Crimson

Description
Track 6 from Sonic Magpie's RPM Challenge CD "In Limbo."

From Cat:
This track was a trip to work on. I had approached each instrumental Bryn made available by following my first impressions, and when he posted an instrumental with the title "She Turned Crimson," I thought I'd take on the challenge of actually using the title as the chorus.

Needless to say, this is one of the more surreal tracks, lyrically speaking, on the album--but since we were 'in limbo' anyway, it didn't have to make sense, did it?

Bryn says there is a definite Bowie-vibe going on with the vox, but that wasn't intentional on my part. I simply responded to Bryn's awesome instrumental and improvised most of the vocals track-by-track, recording them on the macbook pinhole mic.

This was a particularly fun track to work on--mostly because the song built itself vocally with each layer. And, as I hadn't planned it out beforehand, each new take was a new discovery.

Thank you, B, for such an fun track--and an awesome experience with the RPM Challenge!

Lyrics
don't look now--they're watching you
you know just what they'll say...
don't look back--they'll follow you
you'll never run away.

she turned crimson, and then she ran away
she turned crimson to fight another day
she turned crimson, and then she ran away

everywhere, every move, every place, every groove

don't look back--they're watching you
everywhere you go
they'll follow you
if you try to run away....

she turned crimson, and then she ran away
etc....

Great stuff!
Though I think your vocals could be a little louder; just a tad. You two are really good together. Thanks.

Very cool
I wonder what it would sound like with some delay on the vocals? I think it would sit better with the instrumental track. Just thinking out loud.
Peace
