Description
Brandon gave me a beautiful piece of music called "Let's Run Away." I didn't manage to use the title, but the concept of running away remained in this song. The lyrics are based on the life of a very good friend of mine.

I love Brandon's music to death and thought he was a dream to work with. He has been a true friend to me. I really encourage anyone who likes Mermaid to check out all of his other wonderful songs.

Lyrics
Mermaid

I once loved you,
but I fell into the sea and drowned.
The seaweed yanked me under;
the mermaids taught me
sad songs.

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
The salt in the water tore off my skin,
left me raw and aching,
but you threw me back in

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie lie lee lee lay
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie lie lee lee lay
All we had was a lie.

The mermaids swam away
and left me alone.
I learned how to swim
all on my own
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
You found a lifeboat,
sailed off in the spray,
left nothing behind
but the smell of decay.

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie lie lee lee lay
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie lie lee lee lay
I don't want this lie.

I washed up on the rocks
and found a real man,
grew legs so I could walk with him,
I left the past behind.
Lie, lie, lie,
I see you sailing off the horizon,
the wind blows my hair over my eyes
and you are gone.
Gone, gone, gone.

I'm walking barefoot,
feeling the grass between my toes,
watching the albatross fly.
The smell of sea salt
follows me everywhere,
but the reek of the water
will soon be gone.

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie lie lee lee lay
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie lie lee lee lay

He will hold me.
He will love me.
He will heal me.

Swimming in the groove
Thanks, Dion. If anyone knows a good groove, it's you. I appreciate your
comment tremendously. I was nervous about the fx, so I'm glad you
mentioned that you thought they were okay.

Fanks!
Noel Project said 4430 days ago (November 1st, 2005)
Best yet
It is a pleasure watching (and listening to) you grow as a songwriter. I
believe this is your best song yet. Mesmerizing, slightly creepy in that
ledebutant way - a good creepy - and lovely vocals. I think in this piece
your voice and harmonies are better than ever. But it is the device of
the 'lie' that sets this piece apart, lifts it up above the ordinary.

Brandon, the bed for this is perfect. An excellent vamp. So, with that, I
give you two what we all want (except maybe Lisa's friend, the former
mermaid with hair in her eyes) - straight 10s.

Dear Santa
Dear Santa, we need to talk midi keyboard in my stocking, also I desperately
need a mic stand so I can get rid of the stack of plastic tubs I'm currently
resting my mic on.

Oh. Farg. You're not Santa.

I'm so glad you like this song, Tom. You are such a generous friend. I
appreciate the early listens you gave as I was mixing this...and HEY! no key
change in this one. :-)

My songs are often creepy. I wish I could figure out where on earth that
comes from


Ed Hannifin said 4430 days ago (November 1st, 2005)
It's a funny thing about genres...
...as has been noted before in discussion of ledebutant efforts...

Sure, this is pop, among all the other things it is... but it's also the real
deal implied by the word 'progressive' and it out-progs so much of
what gets labeled prog...

The lyrical structure is great... that beautiful "lie, lie", not overdone...
The lyrics have layers and questions in them that are left in the
listener's hands...

The vocals are well done, great pitch and phrasing, and suited to the
emotion of the tune...

The instrumental bed Brandon put together is a great underpinning to
all of this... Brandon's synth stuff always sounds just off the beaten
path, and is the better for it...not yer usual sounds, but not sounding
like they're trying too hard to be not yer usual sounds, either...

I really like this...

Ed

It's a funny thing about genres...
Thanks so much, Ed. I had a rough time trying to decide where to put this
song. It could have fit into Electronica, too, I think. If you come back, Ed, I'd
be interested to know more about what makes this song prog. I know that I
like prog, but I don't understand the genre very well and would like to know
more.

In the end I chose Pop because I knew that would drive Brandon the craziest.
:-)

His stuff does always sound different and I really love that about this music,
too.

You are either the world's fastest typist or you do nothing but type MJ
comments all day. Thank you so much for your generosity. Make sure
thepeep hears this one, too, if you think it wouldn't creep him out. :-)
illuminati said 4430 days ago (November 1st, 2005)
Lisa, every song you post showcases your tremendous growth
as a songwriter. And as is usual for your songs, there is that heart-on-
your-sleeve honesty (though this is shrouded in myth) that is believable
and yet not sappy or saccharine. I think that is one your appeals to us as
listeners (and collaborators too, I'd guess).

Brandon:p, as others have mentioned, the music is really cool and really
out there. Great sounds
ledebutant said 4429 days ago (November 2nd, 2005)
Lisa, every song you post showcases your tremendous growth
Thank you so much, Matt. I'm having so much fun with this songwriting
thing, I think it's amazing that anyone else likes to listen to them.

