Song-A-Week #31 - Keeping Warm

This week's song is just a partial clip - The ending would be monotonous and misleading at this point in the recording process. So I know it ends at a weird spot, but hey - it leaves you wanting more.

Keeping Warm
Copyright 2007 Matthew C Good

We'll be snowed in
all week.
I called my boss, and called my
family.
Me and you, in this frozen
retreat.

Wasn't long before the
power quit.
It had been a while since you were
candle lit.
As the night time air
came in,

We had blankets,
we had peace.
We were keeping warm,
you and me

In that blank white
powder sea,
I was king and
you were queen.
And the simplest things
made our hearts sing.

When we lose our
focus,
We'll have memories
of this.

Thank you, Reason, for giving me piano sounds that actually inspire something other than hatred for my keyboard. I seriously tried to write a couple piano songs before i got Reason working again, using my keyboard's built in sounds... but I just couldn't pretend to be interested in the sounds I was making - so no song. The drone is also a reason patch, albeit ran through my pedals and a guitar amp and a (digital version of a) Plate reverb.

I am ALL ABOUT the plate reverbs these days. LOVE THEM.

I think the song is pretty cool. Natural piano sound! I enjoy that quite a bit. I'm excited to hear more piano driven songs now that you've got some good sounds to work with.

I think this song could pan out into something pretty cool, especially as the beginning of a cycle of maybe three songs. Kind of like "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" by Billy Joel. Like a prelude.

Vocals are kind of loud though.

I almost got a bit of a Local H feel from the vocals on this one. I dig the hidden harmonics.

yes please. when i read the words, i was like "this song will be cute." then i heard the song and i was like "this song is way sensual." and it sounds good that way. i heart the piano-drivenness as well. your voice sounds good with a piano.

p.s. thanks for a winter song.
