Lyrics
main level map here keeping me straight
i need to get some rest its why i stay up late
been pulling up weeds all day and all night
backyard fencepost blocking out the light
its the growing season, so things are gonna grow
never knew the reason, til flora let me know
she said just stand back relax & feel the flow
magnetic waves are moving through
all of your good and bad days, flora says.
there’s a hummingbird behind you that you don’t see
cuz youre standing in a ditch with water up to your knee
you picked up something heavy up off the ground
and it hasn’t yet occurred to you to put it down

waves
the lyrics just popped into my head and don't mean anything specific, but I guess electromagnetic radiation is pretty pervasive... thanks for the listen and comment ego!

rock and roll
i like the upbeat mood of this song. interesting guitar work and chord changes. i normally don't care too much for guitar solos but i like what you've done here with the change of pace during the brief solo. thanks for sharing your work here!

thanks
many thanks for checking out the song. for some reason throwing in a guitar solo is my default setting (maybe because guitar is the only thing I can sort of do properly), glad it didn't overstay its welcome!

i hear marc bolan in this....it's like he cut his hair and went to high school.
love it.....quirky.....especially when that jazz organ comes in and throws the piece against the wall. it's like you have so many genres going on here.....impossibly to pigeon-hole.....the mark of a true artist.
dude....brilliant.

Magnetic waves
Someone's got to be in charge of pulling out those backyard weeds : )

Nice rollicking rocker you have put together here.

I like how that synthesizer mimics the magnetic waves you are singing about. Or at least in my mind that's what is happening!

HOLY MAMA IS THIS POWERFUL!
Big chords, so nice to year this wild ride progression stuff you've got. So much fun, I want to punch a wall...Replacements, Big Star I don't know who else comes to mind...second some of the moodier stuff on Abbey Road..can't say enough. This mp3 is mine! BTW good to be back. (Gave up studio play for a while, but I'm still here.)

don't punch the wall... I once woke up in the recovery room next to someone who did that... his hand looked frightening. Really glad you liked, welcome back!

Know how you feel
about reposting.
Sucks to loose thoughtful comments.
Don’t know how thoughtful this one is but I can tell you I like the tone you set here.
Unusual rising passages that work.
Good one.
Cheers,
Charlie

I had noticed that I was always instinctively going for descending patterns.
thought i'd go the other way a la brian wilson or maybe pete townshend? not quite as successfully as those two I hasten to add!
