SD350 - Someone Could Lose A Heart Tonight

SD350 Someone Could Lose A Heart Tonight

 

Another tip of the hat to the late Eddie Rabbitt, this country shuffle was written by the songwriting team of David Malloy, Eddie Rabbitt and Even Stevens and released in 1981. The songs starts with some spooky background vocals, and the lyrics imply that “love” is sneaking around in the dark attempting to steal someone’s heart. As always, Mike Haworth’s spot-on vocals enrich the tune while arranger, keyboardist and producer Pat Carnathan sings the lead. Jim “Jimmy Mac” MacDonald’s guitar work is, as usual, amazing, but it’s his engineering work that makes this new Shakedown tune truly remarkable.

SD349 - I Think About You

SD349 I Think About You

 

This 1996 single by country artist Collin Raye peaked at #3 on the Billboard List of Hot Country Songs. Written by Don Schlitz, Steve Seskin and Julian Williams, the singer is reminded of his young daughter any time he sees a woman being treated with disrespect. It’s a powerful song; anyone who’s raised a daughter can easily relate to the message. The singing call was arranged and the MIDI instruments played by producer Pat Carnathan, who also sang the lead vocal. Mike Haworth lent his extensive vocal talents to the backup vocals. The amazing Jim “Jimmy Mac” MacDonald not only played all the guitar parts, but he engineered and mixed the song as well.

From the 2003 Disney animated feature, Brother Bear, comes this happy song written and performed by Phil Collins. Though never released as a single, the song is featured prominently in the movie as the bear cub Koda joyfully sings about going to new places, meeting new friends, and sleeping under the stars. While the voice actor for Koda, Jeremy Suarez, sings the tune initially, it’s also sung by Phil Collins later on in the film. Pat Carnathan played the keyboard parts on this singing call and Jim MacDonald performed some truly amazing guitar work. During the closer, Mike Haworth plays banjo. The always-wonderful Hunter Keller sang the lead for us on this tune.

SD346 - Pink Cadillac

SD346 Pink Cadillac

 

Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 classic was released as the B-side of the “Dancing in the Dark” record. Though it stayed on the charts for 14 weeks and peaked at #27, the song is a staple of The Boss’ concerts and one of the most frequently requested tunes. This singing call is based on the cover by the band Southern Pacific and it combines the straight-ahead rock of the original with a little bit of southern rock. Pat Carnathan arranged the tune and lent his keyboard skills while Jim MacDonald played several guitar parts and Ty Barnes played the drums. The singing call comes with a music track as well as a second track featuring amazing backup vocals by Mike Haworth, Shauna Kaaria and Vic Kaaria.
