Recording information by MsTakeGOLD

Easing into holiday songs... The weird sounds at the end were me experimenting with a shaker to see if I could add rain noises. Umm... no.

Some wiki on the song: "The Sweetest Taboo" is the lead single from Sade's second studio album, Promise out of 1985. The song did better in the U.S. than in Britain where the part-Nigerian one-named singer grew up. It reached #3 in U.S. Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart.

I hope you do well in the contest.

Actually the rain stick sounded okay.

As you may recall, during a 1987 battle of the bands at 1129, Tao Jones, a Sade sound alike band, defeated a scrappy little four piece with a woman singer, a bespectacled bass player who had a Peavy T40 that was extremely similar to the one currently in my closet, and great set of roots-oriented rock songs . A travesty of justice that echoes through the decades. In shame, the club closed and became a document museum.

Experimenting with a shaker to add some rain noises?

Well, I usually use a shaker to add some salt or pepper ... but I digress ...

Hey, speaking of salt and pepper, this was a spicy performance! Loved your style and your singing was the sweetest (although not taboo for me)! ;-D

Hey, I snagged comments by a medical writer by profession and a jack of all trades by obsession. Both smart, both funny, both two of my favorite people here on Snap. Thanks guys for backtracking to pick up on this one.

Dang volume slider wouldn't adjust. Hey Dan, I researched the problem and dumped my cookies without having to call you and ask you what they were and where to find them. Ha! A powerful woman I am. Now peel me a cookie.

Hey Dan, sorry about Tao Jones, but maybe they got some credit for that witty band name.

As to the contest, I'm hoping they'll give ME credit for picking something difficult.

Taboos add spice! Add them to a cookie and you get what girls are made of!

Dr Dannyo says it's a good Rainstick....IT's NOT TAboo~~
