Bend Me Shape Me
I wish I could say there was a special story about how the American Breed got to record this song, but there isn’t. Bill Traut produced the record after my writing partner Scott English sent a copy of it to him. My demo had the chorus a little differently, off the beat, and Bill put it ON the beat which made the whole difference in the power of the chorus. There was another version, what we call a cover version in the UK recorded by the band, Amen Corner. Interestingly, they totally changed the melody of the chorus, utilizing the same lyrics, and the song was STILL a big hit in many countries abroad.
