sounds great, Daug. I was waiting for the do-wops, but I already knew beforehand things would get strange far before that happened. Slinky sexy.

Your ability to take the familiar and turn it on its head, while still retaining the essence of what made it memorable in the first place, is second to none, Daug. Liked this. Thanks.

Making time
Baroque, expressive, raucous rhythm and blues. I glad there's still time to make tome for this.

Hello Warren
Thanks for the kind words. Baroque? Andy called this approach "excessive elegance" I think. He may be right... Thanks for the shout out. See ya next time.

Keys to sexy living
There is a sense of more than one song going on at once, like tracks in different keys lifted from different classic tunes from a bygone era layered in a modern concept. The re-use of the shirt in your song art (which thankful was displayed and not turned into a giant "?" like all mine have been recently), is a perfect metaphor. Thanks for sharing this. Made me smile.

Hello Tobin
The visual is perfect for the concept my friend. Especially if ya really listen to how the thing works.

Db major. The idea is that the melodies talk to each other, complete each other over the rhythm section... so it's not a multiple songs notion as much as multiple voices in discussion. As in four gals at a bar having drinks on Ladies' Night and sharing stories.

Doo Wop, as Sammy points out, starts the program. The progression moves into the early 40s pop song territory; the build up to the horns features the F augmented sound, which seems to cause a pause and suspension before the minor harmony wanders into the horn section.

The 335 was tuned down to Dd from standard... The Gibson texture is altered, so I got an old-time single coil vibe, and the cliche lines I managed to play sound vital, but they are not... trick bag is still full :)

Thanks for stopping by... I appreciate the comments about structure and intention.

Cool how you turn a seemingly straightforward tune into something completely unique :-)
Zappa-esque approach
I really dig it!

You know, this probably the least tongue-in-cheek piece I've heard from you. Kind of a Ruben and the Jets doowop, but instrumental.

Hello Victor
Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate the big ears dropping by to listen. You have touched on a cultural misunderstanding, so, I will try and help out.

IMHO "Ruben and the Jets" is not a clever parody or a "cheeky project". It's much more, it's different. I will try and explain. R&J comes from outside the critical aspects available to the merely tongue-in-cheek enabled listener; beyond stark parody, useful commodity, or, working class angst: Different.

Perhaps I can suggest an alternate understanding, reference the t-i-c colorization, I hope this helps out.

Beyond "the fourth wall" and "the wink" is a vast intention we could call "the Extraverse". My contention is simply to reside in that most pleasant clime.

Why is this necessary? Imagine "the tongue in cheek" fails to express the divergence, will not sufficiently express the dissent at the heart of the issues... The simply t-i-c tradition is not sufficient for the purposes present to us through the Muse.

What is called progressive can not be challenged via a traditional t-i-c expression; this is powerless. "The Extraverse" provides the tools required to do the necessary work. Why? There is no contempt in the Extraverse. We have to express dissent beyond expressions of contempt, progressives hate themselves by definition, to reinforce self-loathing is clearly unproductive, but to offer an alternate world view? Viola! Healing can only come from outside the corrupt traditions/expressions in our culture.

For background please examine the evidence presented in the rise of what dominant media terms the "self-help movement", 1973 would be a good year to start the search perhaps... See for yourself.

I realized
that there is much more going on here than a casual listen would indicate. You've got the basic progression, processed guitar, and horns, but things are not quite what we think they are here. Love the interplay you have going on - almost like to voices wanting to say their own piece. Kind of together but not fully.

Creative work! Thanks.

Provocative fun.
A hay-wired classic that I can't tear my ears away from.
Love it.

Ya i'll have to say
you got my attention by the pic:)

Like that early rock blues feel. Quite cool and you really fooled me by the start of the tune. Kind of reminds me how Eric Clapton starts off some of his stage performances by doing something slow and then rockin and bopping!

Oh, my...
I don't understand everything that you are doing here, but I sure enjoyed listening to the wacky fun of it all. You tie it all together with that bass line that outlines the whole harmonic structure. The clever addition of different, crazy sounds keeps the whole thing interesting from beginning to end. (And the song "art" is, well, just so clever...Probably practical, too.) Thanks for the quirky number. So much fun to hear it.

Been here since the place opened. I hope you enjoy yourself here at MJ. In fall 2009, I erased the 60+ tunes I had posted since day one. MJ had changed, becoming hateful and repressive, and I needed to respond appropriately. What happe... [see more]
