The List

You’re making a wish, you’re breaking a dish
In another way on another day
Make a stand, misunderstand
Try to try, but don’t try to try
Fill a hole and steal you’re soul
Do a dance and take a chance
People walk not making small talk
Take a break for goodness sake

Make a list of the things that you left in the rain

Buy a gun just for fun
Build a chair don’t comb your hair
Butterflies and dragonflies
Lazy flies all around this guy
Jealousy and agony
Modesty not racially
Atomic bomb and sing a song
Haunted house, electric mouse

Make a list of the things that you left in the rain

Make a scene casually
Watch the atom turn to green
Greet the host and do your most
Drink your wine and make a toast
Doing fine within my mind
A thousand million left behind
Say the name, who’s to say?
Get a pen and start to

Make a list of the things that you left in the rain

I love that "lift" on "ra-----in"
The two chords get a little redundant, but they seem to fit the list okay. But that doesn't make for a song I'd like to listen to over and over again. And yet, that's maybe not the purpose anyway. On some level, though, this absolutely works!... In my limited thinking, I just can't figure out what that is. I suppose that it's to each his own, then. ... the mix is awfully soft. Crank it up a couple three notches.

lavalamp said 3164 days ago (August 26th, 2010)
Well, well
Thanks for the honesty Paul. I've given up writing complicated songs a while back and decided to take a sort inspirational approach. Just whatever comes to me. Most non-musicians don't even care, or know, if a song is simple or complicated. So, I decided to write songs that entertain and not impress musicians (That's too hard anyway). But every now and then I'll turn a nice one out.

The mix maybe just a victim of GB?

I hope it entertained you at some level.

This reminds me of "Venus", but I like it better ;) Nice beat happening and I really like the band - the chorus really works for me. No nits :)
I agree with Jack - it's a good 'un!

Cool track Dave
I like the chorus a lot - very Kinks sounding to me. Excellent use of acoustic guitar in a rock song. Then a great electric solo - one of your finest moments.

Atomic Bomb and Sing a Song
Hey Dave,

I just discovered something very interesting about your song... it works better if you crank it.

Just an observation that I thought I'd share.

You have some almost "signature" chord changes that when I hear them, I know it's one of your tunes. Really like the inventive hyper wordy verses and I always dig your voice.

Good crisp, driving, strumming guitars and the spooky lead was all I need to hit that download button.

Thanks Dave. I always enjoy your music buddy.

Electric Mouse
Leaving an electric mouse in the rain is a terrible idea. But writing a song about it. That seventh that starts the chorus is juicy. I'm also a big fan of the guitar tone. Sounds like you're playing it in an empty warehouse. I listened at a completely reasonable volume and it still rocked.

left out in the rain
The worst thing I ever left out in the rain was my Mike Schmidt signature baseball glove.

Thanks Eric

the list
well first of all...i was very disappointed with this ep of southpark. for me nothing beats world of warcraft or the trilogy where cartman freezes himself and wakes up in a world inspired by richard dawkins. ok back to the song (hits 'play').
love the groove intro....ok it's an old one but who cares - nothing's original....and anyway as soon as you're in you make it your own. love the chord sequence on the tag-line.
yeah...i love this...the sixties groove. too short!!!!

This was just an old tune from back in the day which I still had in my songbook. Glad you enjoyed it. I could have extended it, but hey!, it's not like we're getting paid. lol

make a list
great song. enjoyable psychedelic feel, most importantly it had lots of guitar!! neat mix of tones.
re: the lyrics, the "drink your wine" lyric jumped out the most... so I think I'll start with that one, maybe get around to the other things later!
Nice contrast between the verses and chorus, chord-wise... I liked that.
Applause!
