Lyrics
Let me sleep
Don't want to save the world today
Let me sleep
Don't you know I need the rest!

Let me sleep
Don't want to help my friends today
Let me sleep
Don't you know I need the rest!

Let me sleep
Don't want to make things right today
Let me sleep
Don't you know I need the rest!

For the rest of my life, I need rest...

This is wacked!
So, where are you going with this? I like it! I guess you are in your own little world today Doug (};-P) I dig the chord progression and the "out there" vibe it conveys, at least it does to me anyway! Solid production and a firm bed. A lot of possibilities here my friend.

Going?!
Geeze, I forgot to go somewhere!

Seriously, thanks for the visit, Al. I came up with the idea of the lyrics a few weeks ago. The twisted chords came last night, just in time for a five hour free slot in my schedule, today. A roll of the dice and there ya have it!

Thanks Man,
Doug

The pieces of the puzzle...
...are almost in place. Some are missing... but I'm sure you'll find them. A good start. There are a few things I'd like you to consider.

Center the vocals... they appear to be slightly to the left. Until the guitar solo, they are the main feature.

You have a reccuring chorus, or refrain, in there which I feel should have lyrics sung over them. Perhaps harmonies. The drums need some adjusting and dynamics in a few places.

The guitars could pan L-&-R, doubled and offset to achieve a wrapping effect (except for the lead solo). This would free up the center soundfield to embrace the vocals.

Worry about the production after the elements are all in the right places.

Peace,
Alimar

At above average, I feel you can improve this with a little tenacity.

Cool
Al! I thought about some harmonies during the transitive parts, too. I might try without words, first. Maybe some sort of chant.

Thanks for the tips!

Hey Hoke
Thanks for the listen! Wow, that's a new one. It's nice getting comparisons to different artists. Sometimes I will composite all of these artist references and come up with a "Super Jammer" profile!

Pretty nice Doug....
Interesting vocal experiment indeed. Sounds Lennon-ish in spots dontcha know...

I agree with Alvin. "This is wacked." But in a very cool and artsy way. Although there are any number of things one could do to spice up a piece like this, I frankly like the minamalist approach you've adopted here. I only wish your tasty electric leads were a tad more to the fore...

Be well bro!

Thanks Mike!
Glad for the visit! I think I will work on this one, per Alimar. It does seem a bit all mushed together.

Thanks for the guitar vote, my friend!

Nice to see you again! I just can't get away from this jazzy stuff. Maybe it's a lack of creativity?! Who knows.

Thanks bud!

Yawning
You have an interesting song brewing here. The vocals bring to mind a character who does not want to get out of bed :) I detect some stretching and yawning throughout. Maybe if you do a chorus, they should be other voices, nagging the sleeper to wake! Fun tune.

Thanks

Zzzzzzzzz - in a positive style.
Mmmm digging your sleepy delivery, you really cannot be arsed huh?
And yet you stay in key which is a testament to your innate sense of calm.
Nice wee melody Dougie. For some reason I hear Chris Montez on a heavy valium trip and that virtually guarantees a potential number 8 in the Fiji hot 100. Avoir de la chance.

Thanks for visiting! This is "proof of play" on macjams. It's nice being able to experiment with stuff, here!

As soon as I get a minute and some ram, I'm going to readdress this one!

Mr Post Poster!
Glad you liked the calm. Who knows where the melody came from. Funny Montez comment! Although I don't remember listening to much of his stuff. Valium! Ha ha ha...yes...

nice
very funny and creative stuff here. i assume you are the weird, yet very kind and caring type? LOL is that original guitar? keep up the useless and entertaining music dude love it. nice to get away from the mainstream.
Doadars Uncle said 4217 days ago (December 7th, 2007)
Thanks for the visit Mr. Foil
I'm more of a fly on the wall. No one pays much attention to me, unless I'm buzzing around!

But a certain amount of anonymity is good. It keeps me out of trouble... usually.

Thanks for the vote for originality! It's fun trying to produce things that just come to mind (not trying to fit it in with anything, but sometimes I just can't help it!)

Peace,
Doug
