Description
This is just a little something inbetween...
As a friend of mine used to say: 'You can only have regrets on the things you DIDN'T do.' Well, I'm uploading this song with this philosophy in mind.

I've never sang a rock song before, so this is my very first attempt... I really digged DirtyWinston's track called 'PASTA' (http://www.macjams.com/song/21680), and considering the song being an 'open collaboration', I decided to give it a go.

Well anyway, I had lots of fun putting some vocals on DirtyWinston's track. He has heard the result and said he liked it. But I guess he's just a friendly and polite guy...

UPDATE: There is now also AquilA's contribution to the song with a sreaming lead guitar after the bridge! You find it here: http://www.macjams.com/song/22093

UPDATE: OK, OK, too many insisting and this poor man surrenders. Yes, I've typed out the lyrics. Happy now? :-)

Lyrics
Girl, I like your face,
your lazy hair, your eyes full of hunger.
I wondered if we could share
a double room, a single night.

I know it's not polite,
but do you min me asking one favour.
After you disappear,
do tell the world I wasn't here

Girl you're so nice to cover my lies.
You've never seen, and I've never been.
We never came, it's only a game.

Girl, now I'm in your spell.
It wasn't planned, not meant that it happened.
Tell me it's just a dream,
it's in my mind, it's in my mind.

Feels like an agony,
but I am sure it soon will be over.
After you disappear,
just tell the world I wasn't here.

Girl you're so nice to cover my lies.
You've never seen, and I've never been.
We never came, it's only a game.

Girl, I like your face,
but your charm is not in place.

Feels like an agony,
but I am sure it soon will be over.
After you disappear,
just tell the world I wasn't here.

Girl you're so nice to cover my lies.
You've never seen, and I've never been.
We never came, it's only a game.

I can dig this.

The pasta track from DirtyWinston is a great one. Great guitars, drums, bass and overall pro performed.

Your vocals on this is just perfect Moorlandt. Cool rockin' feel to it. Maybe you could post the lyrics?

Good job:)

Dude!!! Your voice is classic goth!
A beuatiful mix between light edge Nephilim, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry and
some weird sort of Electric Prunes or something... I sooo dig it!

And that funky swing on the guitar track adds to it soo much, a wonderful
cross genre blend to my ears!

Adding to faves!
Awesome!

Well I guess anyone's got more than one side. It seems I discoverd a new one in myself when I read all these positive comments. Most of all it was tons of fun doing this. Hey thanks man for stopping by, but Bowie...? You must be kidding.

Love your singing and smooth transitions. I do hear a bit of David Bowie type style but like yours much better. It just feels stronger.
Thanks for sharing,

p.s. when song finished, it left me wanting more.

Hey Analia, you're already the second person comparing me to Bowie. Even stronger than Bowie? I don't know what to say to this. I guess you made my day. No, my week... my year I mean!

Rocks
You ought to sing more, bro', a lot more. I thought it was a little odd when you were harmonizing with yourself. Might want someone else to help on that but it was cool when you were doing the vocal unisons. Overall, the tune rocks but what I'm hearing mostly is a singer coming out of the cave. Welcome to the world!

Well, thanks Alan for calling me a caveman! But I think I understand what you mean here. I might do some more rock songs in the future, but I'll always keep doing some intimite and minimalistic tracks as well... Je suis é l a s t i q u e ...

BTW: why do you say 'girls like this song'? I've always thought that rock was more a boys' kind of genre.

Macaudion said 4807 days ago (June 20th, 2006)
My first thought was
I wanted a bunch more like this so that the gruuv would last for a long
trip -- Even though it has lots of cool and interesting change ups, I still
wanted many more versions of it - Love the Retro vibe hanging out in
this - Totally diggn' the vocals - Very hip - I REALLY like the guitar
work on this tune - Great structure - Very solid piece of work here
guys - Tight! - Thanks -- Dion

Good Collab
Nice job on the vocals, Walter. I did like it, and I am not really friendly
and polite. A screaming guitar solo would be nice, just don't ask
Alan Fraser, thanks.
Fine job.

