Lyrics
i'm coming back to NYC from LA
They'll throw a 21 gun parade.
My little girl, my habit locked me up in a cage
But I'm crawling back here to tell you...

Your daddy sicc'd his lawyer on my skinny bones
But i just wont accept his calls
Im coming back with NYC in my blood
chop me up...

Oh the sun is shining
and this fool is blinded (i'll watch your cells dividing)
Be my little razorblade

I'm coming back to New York City from LA
They'll throw a 21 gun paarde
I'm coming back with NYC in my blood
Chop me up ...
A highschool dream, you taught me how to play that scene
Kiss me like amphetamine
I went away, went off the track and shrunk my veins
Some melancholy getaway

What?
No Bud? How can this be?

Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh. Proper comment to follow. I'm off to kiss some amphetamine.
ledebutant said 3334 days ago (May 10th, 2008)
Yep
Fantastic guys, but really how could it be otherwise with this band? This one is the ultimate entry to this thing for me, not only because you captured the sound so well, but the spirit of the whole challenge, too.

I love this place, I love you guys and if I weren't already married, I'd marry the bass on this song.
ledebutant said 3334 days ago (May 10th, 2008)
P.S.
I also love the gang of Steves singing back up. You'll have to teach me how to do that someday.

Don't Ask Bob
Grrrrrrrr!

(I'm not the happiest kid in Valrico when I think about it the trouble I went through to get this song posted with a new band name.)

Great post Steve. You have a super tight band and man, your vocals sound great and everything else sounds pro. It must be awesome to work with these chaps!

Supergroups
We've worked with people like this and we've never been able to agree on anything, except a band name.

We tried to post a song but for some bizarre reason it was never approved. I wonder if it was our band name?

Excellent song guys. You are a supergroup if I've ever seen one.

Thanks!

big time producer .. LOL .. pfft .. your such a weeze ..
glad you asked me Steve to help out tweak this already fab, catchy, well constructed tune (even if I couldn't figure (skate?) out who was doing what), otherwise I wouldn't have had time to get involved at all in the wonder that is CBGB.

I didn't want to over 'produce' it .. (hard to achieve just post processing with Ozone anyways) .. and I liked it still having some 'demo'ish qualities... that was the idea after all.

Off to smoke a big fat cigar ..run off with the money to warmer climes ..anyone want a deal with EMI?? hehehe (in keeping with character) ;o)

Pleasure to have so many talented MJ stars in the one room. I think Bowie needs this one to complete his next album.

Maybe it's just me...
...but I don't remember the 80's sounding this GOOD! Ha ha...

You guys definitely should stay in business for awhile! This is one of the finest collabs I've heard at MJ.

BIG KUDOS TO THE WHOLE STINKIN LOT O' YA!

Be well friends!

So Brian Eno...

Or...or...or maybe something else happened...

Fun Song to work out with the boys!

The first thing that hit me when I heard the vocals in the chorus was Axl Rose!

Sounds real good Steve you hit the bulleye

The rest of the band rocks also :D
its Bobs bass that kick started this
and Jim layered some nice sound paint on it.

Yeah, I'm proud to be a part of this number!

Great hook! Hi Steve - been away for a while so apologies for the late comment. Missed the whole CBGB thing, which sounded fun. This is so authentic I'm sure I bought it back in 1981!

It is a great hook though. Gonna be singing this doing the hoovering!
