Lyrics
v1
My head aches,
I'm sure you'll find what you want in your morning paper,
But at least I have -
I'm sure you'll get what you needed a minute later,
If you ask they'll know,
If you know what you want you'll get it,
An' if you ask they'll know,
That I want to be me alone.

Chorus
I'll sit it out,
'Cos I want to.

v2
Time waits,
For no man on the streets ahead - so why not love her?
For at best I have
To define what I want, I guess, and not to suffer,
If you ask, who knows?
If you know what it is don't tell it,
An' if you see you'll know,
That I want to be me alone.

v3
So save me,
From myself and the worlds apathetic nature,
Complacency,
Holds me back from a lack of confidence.
An' if you push you'll lose,
If you pull you will see that it 'ain't much better,
An' if you see you'll know,
That I want to be free alone.

Very cool
Very dynamic intro leading into a very nicely produced song. Such a good alt pop song - watch out for the groupies Alan - I can hear them outside : ) Ending maybe a little too abrupt, but tthe song is excellent, as is your performance.

.. it was something a bit different for me .. bit out from my normal turf so-to-speak and gave me a chance to experiment with some different things, which
was loads of fun. Glad you enjoyed it.

Great
Nice thing. Super nice production. Very well performed.
I'm impressed by it all. If I shold nitpick something (hope you want me to) it would be that the vocals on some places are not hitting the notes, (and guess the ending is not the final version ending).

By the way; your'e getting a great sound out of your Yamaha APX.

Feel free to nitpick away ..
.. thanks Johannes .. send me a note if you've time with the worst sung lines
and I'll try to address them later - I sometimes figure I can get away with
something when I can't lol. Glad the squiffy bits didn't marr the thing overall ..
oh yes, the ending is not really addressed in this version, ran out of time.

I liked this! Fun with that radio-distorted(?) voice and nice overall, only possibly a wee bit too much reverb or something that makes my headphones rumble a bit in a couple of places. No big deal though. Fav'd it...

Tack så mycket ..
.. loads of fun playing with toys. I used both heavy delay and an adjusted
standard 'Megaphone' (that's a really large telephone lol) on the vocals ..which
uses a soft amp I think for the distortion. Can you do me a favour and tell
me on what bits or lyric lines I'm maxing out your headphones .. it's not
so noticeable on my Sennheiser HD212Pro's but I think they are pretty good with bass if I recall; send me a "Note" or e-mail (if you don't want to put it this thread). I got a bit 'carried away' with Sculpture after my hearing test ..lol.

Henke said 3839 days ago (November 18th, 2006)
Like I said
it's really no big deal. I listened on the speakers now and it works quite nicely. I still understand why I said it though, for my taste I think the bass line could possibly blend in more with the rest if you dropped the volume on it like one decibel or so. But I'm not the mixing expert here so do not take my word for it... It is still a great song!

.. got it ..
.. at work I have my older Sennheiser HD445's and I could hear quite
distinctly the buzzing in the R side caused by the bass. Thanks for making
me aware. I'll try this filter suggestion Mungo made to fix it for next version.

truly dug the guitar solo what can i say i'm a guitar junkie. real good production and mix. the ending though was cut off to quick. maybe could hold the chords and let them fade out naturally. great work overall!

.. glad I wasn't sat apon at least .. much appreciated ;o): I love what you achieve
with guitars too. Yup the ending: I was thinking of still keeping it sudden
(with the floor toms 'bam bam' bit .. but effect them to give something to fade
out a bit with .. might work .. this was of course unfinished (ran out of time)) ..
there was alot of other delayed things that showed up annoyingly if I left it
just fade as was .. and it would have taken time I didn't have to sort that).

Glad you stopped by.

Very nice...
I love the intro, that bass line is exciting. Great contrast when the guitar comes in. Did you ever listen to Tonio K.? Your song reminded me of his great stuff from the early nineties. Of course, yours is a fresher approach, with the synth sounds. Nice guitar solo, by the way. I love the harmony there. This is a great pop song!

.. glad you enjoyed it. Tonio K I haven't heard, please send me a Note with some
of the titles and I'll check it out. This was also compared to Ed Kuepper ..(?)
it's flattering I'm sure ..I'll need to hear these fellows - hopefully something
on iTunes I can get. Glad it was a bit fresher sound now than early 90's .. although this song was written in the early 90's curiously enough - bound to retain some of that quality. Thanks again.

Ars longa, vita brevis.
Cameron said 3839 days ago (November 18th, 2006)
Great pacing!
I like the intake of breath at the beginning, followed by the catchy beat. The bass combined with the tasteful drums provide an energetic underpinning to the song.

