Insatiable

This song was meant as a warm up to the RPM Challenge 2011. The community on the site set up a voluntary pre-challenge that a few of us participated in. I needed to find my production legs after a couple of months of hiatus, so it was a perfect kick start and a good test for some new gear that I’d acquired.

The challenge was to illustrate different scenes for a fictitious movie. There was a Car Chase Scene, the Falling in Love Sequence, the End Credits, etc. I got – the Sex Scene. Whew! I decided to pass on any obvious naughty ideas, and instead I aimed for something, well… sensual, I guess. And this is what I came up with.

The inspiration for this tune was dreamy, sweeping ballads with alluring rhythms and evocative, picturesque lyrics. The first line of text came to me like a flash out of nowhere and immediately set the tone and the landscape. The rest was just fleshing it out and arranging the music. I quite like the way it turned out, even though I did it all myself on this one. The new guitar amp performed great, and together with my trusted old Ibanez Artist that was revived for the occasion, it managed to create a tone on the guitar solo that I absolutely love.

 

Insatiable

(Words & Music by Jana Persson)

Do you dream
Of shallow seas
Beckoning
Insatiable

Do you hear
Whispers in the wind
Beckoning
Insatiable

Do you feel
the tugging of a wave
Beckoning
Insatiable

We are the ocean
Drowning
We are the wind
Swirling
We are the universe
Endless

Beckoning
Insatiable
