LYNN CAREY SAYLOR'S greatest passion in life is that of a songwriter. All words and music on 10 of 11 songs on her new modern Rock/Pop/AAA CD "YOU LIKE IT CLEAN" are written entirely by her and she tackles such weighty subjects as racial tolerance (on her award winning song "IF WE BELIEVE" featuring BRIAN MAY of QUEEN) and drunk driving (on the emotional heavy rock ballad "I WASN'T A FRIEND"), but never seems to be preaching to you. Her songwriting style is one of thoughtful lyrics, expressive melodies, big dramatic chorus hooks, lush background harmonies and full bodied instrumentation, set off by modern production.
Queen's Brian May also appears on the lone cover tune on "You Like It
Clean", the 1984 smash hit for Pat Benatar, "WE BELONG." Lynn's
version of the song boasts not only Brian May, but also the
songwriters of the song, Eric Lowen and Dan Navarro.
Eric Lowen suffers from the progressive and eventually fatal disease,
ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), so Lynn wished to record and include "We Belong" on her album for personal, as well as professional reasons. Lynn has known the songwriters of "We Belong" personally for a number of years.
For those who know Pat Benatar's big ballad interpretation of the
song, there will be some surprise as to Lynn's much more rocked up
arrangement of the song, a departure that was designed to set it apart from Pat's version and also to reflect Lynn's unique musical style and identity.
