Lyrics
THERE SHE WAS
DOWN THE STREET
THERE SHE IS
THEN WE MEET
I SAW THE GIRL

SAW THE GIRL
SAW THE GIRL
SAW THE GIRL IN TWO

WHAT'S RIGHT IS FOR ME
WHAT'S LEFT IS FOR YOU

SAW THE GIRL
SAW THE GIRL
SAW THE GIRL IN TWO

WHAT'S RIGHT IS FOR ME
WHAT'S LEFT IS FOR YOU

.......

IF I CAN'T HAVE HER
YOU CAN'T HAVE HER

SAW THE GIRL
SAW THE GIRL
SAW THE GIRL IN TWO

Saw The Girl (with egobandit)
This is a very cool tune. This one could actually translate very nicely into an acoustic setting. Strum a guitar and sing it. Bob's background vocal has a decidedly Zappa vibe.

Hey Andrew,

Maybe one day we'll all three get together and play bass?

We haven't been video taped in months!

Thanks, pilgrim,

Bob

Thanks bud. Tim and I were shooting for that Peaches and Herb sound. I think we missed our goal.

We had fun any way!

Thanks!

Rock em Sock em
Don't you love how Tim treated the vocals on this? I knew he'd go off on a lyrical spirit walk once I passed the mic -

Besides his enormous drumming and extra bass parts, his vocals are what seal the deal for me.

Thanks Vic

a chorus
of beatles-esque vocals put to a melodic soundbed. What's not to like?

Tim was actually the 6th Beatle.

Don't believe it? Google it. I couldn't believe it myself!

Splitting In Two
As this tune built up layer after layer, it really got interesting fast. I hesitated to add the vocals, because I just had the chorus part and, well, you know.... It's not your typical lyrical idea.... I sent it anyway and Tim jumped on it immediately. I really love the quiet, subliminal conversations he developed deep beneath the heaviness. He makes it look so easy!

A true poet!

Thanks King.

This song was special, even without the lyrics its the kind of tune that sticks in your head, Thanks Bob for letting me take your creation for a ride!

Sawn In Two
Sometimes when I write songs and I start with the bass, I ask myself, "What Would Ego Do?"

WWED?

WWBD?

LOL!

This was fun stuff Tim. There's more in the dropbox!

As I told Bob, you two are the hall and oates of your generation. great tune, just enough pop to give the machine some swing. really like that 'if i can't have her' refrain.

Hall and Oates? Are you still mad about the Muskrat Love reference from 5 years ago?

I think we might actually be the Tony Orlando and Dawn of this generation.....

Well Armed Bandit
Thanks for the feedback Mark. We felt like we were of on the right track from the git go. Grungy bass sounds, little synth sounds, thunderous drums....

It was a pleasure.

Thanks for the listen

Play on words
Great, dirty riff and 60's/70's vox. Really nice collab guys, full of texture and melody. Put me in mind initially of early Talking Heads. Excellent. The outro refrain is awesome.

Play On Words
This tune did work out to be pretty rich on textures and melodies if I do say so myself. I think Tim has a great feel for when to lay it on heavy and when to hold back.

Married life hasn't affected your good judgement!


Thanks for the feedback.

Saw The Girl
Oh wow that is a freaky yet clever lyric. Maybe if they make another "Saw" movie... I can hear some of those Ego textures, along with the 5xa synths. You guys make a good team.

I Faved This
Because I always fave the songs I enjoy/download and egobandit was awesome on this.

Might be one of his best works. Ask me in 5 minutes when he posts his next tune!

LOL!

The word play is...


..outstanding!

Take some simple words with 2 or more meanings (saw, left, right etc) and you give it so much more depth in this effective storyline, than first hits the aural hoover.

I believe this is the 12" version, no?

Both vox are great and the bass is grungetastic!

Love the description and artwork. So, I guess I'm into STG all the way...!

Cheers,

Jim

you can't halve her
interesting solution to "the doggone girl is mine" problem. another approach would be to sew yourselves together as conjoined twins.
great sounding track guys, like the synth and guitar mix.
vocals sound right together.
neat ending too. Applause!

absolutely brilliant!
I had to comment on this, even though it meant I was late meeting my girlfriend in Costa coffee. This is brilliant. The lyrics are a inspired pun and the dirty riff and bass work beautifully together, especially when the synth comes in at 3.00 ish. You two must work on more collabs, you were meant to be!! Words are inadequate to describe how good this is.

Excellent post - catchy, memorable and pretty twisted. Ego/Tim doing a collab is a very interesting concept, but if it was going to happen then this is the perfect vehicle for it.
Terrific post guys, congratulations.

So who wins?
While you two were fighting, I took her. We had a tickle fight and ate churros. You're both in top vocal delight. The false ending tricked me. And there's more vocal delight coming. One of you sounds kind of Sean Lennon-esque and I honestly can't tell which.

why would two guys fight over the same girl. can't they just take turns? oh wait...there was i thinking i was being clever...and it's already there in the lyrics...now i feel stupid. well obviously i'm going to love this. i love this.
interesting falsetto departure towards the end.
