Mr. Hughes Come Home

Get Flash to see this player.

This is a song I worked on 10 years ago all ready with the dynamic duo known as Joy Focus
This version didn't make the album, they decided to go in a more poppy direction and it turned out pretty good, but I always liked this version and since its not doing a lot of good just sitting on my hard drive I thought I'd share it with y'all.
I was coming of age when film maker John Hughes produced all those classic 80's coming of age movies so he'll always have a special place in my heart. This is a tribute to to John Hughes. The final version can be heard here

“you see us as you want to see us”

i hang on every word you say
fall for every thing you do
that’s what she wrote and then she threw it away

for now she’ll dance the night away
as the radio floods her room
maybe she’ll tell him another day

about all of her hoping and coping
the trial and error and terror of not finding love

she has no heroes to guide her
won’t stand a chance alone
teenage hope is lost without you
Mr. Hughes come home……

he puts the yearbook back on the shelf
and he whispers to himself
she’ll never fall for a guy like me

tonight he’ll plan out what he’d say
if her glance should come his way
he’s hoping she might get a chance to see

that his head’s full of dreaming and scheming
of uncompromising the prize that he sees in her heart

he has no heroes to guide her
won’t stand a chance alone
teenage hope is lost without you
Mr. Hughes come home

these times they blind and scatter
and adolescent mind
hopelessness is running rampant
take me to the time

where underdogs flourished
and best friends were nourished
by library weekend affairs
and homecoming dances
bred mismatched romances
transcending perception and care

don’t you forget about me
don’t don’t don’t you forget about me

we’ve no heroes to guide us
won’t stand a chance alone
all our hope is riding on you
Mr. Hughes come home

you’re the hero to guide us
Shermer hasn’t been outgrown
consider this your invitation
we’ll wait for you…. come home

Current and catchy
Love the progressiveness of this song. Badass guitar sound with some nice changes through out that grabs and captures your attention. Love the vocals, what a voice. Another fantastic tune shared by 11eyes.

Love the mix Ray
Punchy and dynamic bottom end and lots of light and shade in the arrangement. Love the vocals - something quite distinctive in there - and the guitars are full and confident (as usual).
Cool post!
Cheers from Oz,

Hey, I'm Ray, I play guitar and a few other things. I love writing and recording. I really enjoy discovering some great music here on MacJams. Many of the songs here are experiments or penultimate versions. It's great to get feedback before makin... [see more]
