Good job of describing your brain cells doing jumping jacks. Hope you feel better...er... calmer soon. Seriously, this is nicely energetic and fun. :-)

after trying several different new-fangled cold medicines - none of which did much to alleviate my symptoms one whit - i found an old bottle of Robitussin Cold & Cough CF and tried that.

it worked! an hour later i felt like a human being again. that sense of elation was part of the impetus for this tune.

(and yes, the formula contains pseudoephedrine - you guessed it!)

thanks

over the counter
or under the counter?
This tune says I'm going to clean up the house and enjoy it.

high on energy!

actually you can buy it behind the counter. these days, here anyway, you have to ask a clerk to get the products that contain pseudoephedrine.

it was a "little" over the top on energy - i think it's 145 beats per minute.

thanks

Happy!!
This gave me images of jumping jelly beans...bubbly and full of energy.. ...a caffeinated musical romp that got my feet itching... except that it's past midnight and i did not want to wake the other people in the house and make them wonder if I'm trying to shake off the bed bugs that have crawled all over me. LOL. With songs like this, who needs Prozac?

thanks!

i'm glad you enjoyed the energy level. maybe i should add a warning label: do not listen after midnight!

Pleasant and New
Yeah... Like they said, the song is very energetic. Almost euphoric. Gets me feelin' like finding obscure ways of enjoying myself that I haven't even imagined yet. Nice beat... A simple, not-too-fat, not-too-skinny GB mix. You've got style.

i like simple - sometimes i rather like sweating the details on just a few tracks than juggling 40 tracks. although i've gone to that extreme at times too.

but be careful not to break your brain, my friend

Too many drugs I reckon
Good fun but think about those brain cells....

the dark side of that cold medicine is the dextromethorphan. that's suspected of causing brain damage in large doses. it's abused as a dissociative. i must admit that just the recommended dosage causes a shift in perception (for me anyway). but it sure quelled the coughing.

this is
a really fun song. i was enjoying the synth parts and then that unexpected surf guitar came in. great little ode to conquering the bodies ills. so catchy, i'll be hearing it for weeks.

your comment prompted me to go back and open that project in GB to remind me why that guitar got in there. i have not a clue. i don't remember anything about building this one. hmmm... maybe DXM is not so good, coughs or not! :-)

thanks

this reminds me

i'd love to open a "museum of temporary art" someday.

it would feature entirely time-limited art forms:

ice sculpture, food sculpture, pictures drawn on frosty panes, balloon towers, wind chimes made out of extremely thin glass, etc. etc.

what do you think?

thanks

as i commented earlier, it was more so the sudden escape from congestion, coughing and sneezing that pleased me. i'm actually a bit scared of that DXM stuff.

Wow!
That's exactly what it sounds like inside my own head, as I'm reaching for my 44 mag to blow it out of there! Nice work Smokey.... Sometimes you scare me bro (};-P) Great production as always.

Very Eurovision of you!
I can just see the (pick an Eastern European country) boys and girls at Eurovision. They're on stage and the music (your music) is playing but someone forgot to turn the mics on.

.. tres amusant, sehr komisch, etc

We need more up and poppy music - makes the world a happier place!

Like it!

I'll have what you're having!
Actually I just went down to the kitchen for some garlic between blowing my nose ;-) Too late I'm afraid, but maybe this song will turn the cold around. Sweet!

i hope your cold has gone away.

i hadn't had such a nasty cold myself in a very long time. not fun.

by the way - garlic really works - i think it makes people stay away so you don't catch their viruses : - )

thanks for listening

I'm not sure Smokey
but I think this is really perverse in a Disnet "It's a Small World" way. I love it - but I want to kill a bunny or something. Seriously - cool track - very Europop.

kill a bunny? this reminds me of what Ax wrote earlier somehow.

there is something disturbing about the tempo - it's like a runaway train, a machine run amok, feedback galore - it's like stand back! something's gonna blow any second.

(maybe i'm just getting old)
