Take-Me-To-Paradise-Reduxe

Back in the early days of Kid Conch (2012), I started recording a track that would end up launching my foray into the singer/songwriter world. It started out as a groove inspired by a particular classic hit which I can’t recall now, and ended up being 60 tracks of vocal samples and instruments from around the world, plus sound effects like boat horns, fireworks, etc. I knew very little about high-quality music production when I started. I was also not a very good singer. It took me something like 250 hours to track and mix. I love the song, and now that I’m using professional producers to help me get broadcast quality I decided to rerecord it. I thought it was a good task for my friend Sven-Eric Seaholm at Kitch and Sync Productions in San Diego, since he’s known for his groovy, retro style. Since I no longer have the production files for the original song (which I lost in a hard drive crash), I had to spend hours digging through sample libraries to find some of the sounds and samples that were used on the original. Long story short, we got it down to about 30 tracks. Here she is. I hope you enjoy!

Take Me To Paradise
© 2013, Rick Schettino

Lazing in the sun on a summer day
Gazing up at a clear a clear blue sky
Floating on the water out on the bay
It’s the fourth of July
I can see your love light shine
I know you love me deep inside

We’ll take our time and take it slow
Dancing to the radio
On a full moon high tide
I see the sunshine in your eyes
And I want you take me to paradise

Making love under summer skies
Makes me feel the highest highs
Baby do it to me one more time
It makes me feel so alive
You make my sex light shine
I know you love me deep inside

We’ll take our time and take it slow
Drinkin’ wine and dancin’ slow
Making love up topside
I see the sunlight in your eyes
And I want you to take me to paradise

We can make a wish on a falling star
In a cove on a star filled night
I see ‘em sparkle in your velvet eyes
Makes me light up like a firefly
Like a fire that burns inside
Your love keeps me warm at night

Shining like a beam of light
On an ultra violet night
Under a star-spangled sky
I can see the fireworks in your eyes
And I want you to take me to paradise
I wanna see the sunrise in your eyes
And I want you to take me to paradise
I wanna see the sunshine in your eyes
And I want you to take me to paradise
Wanna see your love shine
