Description
well i had the music to this finished last week without any idea for lyrics. But it hit me this weekend that no matter if i was shopping, interneting or turned on the tv there would be Jennifer A. She's everywhere, so that gave me the idea for the lyrics.

Lyrics
Jennifer A.

your picture in newsprint
i saw you on the tv set
it was you
listened to every work said
even though we never met
and they say everything is true

that's what i like about you
a little new
a little used
something about you
that's what i like about you
a little new
a little used

in every magazine
bigger then life on the movie screen
it was you
un-named beaches getting a tan
even though i'm not a fan
and they say everything is true

that's what i like about you
a little new
a little used
something about you
that's what i like about you
a little new
a little used

your life is a open book
can resist to take a look
it was you
everywhere you are there
i think you want me to care
and they say everything is true

that's what i like about you
a little new
a little used
something about you
that's what i like about you
a little new
a little used

whoa
man this is so just jam packed with...pop cool, i don't know, just so musically interesting, i think it's the most engaging thing i've heard from you, it just kills. Can i cover it? Or rather can i sing it? because no way i could improve the playing and composition, i just have to have my own version of this dude, this is a righteous, soaring pop tune.

When I saw
the title in the email, I wondered if it was referring to her. It's cool how the lyrics came together.

An excellent tune Vic, I enjoyed that solo as well!

I liked this. Cool guitar tones and synth stabs, dripping with reverb. Really digging the guitar solo. The mix is outstanding, all the sounds are eq separated, and well balanced.

it does take awhile to find the right spot for things to set right. when i mix i only spend a 1/2 at a time max. before the ears get tired. it may take several nights to get it close. it's better then having to go back at it sometime down the road and fix things

this is
super cool. loving the music on this. that bouncy rhythm during the verses is really cool. you've really been doing some different stuff lately, but still has your stamp on it. i love the little single not thing during the verses too. drum beat is great in the choruses. love the toms. guess I'm just digging the tune.

Thanks Michael
I was really wanted to get into a more upbeat frame of mind. so bouncy it came. i used indian drums in the verse and a couple of logics sampled drums. really had to pull back the levels on everything else for them to come through.

michael2 said 2652 days ago (February 16th, 2010)
wow
i have had problems with levels being really low when I use ultrabeat. is that what the drums you used were in? my workaraound was to bounce in place, and then add a slight bit of compression.

I hope she isn't googling herself and find a link to this. then her and her lawyers might really cash in off of me.

A killer hook Vic.

Someone said said "engaging" and that's a perfect description.

Great work!

Very cool sound. Original topic, indeed. Did her publicist pay you to post this?

The mix is pro quality.

If you ever need lyrics again, don't be shy to ask me.

Hey!
Sorry I'm late! What a cool tune. The opening section (interesting percussion choice) had me wondering: "Where is this going?" Then KA-BOOM! "That's what I like about you" comes gloriously roaring in, and I was home once again in downtown Vicville!

Yummy guitar soloing!

Be well bro!

i started going through different world drums for something a bit different the indian and middle eastern drum kit sounded like it would be fun to play on this. normal drums probably wouldn't have done as well in the verse. thanks Mike

Vic,
Excellent tune, I don't know Jennifer A, but she inspired you very well. Once again a solid work on vocals, guitars and all instruments.
A great post here. Thank you Vic...

Jennifer is a movie and tv actress. she is always in the press, i guess everyone really likes her. but, since i didn't say her name in the song itself it can be re-titled to fit any high profile actress i think.

Cool Song Vic, I like how the chorus feels like a plane lift off!

I went to High School W/ Jen, She was very nice, its not an act....she probably has no clue who I am now though, hehe :)

Another great tune from VH! Great stuff man. My favorite part of the song is the chorus; it has that sing along quality to it. Of course you always play a very tasty lead guitar.

Great song here Vic.

I love that line "that's what i like about you, a little new, a little used". The guitar on the chorus especially amps it up. You are certainly spot on with the inspiration for this :-)

the chorus......
....... always comes first for me when i start writing the lyrics. once i have something the rest comes about quickly. it would be something if everyone had a theme song.

what I like
is, of course, the chorus first of all. But also the guitar solo, and the indian drum kit in the verses. And the lyrical perspective... So nicely done!

BIG CHOPS
Big, Crisp, and Balanced with an unimaginable Soundstage. How the EQ works to House All those Sources is Amazing.

Were it a "Driver" rather than Laid Back - it'd Blow the Roof Off.

Real Nice.

This is a big surprise, a great song with Psychadelic Furs quality. The vocal is great, so perfectly performed. The arrangement is so cool, as is the bass and the guitar, the solo is a killer. Great mix and master. This is a hit in my ears! Great, great, great!

Love
the style of your voice in this and the instrumentation seems so well crafted into the tune.
I can sure see this could be a hit record on major radio stations. Especially when that incredible chorus comes in. That what I like about you section is such an incredible knock out. Now that is REAL rock and roll at it's best! And the other sections fit so well with it!

WAY TO GO !

IMPRESSED !

Jennifer A
I'm playing catchup on people's work right now. This! This is just all kinds of awesome. A true slice of pop genius. It kinda gives me a Psychedelic Furs vibe. I can see it as the big hit from the soundtrack of an 80's high school movie - you know the one - Craig Thomas (tempie) is the loner kid, only his trusty Delta King for company. But Jennifer A, high school sweetheart, has a secret admiration for his independence and lack of need for approval. So the finale has Craig singing the awesome Holman song "Jennifer A".
And that's what I like about you ...
