I Need, I Had, I Want

Description
Here's my new one. I wrote this with a FEMALE VOCAL in mind. A buddy of mine work with Dido in England and suggested that I write a song with her in mind and this is what came out. R.C. Brown did that lead guitar in the background, to give him credit.
Thanks for listening my good ladies and gentlemen.

Lyrics
I need, I want, I had

I tie my shoes, I drink a cup, I get my keys
and make a mad rush to the station
that is waiting for the people
I can see them with their hazes
oh their faces, it starts to rain
I am leaving, I am leaving and I'm never coming back
to the motion of emotion and the commotion of this potion
I have drunk and put away, in decay I am leaving
No more wasting my time and my time and my time......

Last night, I tried hard to get through
I know it doesn't make a difference

You'll probably never change your mind
Eventually, you will forget me

You, you're everything
that I need and I want and I had it
You, you're everything

I wrote a note, a glimpse of hope
Stuck on a wall the light shines through

Late afternoon, I think of you
The one who knew what I was made of

You, you're everything
that I need and I want and I had it
You, you're everything

I bet you look good on the dancefloor
dave - what a great track - you rough and ready vocal wroks really well with the beats, reminds me of Happy Mondays a bit. The instrumentation is great, really got a good groove, and the guitar sits nicely on this, all supporting your almost stream of conciousness vocal. Great.


Sudden end though - this feels like half the length it should be.

Yeah, I know...
Should have loop and faded for the ending. You're right. I was just testing you.
Thanks for listening, man.

Excellent Dave
You're really focusing in a sound all your own. Great driving beat that marches you right along. Some good depth and layers. Yeah the ending stops when you want to hear more. But very cool tune

Leave them wanting more
Well, I was never intended to sing this one, that's why I never properly ended it. I still want a female singer to sing on it and then I'll loop it and fade it or whatever.
Thanks a lot for you nice words, Vic. have a nice weekend.......and a productive one.

this goes
from strenght to strenght as it builds up, new order- style, you know, always getting more intensity even when it doesn't seem possible. The kicking in of the drums is really effective, in that respect.

Thanks CJ
Thanks for listening and for the kind words. This song is not really my style, so positive words are very encouraging.
Thanks again,

I like your vocals on this
No need to have someone else sing it. Your best track yet. Consider a version without the cut off ending? Also, the percussion is perhaps slightly too loud. I particularly like the vocal style and catchy tune aspect juxtaposed with an edgy feel.

Thanks for the comments and I hope you'll check some more of my stuff in the future.

This is great....
...lots of energy at a lot of different levels...

Would like the vox a bit louder...a female voice would be sweet there, I agree. But yours works very well...

...nice work, man...pass compliments to RC...

Thanks pick
I think a female voice would suit this type of song better.
But, thanks for encouraging my singing..........I try.
Thanks again Pick and stay tuned.

Nice tuneage...
...especially when the driving bass kicks in. Really like the tones on the guitars and the way you have layered the sounds. Very interesting use of percussion in places. Good work here Dave!

Be well man!
lavalamp said 4364 days ago (July 9th, 2007)
That's great coming from you
I'm really glad you like this one. It's not realy my specialty, but I like writing in different genres. And for someone like you to give positive feedback is very encouraging.
BTW, I wish I had DSL at home so I could go deeper into the site, but I can't. I have to do everything from work, but I try my best.
Over and out.

This makes me
want to move. Great song. The beats are terrific - maybe a little loud in the mix, or perhaps the vocal should just be higher? I know what you mean about writing for a certain kind of vocal, but I can't imagine this without the great performance you give here. Should I mention the abrupt ending, or have you gotten the hint?! You just get better and better, brother. Outstanding. Peace.

Wow! Seriously Impressed
with the lyrics. Really liked the music also. It ended rather abruptly though - the words "probably" and "a glimpse of hope" juxtapose the message of the rest of the song suggesting more. (hope and faith and love) Killer chorus!!! Glad to have given this one a listen.
lavalamp said 4364 days ago (July 9th, 2007)
Thanks a lot
I appreciate the fact that you like the lyrics. To me, that's the most important aspect to my songs, so thanks for listening closely. Please, check out some of my other stuff when you can.
Thanks again,

drakonis said 4361 days ago (July 12th, 2007)
pretty good piece, but rough
The lyrics are good and flow well through the music. The song backing is cool, and great job playing bass/guitar there. The singing is slightly too far back in the mix, and the melody line seemed slightly monotonous throughout, sort of droning on just a few notes... that may also be due to the very even rhythm of the lyrics flowing, which got almost hypnotic (good and bad thing.) Maybe a bigger change in singing/instruments between main and chorus? Maybe add a second voice singing harmony during the chorus? And having the end just chop off, I am assuming was a mistake... that was an abrupt way to end the song. It is best to listen to the final mp3 before posting it, and make sure all is well, don't rush it.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Loved to hear from you.

Excellent bass lines and drum production
I also hear a little Happy Mondays (the world needs more HMs). Circular guitar riffing gets me very time. Nice background vocals too. Cool track.
