Description
Firstly, this is NOT about my wife.

I did a session a couple of weeks ago and recorded this old song I had in my songbook and recorded it on my Zoom H2, just to get it down as a demo. I thought it sounded good, so I exported it to GB and added another vocal and bass to make it a little more full sounding.

I still have about 7 more songs from the session I did a few weeks ago, including a Mowguy3 cover (Stay tuned for that one). I still have about 30 more song projects I want to work on. Good thing I wrote down just about every song I wrote from 26 years old and on. I'd love to collab on a few. So don't be surprised if you get a call from me.

I'm not anti-woman in any way. This was written for a friend, in a way, who was going through some messy divorce. His ex-wife was not the nicest person in the world. I ended up writing this song as a character, not as a reflection of my own feelings toward woman, whom I love.

Hope you enjoy

BTW, the painting is Pandora 1896 by John William Waterhouse. According to Greek mythology, she was the first woman.

Lyrics
A Woman Like You

I don’t know why I chose a woman like you
A Woman Like You

You’re jealous, you’re spiteful, you don’t understand
A Woman Like You

Well, I think you are two-faced
I think you have no place
Standing right beside me
Right Beside Me

You need me, you want me, but you don’t respect me
A Woman Like You

You beat me, you hate me; you don’t talk to me
A Woman Like You

Well, I think you are two-faced
I think you have no place
Standing right beside me
Right beside me

You act like a baby when you want me to do
A Woman Like You

You act like a lady when you want me to play
A Woman Like You

You act like a mother when you want me to stay
A Woman Like You

Well, I think you are two-faced
I think you have no place
Standing right beside me
Right beside me

A Woman Like You
I can certanly relate to the lyrics because of a similar past relationship of mine. With that said, this is right to the point,no question left as to the meaning. Strong words and phrases used as well.
This must be a very good friend for you to want to write a song this powerfull. I personaly like it and think you did a great job. Thanks!

Dreams
I can't wait to post "Dreams", but I want it to sound better. After my trip, I'm going to have a bit more time to work on tunes.

Oh yeah, glad you liked this tune. Thanks

Good demo, I often wonder how people with your talent just kinda let songs out, they can just float 5 or 6 songs at a time like breathing.
Thanks for sharing your tunes with us. No chance of learning that skill. But I can enjoy it here...

No
worries, man. I think we all know you're a stand-up guy. Plus, I get where you're going with the message. I didn't get a "this goes for ALL women" feeling. That acoustic sounds great. I just got done listening to "Feeling Kinda Dizzy" again. Great tune. This is too. Has a Working Class Hero feeling to it. Lennon-esque lyrics, too. Great job!

Kinda Dizzy
I know why you like that tune. It's a Weezer rip. lol

I was wondering when someone would mention Working Class Hero- I do love that song. It was not my intent to rip off that tune like I did with Weezer's. Haha

Thanks Eric

Not a rip
See my comments in the forum :). These are compliments, brother! Also, I don't see how Feeling Kinda Dizzy is a Weezer rip at all. It's just a bad ass rock song. Anyway, you're plenty original. Don't stress it. I saw you had a new one posted and I jumped right on it. Glad I did.

Thank you Jack
Lennon was my working class hero. His influence comes out in my sub-conscience sometimes. I have no control.

Thanks

campfire
i like vic's comment about the "campfire" feel of this, i get that too, it's very cool. maybe a campfire at one of Robert Bly's "wildmen" retreats ha. Nothing wrong with an honest vent dude. irony is that the worst women are often the most difficult to get around to leaving. great sound from the acoustic and really like the "ahh" backups toward the end.

I love JWW's art. This moment, just before Pandora opens the box, is a great choice. Your "not about my wife" disclaimer made me smile. The song had a chant-like repetitive, old-school folk feel, which works; altho my ears wanted a bridge, and when the "ah" break came in (kind of an end coda), it was a nice relief. I liked how you kept it all simple, streamlined, solo.

lavalamp said 2988 days ago (July 16th, 2009)
Tobin, nice seeing you
Has anybody seen the bridge? I can agree with that, but I decided to keep it as a sort of ranting piece. Like the writer didn't write this to entertain, rather to get some stuff off his chest.

I'm glad you liked what I did. Thanks Tobin.

This is a great song Dave and could definitely go a lot bigger. Good to hear an opposite view (usually women slagging men off).
Cheers

dude this is real stuff. one of your simplest songs yet in my opinion one of your best. you really mean what you're singing here and it shows. the guitar playing is aggressive and tight. really suits the song. great job.

Hey thanks Ridd
I thought this one was one of my better, honest tunes. I don't know why it didn't get so much "play". But, oh well.

Thanks friend
