It's not like me


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a very natural song for me. It has elements of all my creative influences. The beginning part, a bit of a Velvet Underground, the second, a bit of a punk rock feel, and last part , a little trippy jazz thing.
Hope you like it.
This is a true "DAVE" song.

Lyrics
It's not like me

It's not like me
to go selling things door to door
And once more
You know the score

It's not like me
to go bitching and moaning around
Am I lost?
Is that profound?

Can anybody show me a sign?
Unlocking all the things that I find
Can anybody show me the way?
I'm losing things everyday

It's not like me
to go begging on my banded knee
Can't you see?
I want harmony

Can anyone lend me some brains?
I'm losing things everyday
Selling cows for three meager beans
Nobody knows what I mean

Thanks a ton
Sorry if I haven't been around in a while. Thanks for your comments, Birdman. It wasn't so much a country song, more of a Velvet Underground rip-off.
Glad you liked it.
I'll check out some of your stuff later.

Twister runs
I dig the runs in between verse. Reminded me of the Wizard of Oz for some reason. Made the song unique. I liked the stereo aspect of them too.

i'm not hearing the Beatles tho, rather the Velvet Underground (Loaded era). I love this, very catchy and still twisted. great job.

oh, it's like you alright
Very cool tune Dave! there is a neat groove that a little laid back but moving forward at the same time. Really nice layering throughout.
Really like the decending chord segment with that really whacked guitar weaving though it. Great imagination for different yet still a pop flavor.

Worth the Wait
The wait I'm referring to is MacJam's refusal to load this morning. . . But this song made coming back over and over again worth it. I have to agree with Lengold (and believe me, it's difficult for me to be agreeing with a rock) that I'd have liked to read the lyrics, as the vocals were great, but not always easy to understand.

I forget now who said it, but I agree that it's a beautifully laid back song that doesn't fall into the trap of going nowhere. If you ever bring out a Greatest Hits album, I'd definitely add this song to it.

Nice!
I enjoyed this one- very catchy lyrics! I guess I can relate to them because they kinda describe the past month for me, haha! I thought the mix sounds great as well- nice separation/depth.

Dave, old man, you've got such a wide range of styles. You are always exploring. Good for you. This is definitely one of my favorites of yours. I feel good.

I know what you mean, and now I'm really inspired.

Oh yeah!
Hey! Sorry I'm late bro! I've had a lot of catching up to do.

Really nice tune here man. Love the gentle funk of main parts, and the jazzy-psyche change up was unexpected but very cool.

As always your vocal performance is pro.

Bravo!

be well!

Nice, nice track
I love the mix of styles, and the playing is great. It's catchy, and smart (love the lyrics) and sticks in the head. Love the fadeout ending too. Sorry it took me so long to find this one! Nice work. Peace.
