Adrianna and Johnny

I usually do not write song descriptions. I am making an exception for this piece. The genesis occurred like this. I was thinking about Serge Gainsbourg's "je t'aime moi ne plus". Because of Jane Birken's breathy imitation of an orgasm in that piece it was publicly denounced by the Vatican. I liked that. Really. One would think that the pope had better things to do than hang around listening to French eroto-pop. This brought to mind Jungle Fever by Les Chakachas which also features an imitation orgasm. It occurred to me that it might be interesting to make a composition that featured a more full on encounter. So I thought I would look for a pornographic video online and grab the audio. I found one I liked and began slicing it up to a more manageable size. What happened as I began cutting it down and distilling it to it's essence, was that a story began to emerge. I discovered that it involved a more complex set of emotions and human interactions than was readily apparent. It contains a combination of brutal honesty and little lies that are the stuff of tragedy. I hope you find it interesting.

very interesting
Your song description is very interesting.
The the music and sample combines to create quite a menacing feel to this piece... Almost disturbing. Not in a bad way though as it takes a lot to create such a thought provoking stuff!
Always been a big fan of the big "O" in songs ever since rocket queen pumped into my head!!

much thanks
Yes. There is a real dark under current that runs juxtaposed to the lightness of the banter. And I think it is quite dance-able too. thanks again.

they have those online? :-)
Well done, the unstoppable music, the pulsing guitar work, while maintaining the storyline. This is a little heavier and faster than the twisted darkwave stuff by the obscure old band "Enrapture", but the disturbing deviant storyline is similar. I thought you really laid this out well, so that even though the music was a bit repetitive, it was compelling and gritty and inertial, and spreading the dialogue out like that kept the listener's interest throughout... well, mine anyway :-) Although, now I need to take a cold mental shower.

I wanted it to be big and spread out and danceable. I intend to use it as a guitar jam when playing out. I know it is long and I appreciate your patient listen.

your double-entendres there gave me a big smile, and never go un-noticed here. I think I even see them when they aren't there :-)

this was a great idea conceptually AND is a good listen as well. her voice sounds like a musicla part after awhile of hearing it. started to wonder if yu put it into a sampler and played a melody, but then the music dropped out, and I could hear that she was just doing her thing. excellent. serge would be proud.
