Thanx Bubowski, no question about it I like a lot of things. They sort of oozed out on this one.

Neville smooth
I love the almost Aaron Neville feel to the vocals. So light and dreamy, so right on pitch-wise. Great idea of a tune, too. So smooth and sweet...

The switch in styles @ 1:20 is a bit of a hickup, in my ears, a sudden jarring cut&paste sounding moment. But the transition out of it was really nice. Cool track.

Chest Drop
Thanx Tobin, you know, I thought about that section you mentioned, it is a bit of a 'hiccup'. It had more to do with setting up the lyric imaging, If you going to talk and dream about belly dancers, you got to go there. : )

I was about to say...
...hey, that's really smooth, but then came the bad idea at 1:20. I don't really know what to make of it. I think I really like it, but...it feels like a bad idea to say so. Oh well, you've got a great voice, and I love the vibe of this song. Thanks for posting.

Super Group Jam?
Sounds like Johnny Mathis, Steely Dan and Shecky Green met up at a party and decided to record this little ditty. It actually sounded like A Good Idea at the time, but of course, the piano had been drinking — and so had they.

I think Steely Dan *sticks out* the most in this production... perhaps not such a Bad Idea, after all. ;)

It was a bad idea
But the execution of the song elements make this so smooth. Great beats, riffs and vocals... just "bad" overall :)

The tops!
That voice of yours--this was reminiscent in style to some of The Manhattan Transfer's recordings, where the soloists take riffs from classic jazz recordings and perform them vocally--truly Miche, to me, your work on this sounded like it could have been coming out of Lester Young's horn perhaps: it has that kind of marvelous effect! Beautiful work here--one of your best! Michael

like the
Steely Dan feel, but no, it's not that as much as a classic Fambro groove... like the plosive sound of the words, Bad Idea... although I have no idea what you are talking about... ;)

Miche, you are SMOOTH....
I totally want to know if you are playing the lead guitar bits. That's it. Whole big production and that's what I want to know.

You know, you don't need your wit, really, 'cause you've got the voice. And you don't need the voice, really, 'cause the wit will carry it. And then you've got sophisticated taste, which you seem to enjoy subtly subverting...

So really, you've got it all and you'll get no sympathy from me, mister...
fambroski said 2432 days ago (September 26th, 2010)
Alrighty then!
Ok Ed. lol. Yeah, I'm playing the guitar parts. I've been having a ball since I've started playing the electric again.

This is absolutely first-rate music... Your voice is fantastically expressive, all the instrumental tracks sound fully professional, the song itself is clever, sophisticated, and unique; all in all, you are the Real Deal!
