Black and White
on: November 25, 2018, 18:06:25
I had this pretty generic lyric had a melody in my head. gave this simple song to a friend here, and
He turned this song in to something unique.  He is responsible for the vocals and music
and I for the Lyric and Melody. this is the first  Vincent/Gleason  song.

Black and White

I sat down...
next to a girl with a smile,
took a minute or two,
till we talked, how are you..been awhile.
I see...
your twisting that ring you still wear,
You know.. remembering love so unfair,
to the heart..
chorus:
She said,
Days turned so lonely,
and day turns into night,
memories that your living,
everything is black and white...
music bridge:
3
I sat down...
next to a girl with a smile..
I remember Her well
we were young...and in love.
Chorus:
I remember days turned so lonely,
and day turns into night,
memories that your living,
everything is black and white...but you move on.
tag:
I sat down.....next to a girl with a smile.

Hey @Lane I am sure I recognise your collaborator, Well he sounds kind of familiar this Gleason guy.

I like these lyrics, particularly the twisting of the ring bit.

The tune gives off quite a bit of innocence in its simplicity. Lovely mood of melancholy and reflection there.

Yep, I think your collaborator did well, although I think he's a little too influenced by @Leonard Scaper , in stripped-back mode.  There's only one Lenny after all!  ;)
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

I love this!!!! Those words are really evocative.

Hmmmm...can't figure out who this Steve guy is though. Doesn't seem familiar at all.  ;D ;D ;D But I love the sound.

Both lyrics and vocals by the mysterious Mr Gleason  have a vulnerable almost delicate quality.
I like the way the story opens -a tentative meeting that becomes more personal.
The harp is a nice touch.
This is a cool collaboration!

@MichaelA , thanks so much Michael,  I didn`t know if it would work without a Bridge, then I heard what @Leonard Scaper  did
with that music bridge. it all worked for me, A shout out to Him for that.

@monty_lameer , thank you, I thought it might be a little bit more write in it but I didn`t want to hash it over to much.
that seems to bore people. I thought it just kind of takes you there and lets you off.  Steve really just made this his own
with his part in it.. :thumbsup:  thanks Steve!

@robertkc ,  Hi Robert, I thought so too, Steve brought that out in this song, I think thats the part I like best
just that raw honest sound in this production. I think we both had fun with this project..

Thank everyone of you for listening and commenting, and a big thanks to Steve for getting in this with me..

Well @Lane, I had no idea who that Gleason dude was .... until the harp started  ;-)

A nice lyric and it's simplicity is it's strength. Far too often,  we over complicate songs and lose something in the process.
 I think that many of the enduring songs connect in an almost primal way.

My only gripe is that it could have been more of a story,  and possibly a bit longer, whilst still keeping it uncomplicated.
Having said that, this song might be a precursor to another song ;-)

Is that a Picardy Third, I heard, right at the end of the song. played by Mr Gleason ?  Perhaps there is hope yet ?

Excuse me? A what??   ;) You can thank Lane for that, MrB.....I played it the way he wrote it.  ;)

When @Lane sent me his demo this song immediately hit home for me. The complex simplicity of the lyric is brilliant.....a succinct story of love lost as told by both parties in three minutes with a chorus that resonates. Lane's demo was the perfect road map for the production. I just uncased my '33 Kalamazoo and followed in his footsteps.

Thanks for this song, Lane. I'm looking forward to more Vincent/Gleason projects.

Oh.....for those of you still wondering who that Steve Gleason guy is....check down there in my signature.  ;)

@MrBouzouki  thank you for stopping in and listening and commenting.
I think thats becoming a habit for me, I try to keep the songs between  2:00 and 3:00 mins I should try to expand a little
and keep time minimal...if that can be done.

[ that old thing,   "write me a story in 11 words]     "god I loved you so much..i will hurt now.. forever.   

isn`t that harp cool?..Steve did a great job on this.

@Zedd .......glad you checked this one out., Karen. You, of all people, know what it feels like when a good collaboration comes together from your work with @Jambrains in Ashes For Dreams.

:)



(PS: What's that thing you guys call a whistle? Is that some sort of miniature recorder or something?)   ;D