Pacing is excellent with the gradual addition of guitar layers leading to the vocals. The guitar solo just past the middle occured at the perfect moment.

I don't know anything about the technical aspects of recording and mixing vocals, but I will say that my ears sometimes wanted more of a "live", "sparkling" vocal sound to balance the full, lush accomaniment. The vocals were almost incidental during the "busiest" moments.

But taken altogether, this is a very successful pop song, and I was particularly impressed with its pacing and combination of instruments. Great sound!
Check out my latest song called Trio for Horn, Violin & Piano
apb said 3834 days ago (November 23rd, 2006)
Breathe in ..
..breathe out ;o)... thanks for your kind words and fine comments. Vocals
I know I have loads of room for improving .. er .. like practicing would help
and trying more ways of recording, perhaps get another mic too and try two placed a bit differently .. for now I have hit one setting which I'm fairly happy with and keep using that ..lol .so for now turning a more sparkly/live sound
into a reality is a bit out of reach of my skills I'm afraid ..

I might also try a collab and get someone else to mix/EQ my vocals .. then ask
them for all the settings they used .. lol .. hmm .. that would be a nice cheat
lol. Man, I still just hate doing vocals .. this was a bit more fun as I played
a bit with effects on my efforts.

.. glad you enjoyed it - I was deliberately working on the build-up in this (as this song lends itself to that quite well) and pleased that job was noticed. I seem
to have edged into 'rumbleton' on the bass production though ..lol.

I love the breath
The beginning of the song is very catchy and interesting. I'm always a fan of real sounds in music. The guitar solo is great. The bass was just a bit rumbly on my headphones in places as well - maybe it will be better on the speakers. I agree that the ending is a bit abrupt. Overall, a great song - very original! Well done.

Thanks Laura
glad you enjoyed it .. even though the bass I over-cooked a bit .. it is very
low and makes my head rumble a bit too, it's also meant to pulse a bit ... like the "headache" the song opens with mentioning .. the solo is one of my
'minimalist' efforts and going for mood and expression rather than how many
notes can I play in a scale per sec kindof thing .. 'cos I'm not good at that
anyway .. lol.

I got called away this morning
and I wasn't finished... I also love the inro the arrangment and placement of the guitars is great and when the drums come in it really takes off... I found the ending a bit abrupt... I would'nt mind a fade on this... with a very atherial guitar and vocal fade

apb said 3836 days ago (November 21st, 2006)
Thanks alot Scott
very kind words ..glad you stopped by .. twice .. lol .. and finished. I do
my best to try something a bit different .. or by putting myself in a
less familiar genre, try to put my touch to that .. hopefully the result is
something at least a bit different.

Very pleased the 'build-up' approach/arrangement style created a
compelling listen.

Yes .. the ending .. well .. you know how it is .. to v3! (see above reply on
Vic's comment for how I plan to go about it).

Thanks again - too kind.

Cool
Nice arrangement, esp. with the vocals. Really like the tune, nice bouncy pop feel to it. Cool lyrics, nice guitar lead. This is a great posting. Thanks. By the way, there's a pop at the end that doesn't sound like it should be there to me.

apb said 3834 days ago (November 23rd, 2006)
Thanks again for stopping in ..
.. glad you liked the vocal arrangement: I was going for some sort of differentiation within one person, like two trains of thought or conscience
and sub-conscience, something you might say or something you might just
think .. that are more split at the 'headache' start and begin to merge to
one for the last verse .. either that .. or just me playing with effects .. lol.

Yeah .. that 'pop' at the end was to get the song to qualify for this genre. ;o)

Cheers ..
..thanks for your comments - on the Vox/Fx Vox: I was going for the Fx vocals sounding a little more distant than the main vox in the verses, for the reason I mention above. I will bring 'em up a notch in v3 as I agree in the 2nd verse
they have sunk more than they should. The delayed Vox in the chorus also dip a
little in db on the first iteration (which is all that is heard normally) .. I can also
try to even that out a bit with some automation points. Well spotted and
thanks again.

