Crazy Feels Like


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I was shooting for one thing and ended up with another thing, but this thing, I can live with. One track of dulcimer, embellished at points - one bass software instrument controlled by a Roland Fantom, some drum loops and vocals. Here it comes!

Lyrics
I'm having issues
a year subscription's worth
I'm causing drama
in a way unbecoming to a gentle soul

Losing function
in the gray matter battlefield of my brain
here it comes again
at the start of the circle, everything's the same

this is what going crazy feels like

I'm hearing voices
they're ringing in my head
I'm seeing writing
on the ceiling at night
while I'm tryin' to sleep

I'm feelin' cold hands
running over my skin underneath the sheets
here it comes again
at the end of the circle everything repeats

this is what going crazy feels like
you've shown me the way
so this is what going crazy feels like
it feels okay

I think I like it

I'm seeing angels
they always follow me
they're tricky devils
and they think I'm stupid, that I do not see

I am afflicted
with a deep desire to kill the pain
I am addicted
to the madness

Hey, Really dig this track. Like your level of production. I totally love when the thin distorted guitar comes in on the chorus. Nice harmonies. I also can relate to the fact that when I start a song with a certain idea and then it can turn into something entirely different. Happens more often than not. Clean and groovy. While you have a decided better voice than me, here's a track of mine:

Merci
Thanks, Racerat - I appreciate you listening! Actually, that's distorted dulcimer you're hearing, but that's an honest mistake. I will look forward to listening to your track.

Man, Bing, this is really good...
I really enjoyed my first listen to this. And the second and third. This is flawless. Great groove, sweet feel. Very creative and effective treatment of the subject. The arrangement and the lyrics were married perfectly. You also sang it with confidence, skill and finesse. BG tracks are extremely effective and beautifully executed.

Everything about this song works. Really, really good, Bing. Wow. By far my favorite of yours.

voices...
writing on the ceiling, cold hands and angels. Sounds like good stuff! I'll be having some of whatever you've been taking. Not too much though :-)
I liked everything about this except the drums at the start. They sounded slightly off to my ears. Great harmonies, top voice. Well done.
dreadmon said 4583 days ago (December 7th, 2006)
You want none of this
You don't want none of what I'm on - it's called SURREALITY. Yeah, those drums were bothering me too - I know the next guy, Bryan, nailed it - I should've done some loop surgery. Thanks for the kind words!

Cool Song
Nice to hear you're still wandering around Bing. Quite well sung, played and produced too... I notice you've stopped down playing your singing now too which is great.

Just a quick crit though.... the drum track is lagging just a tiny bit... its like you're playing in 4/4.... but the drum track is doing something like 4.1/4 cause there's just a tiny pause at the end of every 4 beats. Either it needs to be stretched (slowed down) a little... or maybe you have to do some editing to the loop itself or something. Eitherway, its very noticable to me (but I am a bit of a drummer anyway) and its dragging the piece a bit.

Other than that, pretty cool song Bing, good to hear you round again.

drakonis said 4584 days ago (December 7th, 2006)
From Pink to Grey...
Very well-written/sung track here... a bit of the Pink Floyd theme of "slowly losing one's mind" that is so psychologically chilling, with the dulcimer strumming a Chinese drip-da-drip delightfully monotone water torture that really got under my skin, in a good way. You singing was great... my only critique was that when the chorus came in, it was a bit abruptly panned out to the sides, and it sounded like the background noise behind the singing was audibly faded in, then out, at the start/end of the chorus, both of which were a little distracting to me. But cool song!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Well put
Thanks, Drak! You put perfectly in words some of what I was subliminally thinking about, such as the percolating nature of the dulcimer. The pan burst at the chorus was fairly intentional, but still experimental - it's good to note that you found it distracting, something I should be aware of. Thanks again for listening and commenting!

Favourite of yours so far!
Love this one Bing - excellent vox, lyrics and all round production. As Bryan mentioned, the drums are really doing something odd on the 4th beat - slight lag, especially in the first half of the song.

You seem to have really moved away from what I often heard as a "dramatic" voice - more actor than musician at times (not a great explaination I know). This very much shows you as a singer of modern music - much more relaxed and less "trained" sounding to my ears. Hasn't done the song any harm at all. Easily my favourite of yours so far despite the (slight) drum glitch.

It shows!
Thanks Neil, very much appreciated - I'm wondering why I didn't go to work on that drum part, more I listen to it. I think my intention was to completely choose another loop eventually after I layered everything in, just forgot to go back and get those stark, unlayered bits out.

Very perceptive of you, regarding my approach to singing. It's been a very interesting turning point, both in performance and in writing as well. Thanks for the encouragement!

