Lyrics
Shakin' Not Stirred (Repeat)

Feel the needles of the Voodoo woman stab me in my heart
She controls my every move she tears my world apart
I can feel around the corner starring in my soul
I'll live today so I can die in vein tomorrow

Shakin' Not Stirred (Repeat)

Black magic Voodoo woman cast an evil spell
With magic potions deadly charms she comes straight from hell
She has a grip on I have to break the flow
So I can live today and die in vein tomorrow

Shakin' Not Stirred (Repeat)

Feel the needles of the Voodoo woman stab me in my heart
She controls every move she tears my life apart
Black magic voodoo woman cast an evil spell
With magic potions, deadly charms she comes straight from hell
She has a grip on me I have to break the flow
So I can live today and die in vein tomorrow

Very cool, well-written song for #50,000 which is awesome, I must say. It's incredibly catchy and loaded with hooks. I love the way you've gotten in a lot of James Bond-like sounds that aren't quite the theme, but so incredibly reminiscent of them, so it just evokes the whole spy thing so well. Every element is very well-executed and I love the vocal performance.

You're looking for suggestions and I would say that if you're going to do another mix it might be worth looking at moving your bass more up front. It's one of the coolest parts of the song and right now it's kind of blending with the effected vocal (and then the effected guitar solo) and I wonder if it would be better to feature it more. Overall though, I think this is probably in the area of nitpicking. I really enjoyed listening to this.

A few years back, another macjammer wanted to write a theme for Casino Royale, and since the producers weren't calling her, she went ahead and did it anyway. You might find it a fun listen, since she also did some evoking of Bond theme sounds.

I tried to pick up the bass but it seems to become overbearing. It maybe from the piano and bas on the same notes. Great suggestion though.I like the rythem myself.

This sounds complete to me - great production, and fab lyric. i love the cheesy english 'shaken not stirred', tho' the main vox are a tad buried for me.. but i like loud vocals.
Great track!

I just felt like it needed something else, Len had a good idea, some female vox with the strings. I think that might be a nice addition if I could find someone to do it. Thanks for taking a listen.

Thanks for listening Luna, I love your stuff and I appreciate your opinions. I'm glad you like it. I'm going to try to bring the vocals out more, I didn't think they would sound so underneath on here. When I play it through my stereo it sounds fuller. Thanks again.

You used the voice of
the only real "James Bond" of the lot, Sean Connery. All the rest are just pretended to the throne.

That said, I like what you've got so far, but it I think it could use some rippin' guitars weaving in and out of the mix for dramatic effect.

Great piece so far, now go for it.

nice
I like the spy feel. the main riff is appropriately hooky.
The reverb-y, tremolo guitar I think should be in more of the song. when it shows up it's perfect.

It funny you mentioned that about the signature bond sound on the guitar. I tried in more places in the song but it kind of sounded of overkill. I tried. Thanks for the comment and compliments.

Always a pleasure to hear from you Len. I love the bass rhythm as well, I thought maybe adding some harsh guitar riffs but stuck with the signature Bond sound. Still feel like its missing something, maybe in the bridge. Glad you enjoyed it.

I accidently hit the wrong button when I was trying to reply, but yes that would be great a female vocal along the strings. Your right though finding someone to do it though. Excellent catch on that.

Thanks, I am glad you liked it. I am learning to use the drum machines on my software "Magix Studio" so I haven't done anything complicated with it yet. I use to write more complicated songs but they took so much time, and I don't have enough time to do that for now. I'll be down loading some older stuff I did so keep an eye out. Thanks for listening,

I really has a spy music feel.
Everything is great but I think the song would be even better if you replace the drums for a more "human" set.
It would be perfect for the tune.

Thanks for listening Davis, I agree I could have turned the vox up a bit more, I didn't think they were that low when I listened through my stereo. My Casio is from like 1996. I am not even sure what the model it is, without looking. I got it for 180.00 bucks on sale out in L.A. so I could try and learn to play piano, never learned though. I use it to make my little archaic sounds and tinkle with single finger melody. Thanks again for listening.

tight...
nice compressions, I can tell you know what you're doing. really stylin' mix, well named, sounding really tight.

I don't know why you're asking for advice on this one, but I suppose if it were me, I would bring in some more organic drums to fill out the electro loop here and there, nothing too overstated. and maybe some grime in the bass, a bit of overdrive might help. but you're you, not me, and it's great as it is.

I appreciate the comments and advice. I just didn't feel like t was finished. I lost my bass guitar about a year and a half ago and I've been reduced to using my Casio keyboard for a bass. It totally limits what you can do. I hope to replace it this summer. My so called friend borrowed it(Bass) and them moved away with it. Thanks Again, The King
