Always start the weekend with a song, says I...
So here's another of the songs I recorded prior to deploying to Iraq.
Did a bit more (mostly expiremental) post-production with this one.
Encore, if you wish.
Wonderful Tonight (Eric Clapton)
It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear.
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she asks me, "Do I look all right?"
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."
We go to a party and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady that's walking around with me.
And then she asks me, "Do you feel all right?"
And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."
I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes.
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize how much I love you.
It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head,
So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed.
And then I tell her, as I turn out the light,
I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight.
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."
What a touching moment.
May you return safe and soon.Posted by skylark at July 12, 2008 07:04 AM

Thanks. I'm home now. I was there last year as a small part of "the surge". If you'd like to read something I actually wrote from over there I'd suggest this post.
I recorded a bunch of songs one afternoon before I left. (Mrs G doesn't approve of discussing my reason for that, so I'll skip that part.) I hadn't really planned it - just took a cheap web cam and mic and sat down and did it. Some of the resulting videos have been posted here "un-retouched", others I've tweaked with a bit of reverb or noise reduction. All were done one take, one track, no overdubs. The encore link above will take you to the others I've posted so far.
Nicely done !Posted by skylark at July 13, 2008 09:47 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(4) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