You have definitely...
taken your singing, production, the whole sheebang to a higher level. This is such a cool sounding song. The dulcimer winding around your vox, the fun crazy lyrics all make for a keeper of a song... if only the download button was working.
Kudos, mate...

...if you're inclined I finally got a tenor sax again. My two most recent songs are tenor riffing instrumentals.

Good to hear something from you again!
Excellent production (I think I hear the drum thing others have mentioned, but I'm listening much more to the vocals and that dulcimer playing.) The vocals have a very relaxed tone quality, almost a detached style. Like, are you watching yourself slowly go crazy? And your range is so smooth from bottom to top - it really is very nice, and enjoyable to listen to.
On the production - I was actually surprised to see that you are using GarageBand - usually things that sound this good are done on Logic.

Been crazy so long, looked like sane to me
Thanks so much Kristy Jo! I think I AM watching myself go crazy. LOL! The seeming lightness of the vocals was a little bit premeditated - instead of angst, I wanted to project a sort of loaded calm. Wow! Nice comment about sounding like a Logic production - I haven't started messin' with program yet. But thanks for that lift!

Attention to detail
Hey John, thank you for listening! Which elements are you referring to as flourishes in production? Knowing will help me continue to guage just how much I put into a song. Like this one's pretty sparsely arranged, almost to the point of minimalism. I think I'm writing these days with an ear towards simplistic structures that can translate easily to the stage. Then again, getting that particular sound with nine tracks of vocals while playing live may be tough.

I feel so late to the party!
Bing, I am just seeing more and more of how much of MUSICIAN you are...

And I'm afraid I've had to alert the Folk Police.

Dulcimer is just allowed to do certain things, and this one has plainly developed some ways about it...

Well, really, I like everything about this. And I'm embarrassed to say that I'm not hearing the flaw in the drumming. I'm usually sensitive to that, but I wouldn't have picked up on it.

I'm really impressed at the vocals. Your singing, your harmonies, your phrasing is all really good...

Really good song as a song, too... well arranged, good lyrics, structure...

Good stuff happening with this one...

The Fritters said 4582 days ago (December 8th, 2006)
Nice and draggy
I actually find the slight drag in the drums really appealling, as it seems to create this lazy groove that most people would have a tendency to steamroll flat by cleaning it up. I think it goes along with the bass line in the verses. If anything a slight change just on the chorus in the drum part so that it's playing the pulse of the bass might work for me. I like the vocal panning in the chorus and I wouldn't change that a bit. It would be too dense with everything placed in the center. I think this is my favorite of yours so far! Great singing performance!

Shaggy's Brother Draggy
Aloha, Jim! Well, it's good to hear from another camp on the drums. I've often wondered about some of the loops that sound like they might be a little off. What I did here was lay the main beat up against some more straight forward loops to keep some of its EQed elements. I aimed for loose with the bass, though too loose in the chorus, like you said.

Thanks for the support and encouragement, man.

I'm really digging the vocals, especially the harmonies, they are terrific. The melody is understated, then out of no where an electric guitar comes in and completely changes the complexion of the song. It's a great listen!

Thank you very much for giving it a listen! I do have to mention that you're actually hearing an acoustic dulcimer the entire time - with some of the rhythm track sent through GB amp models. Those amp models are killer - almost as good as having a tube amp. Almost. Thanks again for listening and taking the time to comment!

so much to say here
can't believe you are getting that warm present vocal sound with a 58... this should be a commercial for them... part of the reason I think, is that your voice is so warm and (Looking for a word) perfect really... I love the vocal performance.. harmonies and the radio voices answering... good art... exellent mixing, sound choices... leads me to believe that in the end, you must be sane

bravo

Alannah said 4581 days ago (December 9th, 2006)
At first glance ...
.. I read through the lyrics before the song was 1/4 way through ... they are along the vein of the types of lyrics I tend to write myself ... so of course I was an instant fan ! hahaha your voice is great ... like everyone else .. I luvved the harmonies. There was this one tiny little line somewhere in the middle where there was this one lone little voice that sounded like it was in a time machine ... best part for me ! (popped up in my left ear ... however, who knows if my headphones are on backwards it might actually be panned to the right). I would have liked to hear that particular little voice (with whatever effect it had on it) pop up a few more times in the song.
Check out my latest song called Sleep (w JScott and Alannah)
dreadmon said 4580 days ago (December 11th, 2006)
How does that song go?
"Mama, weer all crazee now" or something to that effect - yes, Alannah, the two of us are probably adjacent branches on the crazy tree. "I'm goin' off the branches of the crazy tree!" Thanks for the kind words, A - they are most appreciated!