Very Cool
I like all the elements here.
Just a small production note - In a addition to what others mentioned, if you want to, you should be able to get the bass less to be less 'rumbly/woofy/blurry' if you go into logic and insert a "Channel EQ" to one of the following Factory>Miscellaneous EQ Tools>Low Cut 30 Hz or Low Cut 50 Hz or Low Cut 60 Hz (listen and choose the one that makes the bass/overall mix more clear without taking away too much of its oomph. I'm assuming here that you're using Logic for the final mix and not GarageBand. Using the Low Cut filter to add clarity to the mix is something that McBoy pointed out and taught me on a piece that we worked on together.
apb said 3834 days ago (November 23rd, 2006)
Cheers Bill ..
thanks for passing on that tip/trick. I will probably come back to alot
of tunes and master in Logic (once I figure my way around that) .. for now
I guess I can try the AU thangs in GB v3.0.4 .. there is some Low/High cut filters
in GB too if I recall correctly.. and see if I like the results .. to v3! oh ..and thanks for reading and answering my Tonio K question: I just tried iTunes (sweden store) and only found "Romeo Unchained" released 2005 material copyrighted 1986 .. and it's under genre religious ..hmm *rubs chin*.

That's Interesting
Tonio K's Romeo Unchained is listed under Christian & Gospel in the US iTunes store and is the only one available. I think that the music is being labelled "Christian" because the record label that released the album is known for producing Christian music. He's a Christian artist in the same way an artist like Johnny Cash could be considered a Christian artist. He sometimes addresses religious themes, but it's not his focus.

Sweet
As usual I'm a latecomer to the party ... I've been away from MJ for a few weeks. It's a very enjoyable song, as I've come to expect from you, and beautifully played and sung. I'm not much of a production expert (as is immediately obvious in my music) but it sounds to me like some of the elements are maxed-out in places and trying to dominate each other ... I might be inclined to subdue the mix just a little. It's good though.

I have a Yamaha APX too but mine's an 11-string. They're lovely guitars, in't they?

..late ;o) thanks for your continued curiosity. Your
right of course, I've over-cooked this one a bit in
nearly all areas - I have some things to fix.

11-string? You've gone and bust one again? lol .. I like
Yamaha APXs myself .. otherwise I wouldn't have forked out
the 800 quid or so I did when it was bought new in '96.

I will experiment with recording it with mic's instead ..
on my list.

Bust one again? I haven't even got round to replacing the one I bust a year ago! It's just too easy to live without them. When I'm down to 10 I'll reluctantly drag myself down the music shop.

I can recommend trying the APX with an ambient mic ... I never realised how lovely it sounded until I tried that.

Thanks mate
.. at that time of composing this (and much of what I've
posted so far), writing something that was catchy was in
much consideration - simple, rememberable, whistle after
gig melodies. Very pleased you like my quite 'run of the mill' stuff in comparison to yours. Who knows, when I
actually sit down and write something completely knew
from scratch, how it will end up - I want to absorb the
'new tools' of the trade, to be able to make use of them
in novel ways - something I think you do extremely well.

Ah .. regional variations
I'm not Swedish. English is my first language, kind-of ..lol.
I was using the (not so widely accepted it seems)
form 2. definition see:http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=squiffy

to which I might also venture: "askew" but well they did offer 'lopsided'. I meant 'slightly wrong' or 'not quite correct' .. this 'dubious nature/quality' thing or statement
is what I think form 3. is trying (badly) to express.

.. of course it is commonly accepted to mean 'slightly inebriated'.

Indeed, "beer goggles" I believe is the effect you are refering too.

Glad you liked the tune! (don't worry - noone understands
half of what I'm on about, including me)

conscience/sub-conscience schizophrenia thrown in as a lyrical rhetoric device (perhaps megaphone wasn't the way to go .. hahaha), opening with 'yet another hangover'.. without ending up sounding like just a 'spoilt brat'... which I sometimes wonder about myself on that 'cos I want too' line. I chose that old picture as it seemed to visualise times past, when 'sitting this one out' was as popular as taking part in the sexual attraction, mating game that often is what the dance floor is about these days.

I think I will sort the ending and bring the acoustic down a smidge and make some of the other fixes mentioned to this .. er, sometime this year ;o).

btw .. I noticed you've figured out how to 'fav' songs ok by clicking the heart on the song page- did you know that to fav the artist, you just click the heart on said artists page? - then you'll appear as a "fan" of that artist for all of MJ to see .. nudge, nudge, hint, hint, say no more ;o) .. you'll also then see some options to receive e-mail notices (if you want) when they upload new songs - handy to know and I'm just kidding - don't fan me just 'cos I said.

Tack så mycket Fredrik ..
.. I plan to bring the acoustic down a smidge. The guitars aren't supposed to be lead instrument in any way in this song but as a guitarist they sometimes end up a bit like that in my first mixes. I liked to try something with a bit more electronic sounds, it was fun.
