Lyrics
You pack your things
youre heading down town
nobodys getting the better of you
you have regrets that wont bring you down
nobodys getting the better of you
you dont care what they say
youre tired of hearing that same old speach again
you already know whats right for you
youre gonna make your life in the big city

come and get it if you want it so bad
theres really nothing here
thats worth being had
its an incredible life
if you stay on your feet
theres no room at the top
but youll be queen of the streets
if you want it all
come on and get it all
mean mean streets
not a pillow fight
you got your hookers and your junkies
staying up all night
thats right baby you should come on down
we're gonna fit your head with a shiny crown
youre not a looser until you meet the users
youre not a user till you meet the street

come and get it if you want it so bad
theres really nothing here
thats worth being had
its an incredible life
if you stay on your feet
theres no room at the top
but youll be queen of the streets
if you want it all
come on and get it all
you better come on and get it now
come and get it if you want it so bad
theres really nothing here
thats worth being had
its an incredible life
if you stay on your feet
theres no room at the top
but youll be queen of the streets
if you want it all
come on and get it all

This is different from what I heard from you before man. You keep surprising me. This has a early 90s vibe, I think because of the synths and the drums. But more powerful, kinda power-drum&bass-techno. Love the synth in the chorus and the uh-uh in the second verse. It lightens the whole thing, makes me smile.
The mix sounds very good. Lyrics and vox performance are great as always, this time lyrics are closer to street level, which makes sense ;-)

I like the contrast of the heavy beat and the round, low synth bass with the various chiming keyboard tones. "There's no room at the top but you'll be queen of the streets" line is especially memorable--really jumps out of the song.

Cool song
Great singing as always. I like the synths and drums that you used in the soundbed. The lyrics tell an interesting story that is tough and real. I like the modern popular feel of the song.

Nicely done.

Zero tolerance - You can't listen and NOT wanna jump up and shake it.
I truly appreciate the fusing of rock with the irresistible dance-ability and the great match of vocal delivery with those dirty neon-lit lyrics. It kind of reminds me a little of the general category into which I also put the band Of Montreal. Dance garage? Dunno, and sorry I even attempt to label it. It's smart, butt-shaking, take-no-prisoners stuff. Also there's a crazy freaky-good artist named borris with a couple of older tunes here... mostly at iComps but worth checking out for sure. THX FOR THE DL!

Unique and Familiar
Unique and Familiar
There’s something about your voice that sounds so familiar yet I can never seem to place it. This is a great piece of synth-pop that truly rocks. Very unique composition with an extremely interesting arrangement.

Hmm
thought provoking ...cold and stark,and probably very truthful,well not probably,really truthful...the streets are not paved with gold.This carries a message that kids and grownups alike should heed ,it is a jungle out there .Take care .

Cool post Gaylen
Lots of interest in there - great lyrics, and I like the minimal synths and random-sounding bgv. The style is way outside my listening experience, but it moves along very nicely - sitting still is definitely not an option. I often contemplate using mainly drums and bass in a song, but shy away because it seems too difficult to do well. You've done it well!
Cheers,
