Description
XMaramena was looking for some mainstream pop lyrics. well I can't write those. BUT I was thinking of trying to, and suddenly this song popped into my head as I was getting in the shower. I wrote the song in 2 minutes, got out of the shower and just recorded it. it's supposed to have lots of technology like the young people like, and supposed to have janet jackson singing it. well, that didn't work.

I used the default techno setup in Logic Express and played the drums with my fingers. those don't work either.

I tried to clean up the synths, and sound like kraftwerk or bruce haack. THAT didn't work.

I tried to make a quick bass loop. it is so off it's pitiful. lol that's what I get for being instantaneously inspired.

so this supposed pop hit is a huge mess, and I don't care. still get to sit around the house in my dirty underwear.

where is janet jackson when I need her?

ps one day I am going to figure out some sort of vocoder. for now we are spared. see we have something to be grateful for!

This has got to be the best song description I have ever read!

And I really like the song too. Especially the 2:36 - 3:09-part, it just blew my mind! Lovely synths!

Too much fun
I'm sure if you send this to Janet's people they'll make sure she hears it. If she's feeling good that day, who knows where it might go...
Good stuff Eddie: you should take 2 minute showers more often maybe.

Oh great stuff...
there is a Jacksonesque quality to it ,it's probably great for body poppin'....(though to be fair these days my body pops just getting out of bed opr up from a chair !!)

For me the instant spontaneity of it makes it fresh and springy....sometimes the eledctronic genre can sound too over engineered....(and I think that is no fault of the composer or musician but just the mechanical nature of stringing the pieces together).....right before I burble my way into a bar fight i'm off ....good stuff ,Cheers