Shrouded in myth...you're a very, very clever boy. Can't wait to collab with you
again. Get going, mister!

syncopate or swim
I love this, because it is very elegantly and tastefullly ALL of the
following: ethereal, disturbing, heart-wrenching, soft. The rhythmic
music is a great syncopated backdrop, very enjoyable. But I think your
singing soars over it, and the lyrics are probably the crowning
achievement of all of this. I enjoyed the interesting sparkly effects and
the overall texture of the music. Your singing is silky smooth. In awe...

Well, well, well, it's my favorite world-playing dragon.

You're very right that this song is heart-wrenching. The situation my friend is
in is very painful for her, but has moment of softness, you're right.

I don't think anyone has ever called me tasteful before, so I need to mark that
down in my pink, bedazzled notebook with my Hello Kitty pen.

Thank you so much for your generosity, Drak.

Steve, I'm so glad you were lost in the song. Brandon's music is very gentle
and trance-like, isn't it? It really drew me in from the very first time I heard it.
Thank you so much for taking the time to say some kind words.

P.S. You may be lost, but whatever you do avoid I-90 at rush hour! :-)

So glad you liked it sav and that you caught the bittersweetness in the song.


said 4430 days ago (November 1st, 2005)
nice but..
I really liked this in all respects except for that buzzy bell effect thing...
ANNYOYING AS HELL at the level it's at in the mix.
ledebutant said 4429 days ago (November 2nd, 2005)
nice but..
The buzzy bell thing, which I always thought of as the "sproinger-doinger"
was very hard to mix, indeed. It is part of the main percussion loop, so I
couldn't turn the levels down on the sproinger-doinger without losing the
levels on the percussion, so I tried to compromise. It used to be much louder.

Your comment is really valid, I'm just not sure how to get around it. Thank
you, Rob, for saying that you liked the song otherwise.
said 4420 days ago (November 10th, 2005)
nice but..
If you put an EQ on the percussion track prior to mixing it, you could selectively
"dim" the frequencies where that sound exists without doing too much damage
to the rest of the percussion track.

Sprinkle to taste.
ledebutant said 4420 days ago (November 11th, 2005)
nice but..
EXCELLENT tip, Rob! Thank you so much. I love it so much when people share
what they know. I've learned so much from you guys and have only recently
begun EQing my tracks, so don't always think in those terms, yet.

INTERPLANETARY
This was a great piece of interplanetary angst! Background music rules and Ledebutitties your voice gets better every song! Confidence would be the answer i would presume? I was standing on a pod in the bowl of Capn Crunch when you hurled down into my space. I engulfed the the projectile vomit and hurled it back like the friendly interplanetary space voyeur that I am! Spew dang doggie dill funkel rubba neck chick!

Confidence is the key, you're right, Biz. I have a lot of great support from you
guys, which makes me less afraid in front of the mic. Which means that my
throat doesn't close up.

There's still a big part of me that wonders what kind of crack you guys have
been smoking, but I do appreciate the kudos very much. :-)
chakeres said 4430 days ago (November 1st, 2005)
Very nice
Nice song ledeb and your voice is wonderful. I like how mellow the
song is then the drums kick in and it really moves. The whole songs
gives me the sense of floating and breathing. Also the spoken words
are quite effective. Nice work.-JAC

ledebutant said 4428 days ago (November 2nd, 2005)
Very nice
I love Brandon's track too, Chak. It's deceptively simple. I think my favorite bit
is the part right before the spoken word. It gets very pretty there.

Thanks for saying that the spoken word works. I thought I was very fancy for
figuring how to create a telephone effect with EQ. I'm easily pleased, I reckon.

perceptualvortex said 4430 days ago (November 1st, 2005)
What a grand combo
Everyone already said it all, dangit. You won't be surprised to hear that I love your singing in this song, Lisa. I just think you have a great voice, you write excellent lyrics. The backing by Brandon is really nice too; I like the way it gradually builds, and it's full of mystery in a way that complements the singing so well. Great job guys!

Dangit? Do you kiss your mother with that mouth, David? :-)

You know I love it that you're so kind about my singing. You're one of the
people that has really helped build my confidence and relax me in front of
that microphone. Maybe one day I'll get over my terror of live performance.

I thought it was Hasselhoff
I loved it in the Spongebob Movie when he and Patrick rode the URL Hasselhoff.

Nice song, great story, great setting for it.

ledebutant said 4429 days ago (November 2nd, 2005)
I thought it was Hasselhoff
It is Hasselhoff, but brandon:p had used an alternative spelling when he first
used it as a keyword on one of his own songs and I added it to one of mine
just to make him laugh, then I just had to add it to this one, too. The keyword
linkage only works if the spelling is identical.

