Winter in Love
on: December 22, 2018, 13:21:11
I've finally got this up on SoundCloud. To be honest I'm feeling a bit jaded with it now as I'm not very well and I'm helping my Sister sort out some stuff following a family bereavement on the 18th, so understandably the fun has gone out of the process a bit.

Anyway ... Winter in Love ( 65 bpm / side-chained reverb / synth solo etc )

This is probably the nearest I will ever get to creating a Christmas Song. The orchestral idea came first and then the lyrics and vocal performance.

After a year of doing quite a few instrumental tracks, it's nice to end the year with a song as lyric writing is still important to me. The words keep coming out of the 'ether' so I keep writing them down.

Lyrics - Winter in Love - P Goodrich (Dec 2018)

Now it's Winter and the days grow shorter
At night there's a chill in the air
But the frost and the snow cannot break me
'Cause I'm in love with an angel so fair
Who entered my world on the Autumn breeze
And captured my heart with a prayer

(C)
The snow falls, from heaven above
So it's good to share Winter in Love

Now there's tinsel and lights round the fireside
And Santa's soon coming to call
And with laughter you pull on my heart-strings
With your mistletoe kiss in the hall
So we wrap up warm from those Winter nights
And when I hold you, the snow starts to fall

(C)
And the snow falls, from heaven above
So it's good to share Winter in Love
Winter in Love

(Bridge)
Oh, I'll never forget that first Winter-time
And that Snowman we made in the glade
And my hand holding yours through those days and nights
With a promise of Springs serenade
And will Summers have passed since that special time
It's still good to share Winter in Lo - o - --o - ove

(C)
The snow falls, from heaven above,
It's still good to share Winter in Love
And while the snow falls, from heaven above
It's still good to share Winter in Love
Winter in Love

Iím very sad to hear of your verdriet/sadness, @MrBouzouki .
Perhaps I may try to bring back a little smile. The missus likes your song very much. And since she has very little with songs but more with plateel (a word that is unknown by g translate - although it exists for centuries) and paint.

And I would like to show off my immense knowledge of gear:
- I know of the Albion Country Band (I have their debut LP)
- I know of Freddy Garity too, although at the time I thought one LP was enough

To convince you 100% I like your song too. What there not to like? Yes, I donít like christmas songs, but Iím glad to make an exception in this case.
Be strong. Please.
Kind regards, Gus

I'm sorry for your grief. I hope you recover as soon as possible. These days make me sad too. Last year I lost my mom right at this time ... I'm still shocked to see her empty chair!
I really liked the song, the arrangement is very good, and the sounds of your Hailon Sonic are great. I do not know that workstation, they have spoken to me very well about its features and sounds. I've been watching some videos about this device and I also like what they say.
Returning to your track; I have enjoyed hearing you. The lyrics are deep and poetic and your voice accompanies the whole story very well. I wish you a Happy New Year from my heart
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times
