Fly Me Away


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I know I haven't been around a while, but I have finally gotten hooked up with a nice DSL connection at home. (Always had to do it from work, which was a pain)

This song is about not being able to relax. If this problem has a better name please let me know.
I used a little GB keyboard loop at the beginning, if you recognize it.
I hope song has enough little tid bits to keep you listening for a hundred years.
Just a fun song and enjoy.

Lyrics
Fly Me Away

Every time I have the time
Elephants are on my mind

Temperature is getting low
Everybody has to go

Oh won't you fly me away, oh fly me away
Oh hey, hey, hey
Oh hey, hey, hey

Astronauts in outer space
Everybody has their place

There is nothing in this bag
Everything is up for grabs

Oh won't you fly me away, oh fly me away
oh hey, hey, hey
oh hey, hey, hey

Floating high in the atmosphere
Everyone is full of fear

No one sees me I want to go
Can you take me? Let me know

Every time I have the time
Elephants are on my mind

Oh won't you fly me away, oh fly me away
oh hey, hey, hey
oh, hey, hey

Sitting on a aero plane
Just waiting for the rain
to stop

Rainbow's coming on strong
and gleaming through the sky
time to go

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday
Some day gonna' get it on, gonna' get it on

Sitting on my balcony
and waiting for the rain
to start

Sleeping in my good old bed
just waiting for my head
to rise

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday
Some day gonna' get it on, gonna' get it on

Sitting here everyday
and thinking of a way
to get it on

Said: Sitting here every day
and thinking of a way
to get it on

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday
Some day gonna' get it on, gonna' get it on..........

Good to see and hear you David. This is a killer tune!

Super strong in all departments. A classic rock hit that can stand the test of time for a hundred years.

Luckily there are no elephant astronauts. Who needs that on there mind.

Thanks Good Man Vic

Cute
Yeah, this song is cute - fun and quirky, in a genre all of its own. i like your voice on this (Matt Johnson-ish) but the vox dont quite sit in the mix - maybe a touch sharp?

Great to have something new from ya - welcome back!

Love your honesty
I mean you compliment and you also tell what you thinks to be improved. That's what I'm always looking out for.

I agree with your critique. Sometimes, I need a second opinion.

Thanks Brother,

I'm happy that you've got your house set up and I expect you see your lamp around more often

Happy New Year!

Thanks GC
Love being back with you all. Drums were just GB loops as always. I don't know which on top of my head, but I find that part the hardest, finding the right drum sound. So, I especially appreciate this comment.

Great tune, and great
way to storm back into action! This is very effective as a pop/rock tune - it's catchy, humorous, and clever. Nice hooks, and engaging, memorable images and lines ("Every time I have the time, elephants are on my mind" - great line!) I'm delighted to have new music from you, and I hope there'll be much more forthcoming. Nice work. Peace.

Get It On
Catchy as hell. Love the "gonna' get it on" parts. Great vintage feel. Listening to this song I felt like I was transported back to a time of "free love" where people really where "gettin' it on" and were generally more happier and we were freer as a country (at least in the US). I'll have to listen to some of your earlier stuff!

Fun stuff
Quirky song.

I'm not sure that I care for the effect of the voice and the piano and the bass (and the guitar?) basically all playing the same melody. But as a special effect it's cool.
