Lyrics / Blue Lagoon
« Last post by Girlinside on Today at 07:51:53 AM »
This is about when my family used to go down to Poole to visit my mums brother and family in the mid 70s , they had a whirlpool at the bottom of their road you weren’t meant to go there /my cousin died aged 41 he was an alcoholic- he rang me several times asking about Buddhism and different religions and we talked about going to France to see the war graves ( my Dad was in the gliders on D/Day) but I was a bit worried because of his state of mind and we didn’t go not long after he was dead.
He was always so friendly so sociable , I remember going down there once for a break and getting drunk and throwing up on my aunties carpet and she was house proud and I was quite worried ,
At his funeral we found out from his first boss that he had to send him home at 16 because he was too drunk to work , I never knew any of this - my brother was the one always in trouble and they seemed a perfect family but it turns out he was nicking stuff from the family and then near the end of his life he was up on embezzlement but this doesn’t change anything just makes me very sad / I really Iiked him and here’s my tribute
I’d love someone to use the lyrics and do him justice


Blue lagoon

Blue lagoon , blue lagoon
reflecting the trees and the silvery moon
Why did you have to take him so soon ?

I used to lay on back looking up at the stars and the sky
I was eight years old and questioning why

Blue lagoon , blue lagoon
I couldn’t wait to go there , it had such an appeal
I have all these memories that I can still feel

cousin David isn’t with us anymore
He died just aged 41, I wish I could have done more

Blue lagoon , blue lagoon
reflecting the trees and the silvery moon
Why did you have to take him so soon?

looking up at the stars and questioning why ?
I still do it now and ask why he died
I remember him turning up at our door , dressed as a mod
it’s memories like this that make me argue with god

Blue lagoon , blue lagoon
reflecting the trees and the silvery moon
Why did you have to take him so soon?


free verse
Cousin Dave why did you have to die ?
why didn’t I listen when you silently cried ?
you were desperate searching for something more
then one day Auntie Sheila found you on the floor

Blue lagoon , blue lagoon
reflecting the trees and the silvery moon
Why did you have to take him so soon?


I don’t know want to be sad when I remember you
reflecting the trees and the silvery moon
 Why did you have to take him so soon?

@PaulyX - This is a great sonic journey, loved some of the sounds that Neil used, it's the sort of thing I could never do, a lot of work in there.

Production is as always top drawer.

@LostBoy - Leo this is really good, love the general vibe, lovely production, especially the acoustic Gtr and LVox.

No nits at all, just arrangement ideas...I like to dissipate any predictability in a song..

1:05 - Have the bass double timing
1:13 - Lead Gtr Fill over to the Right, maybe pick on of the hooks from the melody
1:56 - Lose the do do's (It's just a personal pet hate, it always sounds lazy to me..) grand piano could fill out nicely here.
2:08 - Blistering Big wide Rock God Gtr solo in here...

Lyrics sounded alright to me.

Hope it helps

@Boydie - I rememebr there was thread about this some while ago, and on the back of that I downloaded the free BeyerDynamic plugin that does the same, which I rarely use since my workflow is pretty established now, interesting anyway. I might look at NX one day, just out of curiosity.

Thanks

@cowparsleyman

Not the NX but most definitely the VRM box

I am devastated that this is discontinued, and doesn’t work on USB 3, so it is only a matter of time until I need to retire it - but it is just soooooooooo good for evaluating mixes as it can simulate a lot of different listening environments

The key to using it is not to expect the simulations to be “accurate” for the areas (eg a certain speaker in a pro studio, hifi system in a bedroom, tv speakers in a living room etc. but the different flavours definitely do give a good feel for how a mix will translate to different systems
