|This is the old Burt
Bacharach/Shirelles tune from 1962 that a hundred people have covered, so make it one
more. Good Structure!
It started when I was a
staff guy at Omega Studios and became the "song a year tune" as a studio guy.
I heard "In My Room" by Danny Gatton and was mesmerized by that age old
deal - geetar playing the vocal parts.
It was back burnered for a while but came back to
life in 1996. Based loosely on the Smith's version from '69, I hacked out the rhythm
guitar parts in a C#m tuning that I don't remember and gave up.
Living with a click track hole for the middle 8 for
almost 3 years was pretty tough, and I never really knew what should go there.
In an hour or so of engineering I made the doo-dad which became the bridge. Pretty cool.
Sam with that heavy B3 busts loose with some
attitude and Shatungwa helps out with some scratching added just before mix time.
