REQUIEM FOR OTIS

Lyrics, Vocals, Music: Jerry Freeman
Angels: Anne Cozean

Life is good with exceptional vice
more games for me to play and another roll of them dice

Dies Irae Requiem, little baby
follow us up on this angel's stair
to forever, it's a long affair

Ghostly haints stop that pestering me
I'm going to see Miss hot Ruby Lee

Rum soaked cigars waiting to be smoked
and plenty more fancy bars with honeys to be stroked

Sanctus Kyrie, Elyseum
don't delay man, come on in
your last chance to rid your sin

Bugger off you ghost can't you see
I've got gold and diamonds here and it's all just for me

Lux Aeturnuem, Domine
silly little man to hesitate
you could face a wicked fate

I ain't got time for a bunch of angel talk of heaven
cause I'm throwing out my dice and they're all rolling up seven

I ain't listening to you, just want to get high
I still got a lot of drugs left Baby to try

Dies Irae boom shaka boom
it's too bad my foolish friend
there ain't no more room

Hey wait a minute, I don't like the sound of that
maybe things didn't look quite right from where I sat

Stop this joking, causing my misery
I changed my mind, now come on and get me

Woes me, for eternity
guess I'll just have a smoke, a drink, and play with Ruby Lee

REQUIEM FOR OTIS
Cool concept, and the contrast between the vocal styles of Otis and the angels couldn't be more pronounced. Very effective. Polished pro sounding backer with some rippin guitar. Terrific vocals.

Latin?
Great sounding song with a nice sense of fun. I'll have to brush up on my Latin though :-). The guitar solo at the end is top notch. Thanks, Peter.

jerry (brother otis) freeman
jerry freeman is a crazy growling man:
he growls and plays sax on STOP YER MESSIN WITH ME
he growls and goes nuts in BLUTO & OLIVE
he was behind the growling concept & music in COUGAR LOVE
I met him at SongRamp, but he no longer has his music online
i'll make sure he gets this link, folks.
thank you so much for listening.

I like it again, Anne
That guitar still blasts me away. Cool idea for a song. I'm tempted to take up smoking again so I can sing like that. Your vocals were great! Always a treat to hear you. Peace. Terry

Requiem for Otis
Hard for me to wrap my arms around the concept as the sisters in the "Angels" role :-) Angelic voices yes. Jerry's got the quintessential delta bluesman voice. The music was a wild, fun ride.

Such a funky rhythm section.
Just love the way it cooks along underneath the whole thing, especially that bass. Wow. That is NICE...Those female harmonies and vocal lines that just ooze out of the vocal solo are really wonderful and seem so organic to the whole concept of the number. ... You took a lot of care in mixing this and the effort shows (not literally) in how smooth every element flows from the next. WOW. Those guitar riffs are spectacular!!! What a wonderful collaboration of talents. I can't imagine a more expert performance or recording.

A very impressive groove going on here, with lovely angel voices providing counterpoint to the raunchy vocals of Mr. Freeman. Fantastic!

Together
Much enjoyed!

Not sure that persuasion by beautiful female voices is the best way to make a male reprobate give up his hedonistic ideas? ;-)

Really well put together and performed throughout.

Thanks for the post.
