Lyrics
Imagination of a Day Dreamer

do I think money grew on trees
by pulling the leaves
I tried anyway

just my imagination
it's running away

I could paint the world
a deeper shade of blue
I would lasso the moon
to get a better view
I could walk this earth
and wondering what to do

I traveled as Don Quixote
and chasing windmills
I got turned around

just my imagination
it's running away

I could cage the world
and mail it postage due
I could be the letter
delivering all the news
I could write forever
but words are overused

it's just my imagination

I would like to change the seasons
until I changed my mind
I'll give it some time

just my imagination
it's running away

I would paint the world
a deeper shade of blue
I would lasso the moon
to get a better view
I would walk this earth

I have to agree w/u 200%, money sure not grew on trees.
But I wich I had some pants who give me some money every time I put my hand in my pocket.
As always I love your music, pal… Cheers

Cool colors
The pieces of art you use along with your songs are very cool Vic.

It's a cool rock song. I wonder if you use some special Vic trick to get that cool sound on your vox... Do you by any chance double your vox track - like singing the song twice and using both tracks unison? I think Gilbert O' Sullivan used to do that, and it gives a special fx sound to the vox. There's a similar cool sound in your tracks, and I can't quite figure out what it is :)

Thanks Thor
the art here is a montage of photos created in photoshop. there will be more things added to it when i get some time to work on it.

no big effect for vocals. just the usual compressors, eq and some reverb. i do like you mentioned, i double track most vocals and usually add a third on choruses. i pretty much record a song the old school way, everything is played out.

totally emotional and i love it.i liked not being able to quite tell what the words were on first listen.I'm a bit of a geek like that - i like to make my own interpretations of lyrics,and am sometimes scared to read waat they really are cos it mite be something tottally different to what i first heard if you know what i mean,but chord progression in this is great - i love those chords - brilliant choice.RG

you know I usually don't pay close attention the the words on songs i hear for the first or second time either, so i relate to that. chances are you probably are hearing better lyrics then what i wrote. :-)

I'd like to comment and tell you how much I love this tune Vic...How I dig the arrangement...AND to give you ample kudos for your excellent guitar work and vocal delivery...

...but I think I have imagined this post...so I won't.

That's such a coincidence. I'm at work listening to Vic Holman's newest and it was like day dreaming of day dreaming.

Good stuff as always man! Lovin it!

Imagination of a Day Dreamer
The song has a 60's psychedelic feel to it. Like the way you blended the guitars. Vocals sound good. "Imaginative" lyrics. Production sounds great.

I like
this kind 60's style of lyrics... and performance if it comes to that. It has a real retro feel to this Vic and it's excellent in it's delivery and style and has a slight Electric Light orchestra feel don't you think. Another top performance, regards M

If you can imagine it...
...it's possible!

Always reminds me of George Harrison solo stuff. That's a good thing btw.
Love the symphony of guitars here.

You knocked it out of the park.

i had a first version of this song, where the playing and guitars where a lot different. i didn't like it, trashed it, then started all over. it only took me a few hours to rerecord the music so that was a good thing

When you
mentioned Don Quijote...
rought a lot of images back to my mind.
that´s a wonderful book.
So I had so restart, download the song and listen to the music again.
It is a furious yet mellow rock song.The solo is one of your best.
Are you using a Dot Studio?
Sounds wonderful...I will get a semi hollow guitar sooner or later.
Very nice one, Vic!

actually it's a DOT deluxe, costs a little more then the studio version. but i don't think you can go wrong with a epiphone

thanks for checking out the tune, i appreciate it

You have...
... a great ability to create an enjoyable atmosphere in your songs. Always full of energy and interesting sounds that aren't too much. This is simply magnificent. Fantastic work, as usual!

I'd love to spend some time at your studio and actually 'see' the phases your songs go through. I'm sure it'd be an unforgettable experience...

i would like to see how i do it myself. all my songs start out on a acoustic. i figure out all the parts except the bass, leads and lyrics/voc's. then it's kind of winging it. excellent new song of yours. i really enjoyed it.

For a song that never happened, it's catchy as hell. This song puts on a clinic of interesting chord progressions. That chorus is delicious.

Imagination
Vic, this is great. Some of the chords connects me with the pixies. I didn't read the lyrics yet as I tend to focus on the music, and man, I love the mixed vibe of this: pop rhythm, sunny chords going darker, accordions mutating to heavy guitars and a seemingly happy voice singing a sad melody. I'm trying to imagine the lyrics now.
It may sound retro, true, but it's now.

i thought a mixed bag of style and the blending would have a imaginary effect for the whole tune. so hopefully it works.

Mash up
Dang this is like the Screaming Trees travelling back in time to 1966 and then covering The Smiths with 60's technology. So may flavours and textures I don't know where to point my ears.
Someone recently said of one of my songs "like Vic Holman". On the strength of this song that's huge praise.
Oh and that solo tone is to die for.
Bravo

Nice guits Vic
as usual. Another terrific song. I need a VH stamp that automatically drops a witty, complimentary comment on every song you post. It could be completely automated of course because I like every song you post, but then I'd miss out on listening. This is another fine addiion to the Vic Holman genre.

if you'd stop writing imaginary songs i might see them when you post rather than stumbling on them a week later. good concept since much of your stuff strikes me as dreamy - the vic 'sound' is dreamy - lots of dream metaphors and stylized dreamy vox and otherworld guitar effects. OK but what i like about this tune: killer solo. Fantastic. Super catchy chorus. the strummy verse with the airy synths - just a groovy, 'up', head bobbing kind of tune that makes me feel for a minute that its not so bad to be sitting at my desk.

Tantalus' Apple
Killer jangle. Takes me back to a bygone pop-rock era, a revolution elusive as Tantalus' apple (ooh--I gotta start a band so I can use that name!) The guitars sound fresh, not wandering at all, owing to smart structure and arrangement.
