Wonder Whirled


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
In a failed effort to turn Tempie's toon Knock On Wood into a robot Muskat Love song, we (Eric and Bob) decided to take it down that dirty path ourselves without Craig's permission. That seems to be a His Boy Sherman protocol.

Eric rocked the guitars, the piano parts and sang his little heart out. Bob just kept pushing buttons and pushing the accelerator, trying to see if they could out run the hunter killer robots.

So here's our cover of Tempie's Knock On Wood - We called it Wonder Whirled.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Lyrics
God as my witness
i've lived enough to know
that i've left a trail of heartache behind me
like blood on the snow
i can't believe that i don't spook you
i can't believe you stay
the sunrise every morning surprises me
less than your sunny face
and i'm amazed by every day

don't look a gift horse in the mouth
let sleeping dogs lie
don't cast no doubts
i know i'm tempting fate
but knock on wood
and let me say
that you, might be a wonder of the world
yeah you
might be a wonder of the world
yeah you
might be a wonder of the world

you're not some
wide eyed girl just
loosed from her daddy's keep
so it beats me to tears how come you
took up with me
i can't believe that you don't quit me
i can't believe you stay
the sunrise every morning
surprises me less than your sunny face
and i'm amazed by every day

interesting mesh of the new-wavey synths with the motownish guitar and keys... sounds fantastic. and of course the tempie songwriting magic never disappoints.

What a wonderful whirled
Thanks for "letting" us get after this tune. It's a wonderful song and a beautiful tribute. Mrs. Tempie is a lucky lady. Thank god the T1000's didn't catch us.

you didn't forget the keytar right? the girls love that thing
ah man happy birthday to me. i bet when christmas break is over the cool kids are going to talk to me. SWEET motown verse. the synthy arena chorus smokes like two guys with a synthesizer and a smoke machine at a bar mitzvah. the break is killer too.

Great clean production
the snare was sitting right in front of me - almost visible. Excellent redo of a cool song.

Very good song!
I like a lot about this song except the mix. With a better mix you would really have something here. IMO the drums are too loud and your vocals are not loud enough.
Love the song though.

Now this sure is a change of pace for you guys. I like the lead vocal a lot. This has a great Joe Jackson vibe. By the way......is she really going out with him?
