Stalks Like An Animal


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
i recorded the music to this around 5 months ago. just wasn't inspired to come up with any lyrics. so it sat, along with a few other tunes. finally came up with some.

i thought i would give a blues based tune a different twist, notably in the chorus.

Lyrics
Stalks Like an Animal

the gal dancing to the player
mask of friday night mascara
you would think they lived for the night
sometimes you saw her darker side
a side you regret to meet

she stalks like an animal
no mercy on her face
she stalks like an animal
fresh blood stains on her teeth

whips and chains permeate her brain
a dominatrix it has been said
predatory license if she behaves
worse rumors have been said
down her path you will be led

she stalks like an animal
no mercy on her face
she stalks like an animal
fresh blood stains her teeth

she wants to know your heart
she loves to tear it apart
and you know you will be back

that guy a voyeur by sight
that gal an exhibitionist at night
throw them together just seems so right
a shot of love at first sight
a flash of light reflects from the eyes
crouch to pounce imagination runs wild
i lost my mtv

digging the guitar....
and the whole vibe. I think I dated this chick back in high school, deadly she was. I survived.

Vic, wow... what a cool song. funky in a rock sort of way. Excellent music and you vocal is clear and well - sung. Maybe Dire Strait found your mtv that you lost...

Funky syncopating town
Powerful guitars Vic and an interesting rhythm.

A Santana feel I thought.

You do know some strange people.....

Hi
Reminds me, for some reason, of Frak Zappa. Something about the composition. Nice guitar-work!

Really like the raw, syncopated vibe and the fantastic rhythm guitars driving this. Stylistic Lizard King lyrics and vocals. Yep, pretty cool. Thanks, Peter.

yeah, i was thinking of the 'in your face, live feel'. it was coming up with some lyrics that held this song back for several months. it's halloween time so i figured lyrics like these would be to far out of place

I wonder how many of us can relate to this one lol! I like how you have blended a blues based riff into your own unique style to create an interesting provocative piece here, Nice solo work too - I enjoyed this one Vic!

It's like the Doors reformed...
What a great soundscape, I REALLY really dig that accent guitar, and the bombastic keyboard entrance in the chorus... I wish I could let myself go and write/arrange this freely... A great time! smokin' and fitting solo work too. Great tone over that!

Guitars
are always great on your tunes Vic and this one is no exception, great playing.
A nice tight groove you play with some lovely tones.
Great lyrics and a great solo, hints of SRV in there.
Very much enjoyed.

Is this all guitar - bass - drums?
There's a keyboard sound that I've heard from your guitar before and it sounds really cool here. Also hearing some Clapton Cream era sound in your lead tone and playing. Excellent twist on the blues.

hi kevin
that is a keyboard this time around. however, a week and a half ago i got a boss GP 10. it also came with a roland GK-3 pickup. i've been spending so much time playing around with it, i haven't had time to record with it as of yet. so i can do guitar and midi controlling instead of using a keyboard.

Is there a keyboard mixed in with that guitar or is that just an effect? Very cool sound.

What they said...
I wish I had more knowledge of this kind of music. All I can say is that there's a certain "raw" quality to the musical backing as well as to the lyrics that give the whole number a real authentic kick from the first note onward. The guitar solo bridge is very cool, indeed. Nice one, Vic.

Some fine blues chords
I like your twist to the blues but definitely with the Holman vibe. Nice changes throughout the song, something I've grown to expect from you. Enjoyed.
