Description
This is one of the quickest I've done. I used drum and electric piano loops, then learned the chords and played them myself. Drum loops too and the guitar solos. Just a fun song about a fictional nightclub, though I have frequented some in the past with a similar 'feel'. Hope you like this 'cheeky little number' it should make you shimmy a little LOL.

Lyrics
The Blue Flamingo

‘Blue Flamingo’ is the name of the place; once through the door you disappear with no trace,
Hopes are high coz the lights are low,
Eyes seem to follow you wherever you go.
You feel the rhythm, the pulsin’ rhythm,
It kinda’ holds you, and then enfolds you,
Blue-ue blue Flamingo, blue-ue Flamingo,

People on the dance floor swing and sway, beckon you to join them in their strange melee,
Twistin’ writhin’ like they’re in a trance,
That’s the way it gets you when you start to dance,
It’s so hypnotic and so erotic,
The way they’re movin’ looks so exotic,
Blue-ue, blue Flamingo, blue Flamingo.

You’d swear the way yjey look that they were takin’ stuff,
Yet the beat’s the only thing they can’t get enough,
It drives ‘em crazy, their minds go hazy,
The way they dance you can’t call them lazy,
Blue-ue, blue Flamingo, blue Flamingo.

Short Instrumental.

Dance on your own, nobody cares,
Shake-a-shake your booty or dance in pairs,
Have a nice drink to make you cool,
If that doesn’t work just jump in the pool,
Blue-ue Flamingo, blue Flamingo.

The name of the place is ‘The Blue Flamingo’,
Swarming with people wherever you go,
So Hypnotic, So Erotic,, Everybody dancin’ it’s so erotic,
Ad Lib. To end

Maurice Vizard.

I'm so there
Makes me think of a place I used to go in Dublin years ago. Can't remember the name, but it had that vibe that made me feel I was entering some kind of ultra-sophisticated world of pleasure! It was probably pretty ratty and rundown, but I was young and foolish then (as opposed to old and foolish now...) and though it was the height of coolness. Love the vocal on this - suave and sophisticated - and great use of loops and percussion (that's a really nice groove you've got going on there!). Very cool. It did indeed make me shimmy! Nice one, Maurice. Peace.

Ok now Maurice
fess up, where is this place. I want to go there but I can't find it when I Google it. Is it some kind of secret place like an old Speakeazy or something.

Great track my friend, with a very easy going relaxed feel to it. Love the relaxed way you did the vocal too.

Thanks for posting this one Maurice.

Really, really
really, really, really entertaining, provocative and reminiscent of several major bands with fame and fortune. I guess your time is just around the corner. The word smithing on this is a hoot and put a great smily face on me, so I had to listen to it again. Guess I'll have to have a download with this one.

Great Fun Track
Love the little rhythm you have created here. Kudos as well for learning the chords to the piano and guitar. This is a really good track and brilliant lyrics esp the ad libbing at the end, very good. Nice one Morice.

Thanks for
dropping by Keith. I'm pleased you enjoyed it, but though I learned the piano bit I can't lay claim to the guitar parts which were loops chopped and pieced ( my fingers just aren't that dextrous I'm afraid). Again thanks for calling and the nice words, regards M

Blue Flamingo
Maurice...
You have such a distinctive style, man. What a mellow-sounding number that's sung with your characteristically controlled voice. What a wonderful 60s-ish number. Get some Leslie speakers in there and you will be set. You sound like you are having such a great time writing and singing these songs ... and it is palpable. You are at the top of your game, Maurice. Congratulations on such a wonderful composition. Just wonderful.
Peace.

"Cheeky Little Numbers", I like the picture you paint with this one, reminds of this place I used to know that served rum drinks in gold fish bowls among tiki statues and torches. Cool groove.
