Free (remix)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
A thorough remix of my biggest mainstream joint. I think it sounds way better.
It's all about the subjective feeling of being free. But I guess you're smart enough to read between the lines.
Love,
W

Sorry.. I made a double upload. Deleted the previous one.

Lyrics
Wrapped up in a blanket
Watching bullshit on TV
I’m not worried about tomorrow
Because my head is very clear

The cat is in the kitchen
And I’m sipping on a coke
Met some yesterfriends on facebook
But the majority’s a joke

I’m free
I’m free

Stories in the paper
And the paper’s way too thick
Just by looking at the headlines
I get scrupulously sick

I’m breathing brown tobacco
But the doctor says I’m fine
Since I gave up eating dogfood
And cut down drastically on wine

I’m free
I’m free

On this very moment I feel emptiness inside
Missing my old buddies Johnny Walker Black & White
Staring at a biscuit and a lukewarm cup of tea
Feeling kind of granny-ish, but at least I’m free
Thank god, I’m free.

Looking for my car keys
Thought I’d left them on the door
Can’t remember in- or outside
What’s that vomit on the floor

Gosh it’s nearly Monday
And I haven’t seen my kid
I guess that’s kind of normal
For men who live like shit

I’m free
I’m free

Nice mix. I like the melody. And your vocals and lyrics are cool. I like that deep bass like riff that carry's through. Love the "I'm free part. This is well done!

Such a pro sounding track. I love that d-tuned twangy guitar riff and swinging shuffle groove. This has a cool Thompson Twins vibe, mixing techno with some very cool guitar tones. Great melody and vocal.

I like the techno feel on the drums, feels like The Cure may have been an influence. I can relate to the lyric. Nice pro sounding mix.

It's great to hear your voice again,
...Walter, and your music and approach... That kertwangy guitar riff is infectious, and you build a lot of song off of it... Did you use a guitar, or is it a keyboard thing?

Great low key irony on this...

Hey Ed
No strings attached here... only B&W keys. I'm such a bloody cheater...
Thanks again for popping in, mate!

enough irony in your diet?
Always good to get a big dose of Walter, super to hear you around here again. Your works are always so inventive and crisp, and dark. Perhaps you will be free to make more music here? :-)
ttfn,

Thank God you're Free…
Hah! This is very clever... Really enjoying it! I love the irony of the lyric, and the way you sing "I'm free" makes it feel both free and like weeping at the same time… Sometimes freedom isn't all that it's cracked up to be!

Happy birthday!
