Post by: Henry Long on June 17, 2008, 06:55:24 AM
What a great idea. I really like what you did with Cohen's "Diamonds in the mine." There is a rawness of expression. The Guitar tuner takes some getting used to, but I am reminded of seeing Miles Davis shortly before he died, full band onstage. He walked over to this massive keyboard and put his finger on one key, and left it on, that one note, through the whole number, everything building and moving around that one musical spine. After the song was over, he'd simply walk over to the keyboard and switch it off, which was when the audience would start to clap. He did this one-note thing for about half the numbers that night.

So, anyway, yeah. Keep going! Good luck.

Requests, hmm? I'll have to think about this one...

that was fun. I like "walking the cow" better than "better walking the cow"

Do you do any Bob Dylan? I'd like to hear "Man in the Long Black Coat"

I'm on a break too, but I'm not doing anything constructive. Good luck with the project.


Title: Re: Summer Break (down?) - The Living Album
Post by: danmucherplexed on June 18, 2008, 06:35:14 AM
You're

Probably...

(Maybe)

Request: Cover of Patti Smith's "My Blakean Year" from her 2004 release Trampin'

Lyrics: http://www.pattismith.net/trampin/myblakeanyear_lyrics.html

Maybe not your thing, but I think it would sit well within the context of what you're doing!
By the way, "50 Second Ditty" is brilliant. Solid, wonderful lyric, Bare Naked Ladies kinda delivery, just awesome...congrats.

Post by: danmucherplexed on June 20, 2008, 08:21:59 PM
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://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed3)

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


Title: Re: Summer Break (down?) - The Living Album
Post by: Henry Long on June 22, 2008, 08:17:54 AM
 :-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. :-D

"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
That I thought I could find where he went
Then drug him and burn him and bury his ashes
Under ten feet of cement."

Another original

A Sophomoric Lecture on Death - Dan (me!)


http://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed3
 (http://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed3)

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

I prefer the original Buffy Sainte-Marie version

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

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

Surreal and melodic yet grinding and frustrated

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

Maybe a little Del Shannon "Runaway" could be added to this mix?
I always thought this was a great song, even almost a Daniel song,
in style if not sentiment. What do you think?

http://www.chordie.com/allsongs.php/songtitle/Runaway/songartist/Del+Shannon/

Lyrics:
As I walk along,
I wonder what went wrong,
With our love, a love that was so strong.
And as I still walk on,
I think of the things we've done
Together, a-while our hearts were young.

I'm a-walkin' in the rain,
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain,
Wishin' you were here by me,
To end this misery
And I wonder--
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder,
Why,
Why, why, why, why, why she ran away,
Yes, and I wonder,
A-where she will stay-ay,
My little runaway,
Run, run, run, run, runaway.

[Musitron solo] *

I'm a-walkin' in the rain,
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain,
Wishin' you were here by me,
To end this misery
And I wonder--
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder,
Why,
Why, why, why, why, why she ran away,
Yes, and I wonder,
A-where she will stay-ay,
My little runaway,
Run, run, run, run, runaway.
Run, run, run, run, runaway.
Run, run, run, run, runaway. 


* The 1961 song "Runaway" by Del Shannon. The song features a famous solo by Max Crook, performed on a heavily-modified clavioline that Crook called the "Musitron".

Check this one out. Short and sweet, and I think you could rock it:

Cat Stevens 'But I Might Die Tonight" from "Tea For the Tillerman."

Chords:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/119379/stevens-cat-but-i-might-die-tonight-chords

Lyrics:
Dont want to work away
Doin just what they all say
Work hard boy and youll find
One day you'll have a job like mine

'Cause I know for sure
Nobody should be that poor
To say yes or sink low
Because you happen to say so, say so, you say so

I dont want to work away
Doing just what they all say
Work hard boy and you'll find
One day youll have a job like mine, job like mine, a job like mine

Be wise, look ahead
Use your eyes he said
Be straight, think right
But I might die tonight!


Hope you're getting out and enjoying the sunshine once in awhile too, Dan! :-D
Gotta make that Vitamin D, you know...

I'll be fine

Problem? What problem? I loved it.
And I like what you added at the end from "Miles From Nowhere."
Cat Stevens wrote some pretty complex chord arrangements, to my ear at least.

Glad you're feeling better and on a roll.
Would you be at all interested in this...?

(tabs and lyrics:)   http://www.greenplastic.com/lyrics/karmapolice.php


Karma Police by Radiohead

Karma police
arrest this man,
he talks in maths,
he buzzes like a fridge,
he's like a detuned radio.

Karma police
arrest this girl,
her Hitler hairdo
is making me feel ill
and we have crashed her party.

This is what you get,
this is what you get,
this is what you get,
when you mess with us.

Karma police
I've given all I can,
it's not enough,
I've given all I can
but we're still on the payroll.

This is what you get,
this is what you get,
this is what you get,
when you mess with us.

For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself.
Phew, for a minute there,
I lost myself, I lost myself.

