Collaboration with Siobhan Dakay
on: June 15, 2016, 16:31:26
@Siobhan Dakay  offered to remix a song for me, and it came out beautifully, so I thought I'd post it in here.

The song is Barricade, and it now sounds great - I love the guitar sound especially.

Hope you all enjoy, and that it is the first of many future collabs!

Lyrics:

I remember walking in the rain with you
Water falling gently on your skin
I remember talking in the rain with you
As my heart was caving in

I remember listening to your secret song
Sitting lost in silence by your side
I remember singing as the sun went down
And breaking up inside

Against your eyes, against your smile, I built a barricade
Against your eyes, against your smile, I built a barricade
Because you'll never be mine, you'll never be mine
You'll never be mine, and that's alright, that's alright

Though I know you're living in another world
And I might never see your face again
I've yet to discover any other you
That can melt my heart within

Ow yes @jameshargreaves and Heiko, this sounds fantastic!! Love this song, instrumentation, vocals, backvocals, the arrangement, the time signature changes. Wow. Well done!!!

@Siobhan Dakay maybe you can autotune the 2 off-pitch vocal notes at 1:38 and 1:45 ? (maybe it's my ears, so feel free to ignore That'd make it perfect ;-)
Very well done guys, KARMA for both of you!

@Siobhan Dakay and @jameshargreaves impressive work! Other than agreeing with @MartiMedia with the vocal spots he pointed out this is top shelf.

Oh @MartiMedia these two notes really slipped through.
Not that I have recognized them priorly - but in deed there are these two off notes.
Well, I do it. :-)

This is a great song and a great collaboration, you two! I love the storytelling aspect to the lyrics and the song is very melodic and has unexpected variations in it that really draw me in. Well done!
