Description
This was a beatles rip-off that I just wrote, and asked Vic to lay down some guitars for. He amazingly turned this around in a couple of hours. Now it sounds like the Flaming Lips covering a Traveling Wilbury's song. Thanks Vic. I know I just posted another song, but the wife is out of town, so I'm taking the time to do some recording. I told Vic I was going to re-record the bass and vocals, but they sounded "good enough."

Fantastic!
Fantastic song! I dont think it sounds that much as a beatles ripoff, it sounds to me like a little genuien indie pop tune. I am impressed by the mixing done on this, the sound is very dynamic. And that is great!Thank you!

A lost jewel
from the fab faux - and a little flying burrito brothers too. I love the wheezy quality of the mix and the layering of the vocals. Of course Vics guitar was the magic touch here - but all the other instrumentation is so perfect. This has a great live in the studio feel. Excellent.

the
Fab Faux; excellent. I'll work on a Sonic Spoof song next. Vic totally rocked on this, exactly what I was picturing. PLus there is the added bonus of a couple drum fills (never used them before). THanks for stopping by, gotta fly and get me a burrito now.

confetti. lots of confetti
but i clogged up the vacuum trying to clean it up. And do I get to keep the pink full sized bunny suit?

Well you know have much i liked this from the start from your demo. You did a really good job on the mixing. Vocals up front and righteous.

lt was fun adding to this.

I agree I disagree
thats a cool name for this collab, youtoo rock, I always liked ur vocal style and ur musical talent to boot.very good production, the pic says it all and ripping off other artists is fine and dandy, just don't, try and sound like them, I don't quite remember exactly what Boy George said, but roughly it was " you don't borrow, you rip off"...any hoot nice jam boys....BlueSky

anyone
who quotes Boy George is a friend of mine, the man has soul to spare. Gotta love a cross dressing Motown rip. Thanks for stopping by, and for all the kind words.

Beatles?
Man, this doesnt sound like the fab 4 to me, just fab. Your voice is gettin' better and better Mike (bit like the guy outta Travis on this one), and this is a pop gem - 'good enough' - sure is. I dunno how you could improve the mix on this - its a polished jewel.

If ..
.. it started out sounding like a Beatles song, letting Vic loose on the guitars was always going to make it more so. For "off the cuff" lyrics, these work really well, and the song sounds great. More Julian Lennon for mine than the Beatles - there's something very "live" about this.
Like it a lot.

thanks for listening
it sounded like obladi-oblada when i started, as it was mostly piano driven. THen Vic went crazy on it, he's a genius pretty much. I'm not familiar with Julian at all (I do remember the "pebble" song from back in the day), although I love Sean Lennon's stuff. Thanks for stopping by, and glad you like the song.

Im glad
You didn't say you came up with this in one hour, that would have pissed me off. This is friggin' brilliant! The composition, the arraingment, melody all good. Perfect bridge. The song took me out of my technical critic mind state and put me in a" just enjoy it" one. Everything here sounds good enough to me, and then some. Latter

Very nice
Fabbish, but not ripoffish at all. Love the guitar work on here, and I also like the piano/ keyboards, and the vocal is terrific. Your voice has a most excellent feeling to it that's hard to describe. It shines through on pretty much everything you do, and here again it's a winner. Very cool. Nice collab, and nice work all round. Peace.

Shameless rip-offs are best...
When kept shameless... lol...

Nice nice singing on this.

I want to go down the list of all the things that I like about this, but I wouldn't go up to Ringo and tell him how well he slammed the drums... Well...maybe that was a bad example because he wasn't that good of a drummer.

See, you're ahead of em, just too late... Actually you guys are right on time...

Everything is good about this. A very nice production!

Great playing Vic! I have to at least say that.

Oh what the hell... I'm always hyper focus on the drums and the percussive part of things and I just have to say, you did an EXCELLENT w/ them. Good supporting bass too - so I guess that makes your rhythm section pretty dead on.

Lots of nice little percussive touches, including the x-phone. Very nice!

Are you playing the piano??? impressive...

There... I went and did what I knew would make me feel silly... Could'nt help myself, though...

I really enjoyed this! Thanks, guys! Dion

Okay...
I didn't get my copy last night and also, I wanted to listen on a nice system - Man do I feel stupid - This really a great piece. A full on production!

You get a big assed, WOW, from me. Very nice work. Thanks again.

I just love music!

Hey man, really nice tuneage! Great job singing this. Sound like John Lennon in places. Lovely melody and Beatle-esque change-ups. And good choice drafting Vic! Kudos!

Be well!

great
to see collaborate two of the greatest guards of the 60s temple at macjams. It's exquisite as usual, I really like this glockenspiel, like little stars in the rich texture of the song (an everefficient spectorian trick).

I had to come over and check this out.
I dig.
More like the early Kinks. I'm not sure why I say that, I think its the vocals and the over all sound.
Nice work.
Vic fits perfect in here.
nice work
