Thursday Afternoon - (Early Demo)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Mark Lester said that Thursday must be the most boring day, since there were so few songs written about it.

Nothing like a challenge is there?

Needs a better singer, bass, guitar break, drums - the works :-)

Mail me if you have some ideas for it.

Lyrics
Whisper it slow, whisper it sweet
She passes a note,
"Where shall we meet?"

Something so right deserves it's own tune
It's The Ballad of Thursday Afternoon

I think of you often
You think of me not
Just have to be happy
With every little thing that I got

Something so beautiful deserves it's own tune
It's The Ballad of Thursday Afternoon

Monday ain't nothin' - might go drinking with friends
Tuesday watch TV - kinda depends
Wednesday is different - anticipation's a taste
Wake up on Friday with a smile on my face

My friends say I'm crazy
I say I don't care
There's something that draws me
I'll always be there
Whenever you call me
I'm drawn to that room

It's the Ballad of Thursday Afternoon

Great late afternoon song
Singing and songwriting are excellent. Has a wonderful simplicity to it and your voice is perfect for this kind song - laid-back, positive and chilled. The instruments sound quite thin, which could just a be either a recording or mastering issue - both fairly easy to fix I suppose, but all the important elements for a good song are definitely there. And I agree, Thursday is totally underrated. Thanks for taking care of that.

Very kind.......
Thanks for the compliments.

Everything is placeholder there really - I just wanted to get it down, as the only other version I have of it was recorded on my iPhone. As I had 'flu at the time, the vocal is actually better - I'm really thinking that it should be a lot dirtier and bluesier than it is right now.

But I do like the way the words and the tune came out.

Cheers for commenting!

Thursday
This totally works on its own terms. Not blues, but a nicely written and sung tune. You sound like yourself...which is the whole point, isn't it? Well done.

Usually.........
Usually I have always like the fact that my/our stuff sounds distinctive - but on this occasion, there's a specific sound in my head I want to achieve and I just haven't got the voice to do that.

Anyhow - it's just a sketch currently - so I'm really glad you got something from it.

Idea
Doesn't need a better singer...good voice especially for the song. I like it.
I think a piano would sound great in this song.
I like the lyrics but suggest you shorten it to "Thursday Afernoon" (eliminate "It's The Ballad of")...but that's just my opinion. :o)

Hi Connie.....
Thanks for the kind comment - I'm thinking a Rhodes kind of sounds for the keyboards, or maybe a Honky-tonk kind of sound. Something smokey anyway.

I have a version on this on my iPhone I did when I was ill with 'flu a few weeks back. That voice would have done fine :-)

Unpluged
Well written song. Love the lyrics and guitar. The "plugged" version could include bass, drums, and a whoopass guitar solo. It's a hit for sure.

Plugged version......
Yup - I'm hoping to persuade someone with a bluesier voice to do it live later in the year with a band. I'll try and record it when if I pull it off. Cheers - JC

Great Vocal
It's got a sort of fragile feel to it that really suits the mood of the song. Well the Moody Blues did Tuesday Afternoon so why not do Thursdays i say. Really like this well done.

Thanks Stan - it's only WIP, but that sort of encouragement should ensure I produce a better version at some point. Cheers - JC
