I always love to go into the studio and record music. I especially like to see something new unfold. I hand over some words on a piece of paper and hum a melody to my very gifted arranger Alwyn Erub and puff like magic the music comes alive. On this song engineer Randy Sugata decided to try out his new voice machine as the back-up voices. I sang the musical line and this machine matches and harmonizes with you (well sort of.) Not sure this was the best way to do this, but the lead voice is all mine and the words are for those of you who are in love. “You are the one I love. You are the one I need. We go together like the river to the sea. Just know forever its you and me.”
Waimea Bay has a waterfall you hike back into and its really cold, but amazingly awesome to swim under. The falls is on a mountain and the river flows downstream all the way to the Pacific Ocean to North Shore where the fresh river water meets the huge pounding ocean sea water (this is where some of the greatest surfing happings in Oahu.) The fresh and salt water mix and there is no separating them after they have found each other.
The river must flow to the sea, like those in love must be together. Its just the way of love isn’t it? aw……Isn’t it romantic! Happy Valentines to all.
