Carry Me Carrie - Dr Hook

If I had a band I would cover Get My Rocks Off, one of the greatest songs ever

This is a first take, which means its even more pitchy then my usual covers

Loving your tunes & covers danmucherplexed Smiley

Ever thought of doing......

Pleasant Street - Tim Buckley

You dont remember what to say
You dont remember what to do
You dont remember where to go
You dont remember what to choose
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down

All the stony people
Walking round in christian licorice clothes
I cant hesitate
And I cant wait
For pleasant street

The sunshine reminds you of concreted skies
You thought you were flying but you opened your eyes
And you found yourself falling back to yesterdays lies
Hello, pleasant street, you know shes back again
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down

All the stony people
Walking round in christian licorice clothes
I cant hesitate
And I cant wait
For pleasant street

At twilight your lover comes to your room
Hell spin you, hell weave you round his emerald loom
And softly youll whisper all around his ear
Sweet lover, I love pleasant street
I wheel, I steal, I feel my way down to kneel

All the stony people
Walking round in christian licorice clothes
I cant hesitate
And I cant wait
For pleasant street

You dont remember what to say
You dont remember what to do
You dont remember which way to go
You dont remember who to choose
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down

or..........

Ever Lovin’ Man - The Loved Ones


You also mentioned once that you did a version of some lyrics I wrote called "Salt" would love to hear it mate Smiley

The version of Salt is long gone

But I'll redo it

Here's a cover of your poem Sunerise 6am

I took a lot of liberties with it

Post other poems and I'll give 'em a shot

Here's a poem I wrote which I used to perform with musicians all the time.
We'd be pretty intuitive about it. If the song was really rocking, we'd take
a heavy jam between the 3rd and 4th verses, then come back softly.

Anyway, I consider it one of my signature spoken word pieces.
Maybe you will find it conducive to your musical ear.
(If not, I have many more!)

Seven Days

I spent seven days baking bread,
then seven more sitting down at my table
eating all that bread
piece by piece.
No butter. No sugar. No jam.
Just my teeth and hands
and the rare swallow of wine to mellow the yeast.
   And now all I want is to be inside her.

I spent seven days working on a building,
then seven more taking it down
with the front of my head
brick by brick.
No hammer. No hatchet. No pick.
Just my big old goofy head.
I knew the mortar was bad. I mixed it that way.
   And now all I want is to be inside her.

I spent seven days riding the wing of a bee,
then seven more flower to flower,
my face full of that stuff
swallow after swallow.
No honey. No queen. No sting.
Just me and the bee doing our thing.
Little petals sometimes brushed my legs.
   And now all I want is to be inside her.

I spent seven days sitting on top of the world,
then seven more trying to get back down.
My head way up there in the clouds
rainbow to rainbow.
No elevator. No stair. No slide.
Just take a deep breath, close your eyes, enjoy the ride.
But let me tell you, the last thousand miles get a little shaky.
   And now all I want is to be inside her.

Thank you

Interpreting the poems and then putting them to music is really enjoyable

This was the only take where something didn't go wrong (even this one needed a phone ring edited out)

(dropping the pick because of the constant downpicking, the dogs howling,  forgetting words)

This took a bit more than 4 hours stretched over 2 different sessions

That was pretty damn amazing, Dan. You blew me away. You made it rock for me, dude, and I can tell the time you put into the arrangement. Your choices in the phrasing are exciting to me, especially after reading it pretty much the same way for 15 years or so.

Are you really interested in more? Let me know and I'll put some song-poems up here... we might be onto something with this, y'know. ( grin or on something! grin)

I would be honoured to attempt some more interpretations

The uploads might not be as frequent as I am back at school as of yesterday

But the gaps will only be a few days on either side (I think...)
