Planet Faraway (stolen from Cheeto)

Description
Cheeto's tune: He sent it to me and was really excited about it. 'It goes all over the place and I added a ton of bass," he said.

My lyrics. They were inspired by a Forum posted by Kicbal and the dialogue that ensued. Death to all Rockstars. Also, my wife and I were talking about how easy it is to forget about what is important when you are on stage. It's like you're on 'Planet Faraway'.

Vocals, awigze and Cheeto
Swelling Guitars: Cheeto
Tenor Sax: awigze
Lyrics also by Cheeto

The Email that came with Paul's music file:

Like I said..it needs some serious mixing...it's in it's first incarnation...but i'm really stoked about it!

Andy wrote this crap:
awesome ... I am hearing lyrics. what do ya got? what do you think of this
There is sax too of course.


We could go to my house
and play in a big back yard
We could dig in the garden or
go up to planet far away
What do ya say?
go up to planet far away
What do ya say?

We could try to be rockcstars
or not even give a damn
we can play on monkeybars
[or stay out way past late] - dropped lyric
go up to planet far away
What do ya say?
go up to planet far away

We could grow up and be cool kids
and never have to work a day
We could hope to be flameouts
and hope to be on the cover of people magazine
and try to be a bunch of people that we would even like to be
and sit in our yachts near the shore or sit in the cockpits of our
tiny helicopters...

Planet Faraway
Love that guitar tone chugging along. Tempo changes remind me of Zappa, and come to think of it the lyrics and attitude do too. Love that sax! This is the kind of escape many of us can use nowadays, so thanks.

Lyrics...
When Andy sent me the lyrics he wrote at his "break" during work..they just fit the song perfect! It really was a fun song to do...thanks to some Cherry Vodka and up til 1:30am working on it!

drakonis said 2670 days ago (March 31st, 2010)
Pull out the stops
Balls to the wall, boys
Pedal to the heavy metal
um...
and a bunch of other euphemisms for "Planet Faraway", where I saw my best friend (lead guitarist) head all the time... he'd pick up his guitar, get that dreamy look, and I knew he was gone... he never got there, but he never quite came back.

But back to this... this was wacky weird, but strangely cohesive, in a duct-tape-around-your-mouthpiece sort of way. :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis

Duct-tape...
When I was putting this song together it was originally supposed to be a straight forward heavy song..but as more vodka ciculated in my blood..the more crazy it got but it worked..I kept coming up with these guitar riffs..maybe part of it was tired and lazy to not make another song out of it..but I wanted to just have this song ALL over the place! With Andy's lyrics...they help put the song where it was supposed to be! Thanks for the listen.

ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Glad I could provide some inspiration for you ;P Fun and Funny stuff. On a serious note, seeing that this is a first round rough draft, I'm actually hearing some Smashing Pumpkin vibes and the ghost of a 90's goof-off metal band called Scatterbrain. The reason I bring this up, is that this has a wacky yet intelligent insanity like a Zappa tune, but with the previously mentioned bands sound. I would suggest that if you remix this to go that heavy alternative rack route with the sound. Love it. More sax please. How about a distorted sax solo?

There's A Zappa Thing
happening in the vocal performance and production, particularly in the section starting at 1:37. Now that I think about it the title is Zappaish as well. Crazy guitar and bass sounds. Love the guitar solos. And great reverb drenched sax.
