right now we should be riding the bikes
left out on the porch
they're rusting outside
oh yeah, we should be having a good time

right now we should be sleeping in late
wake up in the breeze at the end of the day
oh yeah, we should be having a good time

why shouldn't we have a good time honey?
why shouldn't we have a good, good, good, good time?

right now we should be down at the spring
jumping into the water from the tire swing
oh yeah, we should be having a good time

right now we should be up in the loft
with the radio playing and our carhartts off
oh yeah, we should be having a good time

why shouldn't we have a good time honey?
why shouldn't we have a good, good, good, good time?

Good Time
Chinga chinga guitars and horns are fun.

What a cool song!

So are you just sitting there doing these songs alone in GarageBand or what? I wanna know more about you and your process as I've just FAVED you.

You're a very talented songwriter.

Welcome to MacJams!

That's pretty much it - me and my ibook. I've always been into that Ian MacKaye D.I.Y. ideal and i got into my profession (computer programming) by synth / drum machine programming as a kid so I naturally gravitated toward digital music. I tried a few other programs but none were as cheap and effective as GarageBand. I'd like to use Logic Pro but can't afford it. So that's the Why. The how - I use an ibook G4 with GarageBand, an M-Audio interface and Shure SM57 mics. For guitars I like cheap and interesting - my current favorite is an Oscar Schmidt OE-30 Delta King. Same for bass - I use a Squire Bronco and mandolin - I use a low end Epiphone. I'm into old Casio keyboards and I still use an old Peavey DPM that I pawned my car for back in the 80's. As far as composition goes, I really don't have a method - some songs I begin with a vocal scratch recording and a click track, then add bass and piano. Others I'll start more traditionally with a guitar riff. I know that all my songs have a "sound" but I couldn't really explain how - except that I fixate on phrasing - musically and vocally - that old novelist ideal from the 30's - "say it different" - I try to apply that to each part of every song.

So that's it. Thanks for your great comments - very cool that the songs have that affect. By the way, it seems that MacJams encourages collaboration - something I havn't done in years. If you ever want to work together on something just let me know. I work slowly because I don't have much time - I have to work around the job/wife/kid/horses etc - we're a rural family - but I get it done eventually.

My gosh what a great song.
I love melodic rock music and that's what you do so well. Should be #1 hits if the world worked properly.
great singing too. Your stuff reminds me a bit of some of the stuff that came out on Kindercore records, including one of my all time favourites Masters of the Hemisphere.

Oh I see!
You posted a bunch of songs at the same time. That's a good way to get your songs lost in oblivion. But you probably realize that now.

You could always pull them and repost them so they get more listens.

Another great tune.

We really must do a collab!

yeah man any time. the problem with me and collabs is that anything i touch turns into a tempie tune. so if you don't mind me adding horns and whistles and handclaps and bah bah bah's to it, just send me a tune and we can build it together.

Good Time (Why Shouldn't We?)
This has a cool early XTC vibe, when they were a bit closer to their punk roots. Another great chorus. I like that rubbery guitar adding color in my right ear.
