When You Get Carried Away (Second Chance Analogapalooza)

Description
This was recorded on my 4 track way back when saying "James Van Der Beek" made at least some sense. Though these recordings never turned out sonically refined, they've always been my some of my favorites. Stick around through the end and experience awesomely awful, face melting guitar solo. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Lyrics
The way she smiles when she tells a stupid joke
That she heard from the jockey on light rock radio
Her eyebrows rise and her eyes begin to shine
She's got the power to be ruthless but she's never short of kind

She's watered down but patient and hey, she's right on target
She knows she's priced well in a high demand market
Full count, two out, three men on base
Power hitter swinging in the playoff race

Ooh baby, you're driving me crazy
You carry me away when you get carried away

She's not dismayed by the burdens of finance
Keeping from the lowlifes and aiming for the highlands
She keeps you moving and never seems to let you down
Stifled by her parents, she's looking to get out of town

Ooh baby, you're driving me crazy
You carry me away when you get carried away

Ooh baby don't let this mother down

Ooh baby, you're driving me crazy
You carry me away when you get carried away

mics
To be honest, I think I put the vocal mic through my guitar processor to make it sound bad. I wasn't aiming for a particular "sound". I just wanted to make it sound different than what I was doing at the time. I may redo this one in a more serious tone and I'll try to make it sound better. Thanks for listening!

Possibly
the best chorus I've heard in a very long time. What a great song. I love the Analogapalooza stuff. Great synths. The end is ridiculous and wonderful.

I think
I should put out an album called "ridiculous and wonderful". Sad part is that when I actually try to play leads, they don't sound much better than what's at the end of this song anyway.

glad you stuck around, too. Thanks for the listen. I'm also glad Rufus came back from the future to show Bill and Ted how to melt faces with the princess babes.

thanks ridd
I'm sure you'd do a great job with it. I may redo it, but with my current situation I don't know when I'm going to be able to work on anything. Geez, I need to get you Square Pegs still... yikes. I'm way behind.

Driving Me Crazy
Cool stuff. Love the strumming guitar and the whacked out leads. I like the helium harmonies and the cadence of the lyrics.

Like...
...unwrapping a Negativeland album, passing it through a Beck filter, getting it produced by the Butthole Surfers and seeing what happens. Great two chord verse strum - sounds like genuine garage band music - when that meant making music in a garage!

Neat -

Thanks, Phil!
I'm a big fan of just throwing crap together. I'm trying to improve on production skills but in my heart of hearts I'm just a scrub throwing crap together. It's my niche... :)

Really damn coooool!
Hey man, I am not much of a musician myself (i use all of the loops and stuff in GB) but believe me when I tell you, I KNOW GOOD MUSIC WHEN I HEAR IT and this gig really rolls, rocks, bounces, laughs, and kicks some ass compared to 99% of the stuff you hear on this site.

I would love a clean recording just the way it is. Perhaps with the vocals (at some point, perhaps not the whole thing) cleaned up and sharp.

I love the acoustic surfer/beach/california sounding guitar riffs too.

I am pretty good at folksy and more spritual stuff with lots of harmony. If could play guitar like you I'd think I'd be a millionaire... LOL

Keep up the good work my friend.

I'd love to
agree with your assessment, but I fear your sampling of this site may not be broad enough yet to solidify such an appraisal. If you haven't already, I highly recommend Michael2, rsorensen, lavalamp, five_extra_arms, buckhorn, dolby, mckenzie, and about two dozen other favorites that I'm letting slip my mind because it's late.

I'm glad you like it. I'll have to swing by and hear what you're putting up. I admire those that work exclusively with loops and samples so I'm looking forward to hearing your stuff.

I may redo this song when I get some time. Right now is kind of bad. Two jobs, senior year in college and family get first dibs (not in that order, of course). Thanks for stopping by!

Avant-garde
Love demos that are found under the bed years later. Something sounds like a pneumatic drill.

Strange things afoot at the Circle K...

Love it!

Terrific
This is a great song. The lo-fi recording gives it a certain extra hit of coolness, I think, but this song would sound good however you did it! Great vocal. Love the guitar freakout at the end! Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

thanks
I should do more guitar freakouts. When I jam with someone that's how my real solos end up sounding so apparently I'm an awful guitar player or a groundbreaker. Probably not the former.

James
Van Der Beek. He was on Dawson's Creek. I had a girlfriend that was RELIGIOUS about that show. Lo-Fi seems to be my only Fi :)
