Here you go Henry,

Thanks for pointing my musical sniffer towards this ****ing fantastic tune

The song is more out of my range

(vocal, not emotional)

than most of the other one so far

My Blakean Year - Patti Smith


Note:

I added an extra verse

Its an exerpt from Blake's The Everlasting Gospel that seem to fit quite well after the verse:

"Boots that tread from track to track(...)"

New original

The Best Sleep of my Life - Dan (me!)

A better title would be appreciated

http://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed3


http://rapidshare.com/files/123944344/The_Best_Sleep_of_my_Life.mp3.html


We walked through each beautiful, drifting thought
At each stop he asked me to cry
I'd give him a smile and say "I better not"
And for my smile he'd trade me sigh
Then with his fists he would ask me again
To tear up in both my black eyes
Mother****er you can beat me to death
But you still find out if I lied

I lay prone long enough to escape in the end
But I wasn't without a scratch
We both didn't doubt that my words hid a lie
But it wasn't one he could catch
All the bumps on my brain left me so mixed up
That I thought I could find where he went
Then drug him and burn him and bury his ashes
Under ten feet of cement

But each broken bone in my body
And each scab that started to heal
All the feet, fist, and elbows that landed
Finally became something real
And the smartest part of my brain
Told me to call it a night
To grab the humility blanket he left me
And to wrap my self up in it tight

and say goodnight

 :-DWow, thanks for that cover of "In My Blakean Year," Dan. I like the added verse, and I like the way you changed the tempo. It's really cool, this idea of yours. Document it well. grin

"The Best Sleep of My Life" is really good too, and I wouldn't change the title. You are a powerful writer.

"...All the bumps on my brain left me so mixed up

Thank You

I really appreciate the feedback.

Edit: This thread has found a happy new home!

Another original

A Sophomoric Lecture on Death - Dan (me!)


http://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed3


http://rapidshare.com/files/124345722/A_Sophomoric_Lecture_on_Death.mp3.html


I know that at my age they say
You live with chip on your shoulder
But what I've started to notice
Is it stays with you as you get older

And after a while
you get used to the throbbing
You make sure to live prepared
Have alcohol around
Not just for swabbing
But also in case you start to care

And for each sight you see it gets deeper and wider 
Until your shoulder is gone
Replaced with a neat little sign on your back
Saying death is approaching anon
 
Then one day you will reap the rewards
of your life-long friend
The rot and decay that he left in his wake
Will bring you a quiet end

No invitations
No fireworks
No swinging from the rafters
Just a calm
and tasteful
Transition into the Everafter

This song

(as well as The Very Best of Dr Hook and the Medicine Show Band

were ever-present as the background of my childhood

I still really love it

She's So Modern - The Boomtown Rats

http://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed4


http://rapidshare.com/files/125043439/She_s_So_Modern.mp3.html


This song contains my favourite verse ever:

Jean confided to me
She's Mona Lisa's biggest fan
She drew a mustache on her face
She's always seen her as a man

I prefer the original Buffy Sainte-Marie version

Thats the one I ended up covering

My voice is dying

This is the second take,

Right at the beginning and a few verses in

I was very light headed

You can hear it in the guitar

Here


Cod'ine - Buffy Saint-Marie

Joe Newman is unreal

The proof is in the audio pudding:

http://mutant-sounds.blogspot.com/2007/09/rudy-schwartz-project-bowling-for.html

Everyone should shop around and find "Gunther Packs a Stiffy"

Surreal and melodic yet grinding and frustrated

Here's a cover of my favourite Rudy Schwartz Project tune:

The Dallas Cowboys, Jesus and Me - The Rudy Schwartz Project

http://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed4


http://rapidshare.com/files/125531414/The_Dallas_Cowboys__Jesus_and_Me.mp3.html


p.s.

2 new originals really soon

New song is a bit early today

Its a minute and a half segment of a 6 minute improv

I like it

Its a little rough

Edit: I just noticed that the verses have the same rhythm as "More Dead Than Alive"

This week's special: Pop songs

A written pop song is one of the most impressive musical feats

To make a tune that is inoffensive, yet catchy and enjoyable is pretty impressive

Today:

TV Themes

Diff'rent Strokes, Laverne and Shirley, and Greatest American Hero

I picked these because they are shows I have never seen, yet I know the themes

Which shows that they are pretty special

TV Themes - Various Artists
