My friend and former icomp-er Marcello (Cacciamai) recently sent me some keyboard, guitar, and bass files along with some lyrics, and asked if I would like to collab like the old days at icomp.
I added a drum track, some lead guitar, sang, and did the mixing.
I think it turned out rather well… Hope you like it!
This is a 2019 remix of a tune called Decisions from the FreeEarCandy 2013 Coolection. Not much to this tune. Nevertheless, it came out real nice. Features Vocals, Keys and Guitar.
I heard some hateful music here. I made this in response.
Ballad with words in Japanese by Hikaru
A ballad on a love lost but yet unforgettable.
…And I am very bad at selecting a song category, so, sorry if I misled you.
This is a re-envisioning of a tune I uploaded some time ago to the old iComp site (and maybe MacJams? I don’t remember), but had a completely different sound, with vocals by Mark Sexton and a whole “Got To Get You Into My Life” horn section thing going with it.
Anyway, I decided to totally remake it. Here’s the remake.
A song in Swedish about someone leaving and someone waiting 🙂
Just a chill out song after a long day.
A song I wrote to celebrate meeting my wife and how life transpired after that. Patrick Poulou (Lafayette) provided the music. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing.
Sad love song with some hope twoards the end. Another remastered mp3 of a long lost file. I wrote this in the late 90’s as an uptempo almost bluegrass sounding thing.
Age discrimination is real in the workplace….A collab with my dear pal, Patrick Poulou (Lafayette) who passed away yesterday from pancreatic cancer. RIP dear one…
Copyright 2019. I actually heard the chorus for this one rolling around in my head one morning. A rough mix of what might be a cheesy pop song but still cool.
a cover (by permission) of michael2’s (macjams) original version of Everyone Relies on Time.
Love this version with FreeEarCandy
Jibes did the music improvisation. Thanks Jibes!
Collab with Kim and David on drums
Lyrics and melody: Sharon Shultz. Voice, instruments and production: Richard Schletty. DADDY lyrics: V1: It seems like yesterday that she came to me to say: Sit down I’ve got some news I want to tell you. We’re going to have a son. Yes, I’ll have your little one. Someone soon is going to call you Daddy. V2: I told her that’s a big surprise for a man on the rise. With so much to do, I told her sadly: Don’t do this to me. Some other time, you’ll see, Someone else will call us Mom and Daddy. V3: She said there’s other ways. There’s so many folks today who’d give everything they own to have a baby. I said just give it up, it wasn’t meant to be. No one has to know but you and me. V4: And so we set the date, the one that sealed your fate. I told myself it never would affect me. I said, “We’re not the only ones to do what we have done.” But she blamed herself and then she finally left me. CHORUS: Now I’m running down the hall trying to answer your call. I’ve had this dream a thousand times before. I cry out “Daddy’s here”, then I start to shake with fear. You’re on the other side and there’s no door! V5: Well, the years have slipped away, and it’s really strange to say all the simple things are what I miss so badly. Building blocks and tiny trains, and silly childhood games. But most of all someone to call me Daddy. V6: Today I’ve got it all – money, friends and fame. But all of this – I’d give it up so gladly. I’d give it all away if I could go back to that day… I’d save you, the one who would have called me Daddy. FINAL CHORUS: Now I’m running down the hall trying to answer your call. I’ve had this dream a thousand times before. I cry out “Daddy’s here”, then I start to shake with fear. You’re on the other side and there’s no door! I’m tryin’ to reach you, the one who would have called me Daddy! The little one, who would’ve called me Daddy I wish I could have heard you call me Daddy! © 2019, Sharon Shultz.

Did this song last year with great help from Dyl and Petra. Enjoy 🙂
