Sleepyhead

Description
This is the first of two songs i've been working on about shacking up with a girl for the first time, you know where your both trying to figure out how the deal works out. We've had a couple "chinook" type warm days that got me thinking about Spring, and for some reason Spring always reminds me of my first couple apartments/relationships. So anyway I started this particular tune a while back and then let it sit because I couldn't get it the way I wanted it. I was trying to do a Rancid type beat/melody/story with Minutement type guitar, where the bass falls in and out etc. Anyway I think I got it the way I want it now so here you go. The second song in the set will be along in a bit.

Lyrics
Wake up sleepyhead
roll your bones out of bed
slept late again and now we gotta rush around
you were dreamin of someplace great
and it sucks to be awake
but this is what we got and girl we got to make a go

cause we got love love love we got love
we got love love love we got love
we got love

Come on wake up sweetheart
my head is ringin like a cheap guitar
I can't be late again for work we got to leave on time
You were dreamin about last night
how for a little while the world was alright
but this is what we got so girl we gotta make a go

cause we got love love love we got love
we got love love love we got love
we got love

my wake up song
for xmass i got one of those fangdangled little ipod players that has the ability to fade in at the appointed hour and wake me from my slumbers. I would bet, that if I'm not out of the shower by the one minute mark, I'm probably dead :-) Need to be out in time to hear the solo, which is excellent btw. Absolutely love the vocal parts in the beginning. Too cool you

alarming
you know dude I never thought of this as a wakeup song but now that you mention it, seems obvious...would it be narcissistic if I tried that? really glad you liked it - never know how people will respond to things like a Capella first verses and hillbilly yanks shouting Oi!

Can always rely
on you to come up with something very different and extremely classy. Wonderful vocals and great music/production.
You really have pop music cracked and should be earning mega money.
Cheers

cracked pop
man every time I think i'm doing something worthwhile i listen to Good Vibrations and remind myself what a rank amateur I am. But i'd take the mega money regardless lol. And what about you Dr. Ruth...how do you follow that "sex" tune? Can't wait to hear...

cool
man those backups are cool. this is a classic tune. i wish that you could be putting all these out as 7" singles, your tunes are perfect for that medium. great track (love the horns).

F%$* me!
this is awesome man. really. so refreshingly original. i love how it starts off with just you then culminates into this huge celebratory climax. the BG vox are outstanding and I love the guitars and ESPECIALLY the horns (turn em up!). Can't wait to hear the next one

LOL! Thanks dude! MJ is very cool - i can just do my own strange thing and there are people here who dig it. I'll revisit the horns on the version I post on my website. Thanks again for the listen boss.

curious
contrast between your voice, that has nothing agressive, and the punkish music. It gives the feeling of the urgency of the working day as something somewhat external to the character in the song, who seems still half in his interrupted dream. Maybe I'm dreaming this up.

addictive as usual.

curious
i always wanted to be a punk but it just isn't in me - i was always a punk in my own mind, but that was about it. so you're right - very cool insight, as usual. Thanks for the listen!

This is so fresh and energetic; love how it builds up with the bass, then lead, then horns. Awesome tune.

catching up
Hey, another Tempie song I missed.
Very original sound. Many smile-inducing moments as usual, esp. towards the end.
I really like when that loud bass-y sound comes in. and the ending of course is awesome.
Keep 'em coming! I see in one of your comments you have a website? I'll have to google that.
Cheers, Relic.

hey glad you liked it! You were new (to me) so I checked out your profile - I also live in the mountains, but on the east coast. I dig those jammers in your avatar pic - sweet! Also dig the record player - I had one like that too - favorite 45 was "yummy yummy yummy I got love in my tummy" by Ohio Express.
