Stars (Alt. Vocal)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Taking some of the comments of the earlier version into account I've recorded a different vocal for the verses. I've also taken the opportunity to tame the HF and remix the other vocals, pushing the backing vox down into the mix a little. Lots of tweaks and hopefully a more satisfying result.

Lyrics
Backseat kisses, sodium lights
Wooden horses turning round and round
Neon flashes, moonlight candy sounds
Empty street race late night crowd

Are the stars the enough for you Are the stars enough
Are the stars enough for you
Or should I fly?

Golden morning, ice cold windscreen miles
Dirt scuffed knees and tired eyes
Cops on corners, secret stair escapes
Lipstick perfect farewell smile

Are the stars enough for you
Are the stars enough
Are the stars enough for you
Or should I fly?

BRIDGE:

We got moonlight chances
And gas stop late romances
And dollar bill warm memories

Souls in perfect union
A moment caught in amber
Streetlight symphony

I'm relieved
To hear lots of tweaks happens more or less to everyone. So it's really tough. Very nice song, sounds like a good mix too.

Good lyrics. Strong images which seem to come from a stream of conciousness. I like the wall of sound guitar. I like the vocs/harmonies especially on the chorus.

Sounds great
I think that it sounds pretty nice. But I'm going to have to listen again when I get home and can hear it on my studio monitors.

I do like driving bass. Nice!

Rich Milk Fat Sound
The intro is full of yummy goodness...kinda puts me in a Flaming Lips/Pink Floyd state of sound.

there you go man
the phrasing in the verse is much better, much more interesting and rolls into the chorus in a more natural way. this is a really cool tune. that chorus is huge. I love the break, and the solo kicks off with great emotion. terrific tune, one of my favorites.

I'm a bit late to the party but this is a groovy tune.
like the bass and guitar tones, backing vocals are right on.
evocative lrx too.
the key change at 3:50 was a particularly nice touch.
bravo!

I grew up in the 70's and 80's in the south of the UK in an Irish family. I had always loved music but was never given an opportunity to explore making it for myself. About 10 years ago I bought an acoustic guitar and began strumming in earnest. To d... [see more]
