Hey wow man, thanks!

I love this site. Wish I had more time to spend on it. :(

The lyrics for this were randomly picked out of the dictionary. The guitar player just looped the riff while I opened it to random pages and picked a word with my eyes closed. Wrote down a list, and then just filled in the blanks.

But funny how it took a political turn? I've never been a very political person, but I can't listen to this song now without thinking it's a diatribe against someone in office, particularly George W. (even though it was written when his Dad was pres!)

"sound quality issues for my tastes"

Would that be the tupperware drum sound aaron? hee hee

Not a bad song though. But the digital sound does hurt it. If the song wasn't as promising, this would be instant R. But it warrants an SS.

HAHA I'm assuming Smoov isn't trying to come off "all hard" etc, if he's referencing Forrest Gump!

I've never understood why hip hop gets consistent R votes on this site. This isn't bad. I'll give it an SS.

Vocals for sure need to be more up front in the mix. I mean, REALLY. Could've been a feature with that. That and an organ, yeah. SS.

Well, either way, you were bang on with the Failure reference. Not so much with the Mike Patton though.

Well done Mista! Failure's "Fantastic Planet" was a HUGE influence on this band, and this album. Go listen to our "A Distant Soil", and it will become even more obvious.

Thanks! And yeah, this isn't really supposed to stand up as a song on its own, so not surprised by that kind of reaction. I was just plum out of recorded songs besides these segues, so I thought "what the heck" and uploaded them.

Hey IE, understood. However, every "Song" I have recorded and digitized is already uploaded, so I uploaded what I had left.

Please do! I wonder if anyone has actually taken the time to listen to the segues in context, by listening to the preceeding and proceeding songs as well?

Cool tune! Suggestion: If I hear correctly, you have two verses or stanzas before each chorus. I would cut the guitar noodling you do on the 7th and 8th bar, that is the part right before the 2nd verse comes in.
Um...how to illustrate this, as I don't know and can't really understand the lyrics?
"I see the way you look at me.....dun dun dun dun" and then go right to the next verse, drop those two bars of guitar riff right after that. But KEEP those two bars leading into the chorus maybe?
If you know what I mean, noodle with it, see if you like it. I find that the average music listener has built in preconceived notions of how a song, especially a 4/4 song like this, will go. They start to expect or predict how the next verse is going to go. So, messing with that as much as possible(without getting too crazy) is more memorable.
