Lyrics
my girlfriend is an alien

she is cold to the touch
but you know i like it that way
she is here from high above
from a planet far far away

she's the girl with a million eyes
the girl with the green skin
but you know shes the one that i always loved
from the star that was sparkalin

she's not from this place
my girlfriend's an alien
she lives in outer space
my girlfriend's an alien

well at first i was scared
cause this girl was really strange
and i never dated a girl
from outside of the milky way

took me on a rocket ship we'd go to venus
she took me all the way to mars
and now we're going to visit her parents
out in the suburbs out there in the stars

it doesn't matter how far away
how far away she gets from me
i can still feel her in the room
just like a stray moon beam

and then she'll play me a love song
on her electric space guitar
and i will be sure to listen to every note
cause i will soon play along

Hook Perfection
Good vibes on this fun tune. Clever lyrics fit the always stylish synth melodies and ear candy along the way. The subtle vocal harmonies in the chorus are well done. I like the self-depreciating tone of the singing and lyrics. Great work on all the elements of this song.

Your name fits!
From the opening synth salvo, I thought "80s!" This kinda has a vibe like "The Caaaahhhhs"... What a fun, enjoyable piece! Great neo-retro feel! Big smiles!

One more thing...
My seven year old daughter just yelled out "Play that song again, Daddy, I liked that!" No higher praise could I offer.

A fine slice of fantasy pop
Another fine slice of 80sboy fantasy pop. No mistaking your distinctive style, Mark. Catchy, well produced, quality synth and guitar work. Thanks for the post. Take care, Peter

melodic
another real hit.
Every element right in place.
Drums are great too.
all those many light-years would make her worth it.
She must be from the methane nebula.
synth solos are great.

Great stuff Mark

I particularly loved how you did the vocals for the last refrain..so much I thought: do that all the time, every chorus would be my advice. Amusing, catchy.. well written & performed. Oh.. I felt some of the sound FX things could be more blatant/prominent as you could easily get away with it in this.

alien concepts
What a catchy tune - it just zaps you right from the blast off … and it stays sonically inventive all the way to touchdown.

It's been a week since I heard it the first time … and it's been stuck in my head since as I've been walking around.

The lyrics are fun. If I could offer any feedback, I'd perhaps like to see the ambiguity played up a little bit more between the reality and fantasy of the girl's alien nature - I think there's space for more inventiveness there, but what's here is working … so maybe it's best not to try to change her?

Nice Clean Sound
There should be a movie made just so this song can be played at the end, with kitschy retro animation. Great Pop sound.

I'm a Gabrielle Drake / UFO fan, so I also appreciate the
photo above.

Only alien at prom
Fab tune. Love the retro sound. It's nice to have a girlfriend that none of the other guys at the prom know. Definite envy aura. Love it.
