Good morning JPFers. Thought I'd try something a little different so have a listen and let me know what you think. A simple guitar/vocal was taken to a much higher level with a minimalist approach by my friend Mike Zaneski. Thanks Mike.

https://soundcloud.com/rickib/constant-cold

Iíll tell you lies
Hold truth aside
Do it for the warmth of you
Let you win
Give up on him
See how much hurt I can undo

I thought love simple
As this winter snow
Nothing here is easy
Just constant cold

The pale sun hides
While grey skies climb
The real world howls from the north
Can you hear me
Still care for me
Donít you know Iíve changed course

I thought love simple
As this winter snow
Nothing here is easy
Just constant cold

I never knew how solitary hearts grow weary
Iím drowning in you, youíre everywhere but here

I thought love simple
As this winter snow
Nothing here is easy
Just constant cold

Curtain call... Rikki:

I believe this is one of your best... on all fronts. Mike's musicality certainly helps but your vocal was superb in a quiet, reflective, Streisand sort of way! Those two "pregnant pauses" are so effective, allowing the listener to "catch up" with the song and it's powerful lyric. Bravo, my friend(s)! Loved every minute and second of "Constant Cold!" ----Dave

Ricki (and Mike)...

I'll second Dave's observation. This is among your best - my favorite, I think...

A beautiful write. A beautiful vocal!! The perfect production for the song.

Would have fit nicely on Joni Mitchell's "Blue" album.

Awesome.

Dave, Floyd. Vic. Doug, Calvin, and Tom..

When Ricki initially asked me what I heard accompanying her song here, I believe I said "not much."

The story, the emotion, the sadness..is all just bursting out of this song..

Much of the time, an arranger is like a film composer. If it's all there on the screen, one needs to make the music felt, and not so much consciously heard.

And that's how I felt about "Constant Cold." --It was all there, and I didn't need to amplify any of her thoughts or emotions as much as simply provide a proper container for them. A bit of starkness seemed to match the song's emotional content.

Floyd, I was thinking Joni Mitchell's piano work on "Blue" as I put together that accompaniment. Great ears, there!

Thanks for listening, all, and Ricki--I agree with the consensus here--this is definitely one of your best, and it's my favorite of yours, and I love just about everything I've heard of yours; but there's a directness to this lyric and vocal that's kind of brave as well as sadly beautiful. smile

Mike

I knew upon seeing the post title that a collaboration between you all would be good. The music captured the lyrics real well. Nice tune.

This one will rip the paint right off of your heart.

Lots of strong things going on here with the write, vocal and production.

Mesmerizing comes to mind. We enjoyed the listen!!

Thanks Mike. That's been said before but I can't hear it myself.

It's not really a co-write but Mike Z is certainly a huge part of why this came out so well. He's so intuitive when it comes to music, it's like he's in my head, hearing what I'm hearing and then making it a reality. And that's how the magic happens. smile

Jimmy, Martin, Michael, Janice, and Bud..

I'm so happy that you've listened to this beautifully sad song of Ricki's and found it as moving as I did. smile

I learned something about reverb producing this one. It occurred to me that a bigger hall and more "wet" reverb sound would actually underscore the emotional content of the lyric. It literally sounds like she's sitting and singing in a very large space--and it seems to make her seem that much more alone, somehow..I think I was always using reverb intuitively, like that, but it never became an overt thought 'til a few days ago. Reverb can really play a big part in creating tonal variations to the emotions in a song.

Rock on, everyone.. smile

Mike

That is a super vocal and an overall well constructed song. Mighty fine lyrics, too. Mike did a great job on the production -- just letting the song shine on through. I enjoyed my listen a lot.

Hey Ricki,

Made me think of some of my Carly Simon albums that I haven't heard in a long time. Loved your vocal approach, nice and tender, yet poignant. Nice work Michael as well. Beautiful song musically and lyrically--love the cello bottom!

steady-eddie.

Wow! This is killer. Fantastic write and performance Ricki. My favorite of yours by far. Great job Michael, as well. I think all the comparisons above are spot on ... a little Joni Mitchell as Floyd said, a little Carly Simon as Ed said and a little Ann Wilson as Tom said. Quite a good mixture to have. Add a little "Songbird" flavored Christine McVie style and to a lesser extent Sandy Denny and you have this tune. Beautifully done.

Dave

The write and your vocal performance are simply beautiful Ricki.

Mike your arrangement captures the delicate emotions of the piece, brilliantly. You never cease to amaze.

My favorite combo... piano and cello. sweet
