Sheryl Crow best bass-line groove? “My Favorite Mistake” | modern tempo probability charts copyrighted yet unclassified

The best co-writer I ever worked with was Norman Dozier. Real name.

Norm was inside the inside the business. He had a word of wisdom in regard to *any* good piece of music, especially popular songs:

“The song has *got* to have a different, new bass-line.”

Who am I to ever question Norman? I cannot say enough about the positive influence he had on me and New York City in general. I especially thank the organist Mollie Nichols for introducing me to and arranging the playing of new music written mostly by me.

So said: the orchestration was all Norm, and the orchestration of our version of Psalm 113 squeaked in the morning service with Bach, Vaughn Williams and others I have no right to name drop. Norm helped fit our hymn in the genre of modern classical. I have total respect for the rock n roll night services and the amplifiers and drums and keyboard samples – anything that flies your plane – but not at a Sunday morning 10:30 Episcopal service – for my taste.

What do you think of this song?

 

Thanks!

Genesis’ Most Passionate Song – The Domino Suite, part One

music by Banks/Collins/Rutherford
Genesis- In The Glow -Of-The-Night, pt 1

Never on a Genesis album is Phl Collins phrasing as string as Domino Part One.
Specifically, Genesis goes full existential. After a let down from a lover, Phil sings in resilience despite pain:

Here in the glow of the night
do you *know what you have done*?!
do you *see what you’ve begun+?
could it be
the we will never be
together again?

Harry Chapin, Suzanne Vega and other people’s pain as revealed in speed

The speed of Vega’s Luka unusually peppy for someone is actually empathetically hurting. The song reminds me of someone telling a story where the aphorism “anyone else’s pain is easy to bear” come to mind.

By contrast, Chapin is almost too sincere.
