Description
Back in 2007 Jim Bouchard Had this great backing track called "no place for hate" So, I added a low key Guitar part and Vox. I tried to keep the Vocals as low key as I could and tried to paint a word picture. The Vox are
Completely off the cuff ,
1 take,
Fun!

Others have done something with this track but I don't remember who.
I recorded this in March 2007.

If I'd have known about them at the time I would have used pointless picks of course! #:)

Lyrics
Well you look around
at the room
y look up in the corner
y don't like whatca see
y see many years of grime
y see too much
y close your eyes

well your mother calls
y from the other room
Says come n do dishes
Honey soon
and your brother
he's lying on the sofa
watching cartoons
on a silly old TV
but you dont care
your gonna get out of here
someday

Well y boyfriend
y think he's good looking
and y good at cookin'
So y start a family
but there's no money
but there's lotta honey
and yo mama
started out that way

Well your Father when y knew him
long time ago
used to come and see you
and now the years have passed
the tears have passed
and your waiting
your waitin for nothing

Who needs school
who needs money
y got yer honey
and he's alright
the stove's a cookin
your good lookin
and it's a life it's alright

Your aunt Jessie
came here
just to see you
she heard some rumors
She heard you were leaving
Well thats absurd
you would never go away
you would never leave
you would never go
they love y so
but cha got yer honey
i don't know.

Jim and Neal!
A pretty perfect combination. Neal, I'm always impressed by what you do (and what, in this case, you choose to play along with). Your vocals are always crisp and clear, and you always seem to do "just enough" to get a great sound. The fact that you do "off the cuff" vocals amazes me.
A great track!
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

It works
Laid back yet intense.

Reminds me a little of early Velvets.

Great work

You got yer Honey
Wow this is terrific. Hard to believe that something this good is totally of the cuff. Love the vocals, I agree with the others that it sounds like Mark Knopfler. Cool progression and really nice guitar line.

yeah.... real good song.
Gilbert,

love your vocal here bro. You and Jim give us a fine song. Love your music... and thanks for that MacIdol comment.

This one really has a classic feel. I can imagine this slipped into a movie as a transition with video of this guy... waiting for nothing...

kudos to you both,
Jack

I should make it known that it was only the Lyrics and vocal that was off the cuff. The lead guitar was done 1st and took awhile. I was just thinking at first of keeping Jim's song an instrumental with my lead part but then thought what the heck, I'll try to add some vox and try to think of a scene and it just came out as you hear it. There were a few spots where you can sense some tentativeness. I was happy with the outcome though and don't know if I could ever come close to doing it again. Just one of those magic moments. #:)
Actually its the best way I know of to write songs, that is: "off the cuff." Most of my song are written that way. I will just get a groove going with a drum machine and sing whatever. Then I'll try to make a finished song out of it later. Many times it's very close to the end product. You should try this.

Off the cuff?
If I could produce songs like this off the cuff I would never leave my basement. The mood here's just perfect, and your vox sound excellent!

Lest I forget.
If it weren't for Jim's great track this song would not exist. I was elated when I heard his track and he posted it as an "Open Collaboration" and invited anyone to use it. I thought what a cool base to work with. I remember thinking the percussion was very, very nice and the chord structure also.
Jim Bouchard (Toots) is a great musician from Boston. He has written a great number of great songs and also under the name "Fritters" with Kelli King. I think most of his songs and the Fritters can be heard on Macidol.com. (Fritters are on MJ too.)