I'm so glad you like this, Jim. I'm very happy to see a comment from you, yay!
Thank you.
Jim Bouchard said 4429 days ago (November 2nd, 2005)
I realized you were joking...but
So what do you think about The Spongebob Movie? It also has to do with things under the sea, like your song. An epic journey of redemption and transformation...I thought of Joseph Campbell and "The Hero of a Thousand Faces"
---and, yeah, I don't comment much these days...I do check things out but I am usually too busy (and/or in a bit of turmoil... or something similar to that at least... these days) to properly comment. I just had to say something due to the funny keyword inclusion, and that's how I thought Hasslehoff was related to this song.

ledebutant said 4428 days ago (November 2nd, 2005)
I realized you were joking...but
I highly enjoyed the Spongebob Movie, especially the sequence where he and
Patrick rode on Hasslehoff's back. I never saw the relationship. I think you're
right about The Hero of a Thousand Faces, I hadn't really noticed how this
song really fits into the structure he describes, but now I have, I think I'll do it
again! :-)

Sorry to hear you're in turmoil. I know a bit about that myself, how it clamps
down on rational thought.

Wow, this is fantastic, Ledeb. I always enjoy storytelling in songs, and

I think this is the best work you've done it really excels. I think though that you have even more vocal punch lurking. I can hear where your voice has power but coasts along when I really wanted it to just swell out. The song and theme and all has a quiet lost pain to it but it also has passion that I would love to hear expressed as well. All 9's but I think you can make it all 10's to me. You are writing for me yes? Just kidding. Anyway, excellent music and lyrics and vocals.

Ledeb
It's nice to finally see you finish this. I tried not to push you too much,
but like everyone says, your lyrics and voice seem to fit perfectly with
the music.And everyone reading this, Ledeb did 90% of the work. She is
even more gifted than she realizes, and with time she will see that. She
is a Diamond in the Rough. I hope i have the chance to do more work
with you, and intend to.

Thanks to everyone for the great comments. Music has become a great
new part of my life, as has being here at MacJams. It came at a time in
my life when I needed it most.
Cheers!

Hello, ledebutant...
Mermaid is a hit in my dictionary. I've posted it as one of my favorites, I
hope you know. By the way, are you thinking of any other songs? Do
you celebrate Halloween, I wanted to know?

Anyways, as I was saying, your song is groundbreaking. Take a look at
my vote. I wouldn't have done any of the bad ones. I hope you make a
sequel, called "Mermaid Returns 2". I bet it would be a hit. Anyways, I'm
gonna ask my dad to download it on a CD. Anyways, I gotta go
drowned myself in the music. Keep up the good work!

former than the latter. This was a nice ride!

Losing To Find
Intricate and delicately complex. Totally engrossing composition.

I, too, sank with the "Mermaid's Sad Songs" and was lifted to watch "the
Albatross fly", heading for that horizon, perhaps. A unique telling of a
regeneration and a Bold Drama from the author of, another favorite of
mine, "Sweet Baby"; the commonality being Strength of Vision.

Compelling and Unexpected Orchestration with TOP Production Values.

Commendations All Around.

Very smooth and evocative ... except for the sproings and whip crack.

little hot. A very nice structure and flow. The vocals are deftly
intertwined into the soundbed...no easy feat!

The Crew
What I'm wondering is if there was a secret ballot to determine the ECC's
opinion of me or if it comes from some sort of crewmember high up in the
ECC hierarchy.

Which then leads me to wonder about the inner workings of the ECC. What
goes on in the electoro sanctorum?

Hey

This is the first of your compositions I've heard, and it blew me away. It's snowing here, and this fits the mood perfectly. I love the way that your voice, so warm and human, sits over the electronic noise.

The lie, lie, lies sounds very traditional, which kind of opposes the use of modern percussive sounds.

Beautiful - like being sung to sleep by an electronic nanny.

Maybe
Maybe it's we go back and massage the track and clean up the percussions, etc. A lot of good comments here, and things we can easily fix.
Still a fantastic song coming back to listen.

Cheers!

Gorgeous!
I don't ordinarily think much of the lyrics I hear but this song is a stand-
out exception and your delivery is marvelous. Very beautiful indeed.

quirky-beautiful
Ha-hah ... the reek of the sea lingers a long time. I recommend using bleach to flush out those odors of the beach.

This is richly imagined - although I can't believe those mermaids wouldn't teach you how to swim as well as sing. However, since they did such a wonderful job with the singing, it's hard to quibble with them.

I'm not sure if this is beautiful because it's quirky, or quirkly because it's so oddly beautiful. Either way, it's quirky-beautiful: a gem from the ocean.

than most of the drivel out there polluting the airwaves....loves the way it
slowly builds and then kicks in to that tasty groove....you really need to
push yourself to some professional outlets....you could really do
something....love the spoken part....great tone to the recording of the
vocals and the overall production is great!!!! nice work....not bad at all for
rough takes!!!!....peace....Ian
