Lyrics

Sunset Girl

Wake up now
She looks herself in the mirror

Get up now
It’s true the lines are getting clearer

Make up on
You think you’re clever; you’re fooling no one

Put it on now
Something sexy for every one

She looks out the window
To the streets and the still of the night
Goes back to the bathroom
Under sheets and she tries, and she tries, and she tries
To cry

Arriving
Everyone there knows what you’ve done

Go home now
The night’s not over, it’s time for fun

Unlock it
You do it again like you did before

Go to sleep now
Your one night friend is out the door

She looks out the window
To the streets and the still of the night
Goes back to the bathroom
Under sheets and she tries, and she tries
To cry

Sunset girl

Sunset girl

Don’t cry…

The truth of the matter is
that John Lennon's vocals sound very Dave-esque! Or is it Lava-esque? Or perhaps Lamp-esque?

Would you have preferred Adrian Belew-esque?

Anyway, I've always dug your singing...

Geat vibe to this tune
I like the echo on your vox and the backing vox too. Loose and easy going production - with a touch of The Kinks. Very nice.

It's Already Been Said
But I dig the 70's era Lennon vocal treatment. There's also a Stones at their most pop (Ruby Tuesday) to this. Very cool retro pop.

Quick slap
Vic Holman did a tune with me and he used a quick slap effect on my vox, and I thought, "Ah that's it!."

Thanks Andrew

nice
hey great song! slap echo vocals are cool.
love the acoustic guitar and the swelling string sounds.
How'd you pull those off by the way? I find those synthesizer-type sounds hardest to do, always sounds cheezy when I try it. It sounds fantastic here.

slap echo
Yeah, it works on my vox.

regarding the swelling sound, I don't know, i put some compression on it and some tiny effects through GB and put it on the far sides, not in the middle. But, I'm no tech guy. I just do what sounds good.
thanks

cool lyrics dave
Your facebook page is right - I did enjoy this one! Love the lyrics. there's an easy simplicity to this tune that makes it very listenable and catchy. Love that ending. I'm glad you kept this one pretty basic - makes it more about the story than anything else. Great tune.

I don't think many people give a rat's ass about my FB song postings, but glad at least one person saw it.

Really glad you liked the lyrics. Most of my songs (at least the lyrics) were written 5-10 years ago, including this one. My frame of mind could have been different then.

Thanks Shay

Nice on, Dave
The piano makes this song shine. Digging the 60's heavy lyrics with a poppy soundbed thing.

Thanks Eric
I never will know what 60's, 70's, 80's or 90's music is. But, I do know a lot of my favorites came out of the 60's scene.

On the way to your song...

Eric Van Armbruster ?
Dude, this is sweet, with shades of MJs very own Lennon(714). Great tune, great piano driving it along and great words. Love the sighing backing vox and the 'verb all over the vox. Terrific.

Sunset Girl
As noted above, this is another one of your tunes with a really hooky chorus--in fact, it got stuck in my head earlier today. I like how the synth pad works together with the vocal to create just enough tension to maintain propulsion in this relaxed groove. Another really nice tune--somehow it slipped by me before...
