LEROY SANCHEZ - Til Death Do Us Part
- Published on Sep 13, 2019
- I can't tell you how happy it makes me to share this song and this little story with you. A few months back I went to NYC for a quick trip and Daphne Willis, Mike MacAllister and myself got together to write some tunes. We started talking about how we heard there was a certain movie that was looking for funky/groovy/ high energy/ positive songs so we spent the afternoon having a blast singing our hearts out and experimenting with some out of the box chords and progressions. The result was a pretty damn fun song and we felt like we definitely accomplished what we went there to do.
After hours of writing and recording we were ready to go home but as we were about to leave I noticed this beautiful baby grand piano siting there in the corner, so elegant, so majestic, calling my name. I already had my jacket and backpack on but something was telling me to sit on that piano, so I did. I started playing some chords and in a matter of seconds this chords started to melt into each other and the melodies started to flow out my mouth. I called Daphne (almost screaming) begging her to come as fast as she could because I didn’t want this idea to be forgotten, I knew there was something special about it. Thank god she was there because she’s unbelievable with words and she understood exactly what this song needed. This music sounded romantic, innocent and truthful, an incomplete beautiful ballad waiting to be molded. So we started to dig deep. What is that ultimate thing you would say to the love of your life, to that person you can’t be without, to the someone you’d spend your whole life with? And sure enough, the song started to write itself.
We spent about 10min working on the song and then we were told we had to leave because the studio was closing so we kept writing the song while in the subway on our way back home. We couldn’t stop, even if we tried, we would find ourselves singing these melodies in the search of words that would fit them perfectly. And so by the time we got home the song was pretty much done. Next day Mike recorded the chords on piano and made a beautiful arrangement to the song finishing “Til Death Do Us Part”.
And now the song got picked to be played at a new Hulu show called “Four Weddings and a Funeral”. It’s my absolute pleasure to play this song for you all and I really hope you enjoy this one!
