The Change

My poor band had no idea what grown up woman music was about, but they found out way more than they ever wanted to know. I told them this was the menopause song. Jon said he remembered when his mom went through it. “My dad sat me down and said your Mom is going through some hormonal changes. Whatever she says, just agree with it.” The next night he sat him down and said “I know this is hard, but just agree with her.” The next night he sat him down and said “Just say whatever the Hell you want, I don’t even know what to tell you.”
The band was scared of this song, Ed called it, well, I won’t tell you what Ed called it. They put it off till the end of the second session. The song is all over the map, it speeds up then slows down then speeds up again, it goes from a minor to major. Dave’s key boards had a Hawaii Five-O theme going on. They all had fun with the song. Ed used a slide to play the lead with which added an out of control vibe. Jon was going nuts pounding on the drums, I was just trying to stay alive, and then there is Emily'’s singing back up vocals and just tearing it up.
After the bridge it speeds up like a run away train, and just when you think it’s over, surprise! The length of the pause was debated during mixing, but the long pause totally works. I was determined that my menopause song would rock and needed a proper rock-n-roll ending. I taunted them all when I described the ending, “a rock-n-roll ending; you know how to do that, right?” Well clearly they did because that’s what I got. And the scream at the end, that happened because at one point I lost my place while recoding the vocals and just screamed. Ed got the idea I should scream at the end of the chorus. “Scream” he tells me, no build up, no music. “I can’t just scream” I told him. “Come on” he tells me “You'’re in pain,” Ed, telling me how I feel again, “I’'m not in pain Ed” and then I screamed. We didn'’t really consider using it, but Mike stuck at the end of the song for a joke. I listened to it long enough to know that it belonged there. So we kept it.

lyrics

The Change

1) OK, we were making it through, taking care of everyone and everything too
We were dealing with it all, we were getting by,
Then things got really weird, started to grow a beard,
Life changed in a hormonal flash.

Chorus:
We’re going through the change have mercy, going through the change,
C'’mon sisters, sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out,
Sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out.

2) Can’t remember where we are, can’t remember where we parked our car,
Can’t read the phone book, can’t sleep at night,
We’re sad, we’re mad, we’re every emotion we’ve ever had all at once, it’s a free for all.

Chorus:
We’re going through the change have mercy, going through the change,
C'’mon sisters, sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out,
Sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out.


Bridge
It’s our turn to work it out, find out who we are and what we’re all about.

3) So I figured out what to do, bought a convertible Mr2,
Learned some tennis and some guitar too and its working for me,
You know that we’ve earned it; you know that we deserve it.
We’ll make it to the other side; we’ll be stronger too.

Chorus:
We’re going through the change have mercy, going through the change,
C'’mon sisters, sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out,
Sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out.

Julie Clark Shubert South Carolina

If you listened to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and every rocking song you could get your hands on from 1966 to now and stirred it up with a Fender Strat and sang it from a woman's perspective, you would have Julie Clark Shubert "From the Inside Out." When Julie turned 50, her husband gave her a Fender Strat, the stars aligned and her natural gift appeared, the rest is kinda a blur. ... more
