Nouvelle Vague In a Manner of Speaking

I LOVE the song “In a Manner of Speaking” by Nouvelle Vague! It’s just so beautiful and filled with musical power! You can hear the original song here. Which is why i spent a couple hours making my own music version of “In a Manner of Speaking”. I try to make it even more powerful. Let me know if I reached my objective or not.

I looked all over the internet for the instrumental and a cappella versions of the song but could not find anything. Usually easier to create a remix with those extra materials. So i imported the entire original song into Acid Pro and built upon it. Luckily for me, the song is exactly at 120 BPM which is the default bpm in Acid. Once you’ve matched the beat per minute with the song, you should be able to add tracks like beats and they should match perfectly. I started by adding a bass and vocals “Je t’Aime” then found some additional beats to overlay. I wanted to record more tracks from my Yamaha PSR 530 but ever since i installed Windows Vista, I have the hardest time configuring the sound in Adobe Audition. That sucks… Could have been even better.

Some of you will not notice the difference from the original version but trust me, there is. Just listen to the original song, then my own version.

Lyrics for In a Manner of Speaking by Nouvelle Vague :

NOUVELLE VAGUE
In A Manner Of Speaking
(feat. Camille) :: (Tuxedomoon)

In a Manner of speaking
I just want to say
That I could never forget the way
You told me everything
By saying nothing

In a manner of speaking
I don’t understand
How love in silence becomes reprimand
But the way that i feel about you
Is beyond words

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Ohohohoh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

In a manner of speaking
Semantics won’t do
In this life that we live we only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrificed

So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That just like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing.

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Ohohohoh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Ohohohoh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything
