very humbly said in reply that it would be a great honor to have his
song available on Laura’s website for her fans to listen to as
they remember her.
Shawn’s comments on "Can’t
Stop Thinking About You"...
Like many I was deeply saddened
when I heard the news of Laura's untimely passing last summer. Even though we never met
I felt like I had lost a dear friend. So many incredible memories
I can attach to various songs of Laura's. They're frozen moments in time.
I wanted to do something that
would forever remind me of that connection. So as a songwriter I decided to put pen
to paper and try to in someway capture in words how I was feeling.
My intention was to try and reach Laura "cosmically" through
a song to thank her and pay tribute to her. I'm very fortunate
to have an amazing singer/songwriter/composer to collaborate with on
my songs, Shane Condo of Condo Music Australia. I gave Shane
my lyric sheet and told him some ideas I had and who I wrote the song
about, and as always he worked his wonders. We both agreed immediately
we captured something special with this one. I hope everyone
will be able to take something from it and make it their own.
Unfortunately these days success
in the music business is based on being notorious or having some sort
of gimmick. Laura Branigan's success however was based on 100% true
talent. What she embodied,
most will never attain. When you're the real deal you're exactly that.
The control, power, and emotion Laura could express through her
vocal abilities was nothing short of breath taking. She didn't just
sing the songs but she lived them and within seconds of hearing her voice
you were immediately swept away.
Thank you Laura for sharing
your gift with us all! Though
you've gone from this world you will forever remain in our hearts.
"Her voice my heart
With much love and respect,
Shane’s comments on "Can’t Stop Thinking
"It was an honor
to be able to compose a song in memory of Laura Branigan. Her
talent is timeless and will live on forever."
