David Campbell Reveals 'Good Lovin'' Tracklisting!
out why David Campbell chose the 12 songs that are on his forthcoming
album 'Good Lovin'' - in stores November 15.
'GOOD LOVIN' TRACK BY TRACK
I was surfing online late one night and I came across Len Barry's
"1-2-3". When I heard that song and the drum and the power of that song
and I thought, 'right that's the sound for the whole album'. Every
track came in really quickly after that. It sort of formed the whole
album and that's why we lead out with it.
A band like the Young Rascals took what the English were doing with
the British Invasion and made it their own. There was a musical
competition between bands in that era to make the richest, almost
semi-symphonic pop rock records. I find that really exciting. There's
this epic scope in it, but it's still really tight and really dancy.
"You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling"
Jimmy really wanted to sing this song. He really built the dynamics
in this brilliantly. I think he barely broke a larynx doing it. The
session took maximum 45 minutes. Once we got the song up we did a few
ideas together and that was it. I think the third take was the one we
"Keep On Runnin'"
I love this song so much. I wanted to get more rockier stuff in
there. It's one of those songs you can't really deny it. It's like this
fantastic '60s freight train coming at you and you just let it run over
you. It's a pleasure. When I hear Cold Chisel, I hear that high
blue-eyed soul Stevie Winwood sound. Listen to "Choir Girl" - it's that
high piercing sound.
"You Made Me So Very Happy"
This is a really tough song. When Chong and I were planning the
record we would sit there with our laptops and go through the songs and
look around and see if there's something we've forgotten ad we found
two songs: "How Can I Be Sure?" and "You Made Me So Very Happy". It's
one of those songs again it's an ulifting love song. There's nothing
depressing about love on this album, it's all very uplifting it feels
"How Can I Be Sure?"
We went all '60s on this one. We theoretically dropped studio acid
and did crazy things on this. We didn't really drop drugs, we just
played around with drug sounds from that period. I love the lyric and
the great groove and the strings. Chong has done a great job on this
album and that track in particular.
This was an early contender for the album because of that whole Mod
sound and Georgie Fame. My grandmother - she gets talked about on every
album - she loved people like Georgie Fame so I always grew up with
this song. And I grew up with the Matt Bianco track from the '80s.
There's something really cool about it. It's tight. You don't get
tracks like that very often
"The Girl From New York City"
This came out of nowhere. We were already recording and Chong
mentioned Manhattan Transfer and "Boy From New York City" came into my
head. I had always wanted to do something doo wop and then I thought
about that song. We just changed the lyrics a little bit and Darren
Percival taught me how to put it all together. and doo wop me like
Bobby Mc Ferrin but not nearly as talented. Everything is me including
the production and the bass. There's one ultra low part at the very end
which is Mr Percival because I just can't sing that low. It was a like
a long nine-hour day of doing every part over and over.
"Jackie Wilson Says"
It's a little out of the period but I like the feel. I grew up with
the Dexy's Midnight Runners version. And then of course you get older
and hear Van. My piano player said I should do this, that it sounds
like something I would do live. It's a little out of the period but
this feels like it fits in with the rest of the album.
I love the song and I love Elvis. You can't do a collection of '60s
songs and not do Elvis. There' something about this song. It has a
really great groove . I remember the Fine Young Cannibals version too
and we've done an amalgam of all those versions and Elvis' live
"Tell It Like It Is"
You don't want to tackle Aaron Neville lightly. It was one of those
late night additions and this is one of those songs I heard as a kid.
We did it quickly and it was one of those songs that once Mahalia and
the Soul Mates got on it they just brought the whole song to life.
"Devil In A Blue Dress"
I found "Devil In A Blue Dress" in a collection somewhere and I'd
forgotten about it. But it was one of the tracks like "1-2-3" that I
thought had to go on the album. I love the gospel section. It's really
primal and I wanted something like that on the album. The song just
lets loose with gospel and '50s rock & roll. This track and Len
Barry shaped the album for me.
