Nothing Left For Me w/ Lavalamp


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
i recorded the music to this around 4 months or so. My first thought that it would be perfect for Dave to add vocals to. At the time he was on summer break, so i just held on to this for a while. I finally got around to asking him if he would be interested to add lyrics and vocals. and so here we are again.

Nothing Left For Me

Every time I dream
Anytime I speak
Always seems to be
There’s nothing left for me

Everything I hate
Things I can’t create
Now I plainly see
There’s nothing left for me

Nothing left for you and me
It is gone and out of reach
All is lost and can’t be found
I get the sense I’m going…down, down, down

Smile at the trees
When they turn to green
Now they all agree
There’s nothing left for me

Slam a broken door
Feelin’ kinda’ poor
Not surprisingly
There’s nothing left for me

Nothing left for you and me
It is gone and out of reach
All is lost and can’t be found
I get the sense I’m going…down, down, down

Now my hopes are gone
You hear it in this song
Slight out of key
And there’s nothing left for me

Feelin’ out of place
Deep in outer space
Always seems to be
There’s nothing left for me

Nothing left for you and me
It is gone and out of reach
All is lost and can’t be found
I get the sense I’m going…down, down, down

Thanks Kenta
Having Dave do the vocals seemed to be the logical thing to do.

Late 60-70's Vibe
Makes me think of the Beatles w/ a twist. Very cool guys!

hah!
And well worth the wait it was! Dave's lyrics/melody/and voice are perfect for this track, great backer, I'd love to add and have Charles add some harmonies to this, I bet that would sound awesome, not that it needs it but that would be fun! Make it sound like the Hollies or the Byrds a bit, very cool song, loved it! d/led it! Maybe I'll add harmonies just for my own entertainment, very cool guys!

Wow
you are a machine lately. This is great. Love that early 60s pop sound. really good. james just called me about wanting us to put some 60s style harmonies in here if you are interested. I think it would sound awesome on this.

Wowzers
This song is so awesome! I absolutely love the track, it has such a fun vibe throughout.

Dave did a great job with the vocals & lyrics. I have to say that I am really looking forward to hearing James & Charles doing harmonies & background vocals. That would be the icing on the cake!

great
wonderful collab, your sensibilities mesh very well. would be cool to hear more from you two.
I like the song, and the guitar and vocal performances were very enjoyable. also liked the guitar tones, esp the gnarly distortion on the solo and the tremolo on the rhythm part.
applause!

Cool collab
you two make great music together. I could see why you thought Dave would do right by this one. It has that twisted pop sensibility that he excels at. You created a really fine arrangement and his vocals sit really well.

if Dave wasn't up for it on this song, it might have stayed on the ole' hard drive another 4 months. Dave really took it on as his own.

Here are the lyrics in case you wanted to know.

It was real fun working the other way around this time. Let's do it again in the future Vic. We almost have an albums worth. lol

Nothing Left
Yet another cool Holman tune, and a collab at that! This actually reminds me of a 90's band called They Might Be Giants - in fact a lot of your work, Vic, sounds like they influenced your thinking process just a bit.

I got a kick out of this one - thanks for sharing!

Summer collab
I dig the retro sound on this, reminded me of the stuff that just predated rock, the folk rock of the Fugs and some other 1962-64 tunes. Consider posting lyrics. Nice collab. MacJams is such a cool place...

a little light psychedelia before psychedelia. sometimes when you are in the process of recording you just know who would be perfect to wrap up a tune.

Loved the music and the vocals are right on. The rotary sounding guitar really brings out the mood to the song. The vocal phrasing fits well with the tune. Enjoyed!
