Silk Road – Part 4: On My Way To You

This is Part 4 of a series of blog articles on my new forthcoming CD, “SILK ROAD – Inspirational Journeys Across Planet Earth.”  SILK ROAD will be released early in December 2012.  Just a few more weeks!  Click to read Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

==========================

“On My Way To You” is one of those classic songs in life.  It’s universal and yet it’s so particular.  I imagine that anyone who chances to hear the song will immediately connect to it with a story of their own.  Certainly that’s true for me.

It’s the second song on my soon-to-be-released CD, SILK ROAD.  Not only is it a classic song, but it’s a classic love song.  An internal journey, “On My Way To You” explores the emotional terrain of the heart.

The song was written by masters of the art of popular song.  Composed by the wonderful French musician, Michel Legrand (“Summer of 42”, “The Windmills of Your Mind“, “I Will Wait For You”), the lyrics were written by one of the most recorded lyric writing teams in pop music, Alan and Marilyn Bergman. (“I Believe In Love”, “The Windmills of Your Mind”, “The Way We Were”)  The most definitive recording of “On My Way To You” is by Barbara Streisand.  The pedigree just doesn’t get much better than that.

My producer, Peter Link, suggested the song for the SILK ROAD CD, because, again, it’s just one of those songs in life.  Wait till you hear Peter’s remarkable orchestration.  It’s rich, lush, and… new.  Peter created a sound experience with an intro that’s over a minute long:  It’s as if you are being awakened from a deep sleep into conscious awareness.  You’ll understand what I mean when you hear it!
