Mary Has a Plan for Tonight

I tried to embed but had no luck! :(

Lyrics:

Quote

Mary has a plan for tonight
She's gonna let out the demon inside
She will take you for the ride of you life
Better hold on tight
Oh Mary has a plan for tonight
You've got nowhere to run or hide
She will take you to the highest of highs
Better hold on tight

She's here for a good time
Not a long time
A party for one
She's a loaded gun
She's here for a good time
Not a long time
In the midnight sun
She's a loaded gun

Mary has a plan for tonight
Like an angel all dressed in white
You've waited for this moment all your life
Better hold on tight, Better hold on tight  
Oh Mary has a plan for tonight
You'll think everything's alright
But the love she gave could never be saved
For the morning light

She's here for a good time
Not a long time
A party for one
She's a loaded gun
She's here for a good time
Not a long time
In the midnight sun
She's a loaded gun
She's here for a good time
Not a long time
A party for one
She's a loaded gun
She's here for a good time
Not a long time
In the midnight sun
She's a loaded gun

I read the lyrics before I heard the song, I totally got the vibe wrong.  I was waiting for you to go up an octave with that beautiful voice of yours!.  Always so professional KLOON!

This sounds '80's plus very modern. Love that combo. When your vocal gets to the word "tight" in the lower register, the volume dips on it just a bit. But I can still hear it.

 

The second verse, the snare and all it's perfectly-crafted swoosh! is just as loud or louder than your vocals. But, I still get it.

 

Great tune, mellow vibe, nice break at the end, and a killer mix. Plus a great lead vocal and bgv. This is a winner.

 

cheers,

-Tom

I really liked this one - especially your lead vocal.  The mix sounds good with plenty of depth to it. Very cool way to end it - nicely done.

Thank you very much Douglas! Nice to get a comment on the ending as well. :)

The song has a really nice atmosphere to it.
I kept expecting something to fill in the pauses but you have a bit of a minimalist approach going in the song, which I think works well.

I wanted another clue to what Mary's plan was since there's some ominous stuff  going on, but I think you intended for the listener to make up a story for themselves.

Thank you very much Bjorn for listening and your kind words!

Yeah, thats pretty much my songwriting in a nutshell. I very seldom reveal the main plot i plain words. It's always up to the listener. Personally, i find that kind of songwriting more interesting.

Very nice! Top notch production. Really first class.

What is the effect on the vocals?  A subltle vocoder?  

I'm guessing that this is already out there as a single. So you can't go back to it, right?

No fx other than Waves Cla Vocals on the vocals.

Yes, it's already out but i welcome all feedback for future songs. :)

Hi Kloon, sorry to take so long to reply - work, work, work.

Around mark 0:48 & 1:24 for example it sounds like there might be pitch correction going on - I know that these days a lot of singers pull off that sound in their delivery, so it may just be the way you're singing.  I don't mind it, but in moderation (like Cher 'Do you Believe in Love'....OK probably not the comparison you were looking for ;) )

I love the harmonies around 3:40

My one crit is that I would have loved to have heard the song take off in another direction.  It feels like it's building up to something big, but never quite kicks off.  A soaring key change? A tempo shift?

It's a solid song though - sounds like it could be on a soundtrack.

Great job!
