 â€œDeeper Blue”

http://schicksville.com/Music/DEEPERBLUE.mp3

Lyrics: Cal Francis DiFalco

Music: John Lawrence Schick

Vocal: Teresa

Red and green, black and white
The colors in my life tonight
But when I turn my mind to you
You know I’ll need a darker blue

Black and red, things we said
And things we never meant to say
Gold and brown, feeling down
Colors washing into grey

When I turn my mind to you
Yes, I’ll need a deeper blue
There's so little I can do
Think I’ll paint you, deeper blue

Summer nights, summer rain
They can’t wash away this pain
Lighter reds, fading fast
All the things I can’t surpass

When I turn my mind to you
Yes, I’ll need a deeper blue
There's so little I can do
Think I’ll paint you, deeper blue

One of my favs so far John. Really love the melody on that chorus:

When I turn my mind to you
Yes, I’ll need a deeper blue
There's so little I can do
Think I’ll paint you, deeper blue


nice to hear you do a piano solo too. Lovely track.

And I can see why.  Nice John.

I'll just kick back with my cup of Mocha and chill. :D  Where's that tip jar?

Glad you like this tune Mike.

Hmm... All the years I performed in night clubs I never used a tip jar, though I did receive tips - mostly in the form of alcoholic beverages. No, I'm not an alcoholic - really Brenda.:D I'm not an alcoholic, I'm not an alcoholic, I'm not an alcoholic...

John:cool:

Then what's up with that silly hat--the one with the two beer cans and tubing running all around? :P

Now Brenda, the only reason I borrowed the dang thing in the first place is because you said that your Magnum 40's wouldn't fit on the hat.  :P

Hey Johnny, how about a request for my wife.  Not sure if you do such things.  She would like to hear your version and take on "Don't Cry For Me Argentina".   Yeah, I know it's a cover...but hey, it doesn't hurt to ask. :D

I'd like to take this request by your wife Mike, but there's no way I'm going to compete with the original. What a great song it is!

Best, John:cool:

Thanks SW! By all means, order that bourbon for both of you - and send me the bill.

Best, John:cool:

Aw John, you could give them a run for their money, I just betcha.  Before you ask, Brenda has about a half dozen different artists playing it.  I just thought it would be cool to say I have one from our own TSF musicians in the stable.  Don't sweat it.

PS: I will be sending you a PM, I hope you like it.

That was fsking incredible, I haven't been here long, but its by far my favorite track of heard here. I'm not going to gush over everything I liked (although the piano work is killer), so I'll move on to my one sugggestion.love the melody, but I get caught on the... its not the right word, but 'abruptness' of "I think I'll paint you, deeper blue", I just think something smoother could have been used.

 

Awsome work.
