(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: WAY MAKER BY PAUL MC CLURE “WOW! HE REALLY HAD A LOT TO SING ABOUT!” +SINACH OR PAUL MC CLURE’S VERSION?

IG@ogefashblog.

Waymaker is a popular song by a Nigerian songstress- Sinach. However lots of gospel artistes Nigeria and mostly abroad sought her consent to do their various versions. One of such artiste is Paul Mc Clure. His version was however elongated compared to the original version by Sinach which just lasted for about 5 minutes 5 seconds. He really had a lot to sing about.

WHAT IS THE SONG WAY MAKER BY PAUL MC CLURE ABOUT

The lyrics are pretty the same with the original; the only difference is Paul’s vocal, the number of backup singers on his version, the duration and the manner in which he sang his version. Hence, to know what the song is all about, kindly refer to the review of Waymaker by Sinach here https://ogefash.reviews/2020/04/22/lyricsmeaningtranslation-music-review-waymaker-by-sinach-some-songs-are-just-evergreen-this-is-here-is-why-this-song-has-about-200-million-views/

However, the brief definition of a way maker is someone that creates ways.  English dictionary defines a way maker as a pathfinder, pioneer and a precursor.

 

Paul’s version is also melodious like the original version however, it was unnecessarily elongated. Jeez! It was three times the duration of the original version Okay, I get it, when the spirit is at work, it can’t be controlled right, even when singing? That works well for ministrations or concerts; but when considering a song for commercial purposes outside church ministrations, the duration is better trimmed.

Although, I noticed that at some point he wanted to end the song, but he again picked it up and continued singing, hence, the reason for the lengthy duration

Moving on, for me, the most melodious part in Paul Mc Cure’s version is the refrain especially the part where he sang, “Even when I can’t see it, You’re working….Even when I don’t feel it, You’re working……You never stop, You never stop working…You never stop, You never stop working”

 

Paul Mc Clure’s version is a bit faster than Sinach’s version. He has also got an appealing vocal. The backup singers took the various parts well. However, if I am to choose a preferable version, I would go for the original version by Sinach; it is more spirit filling.

The major instruments used to compose this song include drums, guitar, piano
