What song do you have featured on 'THAT SUMMER by Various Artists'? What is the song about and how do you think it fits into a project about the summer? The song is called Savage Love. It is about a passionate relationship. Good or bad, it is very explosive, filled with love. As the saying goes, there is always a very fine line between love and hate. Its a fun song and I thought it would be great for a summer album.
We thought so too! It add something different to mix. Can you tell us a bit about how you wrote the song? I had some poetry and Lyrics I had for another project. The producer and co writer didn't use them. Once I received a Grant from FACTOR Canada I decided to use them with co - writer Mark Zubek.
Let's take a listen to the song on Youtube. This video is amazing!
Looking back, what was the best summer of your life and why?!
That's a hard one. I am going to say the summer of 08. I went to Italy that summer and met cousins I never met before. My step brother passed away in 2010 so it was a time when I had my family all together.
I understand. That sound like a summer to cherish.
