Leave You Blue is a song that Pia and I wrote last year, with Mel contributing some lyrics. It is a funny little song about a relationship that has gone sour, partly set to a standard 1950's chord sequence that has been used in lots of soppy songs.
The lead vocals are obviously mine. They're meant to be overly passionate and I think I succeeded. The distortion is a due to my tube pre-amp being overdriven - an accident that could have been corrected via a quick re-take. However, we liked it, so we kept it - I figure it sounds like a bad singer in an RSL club who is trying too hard. The Barry White style comments in the intro and solo are some of my usual goofing around while recording, but we decided that they fit, so we kept them. So, in summary, the lead vocals are mostly accidental! :-)