Thanks Hurley. I would never have dared composing a rock song myself. You just gave me the most solid base I could dream of. Next time it's in French (gosh, did I really promise that?). You'll have a big laughter.

Ed Hannifin said 4807 days ago (June 21st, 2006)
Cool. My favorite parts...
...are the vocals, of course...Good rock 'n roll voice...echoes of mid-
period Bowie...

AND the drumming and rhythm guitars, which work together really
well.

No excuses, though; gotta put the lyrics up.

Can really hear that spot that could use a touch of lead guitar. That
would be frosting on what's already a really tasty cake.

Great collab, gents...

Thanks so much for your comments, Ed.
Yeah the lyrics... I must confess I did ths whole thing (lyrics writing + recording) in something less than 2,5 hours, so you can easily imagine that those lyrics are no top poetry. Well, maybe I'll post them one day when I'm real drunk or something :-)

Real deal
Pretty cool song. Your voice is right for this. Just enough pathos
without being too overwrought. Maybe a little less reverb on your
voice. I have the sense of the chorused voices losing a bit of energy or
"buzz" at times -- drops in volume and gets a bit muffled in sections.
Not sure if I explained that right.

The instrumentation is very good. Sounds like the real deal.
moorlandt said 4806 days ago (June 22nd, 2006)
Real deal
I think I understand what you mean, Richard. But it was my intention to make
the chorus quite different to the verses. Maybe I should have put the vocal
volume a bit up in the chorus...
Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Well yes, I'm trying out some different styles. And there are some new ones
on their way (through a couple of collabs I did recently). Cheers and keep
well!

Look at You!
You're a closet rocker, Walter.

You're doing some amazing stuff lately, Dirty Winston's music is great
and you've come up with a really cool set of lyrics (though you won't
type them out, I listened closely. I love that "I wonder if we could share
a double room, a single life," and I really like the way you sang "favor."

Your voice sounds terrific, I love the production. Is it my imagination or
did you cut the reverb back on your voice some from what you usually
do? It sounds great.

I seriously dig this. I've listened three times already. I think I might
wear out this track.
moorlandt said 4805 days ago (June 22nd, 2006)
Look at You!
Please don't wear it out Lisa, at least not while it's still in the picks :-)
Thanks again for your lovely comments. BTW: it's 'a single night', but I guess 'a single life' would have been more poetic.
I'm a bit confused about this reverb thing. If you point at 'Waiting again', there was no reverb used at all. Maybe it sounded that way, I don't know...
Whatever, I'm so glad you liked it. And hurry up with these other collabs, because I will be knocking on your door soon :-)

Boris the Bull said 4805 days ago (June 23rd, 2006)
thoughts from the bull...
you've got such a fabulous vocal approach, that it may just be possible
you can sing along to just about anything! seriously!

there's not much more i can add that hasn't been said, except that
musically, this is a fairly simple sounding, yet very complex piece.
playng along with it would be tremendously difficult. adding vocals
would seem near to impossible.

i can't express how impressed i am with this. absolutely terrific job!

thanks, as always!!!

Damn fine rockin' track
You've got an unusual but very effective rock voice - well done to you, I'd
have never have guessed that it was your first rock vocal. Great playing
and arrangement - I particularly like the harmonies. This is one of those
tracks that sounds even better when listened to again (and again).

Your voice sounds great; I hear a little Billy Idol, a little Bowie, but mostly I
hear you. It's a great track, and the lyrics seem very thought-provoking
(not stupid at all!). I'm one of the many who wishes you'd write them out
and submit them too!

A very fine colab all around!

Of course your voice is amazing when you do the jazzy stuff, but I'd like to hear you do more rock songs. Your voice reminds me of two rock bands you should check out if you haven't heard them: HIM and Type O Negative.
