If     Besides (front) Besides (back)

 

written by Bleu, T.A.W.G.S. and Dwight Baker
produced by Bleu

…this is another song written with pro-writer-types at a song-retreat put on by Ed Roland..TAWGS again, and Dwight Baker (Kelly Clarkson/Bob Schneider)….theoretically it was also meant as a pitch-song, although, when i started working on the recording with Ducky it immediately felt like a "Bleu" song….again, i fully intended on putting this on FOUR, but i just couldn't find the right spot in the sequence for it…it iS kinda over-the-top Beatles- y (not that that's a bad thing obviously)..

written by Bleu and Roger Joseph Manning Jr.
produced by Bleu, Roger Joseph Manning Jr. and John O'Brien

….this is another funky Roger Joseph Manning Jr. collaboration - was originally meant to be a pitch song…it's got some of Roger's signature 70's synth-isms...Roger's pal John O'Brien (famous for his film work) finished up the production and mixed this jim-jam…i think (i hope) it's got a little bit of Kool and The Gang in there(?)…

written by Bleu and Eric Barao
produced by Bleu

…i wrote this song with a long-time friend and collaborator Eric Barao…i really loved this song of his "Sugar and Cream" (which will be on his upcoming release, which i did some producing/playing/mixing on) and basically, i suckered him into writing a new tune based on it….if i remember correctly, we recorded everything pretty quickly on the spot in his basement (?)..except the drums, which were done later by my drummer at the time Dylan Halacy (at Tony Goddess's studio in Central Square)…anyway..i always liked the energy of this thing and i think it's a very appropriate title for the last track of this b-sides record!...

     
     
 

written by Bleu, Troy "RADIO" Johnson and TAWGS
produced by Bleu

…this was actually written as a "pitch song" (for an American Idol winner if you can believe it)…my two collaborators TAWGS (Chantal Kreviazuk/Josh Groban) and Troy "RADIO" Johnson (Will Smith/JLo) are very successful pop writers, and we recorded the initial demo at Radio's church in Pasadena…the pipe organ and piano that you hear on this recording are the real deal, and the vocal was done right in the middle of the church too!…i asked my buddy Steve Lu to write a string arrangement to put on top of what we had, and he really made it freakin' ePic…i fully intended on putting this on FOUR, but i just couldn't find an appropriate spot for it…i'm glad this song is gettin' it's "due" here…
