Lyrics
see the stars in the morning
there are some as cute as you
remember mother she said come in?
was i ever bad to you?

there were times when i said
oh darling come to bed
there were times when i meant it too

there are stars in the sky
so ill count the reasons why
i didnt work i didnt work for you

Cute Stars?
Interesting image... I like that whistly/theremin-like sound in the background of the "didn't work for you" part.

Nice accordion counterpoint too. Might like the vox a bit higher...but then it wouldn't be "lo-fi," would it?

Good to
hear young musicians making music like this. I like the way the harmonica sound (Melodica?) weaves in and out holding it all together. Really nice tune and accompaniment to the vocals.... Nice warming lyrics too, regards M

You're Kind of Our Dylan
Write it, record it, and get it out there. Let the song stand all on its own without too much production. I really respect that approach.

there were times when i said
oh darling come to bed
there were times when i meant it too

What a great lyric!

very nice
you have the lo-fi sound down, but the song is much more melodic (as opposed to BJM's Yardbirds and Stones obsession). I'm liking this track very much. what did you record on?

yeah man this is great
i love the stanza: there were times when i said/oh darling come to bed/there were times when i meant it too.

i like the tambo and the accordion. definitely more listenable than most BJM. i'll be happy to hear this roll around the playlist...

The instruments are unique.
The melody is very enjoyable. The vox should be a little louder so it isn't masked by the music. I don't know bjm so this was very different and unusual for me. Thanks.

Original
idea here, the recording is very organic, (in a good way), it has the sound of one take, minus the flute sounding synth or whatever. really a cool tune actually.

immensely cool. your voice is great, wish I could hear it better. Love the tune, the simplicity, the organic instruments with the synthy thing is very cool. Great tune!
