Description
I couldn't figure out how to replace the song without deleting all the comments, so here it is again. There was one suggestion by Mark Holbrook that I raise Char's vocals Which I agreed with and here is the new mix. I also thought that some of the sound effects were not necessary - so I took a couple of them out... I went to the Chat to ask the MJ Chorus how to just replace the song and ended up agreeing to do a collaboration with some other Iggies around here: Iggy, (I.G.M.) Jiggy (Jiguma) and me, Wiggy. APB (Biggie) is gonna produce.... he heeee... and so it goes ! Crazy man....
crazy. Char colored the black and white photo above and I think it captures the the feel of the song.... there she goes again; taking things in all different directions... who knew?

Most everything are loops and such- other than the organ, vocals and sax
I think we have a 'thing' here. The three of us are planning to do more together.... cool, man... cool!
Many thanks to Char and her vocal prowess and her writing talents.
Thanks to Andy-bm for his great organ solo and guidance during and after.

Lyrics
Too much of a good thing
And evil, you'll find
Stare into the sun long
And it'll burn you blind
The people you call on
To play all your games
Are easy to use when
You don't know their names
I'm alone and empty
I'm so sick of pain
Too afraid to relax
Have nothing to gain
Misery surrounds me
I'll share with you all
Adam bit that apple
We deal with the fall.

No Eden Here!

I Love the way
everything falls off Just before Char begins to sing and it is just the bass. Again, wow what a track. Hey you guys clean up nicely. Thanks.

This came out cool
I like that you still left the thunderclap in their. Nice job mixing my organ part! This whole mix sounds cleaner to me. More definition for Char and your Sax.

Wo - what a great comment from you... I I pulled down the master track a bit and nudged Char vocal region a couple of points.... thats about all I did. I am in the learning curve on this mastering. Any help from the MJChorus would be appreciated.

You killed these vocals, Char. Wonderful job. This is the most free I've heard you when you sing. So well done... Congratulations.

Wonderful backing track, too, guys.

It was the music.
I had fun with it, pretending I was in a beatnik dive, wearing a turtleneck and a beret. I released my inner boogie chick. I even snapped my fingers in front of the mic. Thanks.:)

The lyrics
really fit the music, and Char delivers them so well! Andy, the tenor sax is great! I don't know how I missed the first one, but went back to listen. Good call, Andy; it is better without the effects, imo... This is great, Igs.

Chars delivery is over the top... she sent me 2 other totally different written vocal tracks and although they were great I just told her to keep 'em coming... I think she got frustrated at me and so was topping out - it worked.... This song is on it's own journey now and I am just sittin here waving bye bye [sniff] :`(

apb said 3101 days ago (April 23rd, 2009)
Quite a mash up

loved the vocals and sax. The 'mash-up' result is a tad dis-jointed for my tastes, and still the FX are a bit too "stock GB library". If you must use some samples, try the freesound project website and something a little subtler or tasteful. (says the guy who has a rapping chicken lol).

Also, there's a synth melody bit that starts at 03:12 that sounds like Yes' "Owner of a lonely heart". Watch out- here's a member here! :D Enjoyed it guys and gal. Fun collab.

APB
great comment... the lonely heart groove - now that you mention it you're right and could trump with ' nothing new under the sun' but most of all i got it from a GB loop somewhere... unintentional. I agree - overuse of effects of any kind sounds trite... I beleive you have referred me to the freesound site before - I forgot about that. thanks!

funky and edgy
a highly energetic funky vibe is expressed throughout this track
reminds me of jerry martin's work in its liveliness at certain points but this is a very original tune
your unique high brow idiosyncratic style compliments so well with char's soulful voice

thanks for creating & sharing this track!!
