Lyrics
just the same old cliche
play your game and walk away
I don't wanna play your game
at that game Im kinda lame

lonely in a crowded room
eye contact across perfume
stealthily you drift right by
with seduction in your eye

looking for some one to drive insane
I don't wanna play your silly game no more

silly game
I think its time the rules are changed
it heads I lose
tails you win
I'll wind up on my head again

field of flowers on the wall
I'll walk away and take my ball
I'm so tired of keeping score
you got everything
and you still want more

bla.... blaa

Nice retro feel
to this and with a warm nostalgic feel.... it does have that sense of being young about it and I think the playing, the slow build up and then the falling away at the end all work well. The harmonies sound great too. Thanks and regards M

Thanks Feter
The last four months have felt like four years, and I feel four years older... I recorded this with a temperature of 103F because it was the only day I had. The slide is a very good suggestion, that I wouldn't know how to accomplish..... I will keep the idea of a collab with you in my mind....Regards

Iguana Pop
Great vocal - really reminds us of Iggy pop. This has a nice live feel, and great harmonies .... but that voice .... aces!

I love Iggy
Wish I had his body fat ratio.....I only sound live because I don't know how to sound studio. Thanks for the listen.

Wow
what a great piece I love the simplicity in this. Sometimes Those old ones are the best there is not much in the way when it comes to being creative. It flows before all the forced opinions take hold. Love the ending. Excellent

Wasn't it Picasso that said That all children are born artists, and when you grow up you forget how. ........
Glad you were able to make it to the end. :) Cheers.

great listen
great mix of humor and truth in a cool trad rock structure. love that "cause at that game i'm kinda lame" line. also really like the flowery lead bits and the choral backups at the end. great production, great composition, blah blah comes down to this is a really nice listen dude. Thanks.

From the Been There, Done that Dept...
Some of us have lived that game again and again. Some of us have married that kind of siren. (I won't say which of us.)

It's all good here, but I need to point to your vocals - particularly your talent for well-placed harmonies - which are in top form. I don't think I ever told you that but the harmonies here and elsewhere are a real gift to your arrangements.

Hey Bob
Thanks for stoppin in, Harmony is one of my favorite things about music, but perhaps I also use it a lot because Im afraid to let a lead vocal sit there naked. who knows. Thanks again.

Hiding the voice behind the voice
LOL. I just want to add an AMEN to what you said: I'll do anything to hide my naked voice. Harmony, doubling tracks and using effects on one, you name it!
