The Dinosaur Park (LIOLI10)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
My entry for "Loop It Or Lose It 10". I used the MIDI version of the loop as-is and applied an organ soft-synth.

Lyrics
Don't talk to me till you got something to say.
Don't talk to me till you got something to say.
Oh, pretty baby, why don't you meet me at dark?
And we'll sneak into the Dinosaur Park.

Well the brontosaurus, you know he just wants some food
and old T-Rex, you know he's in a bad mood,
and triceratops, he walks around after dark,
so don't let them escape from the Dinosaur Park.

Now the lizards are raging, there's chaos all over town.
And the boys in blue go out and chase them around,
until early morning, when it's no longer dark
and they all go back to the Dinosaur Park.

Don't talk to me till you got something to say.
Don't talk to me till you got something to say.
Oh, pretty baby, why don't you meet me at dark?
And we'll sneak into the Dinosaur Park.

That's cute.
I like the retro sound. I was thinking of Purple People Eater only because of the quirky subject. Poor dinosaurs couldn't play guitar with those short arms or see music with eyes on either side of those big heads. Very ext, er, dist..inctive, Jim. Thank you.

Thanks!
This is the first time I've made the video simultaneous with the song (vocals only - I tried to sync the guitar solo - probably a better job on the fret shot than the pick shot). May try a full simultaneous video next time. *wink*

nice
this is cool. love the twisted take on an old storytelling country tune. twisted as in that wild drum beat, Godzilla's appearance and the "ghost and mr. chicken" organ. i'm really loving that guitar solo, so very cool. watch out, I'm going to be hitting you up for a guitar solo one of these days. What inspired the lyrics for this? they're perfect.

Inspired by...
...a real visit to a "dinosaur park", as seen in the photos (all of which I took myself, except for the one of me kissing Triceratops).

Thanks for the vote of confidence on an instrument that isn't even my main instrument (bass, dulcimers, and keyboard are 1-2-3). *wink*

Jim

I may have to teach this one to my students! Kids love dinosaurs! This track is a lot of fun. How did you get Godzilla to collab with you?

Execellent use of the loop
inspired in fact - great lyrics and overall feel too. This is a cool song. Jonathan Richman would be proud of this.

Thanks!
Thanks for the compliment (even though 3/4 of the guitar break was done on 2 strings within 3 frets of the nut and the other 1/4 was done on just 1 string - chalk that up to me being a dulcimer player). *wink* *grin*

Terrificasaurus
when I was a kid I used to play in park full of dinosaur statues (Crystal Palace, south London) and this reminded of long lazy summer holidays messing about with my brothers and friends.

Cool stuff.

cutoffs, & 50's
I love the vibe here, so retro - you cut off that loop perfectly at the tail to build this song. I love this!

Yes!
I dig the Jonathan Richman-esqueness of this too! This was the first posted and the last I've listened too. [done it in reverse order] I must say it's quite amazing how differently people have interpreted "that" damned loop!
Anyway, really good stuff. It goes on the LIOLI 10 iPod playlist, thanks!

I like your hook, lyrics are quirky cool, understated vocal works well delivering them. Organ fills at just the right place guitar solo is cool.

Very funny
I'm thinking "Monster Mash" as I listen. Good mix, the instrumentation suits the subject matter very well. Clever and amusing lyrics. Much enjoyed!

Funny! I never was able to bring that loop into submission. You did a good job.

Very good job, and I'm impressed you play dulcimer! I've got one I wrote a song on once, but that's about it! Need to get back to it.
