Don't Be Scared... because I'd probably be scared on a desert island.

or Artistic Vice... because it's so uplifting.

Thanks!  I love this - the baby's digging it too....
Daniel occasionally plays A7 and D7 instead of regular A and D

A   D    E7
She invited me to a pity party
Every hour everyone was making fun of me
I told her it really didnít matter
You canít imagine what itís done to my personality
C    F    G7
I donít know where she should go, but I lose
Though I tried, like a lullaby, I lose
A    D    E7
Once I saw her in a crazy dream
She was laughing, I looked the other way
Then I find that she unwinds, she puts me down behind my back
Everyone seems to have a love but me, itís what I lack
C    F    G7
Iíve been denied the hurt inside, I lose
Though she was barely a friend of mine, I lose
I got left out of the ďinĒ crowd
They speak as if I was there
They say the cruelest things, I seen their type
A bunch of buttwipes that rule
C   F   G7
Donít make sense, itís really strange, I lose
Though I try, thereís no sense giving up, I lose
I walk the second mile, thereís no one there, I lose
I pick up the pieces of my broken dream, I lose
Everyone had their fun, I lose
A   D   E7
Yet she was a one of them from the beginning
How am I to carry on, thereís no help given
Then I realize itís all reoccurrence
What theyíre thinking, their mind is a blur
C    F   G7
I seen the future, and I ainít even there, I lose
I see it all, and itís really, the same old thing, I lose
They think theyíre smart, all huddled together, I lose
One more time, I try to make it, I lose
A7   D7   E7
I lose, I lose
Tell me about it, darliní, now

I contributed a bunch of chords and tabs in the past but with a new baby I just haven't had the time.  I agree with Jeff - it needs to come back to life. I'm sure many are still watching the message board, but few are posting. I believe March had only 1 post!  I'll try to get some new chord charts in the future.  If there are any requests for chords I'd be happy to try and post them soon.

I took a little break from DJ - now I'm just beginning to listen again.  It's been refreshing.  Been really enjoying the later albums recently - Rejected Unknown and Lost and Found in particular.

It C to A throughout the entire song.  Sometimes he plays an A7.

Kramer all the way.  I really like Brian Beattie too.  He kept things a little ragged and let Daniel's odd phrasings carry the songs.  Kind of like listening to the band trying to follow Dylan on Subterranean Homesick Blues.  You can tell they just aren't sure when he's gonna change chords. On Is and Always Was it often sounds as if Faulkner created all of the tracks first and then had Daniel sing over them - a bit too quantized.  Though I admit Is and Always Was is growing on me one song at a time - the last song is my current favorite.

Freak Brain

The End Is Near Again
scroll down about halfway - it's in the middle

To my knowledge December Blues was never released.  Anyone know more about it?

Somewhat Humorious (a great one!)

Danny and Nightmares (self titled)
This was available on the official site a few years back.  Keep an eye out for it on ebay.

The Minneapolis gig doesn't match up either.  The tour dates page lists it as Aug 26 at First Ave but the First Ave website shows it as Aug 13.

Great videos!  Thanks for posting these!

Great story Henry!  Can you give us the track listing?... just curious.  Walk in the Wind has always been a favorite.  I love those distant guitar chords at the end.
10  General Discussion / Fan Forums / Re: best version of "true love..." on: October 01, 2008, 03:55:33 PM
This is the version from "1990"
11  General Discussion / Fan Forums / Re: dumb annoying question on: September 24, 2008, 07:48:49 PM
I'm with you wickedwill.  I hadn't listened to 1990 in a while - had to put it on last night after posting.  The Daniel Johnston - Kramer pairing is just perfect.  Kramer's presence is so subtle - he barely makes his presence as producer noticeable.  It really feels like whatever Daniel wanted on the record ended up on the record.  I could imagine a more meddling producer wanting to replace the Softly and Tenderly church recording with another song, or wanting to fill all of the silences in Devil Town and Spirit World Rising.

Do you mean the piano music that in the background?  That's the piano part from "Some Things Last a Long Time".  It's on "1990".  Definitely worth getting.

Hey all,

I've been going back and finishing unfinished songs from a few years ago.  Two of these are on my myspace page.  Feel free to check out some of the others if you haven't before.

Thanks!  Yeah, it's just me.  Hoping to one day get a band together to play these things.
