Description
The last song I submitted really sucked because I was trying to be all artistic and crap. I had to delete it. It stunk up the place bad.

Forget that!

This sucks too but at least I don't have to make any excuses for it. This is my style. Take it or leave it.

I did two guitar parts. I did absolutely no muffing when playing this song which gives it a 70's style hard rock feel.

Lyrics
Armed Robbery

If you need more drugs
And you don’t have the cash
You’re Jonesing really bad
And you need more stash
Then the thing you need to do
Is rob a liquor store or two
Just throw on a hoodie
Wear some glasses and a mask
Grab yourself a gun
Get on with the task
Maybe go to the park
After it’s gotten dark
Never ever be very nice
Always be totally brash
Demand that they give you
All their stinkin’ cash

(chorus)
Armed robbery is a way to make some cash
Armed robbery is the way to score more stash
If you get caught you’ll be doing five to ten
You’ll be doing some time at the state pen

If you get caught
You’ll do five to ten
But you know it’s worth it
Scoring on some H again
If you rob a bank
Cause you need a little more
You’ll need an accomplice
To make the big score
You’ll need a fast car
Because there will be
A lot of cops out there
Calling in APB’s
If you get in a chase
You better not stop
Because there’s nothing worse
Than an angry cop

(chorus)

Armed robbery

for having a listen to my insanity. The artwork is just something I found on the net.

My guitar tone is gettingg better. It's partly the way I'm recording my parts and partly the way I've been mixing them.

i found myself driving past convenience stores
that weren't on the way home...

love the structure, riff the entire verse and then chords under the chorus. really like the vocals in the chorus too, they've got a great sabbath feel. also, killer solo.

don't change man, i can always count on your tunes to kick me in the ass and get me going.

Love the energy
of this song--definitely doesn't suck, the last thing from it!!!

I'm not a big "hard guitars & drums" listener most of the time, but I have to say that I consistently enjoy your tunes: you've got a touch that makes them rough and tough but also accessible--and this one is a prime example!

That's a really nice compliment. If I just had the smoothness of your vocals I'd be set.

Dadai.2 said 2636 days ago (March 8th, 2010)
Yep.... fast eddie....
blazing along the road with some classic rocking. No frills... just solid meat and potato hard rock sound.

You're vocal and guitar sound great. And kudos on that solo riff. Always good to get back to basics. I think that is where inspiration is found more often than not.

cheers...

For the listen. I'm getting to be kind of an old rocker so all I know is the classic sound. I try to get that new fangled stuff going and I just can't get my fingers to do that.

Don't Let It Slip Away is really great.

Calchas said 2636 days ago (March 8th, 2010)
Ha ha!
Great tongue-in-cheek lyrics! Guitars are smoking. Bass is rumbling. Drums are kicking. Soloing is cool but all-too-brief...Your tunes are always a fun ride Michael. This one's no exception!

Be well friend!

Thanks again for having a listen to my outrageous songs. I debated making the lead a little longer. Most of my songs are well above 4 minutes. I wanted to keep this one in the 3:30 range so that I wouldn't loose the listener's interest.

Maybe someday I'll make a version with the shredding middle; it'll be like the tweenkie version.

I really loved For Love and Music... That song was awesome.

I guess that start does kind of sound like The Ace of Spades. I was more worried that it sounded too much like Ball Room Blitz. Lemmy must have a sore neck after looking up at his mic the way he does. Plus, why doesn't he go to the dermatologist?

Thanks for the listen. Cosmic Thing is a great song man!

and I promise to stop ... real soon ... no, really. "All artistic and crap." Hahahaha. Sorry I missed that one. You're probably being too hard on yourself. Nah, we don't need none of that artsy fartsy stuff. Just kick some ass. That's your thing, and you do it so well. Love that picture. Big guitar sound. I like it.

Hey man
I promise not to get artsy fartsy ever again. That's why I like singing about crime so much because it's hard to put that theme to anything artistic. It only works with pounding driving headache music.

Arctis rocks big time bro'. I played that a couple times!

drakonis said 2634 days ago (March 10th, 2010)
Where'd you steal this from?
The initial guitar motif that dips down then back up reminds me a bit of the "Batman" theme song, which made me smirk. Although the EQ on this was a little narrow (midrange was a little high), but beyond that, the music was a great ride, really well put together and played! Given all the real-life crime going on around us lately I have to try to look at the lyrics as tongue-in-cheek... :-) Very good singing there too!
ttfn,
Drakonis

fasteddie said 2633 days ago (March 10th, 2010)
Thank you Drakonis
for listening. I do try to make fun of really stupid people acting horribly wrong. I definitely try and stay away from topics that are terribly brutal like pedophilia, rape, murder and such where there just really isn't any humor that can be taken from it.

I've pretty much run out of criminal activity that I can sing about. I'm having to come up with new topics to poke fun of.

I really try not to cross the line too far and be too offensive with my lyrical content. I try and make things fun and yet be on the edge a little too.

Thanks for the listen and the advice on mixing.

Mike

Lullaby for the Inner Child is an incredibly beautiful piece of work by the way.

Satire's fun
Making fun of stupid people doing stupid things can be quite funny... and you would think that nobody would EVER run out of material for that! :-)

What about quirky musician humor? A song about a guitar that eats picks, or a "Flying Dutchman" band story about a ghostly band that blows into town once every 7 years to play, and can only be set free if the daughter of the barkeep falls in love with the lead singer (or for a better twist, the drummer.) :-)

Cool music you have here!
ttfn,
Drakonis
