your hand

Gave me a quick peck on the cheek then drove off in your van

I cleared away the crumbs from the kitchen table

feelin kind of mean like Cain towards Abel

When I dreamed of wedded bliss

I never thought it'd be like this



Chorus

Now I'm spending my day with Oprah and Kahlua

Wonderin what the hell I really mean to ya'

Am I your one true love

Or just here to raise your sons?


I'm spending my day with Oprah and Kahlua

Am I the one that means the moon and stars to ya

Or do I just clean your house

While you're out having fun ?





Verse

To my morning coffee I added just a little shot

When the View was over I'd killed off the whole pot

poured some more in my milk during my lunch time

Watched All my Children while feelin fine

by 3 in the afternoon

Doctor Phil was looking kind of cute




Chorus

Now I'm spending my day with Oprah and Kahlua

Wonderin what the hell I really mean to ya'

Am I your one true love

Or just here to raise your sons?


I'm spending my day with Oprah and Kahlua

Am I the one that means the moon and stars to ya

Or do I just keep your house

While you're out having fun ?

!OMG!
I thought you were pulling my leg. Pinhole mic on Mac because my mic broke. Then, just one try at a tune without really knowing what I was doing. I expected some back and forth and a try with your music and the new mic that should come soon. I guess you are happy or you wouldn't have put it up. I hope some other people like it. :)

I don't believe
in over thinking serendipity. Sometimes raw first takes have a certain quality that cannot be replicated.
That's why Jack Webb didn't have rehearsals for Dragnet :-)
What do you think ?
Once I got the vocal matched with the beat things just kind of rolled along.

I think
you both did a great job. I can't even imagine trying to fit music to the a capella. Cool.

Basically
I fit the vocal to a drum track by sliding the tempo control up and down until the peaks in the vocal wave matched up with a goodly number of peaks in the drum track. This gave some interesting rhythmic phrases to difficult lines such as the ' peck on the cheek' bit.
I used 205 bpm. I have no idea what Char was using :-)
This was originally an attempt to write a ' radio friendly' country lyric but I think it turned out much more interesting.
