New Song: Goodbye To My Dancer?!?

Postby JamiroFan2000 on Sun Jun 27, 2010 10:52 pm

Hello Jamily,

First off, I haven't gotten or heard this supposed other new Jami song yet, apparently it was performed during the warm-up before Jamiroquai took to the stage at Hard Rock Calling. I first came across this song title when a few copies of the setlist from Jamiroquai's DEBUT gig got online, check out the following link to see the playlist, you will notice that this new song is listed inbetween 'Rock Dust Light Star' & 'Love Foolosophy, but based on what JK said at the gig, Mercury Records (Their new label on the Universal Music Imprint) wouldn't allow them to play anymore NEW SONGS, anyway, here's the setlist, currently for sale on EBay:

-> http://tinyurl.com/2ffbjth

I have also trolled through all the recent live videos from the DEBUT gig & yesterday's Hard Rock Calling Gig and haven't came across a recording of this new song either. But I am hopeful someone will have recorded it and will upload the footage soon. When I learn more, I will certainly post about it! Cheers!

Sincerely,
JamiroFan2000

Don't mention it, Sandra, I just still abit perplexed about this 2nd new song, I am hoping SOMEONE recorded it at HRC yesterday. I think we'll know something about this mystery this coming week, recording has to be out there. Oh well, back to trollin' YouTube of all the HRC live videos and hoping it was captured. Cheers!

This is what the article says:

There's more candor in the blues-reggae Goodbye To My Dancer. "It's sort of based on someone I know, But it's been switched around a bit. But yeah, the girl I Used to go out with, then she got married ... "It contains elements of" that you're left with bitterness When You're Left Out in the cold. And yeah, it's a bit naughty, a bit cheeky. "


Not an instrumental. Sounds like the dog's being put outside (or cat)! :lol:

Or maybe he shouldn't - missed a good chance once and should forever regret it now. (Well, that didn't sound dramatic at all, did it? :lol: )

People still associate her with Jay because he hasn't been in a public relationship with anyone since then. :wink:

Yep and that's fine but he should move on! Too much "slowniness" in those matters will make me older, faster! :lol:

What do we know about the lyrics and who they're for? We all live in our own mircro-cosmic world.
We know about ourselves and feelings. We really don't know about too many others. For anyone, especially an artist, one moment, or one relationship, can mean so much.

'Course we can't - but we can always try and draw parallels. Or take the piss out on it. :lol:

One can't help but wonder what we'd be hearing from Jay now if they'd married.

I love the instrumental version of Tallulah. Skip the vocal too :|

So when RDLS came out I had high expectations of "Goodbye to My Dancer".

I really like the reggae groove, and I like the verses.
But I find the music kinda depressing in the chorus. So this makes it a sad ballad.
But what really stands out is the lead guitar. It has it's own voice. Awesome.
And I really like the shout back "Now I pretend, that I don't care..." right at 3:00. Best part of the vocals.
And it is a good song.

But I don't get "so you might as well get out of here because you've been paid".
I read it would be cheeky, but doesn't seem this. Maybe only for one person. :lol:

Hi again Giba7!

I read somewhere that this song was about Jay's ex, Denise. So I think this line refers to when they broke up and she sold their story to tabloids/magazines.

Were you thinking it was about what I think you are thinking?! :wink:

And it is a good song.


I love these lyrics too, especially "But I'm a lonely man and I'm running scared". Gee, those lyrics get to me every time, really tugs at the heart strings!