For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself.
Phew, for a minute there,
I lost myself, I lost myself.

Loving your tunes & covers danmucherplexed :)

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 :)

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. ( :-D or on something! :-D)

Hey! Where'd ya get that one?! I love it. Love the improv towards the end too.
It was almost like Ween meets Stanley Kubrick! Thanks....

Here's a few more poem/songs I wrote:

Morning Song
 
The mountains are gone.
Hills have all turned gray.
Rivers of black starlings
heading south for nine long days.
And I crave because I loved her,
but I’m trying to upgrade.
Sleeping in a catapult,
dreaming of the jade.
 
I want to kiss her like an archer,
bending back the bow,
pulling on the bowstring,
and releasing the arrow
into the constellation
where the ghosts of lovers go.
Light a candle for the conquered,
close my eyes and watch it glow.
 
Played a game of poker.
Lost a pair of queens.
Took my heart out for a beating.
Watched an opera from the wings.
And the song of dawn is humming
what it hasn’t learned to sing.
My currency’s uncommon.
It’s not worth suffering.
 
Somewhere there’s an ocean.
Somewhere there’s a glade.
Somewhere is an architect
digging with a spade.
And this morning came an answer
but the bed was never made.
Night has done gone left me.
Stars burn bright then fade.

©2002 Henry Long


Pisser

We’re surrounded by profound mysteries.
Reverent wonders in the pipe work.

Crows in the trees speak Japanese,
and my neighbor’s dog barks the F-word.

666 in my socks on the floor.
Abominations in the wood grain.

Saw the face of a Saint in a towel on my door
and Aphrodite in a rug stain.

Sacred hearts in the flames of my farts.
Kali Ma in the gasses.

Peed gasoline and lit lighter fluid streams.
I reduce my century to ashes.


©1997 Henry Long



Serpent Bride
 
My serpent bride was taken by the night.
Begged her not to leave. She said she'd be alright.
I still see the gold white heat light in her eye.
Now I pray the Lord for his swift sword to fly.
 
We wed in the wood where the reckless winds hushed.
I knew her by scent and was known by her touch.
Slept in the caves so no one could harm us.
She gave me her skin and I made a promise.
 
Now I search the dark for her long hymnal hiss.
I can taste her still from our very last kiss.
I watch the sky for signs and the dirt for her trail.
Has my serpent bride consumed her own tail?
 
When my grave is made I'll be calling out her name.
Though my bones turn dust they will blow about the same.
As the days wind down all I see is her face.
Death to the thief who has emptied me of grace.


©2002 Henry Long



Prayerabola
 
I wanna see the world
while there's still a world to see.
The future just ain't
what it used to be.
 
Somehow in our infamy,
we lost the infant poetry,
forgot the codes of alchemy,
accepted mediocrity
and called graffiti prophecy.
 
Lucifer,
you little Daystar,
old horny headed pal,
you ain't down there for the count,
you're just tripping on your tale.
 
Yahweh,
you old buzzard,
bearded hot-headed Jew,
you did not create the universe,
man, the universe created You.

And bless us,
O big Mama Earth!
Keep us on the ground.
And let us not fear
dark or light,
and may Your World go round.


©1997 Henry Long

My wife Emma says get a producer quick cuz you got a real future in the biz! :mrgreen:

I've thoroughly enjoyed the variety of styles you bring to these, Dan. I like the punk edge you graced Pisser
with (appropriately) and Prayerabola (one of my personal favorites and my favorite ((I think)) so far of these collaborations) made me profoundly happy. Wish you lived next door, brother.

Little ditty I wrote in driver's ed today

Even more arrogant that ever

I meant analytical mind as in i can't just accept that there's nothing I can do about some things, so instead I look for some way to "fix" it.

Damn My Analytical Mind - Dan (me!)

http://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed18 (http://www.purevolume.com/muchperplexed18)

Baring the casket was not nearly as strange
as feeling him raise himself out and like, a rocket fly away
I felt like laughing untill someone else did too
Saying I knew we could never make tha mother****er stay

Instead we set down the casket, finding the softest spots on the concrete
Unbuttoning their jackets, slipping off their dress shoes, deciding to bitch about heat

I run across the street barefoot not to kick the door down like and action star
But to collide with it and watch it shatter
Knowing that if I can just to that search the shards I'll find whats the matter

And if I don't in the mess I'll writhe screaming

Damn my analytical mind
Damn my analytical mind
Damn my analytical mind
Damn my analytical mind
Damn my analytical mind
Damn my analytical mind
Damn my analytical mind
Damn my analytical mind

Giving my permission to the sky my analytical mind to condemn
Life to see the day I can see people cry and instead of trying to fix it, sit down and cry with them

Hey, Halloween's coming up, so why not.

If you end up on a page with some columns and an option for a free download, just follow the free download link. It's all kinda convoluted, it may not work.

If that's not working, here's another link.

Before the month's end, a music video will have been edited and released as well.
