A Man (w/dajama)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I owe a lot to to dajama (Dave M.) on this one. I wrote the tune, but Dave does most, if not all, of the instrumentation here. And I think he did a great job. It's really cool to hear what another can do with one of your songs.

And Dave, I really do appreciate what you did here. You made this song.

Hope you all enjoy.

Lyrics
A Man

A man with a broken plan
Who does not seem to understand
His thoughts are just conclusions
Of problems and solutions

A man don’t remember
Each time he surrenders
His life is an illusion
A cosmic revolution

Baby, don’t let me fall
Help me bring down this wall

A man with a vision
Of courage and decision
Of multiplied division
And why is he not living?

A man without his woman
Is one forgotten human
Who wishes them together
Flying like a feather

Baby, don’t let me fall
Help me bring down this wall

Dude!
Dude, it's up! Great to hear this up and out there. Great song, with a terrific hook, and I love those lyrics. This was great fun to work on. It's always cool to work with other people's material, but especially with the work of someone whose work you admire so much (i.e. you!). Of course, there's also the slightly intimidating aspect of worrying that you'll screw it up and turn a silk purse into a sow's ear! Glad you liked the stuff I did on this, but the song's the thing, and that's all you, my man! I've said it before (and I'll no doubt say it again a few times!) but you are a truly creative and prolific force, and I was honored to have a part in this one. Nice one. Peace.

Fantastic job
This song was in the trash. I only liked the vox actually. You polished my song beyond my expectations. You truly did an outstanding job here. And thanks for all the kind words in your comment box.

I hope to do something more with you in the future.

Thanks again,

Dave

David, great work on the music and mix. True somewhat early Pink Floyd in style. But, you two made it your own.

oh man
does that acoustic sound great...wish I could get mine to sound that good - jumped right out of the speaker - I could almost feel the strings. Cool! Really nice groove, and a great sing - along chorus. I could hear a barful of people singing along drunkenly/happily to this...

this is great I love the melody and very well put together. Nice lead. I would only suggest a tenor voice backing you up. It would bring the vocals up and out. But that's just me thinking out loud. Overall its awesome.

I listened to it and I thought the guitar work sounded familiar and then I read your intro. Dave M has a distinctive style and it is just perfect for your material. Great collaboration guys.
