Lyrics
summer haze
windy morning
i haven't seen you
in a thousand years

it's been a wild ride
today is yesterday
i close my eyes and
today is yesterday

runaway
i mourn your absence
now i embrace
your precious return

summer haze
windy morning
tomorrow brings another pang
of guilt and fear and rage

runaway
i mourn your absence
the day you left
has gone on forever

Good!
My only critism is that there doesn't feel to be clear emphasis
on the main instruments- this adds a trippy feel but is also
slightly jarring!
Check out my latest song called The Voyage

Good!
thanks space cowboy!!!! yes the trippy space can be jarring however we always seem to find some comfort there!!!

Wow on the production (vocal especially). It made me wonder
what the world of music would be like now if GarageBand
were around in 1966.
JOAN said 5094 days ago (July 9th, 2005)

hey mungo thanks... garageband and logic etc. may have a bigger impact on the future of music than any of us realize... look at what's happening already!!! you're the best...nevah change!!!

If today is yesterday...
...then that means tomorrow is actually today, which is
yesterday which means the day after tomorrow would have to
be today making yesterday tomorrow.

I just wanted to make sure I got that straight....

Damnit! I've gone back in time again...

Really cool tune by the way...

snowdragon said 5093 days ago (July 10th, 2005)
Today is the Yesterday
we'll worry about tomorrow. A helter skelter ode
ressurecting the spirit of the lizard king channeled thru
baron von tollbooth and the chrome nun. A happy trail of
quicksilver eight miles higher than an atomic rooster
watching big brother and uncle john's band eat hot tuna
and a moby grape. It's a beautiful day as - summer haze
is in my brain.

A lovely tune by the joans.

Today I had Honey Smacks for breakfast and
yesterday I had Golden Grahams. I liked the Honey
Smacks better... although, I never really liked Golden
Grahams, to be honest.

Oh, I liked this song, by the way. But I do have a
tendency to like your tunes.

I guess my point is this: Joan is like Honey Smacks.

If I had...
...a record label I would sign you guys up in a heart beat (and
I mean even before signing myself). One listening and this
song is stuck in my head! This is by far one of your best
mixes (I know I keep repating myself), but WOW. The
saxophone is fat, love it. A lot of Velvet vibes, maybe even
some Greaful Dead!? Love it, love it, it loves me!

Peace!

Lazy and crazy
I visualize a garage band playing in ripped T-shirts in an
old warehouse. Quite tired and/or just plain lazy. Just
pumping out the words ands music without being
bothered too much by strict cadence. The woman who
lives in the cottage across the street from the parts factory
can take it or leave it.

The music is done. What now? Drink beer and watch static
on TV?

I get a feeling of anemia listening to this. Doesn't mean
it's bad. It simply means we all can't donate blood today.

Lazy and crazy
I voted 8787, in case you got the impression from my goofy description
above that I didn't like the song. I actually do like it. It matches the angst and
deflation of spirit I feel some days. Please don't take my free-wheeling
associations too seriously. I'm just an old fart.
said 5076 days ago (July 27th, 2005)
Second listen
On second listen, I get a better impression of this song. Forget my
characterization as "lazy". I should have said "laid back". Laid back is good.
What I want to hear most in a future mix of this is more immediacy to the
vocals. They are set too far back in the reverberating warehouse space. Great
job, guys.

o--hm!
loovely! is there a roxy music/saxophonist from roxy
music fan amongst you?

JOAN said 5085 days ago (July 18th, 2005)
o--hm!
Andy Mackay (Roxy Music saxophonist) drops by all the time!!! Nah!!! only kidding! But when we really do need a sax our very own trevor has been known step up to the mike lay down some really cool tones!! Thanks for the Roxy reference!!!
