Description
Hey y'all! Okay, so I upgraded to Mac Leopard recently, and got that great "Magic" thing on my GarageBand. So, one night I sat down and wrote 7 songs using the "formula." All loops, all manipulated. I am cracking up! This is my favorite, it's a country tune, and while you listen to it, just picture a girl (someone like me maybe?) up on stage singing her heart out, and a buxom blonde walking around the bar with all eyes on her. I'm singing this song to that little harlot. God love 'er.

This is a little levity for once!

Thanks for listening!

Stacey

Lyrics
Well I was never good at bein
the kind of girl I was always seein'
on the arms of them ol' cowboys
with their faded Levi's and big boy toys
and I knew, I always knew
I should get me a bottle of bleach.

You look like the kind of girl
I could learn a few things from
won't you teach me?

You see, I grew up with a faded rose
on the end of my upturned nose
readin' books and playin' wise
stayin' away from those nasty guys
'cause I knew, yeah I always knew
they were so far out of my reach.

You look like the kind of girl
I could learn a few things from
won't you teach me?

I told myself I'd be alright
keep my little heart locked up tight
away from predatory hands
sociopaths and one-night-stands 'cause I knew
yeah I always knew
I'd never practice what I preach.

You look like the kind of girl
I could learn a few things from
won't you teach me?

Sounds like a hit, Stacy...
And those Nashville guys aren't so far removed from the realm of Magic GarageBand...

This is a very convincing demo. Start marketing it.

Nice fluffy pseudo-country country tune.

Perhaps the first time I've seen the word *sociopath* in a lyric, but most likely appropriate in this circumstance. lol

With some pedal steel work and some good electric country licks, this could catch on. ;)

What a fool I am...
Last night I was listening to a lot of older songs, one of which was your song, "I Miss You". This one is as fun as that one was beautiful.

Very cool song- level of sarcasm and humor was just right for a country song.

magic band
Very cool. I think the fact that you wrote the song around a magic band lick is very impressive. And I also thought that "predatory" and "sociopath" were unlikely choices for a country lyric (another reviewer commented on "sociopath"), but you managed to slip them in pretty effectively.

A whole lot of creativity demonstrated here .... well done!

Changes my mind about loops, too!
This is a great song! Imagine all those guys with tens of thousands of dollars in studio equipment, and here you outdo them at home! Very original lyrics!
