Take My Heart Away – Source Cue/Song [score/song] (2002)


A young film director asked me to write a country song for her upcoming film, to be sung by the main character on camera. Of course, I just had to jazz up the chords a bit. Then, producer Philip Howard added his soulful touch, including some gospel organ to the bridge, and wallah! We loved the song! The director, however, listened once and just about ran out of the meeting, saying thanks but no thanks on the way! That’s when I learned I’m not really a country writer.


Produced by Philip Howard. All instruments performed by: P.Howard, except Guitar solo by: unnamed; vocals: S.Zito
