What's Due is Due | Nearly done (I think) - updated 20 May | Alt-rock (Jack White w/ Noel G on lead?)

Edit: I've updated the since posting the first version and incorporated some of DT's suggestions. Feedback on the mix welcome, or any sorts of ear candy suggestions. Wholesale restructuring of the track ain't gonna happen... ;)
Soundcloud links always go to the most recent version.


I've been working on a whole bunch of tracks at the same time. Here's another one! I think the arrangement is largely OK. The track is largely unmixed (I've set levels, panning and compressed a few tracks), drum programming is a bit half-arsed and I probably need to look at them in the chorus section in more detail.

Any thoughts on the arrangement/song in general? Anything missing/jarring?



I quite like the rhythm on this one, and the chorus is a 6-bar progression rather than 8. Nothing ground-breaking, but I think it gives this one it's own unique flair.

Verse part 1
Am | G C | E7 | E7 F

Verse part 2
C E7 Am G

Chorus
C G Am E7 F G
You've seen it all before
But no one's keeping score
It's something in your eyes
It keeps me mesmerised

The savings you withdrew
You could not undo
Keep tightening the screw
What's due is due

You've got me where you need
Am I supposed to plead?

I've played this game before
But no one's keeping score
But one thing is for sure
What's due is due

And now I feel alive
No words could describe
The way I feel with you
Floating in your eyes
Drifting in the skies
Until the day is through
Dig into your soul
What I find is gold
What wealth you did accrue
Such a big surprise
And then I realise
In the end what's due is due

She said she had a plan
I cannot wait young man!

She's such a devious mind
That I respond in kind
And now I'm in a bind
What's due is due

She took me for all I had
Left me shackled and unclad

And like the time before
No one's keeping score
But one thing is for sure
What's due is due

And now I feel alive
No words could describe
The way I feel with you
Floating in your eyes
Drifting in the skies
Until the day is through
Dig into your soul
What I find is gold
What wealth you did accrue
Such a big surprise
And then I realise
In the end what's due is due
