Description
Stumbled across the name Brenda Govenda (spelt slightly differently) at work the other day and thought what a great name for a song!
It was only after it was finished that I thought I might have subconciously been thinking of the lady above.
Mixed with headphones.

Lyrics

Brenda Govenda Had No Life
Lived In Squalor No One's Wife
Hold On Tightly
Hold On Tight
I'm Gonna Find a Way Boogaloo
Let Her Worries Go
I'm Gonna Find a Way Someday
Let Her Have Her Day

Watch Out Boogaloo
Watch Out Now
Watch Out Boogaloo
Gonna Watch Them Shout
Hey Hey Momma
Hey Hey Girl
Hey Hey Momma
Hey Hey Girl

Brenda Govenda Wants To Shine
Step Out Striding Feel So Fine
Come On Brenda Lets See You Fly
Come On Brenda Lets See You Try
Boogaloo...

(Brenda, Brenda Don't You be a Loser)
(Brenda Govenda, Hold On Tightly)

Great song Len, it's amazing what inspires you to write a song and I bet your little note book came out when you stumbled across this name!
There is so much here and lots to listen to, some great sounds. I hear something different every time I play this. I love the vocals and the guitars are superb, lovely tone with some great effects used.
You are very creastive Len and you always come up with something different everytime.
Great production and very much enjoyed, one of your best!

One that was waiting to be had... And all the while, shaking it like I shouldn't...

Listner WARNING LABEL should read:

CAUTION: Do not operate w/ heavy thoughts while listening!

May cause Ambiguous Multi-Directional up effects some of which are not unlike, freaky internal echoed giggles, typically psychedelic in nature. For most, this is the afterglow. Giggles may reverberate upwards to down then, side to side with a bit of a dirty yet, a bit of a soulful bounce all happening within the listeners innards. The "glow" is known to last for disturbingly long periods of time after listening. This is desired. Delusional efflorescence may occur with some listeners, but this is a groovy thing though, it is recognized by a lucky few.

Your music tends to be unfit for public speak... Approved!

Hangn on the edge of my unearthly imaginary seat while patiently awaiting your next off blast...

Jumpin Jackedy Jack...

The writing/composing/performing/mixing/bs and stuff, and all things that are expected to be gooder than good on this, they are!

Thanks! Cheers! Dion

Very stylishly done piece or music. The effect you have applied to the vocals is very interesting. You know if you don't mind me saying so this piece has an almost eerie feel to it. Very unique and original - thank you for sharing this with us.

see the David Essex thing coming - but I can't deny some similarities.
Might be easier to say what I didn't use on the vocals. Basically a clean track then routed to five aux tracks with different tweaked logic presets and different pans. I just twiddle and twiddle like mad.
Thanks for the interest and comment.

(quite late in but very welcome) .. and I love the way you weave away with your vocals at times .. in a very "Len" way .. great original vocal imo, just some shades of David Essex.

Really pleased you did that - never heard it before - great song.
In a couple of places I had a flashback to when I used to see the Hari Krishner mob singing and dancing along in the street many years ago. I always had an urge to just join the end of their line and go merrily off with them. Maybe I should have, who knows?
I was brought up in Bethnal Green, East London. The old fire station there was actually bought by George Harrison many years ago and given to them. It is still their London Headquarters I believe.

Congratulations on a nifty post. Love the dropped vocal note on "boogaloo". Psychedelic! I hear a bit of David E, a bit of Jim Morrison, and lots of other stuff. This gets better and better as it moves on.
Excellent stuff Len!

I'm actually
on quite a strict diet at the moment Neil and hoping that it won't notice so much in the future.
I started off with just improvised vocals on this without knowing where I was going with it. I found myself singing boogaloo quite a few times and just had to leave it in, couldn't really think of a word to replace it that worked.
Thanks very much for the great comment.

Love that heavy bassline (obviously!!). This is one of my faves of yours up to now, it's really funked up. Couldn't make out the lyrics very clearly, but the muddied vocal works with the rest of the sound, so that works. I like the guitars that come in half way through, really give it a lift. Good stuff!!!

Good
song.
Very pounding rythm and strong a weird vocals.They get even weirded (and better) when they get doubletracked.
Some of the best songs I listen on macjams lately were mixed on heaphones.Guess I will give my next one a try.

Thanks for
the visit, listen and comment - appreciated. I have been very happy with the AKG 701's that I am now using, they give a very natural and neutral sound. I don't have any chance to mix with monitors because I don't have a dedicated room as a studio and it would annoy other people to just keep hearing the same song over and over.
Thanks again (I will catch up with your songs soon).

I wonder
if she's related to Scarborough Barbara? this moves an unusual gait - this of course is in keeping with the subject - as it creates a picture. I liked the change at about 3:50 ish - nice contrast. Good production again, works well on the old flat response auratones - will try it through the Yamahas presently.

Good work Len, enjoyed very much. tell you what would have sounded nice - some female voice dialog going out over the fade - just a thought 'cos nothing needs changing at all really.

Catchy melody
carrying the song. Cool lyrics -- though I probably couldn't get them through the distortion without help. I like what is going on about 2:12, just before and including the guitar break, the backing vocals. Nice move! This song is just very lush, like a lot of yours. Your voice works very well in layers.

Rock On!
If Marilyn Manson had covered the Essex classic instead of Tainted Love, he might have produced something like this, Len! The thing I love is the story behind the song - just seeing a name inspired you to come up with such a powerful piece of writing. You have proved once more that you are a thinker and a do-er which is a rare but welcome combo.

Apologies for the delay in catching up - but it was well worth the wait. Another fine free song for the colección, me amigo! DLd as per...

Perfecly overproduced!
This is a great headphone mix of an overproduced song. (I say overproduced and I mean it as a compliment) The lush soundstage here is perfect for the vocals. A lot to focus the magnifying glass of my ears on.

Love the treatment of the bass line.
Vocals have really nice stuff going on in the delay in the right channel and I hear some stuff going on just to the left of center that sounds like it might be part of the vocal reverb tale that is really cool too.

The strait up counter melody with "hold on tight" as the main line just before the key change is a nice touch too with its build.

I even like the over the top and overly-long fade that sounds like it is not a master fade but fading of the individual tracks leaving the voice. Cool stuff. Nice production touches.
