I have also been recording the second track for my year long project ‘The Duvet Collection’. So here it is, the second track… You’re the One that I want. Yes, that song from the musical Grease! I always find songs from musicals really interesting because they are often written with such a specific story in mind, it then becomes interesting to me to think about the story of a song in a different context. I thought this song would be a lovely one to put out for Valentine’s Day too. By changing the original style of the song, making it a bit more downbeat and singing it from a man’s perspective I have tried to put my own stamp it. The interpretation of the song by Angus and Julia Stone was an influence on me and so was the version by Lofang. I have had alot fun recording this track and this might be the first time you have heard me playing my telecaster electric. My wife added a lovely piano piano line and I also put a little glockenspiel part on the song. You can download it for free via BANDCAMP.
