Description
Lavalamp unplugged. I know it could have used a nice solo, but I thought I'd run it by you all first.

Lyrics
On and On


If you see me coming
There is nothing, I'd rather do

Silver cockroach ceiling
Crawling underneath my pair of shoes

And this thing goes on and on like a cold in June
And this thing goes on and on like a Sunday afternoon

Oh my, the tingling
Take my covers and my heater, too

Counting all my tiny feelings
A lot of pain, I never knew

And this thing goes on and on like a cold in June
And this thing goes on and on like a Sunday afternoon

Several made up stories
Break the camera; let's start a coup

Exercise the fever
The albatross has never flew (flown)

And this thing goes on and on like a cold in June
And this thing goes on and on like a Sunday afternoon

What the . . .?
Cool song. I have to say though. Back in the 60's we would have taken some psychedelics and all have known exactly what this song was about (lol). Now, well . . its just like yellow matter custard, dripping from a dea dogs eye (;->). Anyway, this is an interesting unpluged tune. I think it stands on its own, but could also be dressed up if you want (acoustic lead?). I like the singing a lot.

I can write some logical lyrics, too. But, I tend to stray into those free-form ways. Just open thoughts, you know?

Mixing it up a bit.

Glad you liked it.

Good sound quality
LL unplugged is a good thing, its short yet sweet but rocks out like no tomorrow, great addition to the pantheon of rock n roll here at MJ

Dave stands naked
bare bones and i don't think it should be any other way.

"Silver cockroach ceiling, Crawling underneath my pair of shoes." that paints a surreal picture.

the Buddy Holly hiccups was cool, too!

No need
to add anything more to this in my opinion, sometimes its best to keep something stripped back and clean, and this is one of them. You vocals just keep getting better too. Keep up the good work.

cool
I really like when the drums come rolling in on that second line. Midi or loop? I've got such a bad ear for those things, I can never tell. I also like the lyrics. I used to write off the wall lyrics almost exclusively. It comes more natural for me. I'd carry around a little notepad and write down words I thought sounded cool or funny and just through them in anywhere. Example being, "You've got a magazine rack and some cheapskate DNA". Love it! Keep the crazy stuff coming!

Just the GB loops, that's what I use.

Thanks for visiting some of my other songs, too.
Always great to have an artist you respect appreciate your work.

solo
need not apply :-) I think you've struck a great balance with the acoustic set. Your voice sounds passionate and I luv the lyrics. Sensical or not, they do create cool imagery. My fav line is "like a cold in June".

Far out
I really wish I could have written this. If "The Feeling" had released it they would have had another hit record with it.
I was hearing strains of Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan, Liam Gallagher and Mick Jagger in the vocal - not a bad mix!
Thanks for posting :)

Thoughts from the Bull...
You've got such a unique approach and style that always makes me feel like i'm walking into something special.

this one's no different. your vocal delivery here is just awesome. i love that voice! especially the "oo-ah-oon!"

musically, it's fairly easy on the ears. the drums are okay, and honestly - though they sound terrific - aren't even necessary. this would be fun to hear without the drums as a straight acoustic track - you are one of the rare ones who could pull it off!

still, the percussion is tight and adds a fuller dimension to the song. i love the words and my only wish is that this were longer.

fabulous work here! an easy fave!
