Description
I've always wanted to cover this great song of bud's, so I messed with it and messed with it and I finally got to a point where I thought I'd ask his permission to post it.

Now I only have 22 more songs on my list of covers!

Here's bud's original - http://www.macjams.com/song/35484

Lyrics
Sally sang a song about a mountain
rising from the sea
blue, blue skies and sandy, sandy beaches
a soft and gentle breeze
blowin through the graceful arcing palm trees
a picture perfect scene
Sally’s never been out of the city
she doesn’t watch TV

she’s got a really great imagination
the kind of girl who read a lot when she was young
her records all are scratched and out of their jackets
they skip and make her laugh when the phone rings
watch her run

Sally sang a song about a river
flowing aimlessly
past the towns and through the wild woodlands
winding to the sea
riverboats pull barges from the coal mines
silent and serene
Sally’s lost in Twain’s Americana
her favorite place to be

Lyrics by bud

The guitar on this is sick. Love it. Has a very "Cramps" feel to it in a depressed drone-y kind of way. The drums on this are killer, too, just right.

Wow Bob
You really made this your own. Fantastic take - I love it. The twisted synths are so cool - and the whole thing is so endearing - your vocals are just getting better and better all the time. Screw the lessons - you have found your voice. Thanks for taking an interest in Sally - she's a swell gal.

"22 covers to finish!" We'll save that line for next years xmas collab!

Great song Bud! Excellent arrangement and performance Bob. I really like the bass line. It's a textbook lesson on the effectiveness use of space.

The bass and all the little touches work and keep you alert.
This turned out cool, Miss Field would be honoured :)
your vox work really well, they remind me of someone else around here but I huts can't put my finger on it.
Nice one

Sally - Outstanding In Her Field
Basic bass and little touches. I tried to keep it really simple and I'm glad I did. The full bass treatment sounded too forced, so I came back and tried to only emphasize parts for greater dramatic effect.

I hope it was a good choice.

Thanks for the listen.

Thanks Vic,

I figured if I were in Kevin's band, he'd-a kicked me out by now for abusing the synths.

good cover
wow, i'm impressed with the synth sounds and riffs. very rocking.
cool song! nice lyrics on the chorus. I shudder when I think of those scratched up records though. I like to put 'em carefully back in their sleeves. But I'm guessing these records don't have sleeves LOL.

hot
She's making a weird face, but Sally Field looks kind of hot in those glasses.

ALSO, there's a song. Love the bass. Comes in like a hip hop record. The lyrics are wild. Good job, Bud. And you do a great soundbed for the shenanigans. I'll have to check out the original.

dark
There is something sinister happening in this, some wild interweaving synth parts, not to mention the spot on lyrics, I like the placement in this how there are long intervals in-between the sung verses! very cool!

Sinister
It was a last second decision to add some music between verses. I forgot to mention that.

I'm glad you commented on that. I wondered what it did to the song.

Thanks ego.

The full synth treatment
Hey Bob, you have really given the full synth treatment to Bud's song. Sounded like you needed all of those extra arms to get it happening. I like the layered vocals. Thanks for the posting. Regards, Peter

Great cover!
Love the synth work and your vocals sound great on this. Did you do it all by ear, or did you have a copy of Bud's music to work by? Sounds very Kraftwerk in parts. Excellent.

I tried to, any way!

Kraftwerk is in my blood, so my apologies to Rolf and Florian for any likeness in my physical stature.

really great imagination
First, thanks for making me discover Bud's original. You have really steampunk'd it but the song is strong, with great lyrics and totally work the way you did it. I really like the bass and these little 80s snares.

What? Are you some kind of authority?


Bud's original is really a favorite of mine. Bud himself is a favorite of mine. You've met the man, and I've met you, so I know that you know that Bud is an original.

Glad you liked it.

man you're the new MJ steven king
i can't keep up with all these posts. i'm used to one 5x post every six months. this is outrageous. that feedbacky synth riff is also outrageous. also, isn't the 'e' in outrageous cool? you think it's just going to be 'ous' but then you put that e in there and get all european sophist-icate. Anyway if I had a band, you would SO be the synth player.

You're such a liar. I average a song a month. I know you have eleven fingers, so you should be able to count that high you big dumb redneck.

I try hard to make out-ray-jiss synth riffs, so I appreciate the invitation to join your band. I'm your man, in the weirdest way possible. The kind of weird way that makes your friend(s) so uncomfortable that you question your reasoning for asking me to be your synth player.


So will we be doing house parties?

definitely a distinctive 5EA sound in your songs. Neatest group of wildly wired synths I've heard anywhere. Thanks.

Nice!
Great track Bob!

While I'm here let me also add that there has been a commercial I've seen a couple of times on TV (I think it was an NFL commercial) that reminds me of you. The backing music is really catchy and sounds like it came directly from the 5EA music vault :D

More Mekkanikal Sally!
Yes, Sally, we like you, we really do. Mr. Arms -- Bob -- I listened to Bud's original first, and think it's great. This is, too, a fitting salute, done-up all brassy with a more mechanized Enio-Frippertronic-Kraftwerk-Devo sensibility. Some fine talent here at MJ, fer shoor.
