Simplicity. { Hmmm ... Never heard of it Clown }

Have been listening to some early 1960's Pop for a personal project.

This Andy Williams tune ( Can't Get Used To Losing You - 1963 ) was a hit when I was a much younger guy; but the reason for mentioning this song is the 'fill' of just two quick strokes. Just an accent, really.

You'll hear the drummer Rim Clicks the Snare with the Stick and complements with the Brush. The fill is accomplished with the Brush.

Those two strokes are the most that ought to be heard. More? Doesn't work.

It's stark; yet it's perfect. At no point does he interfere with the instruments nor yet the vocals.

Andy Williams' voice is Double-Tracked and that's the most 'love' this song gets. Everything is understated.

People might think of this as elevator music; but I bring it up because of it hitting that particular mark.

The vehicle of the song, in my opinion, is not simply Andy Williams; but Andy Williams Double-Tracked with basic vocal harmony over a very quiet musical track of the simplest variety.

That's my case - two strokes very much 'underneath'.
