Kiss From a Rose

I'm curious about whether the vocal timing was edited by a sampler or other means or did seal write the song with the vocal timing placement as it is?

Any info about the performance of the vocal, how many times did he record it, how many performances comp'ed etc

I read it was written as a tribute to Crosby Stills and Nash --was it?

thanks

Hey Renie,

Are you asking if he wrote it as a waltz?

I believe so.


Now in a sampler?


I would say more like Studio Vision or the earlier ProTools/sound tools.


Trevor Horn has been using it since its inception.


He is famous for editing songs to death.


I think that's how he got his nickname is "The Knife". heh

Whatever he did on 90125, it sure worked. I think it set the standard for production.

I didn't mean that exactly Thrill > the placing/timing of the vocals just is genius to my ears. Thanks for bringing my attention to it> I love this track, it has spurred a eureka moment/stage for me too.

Seal, to me, has always had a great vocal "push and pull" around the groove. I also think that this last record is a great example throughout of that argument, as well as possibly being one of my favorite mixed records of all time. It "breathes" beautifully. Trevor Horn, however quirky and "knife-like," has figured it out. It's fun to check out Seal, then The Art Of Noise, then Tatu, etc..... finding his similarities and differences from record to record is fascinating! I continue to find new parts on every listen!
