Also part of my 2009 Emmy nomination. The best part of this song, is how dynamic it is. This is always tough for TV because once the audio leaves the studio and hits the airwaves there is so much compression that happens. I really wanted their dynamics to come across though. One way to do that was to make the bass louder then I would normally put it in the mix. This helped give the sense of the sound filling up when they hit the chorus. I also took care to carve out spots for each instrument and vocal so everything fit in it’s own place. The results got me a 2009 Emmy nomation.
