Sitting On A Rainbow

Description
Not much to say here other than the riff fell out of my head and the lyrics fell out of my mouth. Seven months later in December, I finally got around to adding the horns and that was that. Enjoy.

Lyrics
Sitting On A Rainbow
Words and Music by Demetrius P. Hill ©2010 all rights reserved, August 10, 2009 additional lyrics February 22, 2011

Seated at a table. She looked unavailable
I was on the rebound. Just about to hit the ground.
Baby’s unattainable. Of course that was regrettable
The girl was unforgettable. Category loveable,

She was on a rainbow -- and I was on a cloud!

She was analytical. I’m a bit subliminal
Conversation literal. Situation critical.
Now things are getting serious. And she’s a little curious.
Finally took away her frown. Think she’s gonna hang around.

She was on a rainbow -- and I was on a cloud!

She was on a rainbow -- and I was sitting on a cloud!

This is the king of prince!
Very cool funky riff for the basis of this song. Almost has a latin feel to it. Funky latin ala prince. A sound that has made him millions! Dig it!

WTF!
as in, WAY TOO FUN! This is great, all the way through, including the false coda. Really enjoyed the internally rhyming lyrics and ideas. Although the super telephone-EQ vox sound is interesting, I almost wanted it to ear-pop back out to a fuller sound near the end. The singing's far too cool to strip so much of it off like that :-) But that's just me.

ttfn,
Drakonis

What a great feel this tune has. Really like the vocals. There so much good stuff happening in this. The opening strings took me by surprise then that groovy rockin' riffage came in ... very catchy melody. Electric and acoustic guitars are perfect in the mix. Excellent job with the drums and percussion. All the perks are tasty. This rocks!
Cheers Demetrius.

The kind of riff that sticks in your head all day. The wordplay with the "l" sound is clever. Hooking up is the most popular topic for a pop lyric nowadays. My one nit is that it's too short, but what's there is great!
