Cloud You Fell From (MJ Live Aid) w/5 Extra Arms & Bud

Description
Originally 5_Extra_Arms (Bob Dorsey) posted a version of this a while back.
Bud and I decided it would be fun to further develop it and see what came about.

With Bob's help, he taught us how to grow 5 extra arms each. That makes 21 arms total and 210 fingers, enabling for us to play everything live. (sorta)

So, beamed via satellite from a abandoned missile silo.......

5_Extra_Arms: lead vocals, fuzzy guitar, bass

Bud: fuzzy guitar, bass, synth bass

Vic: bunches of other guitars, vocoder, drums & back up vocals.

Lyrics
I'm wondering which cloud you fell from
and how'd you land on me?
I hope you didn't hurt your wing
I'll take you home
I'll comfort thee

twisting falling to the floor
somehow pushed out from heaven's door
to the earth
a quick descent
with one wing broken
one wing bent



If I mend your broken wings
enable you to fly again
would you fly to heaven's door
with scattered feathers
on my floor

should I build a blue bird cage
with painted clouds upon the door
a place where you can lay your head
of comfy nest
with so much more

Very cool!
One of Bob's best tunes dressed to the nines!

Ahhhh....My head is simply awash with guitars!

Excellent job gentlemen! Oh, and btw Vic...This is your best DRUM track ever I think.

Bravo!
Vic Holman said 3351 days ago (June 13th, 2008)
Thanks Bro
How could I not put my hands all over Bob's original tune. I can't even remember how many guitar tracks are on this, but it is alot,

I thought I'ld let out my Keith Moon side come out on the drums without the exploding bass drum.

Wise decision bro...
Exploding MIDI bass drums are more trouble than they're worth! Ha ha...

I'm glad that Bud & Bob were ready to jump in on this. It's wild how a song can change through several different hands. It was a blast!

You know
I bet that silo turns out to be the undisclosed bunker they kept hiding Dick Cheney. Or is it the one where they keep the UFO parts?

Where ever it is, it's certainly rockin' with you guys playing away inside. What a great collab. One of you alone is enough talent to choke a horse. There's no telling what all animals you could choke with the combined talent of all three of you. Though, that does seem to be quite a cruel thing to do, choking defenseless animals with your talent. Shame on you all!

So, where was I....? Oh yeah, great song guys! Thanks for playing along!

Hey Joseph
well for D.C., that might explain the clicking of claws scurrying around in the dark corners. One big rat, we thought.

The only thing that got choked were all the guitar necks. Yes, we were brutal and showed no mercy until the strings rusted. That will show them

Hey dude, I know that tune
Bob just plainly rockin' out under stress with fuzzy glowing guitars roaring nearby as the bass maintains a sort soulful, intense balance in a sensational, cool way.

In other words: Great!

Hey Dave
I liked Bob's original so much that it kept running through my head until I had to get it out of my system.

Bud, jumped right in and helped out alot. Crazy how a song can change, right?

Hi Feter
Bob's original song really rocked. After laying some stuff down it was interesting to see it take on a different style and come into it's own.

Vic Holman said 3350 days ago (June 14th, 2008)
Thanks Yeman
I think there is around ten guitar tracks on this. I know it sounds crazy to do that many. But some are playing harmony parts in unison.

Thanks again Yeman!

Bob's original is really cool!

I've been wanting to do something with Bob for a while, but the guy is pretty busy. And it was over due to work with Bud again. This was a great way for use to get our feet wet and leave water tracks all over the place.

Excellent
re-working of Bob's tune - which I love anyway - the vocals on this remind me of the late Nikki Sudden (in a good way). Some seriously good guitar work going on - and vocoder vocal too!

The original is cool. At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I wanted to keep the bones of the original intact. It's always interesting how a song can change after additional stuff is thrown into the mix.

I've been wanting to try out the vocoder for a while and this song really gave it the opportunity.

Guitar frenzy!
This is great, filled with terrific guitar work, great sounds and sparkling playing. Great song, with very nice lyrical imagery and some really cool lines. 'Bunches of other guitars' - love it! Very cool. Nicely done folks. Peace.

bunches of guitars is right. Bud & Bob handled the fuzzed out guitar chords. I did nothing but single line guitar tracks. I think I added around ten of those, then there are 3 bass tracks as well, some of Bob's original and Bud added a great bass & synth bass that really grounded the bottom end.

Bud...
..... you are being WAY to modest.

The bass & synth bass are perfect & in the pocket. and your fuzzed guitar on the left perfectly complimented Bob's on the right. This would not of been the same without you. Plus, you caught that major fuba. It's always my greatest pleasure to play tunes with ya.

You Guys Are The Best!!
Really and truly, you made a great song out of a very simple and shallow idea. Thanks for even bothering to include me. You did all the work and without a doubt, you played one of your most curious leads ever.

Thanks again!

Cloud You Fell From
Wow !! This is a killer track love the very beginning introduction and it just got better and better and just could not get any better. Loved it.

The singing was just great the lyrcs cool too. Well done to one and all.And not forgetting those extra arms and guitars, the drums are awsome .

Peace Dee.
Vic Holman said 3349 days ago (June 15th, 2008)
Thanks Dee
originally there was a different intro on Bob's original. but I got to thinking that something totally different and unexpected would add a little drama.

I'm playing the drums from the keyboard, luckily the 5 extra arms that Bob taught me to grow helped out a lot.

VIDEO!
This screams for an 80's video - oh crap, the vocoder just kicked in WOWWW!!! I absolutely love this; playing in an abandoned missile silo was just a plain Vic Holman stroke of genius as well.
Vic Holman said 3349 days ago (June 15th, 2008)
hey Rik
missile silos have a nice echo to them. but it was to dark for a camera crew.

it took me a while to get around to paying with the vocoder. now I'm going to have to restrain myself from using it all over the place on future tunes.

Effin' brill guys. That vocoder break seals the deal - nicely woven in amongst some top geetar. Vocal mix is great - I can't tell who's doing what in there!

Fine lyrics too - and I don't expect anything less!

I wanna bottle your guitar sound
Vic, I want to make a million by bottling that guitar sound and selling it. It would make a great energy drink, could smooth the frizzies, and probably would be a organic, holistic substitute for Viagra.

Let's work a deal.

A challenge!
Must have been hard to sort that kit out Vic - I think an exploding midi kick drum would have been a rather nice, subtle addition :)

Cool track - the edgy side of Live Aid!

Vic Holman said 3348 days ago (June 16th, 2008)
You're right Neil
exploding bytes and bit rates scattered all over the stage would been quite the show.

I break the drums out to 3 tracks for more flexability. Plus, it's easier to see where everything is since the fog machine has gone into overdrive and obscured everything.

If we all could grow five extra arms, that would take multi-tasking to a whole new level. And sales on double neck guitars would sky rocket.

I t was a pleasure to work with Bud & Bob!

5 Extra Arms original was intense in a punk kinda way. Its interesting to find how a someone else's song can change from a different perspective.
