Maroon 5 is going to release their third studio album in December and then they’re breaking up. It’ll be called “The Lovelife.” I’m not sure where they announced this, but it’s on Wikipedia, so it must be true. I get that all good things must come to an end, and it must get old doing the same old, same old for a long period of time, even if you make a bunch of money, but it’s still very sad. I hope they go on tour for the final album, since I missed the show that was just on in September, and the Super Bowl show was madly disappointing.
What they didn’t mention is that one of the reasons they are breaking up is that Adam Levine and I are going to record an album together. Our voices do mesh well, after all. :-p
I actually think they do. My choirs have a concert tomorrow, so our new conductors were listening to our voices to decide on placement on the risers. I, of course, am always on the end, because my voice does not mix well with anyone else’s. I think I should be near the boys, because I have such a low alto range that I’m pretty much a tenor anyway. I sound better with a guy than a girl pretty much any time. Strangely, now that I have a cold, I have a pretty good head voice, and I’m hitting high Fs in one of our songs better than I did before. It’s the low notes I can’t do. I’m sure we learned about this in linguistics last year and I’m just forgetting what the reason is, but it seems strange to lose your lower notes but not your top notes when you have a cold. I guess it makes sense that since a cold is in your chest, your chest voice goes first? I dunno.
Mr. Levine, whenever you’re bored, you can just come down to Tucson and give me a few songwriting lessons. Just drop me a line or give me a call.
