Girls’ Generation “Goodbye”

Girls’ Generation song Produced by Brent Paschke. Co-Written by Brent Paschke, Lindy Robbins & Jenna Andrews.

In the 1st week the song hit #10 on the South Korea Gaon Chart & has sold over 147,ooo downloads!

This is a song I did with a couple amazing writers Lindy Robbins & Jenna Andrews. What a blast it was to do this song. We were originally writing to get a song on Jenna’s album. This is how I feel most of the best songs happen, when writing just for a vibe, writing just to dig for the feel of the artist in the room & waiting for that magic moment when the artist says “that’s it!” That’s how this song came about.

Jenna has this incredible old soul voice and vibe so I wanted to go for a more organic & classic production. Starting with a Rhodes piano & not pulling out production tricks was the way to go. Just let the song speak for itself. Very easy to do when you have someone like Jenna & Lindy taking charge on the lyric & melody.

We finished the song & heard nothing from the label. Mid deal they decided to change direction. Who knows why but ended up being great for all of us.

After the call that I got the cut I just had to prepare the Protools session for SM Entertainment to translate & record vocals. Always a bit of a tough thing to do not knowing what will happen to your arrangement. But have to say with this one I’m so impressed! They really got the feel! The girls did an amazing job at capturing the vibe we were looking for.

So hats off to Girls’ Generation and thanks to SM Entertainment & Girls Generation for doing this song justice!
