Joules Production, Kings Road, Chelsea London created this track. Highly Recommended! Please visit www.joulesproductions.co.uk

This is an edited electronica mix by Julian Chown of a longer song which you can listen to and download by visiting Love or Freedom, the featured collection on this site.

Joules invited me to an impromptu session when Irish singer-songwriter Craig Walker was passing through London and we wrote this track and lyrics together in the studio, on the fly. We had been talking about Paris, which we both had great poignant wintry memories of, and this narrative duet arose out of the conversation. I haven't recorded very many male-female co-leads, but if they could all be like this I would do many more. I think our sounds are really well matched and Joules' minimal piano part is perfectly evocative.

lyrics

From the Notre Dame
To the Seine
From the Notre Dame
In the rain
You said you'd be there
By the station
And I hung around
For far too long

And the dead bells sound
Like the sound of the rain
And I keep running away

Paris in the snow makes me feel
Alive again
Alive again

To the Gare du Nord
For a train
To the Gare du Nord
Leave again

Said you'd be there
At the station
But you disappeared
Like a song

And the dead bells sound
Like the sound of the train
And I keep running away

Paris in the snow makes me feel
Alive again
Alive again

And Paris in the snow
Is the greatest feeling I know
Paris in the winter
Brings me back to you

My eyes had fingers
That touched your face
That my eyes had fingers
To touch your grace

Minutes pass, hopes fade
Never thought I'd feel this way
After only a moment
Or two

Paris in the snow makes me feel
Alive again

After only a moment
Or two

about

Diana Rosalind New Orleans, Louisiana

After being discovered by Bobby McFerrin as a young vocal improviser in San Francisco, I spent some years writing and performing with ensembles that remain important in the history of Bay Area arts, then did time tangling with the music biz in LA & NYC, followed by a decade in Europe, recording all the while, before coming "home" to NOLA. This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
