Song Description

This song is for the MJ Covers Challenge.

I decided to do a cover of michael2's original version of Everyone Relies on Time.

This song is also a collaboration. Many thanks to SmokeyVW for singing the backup vocals and helping with the choir. I had so much fun helping him on the MJ Coffee House Challenge song Meanwhile The Replicators I'm glad he could return the favor.

I changed the key, changed it to 5/4 (I adore 5/4), emphasized the "to heal" idea, and changed the repetitions a bit. I also reused some elements from michael2's original song, changed the bridge a little, and closed up by referring to "i passed your house ... again" to stress the obsession and dissociation in the lyrics.

And a big nod to michael2 and Bud for reviewing my early versions.

Lyrics
Everyone Relies on Time
by michael2

half a mile from here
i saw your car
half a mile from here
i passed your house

again

it's too early to tell
if i've gone queer
it's too late to say
that i feel weird

today
it's always today

everyone relies on time
everyone relies on time

to heal

how can i be sure
that we're both here
how can you be sure
that now's the time

it's too early to tell
if i've gone queer
it's too late to say
that i feel weird

today
it's always today

everyone relies on time
everyone relies on time

to heal

everyone relies on time
everyone relies on time

i passed your house
again

Yes, yes
Very nice. Really good sounds in there, and the whole thing flows like it's just a segment of an infinite, ever-playing, universal song. That last "I passed your house...." is terrifying.

this is fantastic Mary Jane
even better than I remembered. I'm going to have to spend some time with this one and really figure out how you did this drastic change. The song was always meant to have the heart of a torch song, but my version buried that in psych noise, you really brought out that dark sense of ambiguous confusion and loss. thanks so much.

Vocals

Great vocals job .
The harmonies and mood remind me a bit of Radiohead , one of my favs bands of these last years .

You really pulled this together nicely
The 5/4 time is great and the vocals are wonderful. Smart choice getting help from Smokey - he's a champ. Glad I could help a little in the early stages and thrilled that you asked me. Fantastic tune.

Scary -
Very brooding. The 5/4 gives it a bit of an unbalanced feeling. As if there won't be enough time in eternity for you to heal. Creepy in a good way.

is anyone on time
some great emotion in this Smokey's voice fills it nice when everyone relies on time starts. An off beat strange tune. One suggestion maybe in one part you could turn off the echo .. But really I should be the last one to talk. I enjoyed this!

Nice production
a little on the dark side with the feeling but not the less an acceptable ear full.
