Serious in Love

I can't help but prefer the reggae version of Serious in Love from last week's webcast to the one from this week's. It had more energy and was more fun - but I realize it probably wouldn't fit on the record very well that way. It's strange how Neil & company glossed over this song last night. One take and that was it - I guess they're planning on using rehearsal takes?

I'm in complete agreement with you, Proudpom.  I hope the ska/reggae version from Webcast 3 sees the light of day in some form. 

Ah make

Maybe my favorite song on Afterglow, but I doubt he'll ever play it live. One can hope!!!

Think you might be thinking of I Am In Love, recorded during the Together Alone sessions.

Lol, I was reacting to what I now see is Above The Kitchen's tag line....doofus status achieved!

Ah, makes sense. Honestly, these "taglines" or "signatures" or whatever they're called have always annoyed the hell out of me. Completely unnecessary and seem to only exist to have people accidentally waste their time reading them.

Too many times I've read them, only to wonder why someone has posted random lyrics out of context, before finally realising. They're not even different fonts, colours or sizes, let alone separated from the main body of text.

I usually post via my phone now so I was unaware of the way the signature looked online.   But no worries, babyshots, I achieved doofus status many moons ago.  Glad to have your fine company.   You Can Touch is a shared love!

 I can understand why one can be confused by tag lines now.  The old website host for this forum showed a clear differentiation between the message and the signature/tagline.  Now, with the new host, it's just seems to blend into the main message.  Tinkering may be necessary.  

My signature was purposeful.  I quite liked putting a spotlight on the lyrics of You Can Touch, a gem of a song that never received its day in the sun.  If I can make it stand out and separate itself from postings, I will continue to shine some light on You Can Touch.

I think this song maybe the dark horse of the record.

I like that Neil is sharing but not sharing everything, the post production work can be transformative as we saw with Second Nature and I think its good that with all this exposure he can still surprise and impress with the finished release.

Serious in love has been given the least exposure so I feel it will be a great surprise.  I too loved the energy of the reggae version but I think the final version may be cast in the mould of Turn it Around, an excellent song  that never got the exposure it deserved in the Intriguer era.

 What do you think can you hear elements of Turn it Around in the piano?

According to iTunes today, Serious in Love is no longer slated for Out of Silence. I'm not surprised.  It felt abandoned during webcast 4, with just a cursory take.  Stylistically, the song is an outlier, better suited for another project.  Hopefully, the song will be heard again, and with Still Got It, another album has some strong material.  Until then, we have the Ska version from Webcast 3 to enjoy.

That's a shame.  Serious In Love is one of my favorites.  I will probably add the Webcast 3 version to my playlist of the album.
