Description
Since Halloween is nearly upon us I thought I'd revisit one of my old songs for a little bit of a redo and post it as a Halloween trick, or treat. I guess whether it's a trick or a treat would depend on whether or not you like the new version.

Hope you enjoy the new version of "The Werewolf Baby", and happy Halloween.

Ed

p.s. Here's the original version if anyone wants to make a comparison

The Werewolf

Verse 1
There's a werewolf baby, knockin' on your door
He looks like a man be, but he's evil to the core
He's got a hungry look, and his eyes are fixed on you
He's a werewolf baby better watch out what you do

Chorus
A creature of habit, sleeps until noon
But when he's on the prowl he likes to howl at the moon
A werewolf baby, and he's commin' after you

Break

Verse 2
He's a sly one baby, He's good at slippin' around
He's tried every woman, in this whole damn town
He's got a hot-rod Ford, and A thousand dollar suit
He's a hungry little devil, and he's waitin' to feed on you

Chorus
A creature of habit, sleeps until noon
But when he's on the prowl he likes to howl at the moon
A werewolf baby, and he's commin' after you

Tag lines:
I'm the werewolf baby, and I'm commin' after you
I want your body, baby , I'm commin' after you
Need your lovin', baby, I'm commin' after you
I'm the werewolf ----- Yeah oweoooooooooooo

Tis the season Bill
I always figured this one to be a real rocker, but the first version was pretty tame. I decided that for Halloween this year, I'd try to fix that situation, and I think I've got it cooking on all burners now.

Thanks for stopping in to listen, and for the great comments my friend, it really is appreciated.

Be well and be cool Bill,

Thanks Miche
Well my friend, let's put it this way. Doing this in the studio i one thing, but if I had to do it on stage, that's not going to happen any more.

But I still have the music in me and I really like bringing these old songs of my into the 21st century, even if it seems like they were written in the 19th, or is that 18th century. I'm getting so old I can't remember anymore.

It's like "Been there, done that, can't remember, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, thanks again for listening and for the kind words Miche, really glad you liked the song. I do appreciate you taking time to lend encouragement through your comments.

Be well and be cool my friend,

Thanks cast of thousands
And I even combed my hair. Well, what hair I have left anyway.

Thanks Cast, I appreciate the listen and the very cool comments. Just trying to dress the old scarecrow up in a new suit so he'll be ready for his big date with the corpse bride on Halloween this year.

Glad you liked the new treatment on this old song of mine my friend. Thanks again for the kind words.

Be well and be cool,

Thanks Joe
Be afraid, very afraid. Are ya scared yet ? How about now ? Oh well, so much for my spooky Halloween tricks.

Thanks for the kind words my friend, and for listening, it is really appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the remake on this old song. I wanted to build a fire under it, but the Fire Marshal wouldn't give me a permit so I had to do it on the sly.

Be well and be cool Joe,

Oh, about that listening. I wouldn't listen to this on Halloween night, or any other night where there's a full moon.

Thanks Steve
Really glad you stopped in to listen my friend and enjoyed the song. Thanks again for the encouragement and kind words, they mean a lot to me.

If you get the urge to play this one on Halloween, by all means do. I doubt it will scare anyone, but it might cause them to laugh a bit. Then the party will turn into a contest to see who's the biggest Werewolf there. It'll be like telling fishing stories, ya know. Who caught the biggest fish and all those other whoppers.

Have fun, happy Halloween and be cool man.

Thanks Feter
Yeah, I'm reaching back into my past now and trying to bring these tired old songs into the 21st century. On some it works well, on others it doesn't work at all. This one, I think I heated it up about as far as I can without a total remake. But it's working for me so I guess that's what counts

Thanks again for listening and for the kind words Feter, it is very much appreciated.

All of them
Hi Dick,

Glad you enjoyed the song and especially the guitar parts.
Most of the new guitar parts added on top of the original tracks are loops. There's a few that are actually mine, but only a few.

The original track is hiding underneath all the additions, but you can hear it poking through every now and again. Of course the vocal is on the original tracks so you hear it all the time.

It was hard finding the right balance between getting enough volume on the vocal without bringing it up so much that the old tracks came through too much with it.

Anyway, glad you enjoyed the updated version, and I appreciate you listening and commenting on it my friend.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Thanks for dropping in for a listen and sending along the "I'm a" comment my friend, it gave me a real good laugh.

Glad you stopped in for a listen and liked the song. It's an old one that I reworked to build a fire under it, and I think it's were it needs to be now. The earlier version was too lame and tame, this one is neither.

Thanks,again for listening and the kind words my friend.

Thank you Bob
What can I say, it's an old song I doctored up in Logic with some new additions. Some mine, and some loops, but the net effect is the song sounds much better than it did before, and for that I'm grateful.

Glad you stopped in to have a listen my friend and I do appreciate the kind words. I'm also glad you enjoyed this new version, and want to thank you again for listening.

Be well and be cool Bob,

Better be careful there girl, he's a pretty smooth operator, don't ya know. Of course, on the other hand, maybe he's the one who needs to be careful with you "slinkin" out there with who knows what on your mind once you trap him.. lol

Thanks for the listen and the kind words Char. Glad you enjoyed the song.

Thanks Kevin
Yeah, about that bass. I couldn't think of any better way to push the song into overdrive than that straight up hard hitting bass line. It gives the break a whole new dimension.

Thanks for listening my friend, and the great comments. Glad you enjoyed the new version.

What can I say Mr. Sloparts
You have a way with words and know just how to turn a girls head. Especially when you write a song about one of my all time heros.

You little devil you,

Wow Ed, this really rocks. Superb writing and production on this number my friend. Thanks for making it available for download.

Well thank you for that Doug
Glad you liked it well enough to want to download it, that's always a good sign. ;-)

This version was a major redo of the song I had done back in 1992, and is a lot better and different then the earlier version. Mostly because I've got even better equipment now, but also because of Logic, and what it is capable of.

Thanks again for the kind words Doug, they are appreciated.

it is the good kind of rock and roll
with the evil lyrics. it is a cautionary tale, with a smile. however, the smile has fangs. it is very well written and performed. my daughter likes werewolf music, so i shall download and play it. it will be an amulet to protect her from the real werewolf. 0x0

Thanks John
I wrote and first recorded this in 1992, but it didn't sound very much like this version. It was very tame back then.
This time I wanted Wolfie to stretch out his fangs and claws and take a big bite out of Halloween in 2009. I think maybe he got there, at least I hope so anyway.

Thanks again for listening John and the kind words on it, it is very much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the song, John, it was a lot of fun redoing it.
