Description
A friend needed a song for a doc he's working on for a software company so voila. I had no clue what genre to put this under....until Tom suggested folk and then I realized it inhabited a folkish spirit.

Lyrics
Sophisticated geek, that's who you wanna be
Gonna teach your laptop to say 'I Love You' in Japanese.
Gotta keep your cell phone on even when you in bed asleep.
Thought I heard your web cam say 'excuse me and thank you please.'

Sophisticated geek, that is who I wanna be
Gotta keep my mind on even when i watch TV
Gotta get my groove on even when they watching me
And I thought I heard you say 'I love you' in Japanese

Take it out of Other
Put this fine, funny piece in Folk, or Pop, anyplace but
Other. Very nicely done, BoiAfrica. Cool piece.

I love your close-up voice again...
... lovely stuff. You manage to create a lovely groove with
very few elements.

Thanks mando, I always struggle with the mix, I do these at my friend's
computer and we're never quite sure how much vocal is too much, I'm still at
a self conscious place with my vocals but its always fun to sing and that's all
that matters right. Thanks for the support. gosh I LOVE THIS SITE!

That's It!
I've heard enough and I've officiallly marked myself as a
BoiAfrica fan. When do I get my autographed 8x10?

You are just a wonderful, wonderful songwriter and I think
your vocal instincts on this song were just terrific. Just
enough ommph, not too little at all. I think the
background vocals are terrific.

Hooray! After hearing your first song I really hoped you
stick around here; I'm so glad you have.

That's It!
Aww so sweet, thanx ledebutant, I'm sending out those 8X10s soon, hehehe.
Yeah, Im glad to stick around, if y'all keep washing me in compliments I'll
have no other choice than to send all my fans to disney world or something,
once those royalty fees start kicking in.

Thanks for the support.

Wowow!
Your voice is sensational, BoiAfrica. It naturally has a
lovely tone to it, but you also use it VERY cleverly to get
incredible depth of expression. Seems to me your voice is
at its strongest when it's soft and understated because
that's where you get the most expression into it.

It's a lovely song with a catchy rhythm and nice chord
structure. The warm but simple guitar arrangement is
perfect for it too. Love it.

Wowow!
thanx Rebsie, from you that's a huuuge compliment, I keep listening to
Pictures in Heat and grooving to that certain something in your voice. I was
watching an episode of Real World on mTV the other day and I honestly said,
pictures in heat would go so much better with this montage.

thanx :)
