Joe Bob was out in the corn plow
When the saucers came
They zapped him with a ray,
Then they took his cows away

Betty lou, she saw it too,
So did uncle Moe -
At night his dentures glow,
Proof enough, it's really so

And as the spaceships left,
A faint moo was herd throughout the sky,
A bovine cry!

As to their destiny,
Betty lou, she has a firm belief
that Mars needs beef




---Journey Back to Mars---




And they will soon come back,
From their planet oh so far away
Cause Mars needs Hay

We commemorate the day
The saucers took the herd,
The loss Joe Bob incurred
Set him straight, now he's insured.

And all our eyes look to the skies¦.

Worthy of a spot with classic new-wave like the Rezillos and the Cramps. Funny and twisted.

I appear to have missed something. I can download a song of this quality for free? What's the catch?

Wow, I've been so busy promoting my band in S.F. that I forgot I had songs posted here. Thanks for the wonderful warm thoughts Ponkey & anDroidfrisBee. I'll have to start making more demos with my garage band sometime soon. Check out my band at www.myspace.com/windowpanes

This is great!!! I love space rock... the lyrics are fantastic. Rock this good is becoming increasingly hard to find on iCompositions - keep up the great work!!
...
About 2nd Avenue... feel free to try your own melodies, but if you check out the version with "Temp. Vocals" I already had some melodies/harmonies written. I just don't like my voice.

Flippin'eck thats great, not normally my kinda thing, but thats great. You're pushing the level up on icomps by posting stuff like that on here. It's so not my kind of rock that I feel I shouldn't like it but I do, I love it, good rock is good rock. Your vocals on this one remind me of 70's Bowie, music a bit roxy music. Drums are great..loop or live ?

Oops....downloaded this since I enjoyed it so much, but forgot to leave comments...

This is another of the finest songs on iComp, worthy of iTunes. Some of you guys better start selling your songs, or you're just simply selling yourself short!

Some of the best: Granz, Diversion, Billy Reid (and other up and coming artists)...

Looking forward to more.

Yeah!. Like some sick cross between the Dead Kennedys and Elvis Costello. Great wall of sound. This very much so rocks. I think maybe the drums could be a little louder and there are times when the vocals could be more foreward or louder. Just nits though.

Hey, RabbitMan said what I was going to say! (actually, I think I may have actually written that while he was logged onto my computer - too many users in this house.) Anyway, that is what I think... and now you get double the stars!

Sooo tight and good... really is amazing how good this is compared to what is on commercial radio -- are you playing everything? Love the guitar sounds especially and how you made the drums sound as good as they do. This was as informative to me as it was entertaining. Makes me realize how much better my own stuff can be. The best! I am a new fan...

Favorite part:

dit-dit-dit-dit "They commemorate the day, the saucers took the herd...the loss JoeBob incurred...set him straight, now he's insured."

Nice "Children of the Sun" sound effects at the end.

That sound effect was attained using two slide whistles and double tracking each. One plastic red one and one large silver one. I was going for the sound of a theramin. LOL! Was a lot of fun!

theDRP Artist yes, yes, he said. you've entertained me. this feels very late 70's punk to me, a solid production and a wailing melody. tight, but loose enough for purist. and i always dig a song about our friends from other planets. they don't get enouhg PT

I thought it was great. I think the vocals could have been better but oh well. Thought the ending was really cool, very spacey (which the dictionary says isn't a word but whatever.)

Well, this song proves it once and for all -- you have fully got your own unique sound...and it's freakin' cool. Cool is the word. Cool. Very cool. The production is killer and those wreep-hwooosh little guitar slide things are genius. So is the 'Kill All Humans' 50s outer space sound near the end. You got some kind of theremin foot switch or something? In the shed here I have 15 inch monitors with horns about 2 feet from my head. Man, I gotta tell you, when I push the 'whipin' loud' button and look up at the ceiling...this song totally kills it. I'm on my 4th listen right now and it keeps sounding better. This will really help with my controversial experiments on felony loudness.

Thanks man,

-borris

yeah, seriously...get signed, go on world tour, get on MTV2, do an acoustic set, experiment with an electronica album and then rediscover your roots, have a baby with a supermodel hottie girlfriend, go on world tour again, put out a controversial music video that gets a million hits on youtube, play some free concerts to support a cause everybody believes in but does nothing about, win a grammy, do an iPod commercial, more world tours, then release a best of album.

I'll buy that best of album. This song would be on it.
