You Are the One

By Jim Wood on November 25, 2018 9:27 pm

Lyrics from an unrealized 1963 song: "You don't know / what I don't know / And I don't know / what you don't know / and you(a)'re the one for me." My girlfriend at the time was less than whelmed. Vocals, lightly tuned in Melodyne: Jim Wood.

Thought I'd work this up, since this will probably be my last year on WB (increasing hearing loss).

Got a really harmonic quality. Lots of layers. Is that your voice manipulated? Very cool and I am definitely "whelmed". Nice beat too. Sorry to hear about the hearing loss. Hoping it won't hold you back in WB 2020.

Loving this cascade of fractured melody.  Well done!

Beautiful and quirky, really like it!  Sorry about your hearing loss sad

A very pleasing chord progression and sweet use of the vocal layers.

I love the way all the voices come together, rhythm and color alike, there's elements of a classical overture in the way you composed. Very good song, much enjoyed smile My best wishes of health to you heart

Bummer about the hearing loss, but this has a very catchy and upbeat feel to it.  Another #1 smash hit on another planet.

Yeah, that's my (only sightly modified) voice; I try not to wear it out.

Thanks for your wishes. The hearing loss is mostly heriditary, though I'm sure there were some concerts in there. smile

nice harmonies, especially in the end section. Peaceful and calming... not so usual for your work here, so nice to see that you can also handle that departement smile  Very sorry to hear about your hearing issues. I also got a slight tinnitus last year to my left ear. It was at a Magma concert! Forgot my earplugs home... on the other hand, I have been in these situations for decades, so probably it was time. But I hope you can keep going... one of my biggests heroes, Hans-Joachim Roedelius has been almost deaf on the left side since the very early 70´s (because of the industrial noise music they made in Berlin Zodiac club). Nevertheless, he has been able to create most beautiful music since that and still going strong... so there´s hope, still.

Thanks so much; the loss actually comes and goes (I posted when it was quite bad).

Wow, I love everything about this except the hearing loss. That really stinks. My ears are not happy these days either. Take care, Jim!

Perhaps I could pass myself off as a kind of low-rent Beethoven. smile

You got the chops!

Lovely, - at first I thought you must have used an old 50s - 60s sentimental pop song, then read the description which makes this so much sweeter, and its very sweet. Sad to hear about the hearing, hopefully gets better! WB wouldn't be the same without you weekly doses of weird fun!

Thanks! I didn't think of it as sweet, but more of a reflection of my ambivalence. ::)
