Walking on Art

Description
So, my last song posted was about a can of paint, the colour of, actually. This one is about a rug. I had a Persian rug in my living room and my buddy said it was like walking on art. So I took it from there.

Lyrics
Admiring all of these works of art
Their canvas caressing the walls

An unforeseeable act of nature
Causes them to come crashing down

With all of your grace and prestige
With all of your intricacies

This masterpiece it falls to the ground
The people they scatter all around

And now I'm walking I'm walking on art
And now I'm walking I'm walking on art

Adorned with powers you can't conceive
Staring at this all in disbelief

And now I'm walking
And now I'm walking
I'm walking on art
Ahhh

Thanks Jd
No pipes were used in the making of this or any of my music. It was far from a pro studio. An untreated basement.

We used a Rickenbacker on there. 330 or 360? For get which one. It was a basket case. My buddy found it in a pawn shop and fixed it up.

Andrew said it first
excellent REM vibe - which is high praise in my house. But then you take it and push it harder - really solid track - great dynamics and changes. You mentioned a drummer - how was this recorded?

We did this years ago. Recorded onto 2"tape and it's been sitting for some time. Has been transferred onto a DAT tape and then pushed through Protools to pump up the volume. Not bad for a basement session.

walking on art
great indie pop/rock number. assured lyrics and confident vocal delivery. you've got a great voice jody. i must admit i'm weary of conventional guitar tuning, so the intro didn't appeal much, and the whole might have benefited from a left turn or middle bit to raise it further...but i'm really only nit-picking...this works the way it is.

Yeah, I'll admit to the lack of a bridge. Still not to great with part of the writing. I do appreciate your comments. I have one coming up that's a double drop D tuning for you. I'll let you know when it's up.

Nice crisp acoustic sound...
Hi Jody. Clever comment turned into an enjoyable song. Nice crisp acoustic sound and strong vocals. The drums certainly add positively to the vibe of the song. Perhaps a guitar solo over the outro might have added further interest. Nice work. Regards, Peter.

Nice picking and tone on the acoustic. Good overall arrangement, all the parts are sitting nicely in the mix. The tracks less vocals reminds of Pat Benetar "Chain Gang". Good vocals.

Pompeii
Walking through the ages, ruins of the masters are now dust under our feet.

Great song, love the little starts/stops near the end.

Funny, my grandfather brought home a Persian rug when he was in Saudi Arabia many decades ago, and it eventually found its way to me, and just a few weeks ago we had it cleaned and the ends hemmed, and my wife suggested that it not be on the floor, but hung on the wall as art... and since I am in the process of setting up my little music studio, what better way to adorn the wall, but with a sound baffle. (smirk) Seriously, it is still in really good shape and I intend to keep it that way. How's yours holding up? We should trade pix when I get it mounted.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Sadly my rug is gone. It was only a cheap $20 piece from K-Mart. Yours should look nice in your studio. If I'd still be in AZ I'd come over for the party.

Nice vibe Jody, this is really well written. I hear the REM feel as some have made reference above, but I would also draw comparisons to a group of fellow Texans, the Old 97's. Melodic rock at it's finest! Great post JR!

I tend to do that a lot, taking one line and running with it. Usually the song never turns out to be what it actually started as. Like this one was about a rug and then turns into a chaotic earthquake in a museum.

Inspiration
You know alot can be written about other than romantic love and you have proven it in very creative way. I respect that. I write about food myself. I like the straight ahead feel this had like music of the late 80's before it fell to pieces, imo.. You've created some fine musical art Jody( is that redundant of me?) Long live your rug!!

...of great big guitar chords....bright, spangly, arpeggiated and strummed....

This has got a nice touch of REM to the sound, and that's a sound I always enjoy... Nice vocal, too....

I think I'm sitting on some nice art as I type this....

Pretty neat song, Jody... Glad I finally caught up....
