Description
Len
I was very angry when I started to write this song, but quite the reverse by the time it was finished.
You can hear the original version of it here. My neice Aisuluu also helped me with some lovely backing vocals, which we had fun doing.
I decided to once again ask my friend Christopher Chaplin to help me with the arrangement and orchestration and this is his version. I feel very privileged to have Christopher's friendship and help and consider him to be an exceptional and very unique musical talent. You can find more of Christopher's music here.

Christopher
This is my second musical adventure with the ingenious Len Gold.  The original audio for Stab Me that Len sent me was already complete, and pretty much perfect as is, I thought...  anyway, I attempted a kind of minimalist orchestral remix with it, to see where that would go...  It was a joy working on this... I kept listening to a lot of John Adams as a reference for the orchestration.  Hope you like it.

Lyrics
Stab Me, Why Don't You Stab Me
Stick It Right In
Twist It, Twist and Turn It
Do It With A Grin

Oh... It Hurts 

Hate Me, Why Do You Hate Me
What Is It About
Tell Me, Softly Show Me
Email, No Need To Shout

Stab Me, Why Don't You Stab Me
Stick It Right In
Twist It, Twist and Turn It
Do It With A Grin

Creepin' Crawlin'
Weasel Talkin'
Slippin' Slidin'
Drippin' Grovellin'
Just Slink Away
Slink Away

Greedy Cheesy
Creepy Crawly
Seedy Weedy
Nasty Shady
Just Slink Away
Slink Away

Shameless Aimless
Tasteless Brainless
Beautiless Charmless
Characterless Boneless
Just Slink Away
Slink Away 

Cheater Squirmer
Exploiter Avoider
Babbler Belcher
Lumbar Stabber
Just Slink Away
Slink Away

funny bone is connected to the trombone
There is something delightful about the trombone blat. The orchestration and composition are meticulous... strangely appealing. The particular choice of reverb on the female vox created a muffled effect that was unfortunate, as the voice was perfect. The crisp brass and woodwind angular orchestration sound very Orff-school, great in my book. I always enjoy your collaborations together.

Smouldering
angry song. Interesting dichotomy between the twinkiling instruments and the slow plodding vocal. The only suggestion I can make is to clear some EQ space out for the vocal so it sits in the mix a bit clearer I would guess in the 2k area of the band. I think you can accomplish that without affecting the richness of the backing track at all. Very innovative song, creative and well executed. Enjoyed it!

Stab
First bit of music that went into my head today, and it stabbed my subconscious into overdrive. Man, what a trip. This could be something from Peter Gabriel in terms of underlying structure. But what's up top --- the orchestration and unique Len vocals --- that's incredible and totally unexpected. Great lyrics. Somehow reminds me of one of my exes. But that's another story. Wonderfully creative, and fully ready to take its place in the Gold catalogue. Tip o' the hat to Mr. Chaplin, as well.

Musical adventure is the right word. And the anger seems almost celebratory here: this is really something! Prime and backing vox are in fine form. Some really funny and well as powerful lines too: "Softly Show Me/ Email, No Need to Shout..."

i really like your neice's voice
it's very emotive yet unadorned, i really like her collaborations with you. i also enjoyed the instrumentation, like your last tune, just a really creative letting loose of all kinds of interesting ideas, i like the brass and woodwinds, the way you use them at times as percussion, same with your voice, especially toward the end, very percussive phrasing. and the strings and piano are fantastic, really like how they soar in lift the tune into a kind of a rat pack lounge tune, especially the brutal lyrics and growl over the laid back music, brought to mind some of Frank's deep track stuff.

Opera
Klingon Opera to be more precise.... I think I heard this in a dream... avant garde... although I must express my disappointment and felt like you could have been more obtuse ... [grin wink] Aisuluu's vocals are very supportive of yours. like how the fade sounds as if you are walking into a much harder space.

Post punk orchestral angst pops,somebody or something got under your skin?

The lyrics to this would sound right being snarled out from behind a wall of thrashing and shrieking guitars...but this way they are even more effective,there is an air of bewilderment to the singer,sort of I know you got it in for me....but why ? What did I do to deserve this ? Cool job by CC there on the Orchestra too,great job fellahs.

Gee I hope you feel better, having gotten all that off your chest! :)

Seriously, this is an interesting piece of work, because you really can tell there is unbridled anger in there - and not just because of the lyrics. The kind of anger that can make you crazy - actually quite fascinating to listen to. Fun tune - I thoroughly enjoyed it - thanks!

Great contrast between the meticulous arrangement and the angry voice.

Did you ever hear De Staat by composer Louis Andriessen, who has a minimalist/Big band approach. I guess you'd like it.

Just listening
to De Staat, funnily the only reference I found easily, that I could listen to, was a video posted by John Adams. John Adams is quoted as an influence by Christopher above. There is a definite sinilarity. So I think you are spot on with this.

Something very special ...
if your going to do an orchestration mix .. and you happen to have Christopher Chaplin on tap .. and an excellent female vocalist in her own right .. how could this go wrong really? My only crit was sometimes (1st couple of verses) I felt the vocals and orchestration was competing a little for room in the mix .. I find a smidge of "ducking" can quickly remedy this .. or just some track grouping and some volume automations as an alternative suggestion.
Sorry I took so long to get to this Len .. busy man! lol .. not short of a comment or 500 here anyways :o)

Comment 163
There should be about 1,000 of these, Len and Chris. This crazy song and its amazing arrangement are truly sui generis (one of a kind) and absolutely stunning to listen to. And even though I am a little late to be listening, I just wanted to chime in with my 2 cents... Wow. Those low bones and chirping winds are amazing! This is an intricately arranged song. ... Oh, God! at 3:40 you just go over the top. You guys have a lot of courage and some way bizarre ideas about orchestration. What magic you create here. I will have to listen to this a good number of times to understand how you pulled it off. Amazing.
