from ECCENTRIC AUDIO
written by David Foster & Carole Bayer Sager

From time to time, we discover interesting renditions of songs from the amazing David Foster songbook. This time it’s a beguiling dance cover of “It’s The Falling In Love” by UK modern funk duo Smoove & Turrell. The song was co-written in the late seventies by Foster and Carole Bayer Sager. “It’s The Falling In Love” was recorded by Michael Jackson for his mega-seller album “Off The Wall” and by other famous artists like Dionne Warwick and Dee Dee Bridgewater. Smoove & Turrell included their take of “It’s The Falling In Love” on their 2011 sophomore cd “Eccentric Audio.”

D.J. and music-maker Jonathan Scott Watson, aka Smoove, along with singer/songwriter John Turrell gave a delicious, modern spin to this classic pop tune and brought it into musical territories not too far from Daft Punk’s giant hit album “Random Access Memories.” Turrell’s soulful vocal performance is right on target and the upbeat arrangement is absolutely irresistible which makes this a perfect party tune. The whole “Eccentric Audio” cd is extremely interesting with a great blend of funk, soul and disco gems including “Wasted Man,” “In Deep,” “Hard Work” and “Don’t Let It Go To Your Head.” Turrell’s voice echoes other UK singers like Paul Weller and Peter Cox of Go West and really shines on the entire recording. This cd is highly recommended if you’re looking for new music with some “old school” influences.

Recently, Smoove & Turrell released “Broken Toys,” their new cd. “Broken Toys” is another fantastic showcase of the duo’s superior talent and is chock-full of good music.

Lyrics

1st Verse
You’re Not Like Anybody I Ever Knew
But That Don’t Mean That I Don’t Know Where We Are
And Though I Find Myself Attracted To You
This Time I’m Trying Not To Go Too Far, Cause

Bridge
No Matter How It Starts It Ends The Same
Someone’s Always Doing Someone More
Trading In The Passion For That Taste Of Pain
It’s Only Gonna Happen Again

Chorus
It’s The Fallin’ In Love That’s Makin’ Me High
It’s The Being In Love That Makes Me Cry Cry Cry
It’s The Fallin’ In Love That’s Makin’ Me High
It’s The Being In Love That Makes Me Cry Cry Cry
All Night… All Night

2nd Verse
And Though I’m Trying Not To Look In Your Eyes
Each Time I Do They Kind Of Burn Right Through Me
Don’t Want To Lay Down In A Bed Full Of Lies
And Yet My Heart Is Saying Come And Do Me

Bridge
Now We’re Just A Web Of Mystery
A Possibility Of More To Come
I’d Rather Leave The Fantasy Of What Might Be
But Here I Go Falling Again

Chorus
It’s The Fallin’ In Love That’s Makin’ Me High
It’s The Being In Love That Makes Me Cry Cry Cry
It’s The Fallin’ In Love That’s Makin’ Me High
It’s The Being In Love That Makes Me Cry Cry Cry
It’s The Fallin’ In Love That’s Makin’ Me High
It’s The Being In Love That Makes Me Cry Cry Cry
It’s The Fallin’ In Love That’s Makin’ Me High
It’s The Being In Love That Makes Me Cry Cry Cry
Over You… Over You (All Night)

Chorus
It’s The Fallin’ In Love That’s Makin’ Me High
It’s The Being In Love That Makes Me Cry Cry Cry
It’s The Fallin’ In Love That’s Makin’ Me High
It’s The Being In Love That Makes Me Cry Cry Cry
All Night… All Night
