Lyrics
I have a regular job, a normal job, a boring job
like everyone else on this little hot blue marble
I want something better
isn't that the way?
I'm told to want something better, so I want it
a glamorous occupation is what I deserve

my glamorous occupation

my glamorous occupation waits for me...

I want to do the fantastic, completely bombastic, without any glasses
I want to have the shiny things that blind my eyes
I want something perfect
doesn’t that sound good
I’m told to want perfect things, so I want them
a glamorous occupation is what I deserve

my glamorous occupation
my glamorous occupation (is looking for me...)

I toil away
these hours I spend
I’m always so sleepy
when the day comes to an end
I wish I had, the energy to follow my dreams
but I’d rather have them, handed to me
for free
then everyone will see
my glamorous occupation becomes me

a pilot, poet, playwright, acrobat, painter or diva
lion tamer, king of the world, model or zeppelin captain
international spy, chocolate tasting tester,
super hero, film star, evil genius, trust fund baby

I toil away
these hours I spend
I’m always so sleepy
when the day comes to an end
I wish I had, the energy to follow my dreams
but I’d rather have them, handed to me
for free
then everyone will see
my glamorous occupation becomes me
my glamorous occupation looks for me
(my glamorous occupation becomes me)
(my glamorous occupation waits for me)
(my glamorous occupation becomes me)
(my glamorous occupation looks for me)
everyone thinks I’m a star
but I just like the shiny things....

fun stuff...
Great job melting i.spikey wacky lyrics into EZamor's wacky soundbed... fits together like a pomegranate in a latex glove (uh, that's a GOOD thing!) EZ, like your music here (with the little embellishments/fx), and Steve's unusual lyrics and stunning singing/harmonizing really make this a deliciously quirky hit! Did you have to tweak/extend the music for the singing? Sounds like they were made for each other, great collab!
ttfn,
Drakonis

This is a great track
When Steve lends his spectacular vocals and quirky, excellent lyrics to a very well done instrumental track, magic always appears. An absolutely first rate, pro level job of singing.

Great job with the synths, too. Excellent arrangement, world class vocals, engaging lyrics... I'd say you have something special here...

Another killer MacJams collab. The way it ought to be.

Fabulous
This is without doubt one of the best tracks I have heard on MJ (or anywhere come to think of it). I can think of no criticism whatsoever.
Pro-level everything. Downloaded of course. Thanks.
Cheers

nice
This is pretty good singing mr. spike. The beat is very poppish (is that a word?). I think this goes well with the genre. I can see a guy moping in a grocery store daydreaming about the glamorous life.

Nice jam all together.

Nice
I liked this one .. really very good job ..
and always i'm enjoying to hear I. Spike's vocal ..
But "why you put a lot of effects into the vocal ?!"
It would be great if the vocal was natural ..
But overall .. very good piece ..
Wish to hear more of these great & strange tones ..

Great combo
This is quite a wonderful combination of vocals and electronic background. There must be some minimal processing on the vocals, and the result makes it blend in very well. My compliments.

Was the vocal part written over a finished electronic track? It is very imaginatively done. The melody is in no way implied by the electronics but sounds quite natural over it.

A glamorous tune!
I don't normally listen to electropop. But this tempted me for some reason and I'm very glad I surrendered and gave it a shot. This is excellent in every way. The sound-bed is really cool. Interesting array of electro-sounds and a nice driving beat to carry everything forward. The vocals and harmonies are simply superb. BRAVO!

Be well!

oh man
so glad i stumbled onto this oldie. You're right EZ, very cool lyrics and Steve's performance is great. But really, this one is all about the soundbed for me. I love the effects, love the synths - an almost industrial feel to this one. Just really cool stuff going on underneath those great vocals.
