Music: Playa - Wrong Side Of The Bed

Here is another blog exclusive for ya, and this one is produced by Timbaland. A lot of us are probably familiar with this track, but this is in CD quality. Yes, I said it, CD Quality.

I remember discovering this track on Playa's myspace a couple of years ago. I had heard Outsiderz4Life's version prior to that and had no idea the original version was done by Playa. It is definitely one of my favourite Playa tracks (one of Tim Barnett's favourite also).

Whose version of the song do you prefer? Outsiderz4Life's or Playa's?

Outsiderz4Life - Wrong Side Of The Bed





Playa - Wrong Side Of The Bed





And a bonus for all the beat lovers out there, can you hear the tick tick sound in the beginning? Timbaland also used that sample on "Time" by Aaliyah, which I believe was written by Static. Though the song was unfinished, you can hear Static's trademark writing style on it.

This is one of my favorite tracks. Scott Storch actually played the piano. What made me really fall in love with this track is one night we were in the studio in New York with Timbaland and Scott Storch came through. We were all in the back room and Scott played it live and Static and Smokey hummed that shit! LIVE! Crazy. I have the footage and may share it at a later date! Holla at me.

Ive heard both versions before and of course, i love Playa's version, but i prefer the rhodes mix...it's so raw and vocal arrangements are amazing!

By the way, I don't have a clue how The Outsiderz ever got this track!!!!! This was Playa all the way! We must have had a leak somewhere and I knw tht it wasn't Static or I! The Outsiderz are my peoples but WTF????

that tick/beep sound at the beginning is the metronome click, you'll often hear it as a tick, a hi-hat or a beep, and sometimes people use it to count them in, if not through the whole recording ... I guess Timbo liked the sound and decided to include it on some songs ... I had a feeling Scott Storch worked on this when I first heard it ... def wanna see that footage too, a documentary would be crazy, you already got a built-in fanbase right here, and tons of other fans that don't know about the site yet
