Description
Yes, here it is... my 4th LIOLI entry. As usual, I am early, but my 2-job schedule doesn't always allow me to strictly adhere to the submission rules (with regards to WHEN it should be submitted). Anyway, here's the obligatory legal train stuff...

Always interesting textures
and synth sounds in your stuff and this is no exception. Interesting take on the "train song" It fits the theme but falls into no musical cliches. This is a good and fresh approach.
Good posting.

This train's got one helluva bottom
Great subversion of the materials - and a cool track in it's own right. Nice graphic too - a complete package. If you click on the scroll bar you can play with the lights. Bet you knew that.

Surreal...
The crossing seems to exist in a very Dr. Suessian universe... the train cars keep going by, and after a while I begin to see very strange hobos hanging out of the boxcar doors as they go by. I swear I can hear their thoughts... meanwhile, the conductor is in the Synthesizer Car (a caboose fitted with walls of exotic keyboards) and playing a favourite riff.

Excellent job, Doof! Strong, fresh and fascinating.

Great description!
Meanwhile the the BrothersGibb (BeeGees) are floating through the train singing words that you think you can hear but really can't, and all the hobos can't stop dancing!

The saddest hobo
is a disco hobo dressed in gold lamé.

DISCO HOBO!
Scenario... Boxcar Willie, seeing record sales drift downward in the '70s, decides to strap on a bass guitar, put on a mirrored shirt and DANCE!

I'd be all over this in a heartbeat! Anyone else in? Could this happen?

I really want to do a Disco Hobo song.

I didn't think about the completely
different approach - I feel you've really played well with this. I'm learning!

Good stuff DD.

The dissonances in the synth and bass tracks are rippin! Really creative melodies with odd intervals and nice layering of voices throughout. I also like the inclusion of the alternate rhythm in the middle section.

Better to be patient when that crossing gate starts flashing. Remember trains don't kill people... oh, wait. Yes they do.

Can't ... stop ... dancing!
I don't dance. Don't know how to dance. Don't have the courage to dance. Don't like to dance. But sitting here at my iMac in the privacy of my room I CAN'T STOP DANCING! MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP! Sweet jam, dude.

Again?
The first half of this song I just wanted it to be over so I could stop dancing, but the second half made me have to keep listening. So here I am on my second listen, and I think you need to get the BeeGees to add some vocals to this.

fav
Title fer sure. As I've come to expect with DD tunage an eclectic and interestng tapestry of sonics. The choices on the synths were metaltastic. Like the central vibration I get when I'm on the red line, your interpretation is the closest to the real ride. well done

the beginning was a bit harsh
but i loved the crushed hi-hat section---delicately done. what'd you do with that piano loop? I couldn't catch it anywhere.

Ah yes!
Found this while browsing through my favorites list, so I had to hear it again. It's still one of my favorite jams here. Who would have though that a LIOLI piece would have so much staying power?
