There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

<a href="">There Is A Light That Never Goes Out by smithsproject</a>

This one is dedicated to my love, Josh Cadwising. He is my inspiration, the father of my crazy toddler, and an amazing photographer. This is one of his favorite songs. Also "our" song is Jack the Ripper, so I combined the two, slightly. If you listen to the bass line, it's almost exactly the same as the Jack the Ripper's verse. I spent a lot of time on this song and it probably has more layers than anything else I've done to date. It's impossible to say at this point, since many of the layers contain multiple voices bounced down to one track, but I'm guessing somewhere in the neighborhood of 50+ layers.

I decided to end it the same way Morrissey does in the live 2004 version of Who Put the 'M' in Manchester. I always loved how everyone floats off stage one by one leaving Mike Farrell to play the beautifully haunting strings and flute melodies on his own.

back when we were new...


  1. OMG - I can TOTALLY hear Jack the Ripper in there! That's so cool! The rest of it is pretty awesome too. Amazing.

  2. This is truly awesome. The vocal layers are beautiful ... i think even mozza got a boner.

  3. I love this, great work. Will be subscribing!
