MY FIRST TOP 40 SONG - Diana Ross

Ms. Ross has been in the news lately with a Grammy nod and a celebration of Motown's 60th anniversary.

My co-writer, Marc Jordan and I wanted to break every rule in the book when we created the demo that led to this recording.

Make it sound like a master. We recorded it in a pro studio with a hot engineer.

No Hi-Hat in the drum kit.

Play the bass part as if it is sequenced and quantized....but it wasn't.

Allow Marc's poetic lyrics to shine.


Here's a live version with Diana Ross in Central Park, New York.
