can you hear it? 1231212
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Rupak and have used it for a few songs
Raat Meh - in the Night
I did have to think…is this TOO sentimental? Can I really say lines like
Born in love
born to love
And then I thought 2 things:
- the world NEEDS more sentiment. Look what not being sentimental, or NOT FEELING, has led us to. We need MORE feeling not LESS
- I am a grandmother. I am ALLOWED, nay, ENCOURAGED to be sentimental.
I urge you ALL to let out your inner granny.
It will do you so much good!
Do let me know what you think?
Now I will share the promised in-progress performance of 'Planets Shift ' from my show at the Norwich Arts Centre for International Women's Day 2022.
Remember the newly mixed and MASTERED version will be released along with my album on the 9th June - save the date!
What you don't know and can't hear in this version is WHAT I DID NEXT!!!
All I can say at this moment is I did something very drastic as I had the two maestros Sukhdeep Dhanjal whose tabla you can already hear, plus some beautiful guitar from the one and only Giuliano Modarellli…well what would YOU do?
Here it is! The IN PROGRESS version…..
Hearts beat planets shift
Pulse quickens rushes through
I keep on wanting everything
And you to want it too
The lines are drawn the walls are high
The way forward not clear
Come take my hand come walk with me
Sing your song unlearn the fear
Break the chains undo the bonds
Don’t be less than you can be
Life is short but truth is long
Claim your destiny
You were not born to stand aside
You were born to dance to sing
You were born in love, born to love
You're the dawn you are the spring
We were not born to stand aside
We were born to dance to sing
We were born in love, born to love
We're the dawn we are the spring
With my love!
