(God Only Knows) You Make Me Feel by Kathleen Martin

Album Description

(I trust my Playlist title cf. isn't lost on everyone ("If 6 Was 3" formerly), otherwise the Grammar Puss in me would go with subjunctive, as in, "If 8 WERE 4." ;)  [See individual track notes and headphones please!] Included here are now four examples of my mix-mashing techniques. The
second and fourth tracks happened from the serendipity of hearing the mashed pieces within close enough time proximity for the earworms to meet and greet. Track #3 was a surprise birthday gift for my Finn-friend Hunaja, where I'm doing my own arrangement and performances of bits and pieces of the two mashed compositions. SOURCES: Don't Dust Up Our Love: Don't Renege on Our Love by Richard & Linda Thompson plus Dust by Parquet Courts Downton Files: X-Files theme by Mark Snow plus Downton Abbey theme by John Lunn. (God Only Knows) You Make Me Feel: God Only Knows by Brian Wilson & Tony Asher plus (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Carole King & Gerry Goffin. Rogue World: Rogue River Suite theme by François Tétaz plus the performance of Roland Orzabal's (Tears for Fears) Mad World by Gary Jules.



Track Info

July 1, 2014 (For the birthday of my husband and my best friend, JT Lindroos) "God Only Knows" by Wilson and Asher and "Natural Woman" by King & Goffin are two favorite songs of mine from any era and any genre. Aware I'm unworthy of covering either masterpiece on its own, I thought I could at least make a wholly new song and sound from mixing up my performance bits of both together.The first instrument part I recorded was the Finnish harp (kantele). Over the vocals and harp came bongos, and later I added the synth keyboard lines of piano, celesta, music box, cello, flute and French horn to fill out the arrangement. I've returned to the song structure of my original "Resolution #9" in using its "power of 3's" scheme here by repeating a section twice again before the bridge bits. In total there are three to start followed by a bridge, then three more sections followed by a second bridge and then winding down with a final group of three. The sections differ slightly within any triad by either adding or subtracting instrument lines within them.Credits: Arranged, performed, recorded and produced by Kathleen Martin. God Only Knows by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher. (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Carole King and Gerry Goffin.
