The 173rd Song of L

Description
Scenario: I'm in a position were I can't use any of my instruments, no computer large enough to record it on, and no microphones or interfaces to plug in. So, I came up with this brilliant idea; shy not try to just use my MacBook? Simply use the laptop keyboard as an instrument, sing and record directly into it?

Result: A song about L, and that's all we need.

Peace. M.

Lyrics
The 173rd Song of L

everybody dreams of songs in their souls
they wake up to spring, wake up to howl
to rise and shine, to kiss and to play
everybody dreams of songs in their souls

on a train la-la
on a boat la-la
in a car la-la
we can fly la-la

everybody wants to have some fun
a little bit of color never hurts
they paint each other red and blue
everybody dreams of songs in their souls

173rd
the problem mikki is that 172 was such a cool track....a tough act to follow.

dude....i thought you'd gone to work on the fukushima melt-down....and forgot to put on your protective clothing....and were now glowing in a morgue somewhere. great to hear you're still about....and churning out your own brand of uber-weird-cool streams of musical conscience.

and you manage to make it all look so easy; a laptop and some GB sounds. easy for you mikki...easy for you.

Now, that's an idea! Yeah, it was easier than I'd expected actually, and even though the microphone on MacBook is far from perfect, it worked. I had fun, that's most important.

Like I said earlier, it was easier than I'd thought, although somewhat odd to play on the laptop keys, especially with their slight delay. But, I needed to prove to myself that even with small resources big thoughts can be put forward. And, it worked!

Love when we have limitations. Puts everything into a new perspective. This sounds like there is no handicap at all. Very clean and poppy. What fun. But, I have to ask, why are you without all your toys? HD crash? Between computers?

It is good having limitations. Although I'd prefer not to, it is what it is. Yup, my MacPro crashed on me, the motherboard, damn. So, I am actually doing all my work (graphic design, multimedia) on my MacBook, and from now on, as it is, also my music. I can carry my whole life around, and who cares about stations these days anyway; that's old school.

Great to hear a new tune!
Even with the limitations you had, you still made a great tune. Not that I had any doubt you'd be able to use any adversity to your advantage. Give you a rock and a stick, and you'd still create a masterpiece.

Enjoyed it, Mikki! Planning a New Orleans trip in the fall. You need to come!

Unlimited Mikki
Seriously, if your laptop was dead and powerless, you would bang on it, scratch and clank, blow in the ports and still make a better song than I ever could!

You continue to blow my mind, in the best way possible.

Another really great song downloaded.

Thanks!

it's all good and groovy .. but I really liked the instru-mental bit starting 1:48 ... and how you kept elements of that afterwards as the vocals returned. Your forced choice of instruments works and far better than I could do with the same.

Mikki - this is great
you obviously don't need all that other stuff to make wonderful song - any way you get your spirit out it's cool. Really love the chorus. The short freak jam towards the end is out of sight.
