Background[ edit ] The song was inspired by an actual falling star that Shannon Rubicam had seen at one of Whitney Houston 's concerts at the Greek Theatre. Initially, the duo did not consider recording it, and instead submitted the song to Clive Davis hoping he would decide to use it on Houston's next album.
George and I were in attendance at a Whitney Houston concert in Los Angeles, held at the Greek Theater, a gorgeous outdoor, open sky venue.
We knew she would sing our song 'How Will I Know' sometime during her set and we were very excited to be there. It was an electric moment, everybody was on their feet; as she finished and the audience was applauding, I happened to look up in the sky just as a star rocketed across the great arc of darkness.
Always equipped for such random events, I pulled out my little notebook and pen, jotting down the words that came to mind: As it turned out this was good for us, allowing us to record it for our 'Reel Life' CD that was produced by the wonderful Arif Mardin.
That's the way it happened! Eighties pop music arrangements tended toward heavy vocal layering, punchy drums, and soaring choruses. It was a good fit for us because we love making up harmony clusters and recording layers of background vocals. We do also love a more spare sound, Boy meets girl rugby song had become accustomed to the larger aural effect of multiple tracks of just about everything!
Regarding formulas, there were general guidelines for song formatting, but in the end you follow the song story arc, the emotional trajectory, the musical dynamics, and wind up where you do.
The aim is to write a musically and emotionally satisfying song that hopefully touches others as it presumably touched the writers. That is true resonance, and what makes a song of any genre POPular. I like how you put that last bit, Shannon In the end, I think the writer has a piece of themself invested, and that usually makes for the better songs.
But he is the main musician of the two of us, with far greater technical knowledge and instrumental ability. It is our conversation back and forth that guides us to a better outcome.
I really love the imagining and playing with the story within the lyric, and then finding the instruments to best support all tha Shannon: The idea behind the lyrics?
Those experiences often leave a place marker in our hearts, which we refer to at various other times in our lives for understanding, empathy, and other more beneficial aspects; or conversely as a reason for setting up barriers to avoid pain.
Did bands need at least one sax solo a song back then? Must have been so; sax solos proliferated like bunnies! Andy Snitzer, who went on to become a famous jazz artist, touring with the Stones, yes he played brilliantly! A solo is an opportunity within a song to make a brief departure from the main song, to take a little flight, and then return to the song via the chorus.
Before we moved to LA and began writing for a publishing company, I think our style of songwriting was more homegrown, maybe even more intimate and personal in a way; but in considering, among other things, how to appeal to a singer who is not you the writer, there is the need to inhabit the hearts of others and by doing so broaden your own boundaries.
At least then the target is a bit larger. In addition the attitude of the eighties was a snappy, flashy and energetic, drug-fueled going-big kind of era not that we were all that drug-fueled, but the times reflected the sound and vice versa. Sax and guitar solos were one aspect.
I wore suits with big shoulder pads too What do you hear after all these years, George? Funny, haven't been asked that one before. In the composition I hear Joni Mitchell affecting us in the melody writing, and even the storytelling a bit.
Were I to play it on piano without the trappings of synth and drums, you might hear it. It was long past any mealtime and we were starving, so George called information, got the name of a Chinese restaurant, placed an order and had them meet him at the baggage claim curb with our food, and borrowed the airline boardroom for a bit of an impromptu party.
That was some fun. And once while traveling in Germany, we'd lost track of time during an airport layover.For your search query Boy Meets Girl Full Album MP3 we have found songs matching your query but showing only top 10 results.
