Description
I remixed this with Ozone to give it an extra depth and bit of woomph . It's two years since i first posted it and when I posted it i said that it started with me listening to electric piano loops, but instead of using the loops I learned to play them and that's what you hear here. As well as drum loops the lead guitar is looped as well, but the singing/talking, is all me.... hope this makes those who didn't hear it the first time sit back and relax.... and smile, thinking about similar night clubs they might have frequented.

Lyrics
Blue Flamingo



‘Blue Flamingo’ is the name of the place;
once through the door you disappear with no trace,
Hopes are high coz the lights are low,
Eyes seem to follow you wherever you go.
You feel the rhythm, the pulsin’ rhythm,
It kinda’ holds you, and then enfolds you,
Blue-ue blue Flamingo, blue-ue Flamingo,

People on the dance floor swing and sway,
beckon you to join them in their strange melee,
Twistin’ writhin’ like they’re in a trance,
That’s the way it gets you when you start to dance,
It’s so hypnotic and so erotic,
The way they’re movin’ looks so exotic,
Its the Blue Flamingo , It’s the blue Flamingo, It’s the blue Flamingo.

You’d swear the way they look that they were takin’ stuff,
Yet the beat’s the only thing they can’t get enough,
It drives ‘em crazy, their minds go hazy,
The way they dance you can’t call them lazy,
Blue-ue, blue Flamingo, blue Flamingo.

Short Instrumental.

Dance on your own, nobody cares,
Shake-a-shake your booty or dance in pairs,
Have a nice drink to make you cool,
If that doesn’t work just jump in the pool,
The mood id warming; the music calming;
You gotta love it; can’t rise above it
Blue Flamingo, blue Flamingo.

The name of the place is ‘The Blue Flamingo’,
Swarming with people wherever you go,
It’s Hypnotic, So Erotic,, Everybody dancin’ it’s so erotic,
Ad Lib. To end

Didn't catch this one when it was first posted, being a relatively recent MJ convert, so it was good to hear it this time round, Maurice. Like your vocals in the "chorus". Nice vibe happening as well. Enjoyed, Peter.

Glad
you liked it Peter... glad you put 'Chorus' in inverted commas LOL, since the chorus is just two words repeated LOL. I was too busy swaying to write more words... thanks for calling, Cheers M

Oh Yes Andrew
I can play keyboard, but not always with two hands at the same time, which can be a problem LOL..... these were basically chords with little runs, so relatively easy. Thanks for listening to this, regards M

Yeah...
Makes me feel like I'm in some island vacation. Maurice, the lilting rhythm and your smooth vocals really set up a light, romantic mood in this song. Can't help smiling all through the song.

Great work Maurice

Really nicely done.

Under the sun...
...and considering it's only 38 degrees here (that's right folks--if you like warm weather, Minnesota is not for you!), I really enjoyed and appreciated this tropical one-two punch from you Maurice--you aim to please every time and do it so very well. Thanks again!

Michael,
I'm so sorry that we're getting all the Sun that you should be getting LOL... I got quite a tan last week-end... trouble is, I now look more like a Walnut than I already did. Thanks for supporting me always; it's very much appreciated and I'm so glad you enjoyed this, regards M

Lyrics, melody, and backer all work together really well to create and sustain the mood, which gently pokes some fun at the Flamingo's patrons. I like this line "Hopes are high coz the lights are low".

Nice
flow to this, great setting for your wonderful vocals. I"ve always said that when I hear you music I feel like I am on a cruz going to an exotic adventure. I feel like I am almost up against the shore with a big cruz liner heading to a place with excitement and ultra fun with a special someone.

Way to go !

Anyway - this is great!

Harold,
tell her that I said you really need it and MUST have it LOL :-].... ......mind you, it was far less expensive than I'd thought it would be and really worth it for the difference it makes. Very pleased you found the difference so noticeable though, so thanks for the confirmation on that score.... glad you liked it, regards M
