Description
This is one of those song ideas that generates numerous storylines leading off in multiple directions, which in turn leads to several production efforts piling up on the hard drive, none of which ever seem to capture the sum and substance of the idea.

This version strips away all of the social and political lyrical accretions and lets the song be a more simple expression. Still, there's plenty of clutter in the soundtrack, which is a rabbit hole in itself, I guess.

Lyrics
RABBIT HOLE

I can tell you want to go
Down that forbidden rabbit hole
You’re such a saucy sassy lass
Step right through the looking-glass

Our rendezvous was a resounding success
You left my space a total mess
It’s like a hurricane blew through my apartment
That’s okay - clean-up and maintenance that’s my department

Do you remember when
We first became friends
It was such a long long time ago
When we went down that rabbit hole

Plenty going on here to keep the entertainment coming. Unmistakeable guitar lines and quirky lyrics. All good fun!

Jumpy
I'm not the happiest with the overall balance of the soundtrack, but I guess you can't expect quality acoustics when you are recording in a hole.

STRIPPED AWAY
If that's the stripped down version then I can't imagine what else you had in there!

Imaginative lyrics, delivery and music.

Undeniably Warren!

Cheers

Inconsistency
I might not have been clear about the stripping part. I was specifically talking about the lyrics, which were originally bloated with political and social references, and that's what I put on a diet. At the same time, I kept adding sounds and notes, so I suppose that represents an inconsistency in the production.

Rabbit hole
Let's hope that was a long time ago. I'm so past drama.

Cool track, especially with the synths.

Anti-gravitas
I can sense that transcendence in your recent work. I like to think I've moved past the drama, but then a certain subject pops up and I feel myself getting sucked back into another rabbit hole. I need some anti-gravity boots : )

Inner vs. outer space
All of my production is done with headphones, so if it doesn't work there it won't work at all.

Alas, In Blunderland a fall is always a trip of one sort or another, leading to the most peculiar of surroundings, characters and circumstances.

I guess we've all been down one rabbit hole or another. Thanks for the glimpse into yours. ;)

A hole opens
Clever pun worked into an astute comment!

I could see a list coming out of this comment .. Thor in Thunderland .. Himmler in Hilterland .. Harry Hotspurs in Northumberland .. but perhaps that would be a rabbit hole in itself?

Time keeps slipping away from us, Tom, but I haven't ruled out the possibility of another collaboration someday : )

At the hop
I'm glad you hear you hear it that way because a song that references rabbits needs to have a bounce in it : )

I don't think anyone else sounds like this, Warren. I'd love to see an animated version.

Far in
Having nibbled on both sides of the mushroom, we never can really leave that psychedelic past behind when producing pieces like this. But why would we? Too much fun.
