"Conversation" with Michael
10th November 2002
I was working on this until around 3 when I started
having really naff choking attacks with blood coming out. So I
packed up but I couldn't sleep for at least two-3 hours.
i got the idea from a rap album i started listening
to yesterday. The guy, Jah Rule, says in his intro "If Only
God Would Shine His Light On Me". i thought that had a nice
metrical feel to it.
needs a bit of work. I want to throw in one bubbly arpeggio somewhere.
I thought "If Only" should just have a gospel choir
feel to it. Small problems. Drums too loud. Piano lead not loud
enough. More variety in backing.
This will be the Xmas hit of 1982.
