about

“All Of The Things” ~ Picture me a day, I’ll make it that way. My tip of the hat to a Paris long ago. Street musicians smoking Gitanes. Wearing berets. Accordions and guitars on the street corners. And a little old man doing a sketch of you. Even the stray dogs look at the sketch in wonder. Doubled up on the 12-string for this one. And added a 6-string decked out in Nashville tuning. There were many happy accidents during the sessions for this song. While listening back to the accordion tracks I decided they needed a bit more life. So I added a harmonica track and blended them. There’s a bit more breath there now. I needed a bit more research so I studied the few Maurice Chevalier songs I had in my library. Absolutely adore that man’s music. The carefree style and attitude. Okay. Then back to work. My original posting of this song did not have any backing vocals. Not a one. So a remix/fix of all the original tracks and then we added backing vocals. We managed to stay away from the oohs and aahs. These are the magical moments in the studio. The nights where you wish no one had to leave and you could keep recording all night. We didn’t get that far but we managed to take a good chunk of the evening. And, oh yeah, we drank a bottle of French red wine when we listened back to the final mix. All that was missing was the candle and the checkered tablecloth. And all the angels danced around the table. All for the things that you do … xoRJ

lyrics

I .. I have known .. you are golden, my girl
And I have been waiting for you
Oh I’ve seen .. I believe to my soul
Your magic will always come through

It’s all in the things that you do
Those little things that you do

I .. I lose count .. can’t keep track
Of all of the things that you do
Oh, I smile .. and I see in your eyes
That magic will always come through

Picture me a day .. I’ll make it that way
Paint me up a night .. I’ll make one you like

Oh - all for the things that you do
Those little things that you do
It’s all in the things that you do
Those little things that you do

I .. I stand here .. just in awe
And witness the things that you do
Every day .. I’m amazed and I know
Your magic will always come through

Yeah .. it’s all in the things that you do
Those little things that you do
It’s all in the things that you do
Those little things that you do

All of the things that you do -

It’s all in the things that you do
Those little things that you do
It’s all in the things that you do
Those little things that you do

.. all in the things that you do ..

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
