Description
Think it's been a while. Hope you like this new one. Hope I can spend more time around here a bit more often.

And I also hope some of my old MJ buddies will get back into our crazy little thing here at MacJams.

Lyrics
Silver Light

Follow my arrow everywhere
Leading me back without a care
You can see shadows on the sun
Look at them laugh at everyone

Finding my way back from the sun
Part of my halo’s on the run
You can see lightning underground
Listen to the thunder all around

You can see shadows on the sun
Look at them laugh at everyone

Silver light coming down
Thorns of your branches cover the ground
Fingers are cold like the moon
Playing a song out of tune

Bearing the cross over the hill
Silence is warmth, keeping still
His heart is good going sad
Witness has lost all that he had

I see a mad man I push
Into a hot burning bush
Climbs down a ladder with me
Into the bottomless sea

Silver light coming down

I can never actually "think" when I come up with lyrics, sp they're not so thoughtful.

Oh, I'll never leave

I like the vocals ... the low octave hi thing works great. Good smooth delivery of your lyrics. Nice dreamy guitar mix. The bridge/chorus picks up nice ... like the melody. Enjoyed this.

Good song Dave. Nice changes and a strong melody. I like when the drums open up at 1:35. Great clean guitar sounds. Is that an acoustic and electric together? Nice texture. Your voice sounds really good when you go up in register and really cut loose at 2:49. Great post! Welcome back!

Thanks for the kind words Vic. I really want to get back into making some music. I do have some on the burner. It's just the mixing and additional instruments that slow me down.

Hmm hmmm hmm
I really like that humming part, this song is so catchy. Great vocals & lyrics, and the music has a darkish kind of haunting vibe at times, which is cool. Great stuff!

Some cool images in the lyric "shadows on the sun, ", "lightning underground". I like the verse chord progression, then the momentum picks up when the drums come in @ 1:35.

apb said 2342 days ago (June 26th, 2011)
I hear

some Toy Dolls in the vocal delivery (I thought this was headed into upbeat punk after the nice gentle intro). Lush guitar work, not keen on the flanger(?) on the el. guitar that comes in around 01:38-ish..didn't think that blended as well as it could with the acoustic...love the "I see the mad man I push" section...nice vibe from the vocals and the drum lift is noteable there too. Exellent stuff Dave. Christian rock?

I'm surprised..
...that nobody had picked up on the lyrics before. Not religious at all, but still I dig history and mythology, so I did have that in mind.
Appreciate the comment about the flang. Sometimes it sounded cool and sometimes bad. Guess I can be perfect lol. Glad you enjoyed.

Boom straight in with the vox. Love the doubled vox (it's a fave technique of my own too)
Dig the humming.
This is big and spacey. That kick really thuds well.
The panned plucked guitar is ace as is the bass.
"I see a mad man" is a truly lifting moment.
I've listened to lots of your stuff. This goes to the top of my lava hit list.

was drawn in
I love the progression to this- all the different parts- growing in intensity. Very dynamic. I don't get the lyrics but I like them and want to think about their meaning. They draw you in.

Cool post Dave
Sorry I'm late! I like the doubled vocal at the start, and the whole sound is very well done. This might be one of my favs of yours. There's something that is reminiscent of the late 60s Brit bands here, but I can't put my finger on it.
It would definitely be good to see some more old faces around MJ - not that there aren't some great new ones, but I do miss the "good old days"!
:)
Cheers from Oz,
Neil
