Love Alone

The collaboration between Colin Gordon-Farleigh and me has slowed to a trickle, with our output dwindling to only 16 songs since the start of the year. The latest was finished this morning. In this demo of “Love Alone” I took a straight up ballad approach, but I think what’s really going to put this one over the top is an arrangement in the long lineage of ballad/disco hits like Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” Donna Summer’s “Last Dance,” and Cher’s “Believe.” Each of these has at its core, a great melody, often in a minor key. Things usually start off slowly, then the song becomes a double-time dancing frenzy of grief release. Nowadays, that great pop disco tradition has developed into techno style ballads, although good examples escape me at the moment.

For now you’ll have to satisfy yourself with the down tempo ballad version (MP3, PDF). But if you want to create a bangin’ remix, just let me know and I’ll get you all the files you need.
