I finally got around to actually turning the lights back on in my recording studio and put some sounds to tape, or at least to hard drive. I have two songs that I had been working on earlier in the summer, but life got in the way, and I shelved them until the muse decided to re-visit. "Say Say", is a pretty straight ahead Rock/Pop song. Its quite an old song, I wrote it almost ten years ago, and recorded a few demos but I never really finished it. It didn't quite fit with the sound of any the bands I played in over the years, although I always played it when I did solo acoustic shows. I am trying to record some songs that have some commercial potential, so this was written with an eye to that. This is a very rough mix, I finished adding the harmonies over the weekend and did a quick mix so I could listen to the song outside the studio, in the car etc. The mix took very little time, which is a good omen. I still need to add some ear candy, and there is a 2 bar gap at 2:05. I left this to leave room for some creativity, and I plan on playing around with some ideas when I get back from a business trip to London next week.
As always, follow the link to listen to the song, (right click and "save as" to download), and let me know what you think!Say SayAll rights reserved copyright John McDermott, Macca Records.
