Lyrics
Someone sent an email and it said to me
Come and hear my music now on your pc
I went where I was sent that night
Heard that song on the macjam site.
So I heard, I saw and then I stayed
And now I’ve got some music which must be played
Ain’t got no garageband – just ‘audacity’
And I can’t get to work for me

I tried to work this software but I just got in a mess
Can’t make out which button to press
I thought I had recorded but there was no sound
All this makes my head spin round

Things couldn’t get worse but they did just that,
I don’t get a picture or a slogan in chat.
So let’s fix it now – get this problem solved
Here’s the way it will be resolved

Every day that I’m alive I’m looking out for my G5
Or my faith will take a leap and I will find an ibook cheap
Won’t you pay
Straight away
Make my day
PLEASE X

Hardware:
well, not a mac obviously! The same guitar that I found behind the sofa 3 months ago but now it has new strings for the first time in 20 years, a plastic kazoo that I paid 50p for on holiday in devon, my new snowball (i'm lovin’ it!) and peter!
Software:
pffft!!!

Such Talent
Fun writing, fun singing. A very worthy cause indeed for the donation of used hardware (or were you insisting on new equipment only???).

Send a Mac to her ...
I do hope somebody will oblige since you asked so nicely.
I'd let you have my old one but it will only run System 7 so
it's useless for anything except ornamental purposes. (It
has, however, had an eighth of skunk dropped down the
back of it which has probably doubled its value.)

Very witty song, sweetly delivered. Peter's backing vocals
are ace.

still love your voice. guitar sounds great. love peter's backup
vocals.

i think you should send this to apple. let them use it in a
commercial. although it sounds more fitting for a VW
commercial (and i don't mean that in a bad way - they've
used nick drake's music!).

all in all, lovely. could only be better if it were done on a
mac.

Love it... so much fun...
Oh wait... you're serious! :-) OK, a word of advice then... in
order to make this sneaky plot work, you'll need to bring the
kazoo forward in the mix, add some weird distortion to it,
and try to sing off key, maybe detune the guitar...
unfortunately this was way too good... you won't get anybody
to send you a Mac just to make you stop if you're going to
produce enjoyable music like this!
ttfn,

Cameron said 5020 days ago (September 17th, 2005)
oooooo! kazooooo!
On this song, your very clever lyrics are delivered with
your usual "zing and zip" -- your voice is truly unique
with its expressively low, vibrant timbre, so everything
you sing comes vividly to life.

Your guitar playing ain't too shabby either! Obviously
you've shaken the dust off. Nice playing!

Peter's voice is a very good addition -- you two sound
very good together. Art imitating life!

The only problem with the kazoo is that there wasn't
MORE of it. It added a perfect whimsical touch to this
song. (Maybe you could collab with Mungo on a piece
called "Concerto for Kazoo and Cowbell"!)

As always, your songs bring a big smile to my face --
thanks for posting this! I look forward to hearing more.

If I win the lottery, on the other hand, I'll happily help you

Caroline, this is my favorite of yours so far. Jaunty,
pleading, clever and shameless. Great stuff! Great job on
the guitar with your new strings. Well done! And the
snowball sounds great. Kudos all around on this one!

Good... a little too good!
Oh dear - you had me convinced with all that 'Oh, I'm not really that musical, I just write lyrics and sing a bit', but this has let the cat out of the bag.

This a proper song, with a funny melody, proper guitar playing, clean, warm and charming vocals, and very witty lyrics.

Unfortunately, this makes me want to raise the critical bar higher - I love the sound of your voices together, but I wish they were blended better - that the timing was cleaner. I wish you'd tightened up a few of the lines. I wish you'd done a few more takes. I'm not sure the kazoo does it justice...

It's just the perfectionist in me coming out - I hope you understand I am saying this because of the potential in you that this song shows. Can't wait to hear what's next.

Good... a little too good!
oh john - now look what you've started - so tell me, when do i stop having a great time, meeting fun people who play enjoyable music, bashing out the odd song here and there myself and start worrying, re-doing and re-doing, feeling sick and nervous, caring, really caring because i have invested so much time? i'm far closer to that point than i ever intended to be when i came breezing through here in the first place!!!

i am grateful for your compliments and even more so for your criticisms (which i agree with, btw except for the one about the kazoo - no, no, you can't take that away from me!!)

of course i understand why you have said all this - i am a teacher, a woman, a wife, a mother - i too get frustrated when people refuse to meet their potential - when did you say you were submitting your next song??

thank you for taking the time and space both here and in your heart - i tell you what babe - i'll think about - let me know after the next one! one love john xxxx

Great stuff
Well, hardware failures are quite frustrating. You have focused that into a
great song. Folk music is unfortunatly is not heard much anymore and I
found this very refreshing. The vocals are good. I'm reminded of Herman's
Hermits. Sorry though, I'm using all my hardware but when I have some to
spare I'll think of you.

What fun! If I had one to send...
...the Mac would be in the mail...

Lonnie Donegan and Leadbelly are smiling!

There's a lot of "Take A Whiff (On Me)" to this one...in a good way...

Love that kazoo, especially after it first came in and surprised the heck
out of me...

And the vocals are robust and charming...

Neat.

I never wanted a mac- not being creative it was never needed.... then I
won one in a contest and here I am. Still have several of the dreaded PC's
and feel the have a place in the universe but mostly use the mac at home.
Very clever, entertaining song! Guitar and kazoo work very well together
along with your voice!

thank you so much but.... here's the rub.... i wish i understood enough to press all those buttons and create some of that ...... well, maybe not heavy stuff but, something with layers - lots of layers - which just goes to remind me that we should all be grateful for what we've got (or we won't know what is was 'til it's gone, they paved....) - the bear and i went to listen to something of yours too x

fell on this one
Was on the home page and saw your name there. Clicked on it and this is what I got.

Boy, did you have me crackin up.

Whew-hew do I love that Kazoo.

You ought to send this one to Steve Jobs for the Holiday ad campaign. It's a winner.

How did I ..

..miss this gem .. I know .. because I must prioritise
better!! Classic Caroline .. kazoo .. and fine tight
guitar playing too .. Pete's backing vocals are very
good too. A gem .. I'm sure the PC suffering is lessened by the puffering. Have a great time in the Nether-regions. :o)

I use audacity, try out LMMS it allows you to use soundfonts and import midi files if needed. (Garageband has issues with this)
