Description
you're about to enter the Hamlet mchines dud alert zone. I rather liked the lyrics on that one, tried four our five different musics on it without ever making it right. For somes reasons I've always had to struggle with the singing.

Lyrics
My hands like wild horses
Jumping in slow-motion
Under your blue jumper
Grace! what an emotion
Nothing could be better
And I couldn’t feel worse

I heard the howling in the hall
Schoolgirls belong to all

First you had said hello
Slipped your small hand in mine
Then gave me everything
Your open eyes smiling
But then you changed your mind
And you wanted to go

I saw the writing on the wall
Schoolgirls are pure..evil

All your best friends that passed
With lies breezing like air
‘round their tied chestnut hair
Shadows on their dresses
And the thunder beneath
Well…they all have a past

Think it's good
There's something special about this one. Some interesting sounds and the song has an overall good feel.
The vocals at the start were a little difficult to hear/understand. But that's only nit-picking.

thanks
It's nice to have feedback on this song which leaves me a bit puzzled. I like the idea that there is something special instead of something wrong.

Dudless
CJ -

I agree these lyrics are rather wonderful. You have such an enviable style when writing about relationships. Somehow, I can't help feel sorry for the poor guy, even though he's got one thing on his dirty mind. It's still poetic.

The music sounds perfectly connected to the lyrics/vocals. I wonder what the struggle was, because I don't see a mis-fit (you misfit). I particularly like your brief intro. A very good idea. I think this has placed second on my list of favorite second bests.

Maybe you were thinking too hard about this, like you've advised me on a recent song. It just sounds like another good downloaded HM song to me. Keep 'em coming!

dirty mind
Maybe I got tired of trying different things with this song, of which there are three or four completely different versions. But as far as songwriting goes,a six-line verse is harder to manage than a six-pack.

The theme is a bit the same as "bicycle face", "little black riding hood" or "vintage lover" and I'm afraid there is more to come. It's always fun to find new twists to a cliché.

excellent
This is the first song of yours I have heard. I really like it, especially the delicate little refrain going on behind the mad jangly guitars. Dud? Only in the sense of Moore...

but
were the vocals perfect for the music ? I never felt at ease with this one. Maybe because it's less straighforward than our usual material. I'm glad you liked it.
