New Girl
on: December 08, 2018, 22:53:19
@Lane and I have been having a little more fum as Vincent/Gleason.

He wrote this little tune....I just gave it a voice.

New Girl
https://soundcloud.com/vincentgleason/new-girl

Ain't that the new girl
She is an unusual thing
She's got that look in her eye s
That burns right to the heart of me

Ain't that the new girl
She really makes me sing
When she walks by
I gotta turn

CHORUS
I've been right
I've been wrong
But I've known all along
That this kind of woman
And me giving in
Won't be no hope for me then

My friends are all tellin' me
Man you're not acting the same
Ain't no voodoo spell
That new girl's to blame

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS

Ain't that the new girl
She is unusual
She's got a look in her eye
That burns

Ain't that the new girl

Ain't that the new girl



Is this fun.....or what?

Great collaboration @Lane and @Leonard Scaper !

...this is very cool - you complement each other really well! :) I like the lyrics and what Leonard did with them....

I particularly love the melody - I think that it captures the essence of the lyrics very well :) I like the pauses used during the singing of the lyrics - it is very effective and takes one from the verse to the chorus very smoothly. I also liked the instrumental section very much-it sounds fun and mirrors the atmosphere set out by the lyrics nicely. I enjoyed listening! Thanks for sharing! :D

PS - my only issue - the ending note is sounding a bit abrupt - (I thought that I had erroneously pressed the stop button). Is it intentional?

Hey @Rachel_D .....thanks for stopping by. I'm glad that you liked this one. @Lane 's melody and lyrics in this tune fit my style like a glove.

That ending was definitely intentional. It felt like the song needed to be a quick hitter in general and I had two images for the ending. I considered fading it out as if she was walking on by without acknowledging the fact that she was being watched. I opted instead for having her suddenly stop and stare back.

Do I understand correctly that you did a cover?
@Leonard Scaper , you certainly are a man of surprises.

And yes, it's a very nice song @Lane . So I take nothing back  from my question.
If it is a cover, I'm only surprised how you manage to keep this level of perfection and artistry at this pace.

But cover or no cover, this again is a result that is very Leonard worthy.
Be back later to give it another spin.
Kind regards, Gus

Hey Gus! @LePlongeur . This is not really a cover. @Lane (Lane Vincent) wrote the lyrics and the melody and sent it to me as a raw demo. His demos, though, definitely have the complete DNA of the song. I just tracked the instruments and vocals for him.

I'm doing this Vincent/Gleason project as my alter ego, Steve Gleason.  ;)

Thank you for your kind words of appreciation.  :)

hi @Leonard Scaper and @Lane
what a super nice track this is  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: great groove, catchy!

small detail, but i was thinking wouldn't it be nicer if "to blame" on the 1.01 minute mark would be sung a bit later, so a pause between

that new girl's.....and...to blame so that to blame hits / accents that streched guitar note of the instrumental piece taht follows

what a great song guys  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Ahhhh...., I see.
Bring your alter ego our love, if you will.
And beautiful it is.
Kind regards to the three of you, Gus

Ooh, I really like this!!! It gives me a Fleetwood Mac vibe somewhere between the earlier Peter Green era and the much later Destiny Rules era. Both of which I love.

Alter-ego Steve Gleason. 😆

Oh! And is that pic for the song that famous painting? I can't think what it's called.

@Dutchbeat .......I see what you mean about that spot.

@monty_lameer .....thanks for checking this one out. That picture was lifted from the web....not famous that I know of....at least it wasn't before it got used on Vincent/Gleason's new hit single!  ;)

HA! It'll be famous soon then! 😆

I just figured out where I'd seen it before - the cover of National Geographic from 1984 called Afghan Girl.

I know everything.  :pompom:

Some very good voodoo you have going together @Leonard Scaper  and @Lane . The melody drew me in- love the way you go straight from chorus into verse- a nice contrast to the pauses ( which Mr Gleason seems to have borrowed from his alter ego ;).
The instrumental break and harpfills are really well done.
The abrupt ending I get, though I`d like to hear you end it on "new girl" without the instrumental tag- then I`m left with her image like a heart stopper :o

Robert

Hey @robertkc ....that's a pretty good idea. Here's just that alternate ending:

What do you think @Lane @LePlongeur @Dutchbeat @monty_lameer @Rachel_D  ?

I like it.


Is this fun...or what?
