I usually try to avoid multiple posts, letting one song slip down the page before posting another but...I just couldn't contain myself. This was a 3-way joint effort and all around great experience for me. Thanks to Rob George's beautiful lyric and Mike Zaneski's awesome musical and production sensibilities that turned my simple melody and chord progression into this lush masterpiece. All comments welcome and thanks for listening.

FAR FROM MY ONE TRUE LOVE

The sun is in the jagged hills
The purple skyline starts to blur
I need comfort from the fear
Then in the twilight I see her

And the half-moon above
Is a quiet, peaceful dove
But until it lands
On these hostile sands
Iíll be far from my one true love
Far from my one true love

There are times I look up and ask,
Will the stars mourn me when I die?
And if I mean the world to her
Maybe I mean something to the sky

And the half-moon above
Is a quiet, peaceful dove
But until it lands
On these hostile sands
Iíll be far from my one true love
Far from my one true love

Musical Bridge

And the half-moon above
Is a quiet, peaceful dove
But until it lands
On these hostile sands

Yes the half-moon above
Is a quiet, peaceful dove
But until it lands
On these hostile sands
Iíll be far from my one true love
Far from my one true love
Far from my one true love
Far from my one true love

Nice one Ricki and Mike. Great lyrics and swishy production.
One thing is bugging me (isn't there always?)
Is "hostile" pronounced differently over there? We pronounce it "host eye l" but it sounds more like "hostel" on this.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Very lush and textured. Great work on all the vocals.

It has a wonderful gentle flow.

Well done to all!

Hey Vic, Swishy? Thanks! I think? smile Yes, hostile can go either way. I don't know if it's an American/English thing or not. When I sang it that way, it felt more natural for me so I went with it, though I can't speak for Mike. Glad you liked it, although I can't take credit for those great lyrics. smile

Hi Ricki

Your song sounds great. What a rich production! Great vocal harmony work through out. And the chorus has a strong hook.

Had me hooked from the first verse and as to my post in the General Forum this is what I am talking about collaborations and pooling togther to create something that maybe, just maybe could get "out" there. Enjoyed this one from top to bottom.

Wow - that's a beauty. Thanks for being the sponsor of my Sunday treat. grin

No surprise really, given the talents involved.

You'll probably think I'm crazy. But this sounds like it could have been a cut on "The Joshua Tree". U2 would have likely produced and sang it differently but it has that feel for me.

I think this one has legs - if any of you are pushing.....
