Listening on the radio to old stuff you didn’t hear for years, I fell off my chair with Smooth Criminal (Michael Jackson). Since, I can’t put it out of my mind.
I remember an interview (maybe exaggerated) with Quincy Jones, who produced “Bad”, who said that the team wrote, recorded and produced forty (40) songs, to choose finally 10 of them, the “ten best”, right?
I should find the interview to check numbers, right? But like they say in this John Ford’s movie, let’s print the legend.
That’s a tool for workers. An unusual one maybe :
“If you need great stuff, build 4 times more then pick the quarter best”
(hmm is this even English?)
An exhausting/expensive tool, right?
Have a great sunday!
Listen loud, extract : the bass (sound and holed line), the snare drum games, the voice production, the building in “double stereo stairs” (synth-strings), the up modulation for the chorus.
Annie, are you ok
Will you tell us that you’re ok
There’s a sign at the window
