You're Breaking My Heart


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I was working on mixing this song today, which I've had around for a few years, and decided to post it. Not my usual sound and some Dr. Suess lyrics- Not my most creative thing. But, that was my intent. Just lay it out there. And it turned out to be OK.
Yeah, it's not my strongest, but good enough to not be posted at Son-of-lavalamp.

Don't take it too seriously and crank it!

Lyrics
You’re Breaking My Heart

Think of all the things you did before
You shut down all the windows and broke down the door
To my heart
We should’ve never been apart
Now I’m telling you, you, you, you don’t go

You’re breaking my heart 2x’s

Think of all the times you tried to leave
You made me keep on begging till I got down on my knees
And I tried
I didn’t want our love to die
Now I’m telling you, you, you, you don’t go

You’re breaking my heart 2x’s

Couldn’t find the pieces and it made you mad
Good times have the habit of going bad
And that’s sad
I never tried to make you mad
Now I’m telling you, you, you, you don’t go

You’re breaking my heart 2x’s

Sometimes I wonder if you’re coming back
I’m keeping my distance and that’s a fact
So don’t hold your breath
You’re gonna’ be the death of me, me, me, me you’ll see

You’re breaking my heart 2x’s

Cranked
I cranked it. Sort of Ramones like. I really liking the drums on this. I like the tom fills and beat. And see I like to end songs different too. The mix sounds good to me. But dont listen to me. I like lo-fi. !!

breaking my heart
big sense of raw power here. The guitars sound terrific. They speak as one :-) and the tribal beat just keeps the whole tune whipping forward. The beginning and the end kept me guessing a little. Nicely done

the heart of it all
cool intro and outro Dave. the detuning effect is slick

the rest of the song flies! a bit of ramones style, quite pop punk.

sorry. I'll have to take it seriously because i like this one a lot.

I like
the way the guitars play against the drums. I never listened to the Ramones as far as I know, but this has a sort of "punk for grownups" sound :) It must be something I ate last night, but everything I've heard this morning (OK, so just this and one other tune) reminds me of Roxy Music somehow - this is no exception.
Cool post Dave.
Outro (and intro) are especially good.

lavaramones
great punk/garage feel, great energy man, great heart (no bad pun intended). love the soloing toward the end, the way you stick with that simple melody, very cool. also like the devolution into nonsense. one of my lavalamp favorites and a cool tune to throw on the ipod for back to work week. thanks man.

Dave,
The time machine broken? You landed in the eighties here. But, that's understandable since so much of the 80's music owes its roots to the 60's. Cool heavier guitar sound here and I like the experimenting with different genres.
Go for it!,

What a flop, flip
on the entree, as you come on and lay it out with a straight rock on driver. Turn my earing around.
Nicely constructed though out and the ending got chuckles out of me.

Have you considered asking some of the sisters here to fortify your " Your breaking my heart"? That's what is sounds like you could use to flesh it out a little.

Really a cool klicken' pic, also.

I Really dig this
I loved how it started, but then you totally took a left turn. This is heavy. Much heavier than I expect from you. But still melodic as all get out. Great Rick Flair "whoo" before the solo. The pauses where the drums are all that's left make it happen. Great job. One of your best... why downplay it?

love that opening. and it leads perfectly into the vocals and heavy guitars. dave i think your vocals on this are some of the best i've heard from you! it's a great pop tune with a nice energy and catchy hook. loved the background vox panned over in my right ear. nice tune.

Prolific!
Dave, you really keep up a great pace of work - how do you do it? It takes me months to do a song! This has a great raw feel - nice mix (vox up front, but guitars up there), and i love the little drop-outs - really emphasise the power of the track. Reminds me a little of Jesus and Mary Chain... love it!

A lot of the tunes I have done, I did a while back. I've always written down and quickly recorded any songs I had written over the past 10-15 years. So, I have a nice source to pick from. Dave in his late 20's was a much better songwriter. lol Although, I think I wrote this one in 2005 or so.

Thanks
