Description
So, this is a follow-up to Pulse, using a similar feel and sounds. Sounds to me like I'm cornering the market as a sort of Gothic Barry White. There is a Bryan ferry influence in here, under the Bowie.

Lyric has sort of got a Great Gatsby inspired vibe.

I'm about to get swallowed by work, so apologies if I don't reply.
As ever, i may have posted this to hasty, so the mix probably needs another pass.

Lyrics
In your dream home, baby
The party never ends
Lying to your lovers
Sleeping with their friends.
Weeping vampire tears for us
The not so beautiful
Undercover in the noise
With these skinny boys

Skinny boys love skinny girls love skinny boys

In your dream home, baby
Your heart will never break
Sex in unmarked spaces
The photographs faked.
I see them walk in two by two
Man, I'm so confused
A freaky, WASP Helen of Troy
Launching skinny boys

Seconds of elation
Our faces pressed against the fame
What's your name?

In your dream home, baby
Where I came undone
Bodies melt like snowmen
Ambushed by the sun.
Skin and chrome together, yeah,
Fascination framed
Undercover in the noise
With those skinny boys

You're really hitting lately - great track. Love the percolating rhythm and the way you wait to bring in the scratch guitar. Excellent mix.

This should be on iTunes!
Or on a movie sound-track. It has bags of atmosphere and the clear enunciation means I didn't have to read the lyrics to find out what they were (first thing I normally do is click on the section header to hide them and then see if I can hear them instead).

I'd often fudge words I couldn't spell, leaving the possible intent of many spellings. (never fooled the teacher). Your music doesn't fudge. It's not that the lyrics aren't evocative, they are, yet they're strong and confident as is your music. You seem to know what you want and know how to get it.
Great Song Steve,

"Gothic Barry White" :)
Great sound Steve, and a wonderfully commercial song. It really is a bit of an inspiration having you back at MJ!

Love it!! I am a fan of Ferry and Bowie and you capture the essence of both these artists as well as your own style.
I would have liked to hear a bit more reverb in the mix perhaps? Apart from that a perfect mix

Very well produced
What else is new. I was listening to iTunes Radio and quickly shifted to your new song upon reading my email notification, and I thought your sound was crisper and better than the professionally engineered commercial sounds and songs out there. Awesome song as always. Love the voice, the intriguing lyrics and the sharp sound overall.

Love the arrangement - there's always something interesting going on. Thought-provoking lyrics and a powerfully understated vocal, if that makes sense. Impressive!

Lot's of 80's love going here. A real dose of Bowie, and no small bit of Clash I think as well. A Gothic Barry White. Like that. The slap-back guitar is tres U2, but that's cool, steal from the best baby. Love when it opens up and gets lush in the choruses, re 2:19. Great to see a new post from you Steve. Keep 'em coming.
