Thanks for posting this. Hmmm... I have to say, I'm not wildly impressed. It sounds like a generalised orchestral wash has been laid over it. Christine's piano was much more specific and appropriate.

Well, its a bit muchthe understated piano made fine accompaniment to her plaintive vocal. Here, the strings threaten to overwhelm everything.

The arrangement makes about as much sense as the album cover.

But maybe we are all like that radio announcer who couldn't make sense of GYOW the first time he heard it. Maybe the hidden magic of this arrangement will reveal itself to us in time.

Go with your gut. That arrangement is square peg and round hole. No puns intended. She's gone senile.

Is it too late to cancel my Amazon order Like her movie soundtrack song she did not include on this album. This is A Fine Mess

I am glad its not just me. It seems the music does not fit with the vocal and almost like they just found a random orchestra track and put her vocal over it. If you took away her singing you would never know it was Songbird. And the orchestra track itself is not that great either.
Oh well. I sill have Buckingham McVie

It's insulting to the masterpiece that Songbird is.

Now what if they'd done a Songbird/Oh Daddy mashup?

Okay, so heres as good a place as any to confess that I am obsessed with Slow Down. When I first heard it I thought catchy, decent soundtrack song. But it has gotten under my skin and I cant stop playing it. Admitting this is the first step towards recovery.

Oh and yes, the orchestral Songbird needs to crumble and die.

I would love an orchestra version of Oh Daddy as long as the music is the score of Oh Daddy. I am not sure it would great to Beethoven #5

Hi my name is John, and I'm a SlowDownaholic, too.