Now what is this voice of which you speak? Are you hearing voices too? LOL! Actually, I think that was panned to the right ear, so you might have your headphones on backies, no worries there, though. It sounds like I sort of auto-panned it, I know I did that with the accompanying blip-bloop-bloop from the loop toolbox. The voice is saying "I'm hearing voices" backwards and I think I slapped a little reverb or something on there. It had occurred to me maybe to have it pop in more, but then I decided to really make this a "less-is-more" production. However, as I continue to look at it - I may actually end up putting some more voices in at the end, in between the repeating mantra. I'm glad you liked this one, thanks again for listening! When are we working together again?

Contrast
Well, as usual Bing you deliver the crystal-clear production I've come to just expect from you (getting spoiled. ;-) ) The song is terrific in so many ways, but what I found truly remarkable is the competency in the songwriting. It might sound like an odd thing to say, but this is truly a well-developed, well-structured song. Not to take anything away from the rest of the gang here at MJ, but something this thoughtfully put together doesn't happen all the time, so you should be really chuffed with the songwriting.

Voice: terrific. Harmonies: spectacular. Dulcimer: Cool and versatile.

I love that you've got a song about going crazy and it's so laid-back, so that it has that, "hey, this is so groovy and mellow and...what did he just SAY?" vibe going on .

Hee-hee
Aloha, Lisa - thank you so much! That is really a capital comment and I honestly laughed out loud at the last bit about "hey, this is so groovy and mellow and...what did he just SAY?" That's sort of this song in a nutshell. You know, you're right, I am very, very pleased with how this came out because it could have easily gone in a different direction, but I approached the writing and recording in a deconstructive way - flip-flopping verses, dropping bridges and trying to channel emotions without telegraphing them. I'm afraid this song was a total fluke, so you're right - it don't happen very often!

Thanks again for the blessing of your comments, for listening and for the healthy laugh!

Thank you, Tim! I'm glad you dig the sparseness of this, it was very tempting to sort of add a bunch of other elements and effects. I'm VERY glad you dig the lyrics, especially "at the end of the circle everything repeats." It may refer to a sort of craziness directly, but it also has a sort of universal application. There are quite a few layers in this song, and I'm actually just discovering them! Thanks again for listening and taking the time to comment.

From filler to killer
Thanks, Michael! I think you have sided with many others on the "hook" for this tune, which actually was a sort of tossed-off solution for that little slow rock-out jam. I was going to throw a rap of some sort in there, but thought it would be too busy or wordy - "I think I like it" was a scratch -track ad-lib that I ended up keeping. Now, I think it's the key line in the song. Thanks again for listening!

Coolness!
Hey David, thanks a lot man! This one is copyrighted and I'm certainly going to push it around some, based on the feedback I've gotten here. I'm very happy that it lends itself well to repeated listens and numerous P.O.V.'s - that's a hard thing to manage, and I think it sort of happened in this instance. Thanks again for listening and for the encouragement, I appreciate it!

Too kind!
Thanks Bran, you are very generous! I'm stoked that you like the lyrics - they took a little bit of work to get 'em the way I thought they'd gel with the music. Thanks again for listening!

at the end of the circle everything repeats
you rock dude. won't repeat stuff already mentioned in the comments above - i like the song a lot. great singing and production. just one small note to this: personally i would like louder drums, but i understand the singing is the most important in this one, so it might be only me... but - at least at the end of the song - when you repeat "at the end of the circle everything repeats" - that's just one great spot to make the drums stand out, to give them more open hats or something, more snares maybe... but that's really a small thing and the matter of taste. just an idea. keep on rocking.
cheers

Good suggestion
Hey Baki - thanks a lot man, I appreciate you listening and for your input. The ending does want for some fills and stuff, doesn't it? I think it was busier at one point, but the loop editing issue, which was brought up earlier, sort of made things sound cluttered. Ideally, when I revisit this song, I need to adjust the main backbeat a little, otherwise - I'm with you - some extra tomwork would be very cool. In the body of the song, extra volume as well - we are in agreement there. Thanks again for listening!

Showin' me the way...?
...if feels "ok".

"I like it"...big time.

Definitely into this. Totally your own style.

I'm always blown away by serious lyricists. You've definitely got something to say here that I can relate to. The music works perfectly with it.

Thanks, dreadmon.

Thanks G-man, for picking up on all that's going on here. Horror couched in whimsy - I'll bet the Grimm Brothers were rockers. Thanks for listening!

good work
i am consistantly impressed by your songs. i wouldn't have thought one could use a dulcimer in an alternative song, but you certainly pulled it off. i like the opening 2 lines of the lyrics as well, that is clever.

Many thanks
Thank you, man - I appreciate that! Straddling the line between traditional folk music and rock is pretty fun because you really do get the best of both worlds - especially with an instrument like the mountain dulcimer, which has sort of an image of being firmly on the folk side of the fence. Thanks for listening!

I love the harmonies used for the vocals and the effects used for the mix. The dulcimer sounds great, too! Lovely work!
