I am NOT dead!! Of all the songs, this one cannot be ignored. It is by by far my favorite Adam song ever.
I was really hesitant to want Adam to sing with anyone, even the divas, cause I just thought anything less than 100% Adam would be a waste. I was wrong. I love Sam in this. And I would never have put their voices together in a song. This is why I trust Adam so much. Genius!
Any one hear a variation to Shady on the Larry Flick and Nile Rogers clips? I like the way he sings the "Take me underground...." part. Not sure how to describe the difference, just smooth, sultry and raw to my ears. I also detected some additional lyrics in the NR sessions, something about calling the cops!. Damn this song could have been longer. Maybe an extended most prominent Nile rift. I am not criticizing, I love this track, is it bad to want even more of a good thing? I think this song is groundbreaking in the current pop field. It really is different.
The chord sheet would have been better to bring over, that's just me trying to Nile out the chord sheet (badly)!
Where is the cord sheet, Mr.? ;D I'll bring it over when I find it, I swear! Cross my heart and hope to die
The album’s only guest features both appear on the funk/disco inspired “Shady”. Nile Rodgers and Sam Sparro assist Lambert on the psychedelic track which hypnotizes listeners with the very first note. There seems to be many drug references buried throughout, Lambert even states he isn’t broken but still needs a “fix”. The track is a great addition, the mixture of different vocals works and it takes me back to the late 80s.
Shady – This is another one of the tracks we heard back in January, and it’s as amazing as I remember. This one is a collaboration with Sam Sparro and Nile Rogers and you can hear their funk influence right out of the gate. The lyrics are delightfully suggestive and the bass line swells and grinds right along and leads into a stellar chorus. Total funk-meets-electro.
Track three: “Shady” finds Adam once again channelling the King of Pop with the help of Aussie singer/songwriter Sam Sparro and American guitarist Nile Rodgers. Funky and reminiscent of songs like “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder, this is a definite contender for single in my eyes, especially if radio does what it should and starts to move away from the barrage of David Guetta sound-alikes. Adam’s vocals are soulful and on point as he croons: “No I ain’t broken but I need a fix” and powerful as he goes on to snarl “Turn it up, Turn it wayyyyyy up, don’t stop the beat!” In case you weren’t paying attention, this track is FIRE!
