Description
BTransue mentioned I could "Tinker" on a little jam of his (www.macjams.com/song/53250) called Cramp .... I "tinkered" and then thought maybe (as is my usual over-thinking process) ... it needed a little *ugly* in it somewhere .... hahahaha so I borrowed a little snippet from a song I did a while back with Scofugate (www.macjams.com/song/60111) called "I'm sorry you're such a loser" .... and just sort of concocted THIS one simply called "CRAMP" .... it's about "EGO's" .....

Lyrics
You don’t want to know me
When I’m not undressed
You might have mistaken me for a trinket
You might have failed my test
You said maybe I can squeeze you in
I’ll listen once per week
But for those other days
Baby it’s all about ME
Take my picture, watch me pose
Listen to my song
Ooh baby you just wait for me and get undressed
Cause that’s where you belong
Did you take the time to see
That I might feel ignored
Or was I merely displayed
So that you could feel adored
I can’t walk down a one way street
I’m a person too
And if you can’t take the time to see that
Oh then baby we’re through

You don’t want to know me
When I’m not undressed
When my wallet’s empty
You are not impressed
You don’t want to know me
When I’m not undressed
You have mistaken me for a trinket
You have failed my test
You have failed my test

Oh I won’t - I won’t be your sexy girl
Put my hands all over you
Until you change directions
And see I’m a person too

Moody
The guitar tones used in the first part of the song create a mood that suits the lyrics and the vocal tone. Lyrics open up the difficulty of modern relationships. THe change in tone at 3.08 is striking and certainly gets some anger into the delivery. Impressive work!

Thanks Philip ....
... I do enjoy a bit of anger in some of my tunes ... the concept I used in this one is not a new one to me .... heh heh it has appeared in a few of my tunes I think .... starts off innocent enough ....

Puts me in mind of
Prince's 'Die 4 The Tears In Ue Eyes' ... Wonderfully understated production ... also I'm hearing echoes of some of the recordings The Beatles did when they decided to come off the road and concentrate on recording ... enjoyed my listen and thanx for the download :)

This is down
and dirty ....especially the part deux of it....Egocramp.....I suspect that there is something of a personal axe to grind lurking behind this.....but being a gennleman I won't ask !

Interesting ,moody and rocky ,good too.

Brilliant!
Great work here Alannah and Scofugate!
Lyrics are great too!
A one way street is what I finds with so many shallow people too, who just consider themselves and their egos above anyone else.
Love the break in this song where I can hear the frustration and anger coming out. Hopefully this has got it off your chest hahahaha.

CRAMP
Great job! There is no mistaking how you feel and the lyric brings it in no uncertain terms. I like the way the melody starts down and then rises into the chorus. The 2 "starter" songs work well together. Strong vocals.

Great vocals..
I like your voice a lot, just find this kind of music does not help it shine
or so I think...
Would love to hear you do something a little less crazy.....

But don't mind me I'm just an aged Man....

Impressive vocals!
I certainly wasn't singing along with this! That's a good thing too! Dig it! I think I need therapy after listening to this...

I could probably use some therapy too ....
... hahaha thanks for stopping by for the listen and comment Loob .... my mojo is missing again ... not sure when I will get around to tinkering again .... but I should probably lay off the metal for a while .... let everyone's hair grow back .....

Vocals style
I like the vocals and effects on the first part of the song. Kinda reminds me of some of the stuff I try to do, having a haunting type feel to vocals. I really like both parts of this song with the 1st part being my fav of the 2, I did like the ( Dirty ) as you called it, but not sure it fit well with the 1st part. I think you should tailor make a ( drity part ) to fit. Instead of grabbing a piece of a song you did another time.

I hear what you are saying ....
... but here's my dilemma ...I don't know HOW to make the musical soundbed part very well .... for the most part I rely on the kindness of MJers to make the backing tracks and I just sing all over them .... this was just a little "rage" thing I did one night after drinking too much beer hahahahaha
