The Tempie Sound - LioLi9


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I've been wanting to write a party song for a while. At the same time, i've been wanting to write a self referential tune, you know, one of those 'i'm not promoting myself i'm being ironic but yet i'm promoting myself' type of tunes, you know, for the kids. Anyway here's both at once, and a contribution to LioLi to boot.

Lyrics
all kinds of cats in the house

this here's a party everybody get down

I've Said It Before
You're a cross between Prince and Larry the Cable Guy, but you have way more soul than the two combined!

This is just what the kids need!

Thanks man. Everybody's gettin' down!

ultimate
cross over tune. definitely hear the wildcherry/prince tone and it sounds fabulous with the Tempie lyrical vocal lines. The breaks are worthy of their own grammy. Way to splice those cuts Mr C

tempie said 3034 days ago (August 24th, 2009)
crossing over
the thing about crossing over is that you don't know if it's the act of leaving or arriving that bears poignancy. i've got absolutely no idea what the hell that means but i'll take that grammy. thanks for the listen dude, always glad when you like a tempie tune.

Prince and
Larry the cable guy. hahahaha. I'm actually seeing the move where he does the splits and slides back up. All joking aside, the music is killer. Funky as hell. I tried adding horns to a song recently. They never sound as good as when you put them in. That Brats doll is leggy and stacked. Just how I like my Brats dolls.

dude, you are like a sam's club 3 month size margarine tub of wit. no joke. that's hilarious. and that's how i like my Bratz dolls too.

Lennon714 said 3035 days ago (August 24th, 2009)
That's right!
It's "Bratz", not "Brats". It's weird because I realized it was wrong, but it was spelled right so I was confused. Fortunately, my daughter never went through a Bratz phase. Unfortunately, I'm going full blast in to my Bratz phase after looking at that song pic. Seriously, though. Great song. You really made something different with this tune. Tempie sound for sure.

Hey dude i love piano that teeters on the edge of falling apart but doesn't. like some of those old jerry lee solos. for whatever reason piano notes cause a heightened awareness of time.

OK!
Nice music makin'. It is what it is supposed to be. A song for a party. Dancin', movin',..
Nice production bits too. Love the space in the polyrhythmic "chopsticks" section. More of that opening guitar?!
Go boy go.

wow
late to the party but so glad i made it. this is reminiscent of Gang of Four to me. nice disco workout. that piano breakdown is genius too, makes the whole song. getting down in the temple of self referential abandon.

Groovy and catchy. The bass really keeps the party going and the pauses allow time to gather. The vocals are a real plus. Enjoyed

The Tempie dance
.. is surely much the same as the Trout dance?
Are you sure you're a Virginian redneck and not a very skinny black chap from Minneapolis?

Hey, stop it
I have that afro growing now.

Great use of the killer stop and go effect. check this, by the way, if you have three minutes to spare:

it's been a great hit in France (which I agree doesn't especially recommends it).

May gives you an idea for your next promotion scheme.

i love that whole start/stop thing. nothing better in a club when you're dancing to a huge beat and then it stops and you KNOW it's coming back but don't know when...i love that sense of waiting. cool tune - great video - love how the country people are checking him out with a combination of "hey cool something different and WTF????"

Shut up! Already!
Reminds me most of housequake by Prince. Don't ask me why, listen to it. Love the vocoder with the chorus.
You complained about too much bass in my song, so I have to beg you (with all objectivity, of course) to turn up the damn bass. Really get those booties moving.

That BraTz girl
could steal my heart. Think she may have been to Plasticville before, she seems really familiar, maybe she was that funky party girl at Plasticville High that wore leather Rag City Blues jeans. Wrote her a love letter. She didn't answer. After graduation I went into Secret Action Forces, and she went into show biz. Sigh.

LOVE the crazy rythym here, stopping and starting is utterly Princesesque. This needs a video in the worst way. Brilliant tasty demented chocolaty genius with nuts everywhere, bring on the leather pants, baby.

the Tempie sound
is a much better name than dance pattern #43 and the loopy loop has had some work done to it.... its all tucked, lifted and firmed (but I bet it denies the rumors just like all the stars do). You made this one a huge star...

VillageIdiot said 3017 days ago (September 10th, 2009)
Makes me very happy
All the textures in this... it's brilliant. The way that twangy loop goes against that hissy hi hat with the bouncy bass. An lesson in how to use a few totally different elements imaginatively. And the piano breaks against the kind of watch-like precision of everything else is great.

i got in the Crack Up mode looking at your doll and hearing the first measure of music. good funk, and the little quieter parts are quirkily perfect. sure, this had me leaning off my chair in anticipation of the music starting up after stopping. you made me look!
