Miniskirts n Popsox (v.2)

Description
I wasn't sure whether to post this song. I'm not sure if its ready for primetime but it's had more work than most of my songs. It started as an attempt at a 60's style song but then a mood change happened that I liked so I stuck the two ideas together. I can't be sure it works but, hell, I like to take risks.
Lyrically it's about those times when you're young when you just don't care what the future holds, then yo look back when older and see that all those folk who said "you'll regret that when you're older" were right. The smug bastards!

UPDATE: Following on from constructive comments from my very own Jon Kalodner i.e Craig Thomas (Tempie) I've gone back to this and changed the chorus to be bigger and more in your face. I've also taken the opportunity to do a few punch ins to tighten the rhythm work, plus I've put some more work into the vox and the levels in general.

Lyrics
Way back in time

before responsibility

I had a bike that went fast

and a girl that went faster too

Breakin' the rules in miniskirts n pop sox

she didn't understand the times

and neither did I



You can't be that way forever
Cos the time comes round all too soon



All over the town

We used to run and hide from the law

I was a teenage rebellion

James Dean in a parka coat

Never on time

and never on the level

I had to grow up fast

And she just grew up too soon

Sure do like this too! What a generally cool concept you have going! Outstanding! Wish MacJams had a versioning system so this could be with the original! Very sweet my friend!

great
drum sound in the beginning. sound a bit like early pink floyd. you should publish your words with the song. I like to follow along. unexpected and cool chorus break. you have a talent for arranging. nice work

I grew up in the 70's and 80's in the south of the UK in an Irish family. I had always loved music but was never given an opportunity to explore making it for myself. About 10 years ago I bought an acoustic guitar and began strumming in earnest. To d... [see more]
