Lyrics
:
i hate the nightlife
and everything that comes with it
i hate the nightlife
everybody's full of shit

fetch me a drink, dear
and another cigarette
don't wanna be here
so let's hop in the corvette

cause it's all we've got to do

CHORUS

here we are again
wearing fancy overalls
yeah we're here again
might as well be at the mall

god damn drag queens
they can't even sing a song
so follow me
before this night it gets too long


go find the DJ
tell him that i wanna dance
no, hang the DJ
saying that he came from France

fuck this disco
and this rotten jesus-town
let's go disco
let this place burn to the ground

CHORUS (+1st ending)

we need a nightlift
something just to get us through
just don't panic
nothing that you heard's untrue

4 am now
why are we still hanging round?
quarter past then
morning's come without a sound

maybe we should just go home

CHORUS (+2nd ending)

kill the TV
lock the door
and burn the night

come with me
hit the floor
you know we'll start a fight

but we can't fight tonight
no, our time has gotta be alright
cause it's all we've got to do

1st ending:
it's all we've got to do
we've got nowhere to go
we've got no one to know

2nd ending:
it's all we've got to do
but i know someone who knows
we've got somewhere to go
maybe we should just go home

I look forward to hearing this develop.
Do you plan on keeping it acoustic?
Your voice has a David Byrne-like quality that's a little quirky
but very refreshing.

I look forward to hearing this develop.
hey thanks -

i'm not sure what i'm going to do with it. it's just a silly little song i wrote. not to
be taken seriously really.

Not Sorry
Not sure why you're apologizing - you obviously believe whole heartedly in what
you're saying.

Would you care to tell me what exactly is disgraceful about this song? I'm
curious.

Cool song
I'm really interested to see how you would develop this one if
you decide to take it past a demo. I really like the lyrics. They
paint an interesting picture. It's very cool, I really hope you
decide to revisit it.

Lovely song...
This could be arranged in so many ways... I suspect that
you're hearing an arrangement in your head as you play it
too. I know you said in chat that this was a sort of
throwaway moment, but it's a really nicely written song.
Of course as Paintball said, you can't sing... (splutter)...
but apart from that....

Your voice and delivery are great, by the by.

Lovely song...
thanks! yeah, i know i need to work on my voice... sad but true.

the only thing i've thought about is maybe using organ at the beginning. it'd be
great with some punchy kind of cabaret style piano...

maybe some mandolin!

good rhythm
recording could be better (vocals are a little hard to
understand), and would've enjoyed a bit of digital
instrumention in addition to the guitar, but that's just my
taste.

Great!
The vocals sound a bit tinny, but that could just be my speakers... otherwise, I love it!! Can't wait to hear it done fully!!

Great!
thanks!

yeah, the quality's bad. neither the guitar nor i were close to the mic. might do
a multitrack later.

Cries out for an arrangement
I like your voice very much -- agree with Mungo that it's reminiscent of David Byrne. I think it's funny that you went with an acoustic guitar for a song about clubbing and I think you could keep that sound very successfully. Definitely calls for improved recording but there's nothing wrong with your chops, either on guitar or vocals. :-)

One silly suggestion: I think the guitar break at around 3:00 should be a full-on techno sound, club beat and everything, as sort of an example of what you're complaining about,

Good potential
As the others have said this song has a lot of potential,
would sound great with a fuller production. I, too, like the
David Byrne-esque vocals. Good stuff
I think with a decent mic and some extra sounds this
could be a really cool track indeed.

i'm just a guy stumbling through life. that stumbling (and some early dragging by my parents) took me all over the world, but i seem to have settled in san francisco for a while at least. i've been on macjams for quite a while now - not sure where... [see more]
