Hello Everyone ,

 It has recently been decided by the record company that an instrumental piece that
I first composed around 2006 and then started writing lyrics for shortly thereafter has been
chosen as a single. The song, which a lot of you are aware of already, is Instant Love.
 
Shortly before the Titanic Requiem (as my father and I would work on different genres together and if we both decided ...to write on a piece we both liked we just went
with the flow) I played him the song. He sang some demo vocals to it and the rest is history.
We then wrote the lyrics together and I finally completed the backing, orchestrationand overall production when I finished production works on 50 St Catherine's drive at Red Bus
Studios in March of this year.
It was then mixed at Metropolis and will be released later this year.

 Instant Love was originally going to be a club piece and now it is the mainstream piece
it deserves to be (yet the lines are indeed blurred these days and there's nothing wrong
with that) but can still touch the club industry as there is a dance mix for future post-release.
The single will be the original version...
With my father and I singing a verse each and the chorus together.
My father laid down some amazing harmonics as well.
There was another version with just myself singing, when my father wanted to feature
 Instant Love on 50 St Catherine's Drive with me on the vocals. There was also the demo
 version from when we first started developing the song with just my father singing the lyrics,
 but even though it is not finished studio quality, if you have managed to get hold of it then
 kudos to you as it will of course be a "digital collectors item").
In the end we decided then that the original cannot be beat and I still have the
same sentiments.
It truly is touching in my opinion and I hope you all enjoy the final outcome.

 Love and best wishes to you and yours as always,
Whoever you may be,
Sincerely
RJ xx

THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way. We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.

MAURICE GIBB: Always with experimentation in mind, this was a fun time. The memories of this session will always be remembered. I loved the tuba and reverse cymbal effect.

“New York Mining Disaster 1941 (Have You Seen My Wife, Mr. Jones)”
Written by Barry and Robin Gibb (1967)
Performed by Bee Gees


The MusicWhen the Bee Gees debut US single was released in April 1967, a lot of people thought it was The Beatles masquerading as another band. Even the name Bee Gees was read as code for “Beatles Group.” But within a year, brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb established themselves not only as hit makers in their own right, but as chart rivals to the Fabs. “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” the first of thirty-some hits, is one of those rare pop songs in which the title never appears in the lyrics. Most people still refer to it by its subtitle “Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones.” Inspired by the Aberfan mining disas…
