Description
man I really hate the version of this tune that I posted yesterday. It's flatter than last night's Genny Cream Ale and I apologize for even posting it. So here's the real deal, with Nitrous. And you know Ridd, yesterday I thought about adding engine noises but then thought that was too cheesey, and then last night I realized tempie is all ABOUT cheese so I added some cool drag sounds to the break, thanks for the suggestion. And Paddy do you really have a brera s? Cause if so I am muy jealouso about that. My wife has a v50 T5 that I hoon around in but I could really bend that brera into a pretzel, maybe I need to plan a trip to the UK. if you see a redneck at your door, it's me...

Lyrics
you think you're cherry baby
that might be true
pretty wheels and a factory tune
you're daddy spent the money
i spent knuckles and sweat
lets line em up at the tree
and see what that'll get

3-2-1 and we let the ponies run
you're spinning in the breeze
while my slicks are stickin mightily
2-3-4 power shift and shut the door
i hear your engine whine
but you're runnin out of time
and you know
first place is better than best in show

you think you're cherry baby
that might be true
body kit and cat-back tubes
you're daddy spent the money
i spent knuckles and sweat
let's line em up at the tree
and see what that'll get

Some extra goodies
and rounder sound in there for sure. The handclaps are a highlight. But you're plum bonkers if you think the other version was sour. The song itself is stronger than stud horse piss with the foam farted off. That's pretty strong.

grungie
thanks Feter. At first I added a lot more grunge but then peeled it off trying to get that 60's beach sound. More grunge would definitely sound cool live. thanks for the listen!

Only listened to the
first version an hour or so ago and loved it. This is definitely a more vibrant mix. Great stuff.
Cheers

Vic Holman said 2893 days ago (July 25th, 2009)
actually
she'll leave tire tracks across your back is a line from hendrix's song crosstown traffic. I don't know if he would care at this stage in his life.

Ridin in my car
Very cool track. Like the last version but this IS EVEN BETTER. Love your vocal mojo with the high and low voices mixed. Took my right through the gears and up to highway speed. You can write 'em, bud.

Favorite car tracks from modern era: NRBQ's "Ridin in My Car, "Rain At The Drive In", "Me and The Boys". Do you know those guys? Check 'em out.

Gotta lyric in progress: 'you're so cherry, you're so sweet, from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet". Afraid to post now 'cuz you're owning' the cherry thing"

NRBQ
man thanks for turning me on to NRBQ. the name looks and sounds familiar but i don't think i've ever heard them.

really glad you liked the tune, and definitely go for it with your cherry lyric...i just dig on anything remotely 50's...as someone who never knew a world without rock and roll on the radio, I can't imagine being there when it was BORN (commercially). how cool would that have been?

What's up?
This has been up for a while in terms of MJ and not so many plays? Love the quirkiness going on here. Dynamic, unlike my last tunes.

Smiles all the way. :=)

read, set....
Go!
I dig the drag sounds actually. Glad you kept them in. I like the fact that you kept it sparse, very well done. The hands claps are perfect. The group chant in the chorus totally rock and the 4 note acoustic solo is killer in a very very retrained kinda way. Cool.

restrained
there's that old art myth about the writer that was such a thorough editor that they ended up deleting the book altogether, some kind of zen ideal or something, anyway there's always the danger of being that guy. i felt i was pushing it with the solo but figured there were enough supporting bits to keep it interesting. glad it worked but i'll have to let loose on the next tune...

Still sounds like the Osmonds...
... .
Awesome remix man. Just feels fuller and definitely gets the cheese quotient right. If the first version was a tasty, yet low fat white spreadable, this is the full on Gorgonzola.
Stay stinky!

cheese
one of the best things about organized drag racing is the bad (great) food, always including lots of cheese (whiz).

rev it up
nicely done sir. I wish I knew about cars sometimes. Theres beauty, mystique and danger all wrapped up in summers nights there. What little I know about music is what I like, and that would include all Tempie tunes :-) A genre all unto itself.

thanks man. funny thing about cars is that they're a mystery until you take one apart for the first time, and then you realize it's just a big toaster. glad you liked the tune and thanks for giving it a listen!

dude get your license and rent a zippy car and drive through the countryside every now and again. it's just another fun thing to do, another interesting experience to have had before you ride the shortbus to the ninth planet.

What kind of nitrous are you on? Both are great. This has a really interesting sound. Very retro-forward -- 007 in 3063!
